These past few days I’ve been trying to transfer all of my files for thenexthorizon.org from my old host to my new host and it’s just been a nightmare. I’ve literally just wanted to pull my hair out. Everything transfers smoothly except my images. I uploaded the images to the server and then imported all of my WordPress files and attachments. It took forever for the attachments to recognize the images and connect them, so that took several attempts just to get that to work.
So I have my images and they’re loading in WordPress, but they will not attach to the pages. So I have 1000+ pictures that are just sitting there, unattached, and I’ve no idea what to do. I’ve tried clearing everything out and just doing it again, wondering if everything in the import just didn’t upload correctly, but everytime it has the same result. I don’t want to have to go and attach each individual image to the page it needs to be attached to manually because that will take, oh my gosh, I don’t even know how long.
I just want to say screw this travel blog because it’s given me nothing but issues.
Other than eating, sleeping, and working, all I’ve been doing is trying to get stupid travel portfolio/blog working. I don’t even know what to do anymore. I’m almost to the point that I want to give up. I feel like I have to get it done now because it’s taken so long already and I know that quite a few people were looking forward to it, but it’s just been stressing me out. It’s something that’s really not worth stressing over, but because I’m a perfectionist and everything has to be running smoothly or else I worry, I’m stressing.
I went to see my dentist today for just a regular cleaning. They told me the usual: you need to floss. And like always, I probably won’t.
My wisdom teeth are coming in, which I am already scared as hell about. I’ll admit it, I am The World’s #1 Wuss. But it scares me even more because my dentist has to have back surgery and will be out for probably six to eight months, depending on the surgery. I have to have my wisdom teeth taken out in a month.
So there’s a different dentist that has temporarily been filling in but I think he’s eventually going to take over the practice. He’s pretty fresh out of college, but he feels comfortable enough to take mine out, he just won’t sedate me.
Which is not okay. I don’t care what they have to do, I want to be out; if they have to hit me over the head with a hammer to knock me out, then so be it.
So I have to see an oral surgeon for them to sedate me. The doctor that took out my mom and dad’s wisdom teeth is still in practice, so we’re going to try and get an appointment set up with him near the first of July. I just need to talk to my manager at work about when the best days to request would be.
I’m getting shaky writing about it, so I’m going to go get A Clash of Kings, and read for a while. I’ve been really falling behind with my goal of 52 books this year, so now’s a good time to pick that back up.
