Hey--do you ever just flip open to a totally random Bible page sometimes just to see what it says?

I love words and their meanings but i hate the dictionary. it's useless when things like context clues exist imo

lol i get ish from my mom all the time about me disliking the dictionary. i just hate the thin pages and the time it takes to find the stupid word that--more often than not ISNT EVEN IN THERE. Yeah. Screw the dictionary. Because when I look up a word that I don't know, it's always an obscure word. And most dictionaries aren't good enough so why bother at all? (because i like big words--very much so--and i use them all of the time. Notsomuch on here since I'm trying to be normal and not all Emily Dickinson since you know since that's not too good conversationally-speaking ofc haha) ive read more than most people read in their whole lives i'd say i've read well over 100,000 books and I'm 23. I learned to read when I was 3. I am an only child so yeah, i was really bored so you can prob imagine how many books i must have read. so yeah, i love big words because i really like the way that older books were written--things like Jane Eyre, Dracula, Pride and Prejudice, Don Quixote etc--that kind of writing really enchants me. I just love the properness haha ^_^ v).

But i think it's cool that you like it--I wish I could!! Though I know all the words already anyway. But even so, I still look up words I already know because since I know so many the issue becomes having a hard time finding the right word, using a similar word that isn't the right word, etc.

I DO however like the thesaurus. It helps me a lot in my writing.

Nope, Bhagavad Gita is found in the Bhishma Parva. Four parvas (or books) before the Sauptika Parva, from which my random book quote came from.

Mahabharata
Bhisma Parva
Sauptika Parva

Glad you enjoyed it! I was thinking about doing another.
