Rob must have spent a little more time on you

Dear Family,
Hello and greetings from Provo, Utah "the land of milk and honey's." Yes your son has been inspired by a number of factors to put his literary talent to use and start blogging. I have wanted to do this for a number of years, but I have not had the discpline nor have I had the time to actually go and do it. However, as I review the majority of my days I have decided that there is one striking commonality to all of them. I have decided that there is one thing that I do every day multiple times a day. I like the rest of America am obsessed with Facebook. Its a redicolous and shameful admission. I feel as though I like the rest of America am subject to the whim and will of Mark Zuckerburg's evil creation. In fact as I am writing this blog post in the library right now and as i look around the room I can see at least three people on Facebook. Why do we as students look at faebook? What is so appealing about this social network that we check facebook at least on the hour. It makes no sense whatsoever to me. Do we actually believe that within the last hour that we have checked facebook that something has changed? Do we sincerely believe that in the past forty five minutes anything on any of our friends facebook's will have changed? The answer of course is yes. All the reason and logic in the world defies it. However, we still check our facebooks.
  Ever since writing a paper on my media intake for my communications class i have been attempting to shift what I do with the majority of my time. After comming to the conclusion that I look at facebook at least ten to fifteen times a day, I have attempted to cut down the amount of time that I am on facebook. With this being stated, however, it is far easier to state that you will change a habit than to actually change the habit. To this point I have failed miserably. I have tried to stay away from the old FB by reading newspaper articles off of Google news, emailing friends and family members, and checking the blogs of ESPN writers, but in all honasty my facebook intake still remains out of control.
 And so in a last ditch effort to avoid the evils of facebook I have decided to turn to blogging. That is the reason for me to begin my blogging career but my inspiration to do so is actually two people. The first person who inspired me to begin my blogging career was Sarah Holden. She has often spoke fondly regarding the joys of blogging and it has sparked an interest in my heart. however, this was not enough for me to begin my blogging career. There needed to be someone bigger someone better and someone far more inspirational than just my friend sarah. My answer came to me on Friday in the form of a man. His name was Rob. Sarah and I saw him when we were at a cupcake store.  While I hold firm to the fact that my sexual orientation has not been tainted since seeing Rob, this man was the most beautiful man I have ever seen. My admiration for Rob is not driven by some sexual desire. Quite the contrary, I look at Rob as I would look at the David. I do not lust after the David. I do not think that the david is hot. No I look at the david and marvel at the divinely inspired work of Michelangelo. When I look at Rob I look at the divine work of the angels.
  I am puzzled as to what Rob is. Is his overwhelming beauty a gift from God? Was he sent from heaven for us to appreaciate he and his beauty? Or his he a curse from heaven? Is he a plague comparable to the biblical plague of locusts and the death of a first born child? Is Rob sent from God to remind us of our beauty and imperfections? Is he sent to humble us and remind us that we are mere mortals? I do not know. I think if I ever see Rob again I will slit my wrists but die a happy man. and it is truly for this reason I have created this blog. To priase the work that is Rob and to rid myself of the affliction that is facebook.
