Introduction and What the Hell I'm Doing Here

So as this blog's description says, I'm Pun.


I'm a 30-something librarian. I think that knowledge is the great equalizer and my goal in life is to give others tools that can help them succeed.

I am an Ohioan. I grew up in a rural Appalachian area now I live in a very diverse metropolitan city. To be honest, there are things about both that I love and hate. I don't call myself a Buckeye and I'm not an Ohio State fan.

I'm a big geek. I have been my entire life. This is actually my second blog. My other blog, Halls of the Nephilim, focuses on table top gaming. I also love comic books, music, horror movies, and video games. I have a love hate relationship with "geek culture." I love when people are passionate about things (which is how I define a geek). There are definitely some toxic elements though.

I'm a father. My amazing-mega-super-awesome-genius son lives with my ex-wife, but I do see him regularly and he's always in my thoughts. My ex-wife and I get along pretty good and we both have our son's best interests at heart.

I'm a fat guy. I've been a fat guy since I was about four. I struggled with that for many years. Feeling like Frankenstein's monster or Beast (which could be why I love Beauty and the Beast so much). These days, I'm wiser and have got past that. I've always been body-positive about others, but it's only in the last few years, that I've come to accept myself.  I am taking steps to be healthier, but it's because I want to feel better, not because of society.

I'm a feminist, socialist, and bleeding heart. I don't think it's crazy to want to see people treated equally. I don't think it's crazy to want people to have an equal playing field. I think the system we live in is flawed. Down with the Patriarchy and corporate bastards.

I'm agnostic. During my tween years, I started going to church. It was a holy roller, go to Jesus or go to Hell, sort of place. College and a really special person made me rethink that mindset. Reason guides me these days. That being said, my astrological sign is Pisces, and fit that signs profile closely.

I am working on improving my mental health. I've never seen a medical professional about it, but I've fought with depression my entire life. I have anxiety issues that affect me on a regular basis. That being said I'm doing what I can to be happier and live life.


Okay, so for those of you that don't know me personally, now you have a better idea of who I am. I made this blog to talk about body positivity, physical health, mental health, music, society, fashion, food, and whatever else strikes my fancy.
