About Me

I’m Sarah, and live in Missouri, where there are fewer tornadoes than in Texas and even fewer hurricanes.

I like geology,weather, history, and a whole lot of other things.

I’m a very liberal atheist.  Like, really liberal.  I support LGBTQ rights and marriage, etc, and I can get vocal about it.  I also am a strong advocate of female empowerment.

Things that get me really worked up, in no particular order:

  1. abuse of any kind, but mostly domestic
  2. feminism
  3. tornado safety!!!!
  4. the yellowstone supervolcano
  5. the great mortality (the “black plague”)

I’ve been on medications since the age of seven for various mental disorders.  I don’t try to hide it because I hope that by explaining what I’ve gone through and the various medications I have taken I can help someone.  I’ve been diagnosed with clinical depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.

I’m pretty awkward socially.  I can be shy when I meet new people, especially attractive boys, and find it best to keep my mouth shut so I don’t embarrass myself.  When I do talk, I can get overexcited and/or nervous and stumble over my words or say things that I will immediately regret.  I’m trying to be more assertive.

I don’t have many friends, and I have abandonment issues.  As a result, I’m very guarded with my emotions and have trouble trusting people.

I will probably never bother to write out my life story, because I think it’s pretty lame and pathetic compared to other people’s.

Basically I was the one taking care of my three younger sisters while both my parents worked.  I was a shy, introverted kid, not well-socialized, and was bullied as a result.  I struggle with my self-image and self-worth, as well as my capability to make any difference in the world.
