My self-summary
I'm a playful, energetic, silly person with a fierce determined side that believes in fighting for justice and community. I don't tend to focus on what people think of me, but I just live my life as who I am and let people accept me or not for that.

I come from a very close, loving family who taught me to care for those around me. I know that my family will always be there for me if I ever need help and support which I'm very grateful for and I will always be there for my family if they need anything.

I don't know what else to tell you except that whether it works out or not, I promise to make getting to know me an enjoyable experience.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an EMT working in North Dakota in a small town within MHA Nation. I'm just starting up nursing school, so that I can be an ALS provider for our ambulance service.

I spend a lot of my time with my family and closest friends. I tend to focus on having more meaningful relationships and friendships with fewer people.
I’m really good at
I love cooking and I take pride in letting myself be creative. I love to make unique dishes and explore different cuisines and techniques. I also love baking and enjoy making pastries. I'm fascinated with food science, so I love learning about that, but either way, I don't think I could live without cooking.

Other than that, I'm not too shabby at math. My math doesn't taste as good as my pastries, but if you ever need somebody to help you with some math homework, I'm pretty good at that, too.
The first things people usually notice about me
Nowadays, in the town I live in, everybody knows me from my job working for the local ambulance service.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I think that overall my interest in popular culture or my knowledge of music, tv shows and movies is extremely limited compared to most people that I meet. As a kid, I listened to songs and would never care who was singing it. I'd even dance, appreciate the artist but never put the time in to know who I listened to.

When people around me start talking about their favorite bands, I usually haven't heard of any of them. It's the way that I've always been, so I don't think that the best way to connect with me is to talk about some music that you like. But for the sake of it, growing up, I loved listening to Salt n Peppa, SWV, Tupac and Bell Biv Devoe. Nowadays, I love dancing to funk and soul more than anything else.

As far as movies and TV goes, I watched my share of TV, but when I was growing up, so often my TV shows were science shows and nature documentaries. So, if you watched PBS and loved watching 3-2-1 Contact, we might remember some of the same shows, but overall, I'm ignorant of a lot of the stuff out there. Where I grew up as a kid in Northern New Mexico, we only had PBS.

I don't have a TV right now, but I enjoy watching The Big Bang Theory when I go to my grandma's house, but I don't watch any shows on a regular basis.

As far as movies go, I like fantasy movies alright. I usually have no idea which movies are out now nor do I usually go to the theater. I loved watching The Princess Bride with my uncle when I was in high school and we both lived in my grandpa's basement. I remember watching Star Trek with him every night until he had to go to bed, but sometimes we'd stay up late and watch Monty Python.

I also loved Kids in the Hall growing up and I appreciate comedy such as Hari Kondabolu.

As for food, that's completely different. I love to explore all kinds of different foods. I've already mentioned that I love cooking. I have fond memories of cooking food with my grandpa when he was alive.

I love inexpensive, non-pretentious food that somebody's grandma made the best. I love the food in some expensive restaurants, but they better truly bring the flavor because I don't give a shit about the atmosphere. And I'm happier when I can go to a hole in the wall with better food than most fancy places.
Six things I could never do without
Affection -- There are different ways of expressing affection, but one way or another, I'm very affectionate and I like people who are too. (Even when they're friends)

Good Food -- Cooking and eating.

Play -- I am not above climbing a tree, playing tag or generally running around like a little kid.

Fighting for Justice -- Without fighting against oppression, I'd feel like I was wasting my life. How to do this, which struggles to take a part in and how to effectively do so is something that I'm evaluating right now.

Family and Community -- Having support and people to care about is vital to life. I believe in getting to know your neighbors and looking out for each other. I love having a large family who will always be there for me and I'll be there for them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I have always enjoyed math and science since I was a little kid and growing up that's what I found most fascinating, but now that I'm older, I've found that I think more about people: How they relate to each other, how systems of oppression affect us and how to dismantle systems of oppression.

But, I still enjoy math and science, so I still think about that a lot as well.

I've also noticed that I tend to think more about health and building support than I did when I was a bit younger.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm starting a new phase in life. I'm not sure what my Friday nights are going to look like. I can tell you that bars usually bore me, but anything can be fun with the right company.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not really a private person. I'll answer most questions you might ask so long as you do it respectfully.
You should message me if
You should message me if you would enjoy sharing some stories from your childhood or to hear some of mine.

If you have a huge heart and you generally care about people and feel motivated to do something with those feelings.

If you think about serious things, but you're able to at least sometimes step back and have some fun.

If you have a strong priority towards family and understand how powerful familial support can be.
