Happy Tuesday, y’all! Life has been an adventure lately, especially as my graduate program comes to a close. I can’t believe I graduate with my Master of Arts degree this Thursday! Back in August, the director of the program (and one of my favorite professors) told us, “This will be the slowest and fastest 10 months of your lives.” He wasn’t kidding!
Well, okay, I do have to talk about my thesis project a little bit. Since February, I have been building an educational website about type-2 diabetes for young adults. Building, designing, writing all the content for it… the whole nine yards. I’ll present it on Wednesday at our annual thesis exhibition, where my 30 classmates will be showing off their awesome work, too. Here’s a glimpse of the home page of my project:
On the “blog rebrand” front, I’ve done some work and research toward that. I’ve got my colors and fonts nailed down, which helps in the design process. The domain is mine as well, and WordPress is loaded and ready to go there. I almost changed my mind about using WordPress, but I talked myself back into it. Talking to my blog and Twitter friends about their experiences and getting their advice really helped me commit to my original plan, and to explore my options within WordPress (and y’all, there are thousands). I’ll write more about that learning curve in a later post. But for now, here’s a sneak peek at my new theme. This is not final, but you can expect something very similar to this in my rebrand aesthetic!

What’s exciting in y’alls lives right now? Do you know anyone graduating this year? Are YOU graduating?
