It's my first post today, and I'd like to gladly tell you that the thoughtBlog is ready to see for the masses! :)
So, what IS this blog, even? I think a lot of you want to see an answer to this of some sorts.
Well, it's a blog about my outlook on the Universe. And, of course, my thoughts in general. It's like an idea/thought/theory journal, only updated irregularly and made wholly public.
So, here's my first thought, but first, a backstory:
See the logo above? Yes, that logo. I got the idea for the blog in school, and drew out the logo on the very same day and the very same lesson. (No idea which one it was, though).
I wanted to scan it.
Then something happened.
The scanner broke.
No matter how much times I reset it, it still failed. And today's desire of mine was to get the blog up and running.
Up until that moment, I was filled with anger and thinking inside the box as the result, which was VERY bad.
Then I stopped for a moment. Stopped my emotions. That was a triumph.
I started thinking outside the box. I thought like: "Hey, I could use my cellphone to get the logo in!"
To make the cellphone steady I used two old VHS tapes. Yes, i'm a retro geek.
Then I made the photo of the logo, connected it to the PC, cropped it, color-corrected it, bordered it and uploaded it.
So, today I learned something.
Now, the question being: Was this one of these lessons life gives you, or was it a challenge given by the Universe to me?
Feel free to comment about it in the comments below.

Now THAT'S what you call thinking outside the box, lol.
Sorry for crushing you with that wall of text, and I hope I see you later on.
As always, constructive criticism please, and feel free to use the comments in any sensible way you might think of.
