About Me

About Me

I personify body parts. Mostly my hands and feet but sometimes a whole arm or just a freckle. I feel very sorry for my left things because the world values all the skills they do not have. So i put my left mitten/sleeve/sock/shoe on first. OCD, an overactive imagination, an obsessive passion for justice and equality, idk.

I like things. For example: existentialism, French, poetry, urban studies, double espressos, asparagus, NPR, ducks, nuzzling, beers. Probably you. You seem pretty great already.

I live in Chicago when I’m not in CAR.

Favorite Quotes

“I’m not afraid to compete. It’s just the opposite. Don’t you see that? I’m afraid I WILL compete – that’s what scares me. Just because I’m so horribly conditioned to accept everybody else’s values…doesn’t make it right. I’m ashamed of it. I’m sick of it. I’m sick of not having the courage to be an absolute nobody.”
– Franny to Zooey in (wait for it) “Franny and Zooey,” by Salinger

I read some stuff by this homeless guy named Tom that, imho, was better than all of them. Disenfranchisement is a real bitch.
