Templates, Television, and Rain

This was going to be just a photo blog... but I don't roll that way. Well, really I'm too lazy to make two different posts. Pictures will be at the bottom if you're too lazy to read.


I want to change the background/template of my blog, but all the ones I've found so far are bland or too busy or just not me. I like the clean, streamlined look, but I want more color. Or I want to put pictures I've taken in the header. I should really learn how to do this myself because I'd be great at making my own. Does anyone know how to do this or where to find someone to teach me?

ETA: I've been searching for blog templates and these are my favorites.

I've decided that I don't like the TV. I like watching specific shows (Criminal Minds, Glee, Chelsea Lately, and The Colbert Report because you wanted to know what I watch) but since I've been home I've realized that my family uses the TV as a babysitter of sorts. My mom watches TV all day. Well, she does other things like cook and clean and exercise, but when she's not busy, she's sitting in front of the TV. All day. And it doesn't matter that she's seen the same episode of Two and a Half Men 987 times, she watches it anyway. It annoys me because it seems like she's just watching TV because she needs the background noise, and I've decided that I can't stand background noise. Especially in the morning. I want the solitude so I could definitely live without television.


On the Sims 3, if your Sim stays inside their house for too long they can get the "stir crazy" moodlet. I was going super duper stir crazy, but it was raining. When it stopped, I walked around our house and took pictures of the rain-soaked greenery. Enjoy!

This one is my favorite. :)

Happy Thursday!


  1. You took those pictures? Those are all really good....

    And, if I had to pick one of those four templates, I'd go with the second to last one or the last one. I don't really like the first two. :/

  2. Why don't you like the awesome gun? It's cute.

  3. Great photos!

    For some reason, I find Wordpress themes easier for me to manipulate than Blogger templates. I'm guessing it's because I'm so used to wordpress. If you want my opinion though, I really like the Spectrum template! :-)

    As for television, I think I can live without the TV, now that everything is on the Internet.

    P.S. Since there was no way I can post my name and URL, I commented using my LJ username. (This is Kristine from

  4. Kristine! I creeped on you and you creeped back!

  5. Love the pictures! And I love how you referenced 'Sims 3', A+ for that! haha. And I'm the same way with TV - I'll have certain things I really like to watch, but my parents seem glued to it!

    By the way, I'm trying to send out the pairings for the Postcard Project going on at my blog but noticed I don't have your address - if you don't mind e-mailing that to me, that'd be amazing! Hope you have a great weekend :)

  6. Love the last picture! :) And I hate super busy layouts. They drive me crazy. Simplicity is always best I think.

  7. for starters, you can use a program like Photoshop to make a layout (header / banner image) with some of your photographs. then you can just adapt the coding from another layout (maybe one of the ones you have above) to go along with your banner. if you play around with the html and css, you'll eventually figure everything out and have lots of fun doing your own designs :)

    hope that wasn't too much!
