    PaganPoet is no more.

    Back in June, I quickly needed to change my username to escape detection from my then-wife. I chose PaganPoet in a hurry. Contrary to the assumptions of most people who don't know me, I am neither a Pagan nor a Poet. The name comes from a Bjork song, Pagan Poetry, on her album...

    I kept coming up with usernames already taken

    as I tried to set up my account, so I decided I would just put a random set of letters and numbers in for now, thinking I will just change it later but now I've decided to keep my username as is.

    The story behind my Username is

    that I'm a very cool person once you get to know me. I also don't look like my age at all. I'm a kid at heart even though I'm 23.

    Well, ladies and gentlemen of the jury,

    it's a play on the term "badgering the witness." I like to play with words, and that's what I did. What I came up with does suit me, but not for the reason I'm starting to see people on this site think. When I'd used this site under a different name, my jokes and opinions didn't...

    Alana Unrest

    Alana Unrest is the name of my alter ego. She is everything I aspire to be. Alana means 'precious awakening' and Unrest refers to a state of discontent, of not being happy with the way things are. She stands for change & for awakening, and she will not rest until she gets there.
