My self-summary
A lot of my self-identity is wrapped up in my work for social justice, especially as it intersects with education. Probably more than is healthy.
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated from college a few years ago with a double-major in English Lit and Medieval Studies, because why not take classes in useless things while I can? I've been living in Denver since then, working with at-risk students. Sometimes they make me want to tear my hair out, and sometimes they can't read, and I often resort to drowning my frustrations in goods from the Mexican bakery down the street, but I could tell you something awesome about each and every one of them.

I'm also in an open relationship with the wonderful kilo523.
I’m really good at
Juggling, croquet, traveling alone, baking things in crusts, surprising people who think they have me figured out, spelling words out loud without even writing them down.

60-year-old women regularly tell me I'm great at Scottish country dancing. I can reel like nobody's business.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
If a book (or short story, as is often the case) is dark or haunting or skillfully leads me to a realization that I was not expecting, I will love it forever (anything by E.L. Doctorow, We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson). Margaret Atwood is hands-down my favorite author. She gave me a book once. The theme that pushes all of my buttons is the inherent tragedy of the passage of time.

Also: Catullus.

I love bad movies. Especially if they are set in the Middle Ages or have Transformers in them. Also, I don't think I'll ever get sick of V for Vendetta.

I've been watching Breaking Bad slowly but surely--I'm on Season 5 now--and I'm into Orange is the New Black.

I like to cook. Don't give me a bag of pita chips if you expect me to share.

Music: Banjos and harmonicas.
Six things I could never do without
coffee, books, my computer, friends, beer, a kitchen
I spend a lot of time thinking about
History, why we study history, gender, feminism, education, privilege
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If your answer to the question, "Would you date someone if they were overweight?" is "No, not if they were even a little overweight," I assume you are shallow.

Call me judgmental; everyone else does.
You should message me if
You want to dress up and go to Williams and Graham some evening.
The two of us
