This is it!

Well…It has finally arrived (far too quickly might I add) for me to leave the University as a member of staff =(
And then, as of 12.30 on the 4th June, I will no longer be a student here either.
Wow…it’s like the end of an era!!! 3 years has just flown by!

So this is my final post.
It’s been a good year working at the Uni, and I hope to take everything I’ve learnt from my time here to wherever I may be going next (I haven’t got a clue as of yet, all I know is its Leicester)…could be interesting…

Let’s Go!!

A review of my time with html

I don’t really like it…at all.

It’s too difficult and I’ll never be able to read it…ever.

Although, Tizag did help me out in getting a webpage started. The only problem there was I copied and pasted the codes it told me to and then I saw what the codes turned into. I didn’t really understand what they were and what they did. I find it very hard to grasp. There’d be times where I thought I was getting it and then I’d have a go at changing the codes and everything and it wouldn’t do anything! So, I don’t like it because I can’t do it!
Even when I used Sharepoint and it shows you the html codes above the normal text, I couldn’t fathom out which went with what…apart from the line break code, I know that one! Sharepoint was pretty fun to use though!

So there it is. There’s my review.

Another Day and More HTML

I’m still finding it quite difficult to get my head around it the more I read into it. At the minute I’m reading about formatting elements, and I’ve just read about creating lists…ordered with numbers, ordered with letters, ordered with roman numbers, unordered with squares, unordered with circles,definitions!
The first few pages I look at are ok, then it goes into telling you to put line breaks everywhere and how to align text and how to get it to do this and this and this…arrrggghhhhh arrrgggghhhhh arrggghhhh!
I’m doing it aswell. It tells you to use notepad and to copy and paste html codes from the website into notepad and then to open it in a web browser. Yeah, ok, thats pretty simple…but I’m still trying to fathom out what they mean and why they’re there and what they do!
I will get it into my head, I will, I will, I will.

Another thing that really bothers me is the student elections. The bed sheets and posters make the whole university look really tacky, its not nice to look at. Especially now I have to look at my housemate’s face everyday I walk into the main building. There’s a reason I hate going home, because he’s there, and now he’s all over campus…I can’t get away from him!! That may seem like the most horrid thing someone could ever say about a person, but believe me, if you met him, you’d feel the exact same way!

The Common Cold

Also known as: (viral upper respiratory tract infection (VURI), acute viral nasopharyngitis, acute viral rhinopharyngitis, acute coryza, or a cold). It is a contagious, viral infectious disease of the upper respiratory system, primarily caused by rhinoviruses, (picornaviruses) or coronaviruses.

And I have it! Its horrible, its snotty, and its ridiculously inconvenient. It makes you sneeze at the exact WRONG times, e.g. in a lecture room full of students in the middle of a lecture right when you need the name of a case, or when you’re having a one-to-one with your tutor and you have no tissue at hand, it makes your nose run constantly, and the most awful sound you can possibly make is coming out of your nose!

My process on learning HTML is verrryy slow. Its complex, confusing and c…c…c…complicated! In all honesty I have absolutely no idea what to do with it all. I’m viewing the source on nearly every webpage I look at and I’m just like…eh?! It reminds me of crazy alien writing that you might see in films. Kind of like when people go exploring and they come across all of the wall markings. The only difference is, someone is normally able to read them…I’m NOT that person!! Oh my goodness me…

Learning HTML

Hmmm…slightly confuddling but there we go!
I’ve had a little look around and I’m going to start a tutorial on Friday.

Had a lovely little tattoo on Saturday. It hurt like Hell!! I will never ever ever have another one on my back.
It reads: ‘The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return’ and its origin is brilliant! (only just thought to look it up though!)
I thought it was from the film Moulin Rouge (well it is) but it was originally from a song called ‘Nature Boy’ by Eden Ahbez which was used for the film Moulin Rouge. I bet most of you already knew that!
