My self-summary
I am a mess of contradictory things. But that's okay, maybe! I could probably name a lot of them, but that would also mean a lot of sentences starting with "I am. . ." and that's boring. So, let's try to do that, but with varied sentence structure.

Before going to law school, I spent a lot of time just generally being a "Cool Guy (tm)" (not to be confused with a "Nice Guy (tm)!"). What does this mean? Well, if you asked a middle schooler what was a cool thing to be or do, eventually you would get most of the things I was doing. So, obviously, I was a glam-rock singer in New York City for a while, in addition to doing lots of other semi-professional music things. Obviously. I also taught yoga for a bit, in addition to doing some freelance writing, a very small amount of runway modeling, riding a bicycle across the country, and also taught the LSAT for a bit (okay, not so cool). There are definitely other things I did, but somehow, they escape me at the moment. Now I'm in law school and am decidedly not as cool. But I used to be cool, so, yeah.

As to what I'm looking for, I'm honestly rather unsure. I tend to be polyamorous, but I also have a weird philosophical thing where I don't think that there is such a thing as a "normal" monogamous relationship; every relationship involves a degree of negotiation about boundaries, and I tend to set my default a little farther out than most. Of course, this recognition means that—like many other things—this limit is negotiable for me.

I don't know how much belongs on here, especially given that people might find it. But perhaps I should also mention that I tend a little kinky. Maybe a lot kinky. If you need a label, "switch" does pretty well. If this doesn't scare you off, we can talk in more detail elsewhere. And by elsewhere, I really just mean a place where it's not me typing into the void.

Also: sometimes radical, always feminist.
What I’m doing with my life
Law School. It's a thing.

Also, wearing glasses and slowly growing my hair back out (but maybe cutting it again too?).
I’m really good at
Awkward but direct communication.
Being upside-down.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look a surprising amount like Patti Smith.

Or y'know, fill in the blank with some other famous person with a similar hair cut (Jim Morrison, Mick Jagger, Neil Gaiman, etc. all come up pretty often).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How unbearably important everything is, yet how colossally insignificant anything we might call important must be.

If Colin Meloy recorded a version of "I Kissed A Girl" it would actually sound like one of his songs.

Also, bees.
On a typical Friday night I am
Walking in to the shrink, singing a bar of "Alice's Restaurant," and walking out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am incredibly influenced by whatever I am reading at the moment, to the point where I'm pretty sure I change basic life philosophies on occasion.

Either that or that I'm current GMing a series of one-shot Tabletop RPGs using a home-brewed system based on a major anime/manga. I wrote a 30-page player's handbook.
You should message me if
You want to argue about answers to match questions—they seem like pretty good conversation starters, maybe.
You use em and en dashes—or really any form of less common punctuation—correctly.
You recognize that the sentence above is kind of funny coming from someone who adores Joyce.
You have weird hair.
You have well thought out opinions on how to formally address a dominant partner. Or you want to share an unusual title you've used.
You have strong opinions on, well, anything.
You are aware of how awesome bees are.

Also: you found a typo or error in my profile. That shit's embarrassing and I would like to fix it.
