|| Holy crap, am I actually updating two days in a row?! lol.

|| Since it's now fall, and the temperature outside my house has finally dropped below 70, I decided I needed a new layout. I wanted something a little darker for fall/winter. As usual I stuck to something really simple. I kept the layout the same except for adding the colors to the different special fonts and also the links. I really like the kinda monochrome look and then the bright pop of colors.

I also changed my profile code to match my new layout.

Now I won't change anything for another six months, lol.

|| I've been watching all the episodes of Mythbusters and Dirty Jobs they have available on On Demand. I forgot how much I love the Discovery channel. But omg why are there always giant spiders?!?

|| I just got my prompt for the Suits Christmas Fic Exchange. I'm really super excited! Unfortunately now that I have this to work on The Florid Florist might be put on the back burner. I want to do my best and really come up with something good for my Giftee. Plus the deadline is Dec. 4th, which doesn't seem too soon but with my classes and everything I'll already be running low on time.

|| I need to start using Tumblr again. I kinda forgot I even had one, lol.

I like the new color scheme, I agree about the pop of colors, it's nice.

I got my prompt for the exchange too, I'm so excited! Of course now I really need to buckle down and get my suits big bang fic finished soon.

Thanks! I'm not talented enough to make my own layouts from scratch but I always try to edit them to fit my style.

I love fic exchanges. I should really do them more often! I'm always so excited to see what someone writes for me, plus I love how the prompts I get can sometimes push my limits.

My problem is keeping it all secret though, lol. I'm always so excited.

Oh yeah, all I ever do is edit existing layouts to make them more my style. I always say one day I'll figure out how to make them and then I just ... don't. All that coding makes my head hurt.

Haha I'm right there with you on the keeping exchanges secret, I am so very far from patient and I just want to post what I've written as soon as it's done.

Looking forward to seeing what you'll write :D

I used to be really good at HTML and CSS like seven years ago, but then I stopped doing any of that stuff, and most of it changed! I probably could work it all out if I took the time, but I'm really lazy :\

Yes, I always want to post things right away, even waiting for a beta is tough on me xD I'm an instant gratification type person.

I love the new layout!! :D

Good Luck on the Suits Christmas Fic Exchange. Looking forward to see what you write! :D

What's going on w/ suits_rec?

Thank you!

I'm going to rework the layout and change the format of the comm. I'm still going to have theme days but other than that I'm going to let people rec as the want or ask for recs as they want. Meaning they can post themselves. I can't decide if the posts should be moderate or not though, what do you think?

Yay! Follow me~ Even though I never use it xD

Haha! My tumblr went a bit suits crazy-Loll- What's yours. Follow me and I'll add you the first chance I get:D. I am soooo tiiired!

As for the comm...I personally think they should be moderated. I think a poll might also be a good idea on whether they want to rec or want us to rec. We can open it where members can rec but if it doesn't work we can always make it where we rec. What do you think?

Just click the link that says tumblr on the little sidebar and it'll take you there.

I just figured we'd rec ourselves but also open it up to member recs. If that doesn't work I thought we might ask people to sign up to rec. Where they would sign up and then be responsible for recs for a certain week or something.

I followed you on tumblr.I am sure you can figure out which one is me.

I like the idea where we can rec and other people can sign up!

How are you?

A long, long time ago, like 6-7 years, I had another lj and I updated that like every single day. But then I went to college and got lazy xD
