That's me. And my intro paragraph for my English paper sucks because I'm not entirely sure what it is I'm writing about.
Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman and August Wilson’s Fences are two plays that are strikingly similar in tone, theme, and characters, while still maintaining enough dissimilarities to establish them as very different plays. Death of a Salesman takes audiences through several days in the late 1940s, early 1950s era in the life of Willy Loman, a down-on-his-luck salesman with a devoted wife and two grown sons. The play also dips into Willy’s mind, allowing one to glimpse his various memories and the inner workings of his psyche. Fences, on the other hand, chronicles several years in the life of Troy Maxson and his family. Troy is a black man living in the later half of the 1950s, and he faces all of the prejudices of the time period. The comparison of the principal characters’ ambitions in these two plays reveals the irony inherent in the events that result from their own concepts and expectations of life and success. Willy and Troy’s ideals and aspirations shape the course of their own lives, the course of their sons’ lives, and the eventual conclusion of their lives in the form of their deaths.
Now, the interesting thing about this class is that I seem to be able to write down just about any old thing and get a decent grade on it. Even if I think it sucks royally. Maargh. This is not a good system because I live in constant fear of writing something that doesn't do well.
*wishes idly for a class that would allow her to write slash and be graded on it* Man... that'd be an easy A.
Plus, I have a drawing to do that I don't know exactly how to do. And haven't started. Oh, the pain. And I spilled Diet Coke on the paper that I'm supposed to be doing it on. So... yes, this will be an interesting assignment, don't you think?

Which Disney Princess are you?
You are a quick-witted tough dame with a tongue of steel. This jaded, cynical outlook is your suit of armor worn to protect you from further hurt and mistreatment. You may have been burned in the past by a love. Though your history weighs on your mind, you still have a little bit of faith in love. Don't deny it, girlfriend! Let go of the past and move on, embracing life's possibilities. But being more optimistic doesn't mean you have to lose your wit or independence!
