My self-summary
I really like otters. This tumblr encapsulates about 90% of my thoughts and beliefs: I also like eating meat (not from otters) and drinking delicious beers. I would describe myself as quietly effusive. I'm a good singer and a really terrible dancer. Most of my joy comes from music and I may get too excited about it, but that's because music is what makes life worth living. I own many books. I am exceedingly nerdy. I care about children's rights (among other good things). I believe the worst thing you can do is treat someone as if they have lost or forfeited their humanity. I was an English major in college and I don't give a shit about improper grammar.

Do yourself a favor and take 4 and a half minutes to listen to this:
What I’m doing with my life
By day - I'm a legal aid lawyer. By night/weekend I'm a fiction reader, a chorister, a TV binger, and an accumulator of useless knowledge.
I’m really good at
Singing. Stockpiling useless knowledge. Watching many episodes of television shows in succession. Cards Against Humanity. Calling people on their bullshit. It's a good thing that these skills are relevant to my chosen profession.
The first things people usually notice about me
If you happen to be staring directly at my left ankle, it's probably the five inch scar from when I became part machine. If I'm listening to good music, it may be that I have an idiotic grin on my face and am tapping my thigh perhaps too noticeably while walking alone down the street. Also, I was recently told that I sort of curtsy sometimes when I'm being awkward..which you may be able to tell is rather frequently. I don't really know what that (the weird curtsy thing) is about - maybe I'm displaced in time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Now that I'm done with school (at least for now), I'm finally getting back into reading for pleasure! I read A Little Life in December and I still can't stop thinking about it. I just started the Discworld Novels and really like them so far. Some perennial favorites: Harry Potter, Tolkien, the Phantom Tollbooth, the Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, Fun Home, Infinite Jest. I'm terrible at choosing favorites.

TV Shows: Buffy/Angel. Anything Bryan Fuller - Pushing Daisies, Wonderfalls, Dead Like Me, Hannibal - I am waiting with baited breath for the American Gods series. Post-election I've been calming myself by watching British comedy panel shows on Youtube (8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown is great). There are some awesome Netflix comedies lately - Lady Dynamite, Bojack Horseman, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I'm also really into Jane the Virgin.

Music: Chris Thile, Mountain Goats, Violent Femmes, Elvis Costello, Nick Drake, St. Vincent, the Magnetic Fields, the Kinks, Mozart, Andrew Bird, Laura Marling Jimi Hendrix, Manu Chao, the Velvet Underground, Neil Young, Johnny Flynn, Nirvana, Villagers, tenThing (Norwegian all-female 10 piece brass ensemble), the Talking Heads, Patrick Watson, Roomful of Teeth, Joni Mitchell, Patti Smith, Jack White. So sort of folk-y, with a mix of other good things.
Six things I could never do without
the choral public domain library. lactose tolerance. comfy dresses that make you look fashionable when you really just threw on one article of clothing and ran out the door. the Constitution and a judiciary that is vigilant in upholding it. that's pretty much it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
learning to play the accordion and moving to an obscure European city to be a street performer.
On a typical Friday night I am
It used to be studying but I am done with way too much school, so now hopefully it will be seeing live music, drinking beer, playing games, and generally being a young human.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an embarrassingly picky eater. I'm trying to expand my tastes, but you may laugh at me for having the palate of a Midwestern child. I am not a visually-oriented person and get bored almost immediately at art museums. I got my first drivers license at age 25. And apparently I have very little shame.
You should message me if
You think we have similar interests and could have some fun together, I guess? Unless you answered that you think flag burning is worse than book burning, because we are going to have some major problems. Especially message me if you want to hear live music and/or drink beer.

Bonus points if you get what my username is referencing.
The two of us
