about the webmaster

-------------------------------------------------------------------------⠀⠀who are you?

hiya! my name is nova. im a twenty (20) year old weirdo, and this is my website, novaweb! great to meetchya! ヽ(o^▽^o)ノ

i've been making stuff on the internet for as long as i can remember. i uploaded my first youtube video when i was... i think 8 years old? and i was writing posts on online forums like gamefaqs even earlier. needless to say, the internet played an integral role in my upbringing and in no small part shaped me into the person i am today.

and now, after all my years of being chronically online, i have a neocities! this place is basically my little compartment in cyberspace. if i make or do anything of note, it's probably gonna end up here.

funnily enough, this isn't actually my first website. i've been fooling around with making these things for many years, and if i had to guess this would be my third or fourth proper site. it happens, though, that this is the first one i'm actually taking seriously. i hope that reflects in the quality of the place!

i'm currently studying to be a journalist, so naturally, i'd have to be okay at writing. thats why i created the blog™, so i have a place i can share all of my essays, media analysis, critique, and research for all of you to enjoy! i'll always have my latest blogpost linked on the homepage!

i also indulge in a myriad of other creative mediums. im a huge music nerd, so i also have a music catalogue where i share my (objectively superior) music taste. i try to share as much of the music i like as i can. so, if you're looking for something to listen to, i've got you covered!

i'm also an avid manga reader (lucky star is my favorite, in case you couldn't tell). not much more to say about that, really. i just like the cool japanese comics.

i'm also very active in the super smash bros. melee community. yes, thats the one for the gamecube. i plan to share a ton of cool resources for new players and people looking to get into the game on this site, and i might even post a cool clip or two (if i can actually hit one). in addition, i'm a huge nerd for pokemon, and i used to play it competitively too, so you'll probably see some of my love for the franchise bleed into other parts of the website.

lets see... what else about me... oh! i'm a sucker for vintage tech. specifically, i have a fascination with late 90's and early 2000s y2k-era stuff, so i'd love to write about tech phenomina of the past and show you some of my (evergrowing) collection of gadgets. if you have any cool ideas of old tech stories i should write about, or just want to share something cool with me, email me! you can reach me at niconiconova@protonmail.com :3

if i think of anything else, i'll probably put it here. but for now, thats me! thanks for reading and thanks for visiting my webbed site.⠀⠀⠀☆ ~('▽^人)
