Last night I barely got sleep. I slept really late, doing an assignment and doing something twice as terrible: procrastinating. I totally should not have started that assignment so late. This morning, I got to university early to finish it off. Sebby kindly helped me cut out some crap for my scrapbook and printed off some things for me. I was still half an hour late to class, but at least I didn’t get slaughtered for it. I don’t think I was in a very good mood for most of the day. James was already going home when I finished class, which was a bit upsetting (even though I finished early). :(
Assignments will be the death of me! 😢 Right now I’ve nearly finished an assignment on reflective media. There isn’t much to write, but I don’t like being analytical, especially at this time of night. I still have to write my bibliography/reference list, which I also don’t enjoy writing. It is time consuming when you have to follow the Harvard style of referencing.
I actually have a break starting next week. I have to work on my research assignment and some group debate that’s set for presentation on the first day back. I’m not looking forward to it but that’s the least of my worries now. I just need more time to relax.
A few years ago I actually wondered what would become of my website and if I would still enjoy web design when I was older. Now that I am older, I feel like it isn’t the way I’d imagined.
I had imagined that I would lose interest in web design and only be a blogger. I had imagined that I would only keep in contact with people via my blogs, and my website would be nothing but a blog. And perhaps at some point, I would only have one domain.
I thought that point would come a lot further down the line, but I think it’s edging a little closer. I’ll be honest: I haven’t updated a lot of my visitor content in months. I know people look at the tutorials and what I’ve got, but it seems that most visitors are attracted to my blog posts instead. I always have to close reviews because I’m so busy. I have to cut down on my domains and the time I spent updating them and adding new things, because I’m busy.
Recently I have noticed that I just take my time with it, too. Maybe I’m seeing it as less of a chore than it was before? Sometimes it’s time for change. I think every blogger/web designer is different, and we’ve all progressed in different ways. We have our own journeys and our own stories to tell – I’m sure you would want to share. :)
In my break, I’m going to clean out a lot of my websites and cut down the amount of work, and time, I spend on them. I miss days when I used to read myself to sleep with a good book, days I watched movies or got crafty or in general, just didn’t spend so much time looking at a screen.
The internet is a beautiful thing, but personally, I have to step back, just a little. I’m not going anywhere, so don’t think I’m going to close my website without saying anything, geez. ;)
