My self-summary
I'm interested in meeting fellow geeks/fans/fiber folk/etc. for hanging out! I recently moved to Gainesville so don't really know anyone yet.

I used to sing in two different choirs in Ohio, a small choir that sings interesting music and a unitarian church choir. Here, I'm singing in the civic chorale and in the Unitarian fellowship choir. I work doing research in child language development. I go to 2 or 3 science fiction cons a year, and help run my favorite one, WisCon, which focuses on feminism and gender in science fiction. I knit, a lot.

I am intense, laid back, and geeky
What I’m doing with my life
slacking much more than I should. Trying to be mindful of balance and happiness.
I’m really good at
Crafty things. Cooking indian food. Cooking in general.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm somewhere on the ace spectrum right now, probably demi.
You should message me if
We're at least fairly compatible on % friend, and not too high on % enemy. I prefer longer form communication over single sentences.
