My self-summary
So the other day, I was at the bar with some friends I had just made at the bar. Two of us were new to the neighborhood and discussing it. She suggested I use OKcupid not just to find dates, but to find friends. So I would like to try this for a well. I have scattered friends around the DC Metro area, but I am always down for making friends.

I'm not sure exactly how to do this, though (so if anyone has any tips, I'd be grateful). But I'm going to try some things out and see how it goes.

So, just, if you get a weird, awkward, confused message from me, I apologize, I imagine I'm going to have trouble with the tone of these messages as I hone them. I'm not a creeper! I just want to make some more friends.

More that's actually about me will come soon...
What I’m doing with my life
I am at the tail end of an acute health crisis that has been plaguing me for a while. Taking some time to finish getting that under control, then I have a little more of a semester's worth of college to finish. Studying history with a focus on American history in college, but my passion is for ancient/medieval history. After that, I am law-school bound. I took a year off from school and worked for a plaintiff-side employment discrimination law firm, and I think that's the type of law I want to practice. However, since I haven't even been to law school, I'm trying to keep my mind open.
I’m really good at
Cooking, writing, editing, arguing, listening, getting to know people.
The first things people usually notice about me
It's hard for me to say. Generally, people tend to remark on my friendliness, so let's go with that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Sandman series, anything else by Neil Gaiman, or Terry Pratchett. I love the Valdemar books by Mercedes Lackey. Welcome to the Monkey House, Slaughterhouse-Five, or anything else by Kurt Vonnegut. I love sci-fi/fantasy, satire, historical fiction, history and humor, but I'll pretty much read whatever you put in front of me. I am a book worm.

TV: Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Futurama, Arrow, Mad Men, Arrested Development, Bob's Burgers, Archer

Movies: Star Wars, Princess Bride, Lord of the Rings, French Kiss, While You Were Sleeping, Star Trek (newest one, haven't watched the others yet), Lord of the Rings, Batman (Nolan movies), Catch Me If You Can, Juno, Blade Runner, Love Actually, the list goes on.

Music: the Clash, Raconteurs, Creedance Clearwater Revival, the Beach Boys, the Beatles, U2, Frankie Valli, Journey, Coldplay, Something Corporate, Fugazi, Sex Pistols, Iggy and the Stooges, Guided by Voices, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, Kasilag Guitar Quartet, Amadeus Guitar Duo. Truth be told, I love most music. I like to have music/background noise most of the time, except when I'm trying to sleep. I'll give anything a shot.

Food: I love food. I love to cook and I love to eat. I love the social aspect of cooking/eating. Everything from raw oysters to a bowl of spaghetti. Sushi, drunken noodle, lamb vindaloo, naan, Chinese food, mexican food, plantains, pho, pizza, steak, burgers, sandwiches, roasted vegetables, in-season fruits and vegetables. I'll try pretty much anything once.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:

1. Water (I'm not being sarcastic - I actually really LOVE water).

2. My family. I have a huge, lovely, warm family. They keep me balanced and sane. Thanksgiving and Passover are my favorite times of year.

3. Music. It keeps me focused when I'm working, calms me down when I'm stressed, cheers me up when I'm sad, etc.

4. Some sort of writing implement (pens, computers, pencils, highlighters, whatever, I'll make do). If I go too long without writing, everything gets too pent-up in my head.

5. Cooking. When I'm really stressed or overwhelmed, I usually end up in the kitchen throwing together a meal and looking for friends to come over and eat it.

6. Friends. The friends I have made over the years have so enriched and improved my life, and I do not know what I would do without them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I have ADD, so mostly I am thinking about everything all the time. When I manage to get my brain to slow down, I think a lot about politics, moral relativism, how to relate Aesop's fables to my life and the law school application essays I'm struggling to write. Lately, I've also been spending some time trying to answer the whole "Who am I" question.
On a typical Friday night I am
It varies quite a lot. Sometimes, I go out with my friends (bars, movies, concerts, etc.), or stay in and play Dominion or scrabble with friends and family. Other times, I'm unwinding by myself with a book, a movie or a video game. I love to cook, and often use Fridays to take the time to make a big meal and invite friends over.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Morning Glory is one of my favorite movies of all time. Also, I am transgender (ftm). If you want to know more about that, feel free to check out my blog:
