Hello!

Postby tehrin » Sat Sep 02, 2017 10:25 pm

I go by tehrin online, but most of you might already know me by Bobbi as that's what I've put on my websites since time immortal *cough*sincegeocities*hack*

I'm in my mid 30's and I'm a retail manager, unfortunately due to circumstance. But it pays well enough to muddle through the stress.

I've taken a long hiatus from webdesign and just got back into it this year. By hiatus, I mean I rarely made anything for myself for personal enjoyment. It was mostly projects, working on anime convention websites and modifying wordpress templates. But I really missed doing fun things with css and graphics in my personal site/collective days. So I'm back at it again!

Other than that, I love drawing and writing. But I'm self-conscious about my work and can never finish a thing so I don't have as much online as I'd like. Maybe that will change!

Fandoms include jrpgs, namely final fantasy, xeno (gears, saga, blade), and others! I enjoy anime too, but not into it as much anymore. Though I do catch some series here and there. My favorite is probably Revolutionary Girl Utena and Serial Experiments Lain. I'm also really big on Disney. The IRL husbando and I keep going to Disney World because we can't decide on another place to take a vacation. I really love The Lion King and I have too many Tsum Tsums.

Also Alpacas are love. Alpacas are life. <3

Hi, Bobbi! I used to visit your sites quite often and I'm glad to see you back! I think I remember joining your "Old School" clique... it was a classic! It's nice to see another person who's acquainted with Geocities. :)

It's always so heart-warming to see people return to a hobby they once loved, so I'm glad you've found back to it and that you're here now! Welcome to The Rose Keep. :excited: :excited:

The layouts of your older shrines are so gorgeous - really demonstrates a lot of the creativity back then. I miss seeing the complete navigation on the layout rather than as subnavigations haha...

And yessss Utena is a favourite of mine too. Pics of your tsum collection please!! :eyes: :eyes: :eyes: :eyes: :eyes:

Welcome to The Rose Keep! I remember your old sites so it's good to see you make a comeback. :excited:

One sovereign's war is another sovereign's peace
One mother's pride is another mother's sorrow
Their tears both soak the land that they love

Oooh yeah my oldschool clique. Maybe I will start that back up! I forgot all about it! But yes... Geocities. There's a blog on tumblr that I follow that has screencaps of various geocities sites. I saved my old files when Geocities went down, so I still have my first site on there and all my old (awful) content! It's kind of funny to look back at the kind of person you were, what, almost a twenty years ago? Holy crap!

Thank you! I think since I have a domain up and everything I should stick around no matter how busy I get. :sweat: Hopefully I can change jobs soon and not be so overwhelmed so I have more time for personal projects! But yes! I do miss easy navigation like that! But it looks like newer things that I've made have kinda nixed it! Newer meaning uh... 2010 and never uploaded until recently. I will... post pics of my tsum tsums when I reorganize them. I tried to stuff them into my ita bag going on a disney trip and it didn't fare well. So I tossed them all on the shelf and there they sat (and I got more, and more, and more...)

Hi Bobbi! Welcome/welcome back! :) I'm glad to see another jrpg/final fantasy fan here! I think I watched the lion king about 5,000 times when I was a kid. I still get emotional during the scene with Mufasa :sob: :sob: I hope you enjoy your time here! ❤
