This domain is a repository of small sites about all the things I find lovely and interesting. From decluttering to Disney, college prep to comics, Animal Crossing to anime, you'll find surprisingly in-depth tributes and thoughtful analyses on these topics and more.
I came up with the name "withinmyworld.org" in late 2004, just before purchasing the domain; I had just finished writing a song by the same name and loved how the title rolled off the tongue. The phrase "within my world" also encompassed the future scope of the domain--I wanted it to be my personal online world, structured page by page, link by link. So, on December 8th of 2004, I purchased hosting with SurpassHosting and registered this name with GoDaddy; in October of 2018, I moved hosts, making WithinMyWorld.org's new home on the lovely TeaCake.org.
This current vintage-esque layout (version sixteen, "bygone elegance") has been in the works as long as I've been trying to learn parallax design (and that's a LONG time). After struggling for months to learn how to make a parallax layout on my own, I finally found a tutorial that made sense, and ran with its demo, changing what I needed to change along the way. The floral theme was inspired by the Flower Garden Layout Marathon, and it fits the "vintage" aesthetic I was originally shooting for quite well.

Hello there! I am Robin, a young woman in my early thirties--proud nerd/geek, Tar Heel native, UNCG alum, and multipotentialite. I'm generally highly distractible, easily amused/moved to tears, and always having wacky dreams--in short, most likely ADHD, like Jessica McCabe of How to ADHD. MBTI personality tests depict me as either ENFJ or ENFP depending on my mood. I suffered multiple instances of abuse and trauma, leaving me with PTSD, which I completed EMDR therapy for in February of 2018. But thankfully, I am engaged to a wonderful and supportive man I've been with since 2008. ♥
Outside of my dabblings in webdesign, I write (both words and music), take private singing lessons, read fantasy and sci-fi, watch Netflix and YouTube, and do a bit of gaming (tabletop and digital) from time to time. Though I'm not much of an athlete, epicurean, or thrill-seeker, I love cats, forests, dusk, books, music, naps, the Internet, technology, and making others laugh. I have perfect pitch and sound-color synesthesia, both of which work together to color my life with shades of awesome. Math and I have an uneasy truce at the best of times, as I score best in linguistic & musical intelligence, but I also enjoy learning about astronomy and meteorology, too.
