My self-summary
****

I'm a radical free-thinker with a strong basis for how I should think and what I should spend time thinking about. Optimistic, kind, confident yet humble, and weird. Free-flowing, yet methodical (wavy?).

I'm in an awesome (non-monogamous) relationship with SuperSeaStar. We're looking for more friends who respect our affinity for living and loving like this, so please reach out!
What I’m doing with my life
Working toward my phd in philosophy at UCSB. This will be my 7th (and last!) year.

The better question: Why am I doing what I’m doing? I find it intellectually and emotionally and, ultimately, a platform to make a genuine impact on the world.

I’m liberal, especially when it comes to human rights issues, though I’m not really "into" politics (i.e. politics, as practiced, are a sham). What I am into: revolution of thought.

-------

Trying to meet people who love to love and know how to let go.

Meeting with SURJ so I can take direction for once.
I’m really good at
Being both reasonable and empathetic. There's room for both! I have a knack for helping others unravel their feelings and thoughts.

Crypt of the Necrodancer.

Sweating.

Calling people out when they say ridiculous things in such a way that they might learn from it.

Cutting through the bullshit that infects our everyday lives.
The first things people usually notice about me
My luscious locks.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
East of Eden, China, Il, Deadwood, Adaptation, The Graduate, Chance the Rapper, Fugazi, Charles Mingus, The Magnetic Fields, Pizza, Vietnamese Coffee, Rainbow Cookies
The six things I could never do without
The people I love
Art & Philosophy
Novelty
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Personal identity, what we know and how we know it, how to be a good person, how to help, art, people, emotions, patterns, self-reference, the kinds of things I should be thinking, the nature of intelligence, beauty, sex, political revolution, death, paradoxes, ways of thought, how to avoid and undermine rational manipulation, how to educate the masses, micro aggressions, intersectional feminism, and mental health.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably smoking weed. I can't really remember.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I recently publicly endorsed (in conversations with friends) a candidate I was not intending to vote for. (It wasn't Trump)
You should message me if
You want to smoke pot and play ping pong, rocket league, or twister.

...you were thinking about messaging me but then saw something in my profile that made you not want to message me (and let me know what it is)!

If you like to think, but not overthink.

You "like" me. I will respond!
