So, for the first time I failed in NaNoWriMo this year. The only reason that I can give for this was because I dropped out in the middle of November to endure in to something important, at least to me. I’m not upset or anything, it’s not like I’m going to make a career out of novel writing when I don’t have the proper methods to actually prepare to write a major novel. Although I still dream of having at least one of my novels to be published one day. I’ll just keep on trying and keep on dreaming hahaha.
I started working on my upcoming portfolio site. For now I wanted to do the business card style approach where everything is just straightforward until I finally find a better design and how to present my work. I think it’s time since I have been doing a lot of web project with only a word of mouth to rely on and I still don’t have a plan on how I’m going to promote my services to the masses, which includes charging fees and what not. For now I’m only doing voluntary work to gain experience in all aspects in graphic/web design freelancing.
Thanksgiving was fun, though the weather did not exactly make it the most memorable ever. I loathe Black Friday and bought a few things on Cyber Monday for Christmas. I did the Christmas tree decorations myself last weekend except the star top was missing, so now we’ve got a decked tree with no star on top. Right now dad and bro are putting up the lights and the light parols around the house. Mom is sleeping while the TV is on. Middle Sis is watching TV at the parents’ room and I just got back from the library to borrow some books and writing out this entry.
I’m pondering of changing the layout of this blog site, but I’m still working on my portfolio and other various projects so I’ll save that for later.
