hey, i updated my profile. well, signature. i figure after 200 posts, i should say something different. blargh. i am exhausted. i hate my physics class. my professor talks in maths and buzzes like a fridge. a friend of mine is wandering around morocco. i wish i were wandering around morocco. oh well. here's to another night at home reading kierkegaard!

Kierkegaard's Guide to Breaking Up:

If you are a Knight of Faith, and your defining commitment (i.e., significant other) has left you, you must internalize your memory of him or her and resign yourself to a life without them. Henceforth, no one will bear the same level of importance to you. You have transcended lower immediacy (infatuations, lusts, crushes). You are independent. Your priority now is to answer to what is ethical. You do right. You save puppies from the animal shelter.

You build walls around yourself and are completely inacessible. How can the Knight of Resignation live like this? This isn't living. What a load of bollocks. Kierkegaard should know plenty of love and breaking up, as he ditched his fiancee, too, for no apparent reason.

Maybe I need to ditch class more often. This is getting to me.

LMAO!

Oh, honey, that was good. Thank the gods that I haven't had to touch the old Knight O'Faith himself since college.

You have my sincere sympathy, but clearly, you don't need it. You found a modern application of Kierkegaard, and that in and of itself is practically miraculous.

Don't quite understand the post, now that I think about it I don't get the sig either. So, what's up with the molasses? Can it be used as a substitue for chocolate syrup and whipped cream or are you trying to get a bug collection on your tramp? Okay maybe I shouldn't shorten trampoline...

the sig is whatever you make of it.

the post itself is about the definition of faith and how one can achieve true faith and identity.

Read Kierkegaard's 'Fear and Trembling' for more information
