My self-summary
Want to hear a joke about pizza? Never mind, it was too cheesy.

Disclosure: I am in a loving, open, non-monogamous, full-disclosure relationship. We engage with others independently.

With that said, I know lots of pandas. I have a master's degree in social work. My early years were spent growing up in New Hampshire and I have spent several years in different neighborhoods of Boston for college, grad school, and the present. I smile easily. I have a very odd sense of humor. INTJ with a hint of INTP.
What I’m doing with my life
A peanut walked down the street. It was assaulted.

Working as a child-focused crisis clinician conducting urgent psychiatric evaluations. Hanging out. Trying to find the fine line of work/life balance. Sometimes dabbling in creative outlets. Share your active hobbies with me!
I’m really good at
A horse walks into a bar and the bartender asks, "Why the long face?"

Working with children (particularly the very little ones), dancing like a maniac, playing Dr. Mario, eating cheese, unabashedly belting out to songs in the car, winning board games, scrutinizing craft beers, writing lists, sudoku, cooking/baking from scratch or otherwise, snuggling, being Finnish-esque, overanalyzing everything, handwriting and calligraphy, figuring out 20% of a bill at a restaurant in 0.5 seconds, and parallel parking. Oh, and engaging in scandalous activities.
The first things people usually notice about me
Do you wash your pants in Windex? Because I can see myself in them.

Usually my red-ish hair. Then my smile, my glasses, my dimples, my straightforwardness, my awkwardness, and my never ending complexity of being overly optimistic and romantic while being cynical and sad at the same time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
What did the buffalo say to his son when he was leaving for college? "Bye, son."

Books: Chuck Plananiuk, David Sedaris, Richard Dawkins, Carl Sagan, Louise Rennison. My favorite book of all is Perks of Being a Wallflower. I rarely meet a book I don't care for, although I've been out of the reading loop recently. Suggestions?

Movies: The Land Before Time.

Netflix/TV: Most recently, Game of Thrones and cheesy CW shows. Community, Dexter, How I Met Your Mother, Downton Abbey, Grey's Anatomy, Weeds, 30 Rock, Bob's Burgers, Wilfred, Breaking Bad, The X-Files, Arrested Development, Chopped, Mad Men, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Good Eats, Portlandia, Iron Chef.

Music: Indie, ambient, old school emo, catchy tunes, old mixes, covers that are better than the originals, things I can belt out to, and pretty much everything in the cheesy indie synth pop genre. Explosions in the Sky, Sigur Ros, Stevie Wonder, Girl Talk, Elliott Smith, Taylor Swift (:::ahem::: I mean...), Walk Off the Earth.

Food: Always savory over sweet. Greek yogurt, fruit, eggs, pasta, vegetarian buffalo wings, grilled pizza, leafy greens, cheese (all of the cheese!), sesame tofu. Any and all seafood, Mexican, sushi, breakfast/brunch. Lord Hobo, Publick House, Mr. Sushi, Friendly Toast.
The six things I could never do without
Is your refrigerator running? Well then, you better go catch it!

Quad espressos with soy milk.
Ramona and Neville, my kitty cats.
Intimacy and sensuality.
Classy cocktails and classier beers.
Sleeping and naps.
Understanding and tactfulness.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Two muffins were baking in an oven. One muffin says, "Fuck, it's hot in here!" The other muffin says, "Fuck, a talking muffin!"

I think a lot about social inequality, privilege, -isms, trauma, prevention, crisis intervention, therapeutic interventions, and if there are ethical ways to prevent people from having children (that's kind of harsh, eh?).

Also, Should I go back to school and become a nurse practitioner or a doctor? When can I take a nap? What recipes do I really need to know by heart in order to successfully apply for Master Chef and wow Gordon Ramsey?
On a typical Friday night I am
Remember that time you went camping? It was intense.

Having a few good drinks, or Netflixing, or being utterly alone (well that was very emo of me), or dancing, or hanging out with my main squeeze, or having a candy party, or meeting someone new, or experimenting in the kitchen, or hanging out with someone I'm into, or out at a bar, or crashing into bed after quite an exhausting week. Some of those happen at the same time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
What did the hat say to the hat rack? "You stay here, I'll go on ahead."

I was home schooled, which makes me pretty "special". You really have no idea.

Some folks feel that I'm kind of amazing and I've grown to sort of believe them.
You should message me if
Boy, you must be juice because you are very fine.

Message me if:
You are intrigued by my profile and would like to know more about me. You're attractive, confident, intelligent, and self-aware. You like making out, playing Dr. Mario, laughing, being silly, and being serious when needed. You like people who are no nonsense, up front, open book, and tell-you-how-it-is. You are interested in having a board game night that also happens to involve wine and cheese. You like silly puns that everyone groans over. You like a lady with curvature and hips (read: 12 not 2). You are open-minded and okay with alternative relationship structures. You want to find a new going out pal, or a playmate, or a pirate adventure buddy, or company to go craft beer tasting. And, if you want to, of course.
