about me

Sooo, here we are. I am so excited about this small web / bespoke internet / etc. phenomenon, and people's creativity here blows me away. I, however, am struggling a bit with deciding on a visual theme¹, and a screen name², and what kind of pages I want to make, and how much personal information I want to put here. When I first got ~the internet~, around 1999, even telling people your real name was a big no-no (well, at least for me I guess, I was a child), and I kind of want to go back to that.

I aim for this website to be a cool place to explore at your own pace. Nothing more, nothing less.

¹It's been a while since I wrote this, I decided on having all the visual themes at once and I struggle no more

²I don't think I'm changing it at this point. I hate the pressure of choosing a username so I just used what I call one of my cats sometimes.

current goals for this site:

  • set things up to update the site through the neocities api OR get a supporter account and do ftp
  • find way to share playlists without youtube/spotify embeds
  • make a credits / resources page
  • make a flash games recommendations page
  • make a desktop ui-like page
  • make an html/css tips page? maybe?
  • make an art gallery page?
  • make a bunch more pages
  • add section with the covers of my favorite albums to music page
  • organize files
  • make a neocities links page
  • make an internet memories page
  • make a music page
