New Layout

Monday, February 16, 2009

Because it had gotten to the point where I intensely dislike the previous one. It was too loud. Too overly pink. Too reminiscence of xx. Too associated with memories of ridiculous teenage angst and horrible manglish. Too childish.


It kept affecting my desire to blog anything remotely serious because one look at it, and all I can see and feel is 'silliness only please'. All my thoughts written down in my rawest moments immediately becomes inane and superficial in contrast to the frivolity of the layout.


Hence the creation of an entirely new layout, a style similar to that of livejournal which I love
Although significantly reduced, I still kept the color pink as the main color scheme because it is still my fav. color and also a subtle reminder to remain joyous and carefree and not be bogged down by penning one too many emotional posts.


Lastly, time flies and I am no longer the angsty 15 year old high-schooler with social insecurities but a 19 year old college sophomore instead. So I think if there is a moment in life that calls for a change, one of them would be now :)

ps: Thank you lei for helping me touch up my banner. I love you
