Linky Party: Cruella

Cruella:Something you really want but you aren't allowed to have.

What I really want but aren't allowed to have.  As an adult, really there isn't much holding me back from what I want except laws.  I can't think of anything that I want that laws refuse me from having.  
Maybe the urge to drag race but they have race strips for that. 
I guess a cat.  Yeah, I would really like to have a cat.

What am I not allowed to have a cat?  Because the condo association has it in their rules that we can't.  No pet fee and have a cat.  Just flat out NO PETS.  

And that's just one of the many reasons that I want to move out from here.  That and they're probably going to threaten to throw my daughter's sprinkler and sensory table away again because I've moved them out front for summer.  They sure better not throw those away.  

NEXT WEEK:  Seven Dwarfs:7 things you like in the people around you.

Something you really want but you aren't allowed to have.

Ep. 10 - Nanami's Precious One

Disclaimer:
This episode analysis(musing) contains spoilers.  This episode analysis skims over topics and doesn't go into huge detail because each detail is really worth it's own post.  This analysis does not cover every detail to analyze but ones that I have chosen to discuss.  Also, these are my opinions and nothing official.  You do not have to accept or agree with any of this.


"Nanami no taisetsu na mono"
七実の大切なもの
June 4, 1994
Duel Song:  Last Evolution (Shinka Kakumei Zenya)
Duel Theme: adoration - Adoration

Saionji walking off school campus. Not only is he expelled but it's posted up for all students to see.  Much like what he did with Wakaba's love letter.

It's clear from Miki and Juri's conversation that they believe that his actions were done without permission from End of the World. This says to me that even they didn't bother communicating with Saionji over what happened.  The actions demonstrated were within his character making it easy for others to assume.  This also marks how serious the duels are.  Don't follow things appropriately and you can get kicked out of school without even chance to defend your actions.

Saionji and Touga's interaction seems more genuine and sincere.  Saionji perhaps speaking in his calmest tone yet since he has been introduced.  This seems as though these two have reconciled their differences in their relationship.  And then Touga burns the exchange diary.  The fact that he does this to someone who he calls his best friend can be seen as a multitude of things but number one is it shows that he is willing to betray and manipulate ANYONE for the duels.  

Student Council meeting to discuss a letter from End of the World about the next dueling date drawing near.  Juri calls out that by process of elimination, Touga is up to duel. But Touga's still injured so Miki and Juri have a back and forth over which one of them would be best to step in for him instead (I would vote Juri myself).  Touga stops the clock with his comment that there is another duelist.  Juri and Miki are shocked by this revelation but Touga reveals no further information.

Slap!  Utena's down in the rose bushes this time as Nanami has taken her upset into her own hands about how he brother was injured in defense of Utena.  Utena can't respond to Nanami's questions because it is a barrage of everything she has been asking herself.  Nanami does not calm down, even after her brother arrives.  The words and way that he addresses Utena add fuel to her fire rather than calm her down.

Utena is sulking in the dark when Anthy turns the lights on to Utena.  Anthy converses with the kitten in the box the entire time but she honestly is doing more than that.  She is so amazingly intellectual that she not only is speaking to the cat but she is speaking to Utena as well.  She carries both conversations in this single moment without Utena realizing until the saucer of milk comes out.  Another time Utena stays focused on herself instead of others in her immediate presence.

Flashback to Touga's birthday party years ago.  Nanami is all dirty and scratched up from catching a cat to give to her big brother for his birthday.  I think this might be one of her first memories or so.  This is a strong memory because she has friends and family judging harshly the action she chose to acquire this cat.  I also believe that this might be around when they were newly adopted.  If she had been used to her rich life as she is now, she would have had someone but him a cat for her.  Not only did she bring a "flee-ridden" animal in to this setting but her actions were also embarrassing.  I think that it part of what Touga loved too about that gift.  It was something real and reminiscent of life before the adoption.  Before the abuse.

Nanami wakes up and tries her best to stop Touga from practicing his kendo and possibly furthering his injury.  He embraces her tenderly in her upset and she innocently asks for a kiss.  She's thinking of the sweet ones that he would plant on her eyes when she was upset as a child.  He doesn't see her as a child anymore and pulls away saying "I couldn't."  But where he is with his loss of innocence, he can't imagine his grown sister asking something innocent.  "We aren't kids anymore."  Flash of the box.

