See the colored boy with the big lips and sexy eyes to the right? Oh yes, you know you want me. I’m an out of shape, non-driving, somewhat lazy, laughter loving seventeen year old going on eighteen. I don’t drink or smoke, I don’t have a boyfriend or girlfriend, and I like following politics and making art.
I’ve been doing this blogging thing for almost three years now, and it’s kind of unbelievable that it’s been that long. This actually started as an off shoot of a school project and wound up being used by me as an excuse to dick around in class rather than do work. Such was the story of my first half of high school.
But now I try to be more academically inclined. Going off to Ohio University this fall I know that I have to. I used to want to be a journalist, but at this point I’m not sure what I want to do with the rest of my life. I’m sure I’m not the only one.
I know the title and sidebar would lead you to think I have a Lenin Corner in my house and a blow up Joseph Stalin love doll in my closet, but no. I’m not a communist. The story of me and communism goes back to those academically questionable early years of high school. Somewhere along the line I took to calling things I hated communist. As a joke. My hateful ways passed but the communism thing stayed. I won’t be renaming the blog. If I were to though, it would be called Interplanetary Funksmanship.
Some people may wonder why I post all this information about and even a somewhat incriminating picture of myself on the internets for all to see. I love the anonymity the internets have to offer, but I’ve found that my anonymity largely died over the course of these past few years. So it goes.
There’s more, there’s quite a bit more, but this is your Premier in a proverbial nutshell.
