Maybe that's the best way to start.

I'm a sponge and am in a stage of "post-pharmaceutical" treatment (was on testosterone for 2 1/2 years and other meds, but off of all of them). People don't really know if I'm a man or a woman, boy or girl, and the truth is, I'm both or neither. Prefer male pronouns usually, for some stability, but depending on how I'm dressed, "she" isn't offensive to me anymore. "They" is nice too. It really changes through the day! I'm a fluid person and okcupid's choices for M or F, and straight, bisexual, or gay... don't really quite define me well.
I'm thinking about grad school, leaving the area, going to Australia or Maine or France or Canada or California to maybe join the circus. I spend a lot of time performing and training in trapeze, fire arts, aerial silks, stilts, and some more things to come. Do yoga, like to go to the gym. Green-friendly but can't handle smoke. Booze-friendly but can't handle the drink. I'm usually the one too anxious to go to college parties and would rather spend time with a glass of wine with someone, elsewhere.
I like to sing and dance a lot, but sometimes I'm shy about it. Also, kind of a sapiosexual. I have a funny diet and like decorating. Creating art or some sort. I have a thing for tattoos and septum piercings. I think Rooney Mara, Sam Rockwell, Jason Gordon-Levitt, Edward Norton, Lily Cole, Dita Von Teese, and Joe Pug are attractive. I am of the theatre/performance art breed. I am fascinated with commedia dell'arte. I want to be a poly-glot. Speak German to me.
