In August I moved to Portland from Austin, TX. It's the first time I've lived outside of my home state.
I NOW HAVE A TRUMPET AND AM SO AMAZINGLY STOKED TO LEARN TO PLAY!! =D So far though it sounds like I'm murdering ducks. And just got a ukulele today for my birthday! Imma learn all the instruments!
Things I'm working on right now: job hunting, volunteering for Soak and Honk West, learning ukulele, trumpet, and guitar, putting together my first burlesque routines, getting in shape and losing weight (exceptionally difficult for me though because of thyroid), large mural for one of my Soak camp's bar.
Yeah I'm a geek. My life is full of lots of geeky loves and interests. Doctor Who, anything Joss Whedon, costuming, skeeball, etc.
I love fantasy novels. More into modern day than high fantasy. I don't play RPGs but quite a lot of my friends do. I'm addicted to webcomics.
Most of my social life is tied up in Burning Man and Flipside. I do a lot of camping (glamping) and art. I prefer house parties to bars.
Oh, and I, um, rather hate organized team sports. Mostly into alternative sports like snowboarding, slosh ball, Calvin ball, and flaming soccer.
Ok so I don't watch network tv, but I am still addicted to watching shows I like on my computer. Help me break this addiction! I can't stand sitcoms though.
I have hypothyroidism which causes me a wide range of health problems. However, I am not in any way dainty.
I think a lot about my health and the role of food. I was a vegetarian for years (but not I'm back to enjoying meat). I am an aspiring raw foodist, but that's a difficult lifestyle to pursue without plenty of money for fresh healthy food. I'm badly addicted to sushi.
I am an energy chameleon so I do well around energetic happy people. I love acting silly and goofy just to make other people smile. Music and dance therapy are great for the soul. If I'm driving down the road and see someone dancing away in their car it makes me happy. I do it plenty myself.
I love to flirt. But more often than not I don't want it to lead anywhere. I enjoy having friends I can safely flirt with
I love to dance but it's hard to find music that really moves me to it. When I do find it I just can't stop. I don't really dance that often. When I go out I'm much more into running around being social than into the event itself.
Instruments I want to learn but have yet to: guitar, banjo, violin/fiddle, mandolin, ukulele, trumpet and possibly accordion and piano.
I get far too many messages from couples hunting for their unicorn. I am not the unicorn you are looking for. I changed my status to straight, but I would consider myself more heteroflexible. I am not often attracted to girls enough to pursue anything but it sometimes happens.
I very strongly value honesty. No really very strongly. I would much prefer being hurt by the truth than by deceit.
