Building this website is one of the most daunting things I’ve ever done. (I know you’re probably thinking I have an really unexciting life, but I’m serious.) From the beginning I’ve felt a bit thrown into the foreign land of code figuring out the tenses if you will of HTML and CSS. From the beginning, none of my coding endeavors have been easy and most don’t work the first, second, or third time. It’s been difficult to wrap my mind around how each of the elements relate and connect to each other— what do they say to each other and how do they influence each other. I was hoping by this time in the semester I would’ve hit some some sort of stride by now, but understanding the elements is taking more time than I would like it to. One of the most difficult concepts for me to wrap my mind around and find that my code is often broken is somewhere in the divs. Divs nesting in divs and where they start and end has been the source of many of my woes.
Writing this new language to create a website, I often find myself wishing that there was a way I could draw and design my website in illustrator/indesign and that code would be written, but until then, I’ll continue stretching my perspective and becoming fluent in the coding language.
