I am a female-to-male transgender. If that turns you off, that's fine, to each their own, but don't message me if it's not something you can deal with, please. I am being up-front with you because I don't want to get my feelings hurt in any way over this technicality.
Also, I do have a girlfriend whom I hope to marry one day. We are currently monogamous. The sole reason I am updating this profile is because all of the good friends I made in college have moved away. I need new friends who are local!
I graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Criminal Justice, with Honors, with an additional major in psychology, and with the Honors College. In other words I'm an over-achiever. That's the most you'll ever here me brag about myself. Ever.
I am currently a Front End Clerk at a local grocery store, with the promise that I will soon be a fulltime ACSM (basically an accounting manager). I am so stoked for this because I really enjoy the work and this will be the first time in a long time that I have health insurance.
I have an almost unhealthy love for Netflix of which I am mildly ashamed. I like pretty much every genre, including horror movies, but I am by no means a movie buff. There are a lot of movies I haven't seen yet and I never know who acted in what or who directed what.
Every once in awhile I get really invested in a video game but honestly that hasn't happened in a couple years. RPGs have always been my thing when this occurs.
I enjoy reading too. If reading were my religion, Stephen King and Dean Koontz would be my Gods.
I used to be horrible about following the major happenings around the world but have gotten slightly better since my job (before my recent promotion) was a fuel clerk position which gave me time and access to several different newspapers.
I love music but am bad at remembering the people behind it- musicians, composers, etc. I listen primarily to punk and heavy metal type stuff. My favorite bands will forever be AFI and My Chemical Romance (although MCR's most recent album was a huge disappointment to me).
I am not athletic at all; however, I enjoy being active. I love jogging, taking long walks, swimming, and hiking. I also love to long board but am not the most graceful at it. I used to play softball back when life was simpler and I was a lesbian but was no good at it. Update: my life has become quite sedentary. Due to a rainy summer and working two jobs my knees and ankles became worryingly painful so I stopped jogging and have yet to develop a new routine. Hopefully my promotion will give me the time and set schedule necessary to build a routine. I would really love to start swimming again to prevent further stress injuries to my joints. I seriously feel like my body has aged several years in the past six months.
I am generally a very neat person but there were always certain spots in my former apartments that succumbed to meaningless haphazard piles of I don't even know what anymore. If you are not a neat person I totally respect that because I admit at times I'm not either; however, just because I can handle messy does in no way mean that I will tolerate dirty. Bleach is my best friend. I enjoy vacuuming more than is healthy.
I enjoy talking to people- not mindless chatting but having actual deep conversations where you learn about the other person.
I drink several nights a week but more for that feel-good buzz and the nice fluffy feeling in my head before bed than to get seriously drunk. I like wine and beer although am fairly picky about the latter.
As far as smoking goes...I don't smoke that much, usually one cigarette at the end of each day. Sadly I can no longer call myself a social smoker though. I admit I have a habit but I monitor it VERY closely.
Winter is actually my favorite season because I love holiday lights and the cold crisp weather is so invigorating. Snowfall at night makes the world seem like a serene place for a moment.
I am a rather devoted person when it comes to my family and friends. I enjoy taking care of people and am a naturally protective person. This annoys some people and flatters others.
I enjoy cooking but am in no way a culinary genius. I just like cooking for myself versus take-out. I am also not a health-nut, fair warning. If you're a health nut I find that impressive and I respect that but it's not going to stop me from eating the same foods I've always eaten: eggs, pasta, burgers, and pizza are some of main staples.
I am not a very snazzy dresser: I wear skinny jeans, a v-neck tee, hoodie, and skate shoes every day. Sometimes you might wonder if I've changed my clothes in several days although I assure you I do shower and change clothes everyday. I just tend to find something that fits well (which is difficult) and then buy several of whatever it is. I also wear thick geeky glasses. Are you turned off yet? I'm honestly impressed you made it this far.
Wow I actually ran out of things to say. Actually that just made me feel like I was on a date and talking waaaaaaay too much about myself. I would rather hear people's stories than tell my own.
