My self-summary
My name is Jamie.

I am intense, honest and introverted. I love history, literature, philosophy and nature documentaries. I'm queer, a feminist ally, socialist, and atheist. I think I come off as super pretentious, but the only thing I'm actually insufferable about is music. And I keep it all tightly under wraps if I'm not sure about my company.

Music is the most important part of my life: I am the frontman of a garage punk band. It is over here: http://thearchelons.bandcamp.com

I am pretty insecure, and take some time to get close to people, but I'm a very loyal and reliable friend, once I get comfortable. And once I'm past a certain level of comfortable, I loooove to talk. Forever. About everything.

Lately I'm in a pretty great relationship with a pretty amazing person! We're both very progressive and open, so that isn't a bar to potential interest, but I AM pretty lazy, so I'm not super likely to want for more Serious Dating partners currently.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now, I'm trying the "being in a band" thing, which is pretty rewarding and fun. The main things I need in my life are music, coffee, video games, animals, and people to talk with about them, so it's all going pretty well.

I work at an Office Job, trying to maybe get some technical skills, and listen to lots of music, podcasts, and sometimes audiobooks.
I’m really good at
Spelling, musicology, public speaking
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair is no longer super-crazy. I guess you wouldn't notice that unless you knew me in the last year-ish...

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The List: whenever I use a new word for the first time, I get to add it to The List and my brain gives me a rush of endorphins. The List isn't a literal, real thing, but I feel like I can tell if I'm using a new word. It's pretty dorky.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing video games and music or taking in a show downtown.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really (like really) like giving head. I am intermittently very embarrassed about having noted this here, but I think prob people are often hoping for a Saucy admission here so. Whatever.
You should message me if
You love animals and science.
You'd like to meet up for coffee or go to a show.
You like a couple of bands I like... or at least wouldn't mind if I blathered about them to you.
You want to blather to me about a band. I like that too, and if it's not one I've heard of I get to listen to it for the first time!
