Who We Are

Welcome, fellow stranger, to The Lonely Tribalist, a blog run by Michelle, a 23 year old college super senior studying Applied Linguistics graduate looking toward a bright future of tricked out ramen dinners and taking people’s orders for coffee. By her side is her support companion, Moose, a 37 year old world-weary traveler intent on spreading the gospel of sustainability and tribalism one impromptu Starbucks conversation at a time. (Moose isn’t so much into maintaining a blog and is more content with bouncing ideas, so Michelle will be the author of all the posts.) Read the extended “about us” post here.

Join us over a bowl of dank homemade mac ‘n cheese in ruminating the conundrum of feeling alone in a world of 8 billion people. We’re trying to discover (or re-discover) what it means to be in touch with our tribal instincts, as super social animals – and what the hell “tribal” even means in the modern context.

Feel free to hit us up at mooseandmichelle@gmail.com and any of our other social media outlets. We sincerely believe in creating community, responding to all comments and correspondences, and trying to be as rad of human beings as we can muster. So again, welcome to the madness, and we look forward to hearing from you. [Also, if we don’t get back to you very quickly, we’re either hitchhiking, Netflixing and chilling, or we’ve fallen victim to the robo-zombie apocalypse.]

  1. Hi! I was contemplating in an idle fashion on my college days when I remembered about your blog. I hope you are doing well. I see that you haven’t posted in a while. I hope you are that same old awesome self dishing out Monty Python quotes and ofttimes being witty, in that order. 🙂

    I myself have been busy running the rat race. Didn’t have the time to read many blog entries you made post SoS. In case you are doing well It’ll be awesome if you winked, that’s if you remember me, if you don’t- do it all the same.

    1. Hey there, mister. Of course I remember you 🙂 Thanks for dropping by and saying “hi.” I hope the grind of adulthood isn’t wearing you down to terribly. We’re actually just getting started with putting life back into this blog. And a comment like yours helps to inspire us! Thanks again and hope to see you around some more soon 😉


  2. Personality plus all over the place. There’s almost nothing better than conversational (written) dialogue. If I thought you could hear me, I would have happily exchanged goofy talk back with you. Humor is right up most people’s alley. I personally like the snarky way it’s applied here. Cool beans!!!

  3. I just found your blog in my Reader, and I have to say, you made me spew my morning coffee out my nose with the caption under the title about the Pomerianian on Donald Trump’s head. That’s too hilarious.

  4. Hi, Moose and Michelle! I’m so glad you found me through OM. As often happens, I find connections with other bloggers. For instance, my brother-in-law is a retired linguistics professor. Also, sustainability is an important thing in our family, with a daughter involved in environmental science and my having spent a lot of time fighting against fracking and for renewable energy.

  5. Hi there Moose & Michelle!, Michelle & Moose!,
    Don’t panic!
    This is not really my usual thing, but I’ve nominated you for a web-log award (which means you’ve actually won a melodramatically-titled award – yay!), and it’d be sweet if you checked it out. You are under NO obligation to do anything; but you have been named as a web-log I value. Take that howsoever you choose, and I hope you enjoy and can find room for a square-shaped assemblage of many-coloured pixels in your web-log trophy room!

  6. Nice to meet you guys…so cute! But maybe you should have your own signatures like Mo or Mi…just so I know who is on the other end of the screen. Seriously though, looking forward to follow both of your discoveries =)

    1. Thanks for your kind words! And that’s an idea… The thing is, however, is that Michelle is the one who posts regularly. Moose’s duty is to have ideas run by him, which is why the signature changes depending on his role: Michelle and Moose, Michelle (& Moose), Michelle, etc. He’s an idea man – but the blogging part is more Michelle’s thing 😀 “Mo” and “Mi” is adorable, though.
