New Website

In last class we learned to create a WordPress website. Even though we were having many technical difficulties, we were still able to create our own website. It’s really cool and exciting to have your own website which could also be used as portfolio. In my website i will be posting my blogs and design works such as gif, website, photo effects, tutorials e.t.c. I also want to learn to customize my website by using css and html.

My website is but it’s still under

At last i picked Elijah Wood because he plays as Frodo Baggings in Lord of the Rings series. I grew up watching the movies and it’s one of my favorite movies to watch. Mostly I like the animation and the storyline of the movies.

Here is how it looks before and after the effect:


gif animation

I created this League of Legends gif because i enjoy playing this game and the illustration looks really cool.

Since i couldn’t finish making a gif during class, i had to go home and create one. I tried to find photoshop online but it was very costly. So i ended up searching for apps similar to photoshop. After doing some search on the web i finally found an app called GIMP. It has most of the feature that photoshop offers. On top of that the app is free!!

Here is the link to download GIMP for free:

what makes me happy?

I have few hobbies which makes makes me feel better. I enjoy playing sports such as volleyball and basketball, but soccer is my favorite. It has been my favorite sport since i was a kid. I enjoy both playing and watching the game. Im excited about the world cup which is happening on 2018 in Russia, where top 32 nations compete for the championship. This happens every 4 year.

I also enjoy traveling and spending time with my friends and family.
