Why does my site look so old-school?

My website over the years has gone through many iterations of things I thought looked clean, fancy, and professional. While it looked nice, I didn't necessarily have fun creating these sites, and felt very limited as to what I could put on my webpages. I decided, finally, that I would just enjoy my site and have fun with it rather than make it look nice for unseen visitors. Therefore, my site looks very yester-web because I like it that way. I think this is much more fun than your classic bootstrapped together website. Hope you enjoy. To see what my site looked like before, click here.
