About me

"So, what's it like in the real world? Well, the food is better, but beyond that, I don't recommend it."~Bill Watterson

Hi, I'm the Sojourner. You can also call me Megan, and I look like this:

I don't use my last name or say exactly what city I live in, but I'm not too worried if you figure it out. I am a melancholic or an INTJ or a Six depending on which system of personality classifications you prefer. Basically I am quiet and suspicious and prone to fits of existential angst. I dislike unfamiliar or overstimulating situations, but I also dislike being bored. I like babies, anything made of chocolate, books, systems for classifying things, and pretending to be a homesteader while living in a tiny city apartment.

When I started this blog, I was a college freshman a few days shy of my 18th birthday and had never been on a date. I did have a major, hopeless crush on this really nerdy boy who also had a blog, though. (Said blog is no longer online, so my inane comments are safe from the world.)

As it turned out, my crush wasn't so hopeless after all. Scott and I married in November of 2011 and had our first child in November of 2013. (Apparently November is a good month for us.) I call the baby Tad on the blog but his real name is much more awesome.

Right now I pretty much talk about the baby nonstop, but in the past the blog has involved attempts at being theological or philosophical (the fact that I don't know the difference between those two tells you something about how successful the attempts were...) writing about writing, black humor about mental health issues, and all sorts of other random stuff. Attempts at sticking to one thing have failed miserably, so now I just do what works for me and am happy whenever somebody is willing to follow my rabbit trails.

I don't know how to end this page (I'm terrible at writing About pages in general), so here's a picture of a baby:

He is awfully cute :)

Oh my goodness he was so tiny in that picture! I think it is almost 6 months old now.

I didn't read this ever! I might have read an old incarnation of this post, before you had Tad or something.

I enjoy your rabbit-trails, so bring 'em on! Also, it is very easy to be philosophical about theology, and theological about philosophy. Or something like that. So they can be easily mixed up, because they constantly have raids on each other, or else share each other's property; figure it out for yourself.
