My self-summary
Ok, it is time to face the music. I have been avoiding this part of the profile for a while because I absolutely think there is no way to actually sum me up, but I suppose that if you are intrigued by what I put out there, this might be helpful.

Some things that are unique about me:
- When I do not know something, I ask about it... knowledge is my sport of choice
- I have loveable "gripper-toes" that my mother says hold me to the earth when I feel unbalanced (I quite agree)
- I am a disability activist and feminist and am pretty excited about sharing that with the world!
- I punched a neighbor in the stomach when I was 7 because he teased me that I couldn't ride a bike... ever since then I have taken every dare someone ever thought I couldn't do and succeeded.
- I have vagina power!
- I am proud to have a disability

Some things that can honestly be quite annoying:
- I am a real-life Hermione Granger... I will tell you if I think you are wrong, but mostly I will be nice about it. When I say "Actually," you know I am disagreeing with you. But good news is that I allow room for argument and love to learn!
- Sometimes I take philosophical arguments too far for the sake of learning...
- I always seem to lose the remote and my phone... like now, for instance
- I am often forgetful about factual things
What I’m doing with my life
Hopefully, what I know about my future will be completely wrong because I have no idea what will happen yet. However, so far I plan to finish my AmeriCorps service in Bellingham and move to Colorado to pursue my Masters in Student Affairs in Higher Education. I hope to meet some pretty great people along the way, and if you are great, you should meet me! I want to know you!
I’m really good at
- Knitting
- Learning... everything
- Debating/Arguing (the only kind that matters)
- Philosophizing
- Engaging and interacting with people
- Wearing my heart on my sleeve
- Telling the truth, even if it hurts
- Making people smile and know they are wanted
- LOVING completely and deeply
- Developing the potential in others, even when they don't believe in themselves to begin with
- Experiencing ideas through many positions
- Asking questions!

Six things I could never do without
- Breath-- enough to gasp in wonderment
- Passion-- as much required to excite change
- Love-- just the amount to make us collide
- Truth-- the promise that we respect our stories
- Consciousness-- critical inner-dialogue that exposes you to your true self
- Challenge-- all I need to feel alive, capable, and wanting for people to hold me close
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Social inequality, social justice, love, education, accessibility, disability rights, dreams, future, my work, my friends, my family, philosophy, beliefs, fears, vulnerability, good intentions, mistakes, lies, truths, raw truths, love, impossible things
On a typical Friday night I am
Exhausted. Bag and coat thrown over the couch. Me, lying feet away, sunk into the couch and snuggled into a blanket as I escape my fatigue and enter the world of another-- mindless tele. About an hour later, I get up and cook dinner with my roommate, dropping ingredients and making a mess everywhere! We sit down, eat, watch the sun set over the bay from our deck, listen to music or watch shows, or most likely, talk into the wee hours. This is my friday night, my roommate night with my lovely friend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
- I have never been drunk (ask me why!)
- I am terrified of lady bugs (even though I was one in a play)
- When I was eight, I played a skunk in a school musical
- I don't have a driver's license
- I used to have metal screws in my legs
- I have never broken a bone (on purpose)

If you ask, I will answer (unless it is my address and phone number, I might not be that willing). But I love love love questions, especially those that make me think! I also like questions that make me embarrassed, or feel awkward, because that either means I am learning something, or I am discovering something about myself. Fascinating!
You should message me if
You want to be FRIENDS. I am in a loving relationship with an OKC find and am very happy. I still need good friends, and I want to meet new people. Message me if you have read my profile and want to get to know each other, as friends, girls and guys and everyone in between. :)
