I spend the majority of my time working and what free time I do have tends to go towards activism and causes that I care about. I'm very passionate and put my all into everything I do. Veganism is a really big part of my life; I'm very much an anti-speciest.
What I’m doing with my life
I work two jobs, one in logistics and the other in retail. I'm in a union at one of them, and try to be pretty involved with it. I love filing grievances. I'm planning on getting my Irish citizenship soon. Chucking everything away and moving over there gets more appealing every day.
I’m really good at
Working on campaigns, tabling, petitioning, picketing, speaking at
rallies, and otherwise riling up the masses.

My favorite movie is The Crow, with Donnie Darko being a close second.
I also love anything Miyazaki. Lost In Translation is amazing; Bill Murray is one of my favorite actors.
I also think Harold and Maude is one of the most romantic movies ever.
Shows - Breaking Bad, Cheers, Greek, That 70's Show, Caprica, Invader Zim, Cowboy Bebop, Portlandia.

Radio-wise, I'm fond of listening to WMNF and KEXP.
Food - Vegan. I like Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, and Mexican. I'm always up for getting falafel. I enjoy cooking quite a bit, though it's very difficult for me to find time to do so.

On a typical Friday night I am
Working and wishing that wasn't a typical Friday night for me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm naturally quite shy and anti-confrontational, which is a direct contrast to the life I try to lead. Overcoming these things is a daily struggle for me.
You should message me if
you find me interesting. I'm always up for talking about current issues and politics. If you care deeply about animals, you should as well. And if you like post-punk we'll definitely get along. Oh, and if you want to grab a drink, definitely always up for that. I'd also love to have someone to go motorcycle riding with.
