I like poems, history, cats, dogs, crafts, companionship, intimacy, caustic humor, sweet affectionate words, self-awareness and consideration, sex, snuggles, soup
I'm smart, witty, and sweet, but also a stubborn and incorrigible wiseass. I excel at metaphor from the profound to the truly disgusting. I show up looking good. I suffer no fools. Generally I seem like an extrovert at first meeting and my introversion becomes clear later.
I have been told my profile doesn't really get across how "feisty" I am and that I seem more boring in profile version than in person. Which I think isn't the worst problem to have.
"When all your desires are distilled you will cast just two votes: to love more, and be happy."
Aiming for a teaching credential because I am essentially incapable of selling anything, or caring about anything to do with "brands" or "products." In fact, I'm deeply suspicious of our cultural obsession with productivity and everyone's chronic anxiety about procrastination. What are we trying to produce? Rather, I want to engage with ideas and concepts.
On a related note I do a decent Liza Minnelli impression.
+I adore the work of Pablo Neruda and Louise Gluck, among many other poets, and that of feminists Angela Davis, bell hooks, and others
I'm trying to read more women authors, but I'm running into a roadblock with female poets. Help!
T.V. staples: Archer, True Detective, 30 Rock, Mad Men, Parky Rec, New Girl, Broad City, Jeopardy, Masters of Sex
Honestly, I love T.V. and am happy to watch a wide variety, although I can't sit through cable news or anything by Shonda Rimes.
Movies: His Girl Friday, It Happened One Night, Singin' in the Rain, My Best Girl (1927)
Music: Erykah Badu, Billie Holiday, Aretha Franklin, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Neil Young, Otis Redding, Adele. Sucker for anything with a kick-ass gospel choir. I also enjoy shitty pop music because I don't have the time or energy to remain aloof and disconnected from popular culture for the sake of remaining cool.
