My self-summary
I'm here. I'm working, eventing, and trying to figure out what the next five years will look like-- with a clinging sense of despair even in light of incredible individuals doing life around me in so many wonderful ways.

I love creative people, waterfalls, cursing, the coast, dark lipstick, singing, and dirty chai... Always thinking, always moving, never without a project. Poly/Bi/Kinky. I'm kinda hard to catch on my best days, but actively seeking a girlfriend/new partner in crime.

The rain is my habitat. I am a muppety babybat goth kid, but growing into myself in a lot of ways. Headed back to school in the fall for comp sci. Meanwhile, working at a local non-profit and organizing conventions with my live-in partner of 2+ years.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, drinking coffee, criticizing religion, making music, watching people, rearranging my apartment, being a city mouse, reading, thinking critically, taking accidental naps, convention running, art, and having varying levels of success in keeping my brain occupied and energized.

Also, perpetually on OkC but never actually seeing anyone. I'd love to give it a shot.
I’m really good at
Singing. Cooking when hungry. Getting flustered at being interrupted.
The first things people usually notice about me
my collar, eyes, and quietness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

EAT a lot of sushi, thai, teriyaki, indian, mexican, and pub food (but I love to cook anyway)

READ a lot of young-adult-fiction and interesting nonfiction as well as college texts for college

WATCH things like youtube critics (That Guy With the Glasses, CinemaSnob, and Digibro being my current favorites), Avatar: The Last Airbender, ShiroBako, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Penny Dreadful, Trigun, Girls und Panzer, Sherlock, Marvel, Wer, Star Wars, Stranger Things, SAO.. the list grows slowly

LISTEN to podcasts, jazz, metal, darkwave, 80's goth, 90's pop and rock, and artists like: Jethro Tull, David Bowie, Hozier, Lianne la Havas, Fiona Apple, Eva Stone, Green Day, Amanda Palmer, Local genre artists (Nathaniel Johnstone Band, Good Company)

My most-played Pandora station is KMFDM, and the tuner in my car is set to 95.1 (NPR) 101.9 FM (KINK) or 97.1 (Charlie)

I am in a dark cabaret band where I sing harmony and lead vocals.
Six things I could never do without
coffee, mobility, chai, chocolate, self-awareness, love, and art (seven is a favorite number)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My various and ever-changing jobs, all my events, the way people interact, my household, what I need to be focusing on right now, how I'm going to spend the next month and how fascinating life is on the whole.

I enjoy science, psychology, people, food, sustainability concepts, music, science fiction, space, sex, locomotives, steampunk, horror, naturalism, leatherworking, artists that mean it, and being critical of the world around me while still functionally living in it. I'm not an expert on much; I'm still at a place in my life where I want to spend a lot of time listening and observing.

I don't have time for a ton of gaming even though I like it, I don't watch much (if any) TV - let alone binge watching, I like anime but have finished few, I'm not old enough to get into bars (so no, I can't go get a drink with you) and I don't smoke.

I am an Athiest, with pagan friends. I got my guts to sing and speak in a christian church, but I don't belong there anymore and am not interested in ever going back.

I am a convention addict and vendor, familiar with the festival crowd. I am a singer. I thoughtfully manage enthusaist events. I'm generally a submissive, but still new and exploring.

The universe doesn't owe you, or me, fuck-all-anything. I'm trying to learn that and be grateful for what I've got.

That said... I need a little softness in this world. A little adventure. I think we all do.
On a typical Friday night I am
probably sleeping or on my way to some event somewhere, depending on the season
You should message me if
I catch your eye. If you're interested in what I'm up to. If you'd like to talk awhile, or go on an adventure with me in the Portland area. I may message people I'd just like to hang with; just 'cause I'm looking for a date doesn't mean I'm single minded.

I don't do one-night-stands. I have a lot of things happening in my life. I'm not looking for couples per se, and I have a straight-white-boyfriend-in-his-thirties (who I spend most of my time with).
The two of us
