The thought of what I'll do with my major makes me want to vomit. If one more person asks me for my post-graduation plans I'm going to respond, "Well, I'll be going to jail as an English major for shoving my moleskin and fountain pen up your..."
But, until my major becomes the reason for my future behind bars, I'm going to embrace it. This blog entry is going to pay homage to it and glorify the wonderful phenomenon of literary jewelry on Etsy.
I know literary jewelry may not sound as super cool to everyone, or hardly anyone, as it does to me, but by the end of this blog I hope you'll at least kind of appreciate at least some of its awesomeness. I like to aim high.
I'm totally getting these. After all, in the words of great philosopher René Descartes, "I think, therefore I am," and in my own words, these earrings are freaking adorablepants.
You can pick out one of your favorite quotes, literary or otherwise, and get them imprinted on these fabulous leather wrap bracelets. This means possible options include:
"Never let me slip, cause if I slip, then I'm slipping." -Dr. Dre
"I'm the butt police, and I'm looking at your rear, rear, rear." -Eminem
^Even if you lose friends because of this last quote, who cares? Grandma will always love you and fight off them haters:
Just stop and smell the roses
I may be older than Moses
oh yeah, but I’m-a fight you off
like I fight osteoporosis
-Grandma: The Rap
These pretty rings feature words from literary classics. Plus, they're a more sophisticated but equally effective alternative to brass knuckles.
Feeling lonely? Literary jewelry's gotchu.
Feeling angry? Literary jewelry's gotchu. We can find whoever made this necklace and...after all, I'm probably going to jail anyway.
