My self-summary
I'm not laid back, down-to-earth, and just your average person. I also do not like travelling, seeing live music or exploring the city for the most part. I think this rules out 95% of okcupid users. I do like Netflix and coffee though.

My new strategy is to be blunt and straight to the point, which is a pretty good indication of my personality tendencies anyway. I don't necessarily think the online medium is the best way for me to meet people, because personal chemistry and sense of humour are paramount to my interest in a sexual/romantic relationship, and I seem to be bad at judging that from online. Which leads to semi-awkward dates. But I'm pretty chatty so I usually do ok. Anyway, I still have hope that this could lead to something good or fun. Okcupid, why can't I quit you?
Having said that, if I don't actively like you, or am not interested, I'm not going to waste both of our time with casual dating and conversation.

I'm vegan and it's the best decision I ever made. If you're vegan too, that's awesome. If you're not, that's okay, I used to eat meat too. If you're willing to try eating something vegan on a date with me, I can work with that.

I'm a serious feminist, which means that I think our current gender system is bad for everyone, and I am actively working to challenge it. In a more practical sense, this means my goal in life is not to be pretty (please keep this in mind if you're considering sending me a message) , I don't wear make up, I don't think weight has any kind of bearing on morality, I'm super sex positive, and I think everyone should be allowed to love and/or fuck whomever and however they want, as long as it's all consensual.
What I’m doing with my life
I am in the midst of a career change (which sounds ridiculous, because I barely considered that I had a career before now). I am a high school teacher, but have left my teaching job because it was consuming my life and making me miserable, despite the things I loved about it. I am now an aspiring librarian, doing admin work in the meantime, and contemplating starting my own vegan home-cooked meal service. So far, despite the randomness, I'm feeling much better about my life :)
I’m really good at
being friends with cats, cooking, making awesome lesson plans, sarcastic comments, calling you on your shit, school, reading, and remembering lines from movies/shows.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Too many to choose, love Stephen King/Richard Bachman, Ender's Game, Calvin & Hobbes, & HP though.

Movies: "" but...I love Good Will Hunting, Rounders, The Day After Tomorrow (guilty pleasure), Jurassic Park, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, thrillers, The Silence of the Lambs, Toy Story, Moulin Rouge, Cabin in the Woods, The Boondock Saints...

Shows: Buffy and Angel, Supernatural, Sports Night, The West Wing, Grey's Anatomy (the early seasons), Friends, Glee

Music: Indie, folk, (classic) rock, country, alternative, pop - specifically I really like Wintersleep, Mumford and Sons, Ani Difranco, Queen, Miranda Lambert, Regina Spektor, Of Monsters and Men, etc. etc.

Food: bread, vegan sandwiches, vegan pad thai, love trying new things
Oh, and wraps. Why are they so tasty?
The six things I could never do without
1. My cats
2. My sister
3. Good books
4. A comfortable bed
5. Shower
6. Delicious food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- How to limit the harm we (and I) do in the world and how to balance that with self-care
- essay ideas that will probably never turn into essays
- Veganism
- Feminism
- teaching and lesson planning and cool stuff to talk about with my students
- What I'm going to cook this week
- Tattoo planning
- My future
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably drinking a casual beer or two, watching awesome tv, eating delicious but not too labour-intensive food...relaxing things.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask me. On that note I've kept some responses private due to the nature of my job. If they're important to you, ask, but don't be rude. No one wants that creepy-out-of-the-blue-intimate question from randomguy6969.
You should message me if
- you're a feminist, vegan, or both!
- you're both charming/witty and nerdy...but actually charming, think Sam from "Supernatural" not Andrew from "Buffy" (although he's a great character)
- You didn't answer "yes" to "Do you think women are obligated to shave their legs?", and also didn't answer fake no: "No: but it's gross if they don't"
