When I was in high school I took a few AP classes online. The system used my first and last names, Elizabeth and Sagebiel, to come up with a personalized username: elsage. I always thought it was kind of funny and told people that if I ever opened up a Mexican restaurant I had a certain name in mind.
This blog is not quite a Mexican restaurant, but it seemed fitting. Using this name adds a kind of cohesion to my life that I otherwise lack. And Sage means “wise one” in French, but that’s more of a coincidence.
