Hello there.

Thanks for checking out my blog.

My name is Marilyn and I am a VCD major at Stevenson University. But on to the interesting stuff.

I was born and raised in Maryland; Not in Baltimore County, but in Prince George’s. That makes me a part of the DMV. So even though I live in-state, it’s a pain getting back home from school since the Baltimore and DC metros are not connected (they should be). I’ve been interested in graphic design since 2006. Back before I had Photoshop, I was doing the best I could on Microsoft Paint (oh, the struggle). Some of my hobbies include video editing and Photoshopping pictures of celebrities. My video edits focus around mostly these celebrities: Aaliyah, Bow Wow, Chris Brown & Rihanna. I currently have over 50 videos spread out on 3 different YouTube accounts: Skibop, SkibopDaSequel, and the most recent account Skibop3x. As far as Photoshop edits go, I love doing photo manipulations of celebrities. Basically, I take two separate images and join them together to make it look as if they were taken at the same event. My current obsessions right now: kdramas and kpop. Yep I’m about that Korean life. I wish Stevenson offered it as a foreign language class. But anyways, that’s enough about me…

About Web Design I…

What I hope to learn in Web Design I is how to write HTML. I figure that web designers memorize all of the syntax needed for composing a website. I want to be able to do that. To be honest, I’m a little intimidated by HTML because of the way it’s coded. I’ve worked with CSS in the past, and it’s straight forward. The pairs of tags are identical. So if you start with {column}, you end with {column}. With HTML, you must add a forward slash to the end tag and that’s easy to forget. So I know I’ll struggle with that, but I hope that I’ll be able to remember by the end of the semester.
