so my last round of school assessments before my trials and then hsc just finished, and so i'm taking a break (ha!) to share things before i return to this weekend's assignments. :D?(1)
this reimagining of the mahabharata, 18 Days
by Grant Morrison and Mukesh Singh is perhaps the most gorgeous thing i have ever seen. for the interested, the mahabharata is one of india's most significant pseudo-historical epic tales. as most of indian's history goes, it's essentially about gods becoming involved in human battles for power and rule of kingdoms, as so much of indian history is, and it's fascinating.
well, i enjoy it. for me, i'm more interested in the historical cultural side of hinduism, although i don't entirely believe in it, and i tend to think that astrology is complete bullshit, but anyway, i digress. this reimagining is kind of really really
cool and ig i can tell you guys who people are if you want!(2)
this article about fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva aka stone man syndrome; the girl who turned to bone
by carl zimmer, is another really interesting thing, and it's really well written imo. i want more articles like this all the time tbh. sighs i have no interest in doing medicine but i find it really interesting?? :c
;; i miss making lj posts like this even though no-one is gonna read this probably. anyways, back to schoolwork, writing a speech on the shipping news and doing my drama design project and my ancient history presentation. ah ha ha ha ha ha.
