DISCLAIMER: I don't friend people back automatically. If you're adding my LJ to your Friends List, drop me a comment and identify yourself!

I am currently rolling with the Just Like a Man LJ template.

Lived in many different places, currently in Portland
B.S. in Multimedia Design
Rabid photographer, designer, and general-purpose webmonkey
Obsessed wushu practitioner (5+ years experience)
Enjoys biking, cooking, games, hiking, movies, karaoke, creating things...

I'm a newly-thirty-something female who mainly just wants to explore, create, and enjoy life, and I'll try just about anything once. I train wushu like crazy, I cook whenever possible, and I get my creative juices flowing with design and photography. I love to sing, and I enjoy spending a healthy amount of time in the sun. (rather funny, seeing as I live in the rainy Northwest...)

I can get along with lots of people, as long as they're reasonably intelligent and aren't assholes. Typing like an intelligent person is also a plus, because I can be fairly anal-retentive about spelling and punctuation. I can sometimes be rather cranky about new people, but try not to hold it against me. I don't hate you, promise! ;)

You should probably read the journal, if you really want to know more. I am not generally a fan of labels, so it's hard for me to know when to apply them to myself. If you're bored enough that you decide to read the entire archive, I recommend you skip ahead to, say, June 2000 or so.

Because I like lists, I'll try to define myself in what may be oversimplified terms:

-- I'm a nerd/geek/dork, and I enjoy being this way.
-- I'm a pragmatist with optimistic tendencies. I am fairly logical, as a generality, but I can never lose all hope.
-- I'm a romantic. It may not always show, but I love very strongly and fiercely.
-- I'm smart. Not always well-spoken, especially since I never get enough sleep, but I'm certainly no dolt. I probably sound more intelligent in print.
-- I like films that tell a good story, I like music that breaks a rule or three, and I like writing that makes me think.
-- I love functional design. Abstract art makes me want to break things.
-- I am, in large part, Libertarian. The government is pretty broken, and I'd like to have it out of my life as much as possible. The two-party system can suck it.
-- I'm a cartoon. I have a very expressive face, and people keep saying that I should be a voice actor.

That is all.
