100th post!

Ho ho, in other words it's been about 100 days since I started this blog!

I really have to thank all you guys, even you who haven't started following my blog yet. I started this blog in order to share my thoughts on things with people and maybe to introduce you to some really awesome stuff you might not have found otherwise. However, in writing these posts I've had to ponder how to present my thoughts in the best manner to an audience, much different from thinking them to oneself, and in the process I've had to inspect those thoughts. Reading your comments in response to my posts and reading your blog posts on things that I have opinions on, at times I've spotted the faults in my own arguments and had to re-analyze why I came to think a certain way and not another, determine whether I oughtn't to change my opinions. This introspection helps me to grow and I think it's something people neglect to do on a regular basis. Sure, you shouldn't bend and twist in the winds of outside pressures on what to think, what to believe, what to feel, but never reconsidering something after accepting it the first time, or even the second time, is no way to live.

Being sure and being right are not the same. Don't forget that.

I like to say that I view the world in a manner "neither wide-eyed nor narrow-minded" and I think this is a good and balanced path to walk.

I wouldn't be who I am right now, this very moment, without mentally jousting with myself and with you guys, though you might not have realized this at the time haha.

Thank you. (^____^)

This pun is just for you guys.
P.S. Also, I altered the blog layout a little bit.
