Invenite hortum veritatis.

Or, so are the lyrics from Liberi Fatali. It means "Arise. Discover the truth of the Garden."

And I shall discover the truth. My truth.

Of course, if my truth just so happens to coincide with the truth of the rest of the world, I won't hesitate to say it.

Journalism is sounding more and more appealing. At least this way people will read the words I write in a news paper of some sort. I just hope that I don't wind up in the weekly Star...^^;

When I find that truth, and have the chance, I'll let the workd know. Until then, I'll just have to survive with being a diligent blogger.

Web Journalism
I must thank James for offering this suggestion to me when I PMed him not long ago concerning ways a person can become a journalist. Frankly, since I missed out on the school news paper, I didn't know how else to get the experience. He told me that I could try writing some articles or an online resource for no pay, simply so I could get a taste of deadlines and all of that.

I think it's a good idea, so I've been doing a little research. My findings include a few online pages that are analogous to the printed paper--like the St. Peterburg Times, for example--and a resource for those who are curious about this. I also found that web journalism will be considered for the Pulitzer Prize starting this year. That's really big stuff, if you follow.

I must thank James for that idea, and will do so ASAP.

In the meanwhile, I'll stop. The school library's computer is PMSing on me.

Memoirs of a Geisha
Memoirs of a Geisha is an excellent book, one of the best I've read in a while, and it is very high on my reccomendations list. So, I figured that I would try my hand at writing a review for this book.


Memoirs of a Geisha is the tale of a young Japanese girl and her journey through life, with all of the trials and tribulations that any girl must face at some point in time. Sayuri, as she comes to be called, is a very approachable woman who has quite the story to tell. Along with the problems one must face while growing up, she also faces the various trials that a Geisha must go through within their lives, and she tells it in such an honest and heartfelt way that the reader must relate with her.

Even more, this one didn't realize that she was reading a work of fiction until she had already finished the tale and was reading the afterword. If a book can enthrall the reader so deeply, then it is truely a work of art.

So, did I do a good job? Do you want to read the book? I honestly want to know what you think.

A Change of Pace
I figured that I'd change my style a little bit, seeing as they changed the schedule for Samurai Champloo and I'm currently hunting for any volume after 10 of DNAngel. Because of that, and the fact that I like the Bleach manga, I figured that I'd change my style a little.

I've been busy lately with my job and my new classes at the college (Composition II, Macroeconomics, and World Religions for those who are curious). In fact, I've been so busy that I can barely post on the OB! It sucks!!

Ah, well. At least I have a job.

I'm working on a few little ideas for stories and poems, so I'll post them next time I get a chance.
