man, sometimes i wish i wasn’t so slow. take about 2 minutes, ago. i was finishing a rather long entry thing, when i try to do something else at the same time. this is a bad idea, and short story even shorter, i am beginning again with a new entry. not only was this an incovinance to me, but also a lost to humanity. to borrow someone else’s description of my writing (seriously, this is a quote.) “The prose was intoxicating, as well as the depth and clarity…It was good, clever, and quite appropriate” yeah, thats right. now to tell every one a bit about myself. to begin, i am freshman here at north park university. NPU is the mecca of swedish-covenant people, and though i am not swedish, i am covenant. that is how i ended up here. i am currrently only taking 3 classes (subsequently, there may be frequent updates due to the huge amounts of free time.) this leads me to an important point that i will address now.
Why do many college kids enjoy things like homestar, and text twist, and ceiling fans?? i believe it is due to the copious amounts of ‘study time’. notice the use of the ‘. by ‘study time’ i an not naive enough to that any real studying or reading actually takes place. the typical ‘study time’ for the typical college student looks like this. well, it begins by telling everyone, either at a meal, or a social gather of some sort that they are going to study. then go and sit down, typically by a computer and open a book. they say a quick pray, and look longingly out the window if it is a nice day, and longingly at the bed if they are tired, longingly at the phone if they are ‘seeing’ someone, longingly (well, semi longingly) at a.r.a. if they are hungry. after all that longing, they are tired, and feel they deserve a break. they check there email, sometimes compulsively, and then surf there way to my xanga site to see if there are any updates. if there is not, they navigate over to homestar, yahoo games, or go in search of a ceiling fan. if they is an update on my site, they will stay here and be amazed, humbled, and awe-struck at the awesome (yes, thats right, insiping the awe of God) writing. They will be so engrossed that they will ignore their roommate, the phone, time itself, and acts-of-God until they are brought to tears. then they look up and realize that lots of time has past and that they have not even begun to do there homework. there is much weeping and gnashing of teeth at this stage.
I am convinced that is the typical study day of most college kids. i am still working on the political, social, and theological ramifications of this interesting, and unique, event. i do not like to associate myself a school of philosphical thought, or a political party, i like to think/vote my mind. (ding). that is one of my many profound and insightful….insights into life. more to follow i am sure. until then, i will get to more important things, like text twist, homestar. until i get bored and decide to ramble some more, take care. now where is there a ceiling fan i can use???
