I have no life.

I'm trying to learn all those new things that have been popping up on the Internet. I learned HTML, I thought that was enough, but now they have Javascript, Java, PHP, DHTML, XML, XHTML, CSS, and whatnot. They'll probably go extinct in a decade, give or take a few years. Being 18, ready to turn 19 in the end of May, I feel too old for this.

I don't know precisely why. Why is it that all these programming terminologies should seem so complicated to my brain? Is HTML truly the easiest programming language, so easy that I can learn it, but when I come upon XML, my fettered mind reels against the oh-so foreign ways to write codes? How do you get started? I understand the concept, but how do I make it so that I can attach a meaning to a made-up tag?

I have the answer. I learned HTML through a tutorial that was really fundamental and hands-on. Dave's Tutorial was really the best. They had the intelligence to provide a box where I could practice my own codes and see what happened. Unlike WebMonkey, which requires me to open up a separate notepad file in order to tinker around, Dave's Tutorial was superior, allowing me to do things on the pages that I'm reading.
