I'm short for my height but I appear taller when I knock (bonus
points if you know what movie that's from). I make up for my
vertical challenge with extra energy and passion. I love feminism
and queer theory, a good book, and a good friend, whether its a
dog, cat, or other fuzzy animal or person, an awesome song, and
Anything that is generally thought of as "not typical" I have
probably done...I'll do anything risky as long as I have a strong
belay partner! I am an REI product tester so I like to run around
and push the limits.
I have a food dehydrator, everything I need for wilderness
survival, my own garden, and books on foraging. I would like to one
day live totally off the grid!
I am in a committed polyamorous relationship. This means I have a
boyfriend who has a girlfriend. I have found myself in a wonderful
relationship here in CH in addition to my other boyfriend so I am
primarily looking for friends. I'm a great friend!!
I am new to Chapel Hill and so I am looking for new friends, people
to hang out, people to teach me something or challenge me
intellectually, people who want to go and do things...I had to
leave all my people in Charlotte so I could come work in Chapel
Hill, which means lots of Skype dates and searching for new
friends. If you spend a lot of time uploading selfies to various
social media sites we probably won't be friends. Also if you use
too much hair gel or wear those sports ball caps that are still in
perfect condition with the extremely flat brim and the sticker
still on....yeah. We won't be friends.
I have a Masters degree in Public Health and Women's and Gender
Studies. My work is clinical research. I talk about these things a
I am a recreational paramedic (part time, volunteer) and so I tend
to refer to those experiences a lot as well. And I tend to diagnose
people and search for good veins upon immediate meeting. If I ask
you to open your mouth, I'm just checking your mallenpoti.
What I’m doing with my life
Working my big girl job and trying to be an adult (again). Making
my own medicine and researching feminist theory for fun.
Dog-ilates. Canoeing. Generally living moment to moment with no
structured plan. Reading in bars. Challenging normative patriarchal
ideals. You know, the usual!
I’m really good at
Tying knots, inventing recipes (that are edible and delicious),
growing flowers, making those flowers into tea, being outrageous,
cutting my own hair, and generally not giving a fuck :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told its my eyes. But I think it's the tattoos
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love books and music...I actually don't have "TV". I am not huge
into tv or movies but I enjoy cartoon reruns. Family guy,
southpark, futurama, archer...it's like an addiction! I recently
discovered Parks and Rec and if I work in government I am convinced
I will be a red haired version of Leslie Kope. I got hooked on dr
who so now I'm one of the doctor zombies now. I also LOLZ at
The six things I could never do without
The outdoors! (Mainly, trees and bodies of water)
Colorful nail polish
Books books books!
Human sexuality and the ability to ponder it in 25-page seminar
Freedom of speech and the right to assemble (and for that matter,
the right to bear arms)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Queer theory and materialist feminism
Interventions and experiments for public health
Points of ingress and egress in each building I go into
The first thing I would pack if the apocalypse were to occur
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I talk to my dogs like they are people and I am irrationally afraid
You should message me if
You can talk about social issues without telling me that god thinks
I'm going to hell. You like hypothetical questions. You like
hanging out in used book stores or dive bars. You don't remind me
of a scary clown. You think you know the answer to my profile
question. You actually want to have a friendship and not just try
to get in my pants. You're not going to spend all your time with me
buried in your smartphone. You like words. You don't type "u" for
"you" or "there" for "their." You know who John Prine is.
If you are Jason, Richard, or Cassie: I love you!!!!!!!!!!!
