My self-summary
I come in peace! -but also from Los Angeles and San Diego. Just graduated from UCSD (BS Computer Science). Just got up to Seattle/Kirkland from San Diego in August!

I like to think I'm rational, but I'm sure most irrational people would like to think they are too. I was president of the Secular Student Alliance at UCSD and a part of Sex Pop (the UCSD Sex Positivity organization) as well. I was also a member of FOOSH (the UCSD improvisation organization), and I'll be looking to find more improv-related fun in Seattle as soon as I get there!

I am non-negotiably polyamorous.
What I’m doing with my life
A lot of spreadsheets regarding my fiscal future and boring everyone while I talk about it.

I'm rather geeky, but I love to get out of my comfort zone as well.

Related note: Lindy Hop has both 6 and 8-count moves. This did not end well when I started, but I have since redeemed myself by taking classes! I'll be looking for the swing dance scene in Seattle as well.
I’m really good at
Home automation, my current obsession. Chances are, this is a good thing to ask me about in the first few messages. I'll definitely start raving about it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm very upfront about how I feel. I don't really hold things in at all. It's also kind of hard to make me mad at someone.

I can't just choose one, so I've linked some playlists!

(Mixed) When I'm feeling sassy.

(Sad Playlist) When I'm down.

Other notables:

The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"I will find this bug in my code... and I will end it in the most unpleasant way."

In all honesty, this really is a lot of my life. I'm an absolute fanatic when it comes to programming. It's like an art-form that few people can truly appreciate, and I love sharing it with others.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably playing a video game or going exploring. I love camping. I love parties.

Or actively suppressing the proletariat, if you talk to my socialist friends who disagree with my left-leaning Libertarian philosophies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I grew my hair out for a year and a half to donate it to cancer patients. ...It is still in a box on my shelf. ...I'm a terrible person.

(Also because I found out Locks of Love has disproportionate administrative costs relative to their other output as a charity and I'm trying to figure out how to send it to Beautiful Lengths, which is better about that.)

Okay, for more private things: BDSM is great. Kinks are great. I'm willing to try almost anything in the bedroom at least once. I'm more a fan of being dominant than submissive, but willing to do either.
You should message me if
Qualities I look for in a partner:

Honesty
Above all else. If I can't learn to love someone's faults, it's just not meant to be. Don't hide your faults. I won't hide mine.

Passion
I want to find someone with a passion for life and a passion for something in life. Not something that you're good at, necessarily, but something that you are willing to donate a large portion of your life to and love every minute of it.

Love
Not just loving of a partner, but love for mankind in general.

A willingness to change oneself for the better
I'm not the same person I was a decade ago, a year ago, or even a month ago. I'm trying to change myself in many ways. Even now, I know that I have a lot of 'soul-searching' to do.

If you didn't feel like this was overly-sentimental, send me a message!
