For some reason, in the midst of neglecting my Chinese homework the other day, I started learning HTML and CSS. I've actually been futzing with HTML for more than a year now, since I signed up for a Blogger account and started writing this new-fangled thing called a blog.
Since that strange moment, I've been spending a lot of time (my eyes tell me too much time) moving around bits of code in text files and watching them transform through the magic of interweb tubes into colorful headers with backgrounds and other happy trash, all with the help of HTML Dog.
As far as tutorials go, this site was one of the easiest to follow, and it got me thinking I should try building an actual web page. So I pulled up the url of a friend's magazine and started coding, aiming to recreate something similar and maybe tweak the front page a bit, just for practice. This got boring faster than I expected.
And that led me to discover something far more fun than fixing someone else's unbroken website: breaking (and hopefully fixing) my own.
Which brings me to the point of this post. I am currently breaking my site. I will fix it, even if it means just copying my CSS and PHP files back into their proper place in the template and bringing everything back to fresh-out-the-box newness. Hopefully, something more interesting, functional and pleasant-looking will emerge.
Apologies for the dust.
Where it's due: Credit for the title of this post goes to Nate Green, an old high school friend who offered said advice when my car broke down. It broke down a lot. As for the wicked image up top, that came from Ryan, who made it 'cause he was bored. Ryan rocks.
