My self-summary
I am a vaguely humanoid shaped being who desires things and stuff. Mostly food and beer. Sometimes to ride my bike. Often to nap. Always coffee.

Art, gender and feminist lit/theory, science, and really bad puns are my current passions in life. The moment I can do them all at once, I will have achieved Ultimate Perfection (TM) and will have no more need for this puny mortal form.

They/them pronouns, please.

For some aggravating reason, OKC only lets me be interested in Men, Women, or Everyone; I've chosen "women" explicitly to dissuade cis men contacting me. If you're queer, and not a man, you're someone I'm interested in.

I'm currently in a non-monogamous relationship, so am open to dating but am probably more interested in friends for now.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been in Portland for about 8 months now, and couldn't love it more. I'm hoping to get into either Reed College or PSU next year to finish my Bachelor's (Fine Arts probably, depending on what programs are available/interest me).

I currently split my time between working part-time, drawing, painting, crocheting, writing, and staring into the abyss (Facebook). I've also recently picked up learning to design websites, but with all the free time I've left for myself I manage to read a bit for fun.
I’m really good at
stuff and things.

I have a problem where I get interesting in something, and then I learn a bit about it (usually over the course of a week), and it's a skill that I keep, sort of, but maybe never use again. Crocheting has been my longest-term hobby so far. I can crochet the f*ck out of a scarf.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my t-shirt. I like graphic tees, to an absurd degree.

The six things I could never do without
1. Caffeine
2. Peanut butter
3. Potatoes
4. The internet
5. My computer
5.5 Punctuation
6. Numbers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
feminism, gay rights, the interaction between my feminism and my queer identity, why people are shitlords, why I love peanut butter so much.
On a typical Friday night I am
on Facebook. Or working.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've read the entire Twilight series. Voluntarily.

I haven't been in a serious, long-term relationship for most of my adult life. I kind of want one.
You should message me if
...you find something grammatically offensive in my profile

...you have any good book/movie/comic/music/food recommendations

...you are a nerd, geek, or generally pro-science kind of person

...you want to chat (does this even need to be said? I mean, theoretically, this is a social networking site, so that means a great majority of the people on this site want to socialize, and chatting is usually an accepted part of socializing, so this may very well be redundant and I'm okay with that)
