Long ago, I had to uninstall the WordPress App because for some reason it just kept freezing and lagging whenever I was multitasking with my website project work, online classes, and the likes. I’m happy that I’m able to use it again without going online and into the main dashboard. I would only do that when I would work on some design and maintenance work instead.
I was going to write about something else when I decided to visit some friends’ blogs first. Then I came across Cristina‘s classic blog challenge that I remembered doing during the good ol’ days of blogging. I don’t think my handwriting changed at all, but I tried to get my hands back to getting used to holding a pen again, mainly for brush lettering practice and creating some art using markers. I have to admit, my hand was really shaking when I was writing these, so they look a lot sloppier than the last time I was writing on paper. It’s a bit embarrassing, but nevertheless, I’ve done the challenge.
Now that’s out of the way…
Last year, I wrote about my first experience with the San Jose chapter of GDI in one of their bi-weekly study groups. Tuesday last week (2/28), I attended my second GDI meeting, this time in a much closer Oakland. I wrote about this in The NINPOJineous instead of here because I feel that it’s a lot more appropriate to be written over there instead. My first GDI experience post last year had to be here because The NINPOJineous hasn’t existed yet. I hope you all take some time to read about it and maybe encourage would-be web designers and developers to seek and find local empowerment groups that would support them, especially those who are in the minority, such as women, non-Asian minorities, adults who are older than the 30s, and a whole lot more. I’ve already sought after more meetup groups that I can join and attend and I found two local WordPress meetup groups.
The best thing about my local WordPress meetup groups is that from time to time, they get to have some gatherings and field trips at the Automattic office and meet the great people there, from the CEO Matt to everyone else involved. Maybe someday, I will be one of those people working for a great company and with a great blogging/CMS platform. I can’t wait for that day!
Some random thoughts…
My Korean skincare adventures continue with making my first purchase from Memebox. They had a huge March Madness doorbuster sale for one week and a lot of the very talked-about, popular products were in huge sales! I spent less than $50 to get these items and I was so happy that I finally got them today.
I’ve heard a lot of raves about the two particular items there (Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask and Skin Ceramic Donkey Milk Yogurt All-In-One Moisture Gel Cream), plus these particular items are quite unusual in any skincare product I’ve come across. I have tried snail gel before, and now we’ve got donkey milk as an ingredient and a clay mask that bubbles. Interesting, don’t you think? The other two items consist of a blender and a Comedo Remover (blackhead remover).
I don’t know if I’m going to do reviews on these, but I can’t wait to use them! I’m going to use the bubble clay mask right after I’m done with this entry, and then the gel cream tomorrow morning.
And last, but not least…
The Wellspring Dreams Club (WDC) forum is alive and kicking, slowly but surely. I don’t think I’ve done enough promoting of the forum, other than joining two link directories so far. I promoted this in another forum and hopefully will do the same with another forum I recently joined, but I haven’t had the time to post on them as of late. There are a few that I would really love to promote it to, but I’m a little shy and cautious. Never mind the shy part, it’s the cautious part is what worries me.
So, here I am again, promoting the forum. I hope I get to see some of you there and join in the fun with the others who are already there!
