I’m bad at titles, so here we go…

Hello Freethought Blogs!

I guess I should start by introducing myself and this blog. I’ll try to do this without sounding too much like I’m participating in some awkward icebreaker activity, but I won’t make any promises.

Ladies, gentlemen, and non-binary folks! My name is Cadyn and this…is Small Town Deviant.

I’m 22-years-old as of recently and a bisexual non-binary human residing in a small town in Illinois (not Chicago). My pronouns are they/them/theirs. I’m a secular humanist and an atheist. I believe those labels define my views pretty well. Although, like most things in life, that can change. I’m also a third-year English-Writing major and film studies minor (unofficially, I have to create it myself) in university. I’m involved in our campus’s Secular Student Alliance as one of their three presidents (of course, this blog here is my own thoughts, not theirs), run a group that supports students with anxiety, OCD, depression, and other mental illnesses, lead groups that involve film and writing, and have been involved in the campus LGBT group in the past. As you can probably tell, I try to keep myself involved as much as possible. I’m also a fan of Tim Minchin and saw a performance of Groundhog Day in London (which is AMAZING!).
