Behind Again & My Computer

It has been a week since I last posted something on here.  Life just seems to be crazy busy.  Summer should not be so intense.  I like my internship a lot, but working all day really limits my ability to do anything else with my time.  I always feel behind and like I do not have enough time to see my friends or sleep.  I did visit camp this weekend, which was enjoyable – more on that in a future post (I do not have time to write it right now).  I miss S-F a lot – it is a fantastic place.

Hopefully, I will have a chance to start posting regularly again.  My blog is getting hits from random websites though, which I kind of enjoy.

I have been having computer problems for quite sometime.  Tomorrow, my plan is to take my (almost) four year old laptop in to be shipped off to be “fixed” under my four year (!) warranty.  I like this computer a lot, but I have had so many problems with it and so many headaches from it that it is almost unbelievable.  I am hoping to buy a new laptop this summer.  I am trying to convince myself to buy a MacBook Pro because so many of my friends have said good things, but they cost so much… Let me know what you think…

New Blog Design

As you can clearly tell, I have changed the design of my blog.  I am hoping to use this platform as a more comprehensive website; to share more than just my blog.  I believe that the new design makes this more feasible.  I like the design and hopefully you do to.  As viewership has gone up, I’ve tried to post more and make those posts more relevant.  I am also hoping that this is a way for me to share more about myself.

The blog is no longer on the front page.  The “home” page is now static.  All old blog links should continue to work.

I have also changed the sidebar and bottom columns.  Along with this, I have added a “widget” called “SocialVibe” through which blog viewers can support a cause that I choose for free.  I saw this and thought it to be an easy way to contribute and help out a worthwhile organization.  Currently, I am supporting “To Write Love On Her Arms,” an organization that works against suicide and depression.  I have had several friends involved with their work.  Take a few minutes to give your time.

Also, some posts have ads appearing on them.  As of right now, I have not placed any ads on any posts.  as such, I am not benefiting from these ads and am not encouraging you to click on them.

11:11

Yesterday, my blog surpassed 1,111 views.  I’m pretty happy about that.  I want to thank everyone who has looked at my blog and/or supported what I am doing.

Perhaps you have heard that if you make a wish when the time is all the same number (e.g. 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, etc.) that the wish will come true?  I do not know that to be true, but I figure that it cannot hurt to try.  One of my friends like to say that is that were the case, then 11:11 would be the luckiest time/number there is.  Hopefully then, this is a good sign for my blog.
