I am making it my mission to learn how to make my own WordPress theme. Why? Because I want one that looks like theirs damnit: Jenn & Whitters. Why? Because I love, love, love the way theirs looks. Love it. And damnit, it can’t be that hard. I just spent an hour looking at free WordPress themes and all of them had slider images and all these bells and whistles and I don’t want mine to be nearly that complicated.
So, before the end of this weekend I am determined to sketch out what I want my layout to look like, gather fonts, possibly create a rough header in Photoshop and read all I can about coding a WordPress theme.
…and possible emailing some people for help. You know…tips and tutorials and such.
Any advice is gladly welcome.
I decided to start over. My blog posts were few and far between. I love my new job but it has been harder finding time to enjoy the things I once did. I find I have to make the time myself. It probably seems that way more so because it is winter and when I go into work it is dark and by the time I get out of work, it is dark. I feel that when spring and summer come and the sunlight lasts longer, I won’t feel this way as much.
My room-mates and I have the house decorated for the holidays. I always feel a little weird about celebrating “Christmas” as I am not Christian. I try each year to make the holidays more my own. I didn’t quite succeed this year, but I feel next year will be better. It’s an inner struggle I have difficulty explaining to others.
I have been working more on my crafts, photography and volunteer work. I am also trying to make time to go to the gym. And I need to eat better. I was thinking of buying a Weight Watchers Online membership. I have enough money left over from my birthday to buy the three month deal. Now I just need to put on my big girl panties and do it.
