Seems to me you've stumbled across the profile of a quirky artist with a dark sense of humor and a very strange, very strong love for slugs. Welcome! Please know that I will not hold back any of my weirdness, as I am searching for similarly weird people. I'm also prone to writing too much.
I love: *drawing, reading, exploring new places, expressing my inner child (come roll down a hill with me!), traveling, writing, climbing trees, hissing at onions, chasing quail, poking anemones, putting little parasols in my food, setting mummified gator feet on my coworkers' shoulders and measuring how loudly they scream, and a variety of other things.* c:
I like to think of myself as a genuinely nice person with a streak of horrible. I am absurdly friendly and I love making people happy, and at the same time I am not afraid to be a little ball of sass or let my terrible sense of humor take over. Despite my constant bouts of silliness, I love to have super deep conversations about anything and everything, and people with profound and inquisitive minds are extremely attractive to me.
I'm a bit of a nerd, so I'm always up for trying out a new anime or learning a new game. I adore pokemon and always will. Some of my friends are teaching me MTG so if you're a fan, I will play with you (Catacomb Slug is my spirit animal)~
And now, let's talk about you! Are you a creative soul who wants someone to draw with/write with/bounce ideas off of? Are you an adventurous type, someone who would enjoy rock climbing, hiking, camping, geocaching, or wandering off into the middle of nowhere? Or perhaps you're interested in building a pillow fort to watch a movie in after looking up a new recipe and attempting to master it (I'm an absolute failure at banana pudding and I regret nothing). Are you a fan of roller coasters in need of someone to scream with? Feel like having deep, philosophical conversations late into the night? Do you tend to fanboy/fangirl over your obsessions? Interested in exploring beaches in search of sea slugs? If most or all of these apply to you, then perhaps we should meet up!
If I can write and illustrate a children's book or graphic novel and subsequently get it published in my lifetime, I will have achieved a 20-year-long goal of mine. If I weren't such a terrible procrastinator, this goal would probably have been met by now ...
"Is that your natural eye color?"
-this question is a lot more entertaining if I'm wearing red contacts-
I've also been told by a lot of random people that I look like Arwen and it pleases me to no end.
I'm a huge fan of graphic novels as well. *Flight & Explorer anthologies, The Arrival, Koko Be Good, Drama, Anya's Ghost, Through the Woods, Amulet* If you have recommendations for webcomics, I'd love to hear them!
Movies: Chances are if I'm watching something, it's either animated or a horror movie. I'm biased against romantic comedies. *Pan's Labyrinth, The Orphanage, Garden State, Memoirs of a Geisha, Labyrinth, Scott Pilgrim VS the World, Cabin in the Woods, Miyazaki films, Pixar movies, Zootopia, The Secret of Kells, Song of the Sea, Paranorman, Coraline, Tangled, How to Train your Dragon 1&2* I also find it amusing how two romantic comedies made it onto the list.
TV: Unhealthy amounts of cartoons, snippets of anime here and there, and shows with a dark twist. *The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Face Off, Law & Order SVU, Criminal Minds, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, FMA, .hack//SIGN, Gravity Falls, Steven Universe, The Amazing World of Gumball, Bob's Burgers, Teen Titans, ATLA & LOK, 90s shows*
Music: Dance, symphonic rock, electronic, folk, Celtic, KPop, etc. Violins and Celtic flutes are soul food. *Faun, Lindsey Stirling, Pentatonix, Crooked Still, Within Temptation, Nightwish, Breaking Benjamin, Enya, Owl City, Sam Tsui, VIXX, the entire soundtrack to Ori and the Blind Forest, whatever I can get my hands on to nightcore*
Food: Cheese. Sour Cream. Whatever you can give me that I can put cheese and sour cream on. I also worked at Jamba Juice for two years and can make the most kickass smoothies.

*cheats and adds a 7th*
I am also a little bit of a furry. Have I scared you off yet? :P
-You are also a fucking weirdo
-You are artistic and would love to have a motivational partner
-You understand the wonders of terrible fanfiction
-You can enjoy someone's company by doing your own things together
-You want to visit the Exploratorium or rush off to Six Flags or have any number of other crazy adventures
-You can write something better than 'hey watsup'
I reply very selectively, so please don't take it personally if I don't respond--it doesn't mean you aren't interesting (unless you send something incredibly generic like 'lol hey,' in which case I will happily ignore you). Also, please don't message me if you aren't in your 20s.
