Almost coming to the end of this section of assignment and essays, and it is great! Probably been five years since I've actually written an essay, so time will tell if the work has paid off, but looking forward to a week, with no uni, and no work! I can imagine though, coming back to uni after a weeks, break and feeling like i havent done much at all... but being unproductive for a week, is something I am actually looking forward to!
Only just realising that these activities should all be posted... this a a response to an activity we did on "The Other Wife"!
“The Other Wife”
I feel that the envious emotion Alice feels against the other wife is triggered from the question she asks herself….. “what more did she want from him?” This begins the ball rolling in her mind as to what imperfection did this woman find, why did she not find happiness with him, is she (Alice) settling with him? Could she (Alice) do better?
The way Alice refers to the other wife as “superior; leading from dissatisfied and difficult to superior, could indicate her self uncertainty too, not whether or not this woman is just picky, selfish and/or difficult to satisfy, or more importantly better than Marc.
The question of the ‘ex’ is one of great relevance to many in their current relationships with the person I think is due to the face that we find insight into our own relationships whether positive or negative, by learning about their flaws as a couple.
Im a gemini, so things just can't be that simple! I'd be taking winter if its ski land, or summer if beaches were available.... otherwise, i hate the summer when i have no where to cool off, and the day consists of me getting all hot and clammy outside, so feeling 'fresher' being in side in the air con, when the sun is so gorgeous outside! And same really applies for winter... strange i know.... but unless i'm in skiing gear and enjoying the benefits of freezing weather, but skiing down some beautiful tree lined slopes.... I'd rather be inside (wishing it was beautifully sunny outside, and dreaming of the days when i can be hot and clammy agian).
begun to listen to fever ray a lot more these days... and maybe due to my mood or where i am at at the moment, every word seems to be part of the best lyrics i have heard in a long time... they dont really even make any specific connection to each other or me, but i like it!
when i grow up i want to be a forester run through the moss on high heels that's what i'll do throwing out boomerang waiting for it to come back to me
when i grow up i want to live near the sea crab claws and bottles of rum that's what i'll have staring at the seashell waiting for it to embrace me
i put my soul in what i do last night i drew a funny man with dark eyes and a hanging tongue it goes way bad i never liked a sad look from someone who wants to be loved by you
i'm very good with plants when my friends are away they let me keep the soil moist on the seventh day i rest for a minute or two then back on my feet and cry for you
you've got cucumbers on your eyes too much time spent on nothing waiting for a moment to arise the face in the ceiling and arms too long i wait for him to catch me
i would have to say, writing pointless lists or reminders and notes in my schedule (diary). Things that i really dont need a list for, such as what to do tonight: go home gym shower (i mean, is that necessary to make a note of) etc. But then again, i try not to do things that don't entertain me or i enjoy, so its not that often i find the stuff i'm listening to that boring!
This internet based way of free speech, discussion, and an ability to connect and hear of what people you may not normally hear think, is fantastic. But i am struggling with the difference i find in picking up a pen, to write freely and express thought, rather than sitting at a computer typing on a keyboard...something i relate to a task or a nessecity.
