I'm a huge nerd/geek and have given up hiding it. I love video games, board games. RPGs, ren faires, amtgard, SCA, graphic novels and much much more. My husband and I had our reception at the Penny-Arcade Expo and couldn't have picked a more apt place. We host game nights now and then (Munchkin and Arkham Horror are always good) and are always looking for more gaming friends.
I'm also an environmentalist and have been called a damn hippie and a tree hugger. I am, and I'm proud of it. I care deeply for the environment and strive to give a voice to the things around us that can't speak for themselves. I'm very into the voluntary simplicityand urban homesteading movements but am in no way old fashioned or traditional. However, this means that if you're looking for a partner for retail therapy I'm not your girl.
My other hobbies (which get WAY less time) include photography, biking, rock climbing and parkour. I enjoy reading, and go through fits and spurts of intensive sewing and knitting. I have a ton of other things that I'm interested in (poi, knife throwing, learning more and more new skills) that tend to get pushed off to the side in favor of relaxation.
I can be feminine but am so very not girly. However, I get along just fine with women who are (especially those who are willing to tell me that my clothes look terrible and will show me how to dress). I am a tom boy, plain and simple, and don't see that ever changing. I am also not one of those women who doesn't like other girls. Though most of my friends tend to be guys, I deeply value my tribe of women and can't imagine my life without them. I write for a blog, Pretty Gamer, that is by geeky women, for geeky women. I am a feminist and I'm proud of it.
I am Irreverent, passionate, and competitive
