My self-summary
If you think Jeff Goldbum was sexy in Jurassic Park then maybe I too will be sexy.

I really value time spent listening to music, reading books, putting on plays, and doing dumb internet stuff. I guess I'm holding fiercely onto my menagerie of niche literature, heightened-language theater, and oddity-seeking internet treasure hunts, because such hedonism is all I've ever known, and soon I'll have to get a job and become a member of the general public.

Instant turn-offs: People who are self-proclaimed nerds, people who are vocally against feminism, people who shout memes at me

The six things I could never do without
Spending time alone is important, since that's what enables me to do more hanging out.

I start to feel weird after having spent a few days without listening to the music I like.

And I start to feel real grimy after a day or two without a shower.

Six feels arbitrary, so I'll leave it at three for now.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be an efficient undergrad. How to get off my parents' dole once I graduate. Dreaming about the fantasy of stage/voice acting for a living.
On a typical Friday night I am
While at school: doing radio theater.
While at home: having fun on INTERNET
You should message me if
You can deal with the possibility of me accidentally writing a lot and being generally ramble-y. Or, alternatively, not really knowing what to say and being brief.

Also, if you can watch something cheesy like Elfen Lied or Hellboy or Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula in total reverence and awe.
