Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm just a dorky queer living and working in Northampton!
I used to have other interests listed here, but I have to be real:
these days, what I do is play roller derby! Three to four (to five,
to six) days a week, I am at practice, skating in circles and
hittin' other people with my butt.
I love to cook and eat, although I do more of the latter and less
of the former these days. I also love to read young adult novels! I
used to do it for a living, but these days it's just a relaxing
hobby, which means that I mostly know about books that came out 3
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Mostly, I work two jobs and did I mention I play roller derby? I
also coach roller derby and run the behind the scenes stuff.
There's a lot of roller derby in my life. When I'm not doing that,
I'm probably just vegging on the couch and considering what to cook
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I'm not sure that I could ever narrow down
my favorite books to just a few. My forever books are Mindscape by
Andrea Hairston, His Dark Materials trilogy, the Circle of Magic
books by Tamora Pierce, and I could keep listing forever so let's
stop. My current reads that I've loved have been the second Rick
Riordan dumb-demigods books, which are officially called -- Heroes
of Olympus? And I really liked Holly Black's The Darkest Part of
TV: Avatar: the Last Airbender, Gilmore Girls,
Archer, Bob's Burgers, Gravity Falls, Leverage. Tell me about your
Tina Belcher feelings, and I will tell you about my undying love
Movies: GOOD LORD I LOVE THE FAST AND FURIOUS
MOVIES. If it's a dumb action movie with a shoe-string plot, the
chances are that I love it.
Food: Oh my god, I fucking love food. Truthfully,
I find European food to be boring, but I'm down with pretty much
anything else. (Right now I'm in love with Leela Punyaratabandhu's
cookbook Simple Thai Food, and her cooking blog is even better!)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sunshine (winter is so hard out here, y'all), my tiny dumb cat, my
roommate, skating, spicy chips of any kind, and my phone.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Roller derby. If I'm not playing it, I'm thinking about coaching
it, or watching it, or whatever is happening in the league that I
run. There's just...a lot of derby that I do.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going to bed at like 9:30 to get ready for my early morning shift
as a barista. Weekends are like the middle of my work week!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm actually pretty shy and am probably going to pretend that this
okc account doesn't exist for a week once I get really overwhelmed
by how many cute people exist in the world.

You don't mind that I might disappear from our conversation for
short periods of time! Or if you want to talk off okc. Sometimes I
get really overwhelmed by this website!
Or, you're looking for something super casual, and you don't mind
that I am at derby 90% of the time.
Or, if you have recently read a kick-ass YA novel/amazing
cookbook/watched a dumb action movie that defies the laws of
physics and need to share it with me. Tell me your thoughts on
