Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I don't give a fuck if you use your/you're or their/there in the
proper context or not.
honestly, i really just want to meet folks who want to doubledutch
but also if you want to avoid large urban areas, do sober things,
squat in the forest, have land i could come help out on and or
goats i could milk, want to go fishing and build rural community,
and dont mind me bringing along my sort of crazy dog everywhere i
id rather be dirty and smelly any day but i aint no hippie(although
who doesnt have a little hippie in em), i really appreciate folks
who are gramaticaly incorrect(notice the misspellings?), i despise
the exclusivity and elitism of academia most days but some days
think about going back to college, im trying to find a healthy
balance of cynicism and being posi to a point of just plain naive,
i think a lot about what it means to "grow up'" how social forces
have shaped us and how to break free from those ways of thinking, i
like to pretend i have an idea of what im doing by making grandiose
plans but im not even sure where ill end up tomorrow, i have no
health or dental insurance and dont know if ill ever pay back my
student loans, i dont read any of the books that typicaly get
assigned to you in english lit classes id rather be reading bad ass
queer authors and folks who are writing to challenge exisitng power
structures (basicaly everyone who usually gets left out of
highschool english classes), some days everything feels
overwhelming so ill just wait it out and spend the day crafting or
writing letters, i know that my reliance on dumpstered food is a
reliance on capitalism but dang trader joes got some good
id rather be called crazy and hangin out with a bunch of weirdos
any day...the queer kind..duh
