exquisite messiness

the (non linear) trajectory of a beautiful, messy life

Sometimes impaired, geeky,queer, binary smashing, semi hippie femme woman.

I like to befriend new LJ folks who are into dialogue and communication that is mutually respectful. If you don't agree with me, let's talk about it. Let's have a discussion about different ways of thinking and being in the world. There is enough drama and judgment in this world and I don't engage with it.

The content of my blog celebrates the messy nature of life - blogging about everything from the so-called mundane aspects of life to political rants. I used to hate writing because it was constructed as something I wasn't 'capable of' but now I write as much as I can and it's a healing outlet. Since I wasn't taught properly as a child, sometimes I have atrocious grammar and syntax. Older and wiser, now I like to deconstruct and problematize teaching methods that privilege students who appear to be more ‘able' and exclude those who appear to be 'unable.'
