tea, good running shoes.

russian grammar, the sixty pages I have to write almost every quarter, getting published, how to stop writing platitudes, moving to Iceland, the flowers i want to grow, why I start Peace Corp applications and don't finish them, my future husband....
On a typical Friday night I am
still working, gym, out with friends, catching up on homework, or
just at home reading or practicing piano.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
Any of this sounds interesting
