The six things I could never do without
I could do without this question for one
I spend a lot of time thinking about
music
absurdity
how are there even people
feedback loops
what I am going to do next
On a typical Friday night I am
out with my friends or staying in staring at electronic screens
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like to rock out to Andrew W.K. unironically
You should message me if
you're some combination smart, funny, and creative

EDIT: in a relationship now, not looking for anything
