It’s official. I’m nominating myself for the The Laziest Web Designer of the Year Award for slacking on updating my blog and website layouts in addition to The Laziest Blogger of the Year Award for the lack of good blog posts. Seriously, if these awards existed I would totally be in the running. Actually, I’m going to Google them, just out of curiosity to see if they actually exist.
Anyway. With that aside, I actually considered making a new WordPress theme. *gasps all around* I know what you’re thinking, It’s about damn time. Trust me, I feel the same way. If only I had a way to overcome this lack of inspiration as far as designing is concerned… but I don’t know what’s up with me. I guess being busy with school, family, and my guy have been my major priorities, so everything else has been put on the back burner.
What sucks is I recently applied for an internship and I didn’t have a portfolio put together to show the potential employer. I had to scrounge around my old computer for some good examples of my work; I knew where they were because I am anal about labeling all of my files and folders correctly, but it was still a pain. So that needs to be a major project for me: Re-creating a gallery or portfolio of work, some good stuff aside from layouts for Burned-Bridges.net and other screen shots of websites I made when I was 16 and 17 years old. I know I have some good stuff somewhere to showcase – like all of the work I did for Monkey See Monkey Do LLC with the logos, brochures, etc. even if the business sort-of came to an end. (I’m guessing? Still no word from my friend- if she even still is or wants to be my friend anymore, I’m not even sure. The domain expires at the end of the month and I don’t know whether to renew it or what…
Another project, of course, is figuring out what to do with this domain and Burned-Bridges.net. I’m still torn about if I want to keep things or just move on with my life. It shouldn’t be this difficult, but it is when the personal history and time spent working on these projects for so many years is considered. I love starting fresh when it comes to some things, but at the same time I do have a problem letting go of certain things in the past; I eventually bring myself to it, but it’s incredibly difficult. I guess that’s just how I roll, though.
