My self-summary
I'm short for my height but I appear taller when I knock (bonus points if you know what movie that's from). I make up for my vertical challenge with extra energy and passion. I love feminism and queer theory, a good book, and a good friend, whether its a dog, cat, or other fuzzy animal or person, an awesome song, and adrenaline.
Anything that is generally thought of as "not typical" I have probably done...I'll do anything risky as long as I have a strong belay partner! I am an REI product tester so I like to run around and push the limits.
I have a food dehydrator, everything I need for wilderness survival, my own garden, and books on foraging. I would like to one day live totally off the grid!
I am in a committed polyamorous relationship. This means I have a boyfriend who has a girlfriend. I have found myself in a wonderful relationship here in CH in addition to my other boyfriend so I am primarily looking for friends. I'm a great friend!!
I am new to Chapel Hill and so I am looking for new friends, people to hang out, people to teach me something or challenge me intellectually, people who want to go and do things...I had to leave all my people in Charlotte so I could come work in Chapel Hill, which means lots of Skype dates and searching for new friends. If you spend a lot of time uploading selfies to various social media sites we probably won't be friends. Also if you use too much hair gel or wear those sports ball caps that are still in perfect condition with the extremely flat brim and the sticker still on....yeah. We won't be friends.
I have a Masters degree in Public Health and Women's and Gender Studies. My work is clinical research. I talk about these things a lot.
I am a recreational paramedic (part time, volunteer) and so I tend to refer to those experiences a lot as well. And I tend to diagnose people and search for good veins upon immediate meeting. If I ask you to open your mouth, I'm just checking your mallenpoti.
What I’m doing with my life
Working my big girl job and trying to be an adult (again). Making my own medicine and researching feminist theory for fun. Dog-ilates. Canoeing. Generally living moment to moment with no structured plan. Reading in bars. Challenging normative patriarchal ideals. You know, the usual!
I’m really good at
Tying knots, inventing recipes (that are edible and delicious), growing flowers, making those flowers into tea, being outrageous, cutting my own hair, and generally not giving a fuck :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told its my eyes. But I think it's the tattoos
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love books and music...I actually don't have "TV". I am not huge into tv or movies but I enjoy cartoon reruns. Family guy, southpark, futurama, archer...it's like an addiction! I recently discovered Parks and Rec and if I work in government I am convinced I will be a red haired version of Leslie Kope. I got hooked on dr who so now I'm one of the doctor zombies now. I also LOLZ at portlandia
Six things I could never do without
My dogs
The outdoors! (Mainly, trees and bodies of water)
The SUN!!!!!
Colorful nail polish
Cool people
Books books books!
Human sexuality and the ability to ponder it in 25-page seminar papers
Freedom of speech and the right to assemble (and for that matter, the right to bear arms)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Queer theory and materialist feminism
Interventions and experiments for public health
Points of ingress and egress in each building I go into
The first thing I would pack if the apocalypse were to occur ...NOW!
On a typical Friday night I am
Having sleepovers!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I talk to my dogs like they are people and I am irrationally afraid of cockroaches
You should message me if
You can talk about social issues without telling me that god thinks I'm going to hell. You like hypothetical questions. You like hanging out in used book stores or dive bars. You don't remind me of a scary clown. You think you know the answer to my profile question. You actually want to have a friendship and not just try to get in my pants. You're not going to spend all your time with me buried in your smartphone. You like words. You don't type "u" for "you" or "there" for "their." You know who John Prine is.

If you are Jason, Richard, or Cassie: I love you!!!!!!!!!!!
The two of us
