before i go into today, let me round up yesterday... i actually studied history! i was getting so fed-up with myself in the afternoon 'cause i kept dozing off somewhere between the proletariats and the bourgeois, between roosevelt and truman and between hitler and stalin. so i finally went down to the library and got myself a book to study! :) it was great, i feel like i know more all of a sudden. haha. and i found a book on names too, and GUESS WHAT!
There are at least 2 possibilities for the origin of Vanessa. The Greek word phanes means "butterfly", and one of the Greek mystic divinities was named Phanessa. Obviously, Vanessa may have evolved forthwith. A pretty soft-sounding name, Vanessa is just as much in style today as it was in past ages.
funky, right? haha, if you guys want to know what your names mean, just ring me up! haha, it's so fun. anyhoos. :) school was quite crappy today. i was reminded by jasmine that we've got a geog test tomorrow, on 3 lectures and none of which i've actually read. and then we had history, geog and econs lectures in a row. but i don't mind history and econs so much, as i always say. hmmm, actually on hindsight nothing much happened today. we just kinda went through the motions as we always do. -sighs- and to think, we're all leaving each other soon. -makes face- yuck.
i've got about a million things to do. reply shireen's email, study for the stupid geography test unless i come up with an idea to skip it entirely, and study for the history test too. oh, i've got comprehension to do, and the passage is shit hilarious. here's an extract:
Love's symptons are familiar enough: a drifting mooniness in thought and behaviour, the mad conceit that the entire universe has rolled itself into the person of the beloved, a conviction that no one on earthhas ever felt so torrentially about a fellow creature before. Love is ecstasy and torment, freedom and slavery. Poets and songwriters would be in a fine mess without it. Plus, it makes the world go round.
haha, that's the introduction paragraph. oh, and the conclusion paragraph:
If, however, science is going to probe and prod andthen announce that we are all scientifically fated to love -- and to love preprogrammed types --by our genes and chemicals, then a lot of people would just as soon not know. If there is truly a biological predisposition to love, as more and more scientists are beginning to believe, what follows is a recognition of the amazing diversity in the ways humans have chosen to express the feeling. The cartoon images of cavemen bopping cavewomen over the head and dragging them home by the hair? Love. Helen of Troy, subjecting her adopted city to 10 years of ruinous siege? Love. Romeo and Juliet. Ditto. Joe in Accounting making a fool of himself around the water cooler over Susan in Sales? Love. Like the universe, the more we learn about love, the more preposterous and mysterious it is likely to be.
Reaching for something in the distance,
So close you can almost taste it...
Release your inhibitions!
Feel the rain on your skin,
No one else can feel it for you!
Only you can let it in.
No one else, no one else,
Can speak the words on your lips!
Drench yourself in words unspoken!
Live your life with arms wide open!
Today is where your book begins.
The rest is still unwritten...
We've been conditioned to not make mistakes,
but I can't live that way.
