about me

hello

My name is Amy

aka codepuffin

I’m friendly.  I’m awkward.  I laugh a lot!

I make websites, eat popcorn, binge Netflix (and chocolate) and I really like to bake in my free time.  I’m a nerd who loves glitter and swearing.

I can easily chat for hours, but am also very happy watching the clouds and listening to the wind through the trees all day.  I love the city, but also the bush and so I’m absolutely torn about where to live!

a few of my favourites

  • family
  • animated movies
  • popcorn
  • talking
  • hair colour
  • glitter
  • chocolate
  • animal friends
  • games
  • winning
  • trees
  • baking
  • alone time
  • analogue things
  • naps

I love what I do

creating online things

I am so glad that I get to wake up every morning and stroll through to my lounge to make lovely things on the internet – all without wearing pants!  I get to help other people’s businesses too so that they can also live the life of their choosing.  YAY!  Fuck working for the man! (I warned you that I was sweary.)

I truly love making websites because I get to channel my creativity and also solve problems using logic.

say hello

I love meeting new people, so introduce yourself.  Pop me an email, or if that is too intimidating slide into my DMs on insties.

Amy

What are you doing today?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I'm hardcore chilling and trying to find out where to buy Dylon cold water fabric dye in Durban.  Anyone know?  I want to do some tie-dye with my niblings (gender neutral alternative to nieces and nephews).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • I'm into bridges!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Practical. Beautiful. A feat of engineering.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They link two places and make things easier.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Practical design at its finest.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What do you think's on the other side of this misty bridge?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
P.S. If you have a strange bridge appreciation like me then let's hang out and go and look at some bridges.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • "Lightning doesn't strike twice." Bullshit!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lightning very often strikes the same place twice!  In fact, it is often more likely to strike the same place twice than it is to strike somewhere else.  Lighting goes for tall things and metal things, so those things keep getting struck during a thunderstorm. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Same goes for life. Just because something super rad (or super bad) happens in a certain way, doesn't mean it won't happen in that way again.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We can recreate the perfect environment for success.  Or for failure if we don't learn from our mistakes and put up some lightning rods to draw the strikes away.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you get negative feedback what do you do with it? Cry and move on? Shout and move on? Shout and cry and move on? Or learn, change and grow?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here's to lightning rods and learning from mistakes!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
P.S. how cool is lightning? I just love it!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Do you believe in fate? .
I don't think I do. I think we control our own paths. We steer our own boats. Or we just float down the river and get pushed around and taken along by the tides of life.
.
What do you think about destiny?
