WHAT I DO:
--I love God and try to grow closer to Him every day.
--I love people. I like a good mix of A) big get-togethers with lots of buddies and party games, and B) small quality-time gatherings of very close friends.
--I write slam poetry, creative fiction, feminist articles, and lengthy political rants on Facebook.
--I geek out over the books and movies and music I love. See the appropriate section below for many many details.
--I work as a tutoring manager and teacher at a test prep company. Teaching is more than just a job, and I'm proud to define myself as a teacher.
WHAT I LIKE IN A MATCH:
--A Christian with a deep commitment to a personal relationship with God.
--A partner in crime who wants to build a great life WITH me--not FOR me.
--Desire to take physical intimacy slowly, including saving sex for marriage. I'm all about hugs and my cuddle power is over 9,000, but I'm not interested in casual sex.
--Confidence, self-awareness, and passion: no matter WHAT you're passionate about, passion makes everyone engaging and interesting to talk to.
--Geekiness can only help!

If this question is asking what my life is all about... I'm pursuing a deep relationship with God, with friends, and with ideas worth championing. I spend most of my non-work time at poetry slams, watching movies with friends, or getting not-last at pub trivia.
Movies: I'll watch a movie for any reason: comparing to the book, making fun of awful whitewashing casting choices, getting in a good two hours of James McAvoy fangirling. I gravitate toward fantasy, sci-fi, and smart action movies, and I love anything by Park Chan-Wook and Stanley Kubrick. Notable titles: Snowpiercer, Mad Max: Fury Road, Dr. Strangelove, Stalker, District 9, The Raid, Black Swan.
Shows: I watch a lot of cooking shows as background noise while I'm working on poems. The shows I really follow are Hannibal, Gravity Falls, Steven Universe, and Bob's Burgers. I'm a recovering anime nerd, but I still hold onto some favorites: Monster, Baccano!, Revolutionary Girl Utena, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
Musicians: Mostly classic/hard rock and heavy metal, with some indie thrown in. Notable artists: Metallica, Muse, The Sword, Owen Pallett, Florence + The Machine, The Mountain Goats, Jack White, The Black Keys.
Food: Italian and American usually take the cake, as does cake. I love to cook at home and explore new restaurants.
2. My phone. It houses my poem notes, my lifeline to my friends, and Google--the external harddrive of the modern mind.
3. My cat Furiosa. Bitey-ness and all.
4. Poetry slams, a full schedule of them.
5. The pork tenderloin sandwich at The Steeping Room.
6. Dresses. Classy enough for formal occasions but still lazy and comfy.
--Prowling I Luv Video like a sullen hoodie-wearing hipster
--Downtown at a concert, because Austin is the best
--You want to engage in a serious discussion about whether James Bond is a Time Lord or an honorific title that gets passed around among endlessly dying MI6 agents.
--You know a good pasta place.
--You want to combine all three!
