I am a white, (mostly) straight, female Texan, and I wholeheartedly oppose the proposed Senate Bill 6 — the ‘Bathroom Bill’.
Everyone has those little things about themselves that not everyone knows, right? Not huge, deep, dark secrets, but little things that most people probably wouldn’t judge you for, but that you’ve never really thought about mentioning. Here are five of mine that are mostly pretty silly, but hopefully new to those that don’t know me super well. Enjoy!
I am a Unitarian Universalist. I have been for quite a few years. Honestly, I have been my whole life; I just didn’t always know what it was called. I do know one thing, though, talk to any UU about their path to Unitarian Universalism and it will probably have similar elements to mine; confusion, disenchantment, feelings of not belonging, or all of the above.

“Unitarian Universalism is a diverse and non-creedal faith, affirming and promoting the inherent worth and dignity of all people.”
That’s the elevator pitch we give at our church every Sunday, but ask any UU what it is, and they’ll probably have something a little different to say. Maybe it’s their church’s pitch. Maybe it’s their own interpretation. Either way, Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion with Judeo-Christian roots that believes that all humans, regardless of race, gender, gender-identity, creed, age, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, nationality, etc. is valuable and has worth and dignity. When UU’s say, “All Are Welcome”; they truly mean it.

That, my friends, is one version of introversion, but I’m here to tell you that there are a whole lot of us that are the opposite. Continue reading “I’m An Introvert, But I’m Not Shy”
I don’t have one. “What? What’s the point in making a blog post about it, then?” you’re probably wondering. I know, it seems silly to have a post titled “My Workout Routine” when I don’t even have something I can write down for you, but stay with me. Continue reading “My Workout Routine”
