undo

now that i've finally managed to figure out how this thing works, i constantly find myself editing my posts. i shave words here and there. i delete lines, sometimes whole paragraphs altogether. i rephrase. i change punctuations. i enlarge pictures, then reduce its size again. but when i press "view post", i would read it like an editor would, wondering how each line can sound better with another round of rewrite.


soon enough i realized i should put a stop to this editing compulsion (ok, editing obsession). my posts will never look perfect, as far as this perfectionist is concerned. 


and so, to celebrate the end of this madness, i present this-- a bare, unexciting, utterly imperfect post. and i think i like it.
