About Patch and this Blog
-I'm known on the internet as Patch.

On Tuesday, I packed up, moved out of my dorm; and came home after my first year of university. I wrapped all my sacred items in tissue paper for the journey home, gave thanks to any spirits that may reside in … Continue reading
My favourite (and the most effective) way that the gods get me to notice them is by persistent external signs and omens. They usually get increasingly more obvious until I have to laugh and there can be no denying that … Continue reading
