Last week we all got our website domains. Here’s mine. Right now it’s just a blog for this class. I’m still thinking of a purpose for the site aside from that though. Lately, I’ve been browsing different themes & plug-ins the internet has to offer. May make some posts about music I’m listening to & games I’m playing or figure out how to set up a Twitter feed. I don’t know. At some point, in a few years, I’ll convert it into a professional site to show potential employers/ clients.

I had no idea I’d ever blog anything but I’m looking forward to learning my way around WordPress.
Something I’ve been into lately is lookin’ up videos of the bands I like. Thanks to sites like YouTube, their live shows are super accessible
like this one I missed in June,
& this one I missed in 1980.
