My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've spent the last eight years living in New York and it's the longest I've ever spent in any one place. Growing up my parents did environmental development, so I have lived on three continents and I have traveled to over a quarter of the world's countries. I have and immense appreciation for how lucky I am to have seen so much of the world and hope to see more of it yet (travel buddies always sought).

bleeding heart liberal, and not afraid to use the word "feminist" to describe myself. Spending my teens in Sweden had a large effect on my social consciousness.

My #1 activity is probably just hanging out with people, exploring the city, and talking about silly things, like what is the etymology of "duck"?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working to live.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Giving massages and giving them often
- Lifting heavy things
- Safewords and consent
- Living out of a backpack
- Not being bored
- Growing a beard

Anyone who really likes Catcher in the Rye is screwed on this site. Whenever I see someone who lists it and/or other high school books, like To Kill a Mockingbird, etc, I assume they haven't read since high school.

My all time favorite book is The Little Prince. Not because it's very complicated, but because it makes a lot of sense.

I read a lot. Dirty pleasures are Lovecraft, Terry Pratchett, William Gibson. I read stuff like that when I don't feel like thinking too much. I try to read every other book with something that forces me to grow, think, and feel a bit. it can be hard to properly digest something that changes you as a person. Lately I've been reading William S Burroughs and a few ethnographies.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
We all need food and water. We all go insane without human contact. So I'll not include those in my list.

1. Baths
2. Backscratches
3. Being jacked into the net
4. Audiobooks/podcasts
5. Scheduled time for working out at least every other day
6. Travel
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Etymology. Sometimes you can track the evolution of an idea through history just by looking at the way a word is used. Where did the ideas in your head originate and why?

Silly pop trivia. Like my theory that it's actually the goblins in the Harry Potter universe that keep the wizard population from taking over the normal world. They control the wizard economy, so they have the most to gain. Or maybe the catholic church is run by evil wizards.

How people work, and why they work.

Naked people. Food. Good naps. More food and naked people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
A list of my last few Friday activities. For science.

Feb 20: Got stoned for the first time in a year and looked at the stars in the Caribbean night sky.

Feb 13: Friday the 13th. Took one if my best friends to a spa and a great dinner. Then went home, took half a Xanax and slept for 14 hours.

Feb 6: Went to a lesbian erotica reading. Then drank scotch and played fishbowl with a group of friends.

Jan 30: Flew to Dallas because I had never been to Texas. Shot guns, hung out in McMansions, and helped a new friend shave her head.

Jan 23: Had dinner with by brother, my cousin, and the first really close friend I made in New York. We had tequila, and tacos. Then beers at my favorite dive bar. My old boss showed up and we had a snowball fight.

Jan 16: It's rather fuzzy. I remember lots of martinis and some burlesque. The next day's hangover on the other hand is firmly planted in my memory.

Jan 9: Friend's birthday. He likes beer and dancing, so we drank beer and danced.

Jan 2: Still recovering from New Years and jet lag. Seamless and Netflix. I discovered Always Sunny in Philadelphia and watched all of it.

Dec 26: Old friend's birthday in Stockholm. Lots of mead and darkness.

Dec 19: Day drinking in Paris. Gave a new friend moral support while she flashed Paris from the Eiffel tower.

Dec 12: Day drinking and 8 hour walk in London. Touristy stuff.

Dec 5: "Day" drinking in Iceland hostel. Too fucking cold and dark to walk around for more than an hour. Roomed with Australians and gained a new appreciation for the word cunt.

Apparently I drink a lot on Fridays (and when I travel). The rest of the days I'm usually boringly at the gym at 7AM.

If you think life is weird but entertaining. If you've been places I haven't been or if you know thing I don't know and you want to tell me about them. If you like swapping stories of adventures gone awry. If you want to brainstorm for things we haven't thought about before. If you like making friends. If you have things you like to talk about that you actually care about. If you're bored.
