Developing a Tumblr Theme

I’m developing a Tumblr theme as a way to force myself into writing clean and efficient code (please don’t look at this blog’s source code, PLEASE).

My highlight of the new lunar year is my new cutout boots, and also red and gold nails. Just as planned!

I’m so interesting. Read more…
