The best times are spent having fun with others, relaxed and laughing. That, or road trips in the desert or staring at the majesty of mountains or laying in hammocks, but I figure that it's people I will think about when I'm close to death. My ideal for the far future is to live in a household with a partner that I love and trust deeply, perhaps with other partners and best friends of ours. My ideal for now, realistically, is knowing and loving myself more and more as new goals and challenges arise. The thought of going on dates with new people and supposedly putting your best face (or is it best foot?) forward and monitoring composure tends to send me into anxiety and disinterest, so I tend to date among friends or not at all. So what I'm saying is, only friend dates here, please, haha.
Born and raised in southeast Austin. Undergrad in Arkansas. I love eating avocados whole, plainly or with salsa in the middle. Not long ago I enjoyed sweet potatoes for the first time, so it's still a big treat when I taste any. I like dancing, playing board games, walking in the sun or on warm nights, reading at bookstores, singing in my car, and watching shows that give me the feels.
What I’m doing with my life
Working at the coolest and queerest thrift store in town! We provide financial, material, and promotional support to small organizations that aid marginalized groups of people. Other than that, working on myself, feeling myself in the way of Beyonce x)
I’m really good at
Drawing. Dancing. Being warm to others... even when I probably ought to give them the finger, honestly.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I smile easily. Curly hair. Not white. People that want to know my race and figure they and I will most likely stay strangers to each other tend to ask, "What are you?" Gee, I don't know, last I checked I'm human, aren't I? There are more polite ways of asking that don't make me feel like I'm a different species.

The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why are these old white men trying to make decisions about my body- what I put in it and what comes out of it?? Also I'm hungry, and I'm restless, and I'm horny, and I'm kinda sleepy-in what order do I take care of things?? The daily struggle, haha.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix. I know.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In high school, dreaming of having a girlfriend, my main dream was rolling in the grass in the sunshine, kissing... haha. Oh, memories... They make us who we are.
You should message me if
you like intersectional feminism, hiking, dancing, shows I mentioned, Forbidden Fruit workshops and Bedpost Confessions and Mortified (sexy, smart, funny, live things) ...and pansexual femmes with unfulfilled urges to be more non-binary (because gender is a construct).
Oh yeah, and if you like games like Telephone-Pictionary or Four Square! Okay, done.
