Hard at Work on Absentia and The Impossible Dream!

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.!

The Terrible Tooth and December Plans

My December plans are a bit more scaled back due to some unforeseen circumstances (see below), but I still hope to finish Absentia. Let’s just say it was a good thing I had so much energy and got so much done in the early parts of November!

I am, however, on the mend now, and I’m looking forward to completing the site for my favorite Doctor before the end of the year. I actually have a few new articles I’d like to add, too!

As for what happened to me these last couple of weeks:

Trigger Warning: Health stuff, possible grossness

Starting on the Tuesday night before Thanksgiving, I got hit with terrible jaw pain…which evolved into terrible tooth pain on Saturday…which turned out to be a severe abscess in my left bottom jaw, finally discovered on Sunday morning. A cracked tooth that had been heavily filled and rebuilt in February had never been quite right afterward, and unbeknownst to me, decay and infection had continued under the filling. Despite this, the tooth had suffered in silence before the infection finally spilled out into my face, swelling my cheek and jaw and making it impossible to eat or even clean the tooth without stabbing pain. Neither cold nor heat would soothe this pain; only 800 milligrams of ibuprofen would even begin to handle its throbbing.

I thus spent most of the Thanksgiving holiday cradling my face, taking obscene amounts of Valium and Advil, and sobbing/screaming my head off, especially at night (occasionally contemplating whether bashing my face against the doorjamb would help anything). But thankfully, after 2 (TWO!!) trips to the emergency room, I finally got antibiotics enough to start easing my suffering, and got a root canal in the tooth two days later. The panic I felt at having to have a dental procedure done was eased much by my awesome dentist (and his suggestion to take a couple Valium before the appointment); even though I hate having dental work done, I wanted to be free of the pain more than anything. The procedure took 2 hours and 15 minutes (the poor tooth was apparently very bad off), but after the numbing shots I didn’t feel a thing! (It’s oddly great to say the numbing shots were the worst part LOL)

Now I am about 6 days post-procedure, and I am able to eat almost normally again, brush my teeth without yelping, and able to sleep on my left side without discomfort! Whee! (And it’s SUPER nice to not be restricted to pudding, soup, and mashed potatoes LOL)

A Look Back and a Look Forward

Whew, it’s November already! I still have a couple of projects in the hopper for 2016, but here’s what I’ve accomplished this year so far:

Wow, I didn’t think I’d accomplished QUITE that much this year, but it’s been a busy 10 months at WMWorg! March was my most productive month, though–weird!

Looking ahead, this is what I plan for November and December:

Whew, looks like a lot of work (and it probably will be, not going to lie), but I’m excited about it too–I’m not going to actively build any new sites or do any huge revamps in November, so I’m going to be able to do more little tasks around the domain. Check back for updates!

Random Puttering, As Usual

In the days since the release of Version 15, I’ve gone back and edited a few things here and there, such as:

Ahead for WithinMyWorld.Org during this summer (time permitting):

  • Finish my in-progress Eighth Doctor site for the Construction Zone event at Amassment
  • Revamp and rename my faith site (it will likely be relocated to a new subfolder as well)

Stay tuned right here or at @wmworg for the upcoming changes!

Upcoming: Eighth Doctor Fansite

I’m currently hard at work behind the scenes on my Eighth Doctor fansite!

Right now, I’ve gotten two or three articles in first draft form and have gotten some pictures for the layout, so I’m nowhere near done but I’m on the way. My target date for releasing the site is May 14th, 2016, 20 years to the day that the Eighth Doctor movie aired on TV in America, but if I can get it done by the end of May at least, it’ll be great. 😀 So excited!!

Re-prioritizing, Ahoy!

I went through my Projects page and realized that I kind of over-scheduled myself this fall. So, I went through and rearranged, making the page not quite so ambitious–but I’m still going to be releasing a site roughly each month! It’s just that now, my list of sites to do extends far into 2016.

Here are some of the new projects I added:

  • Bingbong (Inside Out) – December 2015
  • The Eighth Doctor (Doctor Who) – May 2016
  • Super Mario RPG (possible) – February 2016
  • Waiting for God (possible) – April 2016

Be on the lookout for these! (Dates may change a bit as life happens, but these sites will happen at some point!! LOL)

Remaining Projects Before v14 Goes Live

EDIT: FINALLY got this new “news blog” style put up–what do you think? It didn’t turn out exactly like I wanted (because CSS is apparently cranky about background colors on “height: 100%;” div layers that scroll…argh). But otherwise I like it! Let me know if the background image is too busy!

Here’s what remains to do at WMWorg before I can upload v14:

  • Finish and upload main domain layout
  • Finish and upload network layout
  • Code and upload guestbook design
  • Write up v14 blurb for layout archive
  • Finish and upload news blog layout
  • Rewrite domain info page
  • Get new guestbook since my old one has been closed
  • Make new admin logo for contact page
  • Link-check sitemap, add new links where necessary
  • Make new button for v14 layout
