What I’m doing with my life
What can I say? I'm a changeable person - a renaissance indigo kid with oodles of potential and a mental/spiritual/emotional itch to delay decisions that could determine my future until I'm absolutely certain of success and fulfillment (i.e. I'm a procrastinating perfectionist that somehow manages to ~usually take care of myself).

I'm currently a substitute teacher for the local school board. I've always enjoyed working with young people, particularly in Education.
I’m really good at
My Interests & Talents:
-Having Google text-to-speech read smutty fanfiction to me while I'm cooking.
-Buying or finding books, and then starting them about 5 times (rough estimate) before I actually completely read through them.
-Thinking up clever responses to annoying things people say.
-Writing something about twice a year.
-Laboring over creating character-specific playlists.
-Adroitly navigating the conversations where you have to call someone out for being racist, transphobic, sexist, homophobic, a shitty capitalist asshole, etc.
-Pretending I live on an uninhabited planet between midnight and four a.m.
-Trivia, and other games that test my recall of absolutely inane snippets of knowledge. I could be the emperor of TriviaCrack if they would only nix the Sports category. (Also, I like to yell at the TV when the Jeopardy contestants I'm rooting for do poorly; I get oddly invested in Jeopardy.)
-Being frank and sincere with others, while still mostly being tactful.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't really know how to answer this question. My best friends thought I looked intimidating the first time they spoke with me. I don't know if I'm consistently intimidating or not though.

The six things I could never do without
1. Conversation
2. Books
3. Compassion
4. A challenge
5. My hope for a better world
6. Solitude
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Right now, I'm really focused on my expanding view of spirituality. Often, I'm thinking about events in the world. When I'm not being serious-minded, I'm probably snickering to myself over some joke I've come up with that I'm not sharing. If I did share it, I probably am mentally high-fiving myself. Or, and this is a big one, I'm thinking about one of my fandoms and/or ships.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm usually reading, meditating, or watching something on Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not sure. I'm usually willing to admit most anything if I know someone well.

Ooh, wait! I might as well get the identity markers out of the way; I identify as agender (pronouns are they/them).
You should message me if
I'm really looking for someone with empathy, intuition, social consciousness, wit, and intellectual curiosity.
