    Hey, I'm a 45 yr old idiot with no previous computer experience. I started to play with html and css recently and got addicted. Problem is being an idiot, I can copy and memorize sites from books or youtube, and I know most of the code, but when it comes to the css, I'm useless. Lost. If I change any detail, or try to do my own from scratch, I have NO idea why anything is happening. It all goes out the window. I use youtube videos, I have books by John Ducket, and I even tried paying Treehouse, which seemed to be a total waste of time and a bit of a scam. Is there any hope for me? Any advice? How can I learn CSS? Lots of lessons out there, but not with much explanation of WHY everything is happening. People use padding, margins, floating in different ways, it seems. I just don't get it. I copied a home page from my book, and it only took up a small part of the page, no matter what percentages or pixels I used.

    I love that you are teaching and working at the same time! I have had too many teachers that turned out to just be enthusiasts, who like to yammer about their favorite things.
