I am a Christopagan witch attending a small college in a small town in Oklahoma. I have yet to come out of the broom closet completely, but I'm in the process of starting a group for fellow pagans in the area.
I like pretty much anything that makes me laugh or creeps me out (in a good way). Sometimes there is no distinction.
I am the entertainment/lifestyles editor of my university's newspaper and I like my job quite a bit. I'm majoring in mass communications, minoring in English, and I hope to work for an entertainment magazine someday, preferably of an "alternative" persuasion.
I'm a pescotarian and, deep down, I have a hippie side that comes out every now and then. I'm originally from California; that might have something to do with it.

Beliefs / Practices
Occultist, Pagan, Witch, Other Spirituality
My theology is based on Christianity. I view the Christian trinity basically the same as a Wiccan would view his or her gods -- Jesus Christ is my God, the Gnostic goddess Sophia (my concept of the Holy Spirit) is my Goddess, and the Supreme Creator is the two in unison which could be equated to God the Father (though I don't think that aspect of God has a gender...similarly, I don't think in terms of absolute gender in any facet of my life, which is one reason I can't relate completely to Wicca). I've tried to become acquainted with the Wiccan God and Goddess and it was just awkward; the gods of my upbringing never steered me wrong so I had no reason to dispose of my relationships with them. However, church and much Christian dogma has steered me wrong, so I try to distance myself from organized Christianity. I do go to a Unitarian-Universalist fellowship, however.
I am a panentheist and maybe a little bit of a pantheist, though not really. I believe in the spirits of nature as sacred beings because they are perfect and pure creations of Deity. Everything has that universal divine spark and nature contains it so flawlessly.
I celebrate the Wheel of the Year and the full moons in an (obviously) solitary way. I practice largely informal magic and divination so I guess that makes me a witch.
The internet, socializing, reading, dancing (especially belly dance), singing, acting, playing video games, taking walks, going to live music shows and other events, furthering my religious/spiritual practice
...Is a good TV show! :)
How did you find PaganSpace?
I heard about it from my CUUPs group.
