how can you do anything but caffeine on sunday morning.
the impotence of human endeavors means we are all fuccbois in the trash heap of history
how can you appreciate a sunday without a wake and bake?

Writers need addictions
wake up way to late
eat something
snort speed and study until I get hungry again
go to sleep in the morning

on sober days I surrender to my apathy and browse the internet for 8 hours straight
It's an agony really
Woke up at six, got some coffee and a Powerball ticket, sketched some figure studies, and read part of pic related. Definitely weaker than Fathers and Sons, but Turgenev's landscape imagery is fantastic as ever.

Once I'm back home I'll likely read for a bit, then listen to some music or perhaps watch a film. Maybe go for a late night walk. Typically I'd supplement these activities with a drink or two but I'm taking a break at the moment.
Revise for my masters chemical biology exam tomorrow. Oh god I'm so fucked

OP here, quality quiche, m8

Is the Revenant good? Had my uncle describe it to me like watching an awesome opera, but he was probably high when he saw it.

I've had better Sundays.
Worked until 3 am, slept from 5 am to 11 am
Woke up, groggy, congested in the sinuses. Vape to take the edge off.
Watch videos. Listen to music.
Back to internet.
Rainy. Working later.
Late shift again.
Blog is OVER
Interesting word. Thank you for sharing, I expect this language will help me a lot with expressing the concept after I sleep on it for a few nights to internalize.

Here you go, /lit/:

As long as you will never pretend evolution has reason, purpose, goals or functions again I'm happy m8
No can do friendo. Life has purpose: procreation. Any and all instances of "life" are machines with the singular intent of turning as much inert matter as possible into animate life.
Just because life procreates sometimes among other things doesn't mean that its purpose is procreation.You're anthropomorphising.

Once you try to insert your teleological notions into evolutionary theory you're entering the domain of religion, not science.

Top lel. Wake and bake is honestly one of the great pleasures of the contemporary literary lifestyle.

Jesus, man. Your mother is going to have to put you on your medication again. Fucking NEET's.

The latter.
I can't sleep in my flat anymore after I was swatted. It was the only safe space I had and now it's not.
I guess we all have our little quirks.
That sounds quite nice. Let's be honest though, you're probably vaping, not smoking. And if you took any notes they are in your phone not on a napkin.

At least you can write alot

OP here,

Quality voice, quality recording, shit Whitman.


>Military of any creed
Never again, m8

>this shitpost

Watched the Icebowl, shitgame by any mark, read some quality poetry during commercials, got drunk and wrote some new poems, 7/10 day so far.

Guy who did that recording here. Just something was reading this morning. What's your favorite Whitman? Or not necessarily favorite, just some of his best? I'm interested in your opinion, not trolling.

Astighfiruallah Akhi, Fajr time is 6 nowadays, if you're going to be a NEET at least pray on time. You're not doing anything anyways. And at least work part time and make your parents a little happy. Jinnah is under your mother's feets.

OP back again, honestly don't care enough for Whitman to know better, always found him like 19th Centrury Gary Snyder, but more gay.

Read more Octavio Paz, lad.

I do work part time, but in the evenings so Fajr is difficult since I tend to come back around midnight or later. Of course I admire you for your suggestion and hope that you maintain the strength that allows you to pray on time.
Went for a 16 mile run at 6 in NYC this morning. Maybe I saw you...

I played DotA 2 for a few hours with my friend after I couldn't fall asleep this morning. Once I was disappointed by that, I went to bed. Had a dream about my rabbit's head popping off and killing a frog. When I woke up, I went outside with my dog and peed. Ate some chicken casserole with my mom, and now I'm sitting here in front of my computer looking over Craigslist ads and sending the posters their spelling and grammatical mistakes.
I can't go a day without a game or two of Ability Draft, anything else is dull.

Quality run, m8. Unless you ran through the UES, it's not too likely. Unless you did, in which case, sup. Don't want to make this a meetup fag thread, but I'm on the /lit/ IRC pls no bully

How's everyone's ~Literary Evening~ going? I'm at least trying to finish on a high note before the week sucks my soul away.

>Reading pic for ants related
>drinking comfy tea
>bundled in bed
>n-no homo

I hate the game I just have fun with my friend because I know the game. I am beginning to hate everything.
What's your steamid; let's play together. I am very fond of you already.
Consider suicide, friends.

No thanks, man. I'm just ready to die.
You need some Dostoevsky and some violin sonatas of Beethoven to really cheer you up. It's good to be ready to die, but probably best not to dwell on it friend.
>using "bourgeois" unironically
Wew lad
