Not So Pretty Words

I didn’t want my picture taken because I was going to cry.
I didn’t know why I was going to cry,
but I knew that if anybody spoke to me or looked at me too closely
the tears would fly out of my eyes and the sobs would fly out of my throat
and I’d cry for a week.
I could feel the tears brimming and sloshing in me like
water in a glass that is unsteady and too full.
-The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath


I've received back my exam papers today.
I did quite well and there has been a slight improvement in my
performance compared to the previous,previous tests that
I took. But I failed one out of the six subjects,and this time it isn't Math,
but Physics!
But oh well,nevermind.
I'll take it as a hint telling me that I need to work much harder next time.
I have another exam this coming September and I'm already feeling very afraid.


  1. well done girlie.
    don't feel afraid, though that is much easier said than done, i know.. just do your best, that is all that you can do.

  2. It's great that you did well in most of the exams! Well done! I sure know that feeling described in The Bell Jar, though at the minute I seem to have the opposite problem - I want to cry but can't!

  3. Well done on you exams, I too suffer with physics and maths - such ghastly subjects. The Plath extract was beautiful, she is indeed a writer and a poet of epic proportions.

  4. sylvia plath is my favourite.

    you'll do well lovely, at least you now know where you need to improve :)

  5. Physics seems really hard! A lot of people have trouble with it.
    Good luck, just study hard! :)
    Have a great weekend.

  6. Good job on your papers.
    Nabilah dear, I hope you are well.

    All my love.
