Cha cha cha

So it's been like, what? a few hours?
I'm a typing up my intoduction for my english literature essay, trying to make it sound all pretentious and smart.
Here's what I've done so far, what'da think?

How did each of the main women in Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby” and Bronte’s “Wuthering Heights” affect each of the protagonists: did they ultimately cause their demise or were the women just pawns in their schemes for revenge?

It has been said by a number of various literary critics that the main women featured in each of my novels of focus: core text “The Great Gatsby” and partner text “Wuthering Heights” were the villains. A quote to support Daisy from Gatsby being portrayed as this is: “Fitzgerald shows contempt towards the women characters in The Great Gatsby. He uses the women as temptresses, and they are always doing something wrong. For example, Daisy constantly spends Tom’s money, while she only stays married to him because he makes her feel safe. While Tom does cheat on Daisy with Myrtle, Fitzgerald still makes it seem like Daisy’s fault.[1] But just how accurate is this interpretation? Were the women merely scapegoats to explain the protagonists’ downfall? In this essay, I will be looking at both sides of the argument, evaluating at the end the answer to the question I believe to be correct.

I think I need to work on this quite a lot especially the "I will be looking at both sides of the argument, evaluating at the end the answer to the question I believe to be correct." bit. I just typed that like 18 seconds ago, so I will inevitably change it in the next 10 minutes or so.

Kay, This photo formatting is the shite-ist I've ever had the misfortune of coming across, so I'll edit up a collage later instead of posting pitures together in a group.

Hey. Hi. So er ... I thought i'd follow you. I clicked Taking Back Sunday and clicked on your face and this led me here. Your colour scheme offends my eyes but words of strangers intrigue me. It's a fine balance.
