About Aryana

Aryana Adkanian

Hi, I’m Aryana.

Where do I begin? I like books. Actually, I majored in English in college because I like books so much. I like writing, too, which is good because it's a big part of my job.

When I'm not reading or writing or working, I like listening to music (mostly rock and its related genres) and I like going to the gym and lifting things in there.

Oh yeah, I'm into the Internet, too. I tweet sometimes. I made my first website when I was 10. Read below to find out why and how I became so geeky at such a young age.

About this Website

The Past

When I was 10 years old, I was really bored. I was homeschooled and had way too much time on my hands. I also had access to a computer and an Internet connection. So, naturally, weird things started happening. Somehow, I found out about web design. So when I was 10, I taught myself HTML and CSS. And then I made my own website. I mean, actually, I made multiple websites. I could never decide on a final, official title, so I kept changing it up. I really enjoyed web design. Most of my waking hours were spent staring at a computer screen. And I loved every minute of it.

Then, a couple years later, I went back to public school and I suddenly didn’t have as much time on my hands. So I gradually faded away from the computer until I finally quit web design. Over the next few years, I forgot everything I taught myself. And I wasn’t even that sad about it.

The Present

In June 2017, once again, I suddenly had a lot of time on my hands. I had just finished college and was looking for something productive to occupy my brain. So I bought a book, HTML and CSS: Design and Build Websites by Jon Duckett. I used that book (along with an extremely reliable source known as Google) to relearn everything about web design that I had previously taught myself when I was 10 years old.

And then I made this website. And the rest is history, I guess.
