I believe in empowerment of women in the workplace and discarding gender norms. Probability is the closest thing I have to a god, and I reject the idea of universal morality.
I practice ethical non-monogamy. I find hierarchical relationship structures detrimental. I try to give more than I take, and my ideal self is a person who is compassionate when under stress, and courageous when afraid.
When I'm not working or spending time with my partner aresenum, I'm spending time with Radish, our four month old Australian Shepherd. Things I've learned:
1. Puppies are capable of great and terrible things
2. God, this is a lot of work
3. I love this
I never thought of myself as a dog person before, but this experience is helping me to form my own definition of 'family' that I did not know was there. Still don't want kids though.
Other things - I like listening to podcasts, doing some indoor rock climbing, or planning a trip to West Virginia for a hippy camp that has a mild resemblance to a cult.
I find myself wanting to get out of the city frequently, and I usually drive north for about 45 minutes to go hiking every few weekends.
I do happen to be a huge dork with a big collection of board games. I host board game parties every month or two.

How strange it is to identify as a moderate, despite my hippy like eccentricities
Meeting someone from OKC sometimes has this weird subtext where you're supposed to be attracted to one another. Please be understanding that I probably won't be attracted to you within 4 hours of meeting you.
you embrace some form of polyamory / non monogamy
