It's funny how a little text box asking you to tell someone about yourself can make you go, "well, uh...?"

Here are the basics: Socially and biologically, I identify as female. I live in Boston at the moment, but not for long. I move to Urbana-Champaign this summer, and while I will miss the people I've found for myself here, and the food, I am ready to be back in the Midwest, where I grew up. I'll be attending the College of Law, there, with an interest in soft IP, but also First Amendment law.

I think of myself as a writer, but not an author. I'm maybe a bit Foucauldian with it? Somedays I think it's just my way of excusing doing what I love without wanting it to be part of a capitalist system. I'm not anti-capitalist. I'm just pro-passion. The two are supposed to work together, but I don't really believe they always do.

I have two rabbits, and I love them, but I really, really want a dog. I stop random people on the streets all the time and play with their dogs.

I struggle with depression. I'm open about this fact, both to friends and employers alike. It's hard--sometimes harder than being openly queer, which I strive to be as well. It's hard to know that there's something wrong with your brain and not let others see that as a failing. But it's caused people to be able to come to me and talk when they needed help, and I guess I need that more than I need to be seen as sane.

I try to be a good person. I keep in mind Sondheim's wisdom that "nice is different than good." I'm not always nice, although, I prefer to be, if possible. I'm not always honest, unless I feel that it's best. But I do my best to be kind, generous, open-minded and compassionate. Sometimes I fail, but I've often found that the characters I like best--and it is characters that have always driven me, in anything I've read or written or watched or discussed--are the ones who aren't always whom they wish to be. Someone I loved once told me that there was beauty in imperfection. I remind myself of that daily.
