Already Disappointed.

Anybody who glanced at a tv today knows that it was Inauguration Day. The day when the mantle of the presidency shifted from tired shoulders to the "shoulders of change." I am an Obama supporter and have been from the start. However, I find it hard to not be disappointed by what I saw today.
What upset me most was the fact that all of the festivities of the day came off like a really boring red-carpet special. I don't even want to know how much money was spent on the goings-on today. I also hate the fact that celebrities such as Ashanti were interviewed wearing skanky award-show dresses. This is an inauguration people- put on a jacket.
Our country is in a pretty serious bind here. We have money. . . or do we? I hate to think who could have benefited from the funds wasted today.
I still have faith in my boy Obama. I'm just sad is all.

Denied. . .

Well friends. Plans have changed again. I'm okay with it this time, mostly because it wasn't my choice. Unfortunately (or fortunately), I was not accepted at BYU. It's no biggie though because I recently received a promotion that would have prevented me from going to Provo anyway. So now I am a Banker at Wells Fargo.
This is even better than my original plan for the following reasons:
  • I can keep my beard and not feel guilty for being in violation of the Honor Code.
  • I don't have to kick my mild swearing habit.
  • I can enjoy a little bit of extra money while I do online classes and night school.
  • I won't be throwing money away by paying rent.
  • I still get to hang with all my friends who live in the SL valley.
  • I won't be looking over my shoulder everytime I accidentally blurt out "That's what she said."

I'll be honest, I didn't really think I would get into BYU- but it was worth a shot.
