Irony At Its Best

I've had many ironic experiences in my life, but I never thought I would have one about a blog page. First and foremost, I'd like to say that blogging is LAME. Well, at least as of yesterday.

What's the deal with blogging anyway? Hmmmm.... I think it's the fact the people everywhere around the world can write endless amounts of posts about their seemingly exciting lives...or not so exciting.

Funny thing is, blogging in the past...well five minutes...seems like it could be fun and potentially a little addicting. Little addicting? Okay maybe huge addicting since I have a professor who is
O-B-S-E-S-S-E-D with blogging. Actually she is the one who got me interested in blogging. So, thank you Sister F. for helping me become another obsessed blogger on the world wide web.

Now I come to another dilemma about blog pages. I have a blog entitled
Paradise and Palm Trees. Catchy, right? I thought so too. Then I realized that it is the Christmas season and that I should probably create a page that emulates the spirit of Christmas. I figure, what's wrong with Christmas in paradise anyway? People pay good money to leave the snow during Christmas time. I'm keeping the paradisaical Christmas blog page as is.

So, back to my professor who is obsessed with blogging. I'm thinking that the smart thing to do would've been not to convince your students to spend anymore time on the Internet than they already do. Lets be honest here. We all know that everyone from age 5 to 105 spends most of their life on Facebook these days.

Life is becoming a vicious cycle of Internet blogging and facebook.

We wake up and get on computer, go to work and get on the computer, and then come home and get on the computer again. What is wrong with this picture? I'm thinking that being sucked into the black hole called a computer screen seems pretty messed up to me.

Anyway, that is life for you.
Messed up. If your life isn't messy....then I would have to say that you are in denial...which means you're messed up like the rest of us anyway.

Isn't life wonderful though? Usually the big messy things in our life are the
BEST learning experiences and help us to become better people. Kind of ironic, huh? I think so too.

YAY! I get to be the first person to comment on your first blog ever.

Now that's ironic, since I personally know your messed up O-B-S-E-S-S-E-D professor who sucked you into this black hole.

Welcome to the black hole. Don't tell Wolfgang about your new obsession because he just wouldn't understand.

I only wish you had started during the semester so we could blog together and then wink at each other during class. Plus you could have gotten extra credit.

and btw, I don't spend much time on Facebook. Is that where everyone is hanging out?

Good luck with your paper!

Oh, and NICE POST. Nice music. Nice Christmas trees/palm trees.

I think you should be an English major. ;)
