Once upon a time, years ago, Mrs. Bainbridge instructed my 3rd grade class in an ancient mystery. This secret knowledge required special paper and months of practice practice practice before we were properly indoctrinated in the ways. As it turns out, 3rd grade was the only place to practice this ancient ritual. 4th grade rolled around, and everything we had striven for was ignored. Before long, our assignments began to be completed in the computer lab as opposed to lined paper (yes, this dates me a bit).

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
