When I found out this week that we would be having to you html, I was super confused. I thought “this is an English class, not a computer class!” I felt really uncomfortable with the idea. I mean, I haven’t worked with html since seventh grade! And when we were setting up our personal web space, and mine kept not working, a fire of hatred toward all technology ignited in my soul, despite the fact that it was actually me that was screwing things up, not the computer. As the people around me might have noticed from my grumbling, I was not a happy camper.
However, when my web space finally got started and I began to apply the html, my mind had a sudden change in gears. Many of the things that I had learned in seventh grade came flooding back to me. I remembered that I actually enjoyed fooling around with effects, transforming a plain piece of web space into something interesting and fun. I felt a rush of satisfaction when I successfully got a phrase to roll across the page using the “marquee” effect, and my success only made me want to pursue my options more. Now, I am honestly kind of excited about the task ahead!
