Nothing has meaning without context. In facts words themselves have no meaning. They are simply symbols, representations of thoughts and objects that we use to communicate with one another. We give words meaning and more often than not, written words have a deeper layer, a layer hidden just beneath the obvious message.
I’ve always been fascinated with code. A couple years ago, one winter break, bored with nothing else to do, I fell deep into the world of computer programming and I’ve been programming ever since. I’ve realized that computer code and written words aren’t too different from each other. Both hold deeper meaning than what’s shown at first glance and both have the power to create. The only difference is that with computer code you have got to look at it from a single perspective, the perspective of the computer. How will the computer react to a specific command? With literature, it’s completely up to the reader. The possibilities of interpretation are endless and reactions varied.
This blog has been set up with the intention of providing my unique perspective on different texts. The view of a 17 year old, high school girl who has been known to have a crazy streak, may be completely different from your personal perspective and this is what makes us all unique. You just read code differently than I do.
