hey there,

i'm lariza.

Your typical 20-something cat mom + wife loving / living in the Bay Area. I’m an art teacher, painter, and crafter of many things. Animation student turned soon-to-be CPhT. Lover of cruelty free beauty and sustainability, and learning a lot along the way. Collector of old + new video games, cameras, and things that make sound. D&D podcast enthusiast, Alliance spell casting warlock, and Stardew Valley farmer. Former external but forever internal emo kid.

Nowadays, I mainly document my daily life, loves, current games I’ve been playing, and the ever-changing progress of decorating our home. I also enjoy film photography and vintage collecting, so you can find me figuring out new cameras and growing my record collection.

my favorite games, current plays + pc build

P R E S S - S T A R T

My first game was the 1993 version of Link's Awakening on the Game Boy Color, followed by Pokémon Yellow, and then my first console which was a hand-me-down DreamCast. I spent a majority of my childhood bugging my cousins so I could watch them play, and it's through them that sparked my life-long love for video games. I switched over to PC gaming in 2016, but my love for retro consoles + handhelds still remains. Along with my husband, we collect old systems from our youth because we're sentimental saps and love gaming history.

Here is a breakdown of the systems I currently use, the progress of my baby PC build, some of my favorite games and what I am currently playing.
