"It is terrible to have to ask for anything ever. We wish we were something that needed nothing, like paint. But even paint needs repainting." -Miranda July.
"I always thought the saddest feeling in life is when you're dancing in a really joyful way and then you hit your head on something." ~Lena Dunham
I am currently in a relationship, but I am looking for good friendships. Someone clever and funny with a good sense of humor. Someone who enjoys jokes about politics, pop culture, local readings, art all that fun stuff.
Please talk to me if...You nurture the fool in you & believe you will change the world. OR You've ever used the phrase "that's how I roll."..You like to read. You're interested in politics, know you probably need more information, but still want to talk about it. You have an opinion on anything, you are positive and don't take yourself too seriously. You have a fair amount of self awareness.
awkward in a charming way
Making people laugh, entertaining company & making people feel comfortable, or awkward depending on my mood. I love to paint & draw & good conversations with thoughful people.
