~ happy birthday, avocadolite ~

23 February 2002

some time in 1998, ari bought Learn HTML in a Week book. he read it for two days and on one Saturday afternoon, he taught me HTML…. i learned 8 tags: html, head, title, body, a href, img, p and font. that night, my first homepage was born. the address was http://www.lehigh.edu/~tsk3 and it was 100% made on MAC. later on, that homepage moved to geocities.

early 1999, i graduated college and moved the homepage to altern to avoid the ads. it didn’t last long, since on February 19, altern was closed because of a company sued them.

jobless, had nothing to do but tweaking my homepage around, i got obsessed over my site. despite of having no income, i bought a domain (avocadolite) and paid for my site to be hosted at Dreamhost. yikes! what was i thinking?

but yeah, that was 3 years ago… the story of how avocadolite was born. since then, ari has joined, it has gone thru more redesigns, it now has a little brother and it actually got me a job (my first job was a junior designer).

happy 3 years, avocadolite :)

Woo-weee! Happy 3 yr Annivesary to Avocadolite! It’s amazing. I’m enjoying the stay here. WOW!! That’s all i have to say. You’ve got some major kick ass talent! Hey maybe you can teach me a lil something, please? LOL. But seriously, i would love it if you gave me some pointers to web designing. I’ve just started last summer. Take a look at my site, and help me out with some pointers would ya? Thanks Thalia.

3 years ago, i was sittin’ and learn how to use masked layer on photoshop. now i’m learning how to get a better idea than avocadolite has. well, there’s none better… it’s already the best.

happy birthday avocadolite…!!
