I think it has been sufficiently long enough between my last post and this one. Though, some of you may or may not know, I have been on an exchange in Australia for the past 4.5 months, so I think that is a good reason! I had an amazing experience in Australia. I met a lot of great people, and I saw a lot (even got to pop over to New Zealand for a week!), but there is just so much more to see. Australia is a massive country, and though I was there for 4.5 months, I was at uni. So, I did have school work to do, but I managed to see as much as I could, with good grades to boot! I will definitely be heading back at some point in the hopefully not-too-distant future. I know what I want to see still, and what I want to go back and see more of!
Now that I am back, I have some plans for my online portfolio coming up!

It’s been awhile since my last post. I’m not very good at blogging I guess. But my busy schedule keeps me, well, busy!
I’ve been working on lots of projects, not only for my classes but for the Media Research Lab and the Media Studies department. I’m the MRL Student Manager, so I get to work on lots of things, and it keeps me super busy, but I like it a lot! So, shortly after the end of the semester I should have a few new projects up on my portfolio. 🙂
However, the end of semester could come a lot sooner… or at least our reading week may be extended. There is an impending strike at VIU, and the deadline is March 4th. I’m on reading week right now, and potentially we could have classes next week to only have no classes the follow week if a strike does occur. I have my fingers crossed that the strike does not happen, or if it must that it doesn’t last long. If it does last awhile, I personally do not mind if the semester has to be extended a bit, but I just don’t want the semester to get cancelled all together.
But I am keeping myself busy (which isn’t hard to do), and continuing to work work work away like nothing is happening. It’s all we can do really. Just wait and see what happens!
With some of my projects, I’m really getting my hands dirty with WordPress. I should be a WordPress Wizard of some sort by the end of the semester! I’m in love with WordPress, it’s just awesome. I’ve been working a lot more with just PHP again as well, and I’m hoping to get into OOPHP before the semester comes to a close.
Thanks for stopping by! I’m finally able to release my website to the world. It has been down for a long time and I spent a lot of time on it – especially when I lost some work and had to spend a couple hours putting content back in. I’ve learned from that mistake, big time. I went with a clean, fresh look for my website, and it’s my first time using WordPress and a working with a child theme (off of Thematic). I really enjoyed the experience, and I’m looking forward to using it a lot more, and getting to know it as a CMS!!
