My self-summary
Space. The final frontier.

Now that I've got your attention, hi! I like Star Trek, Chess, video games, nature documentaries, space, tumblr, body modification, and social activism.

I have a boyfriend and am just looking for friends, btws.

I'm asexual (here's a resource http://www.asexuality.org/home/overview.html ) so you should educate yourself rather than ask me (a stranger) personal and intimate questions about my specific sexuality.

I use they/them pronouns, I identify as androgynous although biologically speaking I am clearly female and make no attempt to hide presenting as such.

I have 6 piercings and 1 tattoo and I love them all.

INTP in case you're interested. Myers-Briggs is far from perfect but it still conveys a lot of information about a person.
What I’m doing with my life
First year at New College of Florida.
Area of Concentration: Physics/Applied Math

After which I plan on pursuing a PhD and teaching english in South Korea, not sure on the order of those though.
I’m really good at
knowing the most random factoids that you have ever heard. A groups of flamingos is called a flamboyance. When will that be useful? Well, obviously for impressing a bunch of strangers on the internet.

Anyways, I also excel at learning things and problem solving to a ridiculous degree. I have the spatial reasoning skills of a Tetris god.
The first things people usually notice about me
Now it's my piercings but it used to be either my height, my flaming ginger hair, or my sarcasm.

The six things I could never do without
The internet.

I think the rest is superfluous but I'll expand for the sake of getting to know me:

1. The Internet
2. A means of accessing the internet preferably in laptop form
3. Games (board, card, video, just all games)
4. My books
5. Something sweet to nibble on
6. Intelligent conversation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How they changed the opening monologue of Star Trek TNG to "Space. The Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before" from the TOS version "where no man has gone before" and how much it means to me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing bughouse (chess) with a group of friends or playing a group game of drunk xcom (ask me the rules. You won't be disappointed.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have owned every single Pokemon game. And I brought my GameCube to college for the sole purpose of playing Colosseum and XD.

Also, my chess.com username is quetzalcoatl42 Add me!
You should message me if
You wanna smoke/chill. It's gonna be a long summer if I don't find a friend.

Don't be disheartened if I don't respond. Normally I don't respond to messages consisting entirely of one syllable or messages which objectify me in anyway. If you sent me a real, rationed, and engaged response to my profile, your chances of me responding go up drastically.
