My self-summary
I like sparkly things and I'm a total cheapskate. My curse is that I can do almost any impression very well once and then can never replicate it. I'm like a cat - I'm likely to come off a bit aloof at first but I have sudden bursts of cuddly affection, and I like to knead furniture with my claws.

NB: I'm happily partnered with squarepeg85 so I'm not in the market for a primary partner.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in Communications at a university, scheming to run my own songwriters workshop, always saving up until I can travel again. In my spare time I'm dating everyone of marriageable age in Stardew Valley, hanging out with my rad baby nephew, and spending too much time on Twitter.
I’m really good at
I'm pretty good at singing and writing music; I have an advanced degree in songwriting, in fact, although these days I mostly just improvise songs about my butt and close every couplet with "bloo bloo bloo" when I can't think of a rhyme. I'm also a fair writer and copy-editor, if you're into that sort of thing. I make decent dad jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
Blue eyes and dark brown hair (when I bother/remember to dye it). I'm told it's a pretty striking combination. Or, if you've just heard me perform, "Whoa, your singing voice is really different from your speaking voice!"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favourite book is an ever-changing roster of whatever I've enjoyed recently. Right now, I can't stop thinking about The Left Hand of Darkness and The Soul of an Octopus.

A short list of movies that have made me ugly-cry: Moonlight, Lars and the Real Girl, Sixth Sense, Pokémon: The First Movie. I'd be sublimely happy if I could eat Morrocan, Ethiopian, Thai or Italian food every single day.

If I could have three musicians on a desert island, they would probably be Janelle Monae, Elliott Smith and Otis Redding. (I'd let them leave if they wanted to; they wouldn't be, like, trapped there.)

If you say somewhere in your profile that you listen to everything except for rap and country, I will scroll by without a shred of remorse.
Six things I could never do without
My family, my pals, a way of making music, trees and mountains, eggs, good conversation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ambition, activism, video games, the future, songwriting methodology and practice, intersectional feminism, afrofuturism. Also I fret about money a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm in a good mood: Drinking tea or cider, playing games (board, card, video), listening to podcasts, doing jumping jacks to music with my partner. If I'm in a bad mood: reading news articles and seething.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I misspelled a word on a Grade 2 spelling test, but the teacher misread my messy handwriting and gave me a point for the word. She even held up my test as an example for the rest of the class. To this day I haven't corrected her.
You should message me if
If you are more concerned with being kind than with being smart or cool. (It's ok if you're all three through)
