What am I up to at the moment? Inspired by /now; my listing's here!

Watched Google I/O and think AI is based now. Been consuming a lot of content and working on schoolwork. I did a little work on revamping this site. Thinking about how I could get money to purchase a Lenevo Legion laptop near the end of this year.

About myself & who I am

TL;DR: he/xem/theirs "maleman" (heterosexual) who likes computers, cats, consuming content, creating content, & interacting with fellow humans.

My name's Xan! ๐Ÿ˜„ I'm a teenage lover of cool software & a big tech enthusiast. I'm a curious and thoughtful person who's almost always up for a good laugh, and I love learning new things.One of my favorite things to do is chat with friends on Discord, where I own a few servers. I also browse YouTube, Twitter, and Reddit for a lot for interesting content to view. But when I'm not online, I'm playing mobile games or spending time taking photos. I use my Google Pixel 6 or a professional camera to take photos, like the ones on this site's homepage and photography.xan.lol!
I sometimes use YouTube Music to find songs to listen to and then download, increasing the number of hours (42+ as of April '23) of music on my phone, so I always have something to listen to. I listed a ton of my favorite musicians (and films, games, & content creators) on faves.xan.lol so that I can remember them all.
I like eating vegan ice cream and other plant-based foods. There are so many restaurants with great options available! I chose that diet/lifestyle after learning about the vast health benefits, even though I don't care for the animals very much. Silly thing about that, people have known that animal products worsen the planet's health and people's health for a long time. (See: 3 links in last two sentences.)
My first name Xan is real and originates from the Time Quintet series, originating from the book A Wrinkle in Time. The last name Surnamehere is just an idea I had, but could be considered important in lore elements.
It's possible that you learned that I was alive through my Scratch presence. I don't really used the platform anymore, but if you care, you can read a little bit about things I did there here.
Btw, I had Google's Bard help co-write the text above. ๐Ÿ’€ AI is craaaazzy.

No cap (actually not even cap!), this is the total number of ๐Ÿงข caps I have


This website is so swaggy ๐Ÿคฏ

Made with Carrd.co, a no(-but I made it low)-code service that you can totally use for free but I hit the 50 element limit on faves.xan.lol so I bought the top tier subscription.I want like a blog similar to manton.org on this domain. Please DM me on Discord if you're interested in helping me add something similar to a new version of this site! (Or how would someone go about adding ActivityPub &/or indieweb integration to a Hugo site?)

What's this? The Socio-Political Climate Of IKEA?! No, I don't think so.

I might've generated this via ChatGPT3 before it got popular ๐Ÿ‘€-Once upon a time, in a far-off land, there lived a giraffe named Gerald. Gerald was a bit of a peculiar giraffe, as he had a love for wearing underpants. He would spend hours in front of his mirror, trying on different pairs of underpants and admiring how they looked on him.Despite the teasing and ridicule he received from the other giraffes, Gerald never lost his love for underpants. In fact, he only grew more and more determined to prove to the world that giraffes could look just as fashionable and stylish in underpants as any other animal.One day, Gerald decided to enter the annual animal fashion show, where all of the best-dressed animals from across the land gathered to showcase their finest clothing. The other giraffes laughed and scoffed at Gerald when they heard of his plans, but he was undeterred.On the day of the fashion show, Gerald strutted down the runway, wearing a bright red pair of underpants that matched the spots on his fur. The judges and the audience were shocked by his bold fashion choice, but they couldn't deny that he looked absolutely dashing.In the end, Gerald was awarded the top prize in the fashion show, and he became a shining example to all giraffes (and animals) that it's important to be true to yourself, no matter what others may say. From that day on, underpants became all the rage among giraffes, and Gerald was hailed as a fashion icon.-Once upon a time, in the same far-off land where the giraffe named Gerald lived, there was a hyena named Henrietta. Henrietta was a bit confused, as she had always been taught that giraffes were her natural prey. But she had never actually tried to eat one before, and she wasn't quite sure how to go about it.One day, Henrietta came across Gerald, the fashionable giraffe with underpants. She was immediately mesmerized by his bright red underpants, and she forgot all about her instincts to hunt giraffes. Instead, she approached Gerald and struck up a conversation with him.To Henrietta's surprise, Gerald was incredibly friendly and kind. He invited Henrietta to join him for a picnic, where they enjoyed a delicious meal of fresh fruits and vegetables. Henrietta was fascinated by Gerald's love for underpants, and she even tried on a pair of her own.From that day on, Henrietta and Gerald became the best of friends. They spent their days going on adventures and exploring the world together, always looking fashionable and stylish in their underpants. And as for Henrietta's confusion about consuming giraffes, she quickly realized that friendship was much more fulfilling than any meal could ever be.
