Friends and Routizens,

There comes a time in everyone's life when they grow up one way or another and head out on their own. Over my many, many years at EHQ and now Route 50 I've seen it happen to others, and now it's my turn. I started this community when I was no older than 12, and I'm now 19. That's at least a good 7 years of blood and sweat, and it's definitely paid off. The road here has been bumpy, crazy, frustrating, awesome, and scary, and I've loved every minute of it.

Base styles, bleh!

Man, I have such a hard time getting base styles right. It really bugs me. I think I should just give up trying to be lazy with the easy styler, I really need to just spend a good four hours and write my own CSS.

Anyway, how are you all liking the new site? Getting that muscle memory back?

Hey peoples,

I've just finished redesigning the journal page, so I suppose now is a good time to post this. You may have noticed that for a few days my base has been broken.. sorry about that.

I've just realized that over the last few months I've lost my spark. I have become stuck in my ways, in terms of work, education, and in my own personal interests.

For instance, once upon a time I would stay up late thinking and coding and designing. Nowadays I just work mindlessly, go to boring classes, come back home, and vegetate in bed at 9pm.

With regards to Route 50, I've also been somewhat hesitant to work on it since I've gotten this weird idea in my mind that I have to justify it … continue reading

Done been dead

Boys and girls,

I've been pretty dead and gone recently... sorry about that. I don't think anyone's missed me anyway.

Got a job, got an apartment, back in school, so that means... actually it only means good things for Route 50, because I only ever get anything done when I have a million other more important things to do. So yeah.

I've been playing around again with the new site style I made and started to transition to, but then left sitting. For a while I started not liking it, but no… continue reading
