Frogs Into Princes: Neuro Linguistic Programming -- Richard Bandler and John Grinder

It's the transcript of a conference on psychology given by the aforementioned authors detailing a branch of psychology dealing with using words and "anchors" to manipulate the way people think. Crazy-ass sh*t. Can be used to turn on a woman subconsciously.

My required English class sucked because it was all composition, so I didn't really get to read much, aside from sleep-inducing essays. I'm in one right now, though, where we read plays. So far, we've read Oedipus Rex, Othello, Hamlet, and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. And I'm to read A Doll's House by Monday.

Basically, not much different from what I read in high school.

^Ah the joys of required reading. Yeah alot of the books I read in high school were the same as the college ones. I guess that's what I get for being gifted when I was a wee high schooler:D

Hamlet's a good one! I like Shakespeare.
Scarlett: Rhett, Rhett... Rhett, if you go, where shall I go? What shall I do?
Rhett Butler: Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

Yes, that first English Comp Class...well...we all have to take it and I assure you living in the world of Acadamia...most people don't know how to write and it is the single most important skill you can learn in college...sorry to sound like a teacher here but if you can write, you can rule the world...I got my degree in art studio but all my paying jobs after college, I have gotten based on my writing skills. It seems boring...it really sucks...but its true...you need do it for the future...

Sorry Olivia...I didn't think anybody else would want to read it. :oops: :oops: My bad. You can ruin a book for me if you like. You can PM me the ending or something. :lol:


I've taken an English Class and a World Lit. class. I like writing essays so I did better in my English class. In my World Lit. class all we did was read and takes tests over what we read. I don't do good on tests. The good thing about my World Lit. class is all of the interested stories you will read....but that is depending on the teacher. The teacher I had was very old and she wasn't a very good teacher. It was frustrating.

Sorry to hear about this...you shouldn't have to put up with bad education! Remember--you are paying for it! Look in to colleges with distance education and other opportunities.

Thank You

Read (or watch) R&G Are Dead. If you're a fan of Hamlet and absurd, existential humor, you'll love it. I did, at least.

Totally all right. I probably wasn't going to finish it anyway.

I'm reading three books : Cowboys Don't Cry, the Diary of Anne Frank and The Wedding (the second part of the Notebook). So far, I only like Anne Frank's story, the other two are gay.

I am reading a book on alternative marriage cerimonies, because I am a big soppy girl (also because I'm getting married this summer). It is a very boring book indeed.

Just finished "Dogs eat wolves" by Martin Cruz Smith, a detective novel set partly in Chernobyl. It was pretty interesting, a bit dark though. :roll:

^Congratulations Princess! Yeah, I don't know whether I want the traditional style wedding or not. It's funny that when I was a really small kid, I wanted the church and everything. NOw, I want to be creative and do something different. I have a long way to go before I get married, even though I'm in college and all....:(


Let's see, I guess I can say I read the newspaper today. Sometimes I like to read up on current events.
Scarlett: Rhett, Rhett... Rhett, if you go, where shall I go? What shall I do?
