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.

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.
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.

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.
