Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hmm...mostly I like sitting at coffee shops, talking about brains
and disabilities and psychology and our lives and our histories and
bad t.v. and pop music and cats.
Social justice is important to me. I've participated in
non-hierarchical organizing in lots of [effective and not so
effective!] ways throughout the years. Now, though, I spend most of
my time in the bureaucratic world of public education because it's
where I saw the most opportunity to put my passion for
neurodiversity to good use.
I'd be amped to find someone to go to Springfield No One Leaves
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just started a new teaching job in an area where there is no
curriculum and a lot of individualized programming soooo....I'm
working a lot. Other than that I am baking, watching Orange Is The
New Black, and coffeeshopping.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being empathetic and a straight shooter simultaneously. Getting
feisty about injustice. Laughing at innuendos like a 12 year old.
Marathoning The Office, Cupcake Wars, and Bones.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.

Practices by David Finch, Not Even Wrong by Paul Collins. I also

Theory. Ru Paul's Drag Race. The Office.
Food: Indian. Ethiopian. Grapes. Oranges. Enchiladas.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2. Connection with friends and family, the act of supporting and
encouraging and sharing with each other.
3. Relaxation techniques. Deep pressure and mindfulness and
journaling and exercise.
5. All fresh water activities: Ice skating, swimming, tubing,
6. Mountains-anything to do with mountains. Except goats. (Except
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I should bake. How much money I spend at coffee shops. Brains
and mental health and disabilities.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing from the week by baking and watching t.v., hanging out
with a friend at a coffee shop, or going on a date with a stranger
from the internet.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If you're a man with no shirt or a woman posing cleavage shots I'm
going to give you 1 star and I'm going to enjoy it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to hang out and chit chat, but probably never do more than
that. That seems to be what every okc relationship turns into for
me and I find that to be relatively ideal.
If by some chance we were to engage in something more than a
friendship level, my ideal fella/lady is a somewhat introverted
atheist/atheist agnostic who is very kind, enjoys chit chats,
adores kitties, and is comfortable giving/receiving affection. And
affection is not a euphemism. Harumph.
O yeah, and I always think it is off putting when people have
"don't message me if..." things, but I just found a condition that
is worth including.
Please do not message me if the primary profile photo of yours
includes you wearing google glass. I am just pretty sure it
couldn't work out between us.
