Making Changes

Today I spent way too much time on the computer.  For Christmas I got a new phone which has a data plan and so I basically stopped getting on the computer to check my email or Facebook or anything else, and as a result I have not been reading any of my friends' blogs on a regular basis (because it's too darn annoying to read a blog in that tiny script on my cell phone browser).  It has also been a completely indecent amount of time since I have updated my own blog - this one, right here.  So when I found myself at home alone with a headache and "nothing else" to do tonight, catching up on blogs is what I did.  I read up on everybody's lives, ooh'd and aah'd at the pictures of vacations and babies and amazingly delicious meals, and then decided it was time to make some changes to my own neglected blog.  So I got a new background (thanks to and chose a new font and everything.  Now I just have to decide if I like it.

About the background:  I love the color palette, and the flowers, but I am not a particular fan of dragonflies  (That's right, you don't need to panic that you have been remiss by neglecting to give me gifts of dragonfly paraphernalia for the past 24 years.), so I am a little torn about the dragonfly on my page.  I mean, it's cute and everything, but I'm just not so into bugs.  What I really wanted as my background was something pretty and feminine like this, but mostly featuring an incredibly beautiful tree.  But apparently I am the only person on earth who likes trees that much, because I have yet to find a blog background that fits that description.  (Okay, that statement was hyperbolic, because I have not looked everywhere, nor have I exhausted every option for finding the perfect tree background for my blog.  However, since I am not exactly capable of writing my own code, nor do I have the inclination to pay someone else to do it for me, I have decided to settle today for what I was able find pre-made and for free.)

About the font:  I really like this font, and though I realize that it is hard to read, I chose it anyway because all the other fonts that looked good with this background (and weren't boring and stupid) were even harder to read.  So sorry.  If it's a real issue for you let me know and maybe I will address it.

About this post:  I am sorry that it is lame and boring.  I know you don't care about my background choice so much.  It's just that I want my blog to really be "me" and I am still trying to figure out how to do that with every aspect of it, not just with the writing.  Therefore, until such time as I am able to properly represent myself with my blog background and font and the like, please suppress any urges you might have to use the dragonfly on this page as an indication of what I would like for my next birthday present.

About this blog:  I am planning some awesome updates for the "near" future.  I promise I am not as lame as this post makes me out to be and that you will have something worthwhile to read on here before too long.
