doing nerdy stuff


February 2016

I nearly just had a heart-attack.

I just spent, like, twenty minutes over-turning everything in my room in search of the usb I’ve been using to save all of my class work on, only to find it on the floor near the end of my bed.

Suffice it to say, I’ll be making a back-up copy before the night is over. It was poor-form not to have done so in the first place.

I am such an idiot.



I decided to start going to my Arniskido classes again last night, and I feel like Loki after the Hulk picked him up and slammed him into floor of the Stark Tower several times.


So much pain.

Coding, CSS, and HTML, Oh My!

So, I finally settled on something for my web project and started things up!

I figured, I’d post a screen shot of my web page, because why not?


It sure as hell isn’t finished,but I’m glad that I at least got somewhere in such a short period of time. Especially after I spent so long freaking the hell out about it.

Also, I found out that we were allowed to use templates, and I am furious.

I’m hoping I’ll feel better if I write about it.

I’m not really a diary or journal sort of girl; that’s just not my thing. I mean, sure, I use notebooks when I’m doing my actual writing (stories, that is), but I’ve never been the type to open up and express my feelings.

This isn’t even part of an assignment.

But my Pop lent me his Mac to take to class the other day, and Mr. Mark said, “Once you go Mac, you never go back.”

Naturally, Vance agreed with him.

Because this class is absolutely out of control.

Week 5 (again)

That stupid surprise midterm that wasn’t even a midterm!

Every time I think about it, I get mad!

Week 5 (You already know it’s not Week 5.)

You are now halfway through this course. Is the course what you expected? Is there something more you would like to do in class? What have you liked most in class? Least?

We are well past halfway through this course, but let’s not talk about that.

I can’t honestly say that this course is or isn’t what I expected, because I didn’t really have any expectations for this particular class.

I thought it was going to be boring, because HTML and CSS are what I started coding with. I thought I was going cruise through this quarter without a problem, because I’m honestly a jackass who has no idea what she’s doing.

Like, I would really like to go back in time and kick my own ass. I definitely deserve it.

Week 4 (Except It’s definitely not Week 4. We are way past Week 4.)

Using the blog that you created in Week 1, write a short reflection on what you have learned in class so far. What challenges have you experienced so far?

Gee, golly gosh, prof. I’ve learned so much, I just don’t know where to start.

Sorry, sarcasm is a natural reaction–I can’t help it.
