Yet Another Blog Redesign


I was so very terrified going into the last one (Stanford) but I managed to do it. I was shaking and on the verge of tears afterwards, but that's ok, it was over by then. It's out of my hands now, and all I can do is hope that the last four years of my life will be deemed worthy enough to garner acceptance into a school, any school. I've convinced myself that even if I only get into a safety UC, I'll be ok. Less stress is more time for hobbies (aka blogging) so I'm going to be happy wherever I end up.

Speaking of hobbies, you may or may not have noticed that the design of this blog is completely different (though I don't know how you could have possibly missed it)! Yup, instead of going to sleep like a normal, sane person, I decided to reward myself for finishing college apps with a free for all blog redesign. I had only intended to change the fonts, but got distracted and changed the theme (hence the cute little ribbon for the tabs), which forced me to redo all of my previous customizations as well, but now it's even better than before! I was able to explore more and add a few new customizations as well. I honestly love working with CSS, because I somehow understand it intuitively, so it's both a challenge and a learning experience to navigate myself. The blog is definitely way more girly than it was before, and I'm still not sure if I like it yet, especially the color scheme. I know for sure that I love that shade of purple, but I don't know if it's a good idea for a blog. We'll see.

As it is almost 3:00AM now, I did not get to do all of the customizations I wanted to. I need to upload a new sidebar picture so it's the proper size, and I'm considering creating a headbar picture to use instead of regular words (because they're glitchy when they load).

AND REMINDER: THIS BLOG WILL BE CHANGING URLs ON JANUARY 15, 2015. THE NEW URL WILL BE I'll keep posting this reminder at the top of all my new blog posts from now until then.

Let me know in the comments what you think! If you have any questions about fonts or CSS or anything else on his blog, I will be glad to answer them :) Hope you've all been having a wonderful 2015 so far! ◊
