One Of My Many Apologies

Why is it that when you know you have to do something you try to avoid it as much as possible? I have an apology to make because I know I've avoided blogging lengthy posts, and even blogging my tracks of the month, but it's because I'm feeling under pressure.

I need to improve my writing for a test I have coming up. It's the sort of test where they'll assess and scrutinise everything, and I mean e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. Grammar, sentence structure, paragraph structure, order of paragraphs, whether paragraphs are hooked, the list just goes on and on! It's a test of your thinking, general writing ability and how logical your thought process is - in 30 minutes.

Unfortunately for me, my trail of thought is exactly that. A long trail that meanders and weaves round and round. I'm not very direct and I like to beat around the bush as they say. Hence why I need to improve how I write and what I write. Surely blogging more is the simple, most interesting solution... Apparently not. I've been scared to even look at the blog and read Sean's posts. I sit and I think.. hmm why can't I write like that in 20 minutes like he does?!

Don't get me wrong, he's been very encouraging, but I just can't seem to get my head around any sort of topic to blog about enthusiastically, and I suppose I shouldn't get used to blogging about things I like because I might be given a topic I don't like, or even know nothing about, how will I fare then?! Oh.. the nerves just keep getting worse and worse, my tummy is doing somersaults!

Mind you, I've quite enjoyed writing this ramble so maybe I will write about something I can really sink my teeth into. Thank you kindly, you've been most helpful. I hope you'll read something from me soon - mainly because I hope to have written something for you to read soon!

Windows Live Messenger Officially Converted to Skype

Messenger has moved to Skype

Messenger was retired in April 2013 and is no longer available or supported on most Mac and Windows operating systems. *

You can continue to make audio and video calls with your contacts on Skype and Facebook and send IMs for free—your contacts will come with you when you update to Skype and sign in with your Microsoft account.

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

Marvel and Sony Reach Agreement For Spiderman

A quick glimpse into our archive would reveal we here at Don't Laugh, People are fans of comic books and their respective movies. I do not often divulge into a battle of DC vs. Marvel vs. the others, because I typically enjoy plenty from all (but yes, I do think Marvel is the best for art and for stories). However, "the last 24 hours have been really exciting."* Kudos to you if you didn't need to look up that quote... damn you if you did. *Dr. Okun - Independence Day

It was announced by many sources late last night/early this morning, that Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures had finally reached an agreement for their partnership in order to introduce Spiderman into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (where The Avengers live). Marvel will reportedly allow Sony to retain Spiderman's rights to let Amy Pascal produce films in the title, but she will be aided by Marvel's top man, Kevin Feige, in her endeavors. Feige will be involved in Spiderman's 2017 standalone fil…
