About Me

Currently doing the undergrad thing and then shifting into a masters for social work. Practicing Lesbian, because practice is fun. Married all legal like to my wonderful wife because we wanted to pick a fight with the state (loopholes for fun and umm profit?). Working to dismantle things, fix things, and play with things. Both real and metaphorical. 🙂
