My self-summary
Opening up comes naturally for me when asked questions.

I'm a radical free-thinker with a strong basis for how I should think and act. Open-minded, 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.

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

I’m liberal, especially when it comes to human rights issues. Very about 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. 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.

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

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
No thanks! Too much information will make it much too easy for you to peg me.
You should message me if
friendship is important to you and you could use another friend :).
