Celebrate The Small Things: 6 February

Strawberry Cake

  • I af5f01-vik-smallthings2ttempted to bake a valentine’s themed strawberry cake. It might not look particularly neat, but it turned out to be quite tasty. Starting to gain a little more confidence in my baking abilities :P.
  • I started to learn how to use Ren’Py (a visual novel engine) – It’s really easy to get started with actually. I’d been meaning to learn more about this for a while and as I’ve been really into visual novels and life sims recently I remembered that I wanted give it a try. As these games involve a good combination of art, writing and programming it might be quite fun to have a go at sometime.
  • I went to see Mortdecai and it was really funny. Can never have too much Johnny Depp of course. So many films I want to watch at the moment, I don’t think I’ll get the time to see them all.
  • My boyfriend is taking the next couple of weeks off over Valentine’s day, so we’re going to take a break and spend lots of time together.

About wallcat

I have a strong passion for computing. In particular programming for which I am able to use a variety of languages including C++, Visual C#, Blitz Basic, Actionscript 2.0, Python and Lua. I also enjoy web-design and have some knowledge of HTML/CSS, PHP/SQL and Javascript. As well as programming I have a strong background in art and enjoy drawing in my spare time. When I’m not sat at my computer I like to keep fit by going to the gym or using my exercise ball.

      Thanks, I’ve been looking forward to it for a long time. Yeah I hadn’t heard about Ren’Py until after looking up one of my favourite developers of visual novels. It’s quite fun to play with.

    That cake looks really yummy! I’m glad your BF will be taking time off and spending it with you during Valentine’s Day. I hadn’t heard of Mordecai. I’m woefully out of the loop… Have a lovely weekend!

    Your cake looks better than some of my attempts. I’ve learned that taste is all that matters. I’ve also learned that I do best when I make cakes that are plain in appearance and focus solely on flavor.
