Happy week four, readers!
This is only my third blog post this year, but I’m already running out of blogging inspiration. Lately, it seems all of my energy has been focused on school, and of course perfecting the Mustang Daily every night, so my creativity seems to be running on fumes.
Well, I figured my blog should at least be somewhat relevant to my job, so this post should probably be entertainment-related. But seeing as I spend my days slaving over textbooks and my nights in the Mustang Daily newsroom, I’m not exactly doing entertaining things (you’re probably thinking I need to get a life right about now). So I thought, what do people like to read?
Since the Mustang Daily is a student-run newspaper, I should be asking what do students like to read. And as a college student, I know that we spend way too much time reading for school — or at least we’re supposed to; sometimes there’s just no way we can avoid 30-minute power naps between classes turning into winter hibernation. To put it simply, students want to read something easy.
Therefore, my task is to turn this blog into something easy and entertainment-related. Readers, I present to you, in no particular order, a list (short and sweet) of entertainment-related grievances.
1. San Luis Obispo radio stations. When I first moved to San Luis Obispo, I never realized I’d have so much trouble finding enough radio stations to set in my car. But trust me, it’s become a huge problem. Back home in San Diego, when one ghetto-fabulous song fades into a commercial, I can easily replace it with another song equally as ghetto and fabulous (clearly, my taste in music is one of my classiest attributes). Here, my choices are station one, station two, way too much country music and a variety of static noises and songs that would best be enjoyed with a Tecate in-hand.
2. Sitcom super-speed. Alright “Modern Family” fans, sympathize with me on this one. While I was eagerly awaiting the third season of the hilarious show, I had not anticipated that Lily was going to transform from a toddler into a five-year-old within a matter of months. No one else on the show got any older, which leads me to believe that Cam and Mitchell may have taken home the wrong child from the grocery store one day. Just sayin’, the lack of consistency can be misleading.
3. Christmas in September. Okay, this isn’t exactly entertainment-related, but it really, really bugs me when I’m still sweating through my clothes and I can’t walk in a store without being showered in red and green glitter from the excessive fiber-optic Christmas decorations that inevitably make an appearance before we’ve even picked out our Halloween costumes.
There you have it readers, a quick list of nonsense to spice up your day. Now get back to that five-hour power nap.
