The Meek Introduction of a Trying and Dying Idealist

NOTE: First off, I just want to say thank you to all of you for hanging in there. I think that's pretty cool. I hope this year will be the year for this blog and I have big plans in terms if getting people to know what a Joliet truly is.

More to come,

The Meek Introduction of a Trying and Dying Idealist

            There’s no use in postponing my writing any longer. After much pestering from my brother Dolf, I’ve finally agreed to furnish his blog with a few of my ideas. I go by the pseudonym Grandfather Samuel and I enjoy reading SO much more than writing. It always seems as if I’m either too curt in my words or that I’m a verbose elitist. Is that a normal feeling for a young writer to have? I’m getting off track though. Let’s see… ah yes, I go to a public school in the “less fortunate” side of town. I like to criticize and scold, although conversely I like to be criticized and scolded (something a lot of criticizers and scolders lack). I am an anarchist and as a defense mechanism try to appear as politically illiterate as possible (forgive me Bertolt Brecht). My purpose in this blog will be to recommend any books, films, and facts that I think are noteworthy. I will also write posts like this one whenever that irrepressible sensation to write compels me. My end goal is not to persuade or sway anyone’s opinions. I’m just a guy who wishes to be omniscient. Or at least hold a conversation at dinner parties. – Grandfather Samuel
