Write a list poem about your working life.
Think about your experiences, thoughts, and feelings while at work just as MeiMei did in the film, Agua Viva. Then start to jot down notes about your work life—thinking about a wide range of aspects from the mundane to the noteworthy. Some suggestions:
- What is your happiest time of day at work?
- What do your surroundings at work look like?
- What do you daydream about the most?
Once you’ve comprised a good descriptive list of your work life, then consider adding a line or two at the bottom that either provides a summary conclusion or a question.
