My self-summary
I like smiling at strangers and dancing in grocery stores. I also like vocabulary and bad jokes.
What I’m doing with my life
Being hella queer and polyamorous and artsy and folding laundry and being relatively opinionated about social issues

Starting grad school next month! Damn.

I live in midtown in a studio complex that I often refer to as a commune, as a lot of my neighbors are friends of mine. We all work within a block of the apartments and spend probably way too much time together. You can also find me on other parts of the grid, sometimes performing songs or poetry, participating in some community event, or just gallivanting around :D
I’m really good at
Dog charming
Music making
Creepin
Last minute essay writing
Drunk cooking
Interpretive street dancing
Word things
Languages- I have studied many. But I'm getting rusty so let's have a language party!!! :()
The first things people usually notice about me
My willingness to make a fool of myself
My tattoos
My vocabulary
My flamboyant enthusiasm and optimism- It is like a child that, although fun at times, always manages to interrupt important things like "being suave" and "playing it cool".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There are so very many, but lately:

Augusten Burroughs, Haruki Murakami, Jonathan Safran Foer, Natsuo Kirino, Dennis Cooper, Janet Fitch, Margaret Atwood

I Heart Huckabees, Martyrs, Smoke Signals, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Audition

I binge watch SVU and pretend to be Dr. Huang

The Knife, St. Lucia, The Radio Dept, Aether, Oberst, Fever Ray, Bonobo, Beach House, Prefuse 73, Deerhoof, lots of jazzy lounge instrumental jams with beats, 90's rnb jamz

All of the food.
The six things I could never do without
Journal + Pen
Guitar
Buddies and generally rad humans
Open communication
My dog Simon who lives with my mom <3
... and a decent haircut

*honorable mention to Autostraddle.com
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Intersectional feminism.
"Wait... was that culturally appropriative? HMM."
New songs and poems I am writing, and my giant backlog of unrecorded material.
If people who work at food places resent when I order food to go but then end up eating all of it inside.
Dogs.
What various individuals might be like in bed.
Different vitamins and herbs and their health properties.
Cute people.
Why the heck my bearded dragon won't eat the bugs I give him but then runs around my house "hunting" for food.
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting drunk and crying about gender.

Just kidding. I don't cry about it much anymore.
