Hello again wordpress. I have a few minutes before my Downton Abbey will load, so I suppose I’ll spend it here, chatting to the faceless. There are a few things on my mind today. Well, questions.
Why invest in relationships with temporary associates/people? My coop teacher and I have a few rough patches that he is all eager to smooth out; but I’m like — dude, we only have a week left together — why bother? Hence, the question.
Is my ego really bigger than my brain? I’m on that scary post-baccalaureate first job hunt — ooooh. Prospects WERE good; there was a big (relatively speaking) wave of library jobs. I watched them come…and go. And now I have to sit back and accept that ANY job is a good job. I worked custodial my last on-campus semester; am I too good for that now that I have a shiny piece of paper?
How can we really expect to build women’s self-image when women are trained moochers? Women enter marriage expecting to be provided for. Hmmmmmm….so many depressed housewives in Utah. Hmmmm…..CONNECTION anyone? What makes people most happy? Having a Purpose. Homebodies contribute to the home; workers contribute to the world. We need purpose on the microcosmic AND macrocosmic scales. [The Community] patronizes women, pats them on the head, tells them how special they are, how needed…but without being given Responsibility, those are just some very big, very empty, words.
How many people did I just miff?
IS DOWNTON ABBEY EVER GOING TO LOAD?? And, why do I like the show anyways? It’s a bit cheap…and melodramatic…and far-out…
I must be shallow 🙂 because give me some pretty costumes and an English accent and I AM SO THERE.
