The science of common sense
I swear to Jesus people over think way too many things! I'm writing this because we have to read a book in English class called Sophie's World (about the history of Philosophy).... It's pretty good but I continually find myself completely bored out of my mind! My English teacher says there's a fine line between "Literature" and "stories" and i completely get that.. but literary authors seem to over think their stories.. It's not creative at all!!! They base it off everyday things that could happen to anyone...and there's usually some life lesson involved.. but where's the fun in that? It's meant to be thought about, not for enjoyment. English teachers are the worst about it if you ask me... They can write 300 page papers over a simple book and put even more thought into it than the author ever did! Life is meant to enjoy, not to spend worrying about society and politics!
