Please please please don’t tell me I’m attracting a mass of broken people to nurture and care for… oh god, please. I am not a nurturer. I can barely care for myself as it is. I can’t fix other people… I am broken. Do not come to me…

S. A random fact about myself

I hate feeling itchy tags in my clothes, so I meticulously remove them with tiny scissors, thread by thread. It makes me feel like a surgeon.

T. Age I get mistaken for

If anything, usually a bit younger than I am, so early 20s.

U. Where I want to be right now

Any of the following: Croatia, on a hammock in a lush forest reading a book or listening to soothing music, swinging on a swing, or swimming.
