"The most picturesque McDonald’s in the world’ - Yangshuo, Guangxi province, China
So I’m taking a poetry course and we have some strict deadlines. But whenever I’m struggling, everyone who hasn’t ever written a poem in their lives say things like ‘push through, it will come to you!!’ And ‘take your time and inspiration will strike’ and its just so effing patronising. I know they mean it in a nice way but creative writing hardly ever comes easily and I hate to be a snob but I wish they’d shut up.
I love it when photography could be painting. And painting could be photography. It kinda restores my faith in photography as art.
So I’m writing about Rape for my assessment in Renaissance English, and I am FINALLY getting all passionate about it and angry and using powerful words and I am so happy, because writing 2,000 words out of your own will can make any topic seem boring and arduous. And the topic of rape should neither be perceived, nor written about like that.
I’ve watched the ‘Hard Out Here’ video multiple times now and I’ve read all the reasons why it’s supposedly racist, but maybe instead of perpetuating racial inequality, the video was also aimed to show how black women especially are used as objects and the problems of doing so. I think maybe Lily Allen was trying to tackle both misogyny and racism here, but maybe it just wasn’t explicit enough, idk
absolutely knackering two days ahhhh, met all the inlaws and my boo graduated and then did a speech infront of 3,000 people, so pretty big. but tiring. and stressful. and i have another two weeks of stress but then all will be well.
woww, can’t believe this blog is 4 years old. And now I have about 8 more on the go. I really believe that taking this poetry course at uni has been one of the best things I’ve ever done. I’m putting a lot more imagination into everything I do and all of a sudden, essay writing isn’t as laborious or as intimidating.
