Blog Post 10: August 3rd, 2020
Yo! It's currrently 11:47pm as I write this entry.
What's up friends? How has everyone been? It's been very busy for me recently. I'm exhausted. I fall asleep instead of really doing any of the stuff that I usually do after my daily grind is over. I've even been too tired to post a blog update or work on the site :( Hoping things slow down soon. Not too much to report today so I'll probably ramble.
I've been playing Persona 4 a little bit at a time when I find myelf with free time where I'm not already asleep. Apparently this is a very long game and I've barely scratched it, so I'll probably be at it for a while. I've been trying to pick back up some manga I've had lying around for a while. One of my recent favorites is called "So I'm a Spider, so what?" It's about this girl who suddenly finds herself turned into a spider and transported to some kind of video game world. She has to fight to survive and she level up and stuff, it's pretty lighthearted and very funny. A good story to read if you just want something goofy and positive.
I forgot to post this gif on August 1st, but oh well I'm gonna post it anyway. Happy belated "Odaiba Memorial Day"!
Speaking of Digimon, I decided to start back up my 20th V-Pet (it's okay if you have no idea what any of this means just ignore it lol). I take it to work with me. It definitely helps the day pass when things are slow. It's basically a Tamagotchi but it has Digimon in it instead. When I bought it about a year ago it was a light grey, but I actually took it apart and gave it a custom paintjob for a fun little project one night. It's been sparkly silver and gold ever since, although it looks like it might need a fresh coat of paint soon.
I haven't had any dreams in a while. No nightmares either. I feel like I had a very strange one a couple days ago, but when I woke up I couldn't remember a thing. I did have a very strange feeling though. Not sure if this is good or bad. On an unrelated note, the weather around here has been pretty shitty. It's hot as hell, and then it'll storm pretty bad for less than an hour and then the rest of the day it'll be even hotter because of the humidity. I wish I still lived in a nice cold place that got plenty of snow. Or somewhere where the rain lasts for a whole day. I love storms, they're very peaceful and they help me sleep. But I can't help but think about how mysterious and sinister the rain is, you know? It's always used for dramatic effect or to accentuate tense moments in media. And sometimes, it's depicted as being flat out evil. Like a town or people are changed after it rains and a thick fog covers the area... pretty spooky, eh?
That's it for today! I've heard from some of you on Discord recently, and that's pretty cool! I love talking to you guys about Neocities and whatever else. I'll leave a song as usual. Until next time! Thanks for reading, and may your heart be your guiding key.
Blog Post 9: July 27th, 2020
Hello. It's currrently 11:32pm as I write this entry.
What's up! Been about a week since my last post. It's been super busy here at home and at work. Hope all of you have been well. Today was my mom's birthday, so me and my little sister met her at a place she really likes for lunch. I treated, of course. It was pretty good. The interior was really interesting, lots of purples and teals. Multiple levels, but only seperated by a few steps so not proper upstairs or downstairs. It reminded me a lot of the 90s-00s style that you don't see anymore. We shared a french onion soup, and I ordered a fried chicken sandwhich. Man, this was delicious. It had pepper jelly and bacon mayo on it. Pretty damn good. My other sister (older than my little sister but not older than me lol) treated her to dinner, so I think she's had a pretty good birthday between all the food and the gifts :)
Yes, I take pictures of food LOL
Went through some of the shit in my closet the other day. Found my old binder of Pokemon cards. I still have a lot of really rare ones, and they're all in pretty good condition. I wonder if any of them are worth a lot?
I hit over 50 followers and over 7,000 views this week. That's really cool, I really had no idea people would wanna look at this stupid website and the nonsense that I post. But, to each and every one of you, thanks so much for your time. I really do apprecite it!
Speaking of the site, it seems like my music has disappeared again. I use a site to upload MP3 files to host for me, but they've expired. I think I'll become a Supporter so I don't have to deal with this every week lol. Btw, if you see any errors with my pages or anything please let me know via Discord or eMail!
That's it for today. Thanks for reading and all your support! I'll leave you with one of the best anime opening themes of all time. And if you disagree, then we clearly have an issue.
Thanks for reading, and may your heart be your guiding key.
