My self-summary
Unapologetic nerd/wallflower/feminist killjoy

You've caught me at an interesting point in my life. I'm starting over, making some long-term goals happen, but unsure as ever about which direction I'm pointing in. I've spent my life moving around, never staying in one place for more than a few years, but I'm nearing the end of that cycle (hopefully).

I've been a lot of things in my life. A military brat, an almost marine biologist, a writer for a few old video game sites, a receptionist at a 24 animal hospital, and now happily directionless. I've realized over the years that big plans aren't for me. I've done a lot of things, and been good at many of them. There isn't one all-consuming love I have for any particular career or field. I'm happy as long as I've got people I care about and the time to spend with them.

In the meantime, I get by with a little help from my geek scene. I love powerful stories, whether they're from books, comics, movies, games, or friends, and I hope that, one day, some might come from me.
What I’m doing with my life
My dream is to be a writer living in the Pacific Northwest surrounded by the inspiring beauty of temperate rainforests and mountains. My reality has been a series of customer service-related jobs on the east coast that have all but sapped my creative spirit over the years. Which brings me to now, fresh out of a move from DC. I'm spending some long overdue time with my family, and regrouping before I make my final leap to Seattle sometime next year.

Until then, I'm taking in the beauty of the nearby mountains and trying new things. If you've got any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
I’m really good at
- Writing

- Eating

- Pretending I'm in a music video when listening to music I like

- Getting excited about new episodes of my shows.

- Pretending that I know what I'm talking about
The first things people usually notice about me
If I had to guess, it would be my quiet interest. It can take me a little bit of time to interact with new people, but once I do the layers of social anxiety tend to flake away.

I also have 5/8" gauges in my ears. Past that, I've heard that I smile with my eyes, which I think means I squint a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oh man, these lists always get out of hand...just ask and I'll be willing to share, but if I started listing things I wouldn't stop.

It's safe to assume if it involves comic book characters, progressive or classic science fiction, or anything generally considered nerdy, I'm into it.
Six things I could never do without
- Games, whether they're on a table, on a screen, or outside.
- Great food! I don't care what type, as long as it's got flavor and isn't made with pieces of animals.
- A creative outlet -- be it a word processor, a pad of drawing paper, editing software, or arts and crafts.
- Geeking out with people I care about.
- My cat, Rory Williams.
- The feeling you get when a great song washes over you and fills you with feels.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-Why nerd culture is so hostile toward everyone but straight white cis guys.

-How hostile the world can be, and what can be done about it.

-What kind of super hero I would be.

-Crazy future technology, for better or worse.

-What it would be like to do really cool martial arts moves to do mundane tasks, like folding laundry or cooking dinner.

On a typical Friday night I am
Since I'm new in town, I don't actually know anyone. This means I'm probably staying in, binge watching Netflix or Hulu, or playing a game I can lose myself in.

I'd love an excuse to go out and explore the Salt Lake City area.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I got my cat a hoodie, and he doesn't seem to mind wearing it.
You should message me if
You like shy guys!

You love playing board games and need an extra person to fill out the table.

You want to make my day (it's nice feeling noticed).

You want to talk about writing.

Bonus points if you want to nerd out with me over comics, games, and/or SCIENCE.
The two of us
