Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum but not new to atheism. I consider myself a lifelong atheist, so that puts me at 28 years and counting. I live in Austin, TX (a bright blue dot treading water in a red sea) and originally come from Fort Worth, TX (which ain't so bad itself.)
I am currently a graduate student studying 20th-century U.S. history. From 2006-2008 I lived in rural northeastern Japan, in a beautiful fishing village which is recovering from the tsunami and which I miss greatly. I'm happily married and have a cat. My major interests include classic movies, travel, writing, history, vegetarianism (almost three years), and of course atheism. I'm a huge Trekkie as well as a Tolkien nerd.
I started following Think Atheist's Twitter feed a couple of months ago and decided to join the community. So here I am!
