My self-summary
I'm a poet and a chronic dreamer. If we get to know each other well, I will probably want to write a poem about you, and, if you are also a poet, I will give your words my fullest attention.

I find myself in the strange situation of being a physically totally blind person with a brain that identifies as sighted. This quandery has piqued my interest in topics such as medical mysteries, performativity, spirituality, psychology, neuroscience, synesthesia, dermo-optical perception, narratology, and art. I don't want to force things, but I am hoping to find someone who wants to collaborate creatively, whether we're writing novels (I'm all character, but no plot), writing songs (I'm all lyrics but suck at melodies), or drawing/painting/photographing/mosaic-ing (I'm bursting with ideas, but am not so great at the execution).

On the practical tangible side of things, I just became a licensed English teacher! (So messages such as "how ru" probably won't get you very far :p). I was also recently accepted into Harvard's arts in education program, so will be moving back to Boston at the end of this summer. But I want to make the best of this Vermont summer, so if you are up for adventures, (tandem bike-riding, rock-climbing, swimming-holing, kyaking, and beach-bumming, just to name a few) give me a shout. I haven't had a creemee yet, and this needs to be remedied.

I'm not lactose intolerant or vegan, but nonetheless am addicted to chai lattes with almond milk. I also love matte lattes, for the rhyme as much as for the taste. I'm a lover of girls with pixy-voices, of wounded warriors, of secret languages, of fragmentary writing.

*Due to the excessive number of messages I've received that start off with "If you are blind how do you do x, y, or z?" the troublemaker in me felt it necessary to append the following FAQ to my profile.

Q: Since you're blind, do you have, like, amazing hearing?
A: Sorry, could you like, repeat the question. I didn't quite catch that.
Q: If you are blind, how are you using this site?
A: There is a geni/love slave/demon trapped in my computer who reads everything on my screen. It's name is JAWS, and my friends have reported that it kind of sounds like a Martian on drugs.

Q: Did you have someone help you set up your profile?
A: Yes. Your mom.
Q: Does your life have more substance than mine? Does bliiindness bring you closer to the Truuuth?
A: No, but I probably bang into more walls than you do.
What I’m doing with my life
Learning yoga, fuck yeah! Getting it done for America (or not), making ass-loads of pottery (including mugs with Braille
on them) and attempting to sell it on Etsy, learning how to draw (horizon lines are horizontal, really?), writing metric shittons of poetry (I wish), reading critical theory for fun (Lacan, Butler, Deleuze, Derrida), , trying to come up with new ways to be ridiculous
I’m really good at
Not being inspirational. Imagining what colors look like and going on and on about the composition of paintings and photographs, even though, by all rights, I shouldn't know what the hell I'm talking about.
The first things people usually notice about me
I hope that it's my empathy, authenticity and my playfulness.
A woman in my writing class said that I have a combination of vulnerability and edge.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Victorian novels, slave narratives, The Diamond Age, 1q84, Pages for you; All True Lovers, Ender's Game, White Oleander, Middlesex, The house of Sleep, Transformation, Tigana, Wuthering Heights, The Space Between Us, Spin, Harry Potter (though I like the fanfic better)Afterimages; Captive Prince (it's not a "real" book but I don't care), young adult novels (and analyzing their tropes) are my guilty pleasure; Cider house Rules, Forrest Gump, The Sixth Sense, The Piano, Loving Annabelle; seafood, exotic fruit, french fries, anything Asian
As for music, I consider myself semi amusical (that's a thing!), but I enjoy listening to it with other people. I like trance, techno, and indi-folk, basically anything that doesn't totally overwhelm my brain.
The six things I could never do without
sushi, friends, books with lots of psychological tension, vocative commas, laughter, family, the word fuck (especially when said in a South African accent).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future! I'm always coming up with random apps/ideas.
Whatever weird, annoying computer problem I happen to be dealing with (virtual machines, ftw).
If I were the fly, and the spider invited me into her parlor, what would we talk about, and would it matter to her that I can use APA style correctly?
The relationship between intimacy and language.
Why all my poems seem to be drawn from my own experience, and why I seem incapable of writing about abstraction/nature/womanhood without spewing cliches.

The thematic, lesbionic retelling of the Little Mirmaid I am writing. (Edit: Said retelling has been abandonned; someone needs to kick me in the ass so that I can finish it).
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging with friends, watching movies/going out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a bit of a teacher thing.
I’m looking for

  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You are a great communicator.
You want to go to an art gallery and describe the shit out of some paintings.
You are soft-spoken and gentle, but still manage to be sure of yourself.
