Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Kierkegaard's got me thinking this website is a bad idea.
I'm torn between worlds, pivoting between them in perpetuity.
I love academia, absurdity, art, culture, and all kinds of great
and strange things. Say hi. I'm much goofier than the tone this dry
profile takes on. Proximity and similarity are what make websites
like this worthwhille. It's an empirical fact about "liking"!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a cognitive science major, an eternal student, a morally sound
deviant, an abyss-starer, an explorer painting with strange colors
and singing in alien tones.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Property was thus appall’d,
That the self was not the same;
Single nature’s double name
Neither two nor one was call’d.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

Once in an social/academic/experiment/mythopoetic adventure, I was
initiated into a strange occult "secret society", and stayed for a
while because it was interesting to explore [post]modern
disenchantment and mind-muck in general and had fun, so I kicked it
for a while. You'd be surprised how disenchanted people really are
and how far mental gymnastics go. I wouldn't lie to you.
