I'm a purple-haired energetic and overbooked girl living in Portland and dedicating my time to school, work, and the management of enthusiast cons and events with my partner in crime.
I love Portland and creative people, waterfalls and the coast, dark lipstick and dirty chai. Always thinking, always moving, never without a project. Non-monogamous/Poly & Pansexual/Bisexual but focused on my partner right now (who is a man, and older than I) for a lot of reasons: mostly time, and convenience. If you're a girl/femme, you'll have my attention first. Sorry guys.
The rain is my habitat. I am a sunny babybat goth kid.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, drinking coffee, going to school, making music, watching people, participating in city life, reading books, critical thinking, festival and con life, art, more art, and learning.
Always keep stretching yourself for the next milestone.
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm young and bubbly but have my shit together a lot better than most of my peers. I don't get along well with my age group, generally speaking, which means my friends are mostly in their thirties. My hair is bright indigo-blue, and I wear a collar that no, you cannot hook a leash to.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I eat a lot of sushi, thai, teriyaki, indian, mexican, and pub food (but I love to cook anyway!), READ a lot of young-adult-fiction and interesting nonfiction as well as college texts for college, WATCH anything and everything, favorites including Avatar: The Last Airbender, Penny Dreadful, Trigun, Girls und Panzer, Sherlock, anything scary, Marvel movies, Wer, Star Wars, Doctor Who, etc... and LISTEN to podcasts, jazz (yes.) metal, goth music, rock, Bowie, some pop like Adele, Local genre artists (Nathaniel Johnstone Band, Mood Area 52, Good Company, Abney Park). My most-played Pandora station is KMFDM, and the tuner in my car is set to 101.9 FM (KINK).
The six things I could never do without
Coffee, Notebooks, Mobility, Chai, Chocolate, Direction.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My various and ever-changing jobs, all my events, the way people interact, my household, what I need to be focusing on right now, what more I can be, how I'm going to spend the next month and how fascinating life is on the whole.
I enjoy science, psychology, people, food, sustainability concepts, music, science fiction, space, sex, locomotives, steampunk, horror, naturalism, leatherworking, artists that mean it, and really thinking about the world around me while still functionally living in it. I'm not an expert on much; I'm still at a place in my life where I want to spend a lot of time listening and observing.
I don't have time for a ton of gaming even though I like it, I don't watch much (if any) TV - let alone binge watching, I like anime but have finished few, I'm not old enough to get into bars (so no, I can't go get a drink with you) and I don't smoke.
I am pretty atheistic, with naturalist pagan leanings and a short history of episcopalianism. I got my guts to sing and speak in a christian church, but I don't belong there anymore and am not interested in ever going back.
I am a convention addict and vendor. I am familiar with the festival crowd. I have been in a band and onstage. I have been in charge of people. I'm a kinky fucker, but starting the conversation with that will make me think less of you very quickly.
The universe doesn't owe you, or me, fuck-all-anything. I'm trying to learn that and be grateful for the privilege I was born into.
On a typical Friday night I am
When I'm not working, I'm working.
You should message me if
...if you have few expectations, enjoy educated discussions, eat good food, want to share your music or favorite works of fiction, and don't mind that I barely check this thing or generally give two fucks... Or if you're a pretty sane, poly-friendly, kink-friendly, busy-person-friendly young woman that I should get to know.
