So I am going to try and remember to write here at least once a week.  I know you all missed my craziness and everyone can always use a good dose!

Last week I graduated with my Associate’s Degree in Multimedia/Web Design. Woohoo!  Which prompted me to set up my site to do some freelancing while continuing my education.  Since I’m a tutor at Chesapeake College I have the summer off and I’m going to spend it with my family in Arizona.

You can see some of my work  at ambivalentlizarddesigns.com.  I’m currently working on updating the Alice site I did my first semester for this degree.  A darker updated site.

For the final week of class we had our annual party and of course I made cupcakes.  This was my first time piping roses, but they turned out alright.  Painting the Roses Red!

And most recently I saved a kitten.  My friend Kristen had some living under her shed that we tried to catch.  So far only this one has been caught, which sucks because we also want the black one!  Here is my Alice.

Rather annoying little shit loves to scratch the hell out of me, but I love her anyway.

2 more days and WildStar releases!  Well, for those of us that pre-ordered.  Super excited to play this new game!  I played in beta and it rocked.  So that is all I plan to do next week with my nephew.  For now I suppose I should go work on my Alice site!

So it’s my second to last day of the semester and I finally “completed” my Alice site revisions.  While it is a project I plan to work on forever, this is what it has turned out to be for my final project. (click the pic to see!)

With that finished it is time to work on uploading all my digital work to my school blog – Graphically Demented.  That will be finished later today if anyone is curious.  Thursday I present that blog and my final project for my HTML Site.  If you click the heart pic, it will take you to my index page for HTML and all sites I have put together this semester.  None of the content is mine (except the home page for Scotland Tours), but I did all the css and html code (and designed the index page and Scotland Tours pages).

I am looking forward to some time to relax, play Guild Wars, catch up on my favorite shows, and work on my personal web site.  About the only thing I have been able to discover this semester is “Hemlock Grove” a netflix series.  SO ADDICTIVE!  I was hooked 5 min into the first episode.  I can’t wait for the next season! Take a peek!

 

I have been so neglectful of my poor blog lately, but only 2 weeks left until finals are over!  I am still working some kinks out on my Alice site, because of course it doesn’t want to line up all nice for me without some tweaks.  However, for my digital design class I made “the last flower on earth.” Everyone thought it was pretty kool so I thought I’d share it here.

Unfortunately the awesome steam punk background isn’t showing up!  So I will get the background up soon – I can’t now because I just went from Windows Vista to Windows 8 Pro and I still have to put my adobe programs back on the comp and therefore can’t make my illustrator files into gifs.

On a very sad note Damen, middle, passed away this last week and I will miss him terribly.  Everyone will.  He was a great guy that made life fun and improved the lives of those around him.  In case anyone who reads this is in Arizona.. Jolie’s Place in Chandler is having a benefit for his family May 5th from 2-6pm.  It would be much appreciated if anyone could go help out as I myself cannot.

Now, hopefully in the next couple of days I can link you my updated Alice site.. if I can stop playing Guild Wars 2!  I have been overly addicted this past week and procrastinating even more than usual.  Spring fever is here!  Looking forward to no more homework for awhile and hopefully a few fun road trips this summer.  Haunted locations here I come!

Why is it as soon as you think you’ve caught up, so much more needs to be done?!  Without previously saying we would be redoing our sites ( Absolutely Alice).. today we get told we have til the end of the semester to make it better… That’s barely a month!  Not to mention the other two sites I have due in a month.. oh and the one I’m doing for my friend Andrea (she did the header, footer, and bottles on my website.).  She is going to draw me an armadillo girdled lizard for my company logo – so excited!

So the new sites for school are

– A predone content site for HTML on Scotland Tours.  I only get to write the code and design the layout/pick colors.  And the home page is whatever I want.. The rest sadly is already given to us.

-A website for my professor.  She gave us a group project and since she is so impressed by my skills she asked my group to work on pages for her OWN site.  Awesome!

This means I will have 2 sites being used on the web shortly!  I am super excited about it because it will allow me to do a portfolio that isn’t just a bunch of files.. but also available anywhere and everywhere.

One thing I do have to work on is finding someone to intern with sometime in the spring of 2014.  I don’t know who to ask or who would even put up with me, but I’m hoping someone great who will teach me tons.  For now I’ll leave you with a favorite quote of mine…
