My name is Red, and I like to write. Perhaps too much. (The Internet is a textbook enabler when it comes to this.) I like to call myself a bedroom floor philosopher, and as far as I know, I did invent the genre. So here, have my steady stream of blather and nonsense – usually bedroom floor philosophizing about ideology and love, life updates, and me trying to be funny.
Oh yeah, and if you’re wondering why things around this blog are named the way they are, the blog itself is called Along the Milky Way because high school Red once thought to herself, “Are there signposts along the Milky Way?” and then decided that since she needed more signposts in her life, she’d call this blog after the thought. As for why this page is called Espionage…it’s a top secret factoid that definitely has nothing to do with the fact that I was a weird teenager spying on a crush once.
I’m a pretty classic big-dreaming small-town kinda girl. I live in Idaho, study business and language, and studied abroad in northern Sweden once upon a time. My ambitions in life center around international business, cultural education, language learning, and books. I skew hard capitalist/libertarian (I think I invented the term capitarian, too, but I’m not sure), and I’m kind of a nerd about spices. Among other things.
