What is Nuage?

My previous version of erratik.ca was basically a big fat cloud of information. And to a degree, this still is, but with a lot more to it. Almost everything on this site is created through third-party services and fetched from herein.

Design and Dev Updates

I don't do much design anymore because well, I'm not very good at it. But I still participate in communities like Dribbble, Forrst and LoveDsgn.

The Redux

I don't blog enough. I just don't. I used to, when I had a website that worked and it was fun to post stuff and have comments and whatnot. But yeah, that hasn't been the case in years. Not until now!

So I did my Confoo presentation and it went super well!@#

But now all I want to do is get back to personal work coding, so I'm working on some kind of new design for this site and thinking up some CSS planning, etc. I'll just leave it at that. I don't really wanna blog until I have something to blog about, so until then, enjoy the half broken website.

- hearts, Tay!

Someone equated the process of the ending of my previous relationship as a bad SVN merge. Some things were fixed on either side, independantly, but every time we went to merge the branches, there was some kind of red text about conflicts being marked as "unresolved". And the thing with conflicts, is your best option is usually to "resolve using theirs" or "resolve using mine". The super involved "merge conflicts" option is only viable when the person merging and the one who changed code are both present and can agree on how to merge said conflicts.

So I'm not quite sure what to say. I haven't had time to touch this website's vagina in so long, it's ridiculous. And much like my own, it's kinda full of cobb webs. Sexy, eh?! So yeah, let's not delve into that but I guess I can update the proverbialyou as to what's been happening in this little ol' life o' mine.

This wind that's been blowing has been a little cray. Just started my week and I have a million things to do. I finally got my stuff from Calgary, started really moving into my mom's house, sifting through the million things I really didn't need to bring back here. Like, really, Tay?! Did you need to pack up your dry goods?? Redonculous. Aside from that, work, shows, parties and more work.

October 25, 2012

I have so much to do these days, I barely have time to think about how busy I am. It's good! but it's also starting to affect my immune system. the nose is starting to run, the throat is starting to itch, the dry cough is setting in, my friends. Probably all due to how much I am over-working myself.

Karma seems to finally be paying off. With all the shitty things that have happened in the past year in my life, my karma is finally turning around, you guys! I love my new job, my hair totally fell out from the sickness I've had the last couple weeks but it finally feeling like it's ready to pick up where it left off. I am still flat broke but that is about to change with payday looming on on the horizon. I bought some new boots and a new pair of Jeffrey Campbell shoes, went to a couple live shows, and have tickets to more! 

October 06, 2012

Since the debacle which has been the last week or so of my life, the dust seems to be settling and leaving room for some good times, friends, drinks and eats. I started my new job yesterday and had the most stellar day and night I've had in a long time. Obviously, there are still quite a few kinks to work out on the emotional and physical side but I think I'm finally getting to feel back at home in my beautifully colorful hometown. 

October 04, 2012

One word to describe my transition back to my hometown of Montreal: tumultuous. It's been exactly one week since I've been here and a fucking lot of shit has happened. A couple stints in the hospital, followed by some severe anxiety and depression to boot, a lost rental security deposit, failure to commence work on the projected day, a quarrel with my sister and a trip to NYC I have to pass on. Oh and a cat that refuses to leave my room, shit on my bed because she's angry about moving, and the 15lbs I worked so hard on putting back on, gone. In one week.

September 17, 2012

It's getting really close to departure time from Calgary. I leave next Wednesday, at 6:45pm, with my cat Kaya, two suitcases and my most needed electronics in my carry-on. I started packing my boxes last night, to leave myself enough time to neatly pack and not do the usual throw-everything-in-random-boxes moving technique. I scheduled the pickup for my furniture to be moved across the country for next Tuesday, so I need to be done by Thursday night to account for my last weekend in Calgary, which will no doubt be messy.

August 28, 2012

I remember when I moved to Calgary, and I was so ecstatic to go start a new life in a new city, with new people and a fabulous new relationship. This is usually how moving to another city goes for most girls in their early twenties. Most of the time, the relationship fizzles. Mine flourished. For a time. But I've come to that point, where I can't put my next foot forward anymore. I had an epiphany last week and handed out one single resume. It came back with an amazing job offer. In Montreal.

"My love is ashes at your feet, I turn to go, in defeat." 
I'm slowly coming to the sad realization that what I thought was an amazing relationship with a few hiccups was actually a huge fucking joke, *queue the fake audience laughter*. The only way I can think about it is to laugh at it. Really. I invested so much of my time and emotions and everything else I didn't have to give.
