Well, Here I Am
So I know it may seem as If I haven’t written a blog in a really long time, but this is not true! I just haven’t been finishing or submitting them. For example, the following passage was taken from my last half-assed endeavor on May 2nd 2012:
10-page paper due tomorrow…..write a blog
This is the first blog I’ve written since March, my bad dudes! But seriously, sorry WUVAonline, I am the embodiment of deplorable human being and I wish I had a fat excuse like my dog died, or I’ve been volunteering at a retirement home for African refugees with diseases that I’ve been helping extract while also delivering babies and reading stories to 3-legged puppies….but unfortunately I’ve just been writing papers, sleeping and going to the Backyard.
Regardless, this is a timely blog concerning finals and how I’m not doing any work. It was inspired by 2 things: 1) The meme of the Dos Equis man saying “I don’t always study… but when I do, I don’t” and 2) the fact that a friend of mine just texted me “it’s 11:30 pm, is that too late for Cookout?” to which I replied “pick ya up in 5 mins.”
I have 40 pages worth of papers to write with 6 days remaining in which to write them and I just finished watching a Frazier marathon on the Hallmark channel. That’s not even a joke, I did that.
And joke it was not! I continued to watch “Frazier” until I fell asleep! Hence I did not finish this blog, nor did I finish my paper! But at this point, finals are over and it is summer time. Thank the lord. Now those papers are a mere figment of my stress nightmares and I have nothing to do but work at my internship endlessly and prepare to study abroad in the fall. Unfortunately, those things have been consuming all of my time. This morning, I read over one of my blogs from last summer and the content was really annoying. All I did was write occasionally and watch television. Now I’m thoroughly consumed by chores and projects. Such is life, though. At least I don’t feel worthless.
Yet, I have had some spare time. Like on Sundays when all the bureaucracies are closed and I pretend that there’s absolutely nothing I could do to be productive. Last Sunday I went to a 3pm movie with my parents at our local independent cinema. The film was described to me as being about some elderly people who travel to India for retirement. Not usually my plot of choice, but again, clocking in time with my parents seemed like a preferable alternative to sitting on my computer all day. Turns out every human being in Norfolk, Virginia upwards of 60 years old found this film a preferable activity as well. I’m not exaggerating when I say the place was completely packed. They ran out of popcorn. I had to snag a box of skittles instead, one of the few concessions which evade the elderly being that they are a snack for the robust teeth of the young and vibrant.
All popcorn issues aside, 2 hours amongst Norfolk’s finest senior citizens wasn’t so bad. We all laughed as one at the multitude of erectile dysfunction jokes the film had to offer. It was all fun and games until we all found ourselves in the same parking lot afterwards. I think I found religion after escaping the peril of 100 60-80 year olds behind the wheels of various Volvos in the same packed parking area.
All in all…… the end.
