Introduction of a New Author
Good Morning! Or if you are anything like me, you are reading this at 3:00 AM while asking yourself, “How did I find myself on this corner of the internet?” Well, regardless of the time of day, I would like to officially introduce myself, Kyle Jon Aure, as a new author on the Daily Buzz.
Now that you know my name and have seen a picture of me your first question probably is, “What makes you qualified to write a blog?” To be honest I have the same question. So let me tell you a story of how I came to be here.
It was about a month ago. I came into my office and found a mysterious note on my desk that read:
Meet me behind Plaza Hall at 3:30 PM.
– Totally Trustworthy Friend
At 3:35 PM I rounded the corner behind Plaza Hall. The wind behind Plaza was so intense and cold that I could barely keep my eyes open. The figure that stood in front of me was of average height had long brunette hair but wore a disguise that made it impossible to identify who this person was. A soft whisper sang out of the figure’s mouth that said, “With great power comes responsibility. I am here today to grant you power beyond your wildest imagination.” I staggered backwards in fear. If comic books had taught me anything, they taught me not to trust strangers who offer you powers. I asked in return, “What do you want in return for these powers?”
The figure just stood there without a word. After what seemed like 5 minutes the figure sang once again, “You have proven yourself worthy. Return once more to the desk from which you came. You will find there the power you have been granted. Use it well Kyle Jon – I – Will – Be – Watching.” The figure started to glow bright and ran toward the wall. Just at that moment I reached for my phone and captured the photo you see below. The light quickly subsided and all that was left was an outline of the figure burned into the wall.
When I returned to my desk I found that I had administrative access to the Daily Buzz. I don’t think I will ever see this mysterious figure again.
Now that I have this power it has taken me a while to figure out what to write about. Then this morning it hit me. I am not one of those people who gives advice, does technical reporting, or is artistic in the slightest. What I am good at is doing the WRONG thing! So starting next week I am going to write a bi-monthly blog titled “How NOT To.” Expect titles such as:
1. How not to get a good night’s sleep
2. How not to study for a test
3. How not to stay healthy
4. How not to approach a goose
… And much much more!
Through this process I am hoping to convince you that my one true superpower is doing everything wrong the first time. Don’t worry though: the same informative articles that you have come to expect from the Daily Buzz will still be published. I just plan on giving a bit of anecdotal, humorous, storytelling flair to this Blog in the hopes that I don’t have to have a face-off with the Mysterious Figure again.
As a sendoff to my first blog post I ask every single one of you to please look out for this mysterious figure. If you see them on campus please let me know. Also, if you have any suggestions of topics you’d like me to write about, please leave a comment down below or tweet me @Kyle_Aure
