I said I would have a surprise after I was done my finals and here it is! A new layout LOL! I had the other one up for over a year so I thought I’d change it for now. I was actually trying to figure things out for quite a while. People that are good with coding and customizing their layout would probably think it was a piece of cake but I had to keep tinkering with it.
I thought I would put it up once I was done with my finals so I can sort out any messes. On the day I was going to put it up I saw that the theme had an update.. this had actually happened to me before but I totally forgot.. but when you update the theme it sets everything back to default. I didn’t save a backup or create it as a child theme and I accidentally pressed refresh on the tab I had my site opened so I couldn’t even look at that as reference. I was just pulling my hair out that night ::GAH::.
Another thing I noticed when I was doing the fonts for the previous theme. Google Chrome hates Google Web Fonts. I don’t know why since it’s their own product but I’ve searched online about this and it seems like it’s a pretty prominent issue with no fix. The fixes that people had up were for previous versions of Chrome and don’t work anymore ::swirl::. Let me show you my problem:
What is that jagged mess on the right!? It’s so smooth and nice on the left with Firefox! GAH!!! –throws clenched fists up in the air– Whatever, I give up LOL. I’m sorry Chrome users, you’re just going to have to look at that. The sidebar is also blargh right now, but you know… after 3 days of fixing up behind the scenes (aka. the categories and tags) and fixing the stupid layout. I’m beat LOL.
One of my besties and I were talking about colour themes for someone’s wedding. She mentioned how she loved Tiffany blue and then after my chirp of agreement she quickly yelled (sans swearing), “I CALL IT! YOU BETTER NOT TAKE IT!!” I was of course taken aback! So I told my other bestie later on that day about how Tiffany blue was apparently off the table. That’s when I hear, “I like lavender..like a soft lilac…I CALL LAVENDER!”
Son of a ………. ::GAH::!!! LOL!!
So you know what? Now I feel like I should claim some colours too! HA! –taps the microphone– I’d like to announce that I’m claiming the colour theme peach-white-with a tiny bit of gold amongst our circle of friends. Think peach can match anyone’s skintone and soft peach just looks so feminine and…well, soft LOL! I did a quick search on pinterest for some pictures harhar.
Sort of funny because none of us really ever thought about how our weddings would be like, at least I never did. It was just never a pastime for me to think how I would like my wedding in the future. Now that we’re in our 20s though people are starting to get pregnant and engaged and it brings up talks about it all.
On that subject it’s interesting to see how my close friends aren’t that into marriage! Or is that the norm nowadays? Young women want to be more like a power woman and just be focused on their career and rise to the top. Marriage can be saved for later, sort of mindset? I think especially now with the divorce rates being so high women might be more afraid? I don’t know why but so many people around me has had to suffer with shady guys.
So it’s not just about being focused on their career but also because you have to invest so much into a marriage? Sometimes amongst my close friends I feel like I’m the most level-headed romantic of the group HAHA. What I mean by that is I wish for the marriage and settling down part but I’m not exactly the type to keep my rose-coloured glasses on the whole time. Anyway, I can tell I’m going to start rambling with this post so I shall just end it off here haha!
