Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I assume most people looking at this already know me irl- but in case you don't, here's a little bit about me:
I've always been a bit more on the expressive side. I was a theatre kid growing up, and I did plenty of journaling and video-ing as well. I suppose you could chalk that up to me being an attention whore, (and you'd be partially right) but I did a lot of that without showing anyone. I can only assume it's because I want to keep an archive of who I was for my future self. I mean, I have journal entries dating all the way back to the second grade!
Something else I've been called is an internet addict. I was glued to computer screens far before the advent of social media- and was bitten by the bug as soon as I was old enough to figure out how to lie about my age on forms. Recently, though, I've started to consider the way that my behavior has been affected by what I look at online. It occurred to me that all that mindless scrolling might not be great for my already incredibly short attention span.
So, I set out to find a way to have an online presence without all the extra BS shoveled into my brain. This was what I came up with. I realize there are a lot of drawbacks to having a website as opposed to a profile on Instagram. The main one is that I'm essentially shutting myself off from everyone who doesn't have a direct link to my site. In 2021, who really surfs the internet anymore? Still, the benefits to something like this far outweigh the costs for me. I'm hoping to add a guestbook or something so I users can directly interact with this site- but right now, it's essentially just a self-hosted blog.
