My self-summary
last reviewed 12/26/15


Most of my friends moved/are on break on the East Coast and for 6-12 more months I am committed to a job here, so I need to meet some chill peeps. I am frustrated with having friendships get weird and even end because of longstanding unreciprocated feelings, so please do not message me if you would be hoping for romance or sex in the longer term.

What I’m doing with my life

* School
* Scientific writing
* Cooking
* Remembering dates
* Losing my train of thought
* Trusting
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't look like my ID anymore because my hair got short and then "people" say they like it and I have to debate whether to tell them I hate it and it only happened because I tried to change the long hair and fucked it up.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: Brave New World, PiKHAL, Slaughterhouse Five, Jane Eyre, Ender's Game. How's that for a smorgasbord?

MOVIES: I don't watch a lot of movies but Immortal Beloved is the main one that stands up to time.

TV: House, Buffy, Firefly, Bill Nye, Star Trek (all of them except Enterprise), Breaking Bad.

NEWS: The Atlantic (print), The Young Turks (stream video)

MUSIC: We'll get along if you are in love with Beethoven and Conor Oberst. The Beatles, the entire 1991 grunge scene typified by Nirvana, Bjork, and Greydon Square also a plus.

FOOD: pasta, cheese, ice cream, Thai, Indian/Nepalese, all variants of Mediterranean
BEVERAGES: bittersweet coffee, green tea, red wine
The six things I could never do without
Something to learn
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How unaffordable and trafficky Portland has gotten in the last 5 years.
On a typical Friday night I am
Typical? I can't remember the last typical Friday I had. I've been dealing cards at holiday parties, my boyfriend graduated, there was Christmas, next is New Years....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing. Private admissions are for titillating potential dates. I'm not in that market.
You should message me if
you share some of my interests, life goals, or activities and want to try hanging out.
