- What I did for New Year's Eve / the New Year
- accepted a quarter of a chocolate cake
- ate baked bananas
- watched fake pirates
- ate fruitcake
- ate with family
- ate a lot of food
- but did not eat long noodles, which are symbolic of having a long life
The important thing, though: I wish you all a happy New Year. Make it a good one.

The problem with updating a home page as a way to inform people of updates is that you have to decide which updates are notable and which are not. And if your updates are just a minor bit of text, or a background change, or a shift in your font size from 12 pixels to 12.5 pixels, then it's easy to pick and choose from the lineup. But then where does the cut stop? What if you edited a dated ten-year-old dinosaur webpage to reflect that pterodactyls aren't dinosaurs? Is that important? How many times can I fit "up" or "date" into this update without confusing myself? Why do I have more fun writing updates than writing a nice little poem that's up-to-date? Why is this site so meta? These are the questions that keep me up at night.
So okay, this home page is a irregular blog/thought dump now, as well as an update bin. Because even if this is just whispering into the void, it might as well be (semi) quality whispering instead of updates on dates of dates.

Beginning slow rearranging of content because the current organization actually doesn't make a lot of sense to me anymore.

I take around 7257600 breaths in a year. Or something like that.

I now have time to update this site! So I'm doing that, semi-productively, and digging up some old frustrating pieces of writing that I look upon with both amusement and pride. And a dash of disgust—the kind you get from watching slugs grind down your youngest, tenderest seedlings, leaving slime trails all over the walkway after a rainshower. Read this stuff under Words. Laugh at it if you'd like. Lingering slugs, after all, won't do much to defend it.

It's been a long time since I've added anything. But a major purpose of this site was to be creative, so there is now a mini-section for scraps and junk that may someday be useful under Coding. I had way too much fun with that CSS animation. Breathe in time with it. Take the circle and add more spinning circles for a disco ball. Base a creepypasta on the soul of its pale yellow glow.

Added my book lists under Words. If you've got any reading suggestions, the cbox is open for use.

I've linked my first attempt at making a website, 2014/2015-ish, under Coding!

New year, new site design! The former one felt a little clunky, and I wanted to make something with circles, so here's this. It's far different from my original idea, but I like it. I will be linking old content and new materials slowly.
