It has been so long since I've actively used DW or anything that I'm not entirely sure how to make a sticky post, so... *crossing my fingers*

Current Life Situation: Married to a woman (Liz), step-mom to an awesome 9-year-old (Kiddo), not-mom to his year old half brother (Max), "full" mom to the baby in my belly (due in June, Kidlet). We live in St. Louis, Missouri in a condo (our old house literally burned down - we were going to live there for at least two years. Here's to changes in plans!) with three cats (Oren, the old man; and Blue and Zero the teens). I work a somewhat top-secret job in technology and publishing and am, I guess, the breadwinner for our little band. In my limited free time I listen to podcasts (technically, that's at work), watch television and movies (usually with my wife), and try to craft and write. We are a neuro-a-typical bunch, hovering around the autism spectrum. 

Current Fandom Situation: Not active as a writer or reader. I like to engage with reviews and discussions, however for the most part I'm avoiding super deep or angry discourse as it stresses me out. If something happens in a television show that I'm uncomfortable with, I'd rather just quit watching than yell about it.

Reading: I read all day for work, so extracurricular reading is difficult. I have somewhat recently read Ms. Marvel, and made starts on a few gritty female detective novels.

Watching (movies): I have a MASSIVE list of recs that I need to get to, but most of what I see are female-centric and fairly studio produced. Liz and I share an interest in horror, so that is most of what I've seen in the past year. 

Watching (television): Wynonna Earp, Queen Sugar, Westworld, Sweet/Vicious, Steven Universe, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (on season 1), Jessica Jones, Luke Cage (we haven't finished the season), Sense8, Degrassi (all but the newest season), Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash (season 3, with Kiddo), Orphan Black, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Superstore, UnReal, Underground, and probably more but some shows are off-season and I have a shitty memory.

Listening (music): Haley Bonar, Mitski, PVRIS, Elizabeth and the Catapult, Sia, Powers, Sleigh Bells, Grimes, Broods, Haim

Listening (podcasts): My Favorite Murder, The Dollop, How to Be a Girl, One Bad Mother, Politically Re-Active, Reply All, My Dad Wrote a Porno, Filmspotting and Filmspotting SVU, Code Switch, More Perfect, Invisibilia, Break Down, Lore, Hidden Brain, Radiolab, Criminal

Crafting: Crossstitch, helping Kiddo with school projects

How awesome was Wynonna Earp, omg? I went in expecting - I don't know, I wasn't expecting much, to be honest? - and I came out with pretty much exactly what I wanted Supernatural to be. So good! So ladies! *sighs happily*

I'm working through Westworld now - it's so intense, I have to take it slow, so I'm only 6 eps in - but, yeah. Dolores. MAEVE. <3

Is that an icon of Oren? He's so adorable and ridiculous.

Welcome back! I, too, am just getting back into DW after like 5 months of being away. Congrats on the bun in the oven. Yay!

Echoing the yay for Wynonna Earp (and the congrats for the baby in the belly for that matter!) also Sense8 and Orphan Black and a bunch else, that's an awesome little list of awesome. I haven't tried Westworld yet but I'm hearing good things here and there so I'm thinking about checking it out soon.

Edit: had to go re-copy the link but I just finally set up my introduction post from years back as a sticky myself, so if you wanna know how the faq entry for how to do so is

Glad to help! Yeah it's not super intuitive to find for me either, but it's so simple to actually do when you have an FAQ telling you where to put your sticky link.

this has become my approach to everything lately, I think.
