New theme

Well, I finally updated WordPress. I was tired of getting so much spam so I updated wordpress to the newest version. So far, I am very happy with it. I’m still learning a lot of the new features. From what I can tell, they’ve added new CMS options and a new admin system. I need to learn all these new menus. Heh, I upgraded through almost 10 versions. Whoops, I guess I was just a little far behind!

I love the new post writing module. In version 2.0 (the version I was running), they had a very bulky setup. The menus were huge and there was a lot of wasted real estate all over the page. Now, you have a more streamlined system with less wasted space and an easier system to work with. There were all these little bugs that were annoying me. Like one, whenever I was writing a post, if I hit enter 2 times, the editor would add a few extra lines with whitespaces. It’s not that big of a deal, it just annoyed the hell out of me!

I installed a new theme to the blog too until I can make one that works with my current version. Who knows, I might just keep this. It’s blue with hints of green, looks a lot like Vista, and is very smooth. If I do end up keeping it, I will probably down the font size and change it to justified text rather than align left text. I don’t know why, but I really like justified text. I guess it makes the information seem easier to read, for me anyway.

Well, I almost have my music module done! All I have to do is find out how to seek through music. I’m not sure how to do it through flash. I also can’t seem to find any information on how to do this online either. I might just release the unfinished version soon so I can just move on to other things for a while. My directory script is almost done as well. I don’t know if I want to use this though. I guess I could, but there’s not much I would put in there to download. Meh… I’ll think of something I guess. I have not even started on a gallery system yet. I think I will just install a premade one so I don’t have to do any work! I need more pictures before I can put it up. I don’t know why, but I just don’t take too many pictures. I would like to get some pictures of Liz and I sometime. With our school situation, it’s not like we can see each other very much. When we are together, we are usually not thinking of taking pictures.

Until next time!


Life update.

So, as some of you know, Liz and I started dating. She’s a wonderful person and I’m very lucky to have someone like her in my life. Everyone I tell that we’re dating just says either, “It’s about time you two started dating,” or “I saw this coming a long time ago.”

After the reception for Heather’s wedding was over, Liz and I went back to her house and started to watch The Pursuit of Happyness (which was a good movie). The next thing you know we are dating and cuddling on the couch. It was such a great night.

Well, this was just a quick update. Keep on living life to the fullest!



I was still awake at 4 AM last night and started thinking about trust. I see so many people that refuse to trust people. I only think this hurts you in the long run. If you can’t trust anyone, will you be destined to live alone for the rest of your life? How could you be friends with someone you don’t trust? How could you be with someone you don’t trust? Trust is something that makes you feel safe when you are with someone. It’s that thing you can rely on time and time again. I love my friends. They are all very trustworthy. I would not trade any of them for the world!

You know, I think I have some of my deepest thoughts when I can’t sleep. I don’t know what it is, but my mind is always going over numbers during the day. When I go to sleep, I relax and clear my mind. It almost seems like time stops. This might sound weird, but I relax my mind by thinking of what my next thought is going to be. I don’t know how, I don’t know why, but it seems like my brain just loses train of thought. After I start thinking about what my next thought will be for a minute or two, I start asking questions to myself. The first question I asked last night was covering trust. Heh, maybe I should see a psychiatrist about my head. It would be interesting to see what all these deep thoughts I have mean. Why did I start thinking about trust? Why was that the first thing that came to mind. Does it reflect something in my life? I think it has to do something with my life.
