Please Excuse The Mess

"I don't want a kiss goodnight.
I just want to stay here forever."
- Tyler Shaw, Kiss Goodnight
As you may have noticed, I'm attempting to change the layout of my blog to make it look at least a little more presentable. I was super excited yesterday to discover that Etsy sells blog layouts! But, I'm also really, really cheap. Do I actually want to shell out $30 for something that I was once really good at doing? Not really.

Oh, that's right. Did I mention that I used to be a huge geek? Say it ain't so! It's true. In my (first) high school, we were required to take a computer literate aptitude test (try saying that 10x fast). I didn't just pass the test with flying colours; I surpassed it. In grade 9, I was put in the grade 10 computer class. In grade 10, the grade 11 computer class. To prevent myself from getting picked on, I let the older boys (yes, I was the only girl in the class) copy off of my HTML and CSS tests. To them, I was a hero. At least, that's how I saw it.

All of that means that I should have no difficulty making my page look awesome. Except for one minor detail: I hit puberty (I was a late bloomer. Leave me alone) and went through a rebellious stage. By the middle of grade 10, I was too busy skipping school and getting into trouble to care about anything else. Don't worry, I cleaned up my act in time to graduate from (my third) high school with Honours, but I also dropped the geeky computer lingo along the way and now I don't remember much about coding and junk.

I'm still going to try my best to make this page look awesome though. If I fail, I'll just shell out the 30 bucks and buy a premade template.

Wish me luck - and I hope everyone has an amazing weekend! Stay warm!

Totally unrelated, but important nonetheless
