Do you ever feel nostalgic for high school?
I know I do. I dreaded high school when I was there but I did quite a bit of writing then. It was what kept me sane during trying times. Even to this day, I use writing as an escape for life.
Now though, years later, I miss high school. I miss seeing all my friends on a daily basis. I miss the stimulation of learning new things each day.
One of the most memorable things I learned was learning to write HTML (web pages) by hand in Notepad. It’s a lot like writing a novel. You have to write meticulously because one little misstep and all of you code could quit working.
I learned it my junior year in high school and I still use it to this day. I will sometimes sit down and just tinker with code. When I feel nostalgic for high school, I write code.
One thing I stumbled upon in school during learning to code was a website called Dynamic Drive DHTML, specifically the code to make snow flakes drift down your webpage. Now, that’s not all you can do. You can change the code and image and have pumpkins or leaves fall down you webpage.
It took me quite a bit of time the other day because I couldn’t remember exactly where I had gotten that code from but I finally found it. You can find the same code here!
It’s funny how you get nostalgic for some weird things?
It always seems to hit me in the Fall season though. I guess that’s because August is when school always started.
Do you get a feeling of nostalgia at times?
