About the Site

This is my personal website, livid☆dreams. It is home to my creations, interests, thoughts, resources, collections, and anything else I fancy. The site's birthday is on 6/1/2020, which makes it a Gemini.

The site's name is based on the phrase "vivid dreams", which I often see in my sleep. Livid is a lovely gray-blue color. Another definition of livid is "extremely furious", but that isn't the one I'm using here!

I decided to create my own website because I am sick of the toxicity, negativity, drama, and competition on social media. Here, on my own website, I can relax and do my own thing. It isn't a top tier site by any means, but I am proud of it!

Nostalgia is the other reason why I created this website. As a kid, I would spend hours browsing Pokémon fansites from the late 2000s and early 2010s. I was fascinated by their creations, designs, and layouts. I decided to learn HTML and CSS when I was 11 years old, using Butterfree's guide at The Cave of Dragonflies. In the following years, I'd occasionally play around with coding, but I never did anything with it. Then, I discovered Neocities and its community of passionate webmasters. I finally felt inspired to create a website of my own!
