My self-summary
music student, mermaid, INFP
What I’m doing with my life
Nerding out. Working on my degree and preparing my music lessons and classes for when I start teaching for a living. At this point I give them really cheap and accept all kinds of trades to develop experience, and am getting some wonderful results!
I’m really good at
Singing, composing, writing, making pizza, baking bread, beating up my ukulele
The first things people usually notice about me
rainbow dreads (rattlesnake hair-wraps)
perplexing facial expressions (I have a perma-smirk from nerve damage... and a pretty cool facial scar from surgery)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
“This bowl of lukewarm tapioca represents my brain. I offer it in humble sacrifice. Bestow thy flickering light forever.” - Calvin (to the TV)

Breaking Bad, Family Guy, South Park, Bob's Burgers

Grunge, metal (especially gothic metal) ukuleles, classical, Qawwali, Yemenite
Primus, Nirvana, Frank Zappa, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Tom Waits.
Not much into jazz because it too often lacks a singable melody. I don't like much bluegrass or reggae because it's too happy. I'm a very happy person but it must be on my own terms, situations that attempt to force me to have a good time will only piss me off. I like violent, depressing music, like Chopin and Beethoven. Mozart is one exception, listening to it actually makes me very happy. Although I'm not into reggae I'm a huge fan of John Brown's Body, at least their older stuff with Kevin. And bluegrass that's in a minor key and not too fast sounds amazing, but it's rare.

Pizza, whiskey, titties & beer

"And there is no aspect, no facet, no moment of life that can't be improved with pizza." - Daria
The six things I could never do without
pizza, various instruments and lube
I spend a lot of time thinking about
creeps. why so many people are, why I am not, and how I can possibly distinguish myself from them. i hear about all the awful messages you have to deal with and i seriously can't understand why people think that shit's gonna get them anywhere except *maybe* with someone who doesn't actually appreciate them for who they are. because if what you're putting out is something fake... that's probably what you're gonna get back.

polyamory. i've never tried it, and i have to admit that i still don't really get it. my idea of a fulfilling relationship is one where two partners are fully committed to each other. so i'm trying to learn more about polyamory so i can better understand.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a teddy bear named Burt who sleeps with me.
I have *other* toys too ;)
You should message me if
I'm mostly looking for friends and stuff, I'm very independent and not necessarily seeking a serious romantic or sexual relationship at this point. But if the chemistry is there, something could develop of course. Musical activities are especially welcome, I'd love to start a new project and if you want to learn to sing or play anything I really wanna help!

Come sing karaoke with me! I could do it every night of the week, but it's more fun if I'm not going out by myself. I wanna start going to open mic nights too, I have a strong calling to investigate and help develop the local music scene.
