I have never had a blog before, and I honestly don't know how long this will last, but I really liked the idea of being able to rant and rave about things without having to personally annoy my friends and family with them. I figured, this way I could write, and whomever wanted to read it would do so. I think something I have told numerous people sums up, at least partially, why I started this: "If I posted everything I wanted to on Facebook, I would have absolutely no friends." The reason? So many idiosyncrasies or beliefs that people have on a host of topics very much either a) irritate the hell out of me or b) are so taboo to talk about publicly that I would be isolating not only myself but a certain few people, and no one likes that.  Some of the topics that I would like to blog about, at some point or another, are (in no particular order):
  • How much babies are able to piss me off in such a short amount of time
  • Religion
  • Politics
  • Painful grammar (Oxford commas; using "your" and "you're" correctly, etc.)
  • Ridiculous beliefs people pass as legitimate (Astrology and Horoscopes, Alien abductions (for now), etc.) 
  • Drug legalization
  • "l33t" speak and how it is not English
  • Tupac and Biggie
  • Bees, Bears, and Beards (really, just the latter two, but I love alliterations)
  • Books that I would recommend to the nonfiction reader
  • Logical fallacies common in everyday life
  • Why I love UT Football and hate Lane Kiffin
  • Quotes that I wish I could regularly use (for example: "I only smoke blunts if they rolled proper." - Biggie Smalls)
  • Skinny jeans on males and females: definitely a much needed double-standard
  • People who argue for the sake of arguing who employ terrible arguments
  • Mathematical beauty to the mathematics hater
These are just a few things that popped into my mind in all of five minutes while I was typing, and I wrote out an excessive amount of them so that I would remember them. I will post a new blog starting this list later, but I figured this is a good start for now.


  1. Will the grammar section cover whomever vs whoever?

  2. More than likely. I was thinking that was another important rule to cover.
