letters on paper to each other just for fun, hit me up.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I don't do photography much anymore. I miss it.
Working at a tech startup. It's the best thing I've ever done. I've
never cared so much about what I was waking up and doing each day,
Being a cynic. Being a nerd, both professionally and as an amateur.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Taking pictures. Reading a lot. Trying to understand things. Being
rude in an endearing way, mostly. Sometimes not in an endearing
Sometimes forgetting people's pronouns and feeling really really

Defying Gender Stereotypes
Time spent alone
That's five. Too bad.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why it's hard to make money as an artist. Why people find

You don't give a fuck about Doctor Who.
You want to.
