I don’t believe in fairytales, but I want to believe in you and me

So. Instead of studying, I designed a new layout for Sky-Song.ORG. It’s nothing mind-blowingly pretty or new but I’m neutral to it, surprisingly. Generally when I spend a long time on a layout, I begin despising it (hence why I never get anywhere). How do you like it? I’ve also changed the content around a little bit to adjust to the new layout. And if you noticed my ‘maintenance mode’ page that I had for a few hours, I also changed the permalinks since they were pissing me off since they were so ‘ugly’.

Hilariously, I almost forgot Sky-Song.ORG’s upcoming birthday until I had to write a page on it 🙂 17th October 2011 will mark the 1 year birthday for the domain. I’ll be too busy at that time to celebrate it, but I suppose this layout makes up for it 😀

And I hope this layout makes up for me not being here for a while 😀 I’ve got upcoming exams and therefore I won’t be able to post much (as you’ve noticed) or comment much. I’ll still be lurking and maybe an occasional post but I’ve got to focus on my studies. I don’t want any repeats of what happened last semester.

The rest of the post will be about my design process with this layout. I find it interesting to read others – mine’s not so interesting but meh 🙂 Ramblings, images and tl;dr alert.

Thanks everyone for your encouraging comments about the cyberbullying incident! 🙂 I feel a lot better now ♥.

I’m unfortunately back at uni. I have so much trepidation with this upcoming semester. Firstly, because a new semester is always daunting and gets harder with each year. Secondly, I am alone. My best friend failed one of the units last semester 🙁 I only recently found out and she’s devastated naturally. My other friends, I’m not too close with and rather spend time with their boyfriends (hence why I’m not close with them urgh) and thus, I will be cruising this semester by myself.

In other news, I’m sharing some icons I made a while ago. I’ve already shared them with at a LJ icon community that I’m with and I was waiting to try and make a larger bunch to post here. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any time to make a lot more, only adding some Kobato icons.  I’ve also weeded some out – the ones I’m not particularly fond of so I guess it’s about the same amount.

Anyways, it always takes me ages to make a batch, only because I’m really slow at manga colouring :S

Yeah, last minute entry, lol. I wasn’t planning on joining but since I generally now only make coloured icons, I thought , why not? Everyone’s icons are gorgeous so I think I’d just be happy with a participation banner ♥
