Not impress

The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers & cities; but to know someone who thinks & feels with us, & who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.
— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe



I post really rarely. Any posts that actually appear are usually stream-of-consciousness ramblings.

About Me

From the Oregon Trail Microgeneration (aka Xennial, or the transitional microgeneration born from the mid-to-late 1970s to the early-to-mid 1980s characterized by its pre-Internet childhood and online adolescence and early adulthood.)
Pibble Mom to Raven
Homemaker (which leaves housework right out of it, thankyouverymuch!)
Fat, Introvert, Word Nerd, Reader, Gamer

I'm what most Americans consider a radical-ish left--wing liberal (though the rest of the world considers it averagely progressive). This means I believe Black Lives Matter, Trans Rights are Human Rights, Love is Love, and women should have the right to choose what to do with our own bodies. I would also rather a thousand people scam welfare than a single person who needs it go without.

I'm a cishet, white, middle-aged woman. Though I don't wear Uggs (or knock-offs) and I prefer peppermint mochas to pumpkin spice lattes, if you looked at me and said "ya basic!" you'd just be stating facts.

I was born in Colorado, but I prefer the weather in Texas, where I live now.
