You have to find happiness in the little things, otherwise you'll barely find any.

Word filters are too.

I read the last line of your story out of respect for you actually bothering to introduce yourself before giving us a Wall of Text. It was not a winning sentence.

Also Ed: I love you.

I swear I have read almost this set up and punch line years before on the internets, but I can not seem to find it and prove my claims. I don't think the actual text is plagiarized, just the joke.

Also if at some point it is 2003 in the story and it is 2011 was this not written over a decade ago or does part of the story take place in the future? Why the hell do I care?

Oh man, I really have to read more than just 10% of text walls. I didn't realise there was a punchline in it at all until the previous post.

Oh well, I'm off to watch the Wire.

It often seems that a dazzling idea may become a masterpiece in a written form, but convoluted sentences are not always good for writing. So simple structure wins the audience and that's about your essay too. I usually try to sound natural in my stories and essays. Creating disparate styles in writing may also help.
