My self-summary
I wake up early most days, but on weekends I stay in bed and read.

I want to live in a tiny house with big windows and a big yard w/ medium-large dog.

I take public transit and ride my bike during the week even though I have a car.

In the summer I like to go camping. In the winter I like the snow. I'm more of a blue square than a black diamond.

I'm wildly liberal, but can often pass for normal. I read books and drink one or two cups of coffee a day.

I've got a YMCA membership and a library card. I'd be into hanging out with you at either of those places.

I don't believe in super foods, but I really like good foods.

I'm in a really great open relationship with plenty of time for dating for the right person.

My car has a manual transmission, but I use my phone for directions to everything because I am a product of my environment.

I like going to shows, to movies, to museums, and outside.

I like hanging out on the couch, cooking dinner, board games, and video games.
What I’m doing with my life
I went to school for publishing and now I work with publishing software that supports open access research. In my spare time I raise two magnificently lazy cats and practice making an above average cup of coffee. I like my cats and coffee black, but I usually have almond milk around if you're into that.
I’m really good at
Washing dishes, finishing what's on my plate, and writing.

I've been told more than once that I should be a professional broccoli chef (but I looked into it and it's not a real career).

Practicing good form at the gym.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room.
Music: I wanna be a singer like Lou Reed.
Books: I like Margaret Atwood, Miriam Toews, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Ann Lekie. Some dudes I like are George Saunders, Kurt Vonnegut, John Scalzi, and Robert E Howard
Food: Coffee and eggs
Six things I could never do without
Rice cookers are pretty good, but I could always just use a pot.

I really use my bike a lot. I commute and carry all my groceries in a crate I stuck on the back.

Pencils are my favorite drawing tool.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm gonna do on the weekend. What I'll do next. Books. What to cook for dinner. What the cats are doing (sorry, but we are incompatible if you don't like cats/dogs/all animals). I had a pet pig for a few years growing up. How cool it would be to know how to build more things with my hands. How the grass is always greener. How much time I spend looking at screens. How to make my routine just a little bit better. What I should think about next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going to the movies, drinking a beer, making dinner, smoking a little pot on lot of couch, or helping my cats learn guitar.
You should message me if
You want to go see art. You want to go to the dog show or the Renaissance Faire. You want to go to Monster Trucks!

You're serious about miniature golf/bowling.

You want to try a new game together and casually ramp up our competitiveness until it ruins our relationship.

You're comfortable with non-monogamous, meaningful relationships and have enough time and space to meet a new person.

You want to go camping, hiking, or backpacking and see how far we can make it.

You want to get a drink and talk about whatever we talk about.
The two of us
