My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
7 Rs...

Sorry to all you people who write TL;DR. Cause, yeah, it is! But you'd better.

I'm Emma, a native St. Louisan, biracial Japanese-American (the other bits are primarily Irish and Anglo-Saxon, with some Alsatian tossed in the mix), out bisexual (albeit gay by love), and culturally spiritual (while also being Athiest/Agnostic belief-wise -- they're not mutually exclusive).

I'm happily and monogamously married to my soul mate, Aileen. I suppose it goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway, FRIENDS ONLY.

I come from a family comprised mostly of architects, artists and graphic designers, so art was sort of in the cards for me (in some manifestation) from birth. In my case, I'm a poetry and fiction writer (and occasional artist's model), and a devotee of visual arts and creative writing. (The rest of my family are primarily lawyers, if you wondered.)

Above all, I'm interested in anthropology and folklore. I consider myself a world citizen (who isn't, ultimately?) and circumnavigated the globe with a program called Semester at Sea (Take that, bucket list!)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In Fall 2010, I started the M.A. program in Folklore at Indiana University - Bloomington. I also write poetry and fiction. I'm a perpetual activist, volunteering with various organizations (big issues: environment, GLBT rights, liberal politics, reproductive choice).

I have effectively dropped out of IUB and am working at Gustine Market in TGS. I'm a casual online gamer and an extremely social animal. I love my neighborhood and hang with friends in the area often.

I'm also very devoted to my partner and strictly monogamous.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Poetry. Academics. I was a track champion in high school, in 400m hurdles.
Can't play an instrument well, unfortunately (though I did play
trumpet in the middle school band). I'm an excellent lover, of
I'm also pretty knowledgeable about wine... it's one of those things that sort of just happened, especially working at a store that hosts regular wine tastings. :) And craft beer love runs in the family, so fancy beer fandom is absolutely something I'm excellent at! Planning to brew a little in the future, too.

I can even sing my gorgeous rhymes with an impressive vocal range!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't read the minds of other people (although I am quite curious), so I'm going to replace the header with "My most striking features are".

1) I have a unique face. I don't look particularly Japanese, but there's something about my features that can't be easily placed into one race or another.
2) My eyes. Amber, slightly almond-shaped. I try to be a bit sultry with them.
3) My skin. A lot of people comment on this -- so I suppose they must notice it specifically.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My cat, my girl, my brain, my beauty, literacy, my sense of self.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
There's a novel! You should message me if you're interested in the answer to this one.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Home with my girl. Dinner out. A concert or show of some sort. Checking out drinks at a new dive. Gallery opening. Howling at the moon (just kidding -- that's plausible, but atypical). Living in a city, there are generally a lot of options!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I watch Reign. I can be so exuberant as to be terrifically annoying. I would go into debt to prove my love to a woman. Which is a rather tragic thing to admit!
You should message me if
