in the know

so you know

I'm an Indiginerd studying for my PhD and I have a stack of books for "when I have time," but we all know there's never enough time. I'm a self-taught photographer who makes people get naked in oceans, always take their jackets off in the dead of winter, and carry velvet chairs through rolling fields of wheat, and it's amazing. I believe in lust at first sight, that hickies are a physical form of "I love you," and that you can always text first. I'm working on two new poetry books, attempting to finish a thesis, and am always dreaming of the novel that I haven't started yet.

Basically, I'm living a life of stories and laughter, and it is good.
