Well, the interview I had on Monday went spectacular, and of course means I am now officially employed again. Although I still retain the label “freelance designer” I am no longer of the “unemployed” group. I was originally scheduled to start work on Monday the 29th, but the guy putting together my [webdesign] work got sick with strep. Now I’ll start on Thursday May 1st. Not bad at all.

Although this job came at a perfect time. I’ve got a hefty bill that I have to have paid by May 31st. I think it’s a bunch of bullshit, but it’s of my own accord, so I’m dealing with it. My 2 year old cell phone finally took a shit on me. It’s a Samsung D807, and somehow the inner LCD cracked and leaked. I’m not sure how it happened because it didn’t drop once during the day it happened. As such, I ventured out to eBay for a new phone. I was 6 seconds away from winning a Blackberry Pearl for $80, but some little nasty bugger decided to snipe me.

That’s okay because I ended up winning a perfect Blackjack with extra accessories for about $130 (including shipping.) I was skeptical to spend that much on a phone, but with my new job, it’s a necessity. I need to be able to access emails on the go, sync up, and of course, have a phone I can *use.*

Other than that I’ve been trying out for a Halo 3 clan through Army of the Republic. Yes, you read it right. I’m still a fanatic for Halo, and it won’t ever stop. Outside of actually having fun with the game, I’ve met so many awesome people through it, that it’s the one reason why I enjoy it the most. Of course, some of the other websites I’ve come across, like halo3.junk.ws, have also been reasons why I play this game over anything else.

Since I’ve got a few more days until i won’t have much time for myself, I figured I’d spend my hours trying to come up with some decent WordPress themes. I don’t know if I’ll actually create them for free or as premium, but I’m sure something will happen. Oh, and maybe a new design for here.. 😛 Yeah, we’ll see!

For the past few weeks, I’ve had this constant urge to create something new. Not even something specific either. The urge has ranged from baking, to new website projects, and god knows what else. I haven’t really followed through with any of them, but I have managed to get a start on a couple of my ideas that I’ve come up with. The need to create something new has been overwhelming to the point where it’s frustrating to me. I don’t want to have another project to manage, because I have enough already, but I can’t help but want to create something new to either earn profit, or to be the best.

I’ve managed to find a bunch of new scripts that I want to test out. They’ve ranged from a host directory, gaming clan, to a Halo 3 screenshot directory. Some of them I doubt that I’ll ever get around to, but I’ve already put time and effort into the Halo 3 screenshot directory. I got tired of uploading all of mine into a Halo directory, so I went ahead and registered a new domain, and purchased some software to get the job done. Not sure if I really want to get it going to where other users join up as well.

Aside from putting together ideas for new projects, I’ve been trying to keep myself occupied with other work. Design work has been really slow, which is probably the reason why I’m looking for something else to do. Hopefully I can nab in some web design jobs soon, because I’m going to go crazy if I start up another project.

Other than that, I don’t know what I want to blog about here. I don’t want to write tutorials on A or Z; I don’t want to blog about someone else’s differences and shortcomings, but I don’t want to have an empty blog. I need to think up something to blog about because I hate having to bullshit my way to an entry on my own damn blog.
