reference: One of my passions are birds. If I had to choose other form of existence I would rather be a bird. I love to watch the birds. The winter came and I feel worried about them how difficult is to get food. I feed birds every day.

reference: I normally cook the beans mixed with any other vegetable as soup base for her pasta dinner ready to serve with grilled/oven fresh steak, chicken fillet or fish fillet. when becky is back from school the moment we enter the house she will say, “I’m Hungry!” so I make sure I have ready food to serve because I know she is starving hungry beautiful creature. domestic work is invisible and ignored – indeed the better they are at their work the more invisible it is. Domestic work is support work, unnoticed if it is done well, but noticed if it isn’t done. Justice for domestic workers (j4dw) in making domestic work visible in british society.

synecdoche vs metonymy

profession: organizer of things
weekday: thursday
reference: when i was studying grammar, the example they would always use to explain what ‘synecdoche’ meant was the “all hands on deck” saying… where the hands stand in for the ‘man’ or the ‘sailor’. where the person, as a worker, is minimized down to their hands. to the utility of their body. to the utility of a part of their body.  class is mapped onto our hands.
