I don't have kik, nor do I send pictures. Nor do I sext/skype/want to arrange sex. Don't ask.
My life is fairly complicated. I feel freer and more intensity than I have in a long time. I am interested in meeting new people and developing connections. I'm pretty wrapped up in existential process, torrid emotional turbulence, childlike wonder and diving into absolute hysterical madness. I feel driven to infatuation with life and those I become interested in; I want to light myself ablaze with love for the interesting and life and things within myself.
Seriously, I am fucked.
I doubt I'm ready for a relationship. Meeting the kind of person I need right now seems an improbable task. I am also not actively seeking it out. Really just want to find people whose company I enjoy, whom also enjoy my company. I'm also not really looking to get involved in open relationships. My last relationship definitely soured me on them.
I am normally pretty spent. I spend a lot of my time doing a lot of things, normally I spread myself too thin and one area or another suffers because of it. My main pursuit in life is poetry, I consider myself a poet first and foremost. Both slam poetry and spoken word (and I would love to talk about the differences of the two with you). I'm pursuing making the St. Louis slam team and just recently took a job coaching poetry slam at high school in Ferguson/Florissant in St. Louis. I am coaching kids who have a shot at making it on the TV show Brave New Voices!
If you aren't an equalist and are homophobic or anti-men or anti-women's reproductive health or think people are bad for having sex with lots of people or for having hair where it grows we probably won't connect very well as friends. I don't believe in gender or race, I think they are constructed concepts cultures created. Though I believe in race in the way that I acknowledge how actively the construct affects everything in this world. Gender is straight up imaginary though, biological sex and presentation are the only things that affect anything. I would drink wine every day if I could. I live with my family and it is complicated. My cats are the pajamas. (snrrk)
I don't know what I want to do with my life overall, but I know I want to help people. I know that I want to push this world closer to equality. I try to be aware of subconscious conformity to any cultural standards and modify my behavior if I deem appropriate. I'm very counter-culture but I wouldn't call myself a non-conformist. There are some things our culture enforces that I am very happy about!
I also laugh, a lot. Humor is really important to me. Gotta be able to joke and be goofy and make bad jokes because that is my default state.
