(OOC)Been a while…

It’s been a while for me on here but school and work has made me quite a busy cat.

As for school, it’s been going great. Learning lots of stuff and it’s quite fun. Glad I don’t feel too out of place even though I’m generally about as old as most of the teachers XP. Been learning web design at school too and also been playing around with wordpress (see mutelion.com for my game/school blog made with wordpress). Funny enough I like it a bit better than drupal at the moment. Drupal is not bad mind you but the more I work with the the more sluggish it seems. Also it really feels like to get it the way you want you need to add fifty billion addons, but I’m sure wordpress is the same. Going to see if I can replicate the site though using wordpress though and see if it would be possible to move everything over to there (just as an experiment but if it works and is faster better for us).

On the work front… I forgot how much I loved/hated retail. I have barely been getting hours so I have barely been getting paid. If it weren’t for government funds for school and a really awesome roommate I probably wouldn’t be able to pay for anything. As it is I am barely paying for things right now. But with the holidays coming I expect an influx in hours at least which means and influx in pay, also with next semester will probably only get two classes so I can use school funds to pay for life. Just a couple more years of this and I should have a better job :P

Anyway sorry been gone for so long just been super busy. Am still looking up the site frequently but haven’t followed any stories in a while. As always though if you need anything just message me through the site and I will reply.

Spread the love

    Good to hear your news, Cyan.  You’re obviously very dedicated in what you do and have your priorities right.  That said it will be interesting to see the results of your wordpress experimenting.  May it not involve a dungeon of deadly spiders. :o)

      Awwww! *releases the deadly spiders into the wild… of chicago* I suppose it won’t be that then.

    Yay! Good to hear from you :D I’m trying not to show how excited I am about the prospect of maybe waving goodbye to Drupal. With a box of TNT. And an air strike. And maybe a loud raspberry. But we know you won’t let it interfere with studies and work.

    It’s great to hear it’s going well. All of this effort will pay off in a big way, so hang in there.  :D

      It’s funny, I used to love drupal but it’s just too complicated for it’s own good and wordpress so much easier. For some reason I had this fear of WordPress cause I thought it was just a blog and heard many people didn’t like it, But trying it myself is simple and clean. So we’ll see what comes out of it.

      I’m hanging in there and throughly enjoying it (although think I need to retouchup some c# skills :P ).
