Sometimes it just comes to you.

It has been a while since I was able to post anything on this blog. But I have been a little overwhelmed with my classes, my job, and family stuff.
My last post was about the creative project. I couldn't really figure out how to research either idea and come up with a good paper and project. So when Ms. Denham said she likes researching serial killers, I thought Ah ha, I can do that. It fits in perfectly with Jekyll and Hyde. I have to admit I didn't really like reading Jekyll and Hyde. Someone in class said that the book was lame and I have to say that is the only way to describe the book. You hear all the hype about this book and then you read it and it isn't really that great. I thought there would be more suspense, more action, more anything that would make me want to keep reading.

I am clueless. I have no idea what to do for our creative project. The creative part I can handle, but what am I going to research and what will my subject be? I did have one idea that came to mind while I was reading Frankenstein. After a lot of thought I abandoned that idea. I will share it with you anyway though. It was about the value society puts on beauty. In Frankenstein Elizabeth is good, she is put upon a pedestal by everyone that knows her because of her beauty. The monster is ugly so of course he is the evil villain. I can't figure out how I would research something like that. . .

Just write it out, okay so I know this is weird but stay with me on this. Have you ever been told when you can't figure something out to just write it out? When I have a problem I put pen to paper and my thoughts just start flowing incorrect grammar and misspelled words but it always helps. I was writing the post above and I was getting ready to start typing about a big research project I have to do for another class this semester. I'm doing a project about Sally Mann. She is a fascinating photographer. I just watched a documentary about her(thank you MelCat) when "light bulb" Sally Mann photographed a series of decomposing bodies and called it "What Remains" she was set to show the collection at an exhibit in New York, but it was abruptly canceled. Maybe that can be my starting point if I do go ahead with the value of beauty idea.
