A Woman's Power

I’m told that I’m very open about my thoughts and feelings when I write. I guess that’s true and I guess I don’t know how else I could possibly write. When a friend of mine looked through my posts on Reddit, that’s what he said about a specific comment. Here’s what I had written:

“I think people have largely forgotten the value of being truly emotionally intimate with one another. I, as a woman, enjoy casual sex and dressing as provocatively as I want, but that doesn’t mean I don’t crave and want genuine closeness. I want a man with whom I can be intimate in more than just the physical sense; I don’t want money nor the absurd, self-sacrificial devotion that the media perpetuates as a romantic relationship. Is that really that much of a risk? Don’t men crave that too? Casual sex is fun, but have you ever had sex with somebody you truly love? Shit hits different, bro.”

What is love without touch?

(A Ramble about Tinder)

We’re in a pandemic right now. It seems like everybody knows that. I’m in Queens, located in New York City, believe it or not– that’s for y’all Manhattanites that love to hit me with the, “Queens isn’t New York City”. The city is nearing 1,400 deaths from the virus, with nearly 48,000 cases overall. My parents aren’t really letting me out of the house, and I’m kind of okay with it. I know I wouldn’t be very good with social distancing otherwise.

All my friends know that I’m fascinated by Tinder. It’s particularly weird right now, because we all know we’re not supposed to be meeting up, but of all possible dating apps, apparently Tinder is the most popular one at the moment. I thought Tinder was the hookup app, no?

Don't know much about coding ii

Now that we’ve created a website for you to play around with in terms of coding, the world is your oyster! Well, it always was from the start, but now you have the opportunity to learn so much! I’ve always though a website is like a home… you step inside, and immediately you make judgements, whether conscious or subconscious. All the pretty stuff you see on a website, from the setup to the colors to the sizes of text, is all done in CSS, or Cascading Style Sheets. All the text and formatting (bold, italics, underline, etc.) is done in HTML. HTML also provides additional information for the website, specifically in the <head> tag, which gives a site its title, icon, and additional metadata. Now, let’s get messy, baby…

Movie Recommendations

My friend got dumped recently so I made them a list of movies that they could watch to occupy themselves. I think we all need something to occupy ourselves nowadays, considering the lockdowns, social distancing, and quarantines. Staying home is boring. Here are some movie recommendations from me. They’re mostly old movies, but I like old movies.

Don't know much about coding

Most tech blogs are pretty intimidating and only give you a snippet of what you’re supposed to do. I love my handmade website, and while services using pre-built website templates and drag and drop elements have become increasingly popular, I think they’re boring and limiting. They slap their brand all over your own personal site, and if I were you, I wouldn’t be a fan of it. I think creating a website using your own CSS and HTML is a fun, expressive way to introduce somebody to coding, so here, I’m going to show you how to do it! Note that it’ll be static, so the pages won’t change between user visits, but that’s perfect for a blog or photo gallery because in most cases, you wouldn’t even want that to change! I’ll be linking websites to specific terms if you’d like to do further research. Honestly, a lot of coding is just knowing how to look up the right thing on the web to find the solution to your problem.

This is a basic introduction to creating a website using Github pages (which is what I use at the time of writing this), and while you can use their how-to, I’d like to think mine is a little bit more human.
