Welcome!

Hullo and welcome! cygnoir.net is a personal website that has existed in some form or another since May 1998. It is written and produced by me, Halsted, a/k/a Cygnoir. It is a place where I share some of the things that matter to me.

I’m glad that you’re here.

FunkyPlaid and I saw the Mister Rogers documentary tonight and I set a new personal record: I started crying 10 seconds in.

πŸ“Ί Watched Hannah Gadsby: Nanette (2018). Don’t read any reviews or think-pieces about this. Just watch it.

FunkyPlaid gave me this beautiful enamel pin. I refuse to sink.

Recently I have been using PokΓ©mon GO to take more walks (read: drag my patient husband around the block late at night). My Trainer Code is 8105 0156 9090 if you are also inflicting this odd game on someone you love. πŸ•ΉοΈ

My team gave me such a thoughtful gift for my 2nd anniversary of working at the library. I’m so lucky! 😍
