My self-summary
Hello, I'm Shaina :)

Queer/cis & interested in meeting people of all genders.

I like to smile at people on the TTC, dance in strange places, wander without destinations, write poetry, snuggle animals, drink beer, and bake vegan chocolate chip cookies... alot.

Some things that are awesome:
-the smell of fresh laundry steam
-brushing your teeth outside
-virgin Shirley Temples, complete with cute little plastic umbrella
-having the bed made on top of you
-mixing batter with your bare hands
-Bohemian Rhapsody sing-a-longs
-pumpkin guts squishing between your fingers
-pretending to be a car on an empty road late at night
-drowning park visitors on Rollercoaster Tycoon
-peanut butter banana sandwiches with chocolate soymilk
-dancing naked in the rain
-Flintstones multivitamins no matter how old you are
-those moments when you're just in awe of how incredible and wonderful the world really is.

"Everything is a miracle. It is a miracle that one does not dissolve in one's bath like a lump of sugar." - Pablo Picasso
What I’m doing with my life
The dream is to own a bakery/cafe/bar type deal where everyone will read poetry, sing, dance, eat yummy stuff and just generally be awesome together. A happy space to escape the mundane.

In the meantime I am in the process of changing my major in university for the 3rd time and trying to get caught up on my mountain of reading. :)
I’m really good at
Not using my common sense, memorizing movie scripts, making faces and being silly in general, giving hugs.. and making vegan cookies.

I'm also terrible with directions... which could be interpreted as excellent at getting lost.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm very smiley.
I like colours.
Also, "I don't know why, I just felt comfortable telling you that..." is something that I hear a lot.

Six things I could never do without
-rain, to dance in
-human connections
-my cat, Godot
-beer? :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Body positivity. Intersectional feminism. Gender & sexuality. Privilege & oppression. The fuckedupness of everything. The goodness in people. Food. Food. Food. Tattoos. All the minor details and choices in my life that unknowingly led me right to where I am today. "How can I make myself stop thinking?"
On a typical Friday night I am
Snuggled up with my cat watching Bob's Burgers. On tumblr reading articles & looking at pictures of pretty people. Drinking beer and having deep talks with a close friend. Having some kind of adventure. Baking cookies and eating almost the whole batch. Or some variation or combination of those options.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't blow up balloons, wink, or roll an "R". I'm also scared of riding bikes.

I get immense amounts of satisfaction from making eye contact with passing strangers on the street.
You should message me if
You don't think feminism is a bad word. You feel strongly about body/sex-positivity. You are queer. You like Buffy the Vampire Slayer. You want to bake cookies. You want to meet my cat/have me meet your cat. You want to share poetry.
The two of us
