Random Work Excitement

First of all, it’s important to know that I’m one of those web developers that not only hates seeing poorly designed websites, but sometimes I actually consider redesigning the super-awful ones… just for fun. Obviously something is wrong with me. 😉

Anyways, it feels like 75% of my job is simple content updates to the main SHSU website, digital signage screens, mass emails, etc. Every once in a while though, a project gets handed to me that I’m genuinely excited for. Today I got to start on a website redesign for the Sam Houston Memorial Museum. Not to put down the previous developer (because I don’t actually know when their last theme update was), but the site is looking a little gnarly for 2012. Long story short, I’m super excited for this project, especially since the museum curator already approved/loved my mockup. You can see a preview of it here →

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
