So the last few weeks have really opened my eyes to who I want to be. However somewhere along the line of trying to make myself happy I lost who I truly am. Sometimes it takes the smallest of things to make you click into place again. I think everyone who’s close to me at the moment can realise just how happy I really am. I have a lot going for me, I realise this now, its time to stay positive and succeed to the highest of my ability. There’s a place I aim to be, and I will, no matter what, get there.
Personal I know, but it has to be said.
Being single isn’t a time to look for love, use that time to work on yourself and grow as an individual.
White is the colour of fresh milk and snow. It is the color the human eye sees when it looks at light which contains all the wavelengths of the visible spectrum, at full brightness and without absorption. It does not have any hue.
The Great Gatsby : F. Scott Fitzgerald
The great Gatsby – one of my favourite books and films, so here’s a little symbol of white within the meaning of the context.
: innocence, purity and femininity
The colors white and yellow have special significance in the novel. White is a symbol of purity and goodness, while yellow is the color of corruption and greed. Gatsby’s world, East Egg and West Egg, is one that superficially appears pure, but is less savory at its core. Similarly Daisy projects an image of innocence, but that is later revealed to be merely a facade. She is unconcerned about the consequences of her choices, and acts solely on the basis of what she wants at that moment in time. Even her name relates to this theme, because a daisy is white on the outside, but yellow on the inside. Gatsby used two cars: one, which is a cream color, towards the beginning of the novel, and the yellow “death car” which Daisy and Gatsby strike and kill Myrtle in.
Here’s one thing you will probably notice about me as I start writing more and more posts, I LOVE quotes. Lyric quotes, famous quotes any kind of quotes to be honest 🙂 I use them as motivation to do something & to make me happier when I apply them to my real life. It gives a bit of hope sometimes when you’re having a crappy day & you see a good quote. Or maybe I just read too much into them …
