About Me

I’m Nic, short for Nicole. I am:

  • a graduate student in the health sciences. I work primarily with food, nutrition, social determinants of health, social justice. I study food, work in research on eating behavior, teach a cooking/budgeting/nutrition class, and then come home and cook every day.
  • shamelessly nerdy, especially about sci-fi and fantasy literature, board games, and tabletop RPGs. There are a few console and computer games I have a soft spot for, not enough to claim the title of “gamer”.
  • prone to overthinking everything. This comes with having a severe anxiety disorder, and only got worse after undergraduate work in philosophy.
  • ginger, and proud of it. A fair portion of my identity is tied up in my hair color, which really doesn’t make sense except that it kind of does.
  • a walking paradox.
  • active in my local kink community.

Oh, and I’m a shark: I do what I want.

“Three standard deviations?”

It was a bit of a joke. I deviate from cultural sexual norms in three major areas (I’m queer, nonmonogamous, and kinky). If we want to use the term correctly, then yes, a few of my sexual preferences probably fall outside 3SD (which would mean 99.73% of people do not share them).

Queer, poly, and kinky?

Yup. Let’s not confuse this with indecisive though.

Random trivia

  • I have a strong Southern accent when drunk or agitated.
  • I drink whiskey, neat, not served cold. There are no other drinks.
  • I am itching to get into hobby apiculture. Spouse is terrified of bees.
  • My favorite book is Moby Dick.
  • I am half-Jewish in terms of family history, cultural background, and belief.
  • I have a tattoo that reads “i like my body when it is with your”, from e e cummings.
  • I find hands and wrists intensely, distractingly erotic.

    And you do inspire me with your honesty really. And the idea that this kind of life is possible. I offer you a better suited award than the one I last offered – the very inspiring blogger award…http://writingthebody.wordpress.com/2013/01/30/very-inspiring-blogger-award/

      Aw, how sweet! I’m afraid I won’t be passing things on, for various reasons. If you want to see the relevant blogs that I appreciate, they’re on my blogroll. Thanks!

        Hi Nic, that is fine. I might still give them to you sometimes all the same…all in the personalities I guess! Take care!
