What I want to make clear, though, is that today when I was refraining from yelling in polity, I didn’t want to yell about polity. What I am finding, although we’re still very very early in the book of order, is that the polity of my denomination suits me extraordinarily well. I don’t want to say peculiarly well, because I haven’t studied the polity of another denominations, but everything save one single point has been either something that I openly and fully embrace, or something that I happily accept as an arbitrary but acceptable solution to an open question. What I was yelling about, or rather refraining from yelling about, is an issue with the institutionalized church as a Sunday morning club, and then how it laments about how people won’t become members, if they come at all, and how blind it is to why that might be.

If there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life.

Albert Camus (via rasputinmaxim)

At first I was like “yeah,” and then I was like “is despairing of life really not a way of eluding the implacable grandeur of life, Albert?” and then I was like “I’m bored”

Remember that time I bought an actual pile of drugstore mascaras and promised to review them for you? No? Bueller?
Second at bat: Maybelline Full N’ Soft
This is a total high school throwback mascara; I remember using the stuff religiously without complaint. Which begs the question, “why the hell did I stop,” and to which I have no answer. Probably because I’m always in search of bigger and better things that might not even exist. It’s a really great mascara for every day and delivers on its promise to make lashes full, long, and NOT crispy. Also washes off easily without taking half of your lashes with it. Little known fact: I hate using a separate makeup remover…hi is that not what your face wash should be doing?
It’s probably the closest thing that I’ve seen to my beloved Kiehl’s Mineral Mascara (RIP ;____;). Perfect for day time, not necessarily as dramatic as I like to be for special occassions.
Grade: A