Blog Post 8: July 21st, 2020
Hello. It's currrently 10:44pm as I write this entry.
Had my friend over for a few hours last night. It was pretty fun. We just talked and played some video games. He didn't have anything to say about the girl, in fact he's just as confused as I am about the whole thing. He did mention he isn't too surprised though because she's very impulsive and will move on or run away if she senses anything even slightly going wrong. She's aslo recently started dating some "ugly bastard" (his words lol) so at this point I've gotta just swallow my sadness and move on. There's a much longer story to all of this, and a lot of confusing details i've left out but I simply don't feel like explaining it all at the moment. Maybe one day I will, but as of right now I just need to get over this quick before I find myself laying in bed sick all day.
Another busy day. Mom isn't feeling very well. She's pretty stressed about school starting back up for my little sister. The way they're doing it is 4 days a week purely online at home, and one day a week at the actual school. This is pretty stupid if you ask me lol. Unfortunately my mom works (my stepdad was the one who used to watch the kid and do the house stuff, but he sadly passed last year) so she's unable to do the schooling during the day for my little sister. So I'm going to be changing up my work schedule in order to make sure my sister is schooled properly. This is going to be a very tiring year.
Added another secret page to the site today. I've been messing with how CSS works. I'll be honest, this one is really proving to be tricky for me. But I've also been practicing more general layouts, and I think I'll be able to reliably make sidebars with links soon. Eventually the main page will be exactly that: a main page with links that will direct you to other pages, including where I plan on putting the main blog posts.
Treated my mom to some chinese take-out tonight. Pretty tasty. A lot of the time I'll get her food or cook for her (i'm a damn good cook btw) since she's clearly exhausted from working. I don't mind doing it. Gotta take care of your family, you know? Although I'll be the first to admit sometimes I don't feel that way ahaha.
Ok, that's it for this one. Not much else to report here. I'll leave you with another song and sit in bed for 3 hours looking at my phone until I fall asleep lol
As always, thanks so much for reading. May your heart be your guiding key!
Blog Post 7: July 20th, 2020
Hello. It's currrently 2:55pm as I write this entry.
Another weird dream last night. Not about my ex. Basicaly, the dream was me and a girl having sex. That's basically it. She was tall and thin, wit very dark shin and short hair. I'm not sure why my brain keeps inventing women in my dreams. And I'm not sure why the dreams are consistently erotic. I'll spare you the details but basically everytime I dream like this, it's so incredibly real that I can remember how it felt. What the hell is causing this?
Asked an old friend to hang out tonight. He's gonna comeover around 6:30. Looking forward to seeing him and reliving the old days. I'm also going to ask him about the girl I was involved with a couple months back. I need someone to talk to about all this, it's really eating away at me. I keep thinking about her, and progressively getting sadder and more depressed because of it. I really do miss her. People always say "It's better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all." I couldn't disagree more.
Been having trouble staying up lately. I'm usually tired by 4 or 5am and then call it a night, but I keep finding myself unable to stay up past maybe 12 or 1. Haven't been able to read, play video games, see people. Really do anything. I'm so tired lol. I work on the site and that's pretty much it! Another sudden and mysterious change in my life.
Speaking of the site, I've changed the welcome page. Made the gif myself! Took forever to find a site that wouldn't splash a watermark all over it. Hope you guys like the new look.
I've got almost 50 followers on Neocities! I honestly didn't expect to get a single one. Never thought anybody would actually read any of this, let alone care about it. But I'm glad I have people who are interested in what I have to say. I've found so many blogs that I've followed on here as well. A lot of what you guys say is very interesting. Very deep and personal. Sometimes dark, someti mes funny. It's a great mix and I love that I've found pages to look forward to reading!
I've been meaning to go to the Japanese market again, but haven't had much free time. I'm planning on going next week and taking my little sister with me. She's very interested in going, and wants to get some candy! Speaking of my little sister, I was playing some Avril Lavigne in the car (your judgements have no affect on me) and she has become a fan! She asks me to play "Sk8er Boi" over and over lol.
That's pretty much it for this one. Hoping tonight goes well. Here's a song for ya'll.
Thanks for reading and may your heart be your guiding key.
