My Untestimony: Part 1

This is a post I've been meaning to write for quite some time. I've been putting it off because it's not easy to write. I don't know where to start or finish, or, for that matter, what to say in between. (I'm not sure studying postmodernism benefited me. Thanks a lot, English lit.) And I've been putting it off because I'm worried about who my story is going to hurt.

But it's my story. It's not an attack. It's not a call to arms. It's just me. So here it is - or some of it.

A lot of people don't know the beginning of the story. I imagine a fair few don't know the next part yet, based on the astonished reactions I still get from people who knew me before.

Ok, it's pretty scandalous that I'm still pretending I remember any Spanish or Latin, but let's skip over that iniquity for now.

For those of you who missed the update, I am an atheist.


And for those of you who are new to my life, until as recently as a year ago, I was going to church twice a week and singing in the band with my arms raised.

Um... surprise?

Still More Library Self-Portraits

I don't have a dissertation topic. I would like to have a dissertation topic. Instead, I have anxiety, fear, grumpiness, despair, and resignation, interrupted only by the occasional moment of joy brought on by getting a pod chair in the library.

*Pod chair dance break!*

I would be well into frozen peas territory by now. But, to add insult to dissertation proposal, I don't even have any frozen peas. FML.
