My dream is to travel and see as much of the world as possible while leaving art in my wake. Creating artwork and making people think about the world around them are the two things that I've always felt quite strongly about.
I am an art major dropout from Northwest Missouri State University, tired of the grades and stress and being too broke to keep up with school. I started college hoping to become an animator, but ended up falling in love with a school that didn't really have a strong animation program. So I branched out and learned about the other areas of art that they taught about. Drawing, painting, and ceramics studios ended up being the places where I was happiest [even if I wasn't the greatest at ceramics. Glazing that is aesthetically pleasing in any way is still a mystery to me].
I fell in love with bike riding when I was a kid and have been doing my best to be riding ever since. I rode everyday straight through the past 3 years, but fell out of it for a while when I had to move and now I'm trying to get back on the bike and out in the world again. I prefer to ride fixed gear or single speed because of the way the bike reacts to you, but I'm usually content with any kind of bike as long as I can ride.
I have a passion for gaining new experiences, learning new skills, and really just finding out stuff about the world from all kinds of different perspectives and cultures. Probably a big factor in why I want to travel so much. Also why I spend so much time on the internet; I can't travel physically, so I let my mind do the travelling for me.
I'm really looking for some people in the area to hang out with, talk to, make some art with, get crafty, go exploring, cook together. Who knows. I'm in St. Joe for a while and I currently know pretty much nobody in town. I've been travelling back and forth between Kansas City, here, and Maryville when I've got the time and the gas money to hang out with some old friends and some new ones.
I'm queer and trans*. I started taking testosterone on August 8th of 2012, and am finally starting to feel more at ease in my own skin. I prefer he/him/his or they/them/their and other neutral pronouns.
I typically find myself more interested in faab [female assigned at birth] people, but if a maab [male assigned at birth] person strikes my fancy, I sure as hell am not gonna avoid them just because of that. Androgyny and genderfuckery are two of the big things that attract me to someone. I'm typically pretty intimidated by cis males and find it easier to connect with other queers and gender variants. I've lived most of my life in the middle ground and I know it takes a certain type of person to be able to live that way. It's the kind of life that makes you strong of body, mind, and spirit and that's something that I love in other people. Well that and it's usually the people in between that are more accepting of people of the trans* variety. I'm a transitioning genderfuck and hoping to someday become the me that I've always felt I am.
I'm usually open to questions about anything, so if you wanna know more about me, just ask.
