The Virtues

It is hard to be perfect, actually impossible if you think about humans. When I attempted to do my 15 virtues it was a very bad result. I failed at most of the virtues, and was terrible with order and industry in particular; my best virtue was temperance. Over all I did not change much. Temperance is normal anyways no need to flip out over small stuff. Never was very organised much, I think its very apparent how bad I am at industry looking at how late this is. Ways I could fix this is not allow my self to relax until all the work is done; contrary to my typical “I will do it later” mentality. for order i could just take an extra step and put the items, and thought in a logical place instead of the warp version of placement from me that changes each day. Justice I failed each day. With justice it is tough how are you suppose to be fair if you do not know what is fair in others minds. It is a subjective thought  and very hard to you guessed it, judge! Also it is hard to tell sometimes because you may think your being fair when you are letting you mind get clouded with emotions. Also a good point added by Franklin in there autobiography. Touching on how if you where to achieve these virtues no one would like you because you changed so much. Witch is important to recognize who wants to hang around someone who thinks there perfect? No one, well if you where perfect people would like you less then a narcissist. Who wants be friends with a know it all?

Humans are by nature flawed, but we survive sometimes through going against Virtues. Adding to this struggle is the bad potato concept, A good thing gets ruined with one rotten potato. Referring to one rotten potato rotting the rest of the potatoes in a container, for those who never experienced this. This is like the world  but the rotten potato is someone who makes it through non-virtuous ways, forcing others in order to compete have to use  those means to survive as well. Also happens in elementary schools say there is a bad bratty kid. They punish the whole class witch discourages being the better man, but encourages for people to be hateful of those people. This is caused by unjust leadership unable to see that it rewards the bad people, but it also prevents good people from growing. Over all virtues are a touch game to play and are rather hard to achieve, as you see with the bad potato.

Go Away Poetry!

Yes, poetry that thing, the evil bender of simple words! When I seen the new poem, I was like get out go away. Then I read it and died a little on the inside. I thought the theme was no matter how hard you try to be perfect you never will. Its probably wrong, but who cares about my take on it to be honest. The work is very confusing as is most poetry to me no matter  how much I look at it. I have came to the point where I gave up on it. The question whee harder to answer compared to Eldorado. The amount Know about poetry has improved, so i spend a stupid amount of time on it. Also it makes less sense. Instead of going with a  simple assessment of the whole poem. I examine each line a show, painful process of nitpicking.

 

 

This is the point where I would throw the poetry out of the window in to a fire, but if that happened I would  be without  a surface pro and a bad grade. I don’t want a bad grade so time to half try on the poetry assignments the normal. Why not talk about the title dodos, they are cool right? well in class today apparently they are a flightless bird. since they are a bird they should be able to fly but they cant. This in non flowery terms is, something you should be able to do but can’t. This relates to the poem though the theme No one if perfect nor are you. How? well it allow for us the bend the idea that way you should be able to be perfect but can’t. Why not give it a try see if you can do it; there is a high chance that you will fail at some point. I am not being a pessimistic but practical here. Why reach for a hopeless goal? Enough questioning, As much as i love to keep rambling about my despise of poetry. I feel that my time would be better spend keeping up on other task.
