My self-summary
**don't message me if you're homophobic or biphobic in any way, for real, i'm tired, just move on**

I'll be honest, I'm mostly looking for interesting new people to talk to, but wouldn't be averse to something more growing out of that.

in terms of fun personality junk, i go back and forth between an INFP and an ENFP. i'm a Pisces sun / Gemini moon / Taurus rising. my alignment is Chaotic Good. idk, message me if you can think of more.
What I’m doing with my life
I was at a Liberal arts college in Ohio for Psychology(I feel weird naming the college because it is so tiny?). I transferred there from UF and I really really was amazed at how much more I enjoyed it but I am taking some time off for a bit and working because the prospect of student loan debt makes me like, dysfunctionally anxious.

I'd say the biggest thing that drives me right now is hearing out as many people's personal narratives as I can, and using that to be as much of a positive addition to the world as I can?
I’m really good at
Writing "poetry", but I prefer Stephen Crane's idea to just call them lines. Abstractions. Synthesizing information about people.

Cleaning up to an obsessive amount one day, then trashing everything for a month. (It's only fun to clean things when you can actually see a difference.)

Connecting paradoxical things.

Staying quiet when it's not my thing to speak on. Absorbing stuff. I try to think before I speak, but I also appreciate when other people just say what's on their mind.

Counseling psychology was one of my favorite classes and I like knowing people's stories.
The first things people usually notice about me
I dunno! People smile at me a lot. I dunno if that means I look sad or I make them laugh. Either way, I'm glad they're happy! I like to be happy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson. Works by Neil Gaiman. Poems by Stephen Crane, ee cummings, and Pablo Neruda. Essays by George Orwell and Ray Bradbury. Douglas Adams, obviously. Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I also just really like to read webcomics. Especially Dinosaur Comics and Ryan North's whole posse. I also enjoy Surviving the World. Non-fiction like The Black Count, and travel lit like blue highways.

Cold Russian Novels are my mental aesthetic.

I am pretty sure The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Klay is the Great American Novel everyone's been looking for.

Update: I got kind of bored with books for a while. Junot Diaz and Haruki Murakami got me excited again.

I really really like comics. I like comics like hawkeye likes arrows.

Movies: I'm gonna miss important ones but what comes to mind: The Fall, CA:TWS, Indiana Jones, Tambien La Lluvia, White Frog, every Guillermo del Toro film, English Vinglish, Amelie, any political Gael Garcia Bernal film. Inside Out was incredible. Mad Max Fury Road blew my mind.

Music: MGMT. M83. Arcade Fire. Frank Ocean. Yeasayer. Vampire Weekend/Discovery. Kanye West. The soundtrack to Vanilla Sky and Hannah. Carefree girly pop and punk. Chvrches, Santogold, MIA, Janelle Monae. I tried to resist the lure of Lana del Rey but who am I kidding.

**please someone help me get One Day/Reckoning Song out of my head. I love it but it is such a depressing tune for your brain radio.**

Food: Tasty things! I'm vegetarian. Despite this, I really reaaaaally hate bunny food. I do not like "salads" esp. ones that solely consist of a limp piece of lettuce and maybe some cheese. I am not a rabbit.
The six things I could never do without
People, dear god. When I was a child I thought the best thing would be to be a hermit, to escape to a mountain and let it engulf me, like in Perfume. Since that's impossible, I've realized the thing that makes living in the world worth it is people, people and their stories and their histories and their hearts, as much as people can also bring about the worst parts of stories.

That's only one thing but tbh it's the most important
I spend a lot of time thinking about
People, and what success is. What I could see myself doing "successfully". People in relation to the search for equilibrium in nature. Interactions. How many things I wish I still knew. Identity and stuff. didn't there used to be a "the most private thing i'm willing to admit" section? because mine would probably be i'm starting to think i might be like a polyromantic asexual/demisexual. i don't know. who better to possibly be wrong in front of than strangers on the internet though, right?
You should message me if
you feel like chatting, you have something on your mind you've been wanting to riff on.

I'm currently working in a small town in PA and am starved of poc and queer people irl so feel free to message even if you live far away.

Note: Please say more than just Hi - I don't know how to carry a conversation past just that, and idk if you read any of this. If you're a jerk, you're just getting blocked. (i am this close to turning on the "i don't want to see or be seen by straight people" option.)

pleaaase don't message me if you're homophobic or biphobic or transphobic. just save both of our time and energy and move on.

Note 2: I am not on here 24/7. I might not reply right away, but I will reply at some point!
