Hey guys! I am going away until the end of the month for a study abroad class. I’ll be in Turkey and Spain for two weeks. I would put stuff in my queue to make up for it, but I don’t really have many ideas. But there is two years worth of stuff in this blog, so please go through it all at your leisure. I hope you find awesome stuff, and to anyone new who comes along as well, posts that you like. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to take care of the 50 things to do that I left until the last minute.
I can see the gifs and photos I post again! You don’t have to squint to read my minscule text posts!
I needed to revamp the look of the blog. I have always been going for a nice, big image to put in the back, but I noticed I was letting the content suffer along the way. Anyhow, a blog I recently followed had the same look, and I liked it. I still need to tweek it, but there is a lot less stuff assaulting your eyes at once and you can actually focus.
As for the change of the title header of my blog. I was attempting to change the URL, but what I wanted was taken, but zentaku can be somewhat simple to type anyway, so I will probably keep it. The title is a line that I lifted from a poem, and I think it fits the focus of the blog. While I started out with a singular focus on Zen Buddhism and religion, I started to post geeky stuff and movie reviews. So, with the idea that owls are symbols of wisdom in mind, I sought to make it clear that I am just trying to be as wise and intelligent as I can be given my interests. That’s all. The focus will largely be the same, but I hope my blog will have more character by transforming it the way I did and by adding a bit more personality to it this time around.
This is where my research paper used to be found. If you did not copy it and wanted to read it, send me a message so I can post it again for you.
