Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not very talkative with most people, but every once in a while
I find a person that I can just talk for hours about anything with.
I'm looking for that person. I like sarcastic humor and enjoy
intense (albeit fun and respectful) conversations about anything
from serious social problems to the fairness of reality tv
I don't go four wheeling or snowmobiling or hunting or fishing or
wear pink camouflage. Let's just get that out of the way now.
“Passion makes a person stop eating, sleeping, working, feeling at
peace. A lot of people are frightened because, when it appears, it
demolishes all the old things it finds in its path.
No one wants their life thrown into chaos. That is why a lot of
people keep that threat under control, and are somehow capable of
sustaining a house or a structure that is already rotten. They are
the engineers of the superseded.
Other people think exactly the opposite: they surrender themselves
without a second thought, hoping to find in passion the solutions
to all their problems. They make the other person responsible for
their happiness and blame them for their possible unhappiness. They
are either euphoric because something marvelous has happened or
depressed because something unexpected has just ruined
Keeping passion at bay or surrendering blindly to it - which of
these two attitudes is the least destructive?
I don't know.”
― Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently working at MSU as a secretary, and I love my

any day, just another day." -Ben Folds
“She didn’t want that sort of existence, but there was something so
attractive about the security of feeling like you had stopped
moving toward your life, and actually arrived. ” -J. Courtney
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
--Debate (when I care about the topic)
--Theater tech work (and I like spelling it 'theater' dammit)
--Volunteering. I volunteer enough hours a week to make it my full
time job. Read: I'm not lazy. I throw myself into volunteering for
projects I really believe in.
--Looking at situations from different perspectives

I eat what I like unapologetically. I'm not incredibly adventurous
in my food, but I recently tried sushi and really liked it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My brain simply cannot narrow the entire world down to six things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What is best.
"I wonder what it's like to be the type who doesn't burn. The kind
who 'fights the good fight,' not the kind you find
fisti-fuckin-cuffin in the dirt."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Processing the week. In all likelihood, I'm watching a movie and
having a drink alone. I'm new to town with zero friends nearby and
still getting on my feet financially, so I don't know anything
about where to go or what to do in Lansing. I'm looking for someone
to show me what there is, I guess. But in general, I use Friday
night to process and Saturday night to 'be adventurous'.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love ASMR.
I am 26 years old and I just this week learned how to make coffee.
