why dont we use INT instead of INTEGER

You can use any but the syntax would have to change. When using INTEGER, you write in capital letters but if you want to use int, you may have to use _int.

I am trying to create the celebs table. However, instead of creating columns, the code I type creates rows. Why is this?

AFAIU, what you see is a table schema, with 0 rows. It just shows you schema as rows. If you run a SELECT query on this table, you’ll see your parameters as columns. P.S. Would be great if someone could confirm

So WHERE are we creating this table? Sorry if I missed that in the course. Where are tables stored? IRL, should I download an app or program to use SQL and create tables? If yes, any suggestions for which ones are best?
