New layout… finally.

I just realised my contact form wasn’t working because I forgot to set an email address to send it to! D’oh, if you were applying affiliation – I’m so sorry I didn’t get it and you may need to re-apply ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m super-duper excited for this layout. My first layout for WordPress. It was incredibly difficult (okay, I’m exaggerating. Some bits were easy because I had some basic knowledge of CSS and PHP) but overall I’m happy with the outcome. It features Tom Felton – looking utterly luscious – so I’m very happy about that. I’d like to thank Brey for the header. ๐Ÿ™‚ She also made a David Tennant one, so when I’m bored of Tom Felton (although, I don’t think I’ll ever be bored of him ;D) I’ll change the header to DT. I realise I still need to do a few tweaks here and there but I was too excited and wanted to release my work of art as soon as poss. Especially after several posts of me ranting how this, this and this wouldn’t work. It’s been validated in FF with the Web Developer’s tool and also the W3C CSS Validation Service. So, I’m quite happy with that. I’m actually really happy about this layout because I don’t need many plugins – the only one featured so far is Twitter plugin and I think that’s about it. I’m not saying I deleted all my other plugins because obviously I may need them for future layouts but with no sidebar, I think viewers will actually focus on my blog posts. Haha. I mean seriously when I go on my own site I know my eyes would stray to the sidebar, haha.

Does this mean I now call myself a web designer? Hell no. I’m a blogger first and foremost. I may have coded this layout but I am FAR from a web designer. Maybe with several more goes and more readings of tutorials I might be able qualify. Honestly, I’m not into that sort of things but it is nice to have a general knowledge so I can personalise my site to my own advantage. I was kind of tired having to use premades. It didn’t really show what kind of site I wanted mine to be. Actually, come to think of it… I know this is my blog but I’m not sure whether it’s a cute blog or whatever? Do you know what I mean? Well, whatever… I’ll stick to what it is at the moment because I’m happy with that. I’m rambling…

I recently accquired another Nintendo DS. I’m not sure if I blogged about this but the DS I had before suddenly stopped working and even when I tried to charge it, it did not work. So anyway, a friend at work – her sister’s daughter had a DS which she didn’t want anymore. To cut a long story short, she gave me the DS. It’s a bit broken… as in the top is almost falling off. However, I’m happy as long as I can play my Pokemon: Platinum game. I just need to buy a case so that when i play the top doesn’t constantly fall off ๐Ÿ™‚ Other than that, I was actually estatic because I thought I would never be able to play Pokemon again ;( Right now, I’m addicted to it. I mean I even play it while eating my breakfast. This morning, I was playing it whilst also trying to code this layout… haha. I got toast crumbs on the screen. D’oh!

I got summoned to work today but it’s all good because I only worked half day, and I still get an adequate amount of money. ๐Ÿ˜€ So, all in all I am a very happy bunny indeed. Especially since when I went to the shop next door to top-up my phone I managed to purchase a Harry Potter sticker album. I was vair happy. Especially about the Draco Malfoy section. My friends at work were laughing at my addictiveness (is that a word?) to Harry Potter…


Did anyone notice the Snitch on my bedsheets? Yeah, that’s right.. I have Harry Potter bedset. Go, me! ๐Ÿ˜€

I must search on the internet so I can complete my sticker album. This is another thing for me to do for the summer other than read. I’m still reading Rumours but I’m planning on reading Inkheart too. ๐Ÿ™‚ I actually get so excited when I get a new book. You know? When it’s all fresh and crisp and smells like ‘new book’? Then when you’ve finished it’s a little dog-earred (to get a little more dog-earred if you read it loads of times :D) and the edges are a bit frayed but even so, you still feel content because it shows that you actually read the book. Refreshing.

I am going to Trocadero on Friday with Mutay. I’m vair excited because

  1. Who doesn’t like a good gaming arcade?
  2. It’s Trocadero which is like near Hamley’s which is the BEST toy store in the world… well, I can’t say the world because I haven’t been to them all. So, I’ll just say London then. Haa.
  3. I get to go out with Mutay. Who I haven’t seen since last Monday? Or the Monday before that?
  4. I can finally buy my friends their birthday presents.
  5. I haven’t been up London in a long time. I seriously need to get out of the house…

I have a university open day. I’m only going because I don’t want to bum around at home all the time. Also, jsut to check it out even though my heart is set on Coventry University. That’s if I get in… I seriously hope I get the grades. Fingers crossed. I wish I’d have revised more instead of procrastinating. I am the epitome of procrastination. It’s not vair good at all.

Right, I must edit the ‘About’ section. Add the credits and all ๐Ÿ˜€ There are a lot of people to thank, to be honest.

    Nice new layout, I congratulate you on making a wordpress layout, I’ve tried wordpress once and since then I’ve been deathly afraid to try it again. I also understand what you mean about the web designing thing, to call yourself a web designer you really need to have a lot of knowledge about coding. Nintendo ds, in all my life I’ve never owned a good gaming system so I’m jealous right now lol .
    Okay I’m jealous again cause you’re going to an awesome toy store…there are no glorious toy stores where I live, wow you made a girl somewhere far off really envious xD
    I hope you get the grades to go into your university of your choice, we procrastinators must unite to fight…procrastination? Eh..that sounds odd, well me being random again o.O

  10. August 7, 2009 / 12:51 am

  11. August 7, 2009 / 12:46 pm

  12. August 8, 2009 / 3:18 am
