my shadow grows taller along with my fears


About Passenger:

Hi.

You're supposed to write biographies in 3rd person POV, but I'm a rebel.

I'm your average girl, accompanied by a few quirks that you'll immediately become aware of upon meeting me (e.g. reciting movie lines word-for-word, pretending my story characters are real people, maintaining textual indecision about using "lol" or "haha", saying "also" too much, awkwardly repeating your words in song, awarding myself virtual points, imagining the things you say as famous quotes, blurting references you won't understand, leaving for long periods of time without notice, obsessively editing, doling out sarcasm, acting stupidly insecure, laughing too much, not laughing enough, and various others). I am also a ball of stress.

I honestly wish I was better at writing these.

I would probably have more friends.


Interests

Writing, Editing, Photography, Art, Soccer, and Music! (Circle the one that doesn't belong!)

Occupation

Student / Waitress


The idea that a poem was a made thing stayed with me, and I decided then that I wanted to be an artist, not just a diarist. So I put myself through a kind of apprenticeship in writing poetry, and I understood even then that my practice as a poet was deeply related to my reading.
