a little history of this website

this site was originally created as potassiumMCR on 17 sept 2017.

originally created as a way for young me to escape his troubling life, it eventually evolved into a personal project.

i grew tired of keeping up the appearance that a younger me created and i burned out.

i archived the past version of myself on 9 may 2020 for one year minus a day.

and then the war was over.
