When I owned vejc-design I was so happy with my host one.com. There were never any downtime or other complications.
Therefore I chose to use the same host when I bought justframeless. I’m not happy this time though. Since I opened I have had so many problems. Or more correctly, one.com has had problems. There is always something wrong with the server. Last night I tried to fix some of my coding and in the middle of the updates my site stopped working. I couldn’t connect to my FTP and my site wouldn’t show in internet. Have you noticed this sometimes?
I’m so angry with them sometimes. I hate that they are always fixing stuff on the server. I never had this problem before. It’s really weird and really annoying. Hope this will stop soon. It’s not fun when you’re in the middle of an update.
Do any of you use one.com and has experienced the same problem?
Today at school I met a boy I’ve been going to school with for three years. He didn’t recognize me. It is almost five years since we went to the same class though. But I though he’d remember me. I went passed him in the hall twice and I sat at the same table as him during lunch. And still no response. He even looked at me one time. Have I changed that much?
I’ve got bangs since last time I saw him though. Maybe that’s why he didn’t recognize me? What do you think? Do I look different with bangs? I know some other people haven’t recognized me after I got the bangs as well. But I don’t think I look that different.
Because my last icon challenge was so popular I have started a new one. I have made it a little more challenging than the last time. I have also decided to keep it open a little while longer. It will end November 15 and the winner will receive one month free advertising on my site:)
Since it’s soon halloween and the new Twilight movie is comming out in the end of November. I want you to make me three icons, one of Edward Cullen, one of Bella Swan and one of Jacob Black. The icons should somehow be connected to eachother. Click here to read more about the challenge.
Today we had the intro for our fourth task at school. This time we are going to make posters. I think it will be a lot of fun. First we had to sit trough the most boring graphic history introduction. I almost fell asleep. Maybe not so weird since I only got about four hours sleep last night. I never get to bed early I always stay up too late. Not smart at all!
Anyway, after the boring history a famous graphic designer, Are Kleivan, held a little presentation for us. He showed us some of his work and talked about why he had done this and that. It was a really interesting presentation. I got so inspired. Here are some of his work:

My parents were here today. They finally had the time to help me get more settled in the apartment. I’ve been living here for almost four months now, so it was about time. My walls have been so empty. I haven’t had the time or equipment to get anything up on them.
My parent and I made a day out of it. First we went out to a restaurant and then they helped me get some pictures up on the walls and a cute little shelf. What do you think of the result? This is just my sleeping corner though. I have a quite big room.
I just want to get something clear. Many of you have asked my why I make so mean reviews at rev.iew.me. The reason for this is that it’s NOT me. Someone is using my name and my website in a profile at this review site. She has said somewhere that she’s from another country that me though. I know some of you have noticed that.
I don’t like this at all. It is not cool that someone is trying to make it look like me. Does anyone know how to stop this? Anyone who might have a profile there who could help me? Maybe report her or something?
[EDIT] I have talked to the owner of rev.iew.me. She has banned the user and will take a closer look at it later.[/EDIT]
The icon challenge is finished. I have chosen the winners and made the awards. It is always so hard selecting the winners. You all made such good icons. Congratulations to the winners. I will post a new icon challenge tomorrow I think. If I get the time.
As you can see I´ve made a new layout. I hated the last one. I´m not to fan of this one either though. But I just needed to change it. Don´t be surprised if I change the layout again soon. I just can´t get satisfied with the layouts I´m making. Don´t know what it is. I think it has been so long since I´ve been making graphics.
I have to go to bed now, I´m so tired. I´ve been tired all day. I went to bed pretty late last night. I had fun though.
We won! We won! We won!
Did you see the game? It was so exciting! Liverpool – Manchester United. 2-0. I´m so happy!
Hi guys! It has been a couple of stressful days lately. I´ve been working and dealing with my personal life. Last night I was at this beerparty in the backyard at school. It was really fun. But of course, as usual, I managed to drink too many beers:P lol! I´ve had the worst hangover today. And on top of that I had to work today, not a good mix. I thought I was going to puke several times. It went okay though. I bought a coke and some candy to help me trough the day.
I just wanted to remind you that the icon challenge is closing on Sunday, so if you want to join you have to hurry:)
have a good night everyone. I´m going out with some friends now. Bye!
Hey, again I´m at school. I´m so bored.
The teacher is going through our sketches. He is taking ages on every student. Of course we are the last group to get feedback. Which gives me tons of time to update my site. Isn´t that great?
Therefore I have added a new feature to my site; an ask me script. I hope to help you as much as I can. And I will try to answer all your questions. Just remember, I don´t not know everything:P
I have to get back to my group now. We are trying to make a presentation for Thursday, when our final product has to be finished. I´m still really stuck on the task. I hope to get some inspiration today or tomorrow. I have to actually, or else I woun´t have anything to hand in on Thursday.
Here´s a photo of our fastfood-box. hehe!
Hi! I´m at school trying to work with my third task. I hate it. And I have no ideas for it. Stupid fastfood box! grrrr! Sorry. I´m a little mad right now. Tomorrow we have to have two finished sketches and I have about none. FML!
Oh well, over to something a little more fun. I have added a layout challenge to my site. Which I said I would in an earlier post. The first challenge is quite free. The only rule I have is that you have to use a photo you have taken. It can be a photo of you, your pet or just a nice landscape. Totally up to you!

Layout challenge #1
The challenge will end November 8. If you have any cool ideas for the next challenge please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. It is always nice with some input:)
If you´re wondering how my school task is going. Here´s one of the try-out-sketches I´ve made. I think it sucks and the colors is not good. We can only use two colors, but we can mix them and get more colors out of them. But the one I have made here is totally wrong. I hate it. I have no idea how to do this stupid task:(
I tried out something new today. I´m not happy with it at all. But right now I don´t care. I´m too tired to even think.
I wanted to make a layout with typography. At school the other day I read this line: designers are ment to be loved not understood. I thought it was a cool line, that´s why I decided to use it in a layout. I´m sure I will change this layout again very soon. Because it didn´t turn out the way I wanted it too.
What do you think?
I really have to go to bed now. I have to meet pretty early at school tomorrow. Good night!
After positive feedback from you guys, I´ve decided to start up some challenges again. It is so much fun to see what you guys make. I have only started an icon challenge so far. But I will probably open a layout challenge soon.
For this first challenge you have to make an icon of the photos I have provided. Click on the link under to read more about the challenge. Good luck everyone. I´m looking forwards to see your icons:)
Icon Challenge #1
I´m at school eventhough I don´t have to be. My group decided to meet today to work on a little assignment our teacher gave us. We have one letter each and our word is Riot. I got the letter R. When we are done with the letters we are going to put them together like a puzzle. I´m not sure how it will turn out. We had to choose some colors we wanted to use. We chose red, grey and black.
Here´s how my letter turned out. I´m not happy with it though. But I´m not to eager to do another one either. What do you think?
I´ve been thinking. What do you guys think about me starting up some challenges again? An icon challenge and a layout challenge maybe? It would be really nice if you could give me some feedback on this.
I just got photoshop installed on my mac, I´m so happy. Maybe I´ll get the chance to do some more uppdates now and maybe add some more photoshop tutorials. I hope!
