    HOW WILL I DO MY UNI ASSIGNMENTS!?

    At least Myspace is still up!
    I am a brave man, I am a coward. I am the tiger, I am the flower.
    I am honest, and I'm a liar. I am vital, I am tired.
    I am a free man, I am caught. From where I am, I see the top.
    I am most importantly never concerned with what I am not.
    Forever, more than just surviving.
    THIS IS MY LIFE AND THIS LIFE IS MY DIAMOND

    It probably won't affect me too much, but I'd imagine the Wikipediaphiles amongst us will be devastated.
