Coding is like a Spoiled Child

Well I find myself again, pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to make certain code to work.

And really my issue is with inheritance of CSS. I had a <header> with an <img> then a <p>, and then 3 more <img>s. I had them all in the same selector. I wanted the first <img> to be to the left, the <p> next to it, then the other 3 <img>s to the right. Easy? No. The 3 <img>s where inheriting the style from the first <img>, and no matter WHAT I did it wouldn’t stop.

I FINALLY on a whim was like, lets put these 3 <img>s into there own <div> under the <header>. BOOM. MAGIC.  I only figured this out after putting it away for a while. I dislike stopping when I am in a grove; I just like to get things done when I am working on them. So here are some sites I have been working on:

Also I finally picked up a small sketchbook and I am gonna MAKE myself draw in it at least once a day. I need, need, need, to get back into the habit of drawing. I use to fill up a sketchbook at least once a month, and since I started working I lost that habit. I have lost so much quality and detail. One of these days I need to take some sort of anatomy class or something. But anyway here she is:

Wow, just wow. Learning HTML and CSS is amazing.

When I was going to college the first time around, I loved math because of the instant gratification it gave me when I completed a problem. HTML/CSS has become my math! I am so excited.

I got home today and I was almost emotionally exhausted because I feel like I am using a part of my brain that is out of practice so to speak.

I am learning so much, and things are just flowing so nicely. I am ready to build awesome websites!

Here are a few snapshots of the types of things I am building now. It is all pretty basic but I can only get better!!

Again, really basic stuff, and some of it is pretty silly! I am having SO much fun!

Till next time!
