Hello, Hola, Ciao

pictures of me

Check out my site; It's pretty nice, no? Yeah, it really isn't that great, but this is my first attempt. I decided to take a course on online communication (MMC 5015) at The University of Florida because I want to know how the World Wide Web works. I feel as if we as a society take too many things for granted; we want everything now, and really don't care how...just give it to me. As more and more aspects of our daily lives are played out in cyberspace, I feel as if grasping the fundamentals of web design will give me the insight necessary to expand into other fields of cyberspace. I may be wrong; after all I just have this gut feeling. I am 24, soon to be 25, and I feel like my grandmother does when she tries to use the computer; I feel confused. This (X)HTML and CSS stuff is very confusing, but fundamentally essential to the process of web design. If I can create a site using (X)HTML and CSS, I can do anything. Cyberspace here I come.

I am currently working on a Masters in Mass Communication at the College of Journalism and Communications at the University of Florida. I am interested in Media Law, and I hope to start Law School in Fall of 2009. I have a BA in English, and a minor in Italian (I love the concept of culture).

Anyway, this site should give you enough information for you to form an idea of who I am. If it doesn't than too bad...use your imagination. Feel free to e-mail me with comments.
