Sure you’ll make a lot of money, but you’ll never make time

24 Apr

I’m falling in love with this polaroid blog by Jen. My gigantic polaroid camera has been sitting on the closet shelf for at least two years now, but I’m tempted to pull it down, purchase a ton of (sadly expensive) film, and attempt to emulate this lovely polaroid blogger.

In other news, it’s that time of year: spring cleaning time and moving time. I’m wrapping up everything here in London and getting ready to move back to Toronto for the summer. Though I’m having fun getting rid of unwanted junk and organizing what’s left, (streamlining my cluttered life is my new love), I’m not looking forward to saying goodbye to my awesome London crew. With under a week left, I’m balancing my final exam with a flurry of fun activities to make the best of these last few Alumgin days. These will include movie adventures, boat racing, sushi, and the final shitshow that will be May 1st. So keep an eye out for some good old photoblogging, (unfortunately, sans polaroid camera).


Maybe I should just change my style

As the suburb-queen photo blog reached its second birthday, I decided to place a counter on the main page to see if anyone was actually looking at this stuff. Within a week of doing so, I was surprised to find that people are in fact looking! A nice little handful of people from all over the place. I’d like to give a shout out to my German audience – keeping it real in Duetschland!

Anyhow, after the initial excitement wore off, I became a little bit embarrassed. All I have to offer here is a collection of photos that mostly feature drunk people, becoming more drunk, with a few captions describing the drunkenness in words. This includes, of course, a smattering of my daily adventures, all wrapped up in one cruddy attempt at html tables. Now that’s embarrassing.

It’s for this reason that I’ll be working on a few changes and additions to the site. This blog is one of them, a chance to write a bit on what’s going on in my life. I’m also going to redesign the rest of the site using some new code that will be outside of my comfort zone. CSS? XHTML? I don’t even know what the crap that is, which is probably why this site looks like crap anyway. That will change soon. I also have a few more changes up my sleeve, changes that I’ll write about in more detail at a later date. Until then, keep an eye on the site!
