I've been told by my best friend that I'm intriguing because I can move between different worlds and personalities easily. I grew up in both the South and the North. I'm comfortable and enjoy hanging out with guys and girls. I was raised by academics and doctors but feel comfortable around most sorts of people. I'll often times play up being tiny and cute but also have a serious side. I love both science and humanities, though I have a better mind for the latter. I alternate between having tons of energy and taking life slowly. I know how to fit my manners and actions to the situation while still feeling authentic.
That said, there are some overarching themes to how I notice myself acting. I have an active mind- I think volumes and tend to experience emotions acutely. At the coop I lived in last year I was known for embracing my bad days as well as my good ready to feel, think, do, and reflect. I appreciate my solitude, but am engaged and affectionate when with other people. I'm a bit of a smart ass. When I know that the other person is in on the joke I can both give and take plenty of flak.
**I like to let relationships, whether they be platonic, romantic, sexual, or some combination of those three, take whatever form is most comfortable and desirable. This usually means that I practice ethical non mongomy. Ie I date/love/have sex with multiple people who all know about one another and I strive to have healthy relationships with all of them. Right now I'm in a long distance romantic friendship with someone on the East Coast, and living with someone I'm developing a partnership with in Denver.
*FAAB means female assigned at birth. Genderqueer is an umbrella term for people who's gender is nonbinary. "Not Your Mom's Trans 101" http://tranarchism.com/2010/11/26/not-your-moms-trans-101/ is a great resource for starting to learn about nonbinary identities. I'm a bit closed about my gender, so please don't ask me about it unless A. You're trans* too and you want to chat gender stuff B. You have specific questions about how to relate to me. My pgps for the record are she or they.
