My self-summary
For the sake of transparency here, I think I ought to immediately mention that I have been a compulsive skin picker for many years. I focus on my face and scalp; I do have some scarring of these areas as a result of that. Admittedly, I've experienced very long stretches of singledom in my life because of the shame I have regarding this behavior (i'm fearful of the point of a relationship when the make-up must come OFF). But I'm throwing up my hands and embracing the possible rejection that will come on account of this. Indeed, I believe there are plenty of lovable qualities about me to compensate for this unattractive trait; I'm not a complete Quasimodo, ha. Just 3/4's maybe. Enough about that.

I'm a simple girl. My trifecta of enjoyment is reading, cooking and taking long walks -the last two usually spent listening to mind-enriching podcasts.

My Myers Briggs result? Oh, right. I'm a ZXWV- but sometimes I can masquerade as a MRQB if the moon is in the right phase and I've just licked the bark of a pregnant oak tree. Hate to break your narcissistic, "OMG-that's-so-ME!?" heart, babycakes, but those tests are neat little piles of pseudoscience crap.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a full-time student working toward becoming an Earth Science teacher. I've chosen to return to school to pursue this profession because it will provide me with an ample chunk of time each year for travel. (Plus, SciEnCe RuLez!)

Lately, my energies have been directed at homework assignments, but I sometimes paint/draw/sculpt/collage: http://pigmentallyill.deviantart.com/gallery/

No vainglorious, online displays for me, thanks.

Food: the kind that you eat.
The six things I could never do without
Sources of new, educational information (e.g. podcasts, books, documentaries, museums, etc.) /sources of laughter, tea, wholesome food, nature walks and sleep.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the usual: whether the cosmoshitstuff vibrating inside the infinite loopisms form a glimmering doorway to the quarty-vith dimension, and if the song of the lunar moth is the same frequency as that of our white star mother.
On a typical Friday night I am
...doing something fantastically boring in my (super affordable) Bronx apartment. Becoming a student again has meant that I don't have a lot of disposable income, so I try to keep all my nights pretty simple.
You should message me if
I'm getting discouraged by the amount of couples who are messaging me on here vs. single people that I would be interested in. You two might be completely loverly human beings, but I do not wish to be a part of a poly relationship set up. Maybe I'm conservative and uptight and clinging unfashionably to tradition and all that, but monogamy is just what works best for me. So please only message me if you are also solely seeking a monogamous relationship.
