Saggy pants: political protest

Saggy pants: political protest

A manifestation of discontentment is sweeping the nation. With the recent economic crisis – unprecedented foreclosure and massive job loss – politically proactive teens are experimenting with visual aids to express their distaste toward the situation. One such idea is to use a flag at half mast, which symbolizes a fallen soldier and apply it to the falling nation; many high school age teens felt that this was an appropriate symbol to showcase their grievances towards the bad political and economic decisions made in the recent years. However, traveling with a flag would be quite tedious; forced to improvise these talented teens found a simple solution: wear their pants at half-mast.
Upon closer inspections this is a glorious idea. It is a protest of the most discreet nature, barely noticeable but of a high visual appeal. The teens are speaking out from behind the scenes. With president Obama’s economic stimulus plan at the front of the solution, these teens are able to bring an arousal for change from the rear. These shame-free adolescents are forfeiting all caboose privacy for the sake of exposing problems with our nation as well as their underwear.
This protest has gained recognition all over the nation, top to bottom. People have even begun to notice trends in who participates in the great pant drop. Generally speaking, young men are very active in the protest; they feel it is their way to stand behind the change that needs to happen in the U.S. It has also been noted that the pant-drop length is directly proportional to the disgust the individual feels toward the slipping economy.
We as citizens must commend these selfless group of teens. Their exposure has led us to realize the lack of spare money we have in this country, as well as a lack of belts. Their persistence also deserves applause; they bare it all types of weather, showing their Fruit of the Loom to increase the fruitfulness of our nation. They are heroes in their own right, and they are sure to go down in history as the highly successful “almost pant- less” protest. Every time America looks at a young man’s boxers, America is reminded to spend and stimulate the economy. These teens are waddling billboards and reminders that it is the people who can overcome these saggy, low points in life.
The teens realize that their protest has evolved from revealing boxers and bad politics to becoming pillars of hope and prosperity for the country. They will continue to show their collections of flames, flags, hearts, and assorted cartoon characters until the federal deficit reaches a surplus. The Pant Warriors will not cease. As hourly wages get cut, the pants will drop lower. Nothing will deter them from their steadfast nature; they will bare it, crack and all, until the problem is resolved. So be assured America, your constant reminders are going to stick around until things get better. While we are low in income their pants will be low as well; the only thing high around here will be unemployment.

Midnight homecoming: or coming home from college at a pequilar late hour

It’s the most pequilar thing walking into a house late at night.
But the strangeness occurs before you even step inside
You push your car door open normally, as there is no need to be quite in the company of crickets
And you shut it normally not in fear of disturbing coons
You can’t help but to slowly take a large gulp of midnight air, because out here is a much different world then inside.
Your first signs of tentativeness begin with the steps, you place your feet lightly, anticipating the creaks, and get off them as soon as you stepped on them.
You see that the porch light is on, a thoughtful gesture to you, a gesture which you have not returned by coming home at a time when it would not be needed.
You turn that doorknob ever so slowly and gently, and attempt to mask the sucking sound the door makes when your new life intersects your old one.
You block out your memories of today as you shut the door, carefully this time, as not to disturb those that love you.
You take off your shoes for barefoot simplicity
But whoops,
Your unintended, unnanouned, presence into the midnight lives of others is distrubted by your unawareness to a new flower arrangement placed by the hallway
Something you didn’t know was there, because you were not around to witness it’s rearagment
You pick this up quickly and quitly, and your homecoming goes along without further incident
You go to bed all by yourself
Because that’s what you wanted

First blog post- what i have learned in 23 years

For what it is worth, here is what I have learned in 23years:
-Going after your dreams is not just spending time on them, or committing to them, being passionate about them, it is about CHOOSING them. When you are younger it is easier to chase something because no aspect of life gets in the way, however, as we grow older and the world becomes the onion we never knew it to be, with many layers each circling deeper than the others we realize that to do the things we want we often have to do other things that we DON’T want to do in order to make it happen, we have to choose between the things we need equally, we have to fight to make dreams happen when reality wants to stomp them
-Not all your friends will be there forever plain and simple, you can count the number of GOOD friends you have one hand, any more than that and you are delusional…

-The role that you fill, your friends fill, your parents fill all changes as you and your life changes, the sooner this is accepted the easier it is. The phrase “you’ll understand when your older” is really true

-Coffee just gets better… and more expensive
