Next project

As a Drupal step-by-step guide to creating fantastic, responsive, websites quickly, using any of the base themes, does not appear to exist, I believe I will create one myself. But first, I have to get my site out of the water again.

I never thought I would become a programmer, but the Lord has a strange way of taking us where we need to go.

A happier update

My last post, of some time ago, was not particularly happy. To combat that, and before I post something I feel strongly about again, I will post a brief description of the good things that are happening in my life.

LDStorymakers was a huge success. I met and interacted with a number of authors, had a blast, and (I think) helped promote a general good impression about our company. Apparently, we are getting noticed; several authors mentioned to me that they had been in discussions about us beforehand, and many authors told me they had heard positive buzz.

I am now, officially, in my new apartment/office. It's twice (or thrice) as roomy as my last single bedroom, and I no longer have roommates. It is exhilarating to finally have a place of my own.

I recently re-connected with some old friends, which was wonderful; I intend to cultivate those relationships over the coming months. I realized recently how much I value deep friendships; several of my best friends are going on missions very soon, and it has caused me to ponder and re-appraise my approach to friendships and relationships.

Although I missed Saturday, I finished five of the six days of my new workout program. When I get working out, eating correctly, sleeping sufficiently, and working effectively down - hopefully in the next two weeks - look out; I am going to be unstoppable.

In all, there are many things for which I am grateful; many new changes, new beginnings, and new experiences at the moment, but life is moving forward in a positive way.
