this is gonna sound really cheesy but its true: a sense of wonder, whimsy and awe
also spend alot of time thinking about the future, like where i want to be in five years. i guess i just feel like im on the verge of a decision that will have major repercussions for the course of my life, and naturally it's been occupying my mind. i also think alot about how i think too much about everything.
how we know what we know, how we know that we know what we know, the nature of reality, other diaphanous topics. sometimes it scares me, but i cant resist it.
how badly i wish that women naturally had facial hair and people had monkey feet.
i am unashamed of the fact that i love 90s alternative rock.
my socks almost never match. and i dont care.
all my heroes are weirdos ;D
im much more familiar with canadian landscape artists than the average american.
honestly i dont hold much back. unless i think it will be hurtful to someone.
also im kind of a music/food/everything snob. sorry. it's not something im particularly proud of. try not to take it personally :D
you should NOT MESSAGE ME IF all you have to say is 'hi, whats up?', 'hey, you seem cool/interesting, wanna chat?', or 'hey, you're hot!'. that is so bloody annoying, it just pisses me off. quit wasting space in my inbox!
also, you should NOT message me if you are SO SENSITIVE THAT YOU CANT HANDLE NOT GETTING A REPLY at all, even you if you write a decent message with real content and even if we do have stuff in common. if im not interested or not inspired to say anything, i just dont write guys back. or maybe im busy and dont have the time, and letters get lost in the in box. whatever. if you can't handle no reply, then dont risk your hurt feelings.
and no nude pictures. SERIOUSLY. just dont do it.
