My self-summary
I talk a lot of shit for someone with no upper body strength.
What I’m doing with my life
When not having asthma attacks or listening to rad tunes, I spend most of my time rescuing bugs, making new dog friends, doing spoken word poetry and booking shows.

I'm studying Anthropology, but I'm taking a gap year to get focused and try to figure out a semi-solid lifeplan.
I’m really good at
Staring longingly into the distance.
Making toast.
Giving back/head scratches.
Befriending small animals.
Rapping (poorly and off-beat) along to Childish Gambino on road trips
Falling off of beds and couches in comically dramatic ways.
Making new friends~
Losing thumb wars. (I have tiny thumbs, I don't know why I keep getting into thumb wars, I'm just setting myself up for failure)
The first things people usually notice about me
My beautiful heart (((:
Wait what is it doing outside of my body dear god someone call a doctor or an ambulance or a soccer mom with a box of band-aids please
