- Things I am looking for in a person are:
I originally came to this website because I’m sure I’m somewhere under the asexual umbrella and I think it’s really cool that people are building sites and blogs based around asexuality. I’m not really looking for anything specifically, just a place to be aware of others who identify similarly, and now that I’m here I realize how cool some of these forum topics are and would love to stay on this site and see where it goes.
- About me
It’s impossible to learn what’s important about a person through one detailed description. A lot gets lost in translation between what I might believe about myself and what others see, and some of the best people are the most different from you, both in personality and in interests. I’m still trying to figure out exactly what it takes for people to click in friendship and intimate relationships, but I know at least for me it includes some level of empathy, acceptance, humor, and passion in something. It all starts from somewhere though, so here are some of my interests:
Television: Parks and Rec, Breaking Bad, Community, The Office, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, SNL (the era of women especially kicked ass), American Horror Story, and counting
Movies: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is my favorite movie and my favorite directors are Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, and the Coen brothers. Leaving it at that because I love movies too much over all to make a satisfying list.
Music: I also like music too much to make a satisfying list, but I’ll try to keep it short and basic. Some of my favorites are Circa Survive, Grizzly Bear, White Denim, Portugal. The Man, Radiohead, Modest Mouse, Fleet Foxes, Arctic Monkeys, and St. Vincent.
Literature: Most of the Modern and Post-Modern eras, as well as contemporary poetry and dystopian fiction. Anything that alters perception and is not necessarily a retreat from real life, but a different way of looking at the world and how things could be. Kurt Vonnegut, George Orwell, Ray Bradbury, Aldous Huxley, John Steinbeck, and F. Scott Fitzgerald are some of my favorite writers. Currently reading House of Leaves and will probably be doing so for the next six years, if anyone wants to journey that complex mess with me.
I’m really into art and nature and tend to blend the two together. As much as I love words, I don’t like the idea of putting them to art, because I don’t think it can be accurately described and shouldn’t be confined. Whether I’m making it or experiencing it from an outside perspective, I feel like it’s always building connections between me and the world, and I don’t think there’s anything more important.
Anyway, I have a tumblr account if anyone’s interested –especially anyone who felt me on that last bit on art and nature, because that’s really what this blog consists of.
