I’ve been known to wear a hat well.

Your writer crush(es):

Hera Lindsay Bird + Zoe Dzunko.

Favorite lyric:

“This feeling doesn’t go away
I feel it moving through me
I want a love I had inside
Want to feel it moving through me
In dreams I’m moving through heavy water
The love is enormous its lifting me up
I’d rather be sleeping
I’d rather fall into tidal waves
right where the deepest currents flow”
– Heavy Water / I’d Rather Be Sleeping by Grouper

Character (TV, book, movie) you most identify with:

It’s rare that I relate to any fictional character, but the last one I can remember is Ruthie from Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson. (“A solitary and sensitive child, Ruthie becomes a tall, gangly young woman who admits that she has “never distinguished readily between thinking and dreaming.””)

Last time you lied:

This morning.

The lie:

My boss asked me how I was and I said ‘good’. It was 7am, I can’t feel good that early.
