My self-summary
I'm a grad student at Southern Illinois working toward a master's degree in communication studies. Living in an postmodern world and I am a surrealist girl. I'm skeptical of okcupid encounters as generally, but I try to have fun with them.

I'm not particularly likely to be a good match for you if things like "making money" or "making it big" are important to you. Financial security is unfortunately a necessity, but in general I'm not much for neoliberal rat-races. I also don't tend to like the whole "let's go on a date" way of doing things. Just talk to me like a regular person and maybe we can build up from there.

Feminist (as much as that term can be applied to men), supporter of racial justice, smash the wage gap (if we're still doing capitalism), lover of life, all the critertion that make a person a decent human being. If you're into hunting and you aren't living out in the woods I'll likely be disappointed in you.

What I’m doing with my life
Working on my thesis. Trying to get back into the dating scene-ish
Looking into things like performance studies, phenomenology, intersectionality, alternative sexual identities, existentialism, posthumanism. If any of that sounds interesting hit me up. If it doesn't sound interesting that's okay too. You're not a bad person for not liking exactly what I like.
I’m really good at
I wrote a poem once. I can run to the top of a mountain and back in under three weeks. I am very talented. I'm good at getting stuck in airports. I can touch my toes. I am a limber specimen. I have perfect stitch. I can make an airplane out of a cardboard box, chewed up gum and dreams.
The first things people usually notice about me
My skills at scat-singing. That or whatever they perceive. Also they sometimes see the thousands of magazine pages covered in cat pictures I keep pasted to my chest at all times.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Brave New World, Sandman, Song of Solomon, Oryx & Crake, House of Leaves, A Song of Ice and Fire, The Handmaid's Tale, Kafka on the Shore, Travels in Hyperreality, The Brothers Karamazov, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, The Absence of Myth, Naked Lunch, Speaking into the Air, Philip K. Dick

Movies: I am more pretentious than you.

Shows: DS9, American Horror Story, Twin Peaks, The X-Files, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Steven Universe, The Prisoner, The Twilight Zone

Music: little bit of Leonard Cohen, CocoRosie, Daft Punk, Orbital, Animal Collective, Dan Deacon, Brian Eno, Akira Yamaoka, Halloweener Lockwood

Food: In general I'm fine with most foods, I try to avoid red meat when possible, and foods with a mushy texture bother me (applesauce, mashed potatoes, etc.)
The six things I could never do without

Gnostical turpitude
mind-alteration
doing
platitudes
seaweed
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how much time I spend thinking about etc.

How anyone would dare do anything but abandon their car at a red light at 2 AM.

Where I'll travel to next.

Thesis writing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Theatering. Drinking. Arting. Thinking. poetics. Trying to elongate my hands for a perfect Rachmaninoff costume.
You should message me if
Anything here resonates with you, if you'd like to get to know me or ask any questions about the contents of my profile. If you'd like to meet up and talk in person, if you have an interest in performance art, discussing feminism, or any of that good social justice. If you want to believe. If you don't want to believe. If you want to argue about something, if you're bored, If you want to think up how to change OKCupid. If you want to think up how to change the world (and do it), if you want to jam, pretty much anything except proselytizing.
