I'm nerdy and obsessive about very specific things, and am interested in politics, social justice, feminism, literature, publishing, and musicals. I think subways are sexy and empowering. My moral development and outlook on life were strongly influenced by my parents, Star Trek, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. My goals involve getting the hell out of Texas and living somewhere new, different, cosmopolitan, and incredible; maintaining intimate, life-long friendships; figuring out how to get a grad degree (possibly in publishing or media studies or both) and get into the publishing industry; getting over my years-long writer's block; and developing into the best version of myself that I can be (meaning I'd like to be brave, strong, loving, just, and much less judgmental than I am now).
I curse a lot and apparently somewhat awkwardly. "Fuck" is my favorite word because it communicates my anger, frustration, and befuddlement so well. I hate the c-word and can't bring myself to say it.
I don't want to just learn self-defense; I want to learn offense. In other words, I think it would be so cool if I could deliver roundhouse kicks to the face.
I have a great relationship with my family. And, although I'm a natural introvert and love my alone time, I also seem to have a romantic sense of friendship and intimacy. I'm not someone who has a million friends, because I don't need or want a million casual friends. I just need a few truly good friends, a small band of allies who I love unconditionally and who will do the same for me. These people are like a second family to me. So I have two families. Somehow this seems like the most important thing to know about me.
