My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm queer, like the pansexual kind

My dad is an atheist marxist who makes bad puns, writes his own acrostic puzzles, and did union organizing as a typesetter back in the day; my mom is a former dyke who works as a nurse practitioner doing geriatric low-income home-based health care in NE D.C.: I'm working on being as rad as my parents.

Here are some ways my fashion has been described recently (which I like): a Ladies Auxiliary union maid; a lost boy goes to college, Bettie Page (hair fashion). I would like to dress/have swag like Robyn; Ashley Spinelli; Rizzo; Denise Huxtable; Spot Collins.

One time a drunk friend described there being--in addition to the metaphorically typical two sides of the coin--a third side which combined both of the other two, and usually that is the side I'm on.

I'm a bit embarrassed by how long this is, but a concisely representative self-summary is hard, it turns out.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Schoolin': everyone alla the time (j kidding). truly: nursing masters (figuring out how to do health care as organizing and vice versa)

Folk, blues, soul, hip hop, canto popular, new weird america, ladies who don't always try to make their voices sound pretty, people who speak truth to power and feelings, radio top forties, all those podcasts we all listen to (radiolab, tal, comedy bang bang), democracy now!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Verbal and written processing
Tastes and textures of food, and being able to eat with my fingers
Listening to, moving to, and making music
Connection, contact, community
Not choosing only six things
Feeling thankful and lucky
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Light, colors, and visual and tactile textures. Faces. Feelings. Backstory. What are the right fucks to give? Equanimity. How to be grounded and open. How I'm walking and if its muscularly symmetrical; posture; yoga shit. Biological processes in my body, and in other things. Anatomy and physiology terms (like the sella turcica of the sphenoid bone--you can't make that shit up). Life as a science experiment. Intentionality and awareness. Resources and generosity. Trust of emotional intuition. Anxiety. Seeing-as (metaphors, frames). Venn diagrams. Categorization. In/justice and intersectionality. Responsibility and ownership. Praxis (3rd time). Habits. Reminders. Time signatures.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
oh you know
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I wish I were good at lying, but I am not. (but then I guess, how would you know, amirite.)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have something interesting to say; you care enough about shit to be real.

You're pretty queer, regardless of who you do.

You're down with non-monogamy.
