Scoot on ~ the trouble of theme choosing

SIDE NOTE: this post was meant to be published last night, buuuut our friend the internet did not allow for such. Sorry, I’ll just be posting twice today! X

The theme on my blog is aptly named TwentyThirteen. And being the person that I am, today, I sat down and said to myself, “Come now, whatever happened to leaving TwentyThirteen in 2013?” So, as the average human being would do, I went to the mirror and poked the reflection for 13 minutes – oh, yes, I now have a watch- and then I decided to browse through some new themes.

Now, because I’m me  (otherwise known as ridiculously indecisive and unable to be fast about it) I felt really intimidated by all of the themes and the variety posed by them all. I guess the logistics were simple: choose a new theme that’s good for mostly text posts and is interesting enough to look at. 

What actually happened was 21 minutes of scrolling and anxiety.

So, let me introduce you to a very small selection of the WordPress themes that I considered, and the extreme in-my-head conversation that accompanied them.

  • TwentyFourteen

twentyfourteen-home

Hey, seeing that that’s next year and my current theme corresponds with the year, I should probably carry on with that. Oh. Ohhh. This is pretty. Look how those photos show up. Pretty. Featured images really shine in this theme.‘ Hey, that would work…if I used featured images. -_- Okay, so this one is out. Bummer.

  • Shine On

Shine On

OWL! I like owls! MM, this looks cool. Looks like it could be used for writing. Mm, sounds good. Oh, what’s Harry’s owl’s name? Headwig! Why isn’t this theme called Headwig? Oh well, you can’t have everything. It’s pretty bright, it could possibly be exciting! Megh. Megh megh megh. No, not this one.

  • Writr

Home Page

A HOT CUP OF TEA! I do like this! still, this isn’t a photo blog…and there are these two columns that kinda scare me…but the colours are pretty? Yeah no this isn’t going to work.

  • EVERY SINGLE THEME

Achahacahahahah hehe sleepy time 😀 oh is that a goat? Hmm what’s on tumblr? THIS CRAPPY INTERNET CONNECTION IS KILLING ALL VIBES THAT I HAVE EVER HAD.

And this is the reason my theme is still TwentyThirteen.

I KNOW WHO YOU ARE

So that’s different. I know who you are. Lies, I really don’t. But I know somethings that I know about you. So today, there’s no Scoot On, there’s just Scoot. And also the fact that I have a couple things to say, again.

So first off I wanted to let you all know that there is a male I have a fondness towards, and he’s lovely. And I have this super huge urge to gush and just tell how lovely and wonderful he is and how he makes me all butterflies (well he doesn’t make butterflies for me but he gives me butterflies-oh you get the point) and all of the sort, but he’s probably gonna be one of you who reads this. Cue the embarrassment.

Secondly, I wanted to tell you that I genuinely appreciate you. If you’re reading this, I do. I’ve been on this blog for about 2 and a half weeks and the response I’ve gotten has been tremendous. I mean, it’s not like I have 80 new followers every time I come on here, but I do have 10 of them. 10 whom I love dearly and 10 who I wish I could bake cookies for. I make quite crappy cookies though, so I guess most of you guys would have to settle for hugs. Sorry.

Third, I really love the internet. I guess I’ve always been a loud person but the internet is amazing. I’ve never had such a space to just share free thinking and share general musings. I guess I thought that just being me was saying enough-which it is, but you know those things that just make you cringe, or grin uncontrollably? The internet is where I found those things, and the internet is where I talk about those things. So thanks, internet. And to all the strange and beautiful and lovely people who make it happen.

Four: The Great Gatsby is brilliant. I read it and I sure as hell wanted to go and find F. Scott Fitzgerald himself and kiss him. Slight problem seeing that he’s been dead since 1940. That book though, its just ah no words amazing brilliance gaaah. (That is how NOT to phrase a sentence, by the way.)

THE GREAT GATSBY QUOTES SPAM

  • “I wasn’t actually in love, but I felt a sort of tender curiosity.” 
  • “Well, there I was, way off my ambitions, getting deeper in love every minute, and all of a sudden I didn’t care.”
  • “I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. And it’s these things I’d believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn’t all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything.”

 

I love each and every one of you people as if you were my Siamese twin. That’s a lot of love, I’ll have you know. I love you people, and I thank you for being alive. Keep reading, and keep telling people to read 😀 but only if you want to, of course 

All my love all the time
