Goodnight, and Thanks For All the Fish

If anyone got the reference from the title, you deserve every happiness in the world. (I also realize it is so long, but as this is a goodnight post rather than a goodbye forever as I venture through the galaxy post, the title shall remain)

Anyways, a few things. First, i’m probably not done messing with my theme and tweaking it so that my readers and I will actually enjoy it. Secondly, I wanted to share the real point of this post.

Which is to tell you the purpose of renaming my blog. It used to be “This Is A Blog” for all you newbies. And that worked, obviously. But I changed it to something more meaningful. Yin & Pepper refers to the imbalance in my life right now. Yin & Yang and Salt and Pepper perfectly fit together. They are pairs. But when you separate them and attempt to mash them with something else, there can be chaos. Which is what is happening with my mind. As I get closer and closer to college, I get closer and closer to having to decide what I want to do with my life. And it just so happens that my two passions are art and engineering. Art referring to all things artistic, literary and otherwise meaningful. Engineering meaning all things robotics, existentialist, and ingenious. And it’s hard. It’s hard to mash these two loves together, because I don’t want one without the other. Both of them make me so very happy, and yet it causes such inner chaos. Perhaps that’s why I chose Yin & Pepper. Yin & Pepper are both the dark side of their counterparts. Without their partners, they are in darkness. But until I figure out how to balance myself once and for all, I shall remain in this over dramatic state of inner turmoil.

Anywho, i’m off to read Brave New World and build a robot.

When Boredom Comes, Knit Space Animals

So, I started a new blog post, but then I got bored with it. This is my second attempt. As if being sick wasn’t enough, my mind just had to go and throw writer’s block on it. Right now I’m waiting for my sister to bring me a pile of bacon from the kitchen. Granted, it’ll probably take a year off of my lifespan, but for the sake of meat, I’m willing to take that risk. Anyways, I’ll go for a run later. The stupid YMCA called me yesterday and was all “Blurble durble da pool heater iz nawt workin LOLZZ we are totes dumb HEHEHHEHE Bai.” And I was like, “EFFF YUUUUUU.” So now I have to go a week without swimming, and I’ll probably get fat and lazy in the meantime. The only form of exercise I have now is running, which in my opinion is the worst form EVER. Now, if you can run and not die, unlike me, great for you! But if you’re like me, running is worse than putting lemon juice on a paper cut. Ouch. That pained me when I wrote that. That was probably an exaggeration, but I’ll leave it. But the whole point of this was to write something and tell you what I was doing… Oh yeah! Ok, back to the bacon. My sister is making me craploads of bacon, and in return I am knitting her a manatee. Kinda like this one.

Cute right? I think it’s friggin adorable. Anyways, I’d say it’s worth a plate of bacon.

In addition to this, I will be knitting myself a fox, and my friend Kaysee a cat. I feel like that sentence was written incorrectly and that it portrays the idea that my friend Kaysee is a cat. If you had any confusion, what I actually meant was that I will knit Kaysee a cat. They’re going to be really freakin cute. And they shall be our good luck charms for swim team! Or… just knitted animals. Either way, they’re coming to swim team with us. This has been decided. And on top of all that, they’ll have astronaut helmets on! They’ll be super cute. Kaysee and I are fairly obsessed with space, if you haven’t noticed. I can’t remember how it got to that point, but I’m fairly positive Douglas Adams had something to do with it. But anyways, they’ll probably look something like this:

Just kidding. They’ll probably look like this:

But whatever the outcome, my Thanksgiving break will now be composed of running and knitting. And attempting to put music on my iPod. By the way, if you get the chance, don’t buy apple products. They suck.

Also, I’m unsure why this has two different font sizes. It bothered me so much that I had to write a footnote.
