I’m a college student currently taking a break from college (until January), and hopefully spending the summer working for an environmental group. I love poetry more than anything. I’m also into arts and crafts, music, photography, mary jane, doctor who, glitter nail polish, outer space, and my two pet mice.

I've got a decent sense of humor, and I've been told I'm intelligent.
Anxious, irrational, bad with commitment, a little bit cray-cray.

What I Like
Short version: everything Haruki Murakami has ever written is perfect. Also, Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, and Lolita by Nabokov.
I’m more into poetry and short fiction/essays than books, so…. poems!:
Anne Sextion: “Live”, “Said the Poet to the Analyst”, “The Lost Ingredient”, “Her Kind”, “The Starry Night”, “The Black Art”, “For the Year of the Insane”, “Wanting to Die”, “Cripples and Other Stories”, “Just Once”, “Us”
If you haven’t read The Waste Land by T.S. Eliot I will badger you until you do (also, of course, “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”, “Hollow Men”, “Four Quartets”, “Ash Wednesday”, “Gerontion”)
Others: “Parts Of An Argument” by Arda Collins; “The Girl Learns Forfeit” by Laurel Snyder; all of Tinderbox Lawn by Carol Guess; “The Paper Nautilus” by Marianne Moore…. augh there’s a lot more I don’t even know why I’m trying to list them all.

The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe – Jane Wagner
The Muppet Movie & Muppet Treasure Island
There are others but that’s all you really need to know. I would rather watch the Muppets than almost anything else ever, unless there are naked ladies somewhere.
