These days it’s commonplace to do everything online, from designing the layout of your kitchen to locating a stranger prepared to kill and eat you for mutual sexual gratification.
welcome to my corner. I'm currently a student
studying abroad in Japan. I live right between the border of Tokyo and Kanagawa. A fleeting r*ddit comment led me here, where I started this site in late 2018. I grew up in a time where personal sites were uncommon and social media was at its infancy so here I am. Going through neocities is adorable, I wish there were other ways of this sort of personal self-expression. Everyone on reddit and tumblr are faceless and discord is infested with people who would eat one another if given the opportunity. Every other mainstream service has a cultivated, transient experience that feels deeply impersonal. Neocities is great.
My time here now easily rivals r*ddit and youtube.
I've always been curious about the circles people choose to gravitate toward: the art they enjoy, music they listen to, hobbies they invest in. Tumblr was a great example of a carefully cultivated environment: An endless feed of media that expands upon your existing interests depending on who you follow. Expand your scope and more diverse stuff comes your way. Archives of Geocities and by extension, Neocities grants me that perspective through demonstrations of self-expression within open-ended personal sites. Each one is wildly different in layout and content.
Above all, I'm interested in the mentalities people adhere to. Their outlook on life, how they structure their day-to-day and reflect about their past. I've had a rather contentious relationship with both, and it's refreshing to see some different approaches.
I've always had issues with processing my emotions. A .txt file used to occupy my thoughts, but it was too two-dimentional to be a helpful reference. Neocities allows me to catalog my thoughts in a concise manner and include pictures. Best part is I can share what I enjoy.
I write about what I like, and I try not to compartmentalize my thoughts. This site is a good exercise for me to have my interests laid out and periodically updated. I was the kinda kid to bring their favorite toys everywhere. That mentality has stuck with me I guess. Hopefully you'll find some personal intersections in my writings.
questions? suggestions? death threats? take a gander at the guestbook or reach me at http://mumblingmasochist.tumblr.com/ I'm just a normal guy and I'd love to hear your thoughts about anything.
