Old thread, but I went to the caucus too! I of course saw many votes for Bernie, but I found that the Hillary supporters were actually a tad more respectful. At the beginning we agreed to vote for the other candidate if they won the nomination, to prevent Trump from coming into office. It was generally a bit messy and chaotic, we had to recount three times and it took a long time to find delegates.

I was kind of Christian for most of my life, I went to Sunday school and read the kids Bible. I chose to ignore the more surface level sins and focus on the main messages of acceptance brought by Christ. However, these past few years I felt like I was faking believing in anything, much less a God. But the ideas of Wiccanism appealed to me most. So for the past four years I've gone between Wiccanism, agnosticism and atheism.

I'm reading Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. It's a coming of age thing set in the late 80s, with LGBT and racial themes featuring. Good YA read.

I'm currently reading Ironside by Holly Black. It's the third part of an urban fantasy series that I picked up on a whim. It's good YA fiction in my opinion, but not quite dystopian like other YA novels. Would recommend!

You can see how tired Obama is of this. We all are. My condolences to the families.

I'm reading The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien. It's a bit slow, but I enjoy it.

In sites like Reddit when things kind of just blow by, posting seems kind of useless, why post when no one will hear? But Hubski is smaller, so commenting and posting is easier. The fear of people not liking it is strong for me though.

Not free, sorry, but I just finished Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh, and I would highly recommend it for laughs and interesting perspective.

I love Sense8 for that slice of life aspect, seeing how everyone had their struggles and watching everyone work together was amazing.

lesseffects  ·  link  ·  parent  ·  post: What are you reading this week?

Yeah it is pretty simple at first, however it is good to reread sections and whatnot because of the amount of characters you have to keep track of. It also helps with creating theories if you're into that sort of thing

I'm reading The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets, by Barbara G. Walker. It's good for on the go reading since it's a collection of small stories and facts.

For me, being human means being able to change history and our nature. We are able to acknowledge the past, and can feel deeply enough to not repeat it.
