To make things entirely clear

I won't be posting here any more, guys. A lot of people seem to be expecting further posts on this blog. People have asked me for reasons, so here I go. (wooo! justifying my actions!)

a)  This post kind of explains it. In short, I outgrew the themes of this blog in terms of post themes and title and dividing myself into parts. My writing felt forced at times, at least to me, and I don't want that. I need all of the Gabis, the facets of my personality, to work together and not to be labelled as separate.

b) I need to improve my writing. The quality of my writing kind of plateaued, and writing entire posts full of disconnected (coughADHDGabicough) dialogue didn't really help me get better. My writing started being primarily to entertain readers, and only secondarily as a self-improvement kind of thing. I want to be able to entertain readers AND improve my writing.

c) I know that I could just change my title and background, but I want a blank slate to work with.

The reasons that this blog is still in existence include wanting my readers to migrate to the new one, my harbouring of sentimental feelings towards inanimate objects (or binary code), and really liking the new URL the random word generator gave me.

TL;DR? I've moved to this blog. I won't be posting here any more. Capeesh?

I used a bold, large font. This means business.

This is what I do instead of studying for my computer science exam.

I have a new blog.

Instead of studying feverishly for my computer science exam  The Key to My Future Success which is what I should really be doing, I spent an hour writing a mediocre post and another hour playing with the settings.

Enjoy. : D

Prepare to see the font being changed a lot. I have font-related obsessive compulsive tendencies. (Never ever use Papyrus or Comic Sans, please?)

Choosing titles is hard. Like, I'd have another blog already if I could just pick a title. I'm tempted to cave and use something stupid, but even if the blog name is changeable the url wouldn't be. I'm stuck.
How do you name things?
