Do I have to? Alright, fiiiiiine...
Well. It's hosted on Neocities, for starters. I don't remember how exactly I stumbled across Neocities in the first place, but it more likely than not involved researching 90s ᴡᴇʙ ᴅᴇsɪɢɴ. Somewhere around early August 2020, I finally decided to "seize the moment", as they say, and make my very own website on Neocities! Although I thought I'd end up putting it off for ages, I figured out some CSS and settled on a basic design not too long after creating the website, attempting to combine two of my favorite colors despite how bright and clashy they look together (not much has really changed design-wise since then). This was some of the earliest text added to the front page:
At first, I didn't really know what to do with the site, aside from displaying what little tangible work I had done; so, pages dedicated to some of my StepMania-related projects were put up in a fairly short amount of time. Eventually I just started adding whatever I felt like sharing with whoever visits the website, but even now my website upkeep is a bit
Despite that, I believe it was around as soon as late August or early September that I finally decided on a proper name for the website: "Riako's apartment complex". Why an apartment complex? Well, I lived in one at some point while I was a kid, and it seemed like a step up from a trinket box...
...And, well, as all good 90s websites say,
I'm a depressive and anxious NEET that overworks herself with music and graphics and gaming all at once, what else do you really need to know?
Most of my other main locations are linked on the front page since, well, the front page existed about 5 months before this About page you're reading right now... 😅 Yes, there's a noticeable lack of social media sites, but I'm not really in the right mindset to deal with stuff like Twitter right now, so.
