About

hi, I'm JW, a he/him(?) human creature moonlighting as an internet lurker.

Across all the hobbies pursued over my 23 years, a bunch of them were adjacent to RPG mechanics and doorstopping fantasy stories, inevitably stuffing my head with dreams of telling tales of my own. Consuming lots of long stories doesn't do any favors for my succinctness though, so I try to wrangle what thoughts I can about them and other miscellaneous musings onto this blog.

If you want to chat, feel free to message me on discord at JWHighwind#7710, shoot an email to jwhighwind(at)gmail(dot)com, or just leave a message on my Neocities profile. You can also check out some other stuff I do around the interwebs on my carrd.

Your dominant hues are cyan and green. Although you definitely strive to be logical you care about people and know there's a time and place for thinking emotionally. Your head rules most things but your heart rules others, and getting them to meet in the middle takes a lot of your energy some days.

Your saturation level is medium - You're not the most decisive go-getter, but you can get a job done when it's required of you. You probably don't think the world can change for you and don't want to spend too much effort trying to force it.

Your outlook on life is brighter than most people's. You like the idea of influencing things for the better and find hope in situations where others might give up. You're not exactly a bouncy sunshine but things in your world generally look up.

people learning how to live better (FFIX and Celeste), people just living (Wide Ocean Big Jacket) or trying their best to live (KH 358/2 Days), and a really good videogame (Cave Story)

I promise I listen to more than just different kinds of electronic music…sometimes…