Utena attempts to see Touga at school but he isn't there.  She's suggested to go to the party at his house that evening.  She arrives with roses to offer as get well to him while discovering that this is his birthday party.  Anthy knew and brought a gift herself.  Juri and Miki are hawking over Touga trying to uncover the name of the new duelist and Touga keeps dodging them.  You can tell that Touga is really enjoying feeling in control here with this information he possesses.  

Anthy and Utena go to present their gifts and right away Utena begins to defend her gift of roses.  She couldn't simply say, thanks for taking that blow for me and I hope that you heal soon.  Her insecure actions amuse Touga that she really couldn't bother still to possibly just hand over the gift but had to say something defensive over her actions.  "I'm just satisfied that you came" has two purposes here.  First (and you can see this in his expression when he delivers that line) is that she's here so the new duelist can unveil.  Second, that manipulation that he could be her prince and that he has feelings for her.  

Nanami does not stand for Utena's choice in gift to her brother's reaction.  She snaps, she slaps.  Anthy steps in, verbalizing that the blame should actually be Saionji's.  Big brother's best friend?  No way!  Smack!  Meow!  Shock!  That stops Nanami's hand but her words ring out making everyone question if Utena and Touga are dating.  

Nanami sulks in the back corner in a gazebo, directly by the yellow rose bushes.  Not coincidence but if you watch Utena and don't analyze the rose colors to what's going on in the scene then you aren't doing it right.  And I'm not doing that here because you have google and can easily do that one yourself.  

Touga comes out to address Utena on the porch.  He discusses how he thinks that Nanami might have a big brother complex.  I think he believes that she loves him romantically/physically instead of highly adores.  She loves and admires her big brother truly but not like some siblings "love" each other in this show.

Touga shares with Utena the story of the birthday when Nanami gave him the cat and how one day it suddenly disappeared.  Anthy presents her gift, the cat!  Nanami is already hurt and the sound of her brother's laughter with the gift of a cat (something that only she had done before) was the final push that she needed. 

We see her reflecting on what happened after Touga's birthday with her cat.  He began neglecting his attentions with her and focusing on the cat.  She could do wrong but the cat couldn't.  She reasoned that it was the cat's fault.  The cat should not have taken so much from her so quickly.  

Nanami throws a rose down on Utena, challenging her to a duel without care that by not following school rules that she could be expelled.  Her brother bestows a Rose signet upon her revealing the new duelist.  

The shadow girls this time have a cat that continues to grow out of control as they argue what his name should be.  A situation snowballing as people are focusing on the wrong issue.  We're focusing on the student council right now that we don't notice the growing figure in the shadows that is really pulling the strings.  We could also see Nanami's anger as focus rather than Touga manipulating the situation to make it happen.

This is another one of my favorite duels.  Nanami has such a sleek duelist uniform, speed, and then she doesn't quit!  Her rose is knocked from her breast and she just pulls out a second blade and keeps going anyway!  She finally calms to her brother's brotherly embrace, crashing in to the emotions of what she did to that cat. How far she was willing to go to attack Utena even after the duel was over reflected of how far she was willing to go to remove the kitten from her brother's life.  She obviously feels regrets for taking her actions so far.

The Power of Dios will surely be mine.

It's Not Summer Yet

The other day I found a great blog post about the importance of teaching to the last day of school.

I can't tell you enough how perfect the points are in the post.  From how important a positive attitude is to not letting other people who perform sub-par being you down to their level.  

I think this post is important for not only educators but any career field.  If you don't have the desire to give your all and do your best every day that you attend work, then you might need to rethink your work ethic.  In education this attitude is necessary for not only yourself but for every child blessed to enter your classroom. 

When you check out and focus on summer, your work suffers and in education that work is your students.  When we are contracted for 180 days of work with our students, that's what we need to put forth.  People who focus on "one month left so let's not even worry about it" have clocked out of their 180 days early.  But what stops them at one month?  Then it becomes as soon as they return from Spring Break.  Then after the 100th day of school.  Soon they enter the school year with that attitude.

End of the Year blues will happen.  It's a busy time and it is easy to become overwhelmed in it all.  The desire might be to stop caring but know that your students are worth more than that.  Never stop caring and never stop giving them your all.  They're worth it.

Don't do your students a disservice.  Teach them until the end.  Remain consistent and positive.  Carry that with you and you will easily reach End of the Year success!

