My self-summary
**I'm most likely moving to the Denver area soon, hence the zip code, but am actually currently located in Eugene, OR. Looking to chat to some folks in my potential future locale!**

Well I suppose I largely define myself by what I'm passionate about. Those things include, but are not limited to:

-The environment and the wonderful creatures that inhabit it
-Social Justice-y things
-Art of any form
-Being hopelessly idealistic
-Filling my head with factoids and notions about the way the world works

I can be hard to get to know, not because I don't want you to learn about me, but because I tend to be somewhat on the shy side when we first meet. Get to know me a little and I'm a real goof.

I am sapiosexual to the max. Being willing to philosophize over a beer with me is kind of a must.

I love being active. I run and have been recently getting into spinning poi and hoop dancing, although I'm extremely new to both. Still recovering from a childhood full of klutziness.
What I’m doing with my life
My current goal is to become a teacher. I love working with kids; their endless curiosity and openness is really inspiring.

At the moment I'm a student, currently working towards my degree in Environmental Studies with a minor in Biology. My great loves are ecology and environmental justice issues.

My thesis is taking up a lot of my time these days. Just to ward off the inevitable question, I'm writing about eco-terrorism, 9/11, the U.S.A. Patriot Act, and other such light-hearted things. I can explain that in more detail if I must, but depending on the day I may throttle you if you ask.

I also try to keep that whole "balance" thing going while I try to finish up college. Sometimes I'm successful at it. I draw and dabble in printmaking, although the latter was once upon a time really. I also knit ferociously. I tend to be rather fidgety; why not do something with my hands that makes warm, beautiful things!

Um, I suppose that's it then. I enjoy buying books that I would really love to read, then feeling badly because I never seem to have enough time to read for pleasure. Oh well.
I’m really good at
Doodling when I should be note-taking. Oops.

Starting and never finishing short stories.

Stressing out over nothing.

Baking. It helps with the stress.

Erm....I'm fairly okay at cooking. Really good might be an overstatement. Over-salting is my downfall.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well. I've been told I have red hair. And a nice smile. So perhaps those things.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have a lot to say in these categories, so I'm just gonna list a few. If you wanna know more, feel free to ask :)

- Anything by Michael Pollan
- Doors of Perception
- Any urban gardening books I can get my hands on
- Into the Wild

- Donnie Darko
- Garden State
- Amelie
- The Indiana Jones movies. Raiders of the Lost Ark is my fave.

- Veronica Mars
- Scrubs!!
- Firefly

- Moby
- Pretty Lights
- Death Cab for Cutie
- Freelance Whales

Other than Mexican- leftover scramble is the way to go.
The six things I could never do without
Well I think this question is silly because really I could do without many things. But I guess if I had to choose I would say:

1) Good conversation
2) Music
3) Delicious food, made with love
4) People to share these things with
5) Cuddling

That's all I've got. Perhaps I'll think of more.

Now here's one thing I think OKC should add. Six things I could do without:

1) Money
2) Gender/sexuality norms
3) Racism
4) People who are mean for no reason
5) "Things people are supposed to do with their lives"
6) The notion that people must be happy all the time. Feel your feelings, folks!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why it is that I constantly second-guess myself in group social situations, and therefore am often seen as "quiet." I promise I have a lot to say, self-confidence is a constant work in progress.

My next knitting project. I have knitting ADHD, un-diagnosed. It's an issue.

The fact that some days I want to surround myself with people of all types and hug the world, and other days I want to sit in my apartment by myself and read novels all day. It's all good.

Other things too, I'm sure.
On a typical Friday night I am
Pick a few, combine, probably add a healthy dash of whiskey:

1) At a show
2) Knitting while reading
3) Being a space pilot
4) Drawing silly things
5) Wandering around Eugene

One of these is a lie. Choose carefully.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't really know what this question means for me. I don't consider much private. Ask away, I'll probably answer.
You should message me if
If you think I seem cool, and you are also a cool person, we should maybe hang out sometime. Maybe cool things will happen.

Fair warning: I'm not looking for a romantic thing necessarily, just whatever happens organically.
