"Dang, I can't remember... Does [sic] your blog character McKenzie a pseudonym for Tyler, Rachel, or Christina?"
Yes. I did tell this person which it was, since he had already figured it out on his own and just forgotten, and honestly I think I probably never should have bothered with the pseudonym thing in the first place because no one cares what I write about them anyway.
"And I just read more of your blog- I have issues figuring out how to follow blogs so it always takes me forever to look it up...but anyway, congrats on getting the job!!! and I don't think your voice being monotone is a big issue in person because then people can see your facial expressions/how you actually feel more. And is dating really not talked about that much at USU? because it's everything here [at BYU]..."
1. Thank you. 2. Apparently very few people can see my facial expressions. I can count on one hand the people who have ever noticed when something is wrong, and in fairness add the couple of people who thought something was wrong when nothing was wrong. But in the past I have literally been fantasizing about suicide when someone came along and said "How are you?" and I said "Good" and they said "That's good" and went on their way. 3. Not having attended there myself, I don't want to make assertions outside the bounds of my knowledge, but it seems that BYU has a very "special" little subculture of Mormon culture. When I first watched "The Singles Ward" after three years in a singles ward, in Utah no less, I didn't think "This is so relatable" nearly as often as "Wow, Provo Mormons are freaks." With all due respect. I know we're all freaks to everyone else so we have to stick together.
Today we had a convert baptism at the Tabernacle. I don't know her at all, have never spoken to her in my life, but I went to be supportive and feel the Spirit and it was good. The refreshments were also good and I took a lot because for whatever reason a lot of people didn't bother to take any. I wish I had more to say about it but I really don't.
I am sharing this campaign ad because I find it hilarious. I am not telling you who to vote for. Vote for whoever you want, as long as it's not Hillary or Trump. Yay democracy! Of course, there may be a Canadian or two reading this who wouldn't be voting here anyway, but I know you're still watching our election closely because we're the most important country in the world.
