Open-mindedness is a HUGE deal for me. I will give everything a fair shake and I love trying new stuff.
Acceptance over compromise; one thing I try to do with everyone I meet is try to make them feel comfortable and able to just be themselves and not have to worry about what I may think. It's awesome when it's works both ways, obviously.
I live in West Philly.
I love artistic expression, I love fun, I love intensity. Being serious all the time is garbage. So is not being serious ever.
Sharing some form of media with someone.
Choking down anxiety with experiences.
Hanging with friends as much as I can.
Trying to make someone laugh.
Starting a new project.
