My self-summary
I am curious (tell me things. I want to know everything, some of the time.) I'm often impatient (and always contradictory, sometimes) and I like bright colors.

I read a lot. Sometimes I read serious brain-pounding literature and sometimes I read fantasy (Fantasy can make me think too. Terry Pratchett usually is mostly fun to read. Sometimes I get distracted and wander off into tangents about books. Often, actually.)

I like chocolate a lot. Dark chocolate especially and always.

Sometimes I think too long or too much and get lost in tangled dreamy webs of thought that trail off into dusty corners, and meander into fanciful twists and turns of words. Usually, then, I shake my head and remember what I'm doing (and there's little so romantic about writing an online profile, odd as that is.)

(I wrote that paragraph ages ago. I still do that though, I sometimes get very purple with my prose in the middle of doing something prosaic. I am, in fact, fully aware of how silly I am.)

My brain works in a way that has to do with words and pictures. I like languages and stories and paintings. Beautiful things made of letters or brushstrokes or sentences or pen lines messily cross-hatched into a shadow. I also am somewhat pedantic and I like people. I think everyone's generally okay (at least) and I think intentions are important.

If you ask me for book recommendations, be prepared for a list. I'm nearly always carrying a book around, and also usually some chocolate.

I really like the word "sardoodledom" but also "terpsichorean" and "barnacle."
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I go to school in New York. After that, I think I'll probably go to more school and then teach. If that falls through, I'll draw comic books for a living (because it's always good to have a backup.) I sort of want to do a saving-the-world sort of thing and start a nonprofit program for kids in the city but that's enormously impractical so I don't really know. I will probably try anyway.
I’m really good at
Navigating the NYC subway (I wrote this when it was new to me and I was proud of it). Reading. Making astute, not necessarily relevant observations about people. I'm a decent artist. Planning things (though at this, I'm often better in theory than practice. Everything's easier on paper. I can draw out very detailed itineraries for days in the city, and figure out which subway stops I want, and then wander around getting lost for the afternoon instead.) Making bad puns.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure. I suppose you would have to ask them. There are certainly things I'd like people to notice about me-- my incandescent beauty, impeccable taste, whatever, but of course I don't know what they actually see.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Left Hand of Darkness. Beloved. Every Batman comic I've read so far, probably the ones I haven't too. Brave New World. Madame Bovary. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (and the rest of the trilogy.) Everything Neil Gaiman has ever written (American Gods especially.) Everything Terry Pratchett has ever written (Thief of Time especially.) Nineteen Eighty-four. The Mists of Avalon. Jane Austen (all six, and then some.) Lots more, but I forget. Erm, The Lost Years of Merlin (one of my favorites as a smaller person. Worth reading.) Fahrenheit 451. The Handmaid's Tale. The Once and Future King. Daytripper. Love in the Time of Cholera. Slaughterhouse Five. A Room With A View, also Howards End (currently reading.)

Movies: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Amélie. Anything with Will Smith in it. Die Hard. The Princess Bride (is my favorite. Ever.) Casablanca. Recently, The Maltese Falcon and The Big Sleep. Again, more, but I get impatient of listing.

Firefly. Chuck, Jon Stewart, Colbert, Psych, Bones. Buffy.

Music: Counting Crows, the Beatles, the Decemberists, Regina Spektor, Jason Mraz, Led Zeppelin, Jay Brannan, Pearl Jam, The Who, the Rolling Stones, tons more.

Food: I like to cook/bake. I'm a vegetarian. I hate tomatoes. I love chocolate and pasta and ice cream and especially chocolate. Tea. Gingersnaps. Snickerdoodles. Cake. Mac and cheese. Things that are roasted with onions. Bell peppers. Things that involve some combination of spinach/feta/lemon/nuts. Chocolate.
The six things I could never do without
Good food. Books. My best friends, always, and family (some of it, sometimes.) Excedrin for headaches. Sketchbook and pen or pencil or possibly paintbrush (say that five times fast.) Depending on how you count, that could add up to six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things like the shadows that collect underneath cheekbones and the twisting curves of a figure (being an artist has infected my life, and I get distracted by wanting to draw too often. The lines of an actor's face as he turns, and I'm itching for a pen instead of just sitting and watching TV. Sometimes I lose track of what people are saying because of the shifting shade on their faces.)

Also stories, the stories I love best (history, fantasy, anything) and the stories that collect in my head, of haunted closets and changelings and silly things like that.

People. The way they work and think and act and why. I think a lot of kinds of study are caught up in this and just call themselves other things.

Wondering about how other species experience time. Or about Achilles and immortality. Maybe debating the morality of Batman. Possibly contemplating the blue of the sky. It's my favorite.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, probably. Conflicted over my Amazon cart full of comic books (it's kind of a problem. I'm very Batman-obsessed right now.) Avoiding homework. Drawing. Painting. Reading (more).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I feel super awkward posting an OkCupid profile. Not sure I want to be someone who does, but I suppose it's too late now.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like girls
  • Ages 20–25
  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if
You like to read, definitely. If you like stories, or the Beatles. If you have something, anything interesting and original to say.

If, and only if, you have more to say than "hiiii." Or even "hello." That's not interesting. Don't only tell me I'm pretty (especially if you misspell it.) Give me a reason to answer beyond "thank you," which I don't bother with much. Ask me something more than "hey how are you," especially if you don't punctuate. If I don't know you, I don't feel like you need to know what is up.

If you're patient, because I forget about things like messages (and I'm increasingly lazy/indifferent on this site, so if I don't answer you it's most likely because I forgot to log on for a couple days. Erm, weeks. Months?). It's not you. It's me. Probably.

If you might want to know me. If you think I might want to know you.
