This week I have been ever so slightly reading “Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley. The book is 280 pages long and I have only gotten through about 15 pages so far. Of course I know the basic story of Frankenstein, but I have never read the full version of the story to get all the extra details that I’ve missed. I remember in elementary school around 3rd or 4th grade I read a ‘dumbed’ down children’s version of the book, but remember little to no detail about it. So far, through the short portion of the novel that I have read, the book has definitely intrigued me. The main character Viktor Frankenstein is portrayed less as a crazy scientist like I was first lead to believe, and more of a curious intelligent, yet troubled young man. The book has done a great job so far of giving the reader details into Viktor’s mind and thought process.
“One man’s life or death were but a small price to pay for the acquirement of the knowledge which I sought, for the dominion I should acquire and transmit over the elemental foes of our race.”
Currently It is 6:30 AM. I am very tired and not looking forward to the rest of the school work I have left to do before I leave for class. As I write this report I am really struggling to keep my eyes open and pay attention to what I am writing. I guess it’s my fault though. I procrastinated to this point, so I must suffer the consequences. Also, I am very worried about my math project do this week. I’m really not sure on some of the material so I know that it’s going to be a headache and a half. I always tell myself that I should do some work a head of time so I don’t have to stress, wake up at the crack of dawn, and rush to complete my work, but I feel that I work the best under pressure. As much as I’d like to believe I can sit down and do the work at any moment in time, I know that if i try, I’ll day dream and slack off and not get anything accomplished.
