My self-summary
Trans girl trying to figure out my life. Also just to throw in some more info: Marine veteran, nerd, gamer, cinephile, photographer, cosplayer

Going through a divorce and realizing I have a bad habit of jumping from relationship to relationship, so trying to learn to take things slow. I'm only looking for friends right now so please be understanding of that.

I'm really, really quiet and shy and awkward in person so I like to chat a lot online to get to know people.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently working on a lot of self improvement. Seeing a therapist, exercising a lot, and trying to learn to be a better person.

Also trying to be more politically active instead of being such a shut in. Trying to volunteer at various LGBT organizations.
I’m really good at
Making cosplay and movie props!
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, how soft my hair is, or if I put in the effort, my eyeliner.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
*Halo
*Puella Magi Madoka Magica
*Persona
*Steins Gate
*Attack on Titan

I also love RPGs (Mostly western: Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Fallout 1&2), strategy games (From Command & Conquer to Civilization and Total War), and shooters.

I love movies and cinema. While I have a huge list of classics and favorites (I will never NOT be in awe at the first sighting of a Dinosaur in Jurassic Park), I really like films with a bittersweet ending and a realstic style to them. The Pacific, Generation Kill, District 9, and Lost in Translation are a few favorites that I've rewatched multiple times.

I love animated films, both western and east asian. Disney, Don Bluth, CGI, anime.

Bookwise, my favorite fictional books are Starship Troopers, Catch-22, and All Quiet on the Western Front. I also love biographies.

I love stories that are shades of gray, not black and white.

Music wise, I tend to like soundtracks or songs I can put a visual image to. I also like songs that juxtapose something harsher (such as rap) with something calmer (such as piano music).
The six things I could never do without
Friends - Even though I'm very shy and don't talk much, I really love being around people.

Running/Hiking - This is my primary source of exercise and helps me cope with having too many thoughts in my head at times.
.
Noodles - My favorite food! Spaghetti, ramen, Chinese beef noodle soup...all of my favorite foods typically involve noodles. :9

Cute animals - I love my dog and cat. Plushies can substitute in a pinch though!

Cosplay/Props - This is my primary creative outlet. You can check out some of the stuff I made at GatewayProps.com ! :) I make more stuff than I wear, but I enjoy both parts of the hobby.

Conventions - Anime, comic, or video game cons. These are my main social events and how I met many of my friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be a better person. I do a lot of self reflection and criticism.

Wondering how certain props or effects were made in a film. Or just over-analyzing the script of a movie.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching something on Crunchyroll or Netflix, or maybe playing a video game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I struggle with depression. I'm working hard to try and learn to love myself without relying on others.
You should message me if
You:
You go to sci-fi/fantasy/comic/anime conventions. Bonus points if you go to any norcal or socal cons! I'm always up for casual con meet ups. :)

Cosplay or make props. Tell me about what you're working on!

Want to watch an anime or move, or play a video game. Sci fi stuff tends to be my favorite but I love trying new things. Right now I'm watching a lot of light hearted fluff like Yuri On Ice and Kiss Him, Not Me. Also since people always ask me what video game I'm playing, it's Civilization VI right now.

LGBT+ folks! I'm trying to get more involved in the community ^_^ Also, if you have any questions about being LGBT+, I'll do my best to be an open resource. ^_^

Physically I like more androgynous looking, but still more masculine folks. (Sorry beefy, bearded woodsman types!). That said, I'm up for meeting new friends regardless of how you look. Bonus points if you're taller than me!

Also, I really like dominant people who take charge. And I enjoy cuddling and physical contact, though I'm still getting used to it. But also allow me to reemphasize I'm not looking for anything sexual right now. :P
