    S74rxed (Star-Crossed)

    I'm unfinished. I'm confused,

    lost, I don't know who I am or where I'll be. Let's take a deep breath. Now peer into my head. Careful not to get lost. In my head I see a painter. A painter of stars. He's French I suppose, he's old and has a long grey beard. His eyes are worn, yet still filled with...

    Color Me Stupid.

    I get really bummed out, person after person, saying how my name is a put down to myself and asking why I set it as that. For one, I am not stupid, and I know that. Color me stupid is lyrics from my favorite band, in one of their best songs.  When I was 14 or 15, I was looking...

    I just changed my username a few minutes ago.

    Oq is the first part because its my nickname (pronounced ock). I legally changed my name to Oq, and years later changed it back to my birth name, but Oq is still my nickname. When I changed my name to Oq, I was just trying to craft a name that looked and sounded exactly perfect...

    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...

    What does my username really mean?

    I just changed my username today,

    because I got bored with my old username. I wanted PinkIsTheNewBlack but it's taken, so I used this instead. It's read as "Pink's the new black". I've never watched Orange is The New Black but I think the saying "X is the new black" is cool.
