My blog used to be called "the tomboy" when I first started out. I didn't like that title much. I always thought a blog's name should say something about the blog itself or the blogger. "the tomboy" was too general. I decided to settle for a title describing my blog. After all, don't most of my posts deal with that? Life as we know it?
I have been considering changing the title again. This thought has been running through my head for a long time now. Loads of ideas popped into my head but none of them really pleased me enough. My mind has even thought of the weirdest possibilities that make me think to myself "yeha right". I mean, imagine! "Dementia of the 5th dimension"!!! What sort of crap is that????
I did come up with a few good ones also. But I just never got around to change the title. So it remains the same. In fact, I have got plenty of brilliant ideas. But I still can't make that change! Its way too hard. This is my blog! And people know it the way it is! I've been wanting to change my template but haven't. Its still the same blue. Its hard to change something that you are so used to. (hey! the previous 2 sentences rhymed! :P) Even though I think the template is pretty ordinary and has nothing unique, I've gotten too used to it and am reluctant to make a change.
Why is it so hard to make changes? Or when things do change, why is it so hard to accept those changes? After all, aren't we all the people we are today because of all the changes that have accumulated over the years? I most certainly am not the way I was when I was a 6-year old. I've totally changed! I mean, I'm not even the way I used to be in my final year of school! University and hostel life have totally changed me! I did protest a bit when I realised I was changing, that my lifestyle was changing, but later I just accepted things the way they were. Most worked pretty well for me and some not so well. But I'm fine, aren't I? Then why can't we (or should I just say "I") be brave enough to take a chance and try to make that change? Why cling on to old tradition when we can create a new (and perhaps better) one? I know nobody said it would turn out to be better. But you'll never know unless you take a chance. Then why not?
Life will continue to change. I will graduate, complete my Ph.D, find a job and do the best I can. Places and faces will change. I know thats whats written in my future. In everyone's future for that matter. I guess the best way to go on is to try to judge whether the change will seriously affect the people around you or yourself in a negative manner. If it will and there is something you can do to stop it, then go ahead. Nobody will think any less of you for not making the change. If not sure what will happen if the change is made, then maybe just take a plunge and find out! Be adventurous! (easier said than done... *sigh*... I reeeeeeally wish I was capable of practising what I preach :| )
You know what.... maybe "Dementia of the 5th dimension" is not such a bad idea after all! For a change, it will accurately and specifically describe the blogger! :P :P ;)