Blog Post 6: July 18th, 2020
Yo! It's currrently 6:02pm as I write this entry.
Had another nightmare about my ex. But that's not really news, as it happens all the time. I don't remember too much about this one thankfully. Another long day at work today, but not much happened and there wasn't shit to do. Should have brought my laptop with me to keep updating the site and learning more coding and stuff. Oh well, I'm home now! Not sure what I'll be having for dinner but I'm starving. Oh yeah, while I was at work I made a little doodle of Sora from Kingdom Hearts. It's terrible but I found it charming so I'm going to post it lol
I've been receiving a lot of comments and emails from you guys. I really appreciate it, I always love getting messages or mail from people and seeing what you have to say. So I say thank you very much to that! Please feel free to email me whenever! Also, I went ahead and made a Discord account in case any of you preferred to speak using that instead. My tag is "York#5710".
I have a lot of plans for the site. This has become a really awesome hobby of mine, and I feel a lot happier when I'm working on it or browsing other Neocities sites. It really helps to keep the sadness at bay. Anyway, I'd like to add a bunch of shrines! I think it would be really cool and fun haha. Probably cringe and not based, but that's what these sites are all about. Keeping the feel of the 90s and early 00s era websites. I'd also really like to add a music page where you can listen to music I've handpicked. For a lot of this I'd need to learn some proper page layout skills. Stuff like scroll bars and borders and sidebars, etc etc.
To be perfectly honest, I've been very depressed since my ex broke up with me around 2018. The pain is still there, and I really just want someone to be with again. As stated in my entry on July 15th, I was involved with a girl for a couple months. This is basically when qurantine was still pretty strict, and there was absolutely nowhere we could possibly go on dates. She'd used to come visit me at work after we closed, and we'd get some food at a drive-thru and go back to my work. We'd sit inside and eat, we'd talk, we'd fool around, we'd get very intimate. It was really nice, and both of us (or maybe not both...) could clearly feel that this was something special. But, like I said, it sort of just ended abruptly and I really have no knowledge of why or how. And I honestly really miss her. Did I do something wrong? Did I say something wrong? I'm always wondering these things. Maybe I should just send her a text. Idk.
That's all for today! I'll probably post another entry later tonight if anything interesting happens. Here's today's song (you're probably starting to see how bizarre my taste in music is lawl)
Thanks for putting up with me. May your heart be your guiding key!
Blog Post 5: July 16th, 2020
Hey everyone, it's currrently 11:54pm as I write this entry.
Had a pretty good day today! No nightmares last night. Woke up very early for some reason, then tried to go back to sleep. Didn't exactly work out that way lol. So decided to grab an early shower. Had a tasty sandwhich for lunch today, and drank a cherry-vanilla Coke. Good stuff. But I much pefer the California Raspberry cokes. Legitimately the best soda I've ever tasted. Too bad I can't get them in my area anymore. You are sorely missed, California Raspberry Coke... ;__;7
I created a banner/button for my site before I went to work today. Then I finalized it when I got home. I really like how it turned out. I had to crop and paint and edit it in a variety of different programs and apps before I got it the way I wanted. But it was totally worth it! I'll probably end up making a couple more to represent other aspects of the site, like one for Kingdom Hearts, or Godzilla (I love Godzilla btw, haha). If any of you would like to link my button to your site, please feel free to do so. And if you'd like me to link yours, please send me an email! That's the best way to contact me at the moment :) "email@example.com" is the address. I'll link the button right below.
I've also created a "welcome" styled page. It features Sora from the title screen of Kingdom Hearts 2, standing against a simple black background. And the song "Dearly Beloved" plays on the page. I have it set to autoplay and have hidden the audio player, sorry! But I feel it really completes the page that way. Speaking of Kingdom Hearts, it's been my favorite video game series since I was a little kid. I remember playing the first game when I was very young, and I fell in love with it and have been playing every title released ever since. For those of you who aren't in the know, it's an action RPG series combining elements of Final Fantasy with Disney Worlds and Characters. Crazy, eh? Well, it works! I'll talk more and more about Kingdom Hearts in other posts, I'm sure.
