I am an atheist, feminist, bisexual woman. Since I live in a fairly conservative community, and I depend on that community to make my living, I have decided for now to blog anonymously.
A few words about the title of this blog may be appropriate. I am an actuary, and the title of this blog is taken from a joke that only an actuary would understand. a(bar) or ā is an actuarial symbol used to denote a continuous annuity (don’t worry about what that means exactly). It is a silly, nerdy joke and I used it for the title of my blog because I am pretty nerdy and sometimes silly. Don’t worry, this blog does NOT contain any posts on technical actuarial matters; that would be just too boring even for me.
