Great news, y’all. I’m moving HOUSE!!!
Well, not my HOUSE, house, but I’m excited to say that (fingers crossed), from the next week or two, I’ll be abandoning Blogger, and switching to WordPress. And not only that, but ‘Confessions of She’ will be no more.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present… Beautiful Disorder.
Why that name you ask? What does it mean? To be frank, I do NOT know where the name came from. I was throwing up a mock-up of my to- be site, and I was idly looking for a nice title… and the phrase just popped up in my head. I like it somewhat. Beautiful Disorder… yeah, that’s me to a point. It’s time I had a layout more reflective of my talents as a designer.
All my blog posts will be moved to that new site, so no worries there. And for those of you that may not know, I’ll redirect the site to the new one when the time is right. So, I think that this might be one of my last posts here on Blogger.
I’m excited. See y’all on the other side!
UPDATE: Sorry bout that folks, due to a hosting error, there won’t be anything on the new site for the meantime, hoefully all would be resolved later in the day, i.e. Tuesday.
I do. I was bored with the old layout, but didnt have the time to change it again, it looked like mess in firefox, which might not be a problem to some, but my reports show more than a third of my traffic is USING firefox. SO yesterday, after battling for almost an hour to find out why it fell it apart (and failing), I gave up and went for a template…
Watch this space. Things are about to change around here..
Yeah, so… I’m at work. On Monday, I felt a bit silly for coming back when I hadn’t gotten called, but hey, I felt guilty that I had run off at a critical time.
I needn’t have bothered. Apparently, a fourth person was hired in my brief absence. But it was still good to be back to my beloved RSS Feeds. I spent about an hour and a half clearing my mails, and going through my feeds. No small task, I tell you.
Tuesday morning, I felt especially good that we had a lot more work on our plates, and even though I wasn’t assigned the job I really wanted (re-design of the company site … I already had great plans for that, sigh), it felt good to be busy. But for some reason, I wasn’t inspired to do it, and at the end of the day I didn’t start it proper till about 2 (3 hours after I was given), when I plugged in my earphones and got at it.
This morning, I’m feeling rather motivated to once again work on my blog’s layout, but I can’t … cos I’m at work. Dammit. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking, I’ve been saying I would change it for AGES. I actually had something. But it took me so much time to design (thanks to NYSC), I got bored with it… Oops. So, it seems I may have to start from scratch. Again.
Don’t worry, it’s going to be worth the wait.
I’m also considering making a weekly comic (something I haven’t done in oh, 5 or 6 years)…. good idea?
I’ve changed a couple of things around. Please don’t make too much of an effort to look for them however. I added a shoutbox, so instead of random e-mails, leave a lil som’in som’in there for all and sundry to see. It’s on the right sidebar, which I admit is getting cluttered. Will clean it up, I promise.
Right now, the weekend’s on its way, and as far as I’m concerned, it starts now. Problem is this damn rain. It’s been raining all week, and today was the height. I love rain normally, when I’m all cuddled up, with something warm and the TV on. But I’m in an office, wearing heels, a suit and a hairdo that’s getting dangerously rough dangerously quick. Home is a long drive in the rain away…sniff… I just wanna go home…
New layout, hell yeah! I really loved it when i first designed it sometime Saturday esp the header, but the coding took me YEARS. I almost drove myself crazy with the little irritating bugs. And by this mornig, I had lost my thunder for it, and i swore i would put it up, no matter how off it looked. I fixed most things, but you may or may not notice a few organisational issues. Check back for updates. And because I’m just DUMB, i somehow managed to botch up the previous one so bad I cant use it anymore. Opinions pls.
Anyway, it’s the last day of my working week,so I figure I might as well give an update.
Yesterday was alright, but by the end of the day I found myself quite agitated… okay, upset. Someone had tried to accuse me of being a social failure (not in so many words, but that phrase just kept popping up and wont go away in my head). This is after he asked the usual question, “Do u have a bf yet?” and I told him I was really beginning to get a little… very sick of people acting like I’m an old maid. He then tried to act like I didn’t follow the “General Guidelines to a Social Life”.
Anyway, after that I started sinking into a darker mood, enhanced by the fact that I started flashing back (no, never do that) to some other comments people made. I felt really misunderstood. And impatient.
I don’t have a problem. I cant go off and make a desperate act just so people will get off my case. I don’t know why it’s bugging everyone so much. If it bugs YOU, please keep it to yourself. Or you’re in serious danger of a bad comment. 🙂
Other than that, there’s little activity here. Which is good cos I can research, practice, and get my new blog layout up.:D
Tomorrow’s CD. And me and a friend realised we hadn’t done our usual, Cd then hangout routine, and we missed it. So it’s Spiderman 3 tomorrow then. I’m not a horribly big fan, but I promised myself I’d watch all the blocbusters this summer. 2 months to the DEATHLY HALLOWS!
A botched attempt at redoing my page resulted in a temporary change in layout. Imagine my surprise when a friend called up a few minutes later to protest the new, WORDY look. Then again, she made the thing her home page (hmm, aw). But it did really inspire to get rid of this layout. Dont know about you, but i was bored with the blue thing AGES ago. Problem is, I’m not really looking forward to the whole “working with new blogger template” thing.
Honestly haven’t got much to say today, except I’m working my butt off, and I can’t wait for the Easter Hols. My friends all over the country are coming round, and it’ll be a whole my-posse-hangs-out-with-your-posse affair. Oh hurray.
