So this is my first official blog. Sure I went through my Xanga phase but does that really count as blogging? I think we can all agree that it can. And that it's awesome. Especially if you are an eleven year old girl. (note: if you are an eleven year old girl, don't be offended. The fact that you're reading this means you're years beyond your peers) Lately I've been bothered by the fact that I don't/can't expound on what I'm really thinking. So I figured if I had a real blog, no offense Xanga, I would force myself to organize my thoughts in a way that I could write about anything and it be more than five sentences. Honestly the longest paper that I have ever written was a 12 page paper in Music History...I included more than a few pictures and I had my font size set at 16. I'm not sure why I've always been a "straight to the point" kind of guy and I really haven't realized it until recently. It's almost as if I'm an emotionless robot spewing forth facts about why tomatos are reddish in color. (It's due to conjugated double bonds) Argh!! It is really frustrating to have an idea or thought in your head, but lack the ability to communicate to other people to where they can understand it. So bear with me as these first few blogs are short, boring, and concise. (but sometimes educational. See: conjugated double bonds) I think my lack of confidence in communication has been partly due to the classes that I have taken which required me to memorize large amounts of information and regurgitate it on a test verbatim. If it wasn't worded just right, you were wrong...so at this point it has taken me 30 minutes to get this far. Pretty sad isn't it. But I think the more I write and the more I work to organize my thoughts more efficiently, I'll be able to write like Salinger did when he was in the 6th grade.
