Abstract mind

In the past 24 hours I think I have listened to Sonic Youth's new album around 20 times. It's such a great album, nearly as good as 'Goo' which would have to be one of my favorite albums of all time. While I have been subconsciously memorizing every lyric from 'The Eternal' I have been also internally debating the best way to approach an essay I have to write.
I have to analyze the impact of humanism on society, based around a contemporary issue. The issue I chose to look at was woman's rights. This would generally be a really easy essay to write, I could easily go on a hobby horse and write a couple thousand words on the way that humanism and the gradual break away from the church has lead to women being given a more equal role in society. The problem is that I go to a christian school, and therefore cannot write an essay that focuses on the misogyny of Christianity. So I am going to have to try and express my views in the most diplomatic way possible. I think that if I had spent the time writing this essay that I have thinking about the compromising nature of it (good marks vs. expressing my opinion) I would have it finished by now.
Today I have to go to the university library to borrow some books for the essay because my local library has a plethora of books on gardening and self help and a drought on anything slightly useful for academic purposes. Speaking of gardening this is a photo of an outfit I was wearing a couple days ago. I really want to turn one of the old tyres into a tyre swing.


Tee from the valley markets, thrifted skirt, gloves and boots, vintage necklace from my nannas house.
