My self-summary
Young and restless. Scorpio to the bone. Queer as a three dollar bill. ENFJ to a T, and kind of potty mouth (I could rattle off several more tag lines, but it boils down to "I play nice with others, unless you're an asshole").

I'm a creative type. I'm a bit all-over-the-place, my apartment is only ever ridiculously messy or frighteningly clean, sleep is always optional, and of course, I have a love-hate relationship with cigarettes. My artistic practice is primarily drawing, but I also love painting, collage, and most recently, performance art. After graduating from SAIC next spring with my BFA, I'll hopefully be staying at SAIC to pursue my Masters of Arts in Art Therapy.

I do best with people who can be understanding of my flaws even if they don't share them, and are comfortable/good at providing support when I ask for it. I'm upfront about my emotions, I'm down to give tough-love when necessary, and I won't bring any passive-aggressive bullshit your way. I work hard, play hard, and love hard. Let's get rowdy.
What I’m doing with my life
Nose to grindstone. SAIC. BFA. Then MAAT. Right now I'm working as a Summer Housing Assistant at SAIC's main housing facility in the Loop, and I'm loving it so far.

Other stuff I do: making art, looking at art, reading about art theory, reading about art history, reading about art therapy, reading about psychology/sociology/psychiatry, reading feminist literature, reading medical journals/medical articles/doing medical research, surfing the web aimlessly, writing (poorly), socializing, drinking, smoking cigarettes/cigars/weed, watching a shit ton of tv and movies, listening to comparable amounts of music, eating.

I travel a lot through my school on grants and scholarships, and I traveled with my family a lot when I was younger, before my dad got sick. I feel very blessed to have seen so many parts of the world at such a young agew. Most recent adventures over the last several years have included Tokyo, Kyoto, Prague, Vienna, and various places in France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Tahiti, and Fiji.

I also do lots of other mysterious stuff. I'm not /saying/ that I'm Batman.... but I'm just saying that no one has ever seen me and Batman in the same room at the same time.
I’m really good at
Having weird hair, dismantling the patriarchy with a flawless manicure, getting stoned, being fashionable, communicating with people, resolving conflicts, community building, making friends, making art.

Also: everything else. Ever.

Also also: I give myself an A+ in watching netflix, napping, and procrastination(/procrasturbation?).
The first things people usually notice about me
I get a lot of compliments from friendly, middle-aged black ladies about my hair/makeup/nails, so I guess that's a thing?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Catcher in the Rye, Hamlet, Macbeth, King Lear (Yes, all three), Empress Orchid, Their Eyes Were Watching God, Atonement, The Bonesetter's Daughter, Crime and Punishment, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Peony in Love, Expensive People, Zombie, An American Childhood, My Sister's Keeper, Speak, Dress Your Children in Corduroy and Denim, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, The Body in Pain, Angels In America, Touched with Fire, Blankets, Habibi, and SO many more. Guilty pleasures include Harry Potter etc. Sue me.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Silver Linings Playbook, Ruby Sparks, Zombieland, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo (2011 version), Moonrise Kingdom, 21 Jump Street, Contagion, Scott Pilgrim VS the world, Planet of the Apes, both Star Trek reboots, The Other Boleyn Girl, Batman: The Dark Knight, Pulp Fiction, American Beauty, Dead Poets Society, SLC Punk, Mean Girls, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, American Psycho, Little Children, Heavenly Creatures, Spring Breakers, Lolita, Inception, Finding Neverland, Ghost World, Mozart and the Whale, Between The Folds, Kill Bill, Donnie Darko, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, Chicago, /most/ of the Harry Potter movies, anything Pixar, anything Miyazaki, anything David Fincher, anything Tarantino, anything Wes Anderson. Many more. As in....an unhealthy many, many more (everyone's gotta have a hobby).

I've seen a lot of good TV, but I don't care enough to list it all. Typically, when people ask me what my favorite TV Show is, I respond with, "The 2007 Battlestar Galactica reboot," (which is always quickly followed up with, "but it's way better than any show called 'Battlestar Galactica' has any right to be"). If you are a fellow Battlestar enthusiast and want to geek out about it for hours, we will be friends. I also really like Sherlock (also, shhhhhhhh......Grey's Anatomy). Oh, also I just watched True Detective for the first time, and I'm in love with it.

Thai, Japanese, Greek, Italian, and anything with cheese, as cliche as that sounds, but there are just some things we cannot live without.

Music isn't even worth trying to type out. Like.... my fingers might break before I was done. Just ask me.
The six things I could never do without
opposable thumbs
high heels
Copic multiliners
maps
Spotify premium
my tempurpedic mattress
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to undermine romanticized societal misconceptions about the "manic pixie dream girl" trope; whether or not 'i' comes before 'e' in the word I'm spelling; silently scheming on cute girls who have no idea I exist; telling myself to stop abusing semicolons so much.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out being young and hot and stupid in Chicago, or trapped in my studio working way too hard for a friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I cry every time I watch The Last Samurai. And I've watched that movie a lot.
I’m looking for
  • Guys and girls who like bi girls
  • Ages 21–29
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You are not a douche canoe.
You want to dismantle the patriarchy together.
You want to smoke a cigar with me.
You can teach me how to play the BSG board game.
You are willing to take things a little slow at first.
You are down with my gender fluidity and pansexual orientation.
You won't judge my woeful incompetence with technology.
You are okay with the fact that sometimes I run 10-15 minutes behind schedule (a bad habit I've picked up from years of attending an art school).
You are in general a kind, understanding, open-minded person with a thirst for adventure, emotional growth, and social progress.

*Please note:

I don't respond to "heyyy your hot gurl," "wats up," or "hey im Kevin lets get drinks," so I wouldn't bother, Kevin.

If our match % is less than 85%, I probably won't respond, sorrynotsorry.

Also, couples: stop asking if i'll have threesomes with you! That's not what pansexual means (it means I only want to have sex with pans, duh).
