Representations of Motherhood
What I Have Learned
What I Found Interesting.
I would have to say the topic that I found most interesting would have to be a tie between our discussion over mothers in music and mothers in movies. Those were also the assignments that I enjoyed the most. I really love music and being able to break down a song and describe how it made me feel about motherhood and my own mom was awesome. I feel like song lyrics are an incredible way to share emotion without having to physically say it to someone, so I thought that it was really neat that I could make a video of pictures of my mother and I that would tell her how special she is and how much I love her.
I also thought that the mothers in the movies assignment was super fun. I got to watch Home Alone again and get a more adult understanding of Kevin's mother. When I was younger I thought it was so unlikely that someone would lose/leave their kid, but the older I have gotten I can understand some of the things that she did throughout the movie. All-in-all these two assignments were the most fun and interesting in my opinion.
