I'd be lying if I said this wasn't wrong.

You're a Narrative writer!

What kind of writer are you?

Thanks Paul

"The most obvious difference between real essays and the things one has to write in school is that real essays are not exclusively about English literature. Certainly schools should teach students how to write. But due to a series of historical accidents the teaching of writing has gotten mixed together with the study of literature. And so all over the country students are writing not about how a baseball team with a small budget might compete with the Yankees, or the role of color in fashion, or what constitutes a good dessert, but about symbolism in Dickens.

With the result that writing is made to seem boring and pointless. Who cares about symbolism in Dickens? Dickens himself would be more interested in an essay about color or baseball."
-Paul Graham

Obviously, he says it better than I do. It's about time.

College sucks.

But, it doesn't suck half as much as high school. I actually enjoy it, except for the whole waking up part. That part pretty much sucks. It's pretty exhausting, but it's okay, I get out at 12:20, MW, 11:20 TTH and 9:20 on Fridays. Such fun.

Anyway, I decided to join Phi Beta Lambda this semester, it should be fun. I'm looking forward to some of the projects planned. Hopefully making it to meetings isn't too difficult, although I have a feeling it will be, since I'll have to start working soon. Oh well, I'll make it work.

Hmm, I can't really think of anythign else to write. So I'll just stop here. Bye bye.
