My name is Sim (it/its). I'm a grad student & this is my personal website.

Like many Neocities users, I created this page out of nostalgia for the old web, a dislike of social media, and the simple desire to learn how to make something for myself. It may not be too elegant, but, honestly, I kind of wanted it to look like shit, cause I find that more fun.

What you'll find on here: - Links to the few socials I use (Tumblr and Flickr) - Links to some readings I highly recommend, especially if you're interested in queer monsters - Some things I've created - art, journal spreads, whatever. Why not. Welcome to my twisted mind I guess - And finally, eventually, a blog. I don't expect anyone to read it, really--this is more of a "why not, I Can and I Want To, so I Will" type of situation. That said, I am a grad student, so if anyone out there who has anything to do with my education finds this website, hi! Sandy Stone and Micha Cardenas both had shitty little websites where they posted about their research, so I'm in good company, no?

As a note, I'm learning how to add comment boxes and format blog posts with... I don't know, a like button, stuff like that. As an RPer, a lifelong maladaptive daydreamer, and a DnD nerd, I may end up adding something for OCs as well. Like I said, "I can, and I want to, and I like things that look like shit, so like, here."

"Hearken unto me, fellow creatures. I who have dwelt in a form unmatched with my desire, I whose flesh has become an assemblage of incongruous anatomical parts, I who achieve the similitude of a natural body only through an unnatural process, I offer you this warning: The Nature you bedevil me with is a lie. Do not trust it to protect you from what I represent, for it is a fabrication that cloaks the groundlessness of the privilege you seek to maintain for yourself at my expense. You are as constructed as me; the same anarchic Womb has birthed us both. I call upon you to investigate your nature as I have been compelled to confront mine. I challenge you to risk abjection and flourish as well as have I. Heed my words, and you may well discover the seams and sutures in yourself."
