  • I honestly wish I'd had more time to read this summer, wow. I love books, but I feel like every time I get the plan to read one, it ends up falling apart! Same with when I'm at school; academic reading tends to suck the fun out of reading for pleasure.

    The Handmaid's Tale is something I've been meaning to read for a bit...I have the book, and I've seen season one of the show, but I can't find the time to start reading.

    I know I can't be the only one with this problem, oof.

    Never mind the fact that school starts on the 27th and I have summer reading to do I haven't yet touched...

Does anyone else have a really hard time looking at the screen with the new colors? I love everything else about this update, but slightly-darker-than-white-gray on the white is screwing with my eyes so bad.

    • I'm overstepping house lines, forgive me! The colors are in the works as we speak, I promise. We're working on muting the white on this and adding more color themes for personal preference but I've got a few things to do beforehand so bear with me and if the screen is too bright head over to the bug/issues/and changes thread as some wonderful users have posted chrome extensions that help mute it!

hey guys, the light theme also hurts my eyes if i stare at it for extended periods of time, but i have found this great chrome extension, as in i was looking for a way to dark theme my google drive and i'm lazy and i stumbled upon this great thing:: it's just a lay over for every webpage to make it dark and inverse colors when the webpage is naturally a light color. hopefully this helps some people until a dark theme is rolled out??
i have photo-sensitivity issues and this chrome extension is a life saver....
I'll see if I can find some Firefox add-ons for mobile in the meantime ^^ I have to wait for it to download onto my phone again because I primarily use chrome on EVERYTHING but I use Firefox to play YouTube in the background sometimes because in that respect it's more reliable than chrome.

I know it's a work in progress, I was just concerned that my normally relatively good eye sight was suddenly not so great and hurting when I looked at the computer :lol: Everything else looks great though!


@lilJoy
You are awesome, I can look at my screen and read it again! :D Thanks!
