My self-summary
Writing profiles and self-summaries tends to inspire in me some over-indulgent weirdness. I'm just going to try and skip that.

I am sardonic, dramatic, and necessarily busy.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I only have a few things that I think of as private, and the fact that they are private means that I do not share them.
You should message me if
you feel like it.
