On a typical Friday night I am
having a lot of fun in an impressive and nonironic way.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

You should message me if
you enjoy reading

you like the kinds of movies that provoke conversation, and you like those kinds of conversations

you make music (I play drums)

you were once out of control with, lets say, drugs, but now you're sort of over it
