My self-summary
In my heart, I know these things to be true,

1. comfort is the enemy.
2. it is sometimes rewarding, or at least
worthwhile, to cozy up with your enemies over supper.
3. extremism is a.) largely harmful to the cause. b.) fun.
4. act from the heart.
5. the best defense is artful deflection.
6. neck rubs are nice, but stretching is much more effective.
7. you are not a good person just because you're less bad than bad people.
8. struggling. learn to love it.
it might not be what's good about life, but it's what's life about life.
9. you won't always be young, so appreciate the crap out of it
while you can.
10. mediocrity will not do.

I can get *deeply* into relaxing.

I won't go as far as saying I don't have issues, but I do a pretty good job of keeping them beaten into submission.

INFP, fwiw.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm not opposed to meeting someone amazing and seeing where that goes, but I'm not that social and meeting new people burns me out right quick.
Most of my network has scattered to the wind over the last few years, and I could definitely use more feminine-leaning people in my life

book craft
admiring animals
random crafts
I’m really good at
crafty/handsy things, very tedious acts, making breakfast at any time of day, using what's around, shape-shifting, seeing faces in everything ( + ruining perfectly splendid things for myself and others because of it), inconsistent capitalization, pegging, parallel parking, hyperbole, not swearing around children, being critical without being mean, extracting blackheads, making potentially dicey situations sound like wholesome fun, giving practical advice, being inexplicably well liked by animals, tricking shrimps with my camouflage, and waving at the sky with my wide lovely eyes.
The first things people usually notice about me
1. my wide, childish face
2. that I am enthusiastically acting like an idiot to entertain an animal.
3. the hummm of my bees.

5. lush plant life

6. expression
I spend a lot of time thinking about

On a typical Friday night I am
Figuring out how to spend that Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll tell you all my secrets, but I'll lie about my past.
You should message me if
you're a compassionate weirdo who's not not married to the idea of a "normal relationship". you question everything and hone your ability to hear answers-- especially ones you don't like. you can express emotions and realize the only person responsible for your actions is you. you are somewhere on the queer spectrum.

Please don't message me about pegging unless you want advice. I'm not interested in making your fantasies come true unless I'm already super into you.

Tittle; A tittle is a small distinguishing mark, such as a diacritic or the dot over an i.

It first appeared in Latin manuscripts in the 11th century, to distinguish the letter i from strokes of nearby letters. Although originally a larger mark, it was reduced to a dot when Roman-style typefaces were introduced.

The only place a modern reader is apt to confront this word is in a Bible verse, Matthew 5:18 (NKJV): "For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.", or on this very OKCupid profile. The quotation uses them as an example of extremely minor details. The phrase "jot and tittle" indicates that every small detail has received attention.
