Started to make anime sites around 6th or 7th grade. This was like 2001-2002, using Homestead and Geocities. It kinda escalated from there. After page builders, it was taking page source from other websites and making it work how I wanted to modifying PHP scripts. Ended up doing some freelance web work after dropping out of college and was fortunate enough to to land a junior dev job with a marketing firm.

I love that time period! For me it was Geocities and FreeWebs (IIRC).
