Gifntext - Update 5 initially started as a Geocities website when I was in 6th grade. Over the years, it has slowly evolved into a place where I can practice and become familiar with web development as it progresses.

As the website has continued to grow, there have been some enhancement suggestions that I'm toying with implementing:
