I am shy, sensitive, and snarky
What I’m doing with my life
Workin' in archives/library, hanging out with friends, trying new restaurants, and Netflixin' like a boss.
I’m really good at
remembering things. Seriously my friends call/text/msg me regularly to ask me to remember inane details about all manner of things.
The first things people usually notice about me
how short I am.

Six things I could never do without
a good book
my text msg box (i rarely use it for actual phone calls)
people who 'get' me
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my job/career prospects, what i want my eventual *nice* apartment to look like, where i will travel to when i have the funds, what i find aesthetically pleasing in all matters.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a drink out with friends after work before retiring to my humble abode.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ha. I'm not sure. Maybe how much I long for companionship, romantic or otherwise.
You should message me if
you want to?
The two of us
