Paschal Joy

The last month or so this blog has been abandoned. I found myself lacking philosophical motivation. Lent is always hard on philosophers. I don’t realize the deep connection between what my body takes in and how my thoughts operate until I deprive myself of certain foods. Thoughts become muddy and sluggish. I struggle to make it out of bed in the morning, let alone think deeply about the world. Now, the Paschal fest is upon us, and my joy has been returned. This year away from my friends, my family, and my fiance has been a new, unique struggle for every aspect of my life. I am being tried to my foundations. I feel I have gotten some of my hope back now, for The Lord is risen. I am eating the foods I deprived myself of, and my strength is returning. I am keeping the feast, and it has reinvigorated me. I feel I care about my work again, where before I felt myself slip into apathy. I hope to continue my Tractatus project, as well as reading through PI. Also working on my writing sample for a Phd program. I hope my laziness will recede the closer the deadlines approach, and I pray I have what it takes.
