Yesterday I wrote about the Producerbull/Consumercuck dichotomy. I noticed that I have actually not written much in the last month, a consequence of just not alotting enough time to it. There is no excuse. You won’t see me writing ‘I was really busy and blah blah blah’. I had the time, I could’ve made the time, but I didn’t. There you go, telling it like it is.
Not that I haven’t been busy. I’ve been studying a lot, reading philosophy books and am currently reading The Star Rover by Jack London, about which I’m going to write an essay for Uni. Probably with the perspective of ‘There are not a lot of women featured in this book, and that adds to the value of the story’. A risky point to make when you take into account I will probably be graded by a woman (a lot of my professors are women, there is a huge lack of men teaching Humanities in my opinion) and since she will be educated probably a seething feminist.
It’d be easier to write something in line with current ‘progressive’ thinking, but where’s the challenge in that? I don’t want to add to the legions of people who cry about a non existent gender pay gap. The challenge lies in writing a decent argument in line with my beliefs, which may or may not oppose the beliefs of my professor, and provide new insights as to why having more men in a story about escaping a prison via the subconscious might disprove the gender spirituality gap,
So, enough to do tomorrow.
In other news, I made two tests today, on which I scored 80/100 and 67.5/100 respectively. Which is not bad, my studying has paid off. If I pass my written examination I will have passed my Linguistics course for the block and don’t have to do it for the third time. Crossing my fingers.
It is how it is: if you put in more work, you get better results. The number of works Picasso has made is estimated to be 50,000. When I have read 50,000 books maybe I will be a great scholar. Maybe when I have made 50,000 drawings I will be a great artist. Or I could write 50,000 blog posts, then I will be a great writer. Teaching 50,000 children to be a good teacher?
Specialize, specialize. Being a master at something means the Big Pay-off.
Until next time.
