My self-summary
I had too much written here. It went something like:

Bookstores, coffee shops, spicy food. Tattoos, burlesque shows, academic talks. Bluegrass music, country living in the big city, feminist critiques. I live to travel, travel, travel - planes, trains, and the great American road trip.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in international education, which currently means that I work in development at an NGO, running a scholarship program for international students. Love does not adequately describe how I feel about my field.

Still waiting on that opportunity for long-term travel/relocation abroad. It will come, some day.

Update: I bought a fiddle at the World's Largest Garage Sale and am going to try to play it. So you can add that to what I'm doing with my life.
I’m really good at
Empathy, Russian accents, and I do some pretty mean Lana Del Rey karaoke - feminism may bore her, but the grrl's got a killer set of pipes.
The first things people usually notice about me
"Is that your natural hair?"

My eyes are green and orange. Yes, orange.

Although unrelated to appearance, the first reaction people have to meeting me is to sing, "Gloria! G-L-O-R-I-A! Gloria!" The Patti Smith version is preferable to the 1980s mob movie anthem, if you have to sing something, but the original Van Morrison tops them all. I will also accept Michael Franti, when I'm in a good mood. Under no circumstances should "Angels We Have Heard on High" be sung to me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Bell Jar, Harry Potter, Hannah Arendt, Kierkegaard. YA fantasy novels, critical theory, and philosophy.

10 Things I Hate About You is my favorite movie - judge away. Requiem For a Dream, Eternal Sunshine, Trainspotting, SLC Punk. Life is Beautiful, Swing Kids, and Boys Don't Cry. All the feels.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Frasier, Orange is the New Black, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones.

The Avett Brothers, the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, The Fratellis, Old Crow Medicine Show, Concrete Blonde, Ryan Adams. American folk, irish folk, and bluegrass. But really, deeply, and truly - The Avett Brothers

Spicy food - Indian, Mexican, Turkish, Ethiopian, Thai. MmmMmmm.
The six things I could never do without
1. Passport (hilariously enough I lost it just before my trip to Brazil, and had to scramble to get a new one and a visa in just a few days. I really can't do without it.)
2. A good book to read while commuting (I just finished "You Deserve Nothing." Currently reading "Traveling with Pomegranates"
3. Occasional rainy/snowy days, coupled with a nice cup of tea and a good blanket
4. Escaping to my ancestral homeland (the Adirondacks) on the reg.
5. The "what-ifs"
6. Skim milk with ice - seriously. I tried veganism, and this is the only reason I couldn't stick with it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The intersectionality of Maori, Australian Aboriginal, and Native American culture. Where I'm going next and how I'm getting there. Do I really want to go into Manhattan on the weekend for anything? Because I studied philosophy as an undergrad, it seems I'm perpetually bound to think about a lot of abstract and theoretical nonsense; mostly it helps me to find analytical holes in the logic of politicians and bosses. I also find myself constantly torn between my desire to travel the world and experience new cultures and ideas, and my desire to buy a farm house with a porch swing in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina, and sit all day playing my guitar and sipping sweet tea. Those two opposing goals have left me in Brooklyn. Appropriate, I suppose.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually headed out of town on some adventure. If not, you can find me on my porch reading a book or talking with friends, out in the city with friends, seeing live music with friends, biking the boardwalk (friends optional,) or having Netflix marathons with my roommates.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tried to write a snarky, witty, reference-studded profile like all the cool Brooklyn kids, but sincerity spattered with nostalgia seems to be my go-to motif. Shit. Now I'll never be a beatnik.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 22–40
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You're looking for someone to adventure with. As much as I love travel, I like it a lot more when I'm not alone.

I'm a very dedicated feminist, and it's important to me that whoever I date be open minded, and generally accepting. Also, please be body positive. Neither of us will have very much fun on a date if you're a fat-phobe.

Or, if you can teach me how to play the fiddle.
