New Year, Same Old Me

I don’t really have much to say at all. I just feel I should use this space more often.

So what’s happening lately?

  • I’m starting a set of nights today… Only they didn’t have cover from 17:00-21:00 tonight, so I’m doing a 17:00-9:00 shift today
  • Meeting my supervisor in the morning to go over the craptastic ePortfolio, which is a piece of shit way of documenting your work throughout training so that you can “graduate” when the time comes
  • Flying out in a week – to Canada – I can’t wait!
  • I’m getting close to reaching my personal goal of having reduced my educational debts to half. Yes, HALF! This is something else I can’t wait for!
  • I must work on my to-do list… it’s just so hard to get started
  • I’ve slowly created another locum wishlist… this is pretty and expensive toys I want but should not dip into my regular budget for, therefore I work extra shifts to afford extra things
  • Recently I’ve extended my domain name subscriptions and hosting… I can’t remember was I was paying before but I feel like prices have skyrocketed! And I didn’t have the lovely option of paying for a domain name for 10 years in advance like I have with others.

I think that’s it. I had started making a theme a few years ago… It’s still sitting on my desktop with a few PHP kinks I need to work out. At this rate, I don’t even know what’s new in the world of PHP so my theme may be completely outdated… I’ve got an exam coming up in April/May, but maybe after that I can start coding again.

Why Did I Volunteer?

Me and my big mouth.

I really don’t have much interest in getting involved with things outside of school — well, not that I’m not interested, but I don’t have time for anything. I recently joined two interest groups (well, because only two exist). I actually agreed to create a website for one of the groups. And that was like 2 months ago.

I just started working on it. I was going to create a WordPress layout, but I’ve only ever made one layout from scratch (this one), and that was with the help of a tutorial that doesn’t exist anymore. So, because I’m determined to put this website online ASAP (and because I promised), I’ve decided to forgo the WP theme, and I’m actually coding it with plain ol’ HTML. It feels so weird…

Lesson learned: don’t volunteer to do things you don’t have time for.
