I'm not one for Valentine's Day really. I used to think it was because of all the commercialism in it. But to be honest, I don't think I'm into typical romantic ideals or gifts.

It is nearing Halloween and I have done a few good Halloween posts and now it is time for... Introvert Fears!!! Public speaking. I remember this from school.

I am all for looking for intelligent life out there since we can't find any here. Oh, wait, dolphins. So yeah there is intelligent life here. But is it anywhere else?

You're so awesome; are you sure you're not a fictional character? This is the most common question I get asked. I know, I exude awesomeness.

I'm an Atheist and I am not fond of organized religion. And just don't believe in a god of any sort. But I came up with a proof of a gods existence. While trying to sleep.
