My self-summary
26 • ESFJ • NY ➡OR • Moved for a change of pace and a new adventure • working at Willamette University • a bit of a wanderlust • I'm starting to want a substantial relationship with someone who's independent with their own aspirations, but then abandon that quest when I get bored • also at a point in my life where I'm excited by pursuing my own goals and committing feels like an anchor • hell bent on shattering glass ceilings • I spend a lot of time thinking about social identities and how they influence the way in which we navigate the world • if you don't I'm unsure how substantial our interactions could be • i'm very affectionate once I'm comfortable • and not on here for any specific thing, I just like human connection.

listening objectively
tactful transparency
word play

I spend a lot of time thinking about
-Finding ways to push and challenge myself so that I continue to grow as a person.
-Breaking old patterns of behavior even if they're seductive
-Piercings and tattoos
-Gender presentation
-How can anyone question that police brutality exists???!? Ignorance is bliss, but it sure ain't attractive.
-Code switching and how I won't do it, and does being my authentic self mean that I won't get as far in life? I think the only way to answer the question is to live it and see.
-Where do I want to live next?
-Are my 20s supposed to be an experimental mess? I think so.
-My unapologetic blackness and how I come into reclaiming my identities more and more every day
