I'm dictated by sod's law I can tell ya! SOD'S LAW!
Or Murphy's Law if you want to be nice and quaint about it. Anyhow, I poured my blood, sweat and tears into an English essay about 'The varying interpretations of Hamlet' those being psychological, a-historical, and my favourite of all, CONTEXTUAL! :D I love that topic, I mean, I got full marks for my module test in that!
The psychological approach was that of the ghastly 'Oedipus Complex'. I can tell you now that I am no psychology student, so I had troubles putting it into words, though I knew what it was all about and where it stemmed from etc. for I love to endeavour! However, this was horrible, and I went through this long essay by Dr. Ernest Jones, an advocate for this theory about Hamlet's indecision. He believes to put it simply, his attraction to his mother has lead to him subconsciously repressing his desires turning him mad, but also putting off killing his uncle. I had to encorporate it into the 'To be, or not to be, that is that question' soliloquy. As far as I'm concerned, this is university/ college standard, and I cannot claim that my English teacher is that great either. It was over last week's holiday that I had to do it, so I couldn't even ask her.
I'd worked so terribly hard for it, and yet she didn't ask for it in, she wants it for next week. I worked on that ghasty, low-quality essay from 2:30- midnight full-stop practically, and she doesn't want to look at the indescribably bad essay I wrote annoyed, tired and clueless?! So bad if I do say so myself! The ONE TIME I finish an essay, and I mean that literally, she doesn't even want to read it, and what's worse is that I'm going to have to do it again! >.<
Otherwise, life is going alright I suppose.
