First of all I really liked the whole movie Wuthering Heights. My mom thought Heathcliff was a total creep, but I did not. He had a hard life so it did drive him to do things that were not exactly admirable, but he had his reasons. I think also that he did some of the things to cover up his grief. He kind of had the whole Phantom personality, (that is the Phantom from the Phantom of the Opera) he was so truly in love with Cathie, had a bad childhood because of the way he was treated, and that resulted in him doing some questionable things. All in all I really felt for Heathcliff and liked him deeply.
We too are dealing with hard times and have to cut back. It is easy to say "We will just buy the necessities" but as is most things, it is easier said than done. I would love to buy books, but we have never had the money, and we have always had a bunch of libraries around. My real problem is with journals. You know how most girls have shoe fetishes, well I am that way with journals and notebooks. I love to write in them and I love the way they look. I have always been a devout journal keeper, and I will eventually use them, but right now I am only 3/4ths threw the one I am using now and I have 4 empty ones waiting to be written in.... Well I hope you read this, and my other post I am going to leave.