Night Shift

This week has been a little different for this household.  My husband was working night shift this week.
There was some slight apprehension prior to the week beginning.  In all of our time together, he's always had a day-shift  schedule with work.  
It's been pretty swell though.  Yeah, we miss him at supper and bedtimes.  On the plus, he's home for morning snuggles.  He can do daytime errands before his night-shift starts.  I can cook seafood for dinner because he isn't there not to eat it.  Plus he earns a bit more for being on nights.  
He might still prefer day-shift but I'm really okay with whatever for him.  He's a loyal employee with an incredible work ethic.  I'm incredibly proud of my hardworking husband.

I still admire her.

Easter

Easter has come and is now behind us.  As you can tell, I've been keeping pretty busy this month but I really don't even have many Easter crafts, games, or activities to share now that I'm caught back up.
That's mostly because in all honesty, I'm not a big Easter person.  If there was voting to drop a holiday from the calendar, I would vote Easter.  
I know, I know.  It's a holiday about rebirth, fertility, faith, and more.  Maybe it is the pastels everywhere but it is such a quiet holiday.  It's nice to get together with family and all of that.  
I think if my daughter is alright with it, we won't even do baskets and eggs once she learns that the Easter bunny isn't real.  I would celebrate the holiday but the eggs and basket are just, I think, forced accessories that don't even reflect well the soul of what Easter should be.  I just can't seem to make myself excited for them but I try to be so that my daughter can be.

But don't you dare tell my baby that the Easter bunny isn't real.  As much as I'm not all about some Easter doesn't mean her bubble of magic needs to be popped just yet.

Ep. 9 - The Castle Said to Hold Eternity

Disclaimer:
This episode analysis(musing) contains spoilers.  This episode analysis skims over topics and doesn't go into huge detail because each detail is really worth it's own post.  This analysis does not cover every detail to analyze but ones that I have chosen to discuss.  Also, these are my opinions and nothing official.  You do not have to accept or agree with any of this.


"Eien ga aru toiu shiro" 
(永遠があるという城) 
May 28, 1997
No duel.

Girls running of to see a duel.  Wait, a duel?!  A kendo sparing match between Touga and Saionji.  Sub to dub comparison here: in the sub the audio gives way to believe that there are swarms of girls cheering on both boys while in the dub it just sounds like two girls had happened to catch this event.
I can't pin who's voice tells the Japanese fangirls to hush and the English doesn't have dialogue there but they seem to be represented by the broom.  An uninterested party?  The club sponsor?   

This is the first we see any of Touga's swordplay.  The girls call him a prince which gets Utena back to thinking about her's.  In some way, I think she does connect Touga to when she met her prince but with her forgotten details she can't exactly place why he should have anything to do with that event.  It must therefor mean that he could be her prince.  

We're then taken to Touga revealing Saionji as his "old friend" which now we can clearly see Saionji's complex concerning Touga begin to show.  We were so busy watching him slap Anthy around early on that now we get to see his insecurities show.  

Anthy watering the roses, Chu-Chu battling a frog that ate his roly poly, a disgruntled Saionji taking his aggression out on anything close by.  Just an average day at Ohtori Academy.  

Flashback to young Saionji and Touga dueling with someone bandaging the other's hand.  Utena flips on Saionji for his comment of not wanting to lose to Touga as Saionji mistreating Anthy because she's stuck in the middle.  Seriously Utena.  She can only look at things by what appears right or wrong to her regardless of the big picture.  I guess it is easy to be a prince if you don't have to consider the wants and needs of all.  Just simply make the world conform to your idea of right.  

But anyway, Utena does that all series long so we won't stop noting it here.  Saionji then introduces the idea of trying to possess eternity.  I still don't think that I fully understand the idea of Saionji's something eternal but mostly because I cannot relate.  I can relate to miracles.  I can relate to shining things.  I can relate to smashing the world's shell.  But eternity is lost on me.  I have my blog post on what I think it might be.

It's interesting to note that the drive and backstory for the other student council members so far have been introduced in their duel episode.  Saionji does not get that same treatment as he was our introduction to the duels in general.   

Flashback again as we pass by a church where a funeral is going on.  We hear that a girl is missing.  You can see the difference between these two boys here. Saionji is still child-like, believing the adults every word and being frightened of Touga opening the coffin.  Touga searches to find the girl himself (why didn't he just tell the adults this?  For plot!) and courageously opens the coffin himself.  Touga and Utena are both damaged individuals here; Utena with death and Touga with abuse.  While Saionji is still pure and innocent while wishing to understand things as he thinks they do. Oh Saionji, you don't want it.

