22. Female. Pisces. Aspiring Writer. Occasional Junkie. Unemployed Bum. Introvert. Negative. Over-thinker. Quirky. Awkward. Finished a Journalism and Literature double major. Loves all fields of art - whether it’s literature or sculpting or cooking. This blog is where I post all art-work that inspires, influences or affects my identity and writing.
“Every weirdo in the world is on my is on my wavelength.”
