Sunday, November 18, 2007


Dear friends and family,

I have embarked on a mission to free my people of the 2200 floor from the tyrant commonly refered to as Paul. I have rallied some supporters and drafted a declaration. We have signed it and will march to the barricades soon to deliver our declaration of independence. We are no longer May hall 2200, but rather the United Emirates of 2200. Here is our declaration:

In an unidentified Room November 17th 2007

The Unanimous Declaration of these rooms of 2200, In the course of a semester, it becomes necessary that individuals must dissolve their ties to forces that do restrict their natural housing rights. Having exercised sufficient appeals and appeasement the people of 2200 floor do feel that it is their solemn right and duty to break the bonds that tie them to oppressive figures.

We hold these truths to be self evident that all men at BYU are created equal. That they are endowed by their housing contracts with certain unalienable rights among these are the rights to study, socialize, and live within the honor code without unnecessary impediment. That to secure these rights, Hall Authority figures are granted certain rights and privileges to aid them in the general protection of these rights. We also do declare that the only purpose of authority figures is to protect and promote these rights. And when upon repeated occasion authority, granted by the people, has been misused to violate the general rights of the people, it becomes necessary and divine that those under such conditions expel the oppressive force.

Among the offenses that May Hall leadership has committed against those among living in the 2200 area are:

The right to view the beauty of the world without impeding barriers upon our windows (aka screens)

The right to fasten appropriate displays on our walls by non-destructive means

The forced defrosting of the ice chests during the living quarters inspection

The frivolous demands placed upon us during times of academic stress

The units of temperature control consistently fail to work

The slandering and attempted removal of our fully clothed and modest Jocelyn

The failure to provide due process and unjust accusations against one Skylar Brown

The Display of music and movies has been suppressed under the guise of federal law, though such localized sharing is clearly allowed under the Copyright Law of 1978: Chapter 1 Section 110 subsection 5.

Requests for funds allocated for public gatherings have been delayed and suppressed

The failure to provide proper space for the removal of daily garbage within a reasonable distance

Paper for the wiping of rumps has been withheld for unknown and destructive purposes. The infrequently provided paper is too thin and rough to be used and is, shall we say, uncomfortable

The showers have not been maintained to a sanitary degree and we bathe in our own filth

The right to Gauntlet has been violated

Private social functions have been excessively monitored
Therefore in the light of such grievous offenses we hereby do shed the name of May Hall 2200. We hereby formally declare ourselves fully independent and place the name and mantle upon ourselves as the United Emirates of 2200. And with that name comes the full immunities and protections that any sovereign living quarters do enjoy, including and not limited to the rights to establish our own lobby and visiting hours. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our honor code.

(signed, all members of the floor formerly called May Hall 2200)

I hope all is well with you and that this revolution may inspire your own desires to overthrow tyrannical rule. May the force be with you.

Room Decor

So i get bored while i am studying and for breaks i often go run around in the hallways or go into someone else's room to distract them too. or i decorate my room...

my printer has been broken for a bit and it has taken me FOREVER to fix it, but by some miracle it works now, so great day. my side of the room is now the batcave (you can see the sign hanging down). I have my soccer banners from home, and a skylar decided it would be fun to tape all my cereal, crackers, colored pencils, razor, chips, and granola bars to the ceiling. my room is so festive now!

this is my ski rack. The way i see it is that the prophet has asked us to have adequate food storage. If BYU comes underfire, i'll for sure be able to live in the batcave for at least a week to a week and a half. i have cans of corn, black beans, green beans, apple sauce, pineapples, tuna, pb&J, pringles, doritos, tons of drinks and V8 splash, and the list goes on and on my friend.

oh and the battle ax reminds people not to mess or else...

My boy, Mitt

So i got a letter from my boy, Mitt, for my 5$ contribution. And i quote:

"I cannot begin to thank you enough for your generous contribution of $5 to Romney for President, Inc. Your powerful grassroots support has inspired everyone connected with our campaign, and Ann and I truly appreciate your generosity."

I was so proud of my personalized letter from mitt that i put it up on my closet door. A few days later, i came in and there was a post-it stuck on it, saying ? are you hidding something?... i look and see that the letter is to: Ms. Taylor A Jensen.
my heart shattered. he buttered me up with all of his appreciation, only to crush me.
he is lucky i dont like hilary.

a whole bunch of random.

we'll start with preference. i went with anne pearson, and i went as a (gay) movie director, and she was a ballerina. it was a blast! here are the pictures. and dont start any rumors.
the next event is our halloween partay. we were supposed to have 50 bucks from the hall for decorationg and such. we submitted our list of stuff we were going to buy, then our hall mom went and bought it. using 7 dollars. we got a bag of spiderwebs and 2 50 light strands. great.

so then it was up to us and our genius. First, we transformed a room into a movie theater, complete with stadium seating couches and a projector coming off the top of the closet where we were able to watch the ring. next, we transformed a room into the food room, complete with couch, 3 fridges stacked in a pyramid, inigo montoya on top, and 18 pizzas and tons of drinks. Next, we had the halloween twister game in a room. Finally, we had my room. Joe and i gutted it- we took our our beds and emptied the room except for our closets and shelves. We then hooked up strobe lights and a fog machine and brought in some more speakers, and we turn our room into a dance room. it was awesome.

We also had a mini haunted house at the end of our floor that you had to walk through. it was a great party and we had a ton of fun hosting it. may hall 2200 is simply the best.
