2/2/16 | 11:45 I enrolled in uni courses today and I’m stressing massively over whether I’ve done it correctly or not and whether I need to go to the enrollment advice session tomorrow even though I’ve already enrolled. I was not mentally prepared for the amount of stress I’m currently experiencing.

“Like Jekyll, Walter White is very prideful, and his bad side had mostly been kept in check by fear of societal disapproval. Jekyll confesses to living a double life, one of virtue, one of shame, long before taking his magic drug that allows the sins he commits as Hyde to never be associated with the respectable doctor and gentleman he wishes to be seen as. Similarly, Walter White needs to be seen as a good man, a good husband, and a good father, even and mostly especially when he’s not. This over-preening pride affects his criminal endeavors too, as he demands respect for the quality of the drugs he makes and the powerful people he’s defeated.

Like Jekyll, Walter White creates an alter ego named as a winking joke at his double life. Jekyll calls his other half “Hyde” because he can put on and take off that identity as a second skin. Walter’s nom du crime is “Heisenberg,” after the physicist famous for his Uncertainty Principle and his theories on the dual nature of photons. Walter White uses a shaved head, a black pork pie hat and sunglasses to create a visual difference between his two identities, and the show hints that Heisenberg may be a separate identity, like when the sight of his hat tempts “mild-mannered” Walter White into buying a muscle car. But, of course, Heisenberg is just a made up name, and Walter is the monster who lies, cheat, and kills to protect himself and get what he wants.”

Western depictions of mental illness often tend toward the dramatic. Shows like House often showcase rare disorders or extreme versions of a diagnosis when they mention mental illness at all: the schizophrenic woman who sees fire where there isn’t any, a mute patient who is able to speak after one redeeming event, or the man who had bipolar disorder and kept it secret after opting for an…

You know what would be amazing?
A Jekyll and Hyde convention! But with everything!
We’re gonna split the building in sections and every section is for a special part of Jekyll and Hyde.
You know. Over there is anything ITV Jekyll and Hyde related.
A room for the novel itself, and one for BBC’s Jekyll and so on!
A place for all the Jekyll and Hyde fandom to meet.
And of course all the actors we can get!
We’ll make costumes and some creatives out there can sell their art or whatever it is they make!
And you could walk around and maybe even discover a new side of Jekyll and Hyde!


Guys.
This would be so amazing!
Or am I the only one?

Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson (13 November 1850 – 3 December 1894) was a Scottish novelist, poet, essayist, and travel writer. His most famous works are Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. A literary celebrity during his lifetime, Stevenson now ranks among the 26 most translated authors in the world. His works have been admired by many other writers, including Jorge Luis Borges, Bertolt Brecht, Marcel Proust, Arthur Conan Doyle, Henry James, Cesare Pavese, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling, Jack London, Vladimir Nabokov, J. M. Barrie, and G. K. Chesterton, who said of him that he “seemed to pick the right word up on the point of his pen, like a man playing spillikins.” […] On 3 December 1894, Stevenson was talking to his wife and straining to open a bottle of wine when he suddenly exclaimed, “What’s that!” asking his wife “Does my face look strange?” and collapsed.He died within a few hours, probably of a cerebral hemorrhage. He was forty-four years old. The Samoans insisted on surrounding his body with a watch-guard during the night and on bearing their Tusitala upon their shoulders to nearby Mount Vaea, where they buried him on a spot overlooking the sea.
