I'm falling so behind with my blogvisiting.....hopefully after a while my poor brain will get used to all this THINKING and I'll get myself into some sort of regime. At the moment I've been trying to get up really early and visiting as many of you as I can.....apologies to those that I'm missing.
My childhood was very strict and my parents of the "Children should be seen and not heard" and "Do as I tell you not as I do" ilk; in school we accepted verbatim what the teacher's taught us and in my relationships before I met Mick I always "knew my place"; so it's quite a shock to suddenly be asked to form my own opinions about Sociology, History and Literature. To be asked by a teacher/tutor "What do you think" and to be able to answer honestly without thinking "Well what do you WANT me to say" seems so alien. I guess I'll get used to it after a while.
It's making the homework very difficult; as much as I know I should write my own view of things I'm constantly screwing my work up and aiming it towards the nearest rubbish bin convinced that my thoughts may be WRONG!
At least the Literature Homework is just to do some creative writing concentrating on creating atmosphere or character....that can't be too difficult....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
