My self-summary
***Just a heads up that I am super fucking busy. Fer serious. If I don't respond, it's probably because I am crawling around on the ground looking for my marbles. It's nothing personal.***

I believe in the dignity of all human beings. Everyone has something to contribute to this world. I find people fascinating and want to understand what inspires them, what makes them tick. I am currently pursuing a degree in social work because I want to help people create the lives that they want to be living.

I want to find balance in my own life, some equilibrium of health, intimacy, challenges, and adventure. There is a lot of beauty in this world and I want to explore more ways to connect with it.

I am sorting out my relationship to monogamy and polyamory. Suffice it to say, shit's complicated and I'm not sure where I will go with this in the end. Long term, I would like to find someone that I can come home to.
What I’m doing with my life
I moved to Portland from the Bay Area to start a graduate program in social work at PSU (side note, never move to a new place 10 days before school starts. It is ill-advised at best). I currently work in a mental health facility for folks who are diagnosed with schizophrenia and I intern at a homeless outreach program. I'm fairly certain that I have the best internship ever. How many people can say they walked into the drop-in center at their internship and received an impromptu juggling lesson or got to play with kittens?

I have a difficult time imagining myself working in other fields. I think that I would get bored. The thought of working in a cubicle sounds like a death sentence to me. I have more interesting work stories than most of the people know.

Work and school dominate most of my time (once upon a time, there was "free time"...). When I do manage to shirk other duties *cough homework cough*, I enjoy exploring my new-ish surroundings, trying new ciders, biking, cooking, reading, and making fun of Beaverton (because someone's gotta).
I’m really good at
being sassy.
The first things people usually notice about me
Lately, it's been my blue hair. It has elicited an unusually high number of compliments, even on days where I am sure my hair looks like crap.

I frequently talk with my hands. I get louder when talking excitedly. I am quirky and nerdy. I hate small talk and will probably start asking you probing questions sooner than most people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read. I have difficulties with reading one book at a time. It's school time now so mostly I read books about social work and anti-oppressive practice. Paulo Friere recently rocked my world (whereas the new DSM 5 decided has not). Mad in American has been an interesting, but disturbing read, as has Black and Blue.
While I am not reading the series at present, the Dresden Files hold a special place in my heart.

As for movies, I a few of my favorites include A Town Called Panic; Better Off Dead; Good Will Hunting; The Constant Gardener; Amelie; Goodbye, Lenin!; Kung Fu Hustle; Star Wars (the old ones); Despicable Me; Harold and Maude. I cannot deal with horror movies. I was a little disturbed by The Blob, and frankly, that movie should not bother anyone.

I do not watch a lot of TV, but I do have a soft spot in my heart for Top Gear, Black Books, Big Bang Theory, That Mitchell and Webb Look, Totally Biased, and the Daily Show. Also, if you do not like the Muppets, I don't know if I can in good conscience associate with you.

I listen mostly to rock. Inis Mona by Eluveitie will be the music for the epic battle scene in the movie of my life. Don't Let the Bastards Grind You Down by the Toasters is what I listen to when I think it's going to be a rough work day.

In regards to food, I will try just about anything once (please refer to the photo featuring me and chicken pudding) and I enjoy trying new dishes. It is really fun to cook for others. I am truly incapable of cooking for small numbers of people. I tend to eat more veggie and am trying to keep up with the gluten-free thing, but sometimes you just need some fried chicken...
The six things I could never do without
Assuming I have the necessities already and that people do not count as "things"...
Books
Sunshine
Travel
Bakeries
Flowers
Pickup truck and my trusty bicycle
I spend a lot of time thinking about
where my next travel destination will be'; existence; food; mental health /wellness; if my predilection for change and my desire for stability will ever find an equilibrium; am I buying too much chocolate at the co-op; when did my roommate manage to sneak "hookers" onto my grocery list; etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
Beer and friends are my preferred methods of spending an evening. Currently, my Fridays are mostly school work and sleeping.

The Bloggess totally signed my boob (and my book) at her reading and book signing, if that is any indication of what a typical Friday night would look like. (http://thebloggess.com/heres-a-picture-of-wil-wheaton-collating-papers/)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm kind of kinky. It would be cool if you were too (though not required).
I’m looking for
  • Guys and girls who like bi girls
  • Ages 26–34
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
I really want to get to know people who will challenge me intellectually and personally, people who like to look at the world from a variety of angles.

You're hot and nerdy. If you can have a conversation with me that is punctuated with impersonations of Strongbad emails and references to the Muppets, we'll probably get on swimmingly.

Alternatively, if your profile describes you as a "real laid back guy", "I'm getting in touch with my inner Goddess", or you say that you are "just looking to get the most out of life right now and really enjoy the moment", I'll just cut to the chase and tell you to fuck off. Open your eyes. There is so much suffering in the world. Get off your ass and do something worthwhile instead of just revelling in your privilege. Then you can get back to me.

Also, I am not looking for messages that say, "Hey...how r u doin?" You should consider the English language sacrosanct. Additionally, I am soooo not your unicorn.
