The first post and already full of trash

19 03 2008

It’s funny because I’ve put off putting my first post for more than a week. I haven’t forgotten about it, or was too lazy or what not. The fact of the matter is that when you click on my site, its quite clean and free of trash. I didn’t want to screw it up by posting. I do the same thing with exam papers. But as I sit here staring at my blank page, I realize that nobody will read this anyways so why not ‘screw it up’. Regardless of what I type or not type, its my mess anyways and besides you, nobody will read it. Anyways, lets have a moment of silence for a once clean blog.

So, its elections week at the U, and I want to talk about how ridiculous the trash has been. I’ve never been into politics, and generally would like to keep it out of this blog, but I’m not ignorant enough to think that’s possible. The big debate this week is whether or not our jail of a university should separate ourselves from the pack by leaving the big national federation. I’m not going to get who I voted for or who you should vote for, that’s your own damn business and I honestly could care less. The trash I’m talking about is just that. Flyers, EVERYWHERE. In the classrooms, on the walls, in the toilets, on the ground. Every corner I turn, there’s a happy go-lucky smiling dude or dudette giving me some flyer about how much money the fed is wasting or how to vote yes. I voted early to avoid all this junk! I’m all for standing in what you believe in but this is overkill. By the time this mess is cleared up, nobody’s going to want to come to school period regardless of who wins the fight. The NO side talks about how much money we would save (insert something with 6 digits) if we left; I wonder how much money we would save if we didn’t have this thing. Now haters will probably be raving and telling me how this is the real world and I should learn to live in it. They will argue that those guys are doing the right thing, getting you informed as a student, and that I should stop whining and make the right choices. Oh well, there’s the x button (top right for windows, red button on top left for macs) hit it, don’t let your computer freeze on the way out. This is my blog, where I will rant about my pointless antics without having a 3rd world war about it. If you don’t like what I’m saying, let me just tell you that I already told you this post was going to be full of trash at the beginning. Although, since nobody reads this, I shouldn’t have any haters. hmm….

and my last and only reader just left the building…

seems like a good start to the blog!

Kickin out,
