My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've lived in Seattle for over a year now (since 4/5/12) and I've never loved any place more. I'm still probably going to move around quite a bit (yeah, you, San Francisco) before I decide where "home" is.

I'm listed as gay, but I identify as homoflexible, for lack of a better word. I'm polyamorous and in a committed relationship with a wonderful guy, beerandbonsai. My attraction to men is generally contingent upon strong emotional connections; he and I have a lot of history, and he's very supportive and understanding of my sexual identity, which sometimes makes me physically unavailable to him. We're interested in a third joining us to help round out an already-amazing life together, but it's not my only reason for being on here -- new friends are great!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Learning as much as I can, and trying not to stress too much about what I'm not ready to know yet. (What you should take from this is that I have no fucking clue what my eventual career will be and that I, at 23, feel like that's a pretty okay place to be.)

I'm particularly interested in astronomy and linguistics. I'd love to get into AI research, and have recently started looking into ways to use my talents for language acquisition to help others.

I'm dying to know things that no one has the answers to yet, and it's probably what keeps me up at night more than anything else -- knowing that there is a "why," but being completely unable to capture it. (For instance: why and how did we develop the capacity for language that we have, while chimps and bonobos did not? Why does our psychology lend itself so well to innovation and technological development, and also to the slavery of religion in the face of overwhelming contradictory evidence?) Also, since I was very young, I've had a fascination with epidemiology, virology, and immunology that some have called morbid, but I have no desire (read: money) to go to medical school so fuck it.

As far as recreation... Powerlifting (!= bodybuilding, for the record) and rock climbing (bouldering > top-roping) are favorites. I also love longboarding, roller skating, volleyball, and baseball.

Last year I went to my first Sounders game, the playoff match against the Galaxy, and I fell absolutely in love. I attend every home game (and go fucking mental in GA) with my good friend, LaMazzer. We haven't missed one yet; I plan to keep it this way.

I'm also a musician, though far less dedicated than I once was. I sing and I play a few instruments -- mostly uke and guitar.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Parenthetical asides, apparently.

Picking up heavy objects with relatively evenly distributed weight.

Learning languages.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair, probably; it's generally not "normal" -- it's green, or it's orange, or I have a mohawk, etc. Possibly my clothes, if I'm working out. I tend to wear bright colors to lift.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The user name probably gives it away, but I'm really into Carl Sagan, so pretty much assume that for all of these categories, Sagan stuff is a given. (Cosmos [both book and series], Pale Blue Dot, etc.)

I read mostly non-fiction, though lately I'm really interested in reading more of the sci-fi classics, particularly Asimov. I like books related to astronomy, linguistics/language learning, medicine/health, cognitive science, and anthropology/sociology.

I like watching old martial arts films, and I love most comedies. Sometimes I'm willing (and on rare occasions, enthusiastic) to watch sappy movies, but it's not my preference. I also like a lot of fantasy and sci-fi -- you're way more likely to get me to watch fiction than to read it. That said, I also really dig documentaries and educational films.

Favorite shows are Breaking Bad, GoT, Big Bang Theory, Parks & Rec, Community, Good Eats, Star Trek TNG, BSG, pre-WTF ATHF, and any show whose sole purpose is to air an hour of adorable baby animals. (Seriously, watch Animal Planet on Saturday night. Or don't, because you have a life. Either way, they're there.)

Music is a doozy. My tastes are eclectic and unpredictable, or completely predictable, depending on who you ask. Sleigh Bells, Robyn, Queen, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Cake, Notorious B.I.G., Azealia Banks, Madonna and (lol) Macklemore are all in heavy rotation right now (aka always), but I'm always on the hunt and I'm generally open minded. Also yes, Symphony of Science. Stop asking. :)

In my mouth I want whiskey, avocados, mushrooms (magical and muggle), a good hefeweizen, burgers, Thai food, spicy things, Indian food, chocolate, artisan breads, seafood, the almighty Sriracha, basically sour gummy anything, and Carl Sagan.

But not all at the same time. Ew.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
We all get that this question really means "six things I'd be unpleasant to be around if I were made to give them up," yes?

▸ My best friend
▸ Music
▸ Lifty
▸ Trees
▸ Longboard
▸ Internets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why so many of the self-identified bisexual girls on OKC fill their profiles with "I'm looking for a guy who..."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

My gap feels weird. :I

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're an intelligent, laid back, 420-friendly lady/girl/femme/whathaveyou in need of company, romantic or otherwise.

You should not message me if you congratulate yourself for being a "gold star" lesbian (as if inexperience makes you superior), refuse to date girls on the bi-spectrum, or think it's okay to slam people, especially men, for being cisgendered, heterosexual, or otherwise non-queer. Discrimination is always wrong, monosexism is a real (and hurtful) thing, and it's the principles of heteronormativity and the people who promote them you should take issue with. Just like we didn't choose to be queer, they didn't choose not to be. Check yourself.
