So it’s 1:26 a.m. right now. Just got home from the gymnase. I’m pretty sure the English language could start getting rid of the personal pronoun I to introduce sentences when listing events that have happened. I feel the context speaks for itself. It could be like (you) understood — I, understood. I like it…who would be the authority on this decision? I suppose I could contact some British official, but the American Language doesn’t have quite the system of L’Acadamie Francaise. I’m not a purist by any means when it comes to language, but shouldn’t we have some sort of policing agent? Should words like wOOt be allowed in our dictionary? I found this little tidbit interesting: This was the number one word of 2007 according to Merriam-Webster Online. Just as a reference, number two was facebook.

1. w00t (interjection)

expressing joy (it could be after a triumph, or for no reason at all); similar in use to the word “yay”

So I started this blog thinking I would talk about gay men and their gym habits. Why do so many of us spend so much time at the gym? Why do those who don’t wish they had the time/money/motivation to go to the gym? Couldn’t a nice walk around a lake, a good run outside, or perhaps even a sport/dance class/yoga class be just as if not more beneficial socially, physically, and (oh no) spiritually? When I was dancing at least 5 hours a day, I still felt the need to go to a gym….why? I don’t know. Really, I want to understand perfection, I suppose

I don’t mean to criticize, but is the pressure for gay men to be thin and beautiful stronger than that for women? I’m not sure. The trends of eating disorders are shifting, and I fear the “ideal” gay male body is becoming smaller and smaller. What for I ask?

Alright, I’m going to be done now. I’m tired and may need to sleep. I have to go to work at Express tomorrow…
