I came to a realization that I am right brained.
Here is the home page to the website I'll be working on for the next few weeks. After more than five hours, this is how the design turned out. For the most part, I've edited to how I've envisioned the site to appear. The opacity of the menu buttons is where I'm still defeated, but I'm hoping I can find a way to fix this minor issue. Maybe when I'm done with all these projects, I'll also redesign my blog as well.
