Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Social justice minded.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
-Advocating for the youngin's.
-Thinking and rethinking about the 'isms.
-Checking out from the world, which sometimes = beer, couch, t.v.
and sometimes = a walk around the Seward loop followed by a snuggle
with the pooches. Gotta have that down time!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
How about I really like:
Cooking, especially when there's another grown-up to do this with.
Thrift store shopping. Veggie gardening. Farmer's markets. Taco bus
take-out and back-to-back episodes of Orphan Black. Long walks.
Long talks, particularly with wine in hand.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People notice...I'm nice, I'm short, I wear glasses...I dunno...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Reads: I'm more of an article/news snippet reader than a book
reader these days. Mostly I'm found checking out stuff on:
parenting, race/racism, feminist stuff, issues of
gender/transgender issues, body image/health at every size/body
Movies: I'm most into series shows like: Six Feet Under, Sons of
Anarchy, United States of Tara, The Wire, Scandal, Orphan Black,
Transparent, Orange is the New Black, Grace and Frankie.
Music: indie/alt country, 60's/70's rock, strong women in rock,
bluegrass, hip hop. I'm outdated... inspire me!
Food: I like to eat! Feeling guilty about enjoying food is not
something I do anymore. Not interested in social norms around
weight and weight loss. I've got some curves and this is groovy
with me. Life is short. Eat up. Enjoy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-my daughter (stating the obvious)
-my few close, long-time friends
-down time away from the world
-pets (gotta get my snuggles in)
-access to activist thought/information/knowledge/persons
-and I'll be thinkin' on #6...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Kids and gender, kids and race.
-Race, gender, class stuff in general.
-If the head injury a kid sustained on the playground today
warrants a doctor's visit.
-Will I ever be able to buy a house in Seattle? Or even be able to
afford a 2-bedroom apartment?!
-Should I move to Vashon Island and start a mini-farm?
-Can I finally take that trip to Hawaii THIS year?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with the kiddo. Or if I'm free, getting take-out and
watching some Netflix. Or occasionally hittin' the town, though I'm
more of a drink a beer and talk rather than sip a cocktail and yell
over the noise of the crowd sorta gal. But on occasion I might be
found doing the later as well. Guess it depends on what strikes me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I drive my grandma's car. When she passed, my mom inherited it.
When my mom passed, I inherited it. ...Which sounds like it could
be cool, except it's not even vintage or anything...just a beat up,
scratched up, dirty Kia. But I'm good with it ;)
