Recently I have enrolled in a “Victorian Fiction and its Reading Audience” course.
The first reading is Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre.
At first I thought this might have been the worst book I have ever read in my life….after thinking about I have to say….it IS the worst book I have read in my life!
I heard that this book is often described as “Chick Lit”, which I have to say explains a lot. The book is an autobiographical novel about an orphan (Jane Eyre) and her life journey as a governess (nanny) in England.
I think there are a couple movies made, but I will never be watching any of them….EVER!
If your a girl as sexist as it sounds you may enjoy this book…if you’ve every played Skyrim in you underwear I suggest you stay far away.
Weddings Look Good On You…(Part 2)
Another thing is I am not intimidated by other peoples lives. It does not bother me in the slightest that the average people grow old and get married and have children. HEY! Everybody! I am not from average people…please note I do not remember EVER meeting my biological father and my mother is currently not married and THAT ladies and gentlemen is what is normal to me!
Based off those two previous statements one would think that I should break the circle and create a new path for my last name….welp no thanks. I rather do that with my individual accomplishments. Baby mommas are nothing frowned upon in Caribbean culture and for that matter across, what I would argue, a significant part of the world.
It is safe to say that my perspective on life is just not fit for the “average North American person” and trust me I am by no mean an “above average human”.
This was bothering me and felt really good to write/vent on OH YEEEEAAAAHHHH RIP RANDY SAVAGE!
oh funny tidbit….folks at the wedding asked how come I wasn’t drinking -___- really?!?! 2013 and people are still amazed by others not drinking…Well ladies and gents my new style is to say I am a muslim. WIth the beard and all that they understood and left me alone. When I usually answer people with “oh i just don’t like too”, its not good enough and they have to do a full criminal mind behaviour investigate. It was cool the first few time but jeeeeeezzze after getting the treatment at WORK, SCHOOL, AND OTHER PLACES…PLEASE GIVE IT REST YA’LL CAN I LIVE?
Weddings Look Good On You…(PART 1)
Went to a friend of mine’s wedding yesterday and it was a beautiful event.
But sitting there watching the screen display the groom and bride’s history I could not help but to reflect on my own life.
Now for those that do not know. You have to understand this was my first wedding ever! It could be because i am not really personally close with my extended family why I’ve never attended one. I mean isn’t that why most people go to weddings? Are they not usally somehow related to the bride/groom?
But with that being said growing up marriage meant absolutely nothing to me. Never went to them as a child and keeping mind my last post’s framework (read here), it is safe to say I have no emotional attachment to them. Many of my friends brought their girls out and they dance and partied and all I could think to myself is….”not me no thanks”. Even staring up at the bride and groom, who I am extremely happy for by the way and glad they invited me to share in this wonderful occasion. But I kept saying to myself…”not me, don’t want that attention”. At an age where I understand the term “never say never” is obviously in full effect….but I am sorry ladies I just don’t see me walking down the aisle. This is for a number of reasons though (that I know unless the girl cared for me would not care about and I would be labelled a weirdo, which by the way is usually the way it goes.)
Now this is largely due to the fact that I find it highly enological that I will meet someone who I trust enough to even think about marriage. I will spare you the details but my past relationships have not gone so well. What amazes me is that really only two i really cared about ended. Two relationships have left a bad taste in my mouth lol. How can that be you ask? Well I will get into that later….look out for my next post (Brushing Your Teeth).
Going to stop for now look out for part two tomorrow!
