return to the left

So, as you know, if you've paid attention, I have never gotten my head around loving Blogger like I loved tumblr.

I much preferred the look of my old tumblr, but all my new blog friends were hanging out on blogger, so I made the switch. I feel a bit like I've progressed from being a penguin in the swimming class up to being a dolphin. When I'm ready to take it to the next level, and swim underwater for a whole length, I'll join the sharks and migrate to wordpress and have this designed properly - with a picture at the top and everything. 

In the meantime, I have battled with colours, fonts and layout. 
I chose a centered text since a lot of my sentences were short, and it felt as if the blog might be left-heavy. Somehow though, regardless of what blogger promises me it'll look like in the preview, it generally fucks up the centering, and all my time spent making sure the word breaks are in the right place, even sometimes changing a word to make it fit, is pointless.

It's been frustrating me.

I didn't realise it had been frustrating you...until I got this:

It is really hard visually to read something that is all centered.  AHHHHHHHHHH.


Hope all is well.

There is an XO after it, so I took it well. And was pleased that her eyes weren't bleeding, which would have been worse, I suppose. 

So, I have reverted to real type. And in an effort to make Nerdgirl's eyes feel better - some photo's I've saved for a rainy day. Except it is not raining, so I'll call them 'a motley collection of photos I've saved to show you when your eyes are hurting because of me' or 'AMCPISSYWYEHBM' for short...

I hope that makes things better.
