What even is this blog?
Mostly a mess, but the title pretty much sums this up. I can’t go on any real-life, fantastical adventures, so this is my alternative. You and I are gonna journey through books and writing and all sorts of fun stuff. There shall be music, book reviews, activism, feminism, fangirling, thinky posts, possible dinosaurs, crazy gifs, and lots of flailing. Be prepared. It’ll definitely be awkward, hopefully be intelligent, and probably be fun.
Check out Things Not Allowed for my basic comment policy and more stuff I really don’t want to see on this blog- basically cursing and general rudeness/disrespect of people. THAT’S NOT NICE, Y’ALL. 😦
Who am I, anyway?
I’m Evi, short for Eviline, your friendly local juniper tree, dinosaur, and hugeeee dork.
That probably wasn’t what you were expecting as an introduction to me, but it’s mostly true.
Occasionally, I shriek at these odd papers we call books, frustratedly ponder at a blank Word document, and make obnoxious noises through this weird thing called a saxophone. I do art, too, though that’s a whole nother level of joy or tears. My “pondering-at-a-blank-page”s mostly tend to be unplotted and unwritten…though I’m changing that. Slowly. Maybe. Someday.
(Let’s just face it, it’ll be a while.)
I am a very quirky person, and sometimes when I am a) excited b) happy c) upset or d) confused, I wave my arms. This is apparently known as flailing, and kind of resembles Kermit the Frog. Or a cockroach, if you’re my dad. I also sometimes say words in completely unintelligible order…which probably won’t be good at futuristic job interviews.
Though you probably don’t care. That’s okay. About Me pages can be kind of boring, and I’m honestly no good at them. (This is me trying to be funny, if you haven’t noticed. Ha. Ha. I have a feeling it’s not working.) Go do something more productive with your time…or stick around! I’d be cool with that. Very cool. (I’m trying to be suave here, guys. Help me.)
tl; dr: I’m an awkward duck who fumbles around a lot with everything. I will probably enjoy your presence, and I eat books and music a lot. My name’s Evi, and I may or may not be a dinosaur.
