I hope my profile doesn't give the impression that I'm some hardcore activist who only eats twigs and goes to 3 rallies a week. I'm definitely not that person. I certainly don't want to scare off or intimidate anyone. I'm just trying to practice what I preach. And also, life is too damn short and I want to have fun with my life. I want to go on adventures and try new things.
I'm an avid supporter of gay rights, trans rights, intersectional feminism, disability rights, and the environment. Anti-capitalist. Learning how to practice anti-racism. I often come off as aloof or intense but I'm just really quiet at first. I hope to live in a tiny house someday and homestead as much as possible.
My life right now is filled with much more questions than answers. How do I enjoy this life without forgetting the suffering of others? How do I practice self-love without becoming selfish? What am I willing to sacrifice for the sake of the planet and my neighbors? How do I devote my energy to remaking the world without wearing down? How do I remain educated about current world problems without feeling hopeless or cynical? How do I learn to live with an open heart and embrace change? I'm very interested in meeting people who have already answered these questions for themselves or are currently asking themselves similar questions.
In the next five years I'd like to be a foster mom or adopt a child. In my downtime I garden, swim, read (out of practice lately), write(same), cook, go walking in creeks, go to the movies alone, and visit museums. I dance when no one's watching, enjoy opera, would give my left leg to be a Jedi knight, and wish I lived in Stars Hollow.
I am polite, opinionated, and sarcastic
