Announcement Update

Dear Readers,

I hope this post finds you well. Finals are done, and the semester has ended. As a result I will be working on the site less infrequently. I figure this transition period would be a good time to let everyone know what I am doing with the site.

As always, there has been background work for the website going on. I eventually want to move this site off of Blogger, and onto my own server. I also want to make the site look distinctly not like a cookie-cutter Blogger template as much possible. In the process of doing this, I have been learning a lot about web design outside of my primitive knowledge of HTML.This usually includes banging on the keyboard over the frustration of getting a mouse-over drop down menu to work.

If I could get published, this is how the cover of
the book would look like when you hold it open.
Second, about a few months ago I lost the sixteen pages, including the outline I had written, for Motherfucker Why You Reading; the "book" I would eventually like to give out for free through the website. It looks like that when I return home, I will be able to restore the hard drive with the documents I have lost. So instead of jumping right back into writing MFWYR I have decided to work on a project, which I want to finish writing during my six week break. This will be an "alternative" college guide, which just like MFWYR, will be released for free through Always Avoid Alliteration. I am thinking about having the download happen through an online store where if you want to, you can download the guide for $0.00 . More information will follow as the project reaches it's conclusion.

Other than that, I am still trying to write interesting articles that I know readers will enjoy. As far as I can tell, there is not much in common between the top read articles (more on this in a few months).

Until then, expect a new update tomorrow.

Germany's Cool, When It Isn't Crap

I have dragged my feet for a while before showing you this article, because... well of the host site. Some time ago I was instructed to go to a website, and I misheard the name as being . A common mistake. What I found instead of what I was looking for was some German guy's website devoted to crappy things, and features RandomFarts one of which plays when you access each page on the site. ಠ_ಠ

What I did find was Germany's Cool When it's Not Crap which lists the pros and cons of living in Germany. For a page from a website that has not left the year 1995, I actually think these things hold true today.
