Back when I had my original blog, lkvy.com, I made somewhat of an effort to make my website aesthetically pleasing. This was a decade-long struggle for me, trying to keep up with the current webdesign standards using a frightfully slow PC that couldn’t handle a pirated version of Photoshop.
Now, it’s 2018 and I’m using a laptop from 2008, which is around the time I cancelled my original blog. I didn’t feel like rediscovering how crummy I still was at graphic designing using free software on an outdated computer.
Since my coloured art markers weren’t dried-out, I created a logo the old fashioned way: on actual paper. I then taped my masterpiece to my monitor: “This looks good. If only there were a way for others to see this brilliance.”
When you can’t get done what you want to get done, you pay others to get it done. A big thanks to Kristina for converting my rustic hand-drawn logo to a resizeable vector illustration.
Perhaps one day she will utilize the skills *I* have to pay my bills, like fixing bikes. I also have many years’ experience writing customer service emails, and quoting Seinfeld (but not together). Other than that, I have negligible skills. I’ve even just learned that I’ve been sight singing incorrectly all along.
Why would one need to change their approach to sight singing? Why would Yann, of all people, own a book on sight singing, much less one that was co-written by Son of Sam?
I do not consider this book to be the strangest thing Yann owns: that honour goes to his table runners. Yes, plural: he decided that he needed a back-up table runner in case he ran out of time to launder his go-to table runner in time for his next dinner party.
Perhaps he was big on dinner parties before we met, but now that I’ve ruined his appreciation for dinner parties, I have demanded that he get rid of his table runner stockpile AND the sight singing book.
Worst girlfriend ever? Not quite. I am getting rid of my soapstone rasping tools, dried-up glue sticks, and PS2. I can make sacrifices, too!
