[Update] Logos, Blog Hiatuses, WordPress Themes, And New Cities

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted because honestly I’ve been incredibly busy with the goals I set for myself. 

Though nothing has gone smoothly, there has been improvement on all fronts and I have every reason to stay determined. Which isn’t easy considering how much I have to get done still.

So much that I am giving myself to the end of December to finish everything. 

Send me all your good vibes because I’m going to need it. So without anymore delay this is what’s been going on.

Build A WordPress Theme For Writers and Artists

Luck be A Lady   Thanks to some really good luck I was contracted to create a WordPress theme who just happened to be an artist. It gave me the chance to really explore what makes a WordPress theme that is useful to a visual artist and photographer. It’s been an interesting challenge that I’ve been enjoying quite a bit.

I am really looking forward to sharing it with you guys. Especially those of you who are artist’s and photographers.

Identity  Crisis I’ve been documenting my process of creating a logo for this blog and it made me have (and I’m fully aware of the irony) sort of an identity crisis. All jokes aside, it really made me think about if I am really accomplishing anything with this blog. Is someone’s life better because of it? Is mine better?  This is what I’ll be addressing with the last post of this series.

I didn’t expect to change the direction of this blog as I designed this logo, and I will be explaining why I decided to in part three. 

Quit Smoking and Spend More time on Health and Fitness.

Vape Ape Pretty excited to be vaping instead of smoking. I’ve been lowering the nicotine doses by weekly and so far it’s been pretty good. Not saying I didn’t relapse a few times but progress is progress. 

Sort Through my Photography

HAHAHA Not only have I not done this I’ve added a 1000 pictures (not an exaggeration) to my ‘unedited’ folder. I have been seriously busy with work and as a result a lot of my smaller goals have been slipping. But the year isn’t over yet!

Design My Personal Business Cards

50-50-50 I’m about halfway done creating a simple web portfolio app. It’s nothing to brag about but it is simple and usable. My personal business cards fund has been allocated to a business development event so I’m going to have to wait a bit to print them. I am planning on using the React APP as my portfolio so at least that’s one less thing to worry about for now. 

Get Bigger Arms and Legs Using a Home Gym

An Easy Mistake To Make All it took was a week of really poor sleeping habits to throw off my exercise routine for two weeks. If I can give one piece of advice, it’d be to come up with a daily routine that you can do no matter what. The point is to not break the streak.

  • Daily Exercise
    • Minimum Twice A Day: 20 Push-ups, 10 chin ups, 5 pull-ups, 20 squats, 20 Crunches, 10 Axe Swings & 1 min Plank
    • Maximum A Day:  100 Push-ups, 20 chin ups, 20 pull-ups, 100 squats, 100 Crunches, 25 Axe Swings & 2 min Plank
    • Keep a log.
  • Monday– Legs & Glutes 
    • Bicep Curls 5×4
    • Cross Body Hammer Curls 
      5×4
  • Wednesday- Back & Core
  • Friday- Arms & Shoulders

Find a New Job/Relocate

Progress I’ve already talked to my boss about it, now all that remains is to finish up my freelance project and start applying. Watch out Sacramento!
