So I’m the kind of person who talks to my dog like she’s a person, wears mismatched socks and sleeps on top of my bed so I don’t have to make it. I’m a passionate artist, liberal and feminist studying theatre. Loves of mine are anything purple, manatees, watching thunder storms, fiction novels and grilled asparagus.

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will find them gradually, without noticing it, and live along some distant day into the answer.” -Rainer Maria Rilke
“And remember the truth that once was spoken: to love another person is to see the face of God.”-Les Miserables
