That is, 3 years of journaling absence from here.
And there have been a lot of changes too. I've gotten a lot more involved in building sites and trying to make my way to have web dev as my career. It's been way too long of a wait already.
My latest project that I opened is a "creatives" blog called The NINPOJineous. It is a journal of my creative journey, and I'm not just talking about art and graphics. I'm also talking about web design and development too, because in a way, they're pieces of art too.
That'd be it for now. Maybe I'll write again here sometime in the future.
I've been focusing all my daily blurbs on my blog - http://adriatastic.adrimarie.us - which is why I've neglected the journaling here. As a matter of fact these past few months I have been more focused towards my writing, rather than the art stuff (except when I'm designing website layouts).
Another Happy New Year, by the way!

But I must move on and utilize this account, somehow.
So, the latest web theme that I've finally come up without using any pre-created themes. My first "graduation" from Wordpress-powered pre-created themes. Somehow, it feels wonderful as a designer to finally--- after what, 2 years now? LOL--- that I've finally figured out how to display my work that also presents something personal about me at the same time.
Gone are the days of childish, immature-ish BLUEDETTE. Hello ADRIMARIE.us!
... or at least, I've been trying to unleash it. In fact, my parents were even "forcing" to unleash it out of me. They've tried it with my siblings before and they're just way too "American" for them to even utter a single word of "oo" or "hindi." Just to be fair, the only Tagalog words they ever murmur on a daily basis at home are "po," "ate" and "kuya." They only call the older cousins "Manong" and "Manang."
So, another last-minute New Year's Resolution that just added recently was to learn Ilocano, at least the basic gists of it. Growing up, the only Ilocano words/phrases I learned from the parents and the family were counting from 1-10 (
