My self-summary
I'm left-handed.

Myers-Briggs thinks I'm an "INTP"

Doing gender is only fun when you mix and match.

Send me a message if you want to get to know me. Who I am from my perspective isn't necessarily the same as who I am from yours.
What I’m doing with my life
!grad school!
I’m really good at
questionable dance moves
The first things people usually notice about me
Lil B has this line in "The Age of Information" about how the internet has trained us to rapidly judge, classify and move on without looking too carefully at anything (or anyone). While I like the tools OkCupid provides to match us up with people who feel the same way about all kinds of things, I also wonder how many people the matching engine or I in my rush to classify filter out, and if we'd get along regardless of whether we see ourselves as "carefree" or "intense", drink for the taste or the effect, or think nuclear war might be exciting from the right perspective.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like making lists. It's more honest than being cryptic. This isn't the full-stop Truth, but it's something.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
how much more the vibe matters
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
you love to use your brain, not hide behind it

you advocate for your feelings

you love exercising agency and when those around you do the same
The two of us
