Now, I’m not very good at HTML programming. I took a few classes in school, it wasn’t very informative, mostly they just made us design the layout on an image processing program, chop it up and import to a web design program.
There was very little code we had to actually look at. They didn’t teach us to solve problems, just to replicate one solution to one problem.
So I don’t know much about making websites.
A lot of the time I copypaste code from other sites and tweak it with my HTML knowledge and information on the internet. A lot of the time I don’t know what the bits of code do until I get it wrong.
It’s a learning experience, I enjoy making it this way rather than buying or downloading web design software to wrestle with.
When I was updating the layout of my front page with my HTML knowledge upgrades since the last layout, I wanted to use CSS. So I copypasted some CSS.
And I got really confused with the <div>s and <table>s, they just didn’t seem to be doing what I wanted them to do. After looking at my code carefully I realized the tags weren’t nested properly.
One tag is supposed to contain both the opening and closing tags of the thing inside it, but I had one end of a table beginning inside a div and ending on the outside. My table jumped to the end of the page and made a home for itself on the very right of it.
I changed my <div><table></div></table> into <div><table></table></div> and it started working.
I’ve noticed that this is parallel to how doing chores and other tasks works too. Often I start a bunch of things and forget to make sure the tasks I started get ended and nested in an orderly fashion.
When I open task tags without closing them, the equivalent of THIS happens.
If I shower without ending it with a hanging my towel to dry tag, sleep without closing it with a bed making tag, eat without ending it with a dishwashing tag, things get out of hand fast just like on our sewing site example.
Everything starts feeling unproportionally difficult once you have too many starting tags without enough ending tags in the proper order.
Every time your life ends up feeling like the sewing site, try and check your source code for any tags you can close. Whenever possible, try ending what you started before you start the next thing. Do one thing at a time.

This is just one page of an entire notebook I doodled back in 1988 or 1989 when I was 9 or 10. Hopefully I’ll get motivated enough to scan more notebooks, there are plenty of them.

there was a time when i was seven or eight when i stopped drawing humans and cats (that’s all i was about) and started drawing those kind of things. the top one was inspired by la piscine de roubaix (click to see it’s really beautiful), a museum set in an old swimming pool, in the north of france. i drew this for several months, then went back to humans and cats. it was really interesting.
Feeling good about my body
I’m weary of this life of a being a traveler on social media sites, I built a home for me and my thoughts and words.
