    I Love Jane Austen

    I've read all of Jane Austen's books. I also try to read other authors like the Bronte sisters & Doyle. It's hard to undertand them at first you have to get used to the language & vocabulary. but i love them, i love going back in time.

    If I have to write 'colonialization' one more time on this module, I may spontaneously combust... I've totally had enough of the British empire and it's problematic behaviour.

    There actually isn't even such a thing as a British accent so I'm not sure what you all think you like? There's English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh, all totally different
