My self-summary
-The last time I took a Myers-Briggs test, I was INFJ.

-My sense of humor jumps all over the place. Sometimes it's light and silly, sometimes it's dark and uncomfortable. I also like puns.

-According to a Buzzfeed Quiz, I'm a 24 year old woman.

-I'm a little ambivalent toward OkCupid. I'm not sure that this place is for me. And yet I've been here for years. While I've never found much romance here, I've made some great friends.

-I had M&Ms for lunch today.

-I'm loyal, possibly to a fault.

-I haven't been on a date in a while. My life is full and dating just isn't something I think about. That said, it might be nice to go out and gel w/ someone. I don't have an end-game. (I'm not looking for a random hook-up.) When I meet someone new, I'd prefer to let a connection evolve organically. Let's talk, let's drink, let's laugh, let's see what happens.
What I’m doing with my life
I went to school for art, which means that I work in the service industry. I have a 10-7(ish) gig in The Loop. My job not my life-goal, but it is my career, and I do enjoy it, and that is important me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm wearing eyeliner, most likely.

(Random women on OkCupid have e-mailed me to tell me that I shouldn't wear make-up. Please understand that I'm not going to reply to those messages. I like my look. It makes me feel like me.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
****Books****

I always have a book on me. I'm always reading. I'm usually reading fiction, but that's not a hard rule. There are no hard rules w/ literature.

I'm a sucker for sad. I thought Joan Didion's Play It As It Lays was as beautiful as it was devastating. I relate to Raymond Carver stories more than I want to. Murakami conveys isolation like no one else. Faulkner is a genius w/ words, but he'd suck if he was on Twitter.

Right now, I'm reading Carrie Brownstein's memoir. She's so inspiring!

****Movies and Shows****

I'm a big fan of horror. I like thrillers. I enjoy a good drama.

****Music****

I'm a music dork. I once hosted a weekly radio show. I once edited an online music magazine. If you talk to me about music, my eyes widen and I start to babble. I won't do that here.

I like a lot of different genres. Depending on my mood, I'll be listening to Ambient Dub, Art Pop, Deathrock, Goth, Hip-Hop, IDM, Indie, Industrial, Minimal Techno, Pop, Rock, Shoegaze, Synth, or whatever else I'm feeling.

I remember the first time I ever heard Warm Leatherette by The Normal. It changed the way I listened to music.

****Food****

I'm not much of an epicure, but I do like French Fries and Tater Tots.

To drink, I enjoy a $10 bottle of red wine b/c I'm fucking posh.
The six things I could never do without
Self-expression.
People.
The feel of warm water when I wash my hands.
My cat, Familyyr.
The place between dream and wakefulness.
My liver.
On a typical Friday night I am
I lile going to concerts. Not counting festivals or DYI shows, I've been to about 30 shows this year. There is something about the feel of music played live.

I also hanging out w/ friends, writing, reading, and rocking a karaoke mic.

I was a bit of a club-kid back in the day and my 40-year old bones still enjoy a night of dancing. The beat goes on...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I write as a hobby and I sometimes use your profiles as character studies.
You should message me if
... You want to talk books or music.

... You want to go to a show. I could always use another concert buddy.

... You want to share your HBO GO password.
