My self-summary
I have a constant aching need to meet new people.
I am honest and queer and soft-spoken and sarcastic.
I'm in portland for the summer ('16) and will be mostly in eugene starting this fall through spring. and then I'm in portland for the next stretch of adulthood.
I am into casual sex but that doesn't automatically make me into you.
Also I've noticed a lot of guys message me talking about casual sex and whatnot and I go to their profile and it says they're only into dating and friends...?? This makes me uncomfortable and I don't know how to respond.
(and since having added this above bit to my profile, I've had a lot of guys messaging me, telling me why they don't put down that they're into casual sex, even though they are. usually along the lines of "oh well girls might not want to date me if they think I'm into casual sex", as if this is a solid reason to lie on your profile. I'm not impressed by this answer, though I understand the complex pressures of heteronormative expectations).
ALSO my average time for responding to a message is like 12 hours so if you say "hey wanna hang out tonight" I'll probably read it after the fact and feel bad. If you want to meet up, and I'm into it, I'll probably give you my number.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm studying psychology at U of O. My dream job is to be a therapist. But a school psychologist, or a counselor to a non-profit, or a psychology teacher would all be so dandy. I plan to work summers and save up money to get me through undergraduate school at least.
In a less materialistic/physical/practical sense, I'm trying to be happy. This means spending time with people that make me feel good and not getting lost in things that make me feel bad. I feel better every day that goes by.
I’m really good at
How do I talk about what I'm good at without sounding like an idiot. I'm really into music. I play piano and sing, and I write songs.

I hope to be good at consoling people and making them feel comfortable/safe/healed.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have very curly hair. I've also been told that I give off a quiet and meek vibe, but only at first. If we become friends I will sass you into the next dimension. I guess it's to compensate.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm in love with the His Dark Materials book series. It's beautiful. Also One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Roald Dahl's books, Song of Solomon, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Lord of the Flies, Too Far, The Stranger, the Leviathan series, How I Killed My Best Friend, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and East.

I love trippy psychological movies like Donnie Darko, Trainspotting, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Inception, Hard Candy, Cloud Atlas, or Waking Life. But I guess any movie can be "psychological" if you think too deeply about it. I also love Studio Ghibli. And lesbian movies.

It's hard to find tv shows that don't get ridiculously dramatic or dull. But... Orphan Black, Portlandia, Lie to Me, Misfits, Masters of Sex, Broad City, Orange is the New Black, True Detective, and Jessica Jones.

I don't really exclusively include or exclude any genres of music. Regina Spektor is my idol. I also love Gotye, Radiohead, The Decemberists, Lana Del Rey, Alt-J, Sia, The Shins, tUnE-yArDs, Simon and Garfunkel, Chet Faker, Belle and Sebastian, Hozier, Florence and the Machine, Talking Heads, Fleet Foxes, The Head and the Heart, Kimbra, Sara Barielles, Metric, and my favorite: Typhoon.

I love food. So so so much. I love chocolate, pasta, tofu, brown rice/quinoa, strawberries, and home-made bread. I'm vegetarian. I try to find a balance between healthy emotional indulgence and conscientiousness about what goes into my body.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sex.
People that I care about.
There's always a song in my head, but I'm usually playing it on the piano in my head or seeing the chord progression somehow illustrated in my head.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hopefully there is no typical and I'll be doing something different every week. But I'd say internetting or spending time with rad people.
You should message me if
...you wanna jam.
...you are open and honest.
...you wanna eat good food and talk about our innermost thoughts and feelings.
