Welcome to my blog! Here I will share whatever is on my mind that I deem worth sharing. There will be some topics that I write about more often than others, and these will be neatly placed in their own categories. Common topics will include spirituality, social commentary, and autism.

I am an empirically agnostic pagan, optimist, and lover of life. I also have a diagnosed ASD (formerly known as Aspergers), but I don’t let it hold me back! 

Please pardon the chaos as I transition from polytheism to a non-theistic spirituality rooted in the natural world. This blog began with a heavy focus on my polytheism, so the changes may throw some of you for a loop. I am fickle and adventurous and constantly re-evaluating my beliefs. This blog is my space to be myself, freely and without shame. 

Things I love: Tea (unflavored loose-leaf), Coffee (strong and black), Astronomy, physics, math, literature, languages, reading, documentaries, weightlifting, playing the piano, the 80s, goth fashion, futurepop, dark wave, Michael Jackson, autumn, night, Montana, fairies, rainbow sprinkles, dragons, butterflies, vintage MLP, Disney movies, the ocean, the mountains. . .

What I don’t love: Crumbs, modern horror movies, wasps, hot weather, bad smells, boring things, sports, eating mushrooms or onions, slimy stewed tomatoes, too much jelly in my sandwich, too much frosting on my cake, Florida, rap music, grocery shopping, hugs. . .

Random trivia: I’m childfree; Scorpio (Scorpio/Saggitarius cusp in tropical, Libra/Scorpio cusp in sidereal); don’t drink soda pop; don’t smoke; don’t have any tattoos . . .

  1. Hi and thank you for following. Hi5 fellow strong black coffee consumer ❤ However i do absolutely love coffee and pretty sure i drink way too much of it 🙂


    • I used to drink a lot of coffee, but I hated getting headaches every time I forgot my morning brew, so I decided to cut back. I’ve discovered so many different kinds of tea since then that it’s not too much of a sacrifice 🙂
