In more recent times I’ve been getting back into origami, regularly folding cranes and lucky stars; small, meditative pieces that help clear the mind and relax an individual in the stress of the day. However part of me wanted to get back into something a bit more complex that would also require an abundance of patience.
I use to haunt the /po/ board on 4chan, never posting but just skimming for interesting models and saving them to my computer.
Time to break the silence that has fallen over this blog. Some pretty dark things happened a few months back, stuff that hurt me badly and severely harmed my mental health. I’ve moved in with my Dad again, back in my old haunting grounds in East Perth. It’s been really helpful and freeing and I’ve started to get better now. I’ve lost a heap of weight, started gaining confidence and feel like I’m connecting better with people.
So I realise I haven’t written much personally about me and I think that could potentially be a good thing. We often turn to our diaries and blogs in times of hurt or hardship and thus they can paint a negative picture of our lives to the casual reader, despite the potential realities of the situation being quite different. To this end I’ll try and refrain from posting stuff about my personal life too often and I will aim to (no promises though) even include positive posts about the happenings in the meatspace I inhabit.
Alright, I finally took the plunge and dove properly into Hugo and used it to set myself up with a new personal website. In doing so I also decommissioned my Dropplets and Ghost blogs, porting the content into this new static site. Has been a lot of fun, really glad I got into it and now I’m looking at every problem as potentially solvable with static site generators.
Also got some movement on ButWhatWillPeopleDo.
