Hi. I’m Alex Black (he/him/his pronouns, and yes, that is a pseudonym). I’m an aromantic asexual transgender atheist, and I like to blog about all those things. A disproportionate number of my posts are about atheism. I make no apology for this.
When I started this blog, I thought I would be blogging about dreaming and lucid dreaming, but I haven’t been. I love dreaming, and I keep a dream journal so that I can remember my dreams (you’d be surprised how much something simple like that can improve dream recall), but other than that I haven’t done much to try to have lucid dreams in a few years. I still manage to get lucid in my dreams every once in while, anyway. It’s a great deal of fun.
One of the things I blog about that I wasn’t intending to originally is my depression. I have recurrent major depression. It sucks. Sometimes, it interferes with my blogging. If I’m not blogging as much because I’m depressed, I’ll probably write a blog post about that. Or, I might just drop off the net and randomly reappear weeks or months later. I do that sometimes.
Feel free to comment on any of my posts, including old ones. Just keep in mind I may not currently hold all the same opinions as those which I expressed in posts written years ago.
Note- On a previous version of this page I said that “it” is not a gender-neutral pronoun. What I should have said instead is that by gender-neutral pronouns I meant stuff like they/them/theirs or ze/hir/hirs, and that referring to any person as “it” is really disrespectful and dehumanizing unless that person specifically requests to be referred to that way.
