My self-summary
I'm going to put this in big bold, capital letters:

I AM A TRANSGENDER GIRL.

So when you message me, telling me how interesting I am and how I should message you back, and I browse through your questions and under 'things I find important' I see "Would you date a transgender person? NO" it means that you should probably look elsewhere.

Okay, PSA over.

Everything below this needs to be updated pretty badly.

Note:
I'm sorry if I'm very slow on replies. I've gotten a lot more messages than I honestly know what to do with, plus projects have been keeping me busy. I typically only sit down and look through this thing once every other week or so.

Try to summarize myself, huh? Okay, here goes.

I love video games, film, animation, the internet. I spend most of my income dressing up in costumes and going to conventions. But I also love going out. I love hiking, camping, animals, and I rode horses for two years in college.

I love going out and trying new things. Crazy spontaneous adventure? I'm totally up for that! But I'm just as happy sitting at home, flipping through movies, and relaxing.

When asked to make a drinking game about my life, here's what my friends apparently feel I always do:
Talk about my dog.
Lose my keys.
Take photos of myself and anyone else.
Talk about needing more video/sound/photo equipment.
Fail to cook something.
Can't cook something, again.
Spontaneously dances.
Ask someone for a high five.
Explains a joke.
Asks someone to explain a joke.
Says "Oh, I get it!"
Dances with plushies

So I am awkward, forgetful, and can't cook despite my numerous attempts.

If you read all this, heres my Tumblr where you can see me spam fandom crap, cosplay pictures, bad jokes, cute animals, and have the occasional mental breakdown. I know, real attractive.

What I’m doing with my life
*Filmmaker working on two web series. Producer for a Halo fan film and costume designer for web series, which I'm currently under NDA for.

*Continue to improve in costuming, photography, videography, etc. through self study and work.

*Going back to school to study film production because I'm not using my fancy university PoliSci degree at all.
I’m really good at
making do. I'm often described as a human swiss army knife, filling in any role that needs to get done. While I'm rarely an expert, I'm a fast learner. Prop making, horse riding, video editing, language, HF radio theory...I have learned (and subsequently forgot) a wide variety of skills.

I'm an okay photographer, but most of my experience is in a photojournalism setting and I am currently learning to take more portrait/studio style photos as well as take advantage of my camera's video capabilities.
The first things people usually notice about me
Apparently my smile. People like it, so I guess those years of wearing braces paid off!

I've also been getting a lot of compliments on my hair lately. I haven't really had a haircut lately, but whatever I'm doing with it must be working. =)

Also, I can be horribly awkwardly shy when actually out on a date. But apparently I tend to give nervous smiles which works out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
*Halo
*Puella Magi Madoka Magica
*Persona
*Homestuck
*Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan
*Evangelion

I also love RPGs (Mostly western: Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Fallout 1&2), strategy games (From Command & Conquer to Civilization and Total War), and shooters.

I love movies and cinema. While I have a huge list of classics and favorites (I will never NOT be in awe at the first sighting of a Dinosaur in Jurassic Park), I really like films with a bittersweet ending and a realstic style to them. The Pacific, Generation Kill, District 9, and Lost in Translation are a few favorites that I've rewatched multiple times.

I love animated films, both western and east asian. Disney, Don Bluth, CGI, anime.

Bookwise, my favorite fictional books are Starship Troopers, Catch-22, and All Quiet on the Western Front. I also love biographies.

I love stories that are shades of gray, not black and white.

Music wise, I tend to like soundtracks or songs I can put a visual image to. I also like songs that juxtapose something harsher (such as rap) with something calmer (such as piano music).
The six things I could never do without
Friends
Outlet for crativity - I've realized that if I can't create something, whether it's writing, drawing, photography, costumes, etc. I slowly go stir crazy.

Hmm....I'll try to think of something else, but I've lived without anything else before and survived. =)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future: Things I want to do, things I wish I could do, projects I have on the slate, costumes I'd love to make, films I'd love to produce, where I'm going in life. I have a dozen 5-year plans ranging from vet tech to film school, and I adjust to whatever seems to be working out best at the moment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either visiting a friend's house for group dinner and hangout time, working on some crazy project (filming, propmaking, etc.), or just lounging about at home on the computer or with some video games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been in the military. I served for 7 years in the Marines, 3 deployments, 2 to Iraq, 1 to West Africa. I loved it, I'm glad I did it. I would reenlist if I could, but I can't. It seems like a strange thing to 'admit', but I find that when you mention you were in the military, people lose sight of who you are as person and just see you as an icon, whether it's as 'hero' or a 'baby killer' or simply something out of a bad Hollywood movie. It's something that is very near and dear to me, but also a part of my life that I'm leaving behind. One of my pet peeves is stupid questions about my time in or being too focused on it. I came, I saw, my contract ended. Now let's talk about my dog and that cool movie that came out last week.

If I ever seem superficial, not wanting to talk to in depth about politics, wanting to just enjoy hanging out at home or plan for a convention instead of worrying about what else is going on in the world, this is why. I feel I've earned a respite from fretting about bigger things and want to simply sit back and enjoy the little things in life.

Also, now that I've written about everything else, I'll mention that I'm transgender. You know how I talked about people losing sight of who you are? It happens all the time with being transgender. Being trans is a part of me, and I accept and am relatively open about it. But I don't generally bring it up because I want people to see the me that loves animals, makes movies, dresses up and goes to con, and laughs at stupid puns.

If either of these two admissions are things you are fixated on, then this probably won't work out.
