Okay, so I was viewing this topic
and found a link to this news topic
of old. Having remembered replying to that review topic, I opened it up to relive some of the nostalgia of olden days. I saw a few posts by older members who are no longer so active, as well as some others who've definitely changed a bit. Then I found my own post. It was obviously a winter topic because I was in one of my "post in pink" crazes that I went into for a couple of months each year.Okay, so the color is actually magenta, and not pink. Whatever, they're pretty close.
Well, the magenta severely clashes with the current brown theme of my avatar and sig right now. Truly horrible. It might've been okay with the usual green avatar or multicolored sigs of my past, but brown? Nope. Worst, even the context of my post is chippier than usual. It's like I'm trying to make myself look like a stereotypical female. I don't know if I was mocking the stereotype (because, after all, it was an article on Clickits and Bionicle) or if I was being genuine there.
Whatever it was, it is one of those posts that I find truly embarrassing later on.
But that's okay, because I have those quite often. (Every other blog entry could even count.) And some good came out of posting in magenta. For one thing, it helped me memorize the tags for colors, which led to me memorizing the tags for URLs, images, fonts, sizes, bold, italic, underline, and other formatting options. Even though the newer formats are a bit more complex, the older ones still work. (I should know, typed in a few already with this blog, and they're working. I hope.
) Plus, my crazy colored text led to more than a few gender confusions... although this new evidence may bring into the fact that the actual content of my posts was no better.
Nope, I'm male and all that jazz (the new gender statuses cannot lie, right?) I still like the color magenta
, and think it's a much better color to write in rather than stuff like pink
, or gold
, because it is dark enough to read but bright enough to really stand out. Am I going to go on posting sprees with that color? Only when I change the color scheme in my sig and avatar to something else.
In other news, I am suffering from writers block, both in fan fiction and English essays on the 1950s.
I'm going to try to put something together for my newest epic that started and then faltered, but no promises. After all, I have one more midterm next week, and then I get sucked into finals. Goodie. This school stuff never ends, does it?
On another note, I had to write this entire entry up twice when the Internet crashed when I was about to post it. You'll be sure I'll make a copy in Word first this time, as I will not write it a third time.
