A Blab of Updates

So it seems that I’ve been neglecting this again. Who can be blamed for the lack of activity in here? I’ve just been way too preoccupied with the offline life.
A lot has happened in a span of one month.
Our exhibit that started in the first week of the month has been a success. The yearbook which I designed has been labeled “THE BEST in the history of PSID.” :) Some heart-aching words were said and painful memories were made too. Gladly, those were resolved and things are somewhat back to normal again. ^^;; Gimicks, dancing, get-togethers and heart to heart talks with friends make up for all the exhausting work.
My life was simply in full swing.
Since things are starting to slow down now, I’m probably going to update more often. Granted that I don’t get a writer’s block… something that I’ve been getting quite a lot these past few… err.. weeks!
I also made some changes in my domain. I turned the index page into an online resume/portfolio and I moved my blog to daily.optimystique.net. =)
I promised some pictures, so I’ll leave the links before I go. =)

Layouts: Web and Yearbook

Finally, a new layout! ^^;;
Instead of working on our yearbook layout, this afternoon I sat myself down to work on this site. It was in dire need of a facelift, really. I was getting sick and tired of seeing the grey tones of my previous layout. Sure, the contents are still the same (I haven’t had the time, nor the inspiration to add anything new), but at least this is something fresh to look at.
Being the graphic/layout editor of my batch’s yearbook, has forced me to fiddle around with Photoshop once again. Having almost 200 pages to do in about a month and a half’s time is a lot of work, but it’s been a thrilling job for me.
I had always dreamed of getting myself involved in such work. I’ve been fond of designing graphics, posters and different layouts for as long as I can remember. For several years, I was contented with designing websites. I would tweak around Photoshop and familiarize myself with its different functions. It was a hobby that somewhat helped me develop, not only my skill, but my love for graphic design too. I enjoyed, and still enjoy making websites, but I always hoped that one day I would find myself working on the layout of magazine or a book.
Sure, it’s only a school yearbook that I’m doing and it’s nothing grande, but I’m still very much psyched up. I can’t wait to work on the rest of the pages. I’m excited to see the final outcome of the work that I had always dreamed of doing. =)
.i love you, my bebe! =).
