I spend a lot of time working on and thinking about art. I really enjoy spending time with people who challenge me. I go through periods where I need to be by myself a lot. I like traveling but don't do it as often as I'd like. Cooking is a big part of my life. Keirsey tells me I'm an ENFP. I have bouts of insomnia that tend to result in a) art, or b) me watching Point Break AGAIN.
I tend to be a little reserved. I really enjoy and excel at conversation but can become uncomfortable when the focus is on me for too long. I'm straight-forward when it comes to my feelings and intentions, though, and the easiest way to know what I'm thinking is to ask.
I am a considerate and supportive person who also has a trouble-making streak. I value my independence and other peoples' as well. I'm not into the gender binary or gender roles. I'm into radical political/social theory. I love discussing ideas and I'm a good listener.
I enjoy open relationships when boundaries are explicit, communication is healthy, and oppressive dynamics are minimized. I dabble in queerdom. Romance with boys is tricky, though.
I'm REALLY funny. Really.
I've been working at a school for teens with autism but spent the first part of this school year home-schooling three boys in Hong Kong. I recently returned to Seattle and hope to continue working as an advocate for populations with special needs.
I'm writing a film script with my friend. Neither of us have done this before and it's a challenging exercise.
I often fall asleep watching videos of Neil Degrasse Tyson talking... about anything.
I would also like to create a tumblr full of all the terrible questions okcupid asks me.
Being a supportive friend
Keeping my life idiot-free
Being friends with cats
Thinking up terrible tattoo ideas
Reading is an important activity for me. I am currently reading Among the Thugs, by Bill Buford.
I have been perfecting my Tom Yum soup recipe.
Film is great and inspires the music I make a great deal. Some of my favorite directors are Harmony Korine, David Cronenberg, Lars Von Trier, Miranda July, and the Coen brothers. I really enjoy having a documentary about art or music on in the background while I'm cooking or working.
How I REALLY feel about 10 Things I Hate About You.
I like to go to shows and I play fair amount of them. I go through periods where I really prefer quality interactions over a party atmosphere, so I make a lot of time for intimate hangouts with friends. When the mood hits me, I'm all about over-the-top, debaucherous parties. Sometimes I just want to read or watch a movie.
If you like collaborating on creative projects.
If your profile has 3 to 8 pictures of your face taken from basically the exact same angle. You are clearly a very funny person.
RACISM, SEXISM, HOMO/TRANSPHOBIA = CLOWN SHOES. If you can't wrap your head around that, don't message me.
