I know WMW.org has been quiet for the last month, and there is a reason for that. My mom passed away on April 25th, 2017, after a very long and painful battle with multiple illnesses; the last eight months of her life were misery and agony, and she wanted to be with her father, brother, sister, and mother again. I prayed for her to be healed and whole and happy again…and she is now. Even though I miss her terribly, I would not wish for her to be imprisoned in her injured and ailing physical body again. But it was very hard to work on anything site-related when I pretty much knew she was not going to be here much longer, as you can imagine.
I don’t know what I will be able to get done here throughout the rest of 2017…things are still strange and empty here at home, and grief is a weird ebb and flow of tides in my head. But I did want to share with you the playlist I made for Mom’s Celebration of Life–I wanted others to know my mom through music, because she loved music. I hope you enjoy it. <3
I have done a complete overhaul of this site, from its color scheme to its content and everything in between! There are two entirely new sections (Schoolwork and Work), new images for every post, and everything else has at least been revised to my current standards (i.e., lots of Google Fonts and better writing). The best part? It’s even more mobile-friendly!
Let me know what you think (and if you find any bugs or strangeness on the site–well, any strangeness other than my perspective, haha)!
a music tributes site
I vastly expanded my old “WMW.org Radio” site to become Mellifluous, a music tributes site featuring “new to me” songs, all time top favorite tracks, and five 20-song Youtube playlists assembled according to various themes. It’s got plenty of room for expansion as I add more favorite songs and create new playlists, but for now, enjoy what I have uploaded so far!
a depression information site
After a year and some change (both figuratively and literally), I have gone back to tackle this site! Since I have been recently diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, whose symptoms include depression, I have added important details about how PTSD connects to depression to round out this site and make it more informative and helpful. (I also added Google Fonts, a new button, and updated code to my current standards.) Let me know what you think!
This little site now has a new(ish) layout design, with a new color scheme and lots (LOTS) of little polishing touches! (I plugged my WIP on Discord last night and finalized everything today!)
I’m so glad to be finally content with this layout…it only took me a year and some change to figure out that the image of Dove needed to be the lightest and brightest thing in the design! Once I realized that, then the darker color scheme quickly took shape, and I started getting more excited to fix other things about the layout. Now the code has also been updated and some writing has been tidied up as well! WOO! (Just goes to show you how a little spark of inspiration can set my whole mind ablaze with productivity!)
After 2 years and several (SEVERAL) revisions, this little site is finally ready to show off! What was once a tiny site of 5 pages has now been rewritten and expanded with 5 brand-new articles to round out the content, including an introduction to Olaf as a character. I think I’ve finally nailed everything I wanted to say about Olaf and why I find so much to love about his character in the film!
(Fun facts: I actually had this revamp technically done on the 20th, but I waited a couple of days to see if I wanted to add anything more before officially plugging it here…also, I am still open to suggestions, especially about design choices!)
I’ve been quiet about my work on Absentia (my Eighth Doctor site), but that doesn’t mean I quit working on it entirely! (I did have some slowdowns due to lack of inspiration and motivation, but I think I’m fighting through those now :D)
Anyhow, I’ve added a couple new articles to Absentia: PTSD, the Eighth Doctor, and Me, and A Wacky Theory about the TV Movie. Check ’em out, let me know if they look weird or are hard to read, and let me know what you think about the topics I’ve covered! 😀
Also, I’m working behind the scenes on my Olaf site, The Impossible Dream (not going to link it yet because what is currently up is kind of embarrassing slkdjflksjdf). It got nominated for a Shrine Spotlight award over at Amassment, so I’m newly motivated to get this thing shined up and beefed up with more content, better layout/fonts, etc.!
Today I updated the design for my links page, as well as fixing a bit on my main page!
YAY I’m slightly more productive now! (more like infinitesimally more productive xD)
(Also I added another project to my list: I’m going to be doing a general Animal Crossing site at long last! Now to figure out how in the world this site is even going to work xD)
My third project of 2017 is live! (Actually, I even completed it yesterday–thank you, snow days! xD)
Now this little page shows the current state of my novels…yup, that’s right, novels! I took the one big book I’ve been working on for YEARS and officially split it into three books. The second and third books are novel-length already (over 75,000 words), and the first book will be as soon as I beef it up with more story and description. At least…I hope so ^_^;
Anyhow, take a moment and check out the new and improved-ness! YAY PRODUCTIVITY AT LAST 😀
College Classes I’ve Taken
This little site has gotten its Google Fonts and some style tidying along the way, as well as some added information. WOOT! (I had intended to finish this in July, but since I finished Clefairy so early in January, I figured, “Why not try to finish another project?” 😀 )
Now to check the 2017 projects list for what else I can do in January…!
