Maybe Im too new to really analyze this but; 1. e4 e5, fine. Then 2. h3? Why? to prevent Ng4 when he hasnt even moved to f6 yet?? Then I dont understand why u have black pinning the Knight to a pawn. The Knight can still move. And then a3 seems useless bc there is no pin, so why the urgency to move the Bishop?? I dunno, again maybe I dont fully understand all the nuance but these moves seem strange and pointless.

Indeed, you do not fully understand the nuance. It may not appear immediately necessary, but in the positions that occur later it proves to be a powerful move. Read the original post for the other benefits.
