It's late right now but i wanted to post this before i forget too much of it. So part of this whole blogging thing is that for class, we had to buy a soda for someone that we didn't know and then write about it. Let me tell you about my experience; by mine own genius and from the situation that I put myself into, i was able to make the situation just a slight more awkward than it really had to be, which i am fine with. I'm with my friend after we had played a game of racquetball and we are filling up our drinks in 711. A homeless guy i was going to buy a drink for had disappeared so i had to act fast. A person was walking up to the cashier with some goodies so I walked up (without my drink because i hadn't filled it yet) and said "hey man, um...this is going to sound really weird but i really want to buy that for you." and he was like, "ehhh...." with a very skewed face so i chipped in with " will you allow me to do that?" as i started to swipe my debit card. Both the cashier, myself, and this person whom we will call Brian Carl Justice (i have no idea the odds that this is his name) stood there as i put in my code and i said 'have a good night' and walked away to fill my drink. I don't think he felt any gratitude at all, just weirdness....which was completely fine with me because i hadn't done it for charity anyways (which i wish i had, and not just for an assignment). If we're talking about themes, one in particular from the Alanis Morresette song comes to mind when she asked 'isn't it ironic?' what is ironic is that the homeless man walked out of the bathroom after this whole ordeal...

Closets, mcgyver, and vegas

hmm......I think I'm going to carry on the theme of "blogging" for one more week at least. The funny thing is that I haven't told anyone (well i secretly told one person, but i'm not going to say his name...uh...I mean, i'm not even sure if he was a boy or a girl...) that I am a blogger yet. It's something that I'm a little nervous with coming out in the open about. I imagine it will be similar to when I tell everyone that I don't choose fruit on the bottom yogurt anymore (yoplait is just way too tasty), that i don't watch macgyver on a consistant basis like i did in the 90's, and of course that big thing in my life i still haven't told anybody about yet, yeah you know what I'm talking about, the whole closet thing that will change mine and everyone's lives forever ESPECIALLY MY FAMILY....fine, i'll just come out and say it...I moved my polo shirts to the beginnging of my closet warddrobe line instead of at the very end, i was waiting to come out and say that but it's out there now.

Here's a quick poem about vegas because I will be going there this weekend:

Vegas, Vegas, Hip Hip Horray
a poem by Jona Ashcroft

today today, is that very day
When I'm going to vegas
Hip hip horray

gambling, sex, drugs and all the things i be hatin'
I think I'll punch him, when i see him
that lameface sat'an

But don't worry, i know who i am
as the scriptures say, i will not be damned
I have the priesthood, what do u say?
I will not be staying in mandolo bay!

M Com 320

I promised myself I would never be a "blogger". But I now see my true colors, that I am motivated by grades and self gratification and not by freedom and liberty. The funny thing is that I tell myself that I will immediately cancel this blog after the semester is over, but chances are that I might actually like it and continue writing on it. (when I am referring to a blog is it "in it" or "on it", there should be some sort of blogging etiquette).
anyways, since my new love is poetry. I will attempt to write a weekly poem for my blog, along with a number of other things.
Here is the first:
Thou Blog
a poem by Jona Ashcroft

thou blog,
how I rue thee...
thou blog,
how i love thee...
oh thou blog,
some day we will be together.
