My self-summary
Artist, goofball, and tea-addict.

I'm bubbly, excitable, and sarcastic. I can easily get lost in my own head, a good book, or just Wikipedia/tv tropes for hours on end. I love over analyzing media and pop culture. (You can chalk it up to art school). I enjoy over-heated intellectual debates, and mocking the pretenses of critical theory/art history while indulging in academia.

I spend most of my free time painting and sewing or creating in general. I'll be covered in powdered charcoal and acrylic gel one day, and meticulously crafting a deconstructed ball gown for the next meetup/convention a few days later.

I'm also a bit of a nerd... Doctor Who, anime, video games, steampunk, y'know, the pretty normal nerd stuff. I don't devote as much time/energy/money to fandom as I used to, but I still enjoy cons, fanfiction, and table top RPG's when the art isn't behaving itself and I feel like escaping the monotony that is the daily grind..
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to pull off the whole "adult" thing (bills, job, car, ect), but I don't think I'll ever grow out of building forts in the living room for Disney/children's movie marathons. :D

I have a fulltime, big girl job at a custom frame shop in springdale, and I'm being groomed for management.

Working on getting a portfolio together for an MFA. I have my sights set on the west coast, but I'm trying to find a program that feels like a good fit.
I’m really good at
Tripping over nothing, dropping things, and making sense of the absurd and nonsensical.

In all seriousness, I'm good at figuring out how to make things, learning new tools/techniques on the fly, and solving problems in a jam. I've picked up welding, carpentry, knitting, and tailoring over the last few years, and don't intend to stop learning new things that might be useful in the future.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look younger than I am.
I'm hella sarcastic.
If I'm not at work, I get a lot of compliments on my hair(wigs)/outfits/make up.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Chuck Palahniuk, Kurt Vonnegut and Neil Gaiman, along with most dystopic novels (Orwell, Atwood).

Movies: Anything Miyazaki, Pixar, or involving David Attenbouroug. Marvel's Cinamatic Universe is also pure awesome. I also love Bruce Cambell and Steve Murray, and Japanese horror movies. (RoboGeisha and Sharknado are somewhere on this list too)

TV: American Horror Story, Doctor Who, Adventure Time, Buffy, South Park, Once Upon a Time, Grimm, Archer, and random documentaries.

Music: Amanda Palmer, Lilly Allen, Lindsay Sterling, Temposhark, Blackmore's Night, and occasionally Kyari Pamyu Pamyu when I feel like annoying the shit out of everyone in the room and I just want brain candy.

Food: I will eat almost anything /once/. That being said, I haven't come across a ton of foods I actively dislike. Except pineapple on pizza. I will never understand the appeal of that.
Six things I could never do without
Sketchbooks, comfy shoes, tea, happy colors, and my friends

I acknowledge I'm dependent on my phone/internet, but sometimes I freak of chucking it into the river so I have more I'm to focus on what's actually in front of me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Are conspiracy theorists legit insane or are they onto something?

Why is it that nature takes on organic fractal patterns at all sizes, but humans are obsessed with straight lines and geometric order?

Why is art seen as an elitist construct for the 1%, when artists are usually the most irreverent, broke, and intoxicated people you'll ever meet?

Why do people keep insisting on linking actors and writers to fanfics? It's just going to give them more fodder to break fangirl's hearts.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually on friend's couch with a cheap beer or bottle of wine, watching stupid movies or playing video games.

If not that, then I'm probably painting or drawing or sewing or procrastinating doing those things on reddit or tumblr.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wrote erotica and self published on amazon for a few months when I was unemployed. I needed the cash and it amused me.
You should message me if
You want to talk and have more to say than "hi".
The two of us
