The other day, I was looking at my journal while logged out, only seeing the public entries, and it kind of made me flinch. Lots of ranting and complaining and so one. :/ It made me wonder what sort of skewed image of myself I am portraying to the internet at large. I can think of all sorts of reasons why things have ended up this way...most my positive posts remain F-locked because they contain personal info, or I just forget to switch non-personal posts from locked to public. I guess the only time I think to change a post's security setting is when I'm pissed and want the whole world to know it. :/ So in addition to going back and unlocking some posts that don't have any personal info, I am making a HAPPY post today.
Happy thing #1: I changed my layout. Really, truly changed it...not just swapping out the header. This is the first real layout change I've had in over four years. Like my last one, this is also from thefulcrum
. I like it, but its going to take some getting used to. Its so....white. I feel kind of like I'm in a visual limbo without the black that bordered my page for so many years. I've also finally fixed the table in my profile info. I was viewing my profile on my iphone and noticed the Garfield image was partially duplicated/repeated and it just looked stupid. It bugged me that all this time I thought my profile looked fine, it actually looked messed up to anyone viewing it on a web browser other than Firefox. But, the problem is finally solved. Hooray!
Happy thing #2: The time change!! Sure, I lost an hour this weekend and I'm having a hard time getting to sleep at nights (but that's not all that unusual since I've always been a night owl). The important thing is I get daylight in the evenings again. Yaaaay! It feels wonderful to get home from work and be able to enjoy the natural sunlight coming in through the windows. Spring forward FTW!
Happy thing #3: The weather...its not too cold, not too hot, just right. Some of the natives say its unusually warm for the time of year, but to me, this is nice. I don't need to wear a jacket, but I'm not sweating either.
Happy thing #4: Its spring break! And with the students gone and not in classes, everything is so blissfully peaceful. Because, yeah...I'm at that point in my life where school holidays mean nothing to me work vacation-wise. Instead, its a vacation from the traffic all those students generate.
And that's it for now...I am actually starting to get a bit sleeping. I guess I'm finally acclimating to the time change.