Also to note, we see Utena here with her face blacked out.  Saionji doesn't even recognize the girl in the event that made such an impact on his life when she stands right there by him today.  Apply that to Utena's story of how all of this transpired.  She doesn't remember the boys.  She imagined herself a princess.  Details forgotten and distorted become shrouded in shadow much like the faces and bodies in these flashbacks.  Saionji doesn't recognize because he doesn't remember that detail.  Touga is clear but Utena and the men are not.  The memory has become distorted with portions missing.  It happens to us all.

Oh the bandage coming off!! I read someone's interpretation of that somewhere once that was really good and on point but I don't remember it right now.  Maybe I'll come back to this later.  It was a good point though..

Also, I love how Saionji notes that there was something different in the girl's eyes but he can't even remember what those looked like anymore either.  He just remembers feeling.  Feeling like the girl knew and Touga knew but he did not.  

Interesting how Utena transformed that memory into a fairy tale that she tells herself in comfort.  How defensive Utena gets that someone must have told Touga about her prince as though she hasn't told that story to everyone she met.  Why get defensive now?  Because she's unsure of herself and her memories.  Could Touga really be her prince?  She pushes herself away from his smooth moves.  If Touga had taken slow like Akio, he might really could have had Utena fooled.  She's still wrapping her head around the idea of possibly having found her prince.  Touga might be smooth but he played his cards too soon, too quick.  

The Shadow Girls do a skit reflecting on Touga and Saionji's relationship.  One believes in everything, the other does not while they both agree that there is no such thing a true friends.  What an odd relationship this one is..

Utena returns home.  Oh no!  Anthy is missing!  Shock gasp.  Phone call from Touga that Anthy has been kidnapped and to check the duelist arena.  How hard Touga plays at being Akio in this episode.  It really makes you think that the student council could be pulling the strings.  But what about End of the World who is sending these letters?

Utena discovers Saionji face-down near the entrance after he strong-armed Anthy to the arena dispight her voicing that he shouldn't.  The powers of the Rose Bride too much to enter the arena for one not engaged to her.  Or something.  It never really does explain what happened there.

Racing to the top of the stairs we are met with a recreation of the scene from Saionji's memory (Utena doesn't remember these anymore).  A nice test of Utena of saving the princess and foreshadowing of the final episode as Utena saves Anthy from her rose-sealed coffin.  

Just as quickly, everything goes back to as it was before.  The castle back in the sky but Anthy is unconscious (maybe?).  Saionji kind of has a mental breakdown as Anthy regains consciousness and attempts to attack Utena.  Instead of harming Utena, he instead injures Touga who ran in the way just in time.  

Remember when Tsuwabaki wanted to be like Touga by putting Nanami in danger just to save her in the nick of time?  I'm just saying, look at what we have Touga doing right here.  Touga sent the letter to Saionji in End of the World's name, called Utena to the dueling arena, set it all up just to toss himself in harm's way to save the princess at the expense of his "only friend."

A person who truly believes in friendship is a fool.

11 Secret Thoughts

I started doing a few from this buzzfeed article but thought things turned out too interesting just not to share these.  So you think of a favorite object or something then one word to describe it to reveal what you really think about certain things.  Here are mine:

lemur ~ bitchy : my soul mate
snake ~ elegant : my secret crush (it's you)
great cure for a hangover : my feelings about sex
She by Jennifer Nettles ~ brilliant : my mom
Adolescence of Utena ~ symbolic : my dad
shrimp ~ delicious : my best quality
depressing : my own worst quality
An American Tragedy ~ dramatic : my best friend
joyous : how I feel about vaginas
cozy :  how I feel about penises
rest : how I feel about death


Okay, maybe I didn't really think as hard as I should have and just went with the first word that came to mind with many of these.  But it is fun.  I dare you to share yours!

I've been slacking on this blog.  With CRCT and many other things going on in my life, I honestly just haven't had the time to write most of what's been going on.  
Even my few regular posts have been rushed out the door.  
Luckily I have amazing readers like you all to catch my errors and edit for me during these rush weeks.  Go you guys!

There have been a lot of things.  Really working to where I want to be is something I've tried the hardest for.  I worked hard to buy my first car.  I worked hard to finish my degree.  I'm working hard to be hired as a certified teacher.  
Working hard is always worth it if you're reaching for a goal.  
Doing something that makes you happy will never feel like you're working too hard.  And I'm almost there.
