minor updates, but updates nonetheless

I don’t think I’m a particularly hard worker (note to future employers: just kidding! hahahaha!), but I have been working pretty hard at my current job for almost a year now. One of the consequences of that is that when I do have a day off and really, nothing at all to da — like, say, today — I tend to get a little bit bored and antsy. And so, after cleaning the bathroom, hanging up new box shelves, looking at sofas, going for a run, and reading my Nixon book, I decided it was time to do some fixing up of the old blog.

However, the changes I made were subtle. So subtle, I’m probably going to have to draw your attention to them.

I updated my curriculum vitae and publication pages, which were a year out of date. I upgraded the version of WordPress I’m running. I added several new sidebar items. I also decided to change the way I do my movie reviews. For a long time, I was posting them in the sidebar. Lately, I’ve been posting them on the main blog, mixed in with other random details, and only posting the star ratings in the sidebar. I still kind of like the idea, but I’m finding it hard sometimes to find anything interesting to say, or the time to write something longish for every movie. Plus, I actually kind of enjoy writing very concise reviews. So I think I’ll be going back to the sidebar for my short reviews, and posting the occasional long review as a blog article.

This is probably also a good time to remind anyone who cares that you can see reviews of every movie I’ve seen for the past 2 years plus, organized by date, title or rating, right here.
