Ri. She's an aspiring designer and artist from the west coast (USA). She has a love for coffee, vintage, photography and crafts. She'd love to go to France, visit the Italian countryside, get lost in the busiest streets of London and find her Romeo in Verona. She's seventeen and running away to Paris with her dreams.
Who am I?
I'm a high school student (a junior to be exact) living in Southern California and after high school I plan on majoring in Pharmaceutical Science before enrolling in pharmacy school to become a pharmacist.
I have one younger brother, zero pets, and a great weakness for Starbucks Hazelnut Frappucino.
I'm huge nerd, as I spend nearly all my time reading, studying or hanging around Neo. C: I have a huge love for all things related to coffee and my dream vacation would be in Paris.
I have outbursts of creativity (like Pushkin and his Boldino autumns) and its during those where I probably create my best layouts and graphics c:
I love gifting and I especially adore designing layouts and graphics for others so my future goal is to open a graphic request site!
Oh, I'm just a girl, trying to find a place in this world...
Can you believe another month has gone by? I feel as if June has just started! Hm, these monthly blogs are becoming quite the regular, I think. Recently, I've had quite the obsession with macaroons
. -waves towards icon- I even requested a macaroon themed button for my portfolio! (It's absolutely gorgeous
, by the way.)
On a slightly different note, I've hit quite a slump when it comes to my Neo-goals. After the AC craze, I've put off getting back on my Neo goals for...quite some time. Somehow, I'm not that motivated to work on avatars, trophies, customizations and the like. Argh. I guess it's nice to take a little break now and then. But hooray on attaining All-Star for the first time! C: There's a positive note in my Neo goals.
However, I do have a new inspiration for graphics. After browsing through the site community and admiring all the beautiful work that button makers, layout designers and artist do...I've been tempted to open a layout request site. I'm still uncertain of my ability to keep up with creating layouts all the time, but I am thinking of giving it a serious shot. As it is, I've offered up my graphic skills in my guild so I've gotten two new projects! A character page base for Kat and a family page for Mickey. We'll see how those pages turn out. Maybe after doing those I'll be opening requests to strangers?
Another month, another blog post! It's June and you know what that means? That's right, RI IS OUT FOR THE SUMMER! -cheers-
RL-wise, my summer plans involve cheer practice (CHEER CAMP AT THE END OF THE JULY!), volunteering at the hospital and completing assorted summer assignments at school (-groans-).
On Neo, however, my June goals revolve mainly around the - that's right - THE AC! -throws confetti in the air-. This is my first time playing the AC and I've taken upon the task of attaining All-Star rank! I've also joined TEAM ALTADOR. To be honest, I was alternating between Shenkuu or Altador then I looked at my username and somehow figured that I looked more suited for Altador. Resplendencie → resplendent → the sun → Altador (?!). That was basically my thought process....
I also recently joined The Neo Project (TNP), a guild focused on account-improvement and portfolios! TNP was where I originally got my inspiration for creating a portfolio and I'm excited to be apart of this guild I've admired for a while.
And now...for a little reflection. As I look back on May, I realize I haven't accomplished many Neo goals. RL took up much of my time during May as I was buried under school projects, final exams and such. But...June will be all about getting that All-Star trophy!
Hooray for my first blog post! It's been a while since I first started this portfolio and I'm quite proud to see how far I've come. While coding this layout, I've experimented with fonts, tables, color schemes and all sorts of coding that I've never done before. It's been a project in learning and I think I can say this is my favorite layout I've ever made (even if it has no graphics)!
It's now May and as I look back on April, I'm filled with a sense of pride and accomplishment. I reached 250 avatars on April 2 and brought Shalie home (on May 1st) after trading my shadow draik for her. Aurie was morphed into a draik and painted desert on April 4th after months of saving up the NP.
In RL, I've set myself on the task of achieving a perfectly flat stomach with my new workout routine (oh, and diet too, I guess). Hmm...let's see how long this fitness motivation of mines last. We'll get back to this at the end of the month.
Graphic/coding-wise, my latest great project (as I've deemed this portfolio near complete) is Cherue's petpage! Cherue is my aisha (who will be painted white in two days) and her petpage should soon evolve into an elaborate petpage. With Cherue, I plan to exercise my writing/drawing skills and work with a more graphic-based layout. My goal by the end of June is to finish Cherue's petpage and be as proud of it as I am of my portfolio layout.
On one final tangent...yay for a shiny new trophy! Attained a silver trophy on Typing Terror on Scores Reset Night. -cheers happily-
This is a pickup place for all the graphic requests I've filled. Temporary until I open a graphic request site.
