This is much better.
Just a little computer problem over here. It is frustrating, because I wrote a blog post earlier today. I think I even ended it with a little self-congratulation on not indulging in Non-Sequitur Thursday. It was when I began to type it into WordPress that the trouble started.
I was, as usual these days, on our little Acer Netbook, a handy device given to us by my dear sister, Victoria. It is a well-known fact that I am not technologically inclined and any device invented in this century mystifies me. In other words, I don’t know what I did, but I messed it up. The Acer is still working fine, but my WordPress account is suddenly in teeny-weeny, itty-bitty, minute, miniscule (I’m doing this without a thesaurus by the way) printing. I can’t even read it properly with my glasses off (I am extremely near-sighted: me with my glasses off is the same as a normal person with a magnifying glass, as long as I hold whatever I’m looking at close enough) (that may be the only time ever that you see the phrase “the same as a normal person” referring to me).
Where was I?
Well, where I AM is upstairs on my desktop, which is for a change and perhaps only for the moment, behaving itself. Why am I not finishing typing in what I started downstairs? You know, that is a very good question.
The fact is, I am having a bit of a mental/emotional/physical problem lately. I don’t mean to complain about my ills (I know, I know, for not meaning to I do an awful lot of it), but I am having the damnedest time DOING anything. Even taking a shower required great effort and self-motivation. Laugh, point and judge all you want. The fact is, as soon as I said to myself, “Oh just have a Non-Sequitur Thursday and be done with it,” I felt a great lightening of spirit.
I’ll use that other post tomorrow, when I bet Steven will have figured out how to fix my WordPress. Or perhaps this desktop will continue to behave. I do love a full-size keyboard. If only I could think of a snappy headline for today’s post, my life would be perfect.
Sounds like you accidentally took the zoom level way out. Most browsers define the shortcut for this as pressing Control and either using the mouse wheel or pressing – or + keys. Most browsers also have the option to set the zoom in a one-click dropdown menu (for Chrome and Edge, the menu is in the top-right of the window below the “x” for closing the window).
Sorry to hear of your motivational difficulties; sounds familiarly like depression. Here’s hoping it gets better for you.
Thank you, thank you! I can read my WordPress again! Regarding the other, I do struggle with depression. I know some things to make it better, but now I must work up the motivation to implement them. Being able to read my computer again certainly helps!
