I'm just going to make pointless blogposts that no one really cares about. Are we cool with that? I hope we are.
I'm muscling my way through The Brothers Karamazov right now. I just finished "The Grand Inquisitor," and I have to say that this novel is easily becoming a candidate for my favorite novel. The Karamazov family is just amazingly entertaining, and I've really been thinking a lot about the religious discussion raised in the book. So yeah, I'm about 250 pages in, and I would punch through some more of it right now, but I'm stressing over the amount of homework I have.
And poetry. I've been trying to compose a poem for probably about three weeks, yet when I sit down and actually try to write down what's in my head, it doesn't sound right... as a result, I just scrapped the poem that I've been in the midst of writing, and so I'm just nonplussed as to what I should do. I can't help but feel that one day I'll get it down the way I want it to.
I think that I've pretty much quit competitive battling for good, and instead I just play Challenge Cup. It's not the same argument that everyone else has, the whole "oh, everyone uses rotom-w/scizor cores and i can't beat it that must mean it's cheap" thing, it's just that I'm genuinely bored when I play. I've kind of hit a wall. I've never hit any significant rankings on any ladder (granted, if I tried a little harder I could probably make top 100 on the Smogon ladder, but that's not much of an achievement), and now I'd just prefer to stick to Challenge Cup at the moment. Maybe that'll change in a few days or a few weeks, but right now I just want to play for fun. Not that competitive battling isn't fun, it's just that I'm... I don't know.. bored of it right now. I've been playing competitively since I was eleven, and I don't feel as if I've gotten much better.
Whatever. One more note: for a while I thought Opelucid was a drug, not a city...
That is all.
