I went to school for 3d modeling, motion graphics, and general digital media stuff. Before that, I went to school to learn to make jewelry. Neither have proven to be as lucrative as I would like, thus my current job is as a daycare provider. While I often wish I had a less messy, less exhausting job, I kind of hate sitting at a desk all day and I've won the cool coworker lottery at my current day care, so I guess I'm satisfied enough.
I do a lot of things! Playing bari sax with Seattle band Chaotic Noise Marching Corps takes up a great deal of my time. I also like to volunteer at local circus and arts festivals/events. I have twice a week band rehearsals, once a week burner potluck, and a show or pub crawl or festival or whatnot most every weekend. I was describing my life to a friend and they said, "You're building community." It's true, that is what I am doing more than anything. I like people who like to do that as well.
Other miscellanea: I'm a night-owl, I drink a lot, and I'm fat. And I have tattoos and pink hair. And to my friends, I say "meow" instead of "hi" or "see you later." I like to read web comics and dress extravagantly when I go out. Sometimes I carry around a megaphone because I am pretty quiet (my voice is quiet, and I sometimes don't really say much. Also I like to threaten people with the megaphone's built-in siren). I am kind of terrible at most games and sports-y things, mainly because I do not care about winning.
I saw a t-shirt that reads, "Feminist Killjoy." I need that t-shirt.
I'm not good at keeping in contact with peoples on the internet. There. I said it. I won't trouble you with reasons or excuses, because the truth is that I just don't enjoy communicating over email, and I don't maintain any chat accounts outside of the dreaded Facebook.
give some examples that I like.
