creative charity

while there are many charities out there that feed and clothe the poor, educate those without access to good education, or help people with disabilities it seems to me that there is a niche in the charity market that’s not being filled. My idea is to (hypothetically) establish some sort of charitable organization that caters to young rich eccentrics. i think a lot of them don’t contribute to charities because they feel like everyone gets what they deserve, good or bad (that’s a good thought when you’re filthy rich.) being involved with charities like the ones i mentioned makes them have to think about misery and a lot of bad thoughts. so instead i imagined a charity that would do things like pay people’s parking tickets or give gift cards to random people. i don’t know, something exciting. also the perks of establishing this charity are getting paid as the brains of the operation. i won’t be using this idea so run with it if you feel like it.


hi, nice to meet you

the above statement is intended to give my blogue a more personable ambiance than the cold, web 2.0, plastic interfaced alienation of the rest of the internets. although it is a lie because i have yet to meet you please be assured that i would like to use this virtual real estate of mine to engage in dialogue with many positive, informed, and creative netizens of the web wide world such as yourself. This preemptive meeting is a self-fulfilling prophecy of our eventual association. If you enjoy tea, by all means, take this opportunity to enjoy a cup...

my name is Amir. I'm a student of Sociology and History. I live in the rural reaches of eastern Kentucky with my wife and son. I am studying to be a High School teacher where it will be my goal to inspire and nurture critical thinking skills in students. I like to blame my frequent failure to capitalize correctly on my affinity for the prolific author and poet e.e.cummings who taught me that capitalization is more useful for EMPHASIS rather than propriety whereas it is most likely the fault of a lazy left pinky or ring finger.

Enjoy your visit; it was nice to meet you.

when are you?
