About


Greetings Earthlings!

Curious about this site, eh? This is just another random blog site of just another nerd.

Hi! I’m Erika Thea. Call me Erika. Call me Thea. Your choice. I will not say my age but since I am Asian I look younger than my actual age.

I started to write blog entries in Multiply about my daily life in college and ran a small online tees shop. ~~ BORING STUFF ~~ But when I graduated, I realized that I should be organized and have a tiny space in the web. I was sniffing around Wordpress for some time but I don’t find PHP interesting enough so I just keep a Tumblr account which is something that I could not brag about. “I have a Tumblr account. MEH.”

Being in the IT/Software industry added pressure and at the same time inspired me that I could create my own - whatever I need - blog, shopping cart, planner, etc.

Why just now? I am lazy and have a short attention span. I had a hard time balancing my life and work. After 4 years, I decided to take a break and just now I can concentrate on making one of my “Happy Projects”.


How I Made This Site

I googled it!

My main objective in creating this space is for me to upgrade my skillset. So, I decided to use Jekyll because this is just a static site. I use Twitter Bootstrap for the front-end to make the site responsive. I stumbled upon Skrollr and used it to achieve some simple effects or animations.
