Lately, Christianity has been pissing me off. Majorly. All the rules and judgements, and going to church and hearing about how bad we are and really being brought down by all of the negativity. PRAISE JESUS, BOW DOWN AND GIVE UP YOUR SOUL FOR THOU AREN'T PURE. How practical is that? How practical is being told you should worship something with all of your heart, pray over every single decision you plan to make, and obey a strict code of rules or face the wrath of Satan and Hell. And secondly, how 'corporate' some churches are becoming. I was at a fairly large Methodist church with a congregation topping 3,000 loyal church goers, and I felt like the focus was less on a spiritual connection and more on the finances and politics of the church. Same goes for Vatican city. So much of it is fake earthly power and money that people think will bring them to salvation and make them better people. I guess the same applies to most religions though. But Christianity has really been pissing on my lawn lately.
Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
all these papers and projects for classes should be optional at differing due dates. And I can translate this desire into MBTI theory:
As we all know, unless your class is something like english or the like, generally all of the big assignments come later in the semester. A common trend I've noticed is, near the end all your papers and projects piled up and due around the same time you should be studying for exams. I believe this is actually horrible for strong Perceivers such as meself, IMO. I think this is counter-intuitive, and that some mbti whores might believe perceivers would rather have their due dates way in the future, so they can do what they're famous for. However, this type of assignment pattern that is so common more suits judgers. Judgers can look at a deadline in the distance and work at it early or at least have enough motivation/interest to still push to get it done later on. A Perceiver should have earlier deadlines that are spread out among each other because after all that time they may lose interest and not do their best (even when they're cramming).
All of this time I could have been enjoying the cool-down portion of the semester as the work load wanes alongside my interest in still showing up to classes and/or actually giving a shit. But I'm forced to live in a J society, where all the deadlines are at the second to last week and by that time I'm way over school.
