- I'm a vagabond at heart, and have always had an appetite for wanderlust. Travel is a regular part of my life, whether near or far.
- Borderline INFP (1% I, 1% F; I seem to bork the test EVERY TIME)
- Part-time writer, palmist, & ukulele aficionado
- Minimalist tendencies
- Pronouns are they/them
- Proud feminist & trans activist
Also a super-awkward, easily amused dork, which I suppose is my most defining characteristic. An example of this would be that I often flub over my words conversationally, or might want to play some silly word game with you on the bus, or sing because what you said reminded me of a song. I like to be silly, and tend to gravitate towards silly/dorky/awkward folk. If you're a silly/dorky/awkward folk, I want to hear from you! :D
I appreciate people/things/places far better than your average person, I wager. I suppose an apt way to explain me is the fact that I've always been damn excited about the universe and my life is an ongoing mission to indulge/explore in it as well as make sure that everyone else around me does the same.
By the by, I am long-term committed to two wonderful people: kittytristy & adamthealien. I'm also dating one other person (as of April 2017). I don't use the word "primary" personally, but I do live with the former, if you were wondering. Unmarried, and don't think I ever plan to. Mind: I will never enter into anything I do not feel like I have time for. These days, particularly since one of my relationships is a LDR at the moment, I do find that I have a bit of time for dating and may be interested an a LTR as well.
These days, I'm looking for a way to develop remote work to meet this end. I graduated with an associate's degree a couple years ago, and am studying palmistry in earnest. If I could read palms for the rest of my life, I think I'd be a very content person (they are endlessly fascinating to me!).
I'm also developing an adventure travel site exclusively for people who ride the bus these days, so that's getting a lot of my energy and enthusiasm, too.
Being easily impressed (I even have a tumblr for this: easilyimpressedhuman.tumblr.com)
Keeping myself busy
Keeping myself company
Being the "reluctant leader." Never jump at the chance, but I do inadvertently plan well and have no problem taking the reins.
Memorizing lyrics and melody (folks have dubbed me a musical encyclopedia)
Plotting out impromptu stories
Playing the ukulele
Giving massages (I actually do this rather compulsively around good friends)
I suppose people also quasi-immediately understand how generous I am. If I'm meeting someone for the first time and happen to be in a position where I can offer them something (food, advice, etc) I typically jump at the chance. Also very forward where praise is due. You're gorgeous, you're gonna hear it.

- Writing fiction, particularly when I have a really good idea and am depicting it well
- Long solitary walks
- Forests & heights
- Belting out a damn good song
- Workouts so intense that they leave me breathless
- Sexual release, in whatever shape or form I can get it
What I find most enjoyable *these* particular days includes playing the ukulele, exploring, hiking, improv with friends (my best friend and I have a long-term "game" running in which she and I act out a wide range of characters sailing together for a quest of gold), contributing to a long-term collaborative story-blog, studying a million palmistry books, learning the guitalele, designing decoupage projects, perfecting my bucket list, and learning new recipes.
