* It is not having been in the dark house, but having left it, that counts.* - Theodore Roosevelt
"It is better to light a candle than to curse in darkness." ~ Chinese proverb
"I'd be a Buddhist if I weren't so frigging mad all the time." ~ Me
I'm Your Basic Internet Dilettante Sometimes my posts are insightful and sometimes they're just fluff. I make some people laugh and some people think and some people angry. I am happy to take credit for doing all three.
I want to know your story! I want to read anything you have to say, no matter what you post. I love to read about other people's lives, whether you got up and had a taco today or are working on a federally-funded program to create an oceanic map of the underside of glaciers, I want to know about it!
A lot of my entries might seem trivial, but that's only because I focus more on presenting comedy or a fun, escapist atmosphere to my journal. Just because I'm not posting links to Human Rights Watch or to CNN's coverage of the latest natural disaster doesn't mean I am unaware of it--nor does it mean I don't want to talk about it. I just tend to focus on the silly, amusing, or bizarre in my LJ posts.
In 2006 I sat on the Otronicon 'Girls in Gaming' Discussion Panel. I was proud to do it and got to meet some very interesting people. I haven't been as hardcore into the games as I used to be but still regularly enjoy console gaming.
I lift weights, paint, write, read, watch, and observe.
When I'm being productive, I make and sell things on my etsy page, Klockwerk Haus . It isn't updated very regularly!
I am a frustrated writer, trying to finish one of the many novels that spring to my head and then take years to complete the birthing process. Like Kafka, who was described as 'the unicorn in the forest of modern literature,' I don't fit in anywhere. And proud of it.
