I've been tired for no reason for almost two weeks now. Being tired gets... well, tiring. -___-

And I don't even know how long it's been since I updated here or even checked my flist. Looks like it hasn't even happened since 2013. Woops?

I've been doing a lot of ruminating on life and work and... sexuality, but I don't think I'm ready to write it up even if I weren't so tired. I will say, though, that the first two of those topics are a lot easier to deal with than the third one. I know it's not that weird to still be confused when I'm closer to 30 than 20 and have most of the rest of my life figured out, but ugh.

Anyway. I'm sleepy and not productive and felt like crawling over to my CDJ and curling up with my flist. Hi guys, I'm not dead. ♥

query re: oversized display screens

Not an icon post for once, but polling the populace! Dearest fellow icon makers/graphic-makers: have you ever had problems when moving to a new computer with a higher resolution? If yes, did you find a way to fix it?

I used to have a 17.3" screen with 1600x900 resolution, which was perfect. My new laptop is 15.6" and 1920x1080, and while that's crisp and beautiful for gaming, I've found that it makes iconing in Photoshop absolutely impossible because the 100x100 square is now such a teeny teeny tiiiiiny block on my screen that I have to squint to see anything. And simply zooming, of course, makes it blurry.

I've fiddled with the DPI to fix the SUPER TEENY TINY TEXT everywhere, but the image situation is still a problem. For now, I've temporarily switched down to 1600x900 JUST to icon -- with the tradeoff that, though I can now see what I'm doing, I think everything blurs weirdly now, which will probably give me a headache before long. Blergh.

My Les Mis obsession has been rekindled. Ramin Karimloo is amazing.
