March Font Crushes

marchfontcrushes1

I’m starting a monthly round-up of my current favorite fonts! Right now, I’m big on handmade brush fonts and I chalk it up to my complete lack of talent in calligraphy and lettering (it’s not like I’ve tried to learn, but I just know it’s going to be pointless or take too much time).

Hopefully, we’ll help each other discover new fonts with each round-up!

Fresh New Face

Hiiiiiii!

I figured it was high time to get rid of my old theme (Striking, un-responsive) and put together something more… 2015 (though the watercolor bouquet in the header bothers me a little because it’s so 2014 wedding invitation).

I’ll also be undergoing a long overdue blog overhaul. Can you believe Ditz Revolution has been around since 2006?! I’m reluctant to delete old entries because I like how I can easily access a good chunk of the last nine years, but I’m definitely going to privatize a bunch of crap that I find irrelevant. I was going through my drafts the other day and saw I had stuff typed up from 2008 that I never got around to publishing! That turned out to be a good thing because they were supes embarrassing.

It still needs a lot of tweaking and fixing, which I’ll get to this weekend. I can’t wait to breathe new life into this dumb old blog!

Food Diary: What I Ate Wednesdays // 11

I’m bringing back What I Ate Wednesdays! I’ve always enjoyed documenting my meals via WIAW and I don’t know why I stopped. Most people probably won’t/don’t care, but I do and that’s all that matters!

BREAKFAST:

Salted almonds and seedless grapes. I never have time to eat in the mornings before leaving for work so I usually just grab whatever’s at home and wait until I get to the office to have breakfast. I actually end up having brunch most days.

5 “Bad Habits” I’ve Left Behind

I had a very shallow epiphany last Saturday night: I was sitting in the shadows at TxF, hoping no one would bother me because I just wanted to drink in silence. I opened a fresh pack of cigarettes and realized that I no longer smacked the pack upside down to, well, pack the tobacco— a habit I’ve had since I bought my very first pack of cigarettes over a decade ago. Friends and I even had dumb packing contests!

(I know, I know: smoking is The One Bad Habit I should leave behind. I eventually will.)

It’s silly, but I felt a little more grown-up realizing I had left behind a habit of my youth. This led me to think of other “bad habits” that I’ve dumped.
