My self-summary
Well, what can I tell you?

I suck at answering my phone but can talk in person til the cows come home. Everything I own is doodled on in Sharpie. I've been taking writing and painting classes (I tried the practical route to a career, and that didn't pan out, so now I'm doing what I love).

When I'm at work I get really into making perfect foam on this bone-dry cappuccino, concocting the perfect drink for that person who has no idea what they want. I whistle while I work. It annoys the shit out of my boss.

Sometimes I wise-crack and snark, use some ten-point vocab words. It will probably come up that I'm FTM (trans), that I call myself a writer, that I have no idea what I'm doing. And I might start singing a musical number for no particular reason. Just a heads-up.
What I’m doing with my life
If one more relative asks me why I'm still working at Starbucks or why I'm pursuing arts instead of the medical field, that relative is no longer getting coffee for Christmas. Yes, Nantie, I know it's impractical to paint and write stories. No, Nantie, I never pay the bills late. Nantie, leave me be, I'm an adult.
I’m really good at
Drawing. Writing. Getting lost and un-lost. Cooking mac and cheese. Googling. Listening, understanding, keeping secrets. Procrastinating. I suck at making doctor's appointments and dealing with bureaucracies and red tape. I need a leash or something.
The first things people usually notice about me
I smile with my whole face, and do a "twinkly Irish eyes" type thing. I find this embarrassing, but people insist it's adorable.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm restraining myself from filling your screen with a list of sixty-eight favorites. Books are one of my addictions. I like sci-fi, classics, ancient obscure volumes no one's checked out of the library since 1962. Even reference; I have four thesauri. Seriously.

I wish I liked sitcoms but don't really. But I have discovered an odd fondness of shows like Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, the Addams Family, and Star Trek, which I can binge for hours.

My Spotify on shuffle: 1. Soundgarden, 2. Ray Charles, 3. Once Upon a December in Russian, 4. Gorrilaz, 5. Adele, 6. Mumford & Sons, 7. Steam Powered Giraffe. I don't know what to tell you.
Six things I could never do without
I feel naked without a messenger bag with a notebook in it.
Cigarettes keep me nice, sad but true.
My most expensive possession is my bike, whose name is Rush. Rush is badass.
My phone contains the numbers and birthdays of all my family and friends stretching all the way back to like eighth grade, and is therefore irreplaceable. Or I guess the cloud is irreplaceable.
A sixth thing... let's go with showers, because it's socially acceptable to sing show tunes at the top of my lungs. Well, not the very top.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Weird people I see at bus stops. What, there's not a lot to do at bus stops.

The various possible meanings of the expression "direction in life."

What if Main Character was, like, a soldier in a massive secret space army about to invade some tiny planet beyond the Ghost Nebula and met Love Interest, only she's an enemy soldier and also asexual?

What is there to do tonight, and who can I drag along?
On a typical Friday night I am
Barring work, I love little adventures: accidentally walking in on after-hours dress rehearsals, finding bubble tea in a sketchy Chinese dive, camping, road trips to nowhere in particular. Weekends are how I remind myself I'm young, the world is huge, and people can be awesome. One of these days I'll figure out the best place for falafel in Buffalo.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll probably never get bottom surgery. How's that for TMI?
You should message me if
Aich. Blegh. Listen, I hate this section. Message me if you don't mind that most pop culture references go right over my head. Message me if you woke up with a weird countdown tattoo on the back of your neck and want help saving the planet. Message me if you're green or turquoise. Just message me, I don't bite.
The two of us
