Hello! ::waves:: I'm a geek groupie who likes smart, articulate people who think critically about the world. I also really love adventure. I've traveled to Japan, Ecuador, and parts of Europe; thrown sparks off the cliffs of Minnehaha Falls; swam in the ocean on Valentines Day; and spend my time swimming, climbing, and learning American sign.
I engage myself in consensual open relationships. This means I have multiple relationships of varying degree at the same time. Currently I'm single.
If you're queer, I want to know you.
Heads up: I don't respond to one sentence "how are you's." And sorry couples, I'm not interested.
What I’m doing with my life
I work with small children and I love my job to death. The kids are awesome, and it's a great mix of teaching social skills and consent. I'm hoping to help create a generation of adults who can ask first.
I’m really good at
I am really good at reading All The Cookbooks! I've been known to lose hours to the task. Right now I'm working through 660 Curries. I'm taking it one recipe at a time- with each requiring several creations and special tasks to complete before I can even start the recipe!
Additionally, here are the answers an old roommate gave me: Whipping up delicious stuff in the kitchen, looking ridiculously fucking cute and snuggles.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, compassion and silliness. That I live life outside of the
guidebooks that were handed over at birth.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV: Dr. Who, The Office, 30 Rock, Dexter, Rick and Morty
Movies: Across the Universe
Books: Hyperion, Ender's Game, Calvin and Hobbes, Daring Greatly
Magazines: The Sun, New Scientist
Food: The buffet in God's heaven includes full fat Greek yogurt, cream top Brown Cow yogurt, fresh strawberries, spicy thai panang curry, and Pizza Luce's Athena. To name a few!
The six things I could never do without
I couldn't go without seeing myself as a good friend, and treating myself accordingly. Generally speaking, though, I believe humans are infinitely adaptable. Here's a list of things I would have a hard time giving up:
-Cookbooks and dinner parties
-Having children within an arms reach somewhere in my life
-Traveling (Next up: Thailand or Germany!)
-Amazing friends and family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How people interact with the world. Why they do what they do.
(read: anthropology major)
How I would like to be in the world, and what steps I need to take
to become that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Varies. I don't drink often and detest loud bars. Quieter ones are okay. You'll probably find me at a friend's house or hosting a party of my own. I host really good parties, if I don't say so myself. (read: naked!)
