My self-summary
I'm going to put this in big bold, capital letters:


So when you message me, telling me how interesting I am and how I should message you back, and I browse through your questions and under 'things I find important' I see "Would you date a transgender person? NO" it means that you should probably look elsewhere.

Okay, PSA over.

Everything below this needs to be updated pretty badly. Reactivating this so I can meet more people to hang out and chat with.

I love video games, film, and animation. I spend most of my income dressing up in costumes and going to conventions. Looking for friends to chat about nerdy things.
What I’m doing with my life
Going back to school because I'm not using my fancy university PoliSci degree at all.
I’m really good at
Being vague.
The first things people usually notice about me
Apparently my smile. People like it, so I guess those years of wearing braces paid off!

I've also been getting a lot of compliments on my hair lately. I haven't really had a haircut lately, but whatever I'm doing with it must be working. =)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
*Puella Magi Madoka Magica
*Steins Gate
*Shingeki no Kyojin/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
Outlet for crativity - I've realized that if I can't create something, whether it's writing, drawing, photography, costumes, etc. I slowly go stir crazy.

Hmm....I'll try to think of something else, but I've lived without anything else before and survived. =)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future: Things I want to do, things I wish I could do, projects I have on the slate, costumes I'd love to make, films I'd love to produce, where I'm going in life. I have a dozen 5-year plans ranging from vet tech to film school, and I adjust to whatever seems to be working out best at the moment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either visiting a friend's house for group dinner and hangout time, working on some crazy project (filming, propmaking, etc.), or just lounging about at home on the computer or with some video games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been in the military. I served for 7 years in the Marines, 3 deployments, 2 to Iraq, 1 to West Africa. I loved it, I'm glad I did it. I would reenlist if I could, but I can't. It seems like a strange thing to 'admit', but I find that when you mention you were in the military, people lose sight of who you are as person and just see you as an icon, whether it's as 'hero' or a 'baby killer' or simply something out of a bad Hollywood movie. It's something that is very near and dear to me, but also a part of my life that I'm leaving behind. One of my pet peeves is stupid questions about my time in or being too focused on it. I came, I saw, my contract ended. Now let's talk about my dog and that cool movie that came out last week.

If I ever seem superficial, not wanting to talk to in depth about politics, wanting to just enjoy hanging out at home or plan for a convention instead of worrying about what else is going on in the world, this is why. I feel I've earned a respite from fretting about bigger things and want to simply sit back and enjoy the little things in life.

Also, now that I've written about everything else, I'll mention that I'm transgender. You know how I talked about people losing sight of who you are? It happens all the time with being transgender. Being trans is a part of me, and I accept and am relatively open about it. But I don't generally bring it up because I want people to see the me that loves animals, makes movies, dresses up and goes to con, and laughs at stupid puns.

If either of these two admissions are things you are fixated on, then this probably won't work out.
