My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a barista, STEM student, intersectional feminist, bike commuter, socialist, beer asshole, bouldering noob, and nonbelieving Jew.

I grew up in and around Chicago, moved to Vietnam for a year, and came to Seattle in 2011. Seattle is a lot like Hanoi except the mangosteens cost too much here.

Cooking is my favorite thing. Sometimes I bake bread.

I'm a B- photographer and an A+ camera dork. My favorites are my film cameras, all of which have been in this world longer than I have. The one I've used most is a '70s Pentax that only meters for 400 speed film due to a fall it took, with me, off a motorbike.

I believe in ethical non-monogamy and find the concept of relationship anarchy really interesting, even if it's something I'm not sure I could pull off for myself. Either way, at this moment I'm not really looking for anything. I like to keep my profile up anyway, so I can play Quickmatch on the bus like it's a video game.

I love to eat cheese, and I continue to eat cheese.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've begun the slow march toward a second degree! Right now it's just prereq math and science classes in part-time loads, but in four or five years I hope to be working for the forces of good in some field of applied science. The current plan is to pursue a BSCE degree. If you know more about the implications of that than I do, please mansplain to me with no remorse, because I'm sort of going in blind.

I also put in odd hours dispensing uppers, operating highly pressurized machinery, and engaging in a ritualistic process of gamified flirting. Some people call this lifestyle "barista." I prefer not to name it, just as I prefer not to name the crooked, onion-like milk patterns I pour in my lattes.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking. Photography. Falling down Wikipedia rabbit holes. Looking like an idiot on a V3 bouldering problem.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The sun in a clear blue sky.

A sharp chef's knife.

My hot fuchsia TI-84.

A bicycle.

Temporary dorky hobbies.

My friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Saudade, my favorite non-English word.

Cities.

Passenger rail networks.

Dystopian visions of the future.

The banality of evil.

The bone-ality of the human skeleton. (I'm sorry.)

Expensive, weird booze.

Change.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Smashing garlic cloves with the flat of a cleaver. Or maybe dancing, or maybe doing homework. Probably doing homework.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I use a neti pot just about every day. My sinuses are stupid clean.

My celebrity crushes are Holly Hunter circa Broadcast News and Carrie Brownstein circa now.

I have a bidet toilet seat. It's life-changing.

I'm endlessly fascinated by the twisted anthropology of the professional wrestling industry.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a hyperanalytical ball of neuroses who has exquisite taste in men and spends a lot of time thinking about food.
