My self-summary
Attempting to figure out my place in the world. I like hearing the stories of how others managed to live through and be themselves, and discuss what can be done in order to give others the chance to. Hopefully stumbled upon, but not an offering of a particular enough flavor for those who know what they want.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently returned to Jacksonville and going about all the hubub of getting a life started, whatever that entails. Friends, working, etc.
I’m really good at
To be short, because I'm terrible at filling out self summaries, conversation. I would never stop if I had equally engaged company.

I'm also good at seeing the positive in things, I'm a total Pollyanna, and I'm dedicated to seeing the way things are and how they aren't as bad as we think they are. Not in things like justifying murder, but trying to fight against the pessimism that treats everything like it is. Trying to avoid the conversations about the things we hate. I try not to be too grating with it, I try to live as close to cynical positive as I can. I guess I'm just more a realist(unfortunately too many people use this term to mean 'asshole'), that I don't want to think everything is the worst, but also not be a sugary naive type that makes everyone's teeth hurt.

Holistic Anthropology in the the vain of Dirk Gently, the interconnectedness of events on a cause and effect basis with the knowledge of modern things such as germ theory's impact on biblical beliefs held in Leviticus in retrospect.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Yes, books, movies, shows, music, and food ARE my favorite things. I probably like it if it's one of those things, unless it's not a good one.

Currently watching/listening to a lot of British panel shows: QI, WILTY, WISIS, Unbelievable Truth, to name a few.

Current Current Show: Luther. It's freaking tense and I love evry minute. Plus Idris Elba and Paul McGann sharing a screen is enjoyable as hell.

Really been on a comedian kick, though mostly UK based: Henning Wehn, Reginald D Hunter, Mitchell and Webb, Phill Jupitus, Stephen Fry, Shappi Khorsandi, and many many others. Odds are I'll be spending most of my time watching the kinda blended general knowledge/comedy shows, which sadly the only ones I know of are British right now.
The six things I could never do without
Strength
Intelligence
Wisdom
Constitution
Dexterity
Charisma
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'll say that I spend a lot of time thinking, what about usually can only be determined when I'm thinking about it.

I guess a specific hobby is subtext reading, finding patterns in media that says more than they're saying. Looking for nuances of creator's beliefs that inspired them to make what they make and how it builds onto the real structure of human history of culture and invention. I get told "it's just a movie" a lot :/

I also think about queer culture and how much more grayscale and fluid sexual and gender identity is, and how to challenge the norms from my place in life. I'm not physically androgynous nor femme, so most of my time has to be spent figuring out how it all works on a level deeper than skin, though I know who I'll be seen as depending on who is looking at me.
On a typical Friday night I am

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I'll fake my accent when talking to strangers I'm likely never going to meet with again.
You should message me if
if you want to talk about the new episode of Cosmos or exchange 3DS friend codes for Animal Crossing

For real, just message me. I don't know who wrote this rule of dudes writing first or why we stick to it, resulting in people being spammed with lazy form letter introductions. Why set your expectations so high that you can't just say hello and make friends if you are interested for whatever reason. Plus I have such a higher esteem for people who actually say hi. Screw gender norms and expectations, we're not batting eyes at each other across the bar, shouldn't be be so hung up on our comfort zone that we never live our lives.
