i'd written something totally opaque here, but really it's as simple as--- i'm returning from a few years of isolation and soul searching and looking to create a relationship with someone. ideally something deeper than a business relationship for a lemonade stand but as a rule i am definitely open vis-à-vis citric food service. i care a lot about philosophy and the social universe and i will gladly plunge-not-climb into whatever deleuzian k-hole you place me eye-level with. i think the relationship between aesthetics and politics is one of the most tireless intellectual bundles in this lil' world of ours and am hoping to write my dissertation--i'm just done with year 1 of, like, 20--on something à propos of it. i value emotional intelligence, intellectuality, curiosity, and humor. "The voice could save you."
What I’m doing with my life
rebuilding the shards of my disintegrated reality principle after stumbling upon the Berenstain Bears controversy (google "Mandela effect").
phd'ing at duke in cultural anthropology, splitting my time between north carolina, LA, and brazil.
scaling the submerged peaks of my intimate childhood connections. climbing into social interzones, shared consciousness. recovering life's forgotten arts. preparing to eventually migrate all of my okcupid belongings to okcomrade. virgo-libra cusp, libra moon, virgo rising. buying your hometown's last-remaining vintage playsuits and romper looqz. eating an obscene amount of peanut butter.

5. heat, color, earth
6. music, dance, mobility
