hello, my darlings! once again i wonder how life has it’s little way of hindering your plans and intentions. i never intended to be absent from blogging or the site for the past few months, but like i said life has it’s own plans!

so much has happened lately! i’ve been so incredibly busy with college and work, i don’t even know where to start! in the last blog i had just informed you i had finally found a job as a server after months of being unemployed after getting fired at McDonald’s (best thing that ever happened, lol.) i absolutely hated serving, and i was fortunate enough to get a job with my cousin that is more like a desk job, (which i love, well parts of it anyways.) for a two week period there is was working both part time jobs and going to school full time, which was simply horrible! i feel sorry for anyone who has to do something like that all the time, i had no time to sleep or study or to even do homework!

i’ve also had a rocky road going on in the personal relationship department, which for awhile there really got to me, but the fantabulous news is, i have tackled my problems head on! i feel better than i have in over a year! like i’ve mentioned twice already, life, it certainly has it’s way of getting to you! these days, though i’m so much more like i used to be, which is a great thing. i feel like that little chip on my shoulder that everyone seems to get every now and then is simply gone. i’m so much more happy and content with everything.

being happy and content is a tricky feeling though, because if you’re like me you start to wonder how long will it last. how long will it be until you find yourself back in a bad position? don’t you just want to kick those thoughts right out of your head? i know i wish i could.

i have basically decided i pretty much hate college. haha. last semester my grades were not the best, i had more academic type classes then. for the first part of the semester i had all a’s, then i had to start working two jobs while going to school full time for a two week period, and since i had no time to study or do homework i fell way behind and never really caught up, but luckily for me somehow i passed!

this semester my classes are more like electives, including a class on photoshop and wait for it… web design. my teacher for those two classes (the same guy) has no idea what he’s doing. i have to contain myself from being over dramatic about how he ‘teaches’. he will literally sit there in silence for fifteen minutes while reading the book then ‘teach’ us something for five minutes and do it all over again. even the kids in the class who have not used photoshop or have designed a web page can tell he’s got no idea what he’s doing. it’s quite frustrating.

work on the other hand is great! i actually find myself looking forward to work these days! i mean the job isn’t super glamorous or anything, but my co-workers (most of them) are amazing. i have so much fun there sometimes it almost seems criminal.


in website news, i have added a gallery to the site which is where all the retouched photos, desktop wallpapers, and blends will be kept from now on. check it out here! ♥

up all night.

alright, so i’m totally re-doing this blog. i had something completely different wrote, but i found it completely boring and felt bad for anyone that felt the need to read it so this will be take 2!
 
first off, as you might be able to tell i have completely re-coded the site, it took me 36 hours. plus the four or five days before that i spent making the new layout, but i feel that it was well worth it, and i do hope you feel the same way! i feel bad for my best friend, lee, who was with me the whole 36 hours, i pretty much forced him to watch the vampire diaries, but don’t let him lie to you… he loves it!
 
it was even his idea to stay up the other night while i coded, i came to a point at about 4am that i decided we should go to bed, and he was like ‘i’m not tired.’, so he watched vampire diaries and i kept coding, until i looked at the clock and it said 7am then i was like ‘we really should at least get a couple hours of sleep.’, and he was like ‘nah, we should just stay up! i’m going to get in the shower.’ so he went and did his thing, and i kept doing mine. then i got in the shower like 45 minutes later, because i had to wait until the water heated back up because he uses up all the hot water, jerk. haha.
 
so about an hour after we each got our respective showers, this dork ends up falling asleep for at least three hours! after his whiny butt wanted to stay up and i wanted to sleep! so after he wakes up he realizes he was supposed to meet our buddy, mike, like half an hour before, then we debated what i was going to do, because i had two other friends trying to get me to hang out with them, and the fact i wasn’t even close to finishing my site at the time, but i ended up being the good friend who takes his car-less, license-less butt to play basketball and then later to hardee’s for food. would you like to know how he repaid me? he disappeared at 1am last night. yeah… sweet, right? i figured he went off to his bed (which is a couch, lmao.) because he had been falling asleep all day, and when i went out to check he had vanished, no doubt getting our friend, justin, to pick him up. lmao.
 
the funny thing is he was basically begging me to write a blog about him, and i guess he won again because this blog is basically about him. that dork.
 
i do have a lot of new content up, i took all the stuff from my other site rock & redbeard and moved it here, because in the next week or so rock & redbeard is becoming my next project, i have an idea that i hope works out, and that everyone thinks is pretty cool. we will have to see how it goes!

honestly, my honesty.

dear friends, so much has gone on since we’ve last talked. including bad news, my laptop charger has croaked and since i lost my job in january, i do not currently have $50 dollars to shell out. so all my updating will have to be done via my old pc. which is why i still haven’t finished one font a nice visitor asked me to do, and there’s been no updates. no matter how slow my pc is i do promise to suffer through it for new content, and as far as the font i was working on if i still have it in my email account i will try to do it from my pc. if not and you see this please email it to me again! and for anyone else who wants fonts done email them to me via the contact form on my fonts page, or simply upload it and leave the link here or on facebook!

anyways, besides the technical complications there has also been personal complications, but everything is pretty much resolved at the moment! also my friend seth opened up a new site for his graphic design! he’s pretty awesome, and we still haven’t finished the sight, but his portfolio is open so check it out! seth @ imagination digital.

in this world we live in things can change by the second. this can be a good thing or a bad thing. we all have days that are just plain bad, but we also all have days that are so good you can’t stop thinking about them years down the road. it’s funny how your life can change in just one second, unknowingly you find yourself standing in front of something so unexpected, which can also be good or bad. you meet new people and though a lot of them will be people you wish you hadn’t met, there will surely be a few people who you will grow close to.

sometimes you might even find yourself falling head over heels for someone special, and the times you spend together will make the worst days good when you recall the memories you made. when you find the person that can make you smile in the worst times, keep them close. never take any time with them for granted, thank whatever mysterious force that brought you two together multiple times a day, happiness will soon follow.

wow, this was a really random blog, i wonder what has me thinking so deeply. haha.

let’s get out of the ‘love is all you need‘ portion of the blog, and into site updates. well, the past week or so has been crazy for me sitewise, i think i’ve put up like 3 new site layouts, and 60+ myspace layouts, a bunch of retouched photos and a handful of photoshop actions, and i still have a bunch more stuff i’d like to create and put up. i’m a busy bee, i guess. i’m also trying to balance work, family, friends, vacation planning, and more.  i would love to thank all of my lovely site go-ers, for commenting the last blog, and for applying to be affiliate, etc. it’s making the update process go smoothly.

liven up your day by clicking the big music link to the right, i’ve got some of my favorite songs of the moment on a playlist i would love for you to listen to, i’ve got a bit of everything rap, pop, rock. just give it a try, you might find something you like! (:
