Happy September!

For the past few months I’ve been tossing around the idea of starting a blog to discuss the changes I’ve gone through, and the lessons learned.

Who am I, you might be wondering?

  • I’m a Midwestern girl living in the DC area, figuring out what I want to be when I grow up.
  • I’m 37.
  • I’m starting a new full-time job in 6 days.
  • I own a dog (female) and 3 cats (male), all neutered.
  • I’ve never been married, though I was briefly engaged in 2004.
  • I was brought up Catholic, spent a few years professing to be pagan, but currently have no spiritual or religious path.
  • I’m a liberal, but I don’t enjoy discussing politics, because it tends to get heated very quickly, and I don’t follow the news closely enough to feel I can defend my position adequately.

You’ll find out more if you continue to read this blog.


About Bevin

I grew up reading stories of all kinds, but the fantasy genre has long been a favorite. Whether it's knights and sorcerors, Jedis or Browncoats, I love them all. I wanted to find my own secret passage to Narnia, study with the Heralds of Valdemar, or become a member of the elven wolfrider pack. I'm sure it was no surprise to my parents that when I discovered there was a club at my college dedicated to medieval life, I'd join. They likely didn't expect that 15 years later, I am still an active member. I acquired the nickname "Bevin the SnarlingBadger" from a friend in the Society for Creative Anachronism, an international not-for-profit educational organization which focuses on studying aspects of medieval life through first-person, hands-on research and practice. Yes, for some that means strapping on armor & practicing combat. For others it means studying a particular culture and time period, developing a "slice of life" persona. For me it means exploring arts & sciences, dressing up in pretty gowns, hanging out with other people who enjoy doing things the "hard way." Outside of the SCA, I'm passionate about animal rights & pet nutrition (and I'm trying to convince myself to eat healthier too), I love movies, audiobooks, tv (Netflix and Hulu are frequent accompaniment for craft-time), crochet, handspinning... I've also been playing Star Wars: The Old Republic, since I was invited to participate in beta testing. I love the immersive quality of the game, and play primarily to watch the stories develop. So, this is a bit of me. There's more. Thanks for stopping by!
