I read like it's my job. I really hate not being stimulated and need to constantly be learning. I love it when someone beats me at a game.
I climb trees higher than is appropriate. I probably feel too comfortable on a jungle gym. I play "The Ground's Hot Lava" regardless of who's watching.
I use "I" statements in sequences of three. I'm unpredictable.
The Internet is the best thing that has ever happened to society. The content on the Internet is the worst thing that society could possibly create. I spend way too much time on Facebook but cannot for the life of me understand Instagram.
Nothing gets me more excited than when a new Ta-Nehisi Coates article pops up in my RSS feed. Except perhaps when Vox puts out a new policy podcast.
I'm attracted to both women and men, but I don't think I could date a straight person. Even if our genitals are mismatched, it'll be a queer relationship. I was raised by a pack of wild lesbians and I don't understand the institution of marriage. Seriously.
After journeying through varying lifestyles and careers (TV spokesperson, middle-management-hack, workaholic, student, journalist), I had a totally awesome made-for-an-Oxygen-channel-movie quarter-life crisis and became incapable of working anywhere without purpose. I make a fraction of what I use to but I no longer sit in my car and think "WHY!?" on a daily basis so I'm happy.
I currently teach elementary school kids math and spelling via huge, high-energy games, and write for a local political organization like there's no tomorrow. I recently discovered RSS and it's like crack. If crack is good for you. Having steered clear of hard drugs in my youth, I'll take your word for it.
During my moments of free time, I bike, cook from scratch, dance till I'm sweaty, and gulp scotch.
I volunteer everywhere, am obsessed with local politics and think activists are super hot (which makes me.... wait for it....).
People tell me I get a lot done but I just don't watch television and I drink a lot of coffee. How could you not be out there being a part of your community?
I want so dearly to spend another half a decade in college but have zero desire to pay the current immoral and imprudent tuition rates, so I'm seeking out knowledge anywhere I can find it. Teach me. I'll return the favor.
Citing myself in the footnotes.
Talking to Strangers.
Saving the World.
Super Smash Brothers
I am in love with Le Sexoflex - although I won't defend it as anything other than miraculous. - http://vimeo.com/12558920
I also really like Nerd-Core Hip Hop, conscious rap, and albums describe in iTunes as "Gay Pop." I've been asked multiple times to write music reviews in the past and always refuse because I know my tastes are shit. But I shake my ass a lot.
VEGETABLES FROM TRADER JOES! And olive oil. And Sriracha. And Mozzarella. Now I'm fucking hungry.
How many ex-sex partners I can have as FaceBook friends.
Whether the system as it is benefits me unfairly.
Income distribution, regressive taxation, novel new policy tricks, whether or not we can reframe the question, if I can find a better source for my citation.
Math. And the philosophies that can be derived from it.
The man in the mirror.
Still a fan of dancing on a weekend, or grabbing a drink at Pony. Or staying in playing a game of Magic with friends.
Also what happened to Capitol Hill? I'm much more likely to enjoy getting a drink on a Monday night than Friday/Saturday when the whole place is taken over by heterosexual amateur drinkers.
...you're up for at least one crazy evening.
...you're in or around Seattle, I'm not a commuter.
