I think I'm pretty freaking awesome, as shown by my saucy smile in this .gif here.
I can be a fairly intense person. I can go off on random tangents about things and get a little too passionate about politics and philosophy. I can be too blunt and sometimes kill conversations with awkward, though I mean well. I love to discuss things. I can be extremely snarky and it tends to worsen with fatigue.
I can also be sort of hard to get to know at first, I've been told. If I like you and you are open with me I'll glom onto you like a barnacle of epic proportions. If you aren't that open with me, I might seem standoffish. Really, though, I'm just oblivious, or even shy (shocking!) I get lost in my own head occasionally. I have too much energy for my own good. I'm constantly moving and creating; if I sit still too long I start to slowly go insane (unless I have a good book in my hands).
I'm absolutely in love with all of these topics and will squee if you love to talk about them too: Dystopian films/novels, The Manhattan Project, any 20th century war but especially Vietnam, Henry VIII, Capoeira, Martial Arts of all kinds, Mushrooms (not of the psylocybin variety), 'Pataphysics, Drawing, Space Westerns, German, Japanese, Russian, Portuguese, Anthropology, Corsets, Dubstep, Constitutional History, Politics, Economics, Costuming, the War of the Roses, cooking, baking, patterning. I'm quite kinky. I am a switch with a specific kind of person but tend to usually be submissive. I am GGG.
I feel that people these days are not happy enough for what they have. Being happy is as simple, and as difficult, as deciding to be happy and I've decided to be happy in life. It's a constant struggle, but a worthwhile one. I want to meet other people who are also happy. I like being goofy and ridiculous. Really, really ridiculous. The only way to get through life is to have a sense of humor. Enjoy the process, not the result. I'll be reteaching myself this forever.
I currently reside an hour and a half north of Dallas, so driving while singing at the top of my lungs takes up a larger chunk of time than I'd like. Having been in Chicago for the better part of the last five years I'd forgotten what a pain in the ass it is to drive for an hour and half to get anywhere interesting.
As far as fun activities I spend much of my time dancing my ass off to wicked, whompy dubstep, trying to find electronic music shows in the DFW area, working out and doing yoga, trying to find somewhere to play capoeira, hanging out at the dungeon, hanging out at the Open Stage, coming up with new clothing designs, reteaching myself piano, singing karaoke at Sharky's on Thursdays, and sewing, sewing, sewing.
Who I'd like to meet:
You are a quirky nerd, addicted to movement and learning, incapable of sitting still either physically or mentally, who loves to kick ass and take names. My ideal physical type is a tall, thin guy with long, dark hair ala Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds. However, I'm perfectly open to other types.
You know how to spell and use proper grammar. Please, for the love of all things holy, don't write you as u. Don't mix up your and you're, or their, they're, and there. Good grammar is a turn on for me.
You enjoy debating about politics/economics/philosophy over good beers for hours. Though I can't really drink right now, so I'd have water and you'd have beer.
You are fluent in sarcasm.
You like to dance to dubstep. You probably can't out dance me though.
You like to sing karaoke, or just sing (especially musicals) in general. Seriously, I need the Phantom to my Christine, the Roger to my Mimi, the Marius to my Eponine, the Christian to my Satine. Purely in a musical sense, of course, since all those tales are pretty damn tragic.
