My self-summary
i work too much. focus is all over the place. reviews usually exasperatedly point out my eyebrows, my soft-spokenness, my soft skin, & my dedication to beach house. i'm witchy & my makeup is low-maintenance sorceress but i dress like a 12-year-old boy who spends half his time playing with legos and half his time searching for bugs in the back yard. is there an aesthetic term based on that? soccer goth?

i'm single but in a semi-complicated situation and i want/need to be that way, so i'm decidedly not looking for romantic or exclusive situations. friends are chill. in my alone time i'm actively trying to be kinder to myself but also, frankly, i want some external validation & affection. i'm solitary but also social.

i don't get on here every day; if you're impatient or rude i'm gonna make fun of you on twitter with screenshots and it's gonna be hilarious.
What I’m doing with my life
i'm taking a break from triple major undergrad to roll sushi. or, more pointedly, to get money. my cat sleeps next to me in bed every night, sometimes under the covers.
I’m really good at
compassion. writing irrelevant essays. untying very small knots. making really pretty sushi. crying. hate-glances. smiling to myself really small.
The first things people usually notice about me
my eyebrows are actually perfect. they've been passed down via the women in my family for generations and i am, as it stands now, the last heir to them. funny in so many ways that such strong brows are supposed to indicate virility.

i really can't imagine anyone noticing anything else about me first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
didion, kundera, july, garcia marquez, pynchon, woolf, foer (i don't care if you think he is a trite sentimental disgrace to american literature), camus, grass, coetzee, bulgakov.

synecdoche, ny; heima; spirited away; nausicaa of the valley of the wind; magnolia; boogie nights; inherent vice; talladega nights; wanda; frances ha; orphée.

the x-files, trailer park boys, over the garden wall, madoka magica, sailor moon, samurai champloo.

beach house, washed out, porches, frankie cosmos, empress of, joanna newsom, made in heights, lorde, grimes, amiina, rhye, blood orange, the smiths, carly rae, charlie xcx. jojo's "leave (get out)" has been stuck in my head for 13 years.

cheerios, rice chex, crispix.
Six things I could never do without
black high-waisted jeans
selfies (fuck Off mr. lahey)
adderall + caffeine (both of which i hate a lot)
thirst traps
marshlands
moss piglets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
whether i am incredibly smart or just average-stupid.

myself.

why i hate my job so much.

whether or not there is anyone out there who would fit me.
On a typical Friday night I am
rolling sushi. wanting to dance. too tired to dance.

i probably don't want to dance with you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
♍️ sun, ♐️ moon, & ♓️ rising.

also i have narcolepsy? ayyy lmao ✌️👽

so i often fall away socially for stretches of time because socializing quickly saps what little energy i have.
You should message me if
beach house/jnew are some of your deities.

you're a v cute self-loathing dude who wants to kiss winona ryder's hair. i know i spelled her last name wrong in an earlier edit; i got confused sorry but at least i do know she's cher horowitz's sister.

you're a woman & you're perfect & you also believe many other women are perfect.

if you've already seen my twitter, message me. if you find my twitter via my okc, i'll be delightfully impressed. otherwise i'll tell you my twitter after i've gauged whether or not you can HANDLE IT. if you find my twitter via my tinder and then tell me about it here i will not be impressed. like at all.

don't sext me.
