WordPress 3.4 “Green” is here!

From the WordPress.org blog:

WordPress 3.4 is here and out the door. We’ve dubbed this release “Green” in honor of guitarist Grant Green whose soulful simplicity has kept many of us company during this release.

This release includes significant improvements to theme customization, custom headers, Twitter embeds, and image captions — here’s a short clip with the highlights:

Final Cut Studio 3

In late July (the 27th to be exact), Derek and I woke up to find a video online defining all the amazing differences between the current Final Cut Studio 2… and what would be FCS 3. Here is that video:

I was going to post all the major differences between FCS 2 & FCS 3 but then I went to the description page… and well, that would be a lot more typing than I expected, ha! So if you’d like to see the more intimate details check those out here: http://www.apple.com/finalcutstudio/whats-new.html

Catching Up

With school starting back up a couple weeks ago, trying to get situated with new roommates, and looking to find a job/more freelance work, life has been a little hectic. I’ve had a few other personal issues going on as well but let’s not get into that just yet 😉 I still have some videos to edit and pictures to upload from Australia, as well as a couple videos I’ve made since I’ve gotten back to Texas. Other than Twitter, I’ve been pretty fail on the social front! And as some of you know, my memory isn’t the best and so my future posts about Australia won’t likely be as detailed as the ones previous. I’m sorry!!!

Here’s a a list of the things to expect to see blogged in the next week or so:

✛ Information about the new Final Cut Studio (which Derek and I became really pumped about when I was in Sydney)

✛ Details about the website I made for Derek’s mom’s acting studio- http://actorscreative.com

✛ An explanation as to why I’m constantly so angry at The Arbors (my apt. complex)

✛ What are pikelets? And who is Picasso?! (not the artist!)

✛ Video and pictures of all the great animals at the Sydney Wildlife World

✛ What HDR photography is and why I love it 🙂

✛ Details about the audition Derek and I went to for a kissing scene as well as being extras on the set of Home & Away

✛ Coming back to Texas! 🙁

And allll kinds of random stuff that’s happened since I got back…

Check back daily to see if I’ve posted anything new, and yell at me on Twitter if you think I’m slacking off! lol

Birthday Wishes

I was having kind of a rough start on my birthday. My parents didn’t call and neither did some of the people I consider to be my best friends (Cait is the only one who did call, so +50 “awesome friend” points for her). Then some of my friends made me Birthday videos, and it kinda made up for a lot 😀 Thanks you guys, I love you!

Here’s the “Giddy Birthday Video” Derek and a bunch of people helped to make:
