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!

I'm writing for my dad today, because i've realized how closely linked our moods are, even if we haven't lived in the same country in over a decade. My dad and I have always been kindred spirits. Because we feel so deeply for people we love. To no end, really. And both of us have this disillusion that we do everything we can, in our way, to show that love, without realizing how destructive we can be at it sometimes.

Well, the love affair started a few years ago. First, I was crying because I lived in Calgary. Then I was crying because when I made it, I was to be broke from travelling. Then I was crying because if I was gonna make it without being too broke... by the time the festival was over, I'd be broke from how expensive not only the tickets keep getting every year but how ridiculously over-priced (terrible-tasting) libations have become.

I should probably take the time and explain where I stand on this issue. You'll probably find a tweet or two of me saying I'm not a feminist and wanna spit at me because you think I'm anti-feminist. The thing is, I don't think feminism is what most people think feminism is. I think the last couple decades have brought on a new movement, that is not feminism

Summer has been pretty damn great to me, from work, to friends, to beautiful weather and good times. There have most definitely been some downs, but so many more ups. I'm increasingly grateful for the beautiful group of people I now call my extended family. They just bring so much sunshine into my life, it's something worth being thankful for, every single day.

there are so many things that i don't understand. there's a whirlwind in me that i cannot explain. many rooms to explore but the doors look the same. - daft punk, within

I know I said I'd be updating the site soon, but it's summer now, and I have have no will to sit at home do anything. Also, my laptop is slowly dying, so I have even less will to do anything about this. So here's a new post instead of an update.

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.

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.

At a quick glance, you can see how much I use my various social services. The percentages represent how much I have used each type of service over the last 7 days from the time you are loading this page. I haven't added my blog to the "life" box yet, so bear with me because these precentages aren't excatly accurate yet without them. All my feeds can be seen here.
