wewwww. it's so hot out lately.
well, i began work a few weeks ago! it's nice to be back in the swing of things, although it's a challenge trying to balance work alongside all the other habits / things i got on top of during lockdown. things like drawing practice, job hunting, house work etc. i guess it's just another challenge to take on. it's not too stressful at work right now, so it's even nicer. very stress-free! so i'm quite happy it's a 'small' addition to the list of things i have to do, something that isn't gonna leave me stressed out and tired at the end of the day so soon. i'm happy where i am right now, which dosen't mean it's time to sit back and relax, i still need to push myself to apply to new jobs, i need to take this easy period as an opportunity to improve myself.
things to do before work tomorrow:
-practice drawing a bit more
-clean my makeup brushes
-do some laundry
-buy cosrx bha blackhead power liquid
p.s: i would like to get a new layout done for this website! feelin inspiredddd

i start back at work on monday, that is if everything goes to plan. i am excited, nervous, kinda not looking forward to it? i dunno. i would love a new job that would help me get to the next stage in my life, moving out, getting a place with my boyfriend, all that junk. but having to give up my studio, stop volunteering, all the extra stuff i like to do with me only being part time? it is kinda scary. i guess i got too comfortable in the position i am in right now, so thinking of anything diffrently is hard. also, my boyfriend has made a lot of sacrifices and life changes so we can eventully move in, it would be selfish of me to drag my feet in getting to the next step, if that makes sense.
in websitey news, i have been pretty much concentrating entirely on my piczo project heheh. i moved it to its own standalone website! so go check that out:)

happy easter to those who celebrate :) and to those who don’t, enjoy the chocolate eggs hehe. i’ve been spending lots of my furlough leave on this website and i have been loving every second of it. so much so that i upgraded to the premium plan of neocities, and honestly i’ve considered moving over my portfolio to here too. i probably won’t on the portfolio side though, as i would have to ‘translate’ it to a static website, and change nameservers, and the list goes on. it’s all entirely doable though:)
my little piczo project has been coming alone so well!!! i‘m considering moving it to its own seperate site and keeping avenue seperate. the piczo project was the start of my web design journey, and avenue was the next chapter. then whats this chapter? the resurgence? maybe i should write some lore for this...
my next to do list for the piczo project is uploading all my old blogs from previous websites/blogs i have found. god i wish i saved them, and i wish that the original piczo website was archived properly so that i could attempt to find previous blogs of mine. same for freewebs, and awardspace... :(
i love that this pandemic has given me time to really delve into these little side projects and hobbies of mine. although i hope it never ends, i miss seeing my boyfriend. i miss going places. i miss going to the city. i think i will work like the leave is going to come to an end, just incase it does. in which case, i really hope that this piczo project will be completed soon. i can’t wait to see how the finished result looks

okay i'll update tomorrow as i am very tired it'stime forbed night x
i had a spark of love and inspiration and this layout is what came out of it. from start to finish it took me about 4 or 5 hours. i forgot how much i love making these layouts and these photoshop collage things... i would love to make websites like this for people allll day everyday. i remember years ago people used to do like 'website packages' from like £10 - £50 for a website layout. like entire websites dedicated for a hub to see portential website designs, and where they could email in and request a 'slot'. ahh nostalgia
i updated my lists, moved the 'at the moment' list to a new page (i'm still not sure what i think about it... still deciding i guess. i might move the sidebar back to the right hand side too) and i've been working on a piczo-looking website that will archive all my old blogs i've dug up over the years... i'm talking like 2007! speak soon x
