Patiently Waiting

I’ve been pretty busy for the past couple of days, mainly with work.  I’m working on a new site now that’s proving to be a bit more difficult to code than I’d originally thought it would.  I’m working on another template that’s so beyond my experience it’s unreal.  I’ve been able to get somewhere with it, I’ve just never had to use so many div layers to accomplish everything. On top of that, I’m waiting to hear from at least ONE of the jobs I’ve recently applied to.  I’m waiting on about 7 design positions and a few clerical ones as well, the biggest being one at the Hospital.  Even though it’s per-diem (call you when they need you) if you have your foot in the door and have your shit together, then you’ll more than likely be on their…

Another day…maybe I’ll make a dollar?

So it’s about 2am and I’m still wide awake, okay so not WIDE awake but I’m certainly too strung-up to really lay down and relax in bed so I can fall asleep. I’m hoping to have a relatively easy night for however long I’m online for. I do hope to get these CSS issues figured out and while I’m in the midst of doing all of that – I’m going to have to get my butt in gear on writing up a cover letter and printing out my resume. I’m looking to take a little trip tomorrow so I can get my name out there some more with companies in the area looking for designers. I found this one position a few towns away (about a 10 minute drive, actually) that are looking for full-time web developers for on-going projects….

Stupid CSS!

I’m have a butt load of trouble trying to get this template up and running.  It just doesn’t seem to want to go right for me.  When margins seem to add up properly, they don’t display right in certain browsers and since I’m so anal retentive about cross-browser compatibility, this seems like it’s going to be a pretty long night for me.  :UGH: Technorati: CSS

Slowly but surely…

I’m coming pretty close to completing the template I’ve been working on.  I still need to get all of the content pages worked in, so that may take me some time.  I’m down-sizing a lot of things so I can weed out all of the boring old-school work and I’m leaving tons of room for all of the newer style templates that seem to be making an imprint on people lately.  The blog template itself will still look like a standard blog page, of course, it’s just going to be so technical looking that you’ll think you’re sitting on CNN.com and not some wimpy blog. I’m looking to join a few blogrolls and some other sites to get my name out there a little more.  At it’s prime this domain averaged 5,000 hits a day and now it’s down to…
