School is all but over at the University of Utah and most of the flyers promoting causes and artistic endeavors that pile upon each other on the walls and doors have been removed. Except, that is, for a few new ones that say "What's your issue?" and then in a red-orange box below those words different issues have been entered in white capital letters like WAR IN IRAQ, SEXUAL ASSAULT, LOCAL FOOD, and the like. Which are all good causes and all, but why should I care? These are causes that when they are fixed, they aren't necessarily fixed because another faction have issue with the fact that they fixed it. Do you see where I'm going with that? Good, then I can move on to what my issues are.
My issue is that I have to come back here to school to turn in my portfolio for the semester because I didn't get to the Department of Communication in time to turn it in this evening. This means that I will have to wake up a little bit earlier tomorrow morning, be a little bit more committed to making it out the door at the predetermined time (which will be earlier than the usual), drive all the way to school just to turn it in, and then go to work.
My issue is with myself. I had almost four hours to work on the portfolio, but I messed around on the computer for a few hours and the portfolio was a little more difficult than I figured it would be. I used to be good at eating my vegetables before my dessert, but now I have gotten in the habit of doing the opposite and it leaves me with no room for nutrition. Metaphor? Simile? Whatever.
My issue is with mistletoe. Why doesn't anyone use it? You know you want to. I would, but I am afraid of gaining the reputation - however true it may be - of being the pervert who tongues women who without asking. So, if I tongue you down this holiday season, just be greatful for my boldness.
My issue is with this month going by too fast. Come on, clock, you did a great job of slowing down during school, why can't you do the same for winter vacation? I just barely started listeing to Christmas music and haven't had time to make the Christmas mix I would like to give to some folks. Oh, and Christmas shopping hasn't even been considered.
My issue is with Freaks and Geeks. This is the best show I have ever seen. Maybe it's the honeymoon phase, but I really believe that it's true. If only it had lasted more than one season. On Monday night, I stayed and Suzanne, Lisa, and Kristin's until almost 3 a.m. watching five episodes. Last night, I only watched one episode, but we didn't start it until about 12:30 a.m.