I finished off the night having a voice chat with one of my best friends. He lives many states over so I don't get to see him often, so I'm very thankful we can still call and chat. I started the game "Persona 4 Golden" for the first time ever tonight. He started a new game to play alongside me. I'm liking it so far, and I'm interested to see what else awaits me in my playthrough.
That's gonna be it for tonight! I've got a lot of work to do tomorrow. Hope you all enjoy the upcoming weekend. Here's today's song.
Thanks a bunch for reading, and may your heart be your guiding key!
Blog Post #4: July 15th, 2020
Hey everyone, it's currrently 5:33pm as I write this entry.
I've been pretty busy these last few days. Quarantine is still going on, which means my little sister is still out of school. Normally on my days off from work, I'd pick up my little sister and watch her until my mom got home from work. But, I've pretty much been with her from 8am to about 6pm since the whole quarantine started. She's only 7, so definitely cannot stay home or take care of herself on her own. My mother's work only allowed them to work from home for about a month, and then they had to go back to the offices. It's pretty screwed up, and the guy who runs the company is a total asshole. But things are starting to calm down, (supposedly) and her dance classes have started back up. Not sure I agree with that being open and stuff like movie theatres still being closed. Either close it all or open it all. Getting sick of this flip flopping shit they've been doing with the numbers of positive and negative cases. Alright, that's enough COROOOOONAAAAA talk.
Deadly Premonition 2 came out 5 days ago. Whenever I have free time, I've been playing that. I was beyond excited for it, but unfortunately it failed to, at the very least, be as good as the first game. There's a lot to love in the sequal but it drops the ball on so many aspects. Instead of looking forward to each new story beat, I found myself sighing and wondering when it would end. To call this a disappointment would be a major understatement. I know it's just a video game, but it's far more than that to me. I don't see myself ever revisiting this title, unlike the first game. I can only hope if a third installment, the team can take a closer look at what made the first entry so beloved. Perhaps I'll post my full thoughts on the game someday, but in the meantime...
I very regularly have nightmares about my ex. She does and says horrible things to me in these nightmares, but she was nothing like that IRL. She was the greatest woman I've ever known. A beauty that seemed to not belong in this time. It's like she stepped out of another decade. It's hard to describe. A mind as sharp as can be. She was brilliant. Taught me a lot about life. We were together for 4 and a half years. She broke up with me in 2018. I'm still not sure why. And it torments me quite often. One day, I just come home from work and she tells me she doesn't love me anymore, and wants to see other people. I'll never understand how you just fall out of love with someone. How you can just leave a relationship you've spent so long building, and spent so many happy days in. I've been missing her a lot. I haven't spoken to or seen her since maybe early 2019, I'm not too sure. It's all a blur to me. Up until a month ago I was getting pretty involved with a girl I've known for a while. It was going on for about 2 months ago. A perfect quarantine romance. But then one day, she tells me she actually doesn't want to be in a relationship. So I'm still thinking about that. It's hard to just move on for someone like me. I have a lot of emotions, and a lot of love. I just want someone to love, to hold, for the rest of my life. But then I think about how much it hurts to remember all those good times that my ex pushed out of her mind, and I'm scared to be in love again.
That's all for now. Sorry for the sad shit. Must be sadboi posting hours... As always, I'll leave you with a song. This time it represents how I'm feeling at the moment.
Thanks so much for reading, and may your heart be your guiding key.
Blog Post #3.5 HD Remix: July 11th, 2020
Hey everyone, it's currrently 4:27pm as I write this entry.
I've received a lot of kind messages and support from some of you. My little webpage is growing slowly, but surely. I wanted to give a big thank you to all of you who have followed me and sent me an email! (feel free to email me any comments, questions or concerns btw) You guys have been saying some really nice stuff and I greatly appreciate it!
Not much else to report as of now. I've written this entry early, and there's still plenty of day left. I've tweaked the webpage a little and added some new gifs and removed the autoplay song. I've replaced it with a new one that you have to click on yourself. I've also figured out how to add new pages and link them via words or images! Felt pretty good when I saw it working properly. I'll have to come up with some secret links and pages....ohohoho....
That's it for now. As usual, I'll leave you with a song!
Thank you for reading, and may your heart be your guiding key.
Blog Post #3: July 10th, 2020
Hey everyone. It's currently 1:17am as I write tonight's entry.
