Day Off And Reviews…

Begum Nusrat Bhutto passed away yesterday so we have a day off. I actually had my Media Studies mid-term paper today, now scheduled for the 31st of October. I wanted it to be over and done with. But what can be done now.

I desperately need a book review, contemporary preferably. Can someone help me out? Pretty please. I’ll love you forever. And you’ll have your name immortalized in the second issue of Reality Romanticized.

I’m currently writing a review on Emily Dickinson and a few of her oh-so-amazing poems. Did you know that she almost always wore white? And that she didn’t come out of her room for months at end? And that she spelled her name childishly for most of her life, as in Emilie?

But she was awesome.

Here’s my favorite poem of hers:

A sepal, petal, and a thorn
Upon a common summer’s morn—
A flask of Dew—A Bee or two—
A Breeze—a caper in the trees—
And I’m a Rose!

Two words. Awe-some

    We had a cultural event to organize today and it got called off. I don’t know whether to be sad or happy.

    I don’t know… you amaze me sometimes (in a good way, of course). Just saying.

    Not sure what type of book you require but here are three different types for you to consider , first this is a large book!
    1) Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China is a family history that spans a century, recounting the lives of three female generations in China. It is written by Jung Chang .
    2)The Lovely Bones is a 2002 novel by Alice Sebold. It is the story of a teenage girl who, after being raped and murdered, watches from her personal Heaven as her family and friends struggle to move on with their lives while she comes to terms with her own death.
    3) Circle of Friends is a 1990 novel by Maeve Binchy, set in rural Ireland during the 1950s and deals with socialisation and love for female college students at the time.
    I can recommend all three but they may not be what you meant but there you go anyway!
    As for having to miss you exam module I think that is most unfair as we all know how we get physiced up for exams!! Have a good day today!! xx

    I did know those things about her. I have also been to the room that she spent months at a time in. And one the early poems I memorized was hers. I always thought it was interesting that she didn’t often use titles.

    I love Emily Dickinson. My favorite poems of her are “My Life had stood – a Loaded Gun” and “I Started Early – Took My Dog.”
