This makes me wonder what I'm doing here. If you also find this
terrifying and hilarious, we're off to a good start.
What I’m doing with my life

Also, one time I threw a middle school themed dance party and when the "Tootsee Roll Remix" came on I did the butterfly so aggressively that I pulled two muscles. It was totally worth it.
You should message me if
Ideally, you're well-adjusted, you have your act together
professionally, you're kind, you're hilarious, you're consistent,
and you don't take yourself too seriously. Tall doesn't hurt,
And lastly, please be emotionally healthy! If you're not in pursuit
