BubblesSOC

Hi I'm Bubs, welcome to my home on the web!

Thanks for stopping by! You have stumbled upon the personal website of Sidney Collins (aka Bubs). I'm a 30-year old student at the University of Alabama studying Computer Science and Mathematics. When I'm not busy programming you'll probably find me writing, drawing, reading, shopping, eating, or playing Monopoly.

About the Girl & Site

Originally from Florence, Alabama, I currently reside in a cozy apartment in Tuscaloosa, Alabama with my 5 fish, Abyssinian guinea pig, Coco, and Maltese puppy, Pixie. My wonderful fiancé, William, has put up with me for over 6 years. He refers to me as his rose, which needs constant care and attention. Although shy at times, I consider myself to be an outgoing person. I love meeting new people and making new friends! Many of my online acquaintances have become my snail mail pen pals. I'm currently writing to over 20 people across the globe! In addition to my aforementioned hobbies, I adore octopi, fashion, trends, Hello Kitty, Japan, gadgets (preferably pink), history, Maneki Neko, and all things cute!

At age 14, I discovered web design. The Geocities SiteBuilder was too constraining, so I taught myself HTML. Around 2003, I bought PHP & MySQL for Dummies and started learning the new languages. About a year later, I decided to switch my major from English to Computer Science so that I could further my programming knowledge (My true passion is programming.)

Born in October 1999, BubblesSOC (aka Rainbow High) started at Geocities, but was never fully constructed. In August 2001, I relocated to Envy.Nu and reopened my site, changing the name from Rainbow High to BubblesSOC. I purchased BubblesSOC.Net on June 25, 2003. My domain now happily resides at Site5.
