Of getting back on the mat and a guide to yoga

Look at the Feb cover page of my fitness journal! It’s not as pretty as the BuJo covers I see on Instagram, but it’s all I can come up with. Haha. Anyhoo, who cares, yeah? I’m happy to say my fitness journal is getting a little action these days because I’ve been regularly practicing yoga again! Yay. I’m back to attending classes at my home studio and I’m over the moon about that. Just look at my face in the photo below.

WSP Make Theme

My favorite free WordPress themes

I am obsessed with my blog. And by that I mean I’m obsessed with its design and layout and I change and tweak my themes all the time. Even when I was still blogging on Blogger, I loved to tweak my blog template. So much that I started a blog about modifying Blogger templates. I haven’t updated that blog in a long time, but I’m still messing around with blog themes.

I only use free themes though because, one, I can’t afford the premium ones, and, two, my preferences change so often that it’s impractical for me to spend on just one theme. I bought a premium theme only once in my entire life – after a whole lot of deliberation, mind you – and I regretted it because I just couldn’t get it to look right. Since then, I’ve stuck to free themes that I modify just a bit.

Out of all the WordPress themes I’ve tried, I found a very select few that I really liked and used for longer than most. I thought I should share them with you!

Of synchronicity and reading goals

Do you believe in synchronicity?

Last Friday I went to the bookstore to see if they had anything by Sylvia Plath because I thought it was time for me to get acquainted with her work. Yeah, I’ve never read Plath, can you believe it??

So I went inside and immediately saw the sale tables. Of course, I headed there because, you know, BOOKS ON SALE, and I browsed for a few minutes. Then at the last table, I absentmindedly grabbed a thick book that was lying on its cover and it turned out to be a sale copy of Sylvia Plath’s The Collected Poems! How awesome, right? That was a really nice surprise from the universe, I swear. Anyway, I’ve decided that this book is going to be my first for the year.

hello 2018

Happy New Year! Here we go again!

The start of a new year always makes me feel hopeful. Hopeful that I’ll have better success with my goals for the year. I’ve long given up on “new year’s resolutions” or, rather, I’ve stopped referring to such things as “resolutions” and just think of them as things I want to do or focus on for the year. I guess it helps take the pressure and stress of it all. Hah.

I basically have the same things on my lists every year because, you know, these are some things I want to keep doing. That’s also one of the reasons why I don’t call them resolutions. They’re really nothing new or revolutionary. The ones that are new or different are more like small personal projects for my mind and spirit and sanity. LOL.
