The Pilgrimage to Cythera (1718-1721) - Jean-Antoine Watteau
French Rococo
*embellished re-paint of The Embarkation for Cythera (1717)

Today in Arts and Western Culture I was told this painting was Baroque. And when Is tarted to list its numerous Rococo qualities I was told “ehh” It’s early Rococo as in Rococo hadn;t fully developed yet. Sometimes I want to throw my textbook at m professor.

Human Development Today

Teacher: *talking about cesarean births*
Girl A: I would never have a C-Section
Girl B: Why?
Girl A: The scar! It takes for ever to heal and your abs look all ugly.
Girl B: But what if you're baby's in breach or gonna die
Girl A: I don't care, no way!
Me: TEACHER! I've changed my mind. I do believe in sterilization of people who aren't deemed fit to be parents. All for it now.

Anecdote in memorial

Today a dear professor passed away. I can just imagine her walking into heaven, seeing Bach and telling him about this crazy kid who strolled I to her class and asked if he (Bach) wasn’t the example of Baroque music to which she quickly set him (the student) on the right path. As we are all deeply saddened, this helps as best we can.

librarienne:

direcartographies:

fun fact: the reason that the plural of goose is geese but the plural of moose is not meese is because goose derives from an ancient germanic word undergoing strong declension, in the pattern of foot/feet and tooth/teeth, wherein oo is mutated to ee. however ‘moose’ is a native american word added to the english lexicon only ~400 years ago, and lacks the etymological reason to be pluralized in that way.

Oh baby.  Keep talking dirty to me.

height: 5’5”

timezone: Central

what time and date it is there: Too fricken late on a Monday Night (But my 8 a.m. got cancelled!)

average hours of sleep: Like 8 if I’m lucky, more like 6-7.

otps: I don’t have ships, I have Armadas. Armadas that get sunk all the time, but I have them none the less.

the last thing i googled: Frankenstein MD

first word that comes to mind: Tea? (This is a really faulty cognitive question here. Techincally the lat word is almost certainly going to be the last word I typed or what? or a relational word to the last word I typed. I put tea cause i want it to be an answer.)

what i last said to a family member: “Love You. Bye.) (WOO! College Life)

one place that makes me happy and why: My college campus. 

how many blankets i sleep under: I think it’s technically four.

favourite beverage: TEA! ALL THE TIME

the last movie i watched in the cinema: I feel like it was God’s not dead but I could be mistaken. I might have seen something this summer with my family and have blocked the memory.

three things i can’t live without: Material possessions? Books, Tea, and a computer. Spiritually? Church, Friends, and Education.

something i plan on learning: Korean at some point I guess?

a piece of advice for all my followers: Be passionate about something. Fall in love, have emotions, and have joy. Experience joy, don;t be afraid of getting hurt because that fear stops you from experiencig joy. Hang out with children because they know joy. 

you have to listen to this song: TCHAIKOVSKY! Anything by him, but specifically Capriccio Italien.

my blog(s): concerto4art-and-education and doublereedproblems 

i tag: EVERYONE!

Aka, he asks if he’s been whipped by Dido.
