Greetings

I found this forum haphazardly while searching for philosophical analysis of Thomas Hardy's novel Jude the Obscure. I've been interested and pursuing knowledge in existential philosophy for quite some time, even before I was educated enough to realize there was such a thing. My enlightenment, as I'm sure you all can empathize with, brought much understanding of the world, but also widened an already existing self perceived gap between myself and most other people. I suppose joining this forum is my attempt to meet like minds who are a bit more tolerant of my thoughts and feelings than the status quo.

On an entirely prosaic level, I am a Midwestern girl in my late 20s. I work a lot, as life necessitates, and struggle to find adequate time to write. I mostly write poetry these days but had a brief stint in journalism before I realized how soul crushing it was to a creative mind. I adore coffee, rainy days, mysticism, and the outdoors. Without books I'd have gone mad by now.

P.s. my screen name is homage to Oscar Wilde's beautiful quote.
