My self-summary
"She's the only woman I know who liked Reservoir Dogs." -- Ray Wylie Hubbard

Language is reductive and leaves much to be desired. I hate labels, I prefer to speak objectively about others' (or my own) actions than to use labels to define them (or myself), but here we go. I'm passionate about life and the will to power. Statistically speaking I am of above-average intelligence, I make moderately funny Your Mom/That's What She Said jokes, and... I always have my towel.

Above all, I'm a staunch existentialist: existence precedes essence, no inherent meaning or value in life or things, we create our own purpose, ultimate freedom = ultimate burden, etc. That line of thought directs the vast majority of my behavior. I do my part to support social justice through education.

I am in a non-monogamous relationship with a lovely Australian man. I more closely identify with the "free love" attitude of decades past than with the militant polyamorism here on OKC. That doesn't mean I fuck everyone; I go with the flow. I get not wanting to conform to societal norms; I don't get wanting to be so rigidly defined by your relationship habits.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach Spanish. Si te gustaría platicar conmigo, por favor no dudes en mandarme un mensaje. :) I don't get paid for a tenth of what I do, but I'm basically preparing the future of our society/world for adulthood... so I've got that going for me, which is nice.

Two friends and I have recently started an educational blog about atheism. We're trying to reach out to theists, so if you believe in God and are interested in the God debate, let's talk!

I've got the travel bug and am trying to explore new places at every opportunity. One day I'll get around to teaching abroad -- I'm thinking Colombia.
I’m really good at
learning languages easily, and anything language or linguistics related is an enormous passion of mine -- particularly in an educational setting. Currently teaching myself Portuguese.

Reading people. REALLY good, which I've found to be more of a curse than a blessing. Apparently people don't like hearing they're egocentric bastards with no social skills!

You know when you think aloud, "I wonder how/if/when/why/what/who....." about trivial or odd stuff? I'm that person who knows the answer.

Over-thinking the simplest of matters. I often find myself lost in the sea of "grey area" that exists between black and white dichotomies.

Making situations awkward by laughing at seemingly inappropriate times. It's a coping mechanism.
The first things people usually notice about me
are my breasts. Sadly, that's it. (I say this with a heavy sigh and a heavier heart)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Genre-wise, classic murder mysteries (Poirot/Holmes), sci-fi/fantasy, historical fiction, non-fiction (philosophy, history, politics, biographies/autobiographies), and anything absurd or surreal. Currently reading The Fall (Albert Camus).

Movies and TV: Anything related to Top Gear UK, Monty Python, That Mitchell & Webb Look, IT Crowd, QI, Saxondale, Big Fat Quiz of the Year, MST3K, Jon Stewart, Bruce Campbell, Pedro Almodóvar, or Quentin Tarantino. El Topo and Don't Look Now! are great. well, honestly this category is so overwhelming I can't include everything.

Music: 60s and 70s prog rock, ambient/psychill, 80s pop synth, ANYTHING 90s, black/prog/folk metal, blues, bluegrass, Texas honky tonk. Listening to a lot of Camila lately.

Food: SUSHI. Mostly everything.
The six things I could never do without
Chapstick
My music library
Laughter
A prefrontal cortex (I guess technically I could do without this, but it wouldn't be the same)
Irony and absurdity
God (haha just kidding)
A will to power
The intimacy of eye contact
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how we're all made of star stuff. How vast and fucking incredible the universe is, how similar yet diverse each individual's life is.

I think a lot about the true roots of societal issues, and about how much time people waste trying to fix what they wrongly assume is the cause. I subsequently spend a lot of time considering how I can facilitate positive social change through my work and the way I live.

I often wonder, "What was Wenger thinking, sending Walcott on that early?" The thing about Arsenal is, they always try and walk it in.
On a typical Friday night I am
Haha, shit. Lately I'm lesson planning and grading on the couch with my best friends Shawn Spencer and his sidekick Longbranch Pennywhistle until I pass out around 9:30. Fun times!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been going grey since 9th grade.
I was born in the wrong decade.
I think pancakes are just a big disappointment.
I do not like or drink beer.
In my opinion, Richard Dawkins is a dick and Christopher Hitchens' God debates were repetitive, misinformed, and counterproductive.
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 26–40
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If the following accurately describes you it's not a deal breaker, but I will roll my eyes in mild exasperation: "I live in south Austin, I love riding my bike and hiking the greenbelt, I enjoy craft brews and hanging out on East 6th and talking about bacon and the zombie apocalypse. I hate summarizing myself because I don't know what to say; I read Kurt Vonnegut and Chuck Palahniuk, and love saying things like 'I wrestle bears on the moon' or 'I eat diamonds for breakfast'. Please refer to my photos to see the 2399832 countries I've visited to reiterate how cultured and progressive I am."

Otherwise, go for it. I look forward to hearing from you!
