Hi. I’m Rayne, a Cognitive Science and Philosophy major at Beloit College. I share my life with my partner, Aidan; a nerdy sorority; and a plush, alpaca-furred elephant called the Soft One. Oh, and you!

In this blog I explore, first and foremost, how we are human. My curiosity in this regard is infinitely stimulated by chronic illness and the shaken sense of humanity that accompanies change. I write about things that make us wonder who and what we are. My more informative posts are divided into Series. You might find a short story every once in awhile. (There’s also this video of a bird eating my hair.)

I make Printables to organize my messy self as I blaze/saunter/stagger through the years. Perhaps they will help you, too.

That’s all for now. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me here.

The soft one living its soft life.
