Not the Main Character

I am the main character in my story. I rather like being one, since the title gives me good authority to claim that my narrative is the correct one. People come and go, either as side characters or as background actors their paths briefly crossing mine. I am their Stormtooper #10, and they are a blurry face in the noise to me.

Not to say that Stormtrooopers aren’t super cool, but they do look awfully similar for some reason…

As I meander through my life, this main character often likes to imagine what life is like through the eyes of random people she passes by on the street. In the closed reference frame of my eyes, my worries and my problems are everything… yet mean nothing to a vast majority of people. It’s calming in a way, seeing how the tornadoes in my life are spring breezes in the grand scheme of things.

Oh, the greatness of boxes

Boxes are pretty great.

I mean, look at them:

Look at them!!

Boxes are a great way to create distinctions between “this” and “that”. This is inside the box, that is outside. This is the problem I’m addressing right now, that is the one I’ll fix tomorrow.

First post, introductions and the like.

Hi there, faceless reader!

I’m Sophie.

I like robots and code, lettuce and tomatoes, guitar and piano. I try to learn a bit of everything while I can, because there are too many amazing things in this world to be left not learned.

This blog will be a catalog of things happening in my life, but the first few posts will likely be me cleaning out my local folders of things I’d like to keep on the web for posterity.

I hope you’ll find interesting things on this site, and at least crack a smile at some of my jokes. (Hey, let me believe I’m at least a little bit funny! >//<)
