Corinne  ·  1587 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What movie have you re-watched the most?

Oh man, The Truman Show is fantastic. My go-to re-watchable film is Hook. I haven't been able to watch it lately though because I get so depressed remembering that Robin Williams is gone.

Corinne  ·  1593 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: How Climate Scientists Feel About Climate Change Deniers .

This article makes me so angry. I feel so awful for these scientists and for us as a planet. Unfortunately, my dad, who is a scientist himself (not a climatologist, but a neuroscientist) is one of the many people who consistently calls climate change utter bs and says that anyone who studies it and devotes their life to it is wasting their time and/or is not a "real scientist." I don't even know how to discuss it with him because he is so dismissive. It's a sad day when various parts of our society refuse to listen to important topics like this one.

I completely and totally agree, although I have a soft spot for Hamlet because I feel like Horatio and I would be great friends. Haha.

Are you me? It's been 7 years since I graduated from high school and I can still recite this entire soliloquy from memory. Powerful stuff.

Oh my god! I love this show! Bernard is my spirit animal.

I'm probably going to be the only person here that posts this, but The Paradise. I became way too involved in the lives of the main characters. I'm not even a huge fan of department stores, so I was frankly shocked that I watched it all the way through. This is what happens when you become addicted to Netflix.

Corinne  ·  1594 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What are you reading this week?

I 'm finally getting around to reading the second book in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. I'm loving it so far!

Corinne  ·  1594 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What are you reading this week?

Oh man, enjoy! I loved that series. Sci-fi at its best.

Unfortunately, sometimes not even passion can trump the duties you don't like doing every day. :(

Corinne  ·  1595 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Religious Trauma Syndrome: How some organized religion leads to mental health problems

Wow, this article hit home.

"A common personality type is a person who is deeply emotional and thoughtful and who tends to throw themselves wholeheartedly into their endeavors. 'True believers' who then lose their faith feel more anger and depression and grief than those who simply went to church on Sunday." That is exactly how I felt when I lost my religion. And it's why I will never ever force religion on anyone, especially children.

Whoa, so cool! Props for putting this together! You can also add me to vocalist, if you would like. :)

Corinne  ·  1596 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Why are you what you are politically?

I was once very idealistic about politics. I sometimes reach that point again, particularly when I think about voting for Bernie Sanders. Unfortunately, hearing everyone close to me say that he doesn't have a chance to win in the primaries brings me back to that discouraged state.

I became a democratic socialist after a lot of personal education, as well as hearing the thoughts of my incredibly Tea Party conservative parents vs. my extremely liberal high school teachers, and then college professors. I've seen both extremes and eventually decided on my political views after a lot of thought. Ironically, I'm still a registered Republican because when I left home, I tried to change my political affiliation to Democrat, but my dad got to the mail first and threw my letter in the trash. Ah well. I live in Ohio now, so I'm planning on switching parties at the DMV soon! :)

What about you, jleopold?

Oh no, I'm sorry. Are you interning in a career you enjoy? In my case, I fell into two jobs that I had no interest in pursuing, so I'm sure that played a factor in how much I despised them. If you are, don't blame yourself! I think you'd be surprised to find out how many people begrudgingly go to work every day.

Corinne  ·  1597 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: How YouTubers discovered a human condition no one had talked about before

Thanks for sharing this! I found out that I felt this sensation around 2011 when the community on Youtube became popular. It was so bizarre to discover I wasn't the only one who had it.

Can any of you cause the sensation just by telling yourself to feel it? I've noticed lately that I can do that without even being triggered.

Corinne  ·  1597 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: A World Without Work

I think the whole idea of "work" needs to be re-defined. Let's say you're not currently employed. Does that mean you don't "work"? For some, yes. Some people are not motivated to do anything when they're unemployed. Other people keep themselves busy with whatever interests them. I would consider that work. Your idea of working at a nonprofit is one way of keeping one's self busy. I think people should be able to pursue whatever interests them, and in that way they can contribute to society.

I learned today that I'm a post-workist. The more you know!

But in all seriousness, I can definitely relate to this quote: "Purpose, meaning, identity, fulfillment, creativity, autonomy—all these things that positive psychology has shown us to be necessary for well-being are absent in the average job."

In order to pay the bills, I took on two jobs after college that I absolutely despised. They paid incredibly well, but I lost a little bit of my soul every day. Now that I'm free (and currently unemployed...yikes!), I'm much more creative. I have the time to learn a new instrument, to read, to write, and to exercise. I am so much happier and fulfilled now than when I was pressured to fit into the 9 to 5 lifestyle. I'm also not making any money, so there's the catch, I suppose. :(

I played piano for about 10 years, but now I'm taking up ukulele. I started about two months ago, and I can play about 10 songs. Unlike piano, I actually enjoy learning the uke because I can easily sing along as I strum.

Props to you for learning the tuba! I've heard that's a very difficult instrument. Have fun!

It's definitely skip-worthy (haha).

Corinne  ·  1598 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: How do you relax?

Kickboxing! You can be violent to air (or a punching bag) AND you're rewarded with endorphins. It's a win-win. :)

Corinne  ·  1598 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What was the latest book you read?

I just finished The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. While I enjoyed it in some sections, I was left ultimately dissatisfied. This may have been the fault of the advertising for the book though, as I was expecting "the next Harry Potter."

There was quite a lot of description in the novel, but not much action. The entire story spans a few decades, but not a lot changes during that time until the last few chapters.

Corinne  ·  1598 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What was the latest book you read?

Have you seen the movie based on the book? I was so excited to watch it, but was similarly disappointed.
