I seem to have forgotten the alphabet

I seem to have forgotten the alphabet

Man, this is probably one of those eerie moments that you realize that something has gone wrong. It’s not like we have to write the alphabet out in A-Z everyday, but I was doing it a few times today to check on my handwriting as I’m thinking of picking up a fountain pen (probably a cheap yellow Lamy), and I realized that I was having trouble writing out the alphabet. I struggled to think what came after “q” as my mind was screaming “QWERTY…Q..W..E..R..T..Y”. I think that’s forever etched in my mind. The funny thing is that I only realized that I missed out the “g” in the middle row much later.

 

Not sure if it’s a sign of me getting stupid or the fact that the things they taught me in kindergarten are kinda useless, lol. I need to get these dreams of a fountain pen out of my mind, though I suspect I’ll end up with a fountain pen sometime this week. Maybe I’ll re-learn the alphabet after that.

Some people have pet pigs

pig-pet

I found out today that some people have pigs are pets. Maybe it’s coming from a Muslim country (Malaysia), but I guess I never entertained the idea of having a pet pig. I also found out that some folks came up with piggy banks that look like actual pigs, though I must say I’m still in favor of the Hungry Pig piggy bank I saw at the Singapore Art Museum. Maybe I should get a piggy bank again, as I’m currently storing all my spare change in a plastic pot (yes, with three tiny holes at the bottom too).

I also found out that some people are plain strange.

Site is ready to go live!

Woooo!! I never thought I’d actually get this done, but the site is actually ready to go live!

At this point is still incredibly minimal, but I’ve achieved the basic stuff that I set out to go. At this point, I’ve got my theme installed, got the blog running, photo gallery installed, and a contact page setup. Not too bad for a newbie. Now I’ve got WordPress running as a CMS, yay!

There’s still a long way to go, but it’s the first step that’s the hardest, and I’ve managed to do just that!

Hello Doodle World!

Amazing! I can’t believe I actually managed to create and upload my own WordPress theme! I’m proud of myself!

 

It’s far from finished, but it’s been a great learning experience and I’m looking to further fine tune it. Stay tuned!
