Things I found in the internet and what I make of them

New theme up and running! Isn’t it pretty? I do love clean, minimal designs. You know what else I love? Just how much new information I can glean just by using my fingertips. Hello, internet! In this day and age, what are we if we don’t use it. Amiright?

I’ve been doing some (social? personal?) experiments here and there. Not to say that I’ve been throwing myself at those with passion that would rival that of Shah Jahan when he had the Taj Mahal built, but things have definitely improved in the forefront. Am I better person for it? I can’t say. It’s too early to tell. I’m just happy with these baby steps I’m taking. Equally happy with the small wins.

I took a leave from work for the rest of the week. And what will I be doing? A true lady never reveals her secrets, even if secrets sometimes come in the form of vodka and butterscotch flavored beer and good company — OOPS.
