new stuff

As you can see, I decided to change things up a bit around here (unless you're a newcomer - in that case, welcome!).  Blogger has decided to provide more options for backgrounds (about time!). I'm not sure how I feel about the changes I've made, especially with the text color, but I'm leaving it for now. It's kind of hard to read against the books; you have to constantly be scrolling down so the text lines up with the white background, making it much more legible. Hrmmm...

I've applied to about 10 jobs in the past few days, but it feels more like 30. Meh. This is the first time ever since I was a wee little tot that I haven't gone back to school, and it makes me kind of sad. Grad school is still in the runnings toward my next life decision, but in the meantime, what shall I do? I don't really want to get a job, but I need to and I'm getting bored :( I consider myself a city person so living in a town with a population of 1000 isn't too thrilling, especially when it's uber humid and rainy outside. I've tried keeping my mind occupied by reading, exercising, doing crafts, etc., but at the end of the day it's just me - no activities to do, nothing to think about, nothing to plan or cook or tape together. Although this isn't a pretty time in life, it is a necessary one. Who am I, apart from what I do? And who are you, apart from what you do? That is hard to answer.

Sigh. I miss this place:

{Las Islas Cíes - Vigo, Spain}

I also miss my friends in Spain and my friends from SIL and my lip ring.
But tomorrow is a new day.

I always find this time of year so strange now that I am now in school. It feels like I am missing out on something.
