Another Attempt of Blog Rearrangement

The idea of having a comfortable working space with personal wifi at home in Bekasi somehow got me excited and wanting to be more productive; to write better, in quantity and quality. So last week I installed a new theme (still from Elma Studio) which actually looks just like the previous one. I’ve been trying to rearrange the menu, widgets, categories and tags. It sounds easy but it’s indeed tricky, especially when you have 745 posts (4081 comments until October 10, 2015) which are equal to 12 years of archive. The thing is, I’ve been through different eras of blogging (tag board era, cute pixel gifs and 88x31px banner on sidebar era, until now everything is responsive and retina ready, uh oh!) and life stages (staying-up-late-for-football-matches era, unstable-teenage-hood era, or OMG-I’M-SO-MUCH-AN-ESOTERIC-YET-BRILLIANT-FRESHMAN-IN-THIS-CAMPUS era) with various style of writing and random interests that changed from time to time. I had many categories and am about to create even more in the future, so I guess I need a neater categorization. I merged some categories, turned some into …

What I’ve Been up to Lately: So-Called Life Balance

It’s been quite a while since the last time I wrote something here. Well, there’s a good news I kept telling everyone through almost all of social media platform I’m using, except here: my illustration is officially on greeting cards and for sale in UAE! Actually it started when Mariam from Hibr Design mailed me and asked if I would like collaborate and draw for her more ‘cute and childish’ collection. I drew 4 illustrations and she turned it into 3 greeting cards and a pack of stickers accompanying each card! They are available offline in some local stores and florist. You can also buy it online through Glitz Store. Still related to my illustration and design, a few weeks ago I decided to simplify my portfolio and keep it straight forward. I’ve also been spending my after-office-hours of last couple of weeks drawing and designing for a future project related to kids & babies stuff :3 (will spill more later!) More over, I’m currently also working on a book illustration. Please wish me luck …

Exciting Things Ahead

This post is actually a test for the new activated theme because somehow the menu and sidebar of the previous theme didn’t work. Strange and disappointing because I kinda love the theme. Well, I guess, after almost 13 years of blogging, people would reach the point where they don’t care that much anymore about the theme as long as people can read what write and get the point. Yes, there I am. Anyway, a quick update on life. After holiday, I still have quite a lot of exciting things ahead. Or, well, I’m creating some of them. Work in the office is now interesting as now I’m in study team after almost 4 years being assigned for operation A bought me new Kindle and at the same time I bought a couple of interesting books from the previous trip, so yeah, another stack to read B-) Me and Naya are collaborating. How does it sound? ;) Wish us all luck! Insya Allah I’ll do illustration for another book. My second. Bismillah :) Instagram account for …
