About Me

I’m awesome.

I work for a government department, a pretty cool one so I’m lucky!

I like to read, a lot.

I like music, a lot. (Who doesn’t though? 🙂 )

I enjoy etymology. It’s weird, but it just makes my brain happy.

Ask me if you want to know anything. Always up for a chat! 🙂

Favorite Quotes

“I guess I just prefer to see the dark side of things. The glass is always half empty. And cracked. And I just cut my lip on it. And chipped a tooth.”
– Janeane Garofalo

“Pain is weakness leaving the body”

…“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”
— Buddha
