Q: Why does your website look weird and dumb?
A: I made it all by hand-typing HTML, which I barely remember how to do.
Q: That seems like a poor choice.
A:I haven't "made a website" in about fourteen years. When I was in my early teens, most of my friends were people I met in forums. I always had a website where I would put stories and drawings and other embarrassing things I made.
A: Maybe. I was happy with it at the time. I have really good memories of staying up late at night, working super hard to make projects that looked about as good as this does.
Q: So this is some kind of nostalgia trip?
A: "Nostalgia trip" is the default operating mode for anyone born after 1984.
