The Month That Was: April 2016
In April 2016, I continued study with my second class at Uni, practiced website design and have still not finished the kitchen.
I didn’t finish the kitchen renovation, it has taken waaaaaay longer than planned (how is it three months already??) I am confident that I WILL finish it in May.
- Continued study with my second class, Concepts and Narratives
- Got a 82, in my first assessment, it’s a High Distinction (HD), but hoping to do better next time
- Practiced website design again and really enjoyed it
- Have not finished the kitchen… I just have ONE MORE coat of gloss and I am done, now the weather has been getting cooler…
- Purchased some cute quilt covers
- No soda, 30% towards my starting goal weight
New Theme (Orca)
Hello again! I recently took my site offline for a few days while I changed the theme and made changes to many of the pages throughout the site.
The theme is awesome. It is called Orca, created by EckoThemes and purchased via Themeforest. I love that it is very spacious and ‘clean lined’. I wanted a design that was new, fresh and squeaky clean. I had intended to create a theme of my own the next time I wanted a change… maybe after this one.
New Project + Design Update
I have decided that I am going to work on an online project that I have thought about for years. At the moment I am not going to give a lot of details away, other then it is community based and hopes to help some people, well website owners. It’s not hosting related, just something else. I am interested in finding people that might be able to give opinions on various things, so if you are please let me know. Why am I doing this? Well, I thought it might be a good idea to try and focus on something, something that can be positive.
I have been playing with the design I made in my previous post and made some changes. Mainly to the CSS and changed the header image to something very simple. I have a lot of fun playing with the colours in the CSS. Next time I want to make more changes to it, add some icons and polish it up a bit more (the sidebar menu links need to be changed, I find them annoying. ). So far I have been enjoying working on the design.
I have also been a bit slack on my other blog Moon, but hopefully will catch up on it soon.
Blog shuffling again
So I decided to shuffle things around again and now have my blog back on a self-hosted WordPress and plan on using it as a personal blog, as it has been for a long time. I was rather inspired by Liz and how honest her blog is and thought that I should really do that too. I also decided to restore all of my old blog posts (from 2003 onwards). Many of these older entries are pretty crazy, but they are mine and I shouldn’t hide from them, at least I know I have grown as a person (… hopefully).
Because I haven’t designed a website for a long time (let alone a WordPress theme) I decided to purchase one. So I brought Keilir which I think is rather awesome and should work well until I decide to make my own theme again.
I have kept the previous posts I was making of daily inspiration/creative things and moved those to moon.nu which I will still continue to work on.
There hasn’t been a lot going on at the moment, or rather nothing exciting. I am trying to deal with a lot of mental health issues, that I might address later.
I have missed a few posts this week. x.x I will make up for it soon (starting monday) that is a promise.
In the mean time, you can follow me on Twitter, deviantART, Tumblr, Pinterest and Flickr.
