Catmap 2

I’ve been busy the last few days working on the catmap, and I got the Google Maps API to work the way I want it to! So far, I have 40 pictures, but I still need 60 more for the assignment criteria. It was interesting to look at the different interpretations of cats around the world, and the myths and stories that follow… I’ll finish up with those on the weekend!

INFP

Just worked today, nothing much else!

The Myers-briggs personality test (and many other like it) isn’t based on any real scientific research, but something about personality tests really intrigue me.

Maybe it’s the idea that we can truly understand people and all the complexities and differences that make these tests so compelling. It’s plain satisfying to feel that everyone’s differences has an underlying reason…

But no!! People are more than just 4 letters. It’s a bit of fun, but I think most people’s personalities are fluid and change depending on the environment they’re in and the people they’re with.

Catmap

Today, I tried to do something cool for my upcoming assignment with code.
Unfortunately, being the big noob I am, I couldn’t really figure it out.
I wanted to create a map with pictures overlaid on certain coordinates, and tried to use OpenLayers to do it.
For most of the day, I was figuring out how to use npm and browserify to run packages… I’m happy that I learnt how to use them!

As for the map, I actually did manage to embed it onto the page, but I couldn’t understand how to project a static image onto specific coordinates.
You can take a look here! Not exciting at all since it’s just a map, but it’s better than nothing. 😭

I might try to use Google Maps API instead just because the documentation is easier to read (for me).

Class!

I swear 9am lectures are my worst enemies… Especially when the next class is at 1:30pm!! They should’ve just kept the lecture before class… It’s not the worst thing in the world though, since I usually go to a cafe with my friends in the down-time.

Learning about street posters.

Sitting at the back is fun because I can see what everyone else is distracted by…

Woohoo!

I’m so happy!!!
I finally figured out how to get VSCode to build and push new changes of my Hugo website to Neocities automatically.
This problem took me so long to solve (with a lot of experimentation) because all the tools I found were far too technical for a n00b like me.

So… I’ll give you in a nutshell of how I did it! (Special thanks to Kirby Kevinson on the Penny’s Club discord server for giving me the hint of using GitLab.

Just a work and uni kinda day...

Now that I have a system (kinda) working with Hugo and Neocities, I can focus on just writing my blog! Yay. Today, I just went to work and had classes between my shifts. To be honest, the whole day, I was just thinking about how I can get my website to automatically push itself to Neocities… 😆

I think I might’ve figured it out by using the Github actions: Deploy to Neocities. I’ll update to let you know if it actually works.

Class today was fun… We just played around with inks and the like. Messy, but fun.

Second Post!

I haven’t published the website yet since I’m still trying to figure out how to get the date and images showing properly for the blog…

Edit: I’ve figured out how to do the dates properly! Turns out all my blog posts had to follow the YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss+15:00 (+15:00 is my timezone ahead of CST) in order for Hugo to render it properly.

First Post!

I just migrated my static website to Hugo! This will make it easier for me to do blog posts. :D
