Friends first, everything else second.

My virtue is Charity, and my vice is Sloth.
I'm silly and serious and a bit of a space cadet.
I'm cuddly and affectionate.
I love to learn things, any things. And then tell you all about them.
I love to listen to people talk about subjects they love, and then have long debates and discussions about it.
I like puzzles, physical problem solving (building stuff when you don't actually have the proper tools at hand!), and playing on jungle gyms.
I like to build myself nests out of blankets and pillows and sit in them all day on the computer.
I like serious, passionate discussions about social justice and world issues.
I secretly love horrible puns and dad jokes.
I'm a nerd and a geek and occasionally a dork.
What I’m doing with my life
Spending time with my boyfriend, friends, and their pets.
Cuddling and instagramming photos of my quintet of cats.
Getting a surprisingly fun paralegal associate's degree .
Doing jigsaw puzzles while drinking wine.
Going to museums and zoos when I can get someone to go with me.
Trying to catch up on a lifetime of culturally significant film (I didn't have a TV as kid, and I didn't bother watching it much in High school).
Reading, reading, reading. Reading.
Learning to love myself and be confident in the mind and body that I have.
I’m really good at
Procrastinating, gushing about doggies, being outside, cleaning, listening to people, being a know-it-all, talking, being compassionate, compromising, moderating disagreements, calling people out, taking care of people, puzzles, physical problem solving, teaching people about social justice issues, Googlefu, Abusing parentheses (because making snarky and/or informative asides is my favourite), consistently using oxford commas, and getting super excited about things.
The first things people usually notice about me
People tend to comment on my abnormally tiny hands a lot. In fact, people seem to get the impression that I'm incredibly tiny in general. I don't know where they come up with that, but I'll smack your kneecaps if you try to pick me up.

The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Languages. Ethics. Academics. Popular culture, social dynamics and how those affect our lives. Sociolinguistics. My cello, choir, and music in general. Fanfiction and Fandom. Tumblr. Kink and its infinite possibilities. What I want out of my education and my life in general. All the awesome books I need to read. How fucking awesome science is. How I would execute a long-term wilderness-survival situation. Dogs and puppies. Whether or not I can get away with not doing laundry for one more day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Curled up watching movies or just talking about the universe with someone. Running around with my boyfriend's dog. Discussing a SJ and/or complex moral issues with a friend. Watching one of my favourite shows on my computer (and screaming about the subtleties of characterization and cinematography on tumblr). Playing neopets. Indulging in fanfiction (Anyone want to talk Johnlock, Snarry, Hannigram, or Doctor/Rose Tyler with me? Let us squee together about our OTPs!). Snuggling with the cats.

((It's a very exciting, extroverted life I lead, obviously.))
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I get really nervous about messaging people. I'm working on taking the initiative, though!

ADHD, Depression, and Anxiety are the arch-enemies that invade my brain and require me to fight brain wars occasionally.

Half of me wants to have an exciting career that lets me travel around the world. The other half wants to be a stay at home homeschooling mom with three large dogs and a smattering of cats. I'm still not sure how I'm going to satisfy both halves.
You should message me if
You want to be friends. Great friends, but just friends.

You want to get together to drink wine/tea/coffee and get excited about substantive topics.

We have 80% or greater match.

You want to cuddle on the couch while showing me movies you can't believe I've lived this long without seeing.

You'd like to go with me to the zoo, a museum, a music concert (of most any genre, but I have a special fondness for classical, ethnic, and jazz), or theatre (especially of the shakespearean variety, and/or involving puppetry).

You know of a deserted or adult-sized playground and want to play "red hot lava monsters" or Pirates with me.

You have something intelligent, interesting, and participatory to ask or discuss with me. Let me know you've actually looked at my profile.

You want to drive out into the middle of nowhere and tell me stories about the constellations. You can make them up if you don't know any, I don't mind.

You're at home with the geeky, the nerdy, and the unusual.
