I took one Draught of Dramas —
Yes, this is an Emily Dickinson reference, as is the name of my blog, A Revolving Wheel. The phrase “a revolving wheel” simply clicked with me as it rather aptly describes my K-drama viewing habits. I tend to rapidly pick up and drop dramas, and the whole rinse-and-repeat cycle is like a… revolving wheel. For some reason, the phrase also triggers a mental image of a sad clown on a unicycle gliding over and under endless hills beneath skies of slate across which a few cawing ravens soar. I have no idea why.1 The metaphor of a cycling clown, however, can be applied to any questionably sane persons exploring and traversing through the realms within the box of moving pictures, hence the tagline, “they are all gone into the world of dramas.”2
In the process of switching majors. Have until this fall to decide but still undecided. My life is a fail -_-”
I apologize if this blog is really random. It’s my first time blogging, and I can’t control the urge to share any cool tip/tidbit I come across, lulz. I just hope this blog may be of some use to those who stumble upon it.
1 Actually, I think I do know why. It’s a concatenation of scenes from various novels I’ve read: Ozma of Oz, The Hobbit and Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell.
2 Yup, another reference to poetry. For the record though, I’m by no means fond of poetry. My reading diet mostly consists of lowbrow lit, i.e., mystery/suspense/thriller material. In fact, I have traumatic memories of frantically trying to decipher the cryptic
gibberish poems we had to analyze under merciless timed settings in my AP Eng Lit class. For example, did you know that Emily Dickinson’s “A Route of Evanescence” is (on a literal level) about hummingbirds? Oy vey…
A Route of Evanescence,
With a revolving Wheel –
A Resonance of Emerald
A Rush of Cochineal –
And every Blossom on the Bush
Adjusts it’s tumbled Head –
The Mail from Tunis – probably,
An easy Morning’s Ride –
