I'm Neon. I'm 38, queer, and live just outside of Portland, OR.
I like the sun, fresh air, being silly, playing music, singing, making stuff, old video games, wandering my neighborhood, wearing as much eye blindingly bright colors and rainbows as possible, and attempting to speak languages I don't know very well. I also travel as much as I can and I love old books with awesome illustrations (esp. medical or nature). I'm obsessed with Disney theme parks and Tokyo (planning trip #4 for when it's safe).
My favorite arts and crafts are crochet, making zines, making miniatures, watercolor, making silly and weird collages, and UV resin. I also pretend I know how to sew.
I'm a nerd. I like science, geography, and history. I love languages and speak English (fluent), Spanish (okay), Japanese (learning, intermediate beginner), and I just stared teaching myself Polish. I also love trivia and puzzles (mostly paint-by-number/nongrams/griddlers and anything put out by Games magazine). I go to the library at least two-three times a week (well, when it's not a pandemic).
I mostly just listen to the same music I've liked since the '00s/'90s.
I like stuff that's loud - pop-punk, riot grrl, grunge, post-punk, emo...not metal so much though.
I also like J-pop and K-pop, but not really enough that I know any artists or anything. I put it on Spotify sometimes.
I also love Disney music, of course, but it usually makes me cry because I don't know when I'll be able to get back to a Disney park again!! :'(
I don't have a ton of time to read these days, and with all the shit in the world, my focus is...unreliable. I read in the bath sometimes. I like queer YA fiction the best, dystopian is good although a little close to home sometimes these days...
I also am going through a phase where I LOVE reading obnoxious business books, I don't even know, your guess is as good as mine as to why, LOL, but I've been reading Russell Brunson's Dotcom Secrets series and I CANNOT GET ENOUGH. WHY?!
Also also, watching the new Baby-Sitters Club made me want to re-read the old books, so I'm now on the hunt for them when I go thrifting. So far, I've only got #2.
I don't watch a ton of TV. I have Netflix and I watch a lot of YouTube. Some of my favorite shows are:
My favorite movies are queer stuff, documentaries, Studio Ghibli, cute things, Disney, cheesy Hallmark type stuff. Mostly things that are feel-good because the world is feel-bad.
I love so many characters! Here are some of them:
I'm pan-craftual...I love learning new crafts!
