My self-summary
***
Update:I am staying in Laguna Beach for 5 weeks and I can't find a vegan-friendly bagel anywhere. Help me.

I can't see who likes me, so you're going to have to message.

Passionately progressive. Happily child-free. Science nerd. xVx. Social justice-orientated agitator interested in meeting people to share experiences, knowledge, downtime and potentially cuddles (platonic or otherwise).

I can usually be found at my local pay-as-you-feel cafe at lunchtime on Sundays for momos before heading off to visit asylum seekers held in detention.
What I’m doing with my life
I work, volunteer, cook, eat, swim, lift weights, sleep, write and play a little. My goal is to work part-time on social justice activism via writing and graphic design and spend the rest of my time volunteering.

I hang out with our two rescued bunnies a lot (see photo).
I’m really good at
...coming up with theories. In writing usually. At length.

...taking action when there is oppression, discrimination and exploitation that can be stopped.

...cooking. I've been told my tofu scramble is ok.

...watching movies/tv shows. I've had lots of practice.

...talking, if you get me on to a topic I have an opinion about.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a foreign accent (even though I've lived 94.8% of my life in so-called Australia).

That they've seen me at a protest before.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Madness, Bad Manners, Skatalites, The Selecter, The Slackers, The English Beat, Reel Big Fish, The Pietasters, Might Mighty Bosstones, Ben Folds/Five, TMBG, Regurgitator, Less Than Jake, Machine Gun Fellatio, Ok Go, NOFX, Propagandhi, Rise Against, Talking Heads, The Aquabats, The Beatles, The Dandy Warhols, PUSA.

I read science fiction and sometimes fantasy and detective novels as well as non-fiction books on science and nature.

Often watch science fiction, action (e.g. comics, dark comedy) and alternative movies and tv shows as well as not surprisingly science and nature documentaries. <3 Sagan and Attenborough. Red Dwarf, Firefly, Blackadder sort of tv.

Video games: I enjoy the classics, really well designed games like psychonauts, grim fandango, fallout. Can't stand shooters. Little time to play these days + don't have the gear.

I enjoy cooking and live on a relatively healthy nonhuman-animal-free diet as an expression of my vegan ethics. Favourite cuisines that I cook are Mexican, Thai, Indian and Japanese.
The six things I could never do without
Vegetables.
Op shops.
Activism.
Someone to talk to.
Hugs.
Ability to critically analyse systemic societal oppression and discrimination.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...thinking.
...food.
...why people do what they do.
...how to convince people to stop doing what they do when they're doing horrible things.
...how to further minimalise my environmental impact on the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Nothing too amazing, hanging out with housemates playing mario kart, out for dinner with friends or on the rare occasions at a gig or film screening.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If someone asks me a direct question I will not lie. So ask away ;) Just be warned I tend to answer -at length-.
You should message me if
...you are radically progressive, ethically minded, an activist/interested in activism, enjoy science or intellectual discussions then I'd love to chat online or meet up at a decent local cafe :) You gotta be kind too, no mean people!

...you are interested in visiting asylum seekers in immigration detention facilities.

I go to all the protests cause I'm trying to start an indie news group covering activism. Meet me at a protest?
