Since it's a new year and all, I'm going to try to start keeping a blog again. But I'm not going to use it as my diary like my old blogs used to be. I'm just too paranoid about releasing my inner-most thoughts onto the internet without any guarantee that they will be found by the wrong person. So this is more or less going to be me posting things I find online that I find interesting, or my random, current thoughts about things going on in my life or just society in general.
I'm using a template design for now, but as a "art school" student, I feel really guilty about not creating something completely from scratch. So this is just temporary until I find the time and inspiration to make my own graphics. Anyways, it's just the background image that I'm using, so it shouldn't take long for me to make a new one. I've def. learned that I'm into that grungy look when it comes to designing things though.
So I was just watching Becoming Jane, starring Anne Hathaway and James McAvoy. I love that movie, despite the non-traditional happy ending. It amazes me that Jane Austen could write such amazing stories about love and happiness, when she never got to keep such things in her own life. According to the story, she did get to fall in love, but she made a enormously difficult and selfless decision and gave it all up. And where a normal person would probably live in bitterness for the rest of their lives, she went on to write 6 of the most beautiful and well-known love stories in literature. You gotta give the woman some credit. I absolutely love her style of writing too.
