This is pretty fascinating. Haven't read any of his works, but it's pretty cool to see. Someone else I know got Stephen King. I really didn't care who I got, as long as it wasn't Stephenie Meyer :l

I write like
James Joyce

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!


"James Augustine Aloysius Joyce was an Irish writer and poet, widely considered to be one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. Along with Marcel Proust, Virginia Woolf, and others, Joyce was a key figure in the development of the modernist novel. He is best known for his landmark novel Ulysses. Other major works are the short-story collection Dubliners, and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Finnegans Wake."

 

"Ulysses: Since publication, the book attracted controversy and scrutiny, ranging from early obscenity trials to protracted textual "Joyce Wars." Ulysses' stream-of-consciousness technique, careful structuring, and experimental prose—full of puns, parodies, and allusions, as well as its rich characterisations and broad humour, made the book a highly regarded novel in the Modernist pantheon. In 1999, the Modern Library ranked Ulysses first on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century."
 
I feel awkward sharing my 'writing', though.

Yeahhhhh, I haven't been around for a while, (not that I share much so it's not really a big problem, hah) but i feel like i should explain my 'absence,' when someone gave me an invite to join DW and i'd feel terrible if i didn't use it :(

So the main thing: Year 12. Imagine a giant boot. Imagine said giant boot kicking you in the face. A hundred times. VCE ( Victorian Certificate of Education ) is basically this: have 5 hours of homework every night, then have a SAC ( tests, basically ) every week for one of your 5 classes, and then what? At the end of the year an exam for each class that makes up 60% of your mark for that class. yeah, not a typo. It's completely absurd the way it's run, and yet it hasn't changed at all :l

Admittedly, I really have no right to complain ( everyone has jobs, their own schooling, etc. etc. etc. ) but I feel like I should give a quick (not so quick, now, hah) reasoning for why i'm basically disappearing from the sims community ( this includes GoS, i really need to get back into regular updating, I feel horrible :/ )

Also, i've really just started to hate the sims :l it sounds horrible, but there's nothing keeping me playing? I'm hoping the new TS3 expansion pack will make me a bit more interested, but then i'm worried it'll just prolong the inevitable? Plus there's Dragon Age, which is ultra fun :D

Considering doing a TS3 Legacy, but as I am neither witty or that interesting, will probably never come to fruition.

Also, fuck me. I really need to get onto doing my GoS Sekrit Santa~! but I have crap-all idea for what I can actually do.

Also, re-installing sims on freshly-fixed laptop could be smart idea.

Oh, laptop, I'll never fry you again. *heartfarts*
