My self-summary
I am a series of contradictions and confusions. I am a white knight in tattered armor. At times I am human and a hypocrite but I compensate with my lust for living. Pushed in a box for years has had its toll but I am slowly breaking free; slowly, oh so slowly, I am becoming me. This journey is long and complex there are times when I don't know where I will go next. You are welcome to join me if you have the time, the patience, the passion.

I am a shy one but I hope that you'll find my awkwardness to be a part of my undeniable charm ;P

My sexuality and ideas of gender are fluid and I typically identify as Queer. I've been described this way once and I kinda love it:
"You look like a lesbian but you're queer as fuck." I'm also Pansexual. So yeah, I'm open to talk about sexual orientation, gender identity and presentation, gender politics, LGTBQ rights/issues. I love it all so feel free.
What I’m doing with my life
I recently completed the requirements for my BA in Secondary English Education at Columbia College as well as their Divergent Learning Master's Degree Program. I am very excited.
I teach in a South Carolina public school in a critical needs area and subject. I plan to be here for 4-5 years to pay off my teacher's loans.
After that...I'm not sure where I will go. I don't know yet but I do know that I want to use my life to make South Carolina public schools a safer more comfortable place for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer students and their Allies.
I’m really good at
I am really good at procrastinating and yet accomplishing my goals in time anyway.
^ This was super true in college but I feel like I much prefer to be prepared ahead of time. I'm still good under pressure, I just don't prefer it anymore.
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess in regards to physical features that stick out...I have blue eyes, they tend to get a fair amount of attention.
