Hi! My name is Tracy.
Why Feigenbaum’s World? If you were thinking my blog was named after the physicist Mitchell Feigenbaum, who’s known for his work in Chaos Theory, you’re tangentially correct. ;) I named my blog after a toy bunny owned by Fred Burkle on the series Angel. However, she undoubtedly named her bunny after him since she was studying physics at UCLA. So, that is the bunny you see as my avatar.
I am: Friendly, wordy, geeky, dorky, witty, silly, a good listener, a force of nature, a girl who wears her heart on her sleeve, fiercely loyal, trustworthy, trusting, honest, awkward, a blend of introvert and extrovert and you never know which one’s going to win out, a little naughty, feisty, someone who likes to make up her own words, caring, and I have been told by reliable sources that I am awesomesauce. ;)
Please note that there is no way I could cover them all , especially my musical and movie tastes because they are truly vast, so some of my interests are:
Comic books, cosplay, music (almost all types), video games (favs being Portal and Legend of Zelda), movies, booksbooksbooks!, all things Whedon (especially Buffy) Supernatural, and Doctor Who, cats, foxes, wolves, fat acceptance, body positive, sex positive, politics (I am very much liberal and pro-choice), women’s issues, gay issues, marriage equality, mental health issues, and atheism…just to name of few. I tend to post in high volumes and I love carrying on conversations with followers via dash replies, reblogs, and my inbox. I get into gif wars/flirting frequently. If you find that tiresome, you have been forewarned.

On the subject of atheism and mental Illness: I am not trying to convert anyone to my way of thinking when I post things about atheism. I am not trying to ram my beliefs down your throat. I’m just being open and honest about how I feel. It is my choice, my path.
I feel the same about being open with mental illness. I suffer from a mood disorder called Cyclothymia. It’s basically bipolar-lite. I rapidly cycle between highs and lows as opposed to the extended periods of time BP1 or BP2 sufferers go through. I post about these two subject because I feel there is a stigma against them. I want to make them less scary to people and maybe someone else out there might feel a little less alone because of that. Being that it is my blog, I post opinions, stuff about my life, stuff about my beliefs and things of a personal nature. In short, my blog is an extension of me so hopefully you’re cool with that and stick around. If not, I’m sorry and I will hate to see you go, but that’s your prerogative and I respect that.
My Ask Box: Is always open to you for whatever reason. Don’t be shy. I’m here if you need to talk. As I said, I’m pretty friendly so if I pop up in yours don’t be surprised. ;)
