My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So let's start off with an introduction. Hi, I am Nicole, Nic, or Nicci; whichever tickles your fancy. **For now, I am in Florida. I hope to be up in Minneapolis sometime over the summer, and I might even visit in the beginning of April. I'm not sure why I took this out, but it needs to be added back in.

I am a pansexual+demisexual-vegan-hippie-dreadhead-gamer with a few issues (which I will disclose at my discretion) and a big heart. I am 420 friendly but I do not partake. I have not found my place in this world yet, but I am seeking it. "He is seeking it, seeking it — all his thought is bent on it." Geek moment! 10 points to Gryffindor if you know the reference. I frequently have movie quotes in mind for certain phrases - well, a lot of phrases and situations, but I try my best to not say them out loud. It's just one of those quirky, awkward things that my friends love about me. Believe me, I am awkward as hell sometimes, but supposedly in an enduring manner, to my friends. I have an odd sense of humor that only people with the same sense of humor seem to get.

I have learned to be my own best friend, and frankly, my life is better for it. I'm not looking for someone to "complete" me; I'd like friends and a partner that compliment me and my lifestyle.

Most days are spent playing with my dog, doing some manner of exercise, talking to my friends in whatever corners of the earth they're in, playing some video game, watching Netflix/Amazon Instant Video/Hulu+, working on a new piece of jewelry, and working on going raw vegan. I'm pretty content with that stuff, and I'm not sure I want to upset the balance I have going on. I might for the right person, though.

I really love making jewelry and I hope to one day have an etsy shop or have my jewelry sold locally - Though, preferably my own shop so I don't have to work for anyone. This is my current goal.

"I have to return some video tapes."

Joss Whedon:
"If you're someone who genuinely believes that women don't deserve or aren't as much as men, you're like the plague. On the big history chart, you're the plague."

"Misogynist. Misogynist – some people might not know where the y goes in that word sometimes. We should reach out to those people. Education. But more importantly, misogynist implies very directly hate and aggressive action against. And most people will think of a misogynist as a sociopath, as an anomaly. Nobody is going to say "I hate them." And quite frankly, many people – most people – don't. As we all know, you don't have to hate someone to destroy them. You just don't have to not get it."

"Genderist. I would like this word to become the new racist. I would like a word that says there was a shameful past before we realized that all people were created equal. And we are past that. And every evolved human being who is intelligent and educated and compassionate and to say I don't believe that is unacceptable." #patheticprehistoricragefilledinbredassclown is apparently "a lot to ask of a hashtag", but I'm going to add it in there anyways. Thank you again, Joss Whedon.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

"Hard is hard...There is no harder there is just hard. We need to stop ranking our hard against everyone else's hard to make us feel better or worse about our closets and just commiserate on the fact that we all have hard." Ash Beckham

"Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this earth as men and women, and the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition. it is life out of balance and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and woman that's confronted with it. We need equality kind of now." Joss Whedon

~Trying to live cruelty free :)
~Working towards raw vegan *raw before 4pm as it is right now. It's a transitional period between vegan and raw vegan, for all of you saying it's an excuse to cheat. No, it's a means to ease in to a healthier lifestyle.

I have a blossoming interest in metaphysics, learning new languages, and cooking. So if someone can point me in the directions of some good beginner books to read on metaphysics, good programs for learning various languages (I've heard the pimsleur approach is good, correct me if I'm wrong), and some awesome vegan or raw vegan cookbooks or sites, I'd really appreciate it!

"When one tugs at a single thing in nature he finds it is attached to the rest of the world." John Muir (paraphrased, not original quote.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Clinging to the skin of this tiny little world.

Imagining hilarious scenarios when someone tells me something bad happened (like a car accident, etc.) then laughing about them which gets me a lot of funny looks, but hey, at least I'm entertained.

Sticking with the people I care about, and apologizing when I am an asshole - It happens sometimes.

Making fart noises by blowing on various parts of my arm/hand. It can be quite hilarious. :p You don't like it? Well, f youuuu. I don't frankly care what you think about me. ;)

Telling people off.

Being incredibly awkward. ;)

Reading through books that I enjoy fairly quickly. For example, I got the last Harry Potter book right at midnight (I was the 2nd person in line for this one hah) when it was released, was home by 12:15am, and finished it at 7am the same morning. Yes, I remember the details. I also almost read through Game of Thrones already. I'm on page 706, and have spent about 8 hours reading it - I have been reading while Skyping with a friend so that makes for slower reading hah.

[added by Elydthia]: And though she doubts herself, i think she is better than most of the individuals on this planet. Consider yourself lucky if you get to know her.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hey there pretty eyes. Would you like a slice of pie?
(probably my unnaturally bright green eyes)

That I have a very flat tone of voice and am not very expressive which leads people to believe I am constantly angry or sad. I also have what is known as Bitchy Resting Face.

