    The Real World Shapes Teen Personalities

    I was tragically bored for the duration of our five-week-break. On the nights that my friends from home and I decided to stay in and be lame I would spend hours on Facebook. It got embarrassing, to say the least. However, on such nights that I stayed on that mind-numbing site until 4:00 a.

    I Say: Get Over That’s What She Said

    I hope that all you out there in Friartown had a restful and enjoyable semester break. I did; I got to catch up with some friends at home, but more importantly, I got to catch up on all of the television that I missed during the semester when I was doing my work.

    High Fives: Joel McHale is coming to PC. Yay! We love the host of The Soup. Dimitri Martin gets his own show on Comedy Central. (Speaking of comics we love.) Nose Dives: Classes not being cancelled on Wednesday. Not only did we have to stomp around in the snow, but when the rain started pouring everything iced over!

    Obama’s Speech Was Hopeful and Realistic

    Last Tuesday, I eagerly sat in front of my TV with some friends in anticipation of what was to be the best speech I have ever heard: Obama’s inauguration speech. At the time I had no idea it was going to be that good. At first I was a little worried about the delivery; even though Obama has been an incredible speaker in his political life thus far, I was still cautious while preparing to listen to it.

    Know When It’s Time To Walk Away

    There comes a time when every man must learn the taste of his own pride, use a ruler to square his shoulders and set his weight a little backward so he can turn on his heel and walk away. This man had decided that now was his time. He had heard that vengeance was best served cold, and he wondered how pride ought to be served.

    Sign of the Apocalypse #264: Theatre of the Absurd

    There’s something positively, almost intangibly, surreal about Florida. If you’ve been, then you certainly know what I mean: The pristine resorts, blinding beachfront, fragrant flowers, hotel workers all smiles and hellos, not a drop of trash in sight. It’s paradise, now with walker-lanes on the sidewalk and complimentary Metamucil tablets at breakfast.

    A Black Man in Russia

    I stand, tall and proud a mockery, all thanks to the color of my skin. Dressed in Hannibal’s finery, a fool’s portrait of military might and widespread infamy. But Rome is no more, and, free the dread of one old man. Merely this mad Russian king who sees the color of my skin as a sign of my power, my might.
