What I’m doing with my life
I will work on filling all these out soon, I promise. It's a bit daunting.
I’m really good at
Drawing, listening, writing, thinking, making things.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
"The Golden Key" is perhaps my favorite book forever and ever. George MacDonald, Annie Dillard, W.G. Sebald, Kobayashi Issa, Chekov, Dostoyevsky, Proust, Mcsweeney's Quarterly, The Believer Magazine )

I don't watch much television.

Music: I am not limited by genre. Lately, it has been the Raveonettes, Arvo Part, Grouper, ambient, garage, and surf instrumentals.
The six things I could never do without
Hmm. Never is such a strong word. I consider all of these important, but have had to get along without each of them at one point or another in my life. Nevertheless, here goes:

Some daily solitude + silence.
Something to draw with, and on.
Trees.
A like-minded friend.
The possibility of something over the horizon.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I joined an online dating site. Ha.
