Don't get me wrong; poetry is awesome. However trying to decode dense Whitman metaphor without any guide as to paper topic or length is not awesome. Also not awesome is him saying that it must be perfect.

On another note, I supreme LOLed while procrastinating:

I love Beauty and the Beast. )
I have loved the Disney movie as long as I can remember. I think I just love that type of romance. Beauty and the Beast, Labyrinth, the myth of Hades and Persephone, Pride and Prejudice, etc. I just love me some pure masculinity. I am very self-actualized and a quasi-feminist, but Captain Von Trapp makes me weak at the knees. I'm very much attracted to the man who commands a presence something fierce, is very assured in his manliness, and yet is so vulnerable in love. I eat this up with a spoon. Mmmm, manly and powerful.

On a completely unrelated note, I'm taking a poetry class that I had to beg to get into this semester. It's a cool class, but I have yet to say anything of value, which is a little disheartening. However, our assignment for tomorrow was to read "Daddy" by Sylvia Plath. It is a very beautiful and very sad poem. The hardest part of this class is that we have to write daily paragraphs responding to what we have read, which is usually 4 or so poems. I really hate this because there are no real parameters and I'm not sure what he wants.
I just want to turn my book in and he can decipher my notes. )