It's been an interesting couple of days. Seems like shit major shit is going down at work. Our manager isn't getting along with our new assistant manager We think it's most likely racism. Our new assistant is a black woman, and our manager is a white man. Apparently they had a huge fight on Monday and they had to have a meeting at the district office. This shit is crazy, I don't get paid enough to be put in the middle of all this. I'm jusy trying to make some money for school and to help my family. Angway, there's actually a lot more to this but I'll save that for another time as I don't feel like talking about it much longer, lol.
So today is the big day! My most anticipated video game of 2020 has finally released. Deadly Premonition 2. Can't tell you how excited I am to finally play it. I absolutely loved the first game. It's a thrilling murder mystery game filled with humor, horror, and some legitimately sad moments. The gameplay is really janky and often times quite poor, but the charm of the story and wacky characters makes it all worth it! I highly recommend you guys check it out if you can. They're both on the Nintendo Switch."Isn't that right, Zach?"
Another game that releases today is "Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2". I'm also very excited to play this one. Really enjoyed the first one. It's a classic Castlevania type game with an old 8 bit artstyle and a killer soundtrack. Check this one out too if you're a fan of those kinds of games!
Sorry for all the nerd talk today. Not much else to report besides normal, general life stuff. I did have an awful nightmare last night about my ex, but I'd rather not talk about that one. It was really horrible. That's it for tonight! I'll leave you guys with today's song, which is the theme for "Deadly Premonition 2".
Thanks for reading, and may your heart be your guiding key!
Blog Post #2: July 6th, 2020
Hi everyone. It's currently 11:02pm as I write today's entry.
I had a very strange dream last night. It's hard to explain most of it but, the basic premise is that I was friends with this girl who never wore any clothes. Everyone always called her a whore, a slut etc etc. But it never bothered me. But in my dream was definitely aware of it. Whenever she would hug me I could feel her breasts press against me. It was a weird feeling. Felt real. Felt wrong. But felt right? (I feel like I'm aware whenever I'm dreaming at least slightly) Anyway, I couldn't tell who she was. She had a face but it wasn't clear enough to see if she was someone I knew or not. The dream was us going to Target to buy something. But when we got there, the interior was more like a hotel. This is when I woke up. Not quite sure what to make of this one.
Today I went to a Japanese grocery store in my area that I read about. I needed "Japanese Curry Mix" that they only sell in Japan or the speciality Japanese markets. This place was pretty damn cool. The nice lady running the place was super kind to me and thanked me for shopping there. She even bowed. Definitely made me feel welcome. I picked up some goodies along with the curry mix while I was there, but I was on a budget today so I'll have to go back soon and try out some more stuff!
I cooked "Katsu Curry over Rice" today. This is basically the national dish over in Japan. It's a panko-crusted fried chicken cutlet over white rice, with a thick curry sauce containing potatoes, carrots, onions and beef. This was my first time making it and I loved it. The people who ate it with me loved it too. I'll definitely be making this again!
I've been on a Japanese kick lately. Been listening to their music, trying out/cooking their foods as well as generally learning more about them and their culture. I really hope to visit someday.
I'll leave you all today with a music track I've been really enjoying. Some of you might already be familiar with it ;)
Thanks for reading, and may your heart be your guiding key.
Blog Post #1: July 5th, 2020
Hi everyone. Thanks for taking the time to read this.I set up my site during a slow period at work during July 4th (no, we were not closed for the holiday unfortunatel), all on my phone. It was a total pain in the ass but I somehow managed to get some basic coding down! It felt really good to be learning something new and slowly (but surely) finding myself getting faster and better at it.
I've spent some time exploring other Neocities pages since then. I've found a plethora of different kinds of pages. Blogs, archives, meme pages, photo dumps, gambling and betting, etc etc. There really is a lot of really cool stuff. I'm especially interested in the personal blogs I've found.
As far as my blog posts go, I'll be posting them on the main page until I can set up some sort of proper blogging link where you can view past posts and stuff. Hope I'm smart enough to figure it out lol.
Feel free to send me an email (email address is at the top of the main page) if you have any questions or comments for me! Thanks for reading, and may your heart be your guiding key.
