Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm...goofy, intelligent, crass, outgoing, capable of being
introverted and extroverted depending on the moment,
self-critical...but I generally feel I can handle my own. I
endlessly wish I had more time to read, to hike, to bike, to
explore, but I try to do the best with what I've got.
Recently I've been exploring my relationship to gender, as a
cis-female who feels comfortable in her body but is totally stoked
by the myriad of ways to exist beyond the gender binary. I'm
exploring my identification of myself as queer
(not just in my sexual tastes but
the values I want to live my life by) and strive to further
challenge myself to be an anti-racist advocate and feminist
,and have a
committed life partnership with someone who is not in Buffalo. I'm
looking for relationships that are fairly casual but based on

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working in the cultural heritage field and loving it. I refuse
to accept that I am a workaholic, but I have a ton of shit going on
right now. That being said, I love having fun and exploring so many
dimensions of Buffalo and beyond, and I like meeting new friends to

This is the hardest section for me to fill out...[disclaimer: this
is in no way a complete list]
Books: Just finished The Book Thief and bawled my effing eyes out.
If On A Winter's Night a Traveler, East of Eden, Midnight's
Children, Sex at Dawn, anything by Jonathan Letham,
McSweeney's...etc! etc! etc! Just read The Sisters Brothers and
loved it. I tend to get very engrossed in whatever I'm reading, and
emerge dazed and confused at the end.
Movies: I'll admit, I know there are many good movies I should
watch but haven't yet. I love Wayne's World, PCU, and Empire
Records (what 90's girl doesn't?). Saturday mornings are the best
when Jurassic Park is on. Alternatively, if you've seen F is for
Fake and enjoyed it, message me.
Music: folky punky with an undercurrent of ska... in no particular
order: the Pixies, the Breeders, Belle and Sebastian, the Beatles,
the Cave Singers, Tallest Man on Earth, the Specials, A.C. Newman,
Paul Simon, Led Zepplin, Neil Young...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Once food, water, air, shelter and general comfort are taken care
of: reasons to laugh, meaningful relationships with others,
creativity and creative people, kindness, love and intimacy, the
natural world, chocolate and coffee. I know that's seven, but life
devoid of any of those thing would suck.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Art, history, societal structures, archives (haha), the lives of
others, pop science, all the terrible things we're doing to the
earth and others on it, all the wonderful things we're doing with
the earth and others on it, sex.
