It's pronounced Mah - Eh - Liss.
I'm interested in making new friends. I'm accepting applications for coffee shop reading partners. I'm a fan of baking dates where we team up to make desserts or comfort food. I'm pretty low on energy usually, and I like lots of solitary time - which might be occupied by watching campy action flicks, walking around town, checking out bakeries.
My gender expression is mostly soft butch with occasional days where I femme-up. I get sir'd a lot.
These days I spend a lot of time unlearning things about how I treat myself and others, and acquiring life skills on how to go about that in a way that's healthier.
I love travelling. I've been really lucky in that I've been able to work in Argentina, South Africa, and travel to England, Cuba, France, Italy and throughout both the US and Canada. I've had some special moments and am grateful for them. I want to make more of them happen.
I make an effort to appreciate the magic in the every day: that soothing cup of coffee, watching city lights mingle with the rain, eating breakfast at a diner before sunrise, etc.