Some piece of jewelry I'm wearing that I may or may not have made, but it'll likely be vintage either way. Possibly the amount of piercings in my ears.

My scars. They don't define me, but they are not hard to miss.

a new friend: "I think you are a DELIGHT! I think you are one of the most genuine and real people I have met."

I was told that I generally resemble Eliza Dushku and Emily Deschenal. Strange, I don't really see it, but I am very flattered. I only hope to look as good as them one day. <3

**I do NOT have any next-gen or new consoles.**

Sustenance:
I went vegetarian again back in May of 2013. I love my homemade black bean and rice burgers, smoothies, salads, hummus, eggplant, veg. Indian/chinese/Thai dishes, rice cakes, chocolate, peanut butter...I am raw vegan since just before Christmas 2014. Still learning what I need to eat to sustain myself. Don't worry, I won't jump on your back if you eat the things that I don't, just don't be rude and antagonistic about our dietary differences and we'll be good.

Alcohol gets its own category:
Or it used to! Now I can drink like a mimosa and be done. Most alcohol either nearly instantly gives me a migraine or makes me vomit. I can only assume it's because I went vegan and eat a much cleaner diet.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
∞Friends (Erin, mattypop, and GeneralHoneywine. These people will always mean the world to me no matter where they go in life even if we part ways. Do not mess with them. I'll have your head for it.)
∞cats
∞diary
∞sonic screwdriver
Patrick Stewart, George Takei, Joss Whedon, George Carlin, Ellen Degeneres, etc.
I tend to be fairly content with these things.

In case you don't get the point of my list:

My friends mean everything to me. Everything else is just nice to have.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
SPAAAAAAACE, Timey wimey stuff, bow ties.

Stars (In Spaaaace, not celebs, idiot.)

I often wonder why we can't just live and let live. Why do we have push our religion, diets, and lifestyles on each other? Why do we have to try to deny each other things just because we may or may not like it? (think abortion, gay marriage, etc.)

When would be a good time to steal my mother's Equinox. I freaking love that vehicle! Ugh.

What dishes I really loved when I was eating meat that I can make vegan. I make a delicious black bean burger or portabella rangoons, for the record. ;) (even people that don't like mushrooms like the rangoons, just an fyi.) I make a mean green smoothie, too. <3
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Spoilers

shopping.
playing video games.
or....
playing more games.
watching movies.

Not a heck of a lot that involves being anywhere but in my own space.

Playing with my dog Taryn. She likes to play fetch, run around with me, and spring about like a deer... She's too cute. Seriously, I cannot handle her adorableness.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I do not like tongues at all.

I can't sleep if it's thundering. No, it doesn't scare me, it just disrupts my sleeping or keeps me awake if I'm not already asleep.

11's good bye to Clara coupled with Amy's good bye has got to be the most devastating regen I've ever seen. I've cried for over an hour over this. Seriously heart broken and devastated by Matt Smith's Doctor's time ending. :'(

I wear black flat style crocs (not the huge, ugly original crocs) all the time because I have a messed up foot; everything else kills me to walk or stand in even for short periods of time. Apparently people have an issue with this and I am not sure why.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You honestly know how to be respectful and courteous of someone regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, and so on - I don't mean of just me, I mean of people in general.

If what you're going to put in your message is something you could and actually would say to a woman's face in public without embarrassing her, making her incredibly uncomfortable, causing her to storm off, or potentially getting yourself slapped. Treat this like you're talking to a woman in whatever setting you find her in and she's in front of her friends. If you can't say it to my face and/or in front of my friends, I probably don't want to hear it! Since the boys on this site are clearly daft, I am referring to sexual comments and comments of a similar nature, or in regards to certain other things you might have noticed about me. Don't ask and don't make those comments unless invited to do so; it's just plain rude. If you can't approach me with some common sense and common decency then don't approach me at all! If you can't figure out if asking would make someone uncomfortable or not, it's better to just not ask!

You're not going to say any variation of, "Hey. What's up, beautiful?" I will not respond *nicely* to that. This goes for "Hey what's up" - again any variation of, and "hey", "hi", "hello" will all be met with a less than friendly response. You have been warned.

You read my questions and our answers actually truthfully matched up (I.e. You don't want kids or already have them, don't have rape fantasies, you don't think homosexuality is a sin, don't have a perverse sense of chivalry, don't think I'm obligated to keep my legs shaved, don't think that only men should be head of household, etc.) - essentially don't bother me if you think or feel anything of these things that I could end up construing as you attempting to be controlling of me; not interested in men that can't let a lady live how she wants to.
