Today I decided to check my blog stats to see if anyone new stumbled onto this site. I stared, a little shocked at the screen at the most recent statistics, then I sent a text message to a friend:
I just got blog hits from Provo. Scary.
You’ve reached a new level of globalization.
So, I followed the statistics and saw the ISP was Brigham Young University. What are co-eds doing reading this blog? What are BYU co-eds doing reading this blog? Don’t they have at least 15 credit hours per semester (7 per term) and lots of dating to accomplish? Okay, the dating part is a bit of a stereotype, one that I never really participated in. I might have gone on one date each year I was there. I don’t see how people found the time. Dating plus studying plus maintaining a decent GPA plus a job if you had one plus football games or whatever other sporting events suited your fancy plus church plus church callings plus church service. Do you even have to wonder why Utah had an extremely high concentration of home meth labs? Good thing I kept my life pared down to school (sometimes) and church (sometimes). Now? I don’t see how I did it then. Working full-time is plenty for me. Now, I don’t see how people work full-time and go to school and raise families. And then, how do these people find the time to maintain a website on top of reading all the blogs out there? They pick and choose, I guess. They probably pace themselves, too. Just like I do. I wonder if those BYU co-eds would end up choosing me.
Singapore: cool; Australia: I fished for it; West Point: meh. Provo: huh?
