honest thoughts about life, people, God, and doing what's right–>

About >>africanstardust July 27, 2009

I never know what to say on these “about me” things, so I’ll just say this.

I write. I have several blogs that you can find links to on the sidebar, I write poetry, prose, short stories, and longer things (they want to be novels when they grow up), and sometimes I even tackle essays just for the heck of it.

I also read. I love almost any genre and I will read almost anything because a) I’m not afraid that it will make me change my beliefs and b) I think that to live in the world and be relevant you have to know what’s going on and what people are interested in. Of course, I have plenty of friends who don’t read at all and they’re relevant and involved – but everyone has their own way of getting there, and mine is reading.

This really should be at the top, but sometimes putting something last makes it just as effective. I am a Christian. I don’t always love God, I don’t always read my Bible every day, I don’t always go to church regularly, and I sometimes snap at people and am a truly horrible person. But I’m a Christian, I’ve given my life to God (because really, it wasn’t mine to begin with…I don’t recall creating myself), and I trust that He is working in me to make me how He wants me to be.

I’m not perfect, I don’t pretend to be perfect, and frankly, perfect people frighten me because they must be hiding something humongous. But I can write. So I hope you get something out of the blogs.
