Even with my education, personal project, and work as a TA, I probably won't be able to fill up this blog with enough content. My lineup is looking at about one post in advance, but this is just in the beginning. I'm bound to run out of steam and begin posting at a rate of about 2-3 a week. But until then, I'm just gonna try and pump out as much stuff as I can. I plan on adding actual interviews and articles, so I promise these narcissistic posts are only temporary.
I think it's important for the future readers, to kinda understand who I really am, and what kind of things I'm interested in. My posts from here on out will reflect that, so you'll get an idea what will be posted here. Sure, I guess I can link my Pinterest account for you to see. In fact, I will.
Every time I show this site to those around me, I always get asked what the little nematode things are. Frankly, I don't know. But I like it. They came to me -- figuratively speaking -- when I was frustrated while designing a logo for the site. Cynically, I drew a dumb looking slime (because I was working on the bean bag design at the same time) out of contempt for all the well designed, clean graphics. Annnnnnnnnnd it stuck.
It's cute, and it reflects the stuff I want my stuff to be known for: something that both kids and adults would enjoy. That's the reason I chose the mature colour scheme, and paired it with rounded san serif and quirky serif typefaces. It's also the reason why I went with the animated gif buttons, even though I know that it doesn't look like buttons. I'll change it soon, I promise...
But first, I'm going to got through the stuff that made me the person I am.
I guess that's enough for now. I may revisit this theme in the future and fill out other parts of my life. Who knows.
