My self-summary
When I was a child, I felt like a person, and also like the adults around me weren't treating me as if I was a person. I made a promise to myself that I would always remember that I was a person as a child, that other children are people too, and that this fact wouldn't change just because I would eventually grow up into an adult. As far as I can tell, I've kept this promise, and I hope to continue keeping it.
I’m really good at
Did you know that you don't have to answer the questions OKCupid tells you to answer in your profile?

When I was in college, I came across a time-lapse video on YouTube of a barbecue in Texas. Partway through the video, the Milky Way can be clearly seen arcing through the night sky. I was confused. I thought you needed a telescope to see the Milky Way. But nope: turns out the Milky Way is huge and easily visible in many parts of the world, and I'd just never seen it because of light pollution.

I felt like a character living in a science fiction dystopia. Maybe a future where everybody lives underground because the surface of the Earth is too radioactive. I toil in my underground drudgery day in and day out, going to underground school and eating underground food, until one day someone shows me an illegal video of the surface. In that video, they tell me, you can see something called the Sun, and it is the brightest thing.

I felt like something beautiful and natural had been stolen from me, so thoroughly that I never even knew it was there, and to my shame I still haven't gotten it back.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There's a thing that can happen called pica, where you can start craving, among other things, ice cubes or dirt. The reason turns out to be that you have an iron deficiency. Dirt at least can have some iron in it, but ice cubes have no nutrients at all, so the craving for ice cubes really, truly accomplishes nothing. It's only a sign that you desperately need something that you don't have.

Do you desperately need something that you don't have? What is it? Are you eating ice cubes? What about dirt?
