I have the PHP/HTML/CSS know-how already. I’d probably start from an existing theme, or be more adventurous and start from scratch. There are a few themes that are a couple years old that I like, but they either need to be updated to support widgets or have valid CSS/HTML to be a WordPress theme. It would probably be a better free time activity than video games. So if you visit the site one day and it’s unbelievably ugly, don’t worry, it’s just me having fun.
I might take a vote one which theme I should base use as a starting point, if that’s the route I take. Also, if my current theme looks weird, do a full refresh of the page. I updated it yesterday, and it changed a bunch of stuff, mostly for the worse. Thus the need to manage my own theme.
