Along with getting my absentee ballot and organizing my closet, finding a new blog template has been on my to-do list. I think it's more my style, but I will probably be tweaking things over the next few weeks. Any suggestions are welcome.
I honestly do not know how many people read this blog or come to the actual site as opposed to reading this on their feeds (which is how I stalk blogs). But I figured it was time to update the look of this page for myself. It is like those times when you change out of your pajamas into real clothes even though you probably will not see anyone that day, because it makes you feel better to be put together.
Changing my layout made me think about this blog generally. As did my friend, Eric D's reflection upon closing his blog. Why do I do this, what is the purpose, how long will this last? This is my 723rd post, and my college blog had 1,240 posts. Writing everyday can sometimes be a hassle and I thought about posting less, but I force myself to do it because I think self-reflection and putting general analysis into writing are good things (even if most of the posts are just about law school and politics). The fact that I can simultaneously update my friends and family across the country, create an archive of my life, and maybe even entertain people sometimes are definite bonuses. I will probably scale back or stop completely when I graduate from law school, but I will see.
[Note to self, these are on my blogging to-do list: Going to see Rainn Wilson (Dwight from the Office), Bad: UCLA football, Good: New UCLA bar, Trips to Little Saigon, or what we call Little Little Saigon, Sarah Palin]
