Life

So... age old concern. My homework is cutting into my romantic life. At the end of next week I have an eight page paper due on whether the Irish monasteries of the twelfth century really did save the works of  great ancient philosophers, or the Humanists across Europe were the saviors; as the monks would not understood the meaning behind the works.... I know. I just fell asleep as well. Aristotle; such a funny guy.  During this time, I am acutely aware that there are guys to go kiss.

I am slowly coming to the conclusion that not only am I beginning my mid-life crisis, I am also attempting to re-live my early twenties. But, with a better credit score.

I find it strange and amusing that life has brought me to this place. A place of personal confidence, meaning finally feeling comfortable in my own skin, of being un-outcastable and truly strong in my personal beliefs, yet being in a social place of a twenty year old.

I like getting older. When you’re in your twenties you’re really forging for your future. Things take shape later on. -Crispin Glover

In the 6th and 7th centuries the Irish universities were famous throughout europe and some were co-ed. women had equal rights under the laws of brehon and could be doctors, lawyers, etc. Rome hated this and as the church became stronger this ceased. Th Vikings destroyed churches, schools, libraries during the 8th and 9th c. A disputed kingship invited the normans to invade. More destruction and more help from the church in the rabid erasement of any form of earlier irish culture. good luck on paper.
