Note: Until I figure out how to get around Tumblr’s insistence on double-spacing line breaks, please ignore the bullets as I attempt to maintain the form of the poem in this medium.

Playing Catch Up
I haven’t made a real post in weeks. I’ll provide some highlights to get you up to speed. It’s 2010! I turn 21 in the middle of this great year and get to partake in the time-honored tradition of buying booze for minors. God bless everyone who did it for me. BC Basketball is still in shambles, but played well enough to beat #21 Clemson in our own Conte Forum. Poor Haiti was...

I know. It’s Saturday. Oops. There are a lot of things I don’t like about this piece, but it’s a good microcosm of poetry as a whole. You have to write ten pieces to get one you like. Even if you don’t like all of that one maybe you can take away one line that you’re proud of. The most important thing is to write and find the discipline to make a routine of it. ...

In an effort to force myself to write, I’ve instituted Poetry Fridays here. Every Friday I will post a new original work from the week. Since I spent my entire winter break in my bed, drunk, or watching football, this first post is my most recent work from earlier in the semester. Note: Until I figure out how to maintain the form of the poem in tumblr’s format, please excuse the bullets or...
You Can't Make This Up
Older Gentleman Outside Gym: ::Whistling:: "How tall are you?"
Me: Nearly 6'3.
OGOG: "You look tall."
Me: "Tall Enough?"
OGOG: "Oh, certainly. You look good. You look good."
Me: "Thank You."
Reading this exchange might make this guy sound like a creep (That's because it totally does). But this was actually one of the most sincere compliments I've ever gotten. He was sitting on a bench outside the gym, we made eye contact, and he wanted to have a little chat. For all the flack they get, elderly people are pretty cool. This absolutely made my day.
A Golf Story Devoid of Tiger
I grew up around the game of golf, but I did not become enamored with it until recently. Raised in South Florida by a father who has managed two golf clubs among other things in his illustrious career, I tried my hand at the frustrating game, but always walked away more flustered with it than when I started. It’s not that I was a club thrower hellbent on sports with more action (I saved...

I’m going to put up music as it comes across my desk. You can discover or rediscover it with me. And, if you like it, this is pretty much the exact concept of blip.fm. I’m on there at http://blip.fm/DJAdonis.
Things I hate that you might not enjoy either.
1. Putting toothpaste on your toothbrush in what you think is a secure manner until the blast from the faucet knocks it off and you have to watch it helplessly flounder in the sink, unable to be used. 2. People at the airport. The airport brings out the worst in everyone. No one understands the concept of getting there early and when a line becomes too long for their feeble mind, they take their...

Thomas Edison Reincarnated
As I invent myself in the blogging world, it made me think of why I haven’t invented any products to benefit mankind. I’m inventive with my wordplay and I have some brains at my disposal so why haven’t I patented anything? The key to an invention is not necessarily being ahead of the curve in the flashiest new technology, but to be cognizant of what people need. Do people need...
