I’ve been writing here for a while and I figured it was about time to introduce myself. I was reluctant to do this because I didn’t think anyone would care (you still probably don’t) so I thought that if I was going to do it, it’d had to be in a “special way”. You know when you see someone that seems interesting and you want to get to know the “little things” about them? That’s what I’m going to tell you about me.

I am 20 years old, but I wish I was younger. I never did the stupid things high schoolers do and right now I wish I had. I like laying down on my bed with my headphones blasting chill beats and pretending I’m somewhere else. I like walking slower when it rains while people run beside me. I hate clothes that don’t have pockets and I own a pair of high black socks covered in French fries and the legend “fries before guys”. I like making eye contact with strangers on the bus and seeing who gives up and looks away first. I don’t like it when kids touch me or talk to me in public because I don’t really like kids in general. I like reading seemingly regular sentences that make you feel stuff. I used to write down my dreams right after I woke up, but I stopped, and I’ve regret it ever since. I still haven’t started writing them down again. I have a lot of scars in my arms from the rabbit I used to own; he didn’t like being held but I was a stupid kid, so I didn’t care. I was once riding my bike down the street when I thought it’d be a great idea to close my eyes to feel the wind on my face. That’s how I got a scar on my leg after crashing into a tree. I still like walking around with my eyes closed and I always do it when the person next to me agrees to make sure I don’t stumble into anything. I wish I was brave enough to pack a bag and leave somewhere I’ve never been before, but I don’t think I am. I don’t like hugs, they just seem so… uncomfortable. I always write articles pretending no one will read them even though I know I’m going to post them later. I am 85% sure everyone stopped reading by now. I don’t like watching movies because two hours seem like too much of a commitment, I just stop watching after 40 minutes. I watch a lot of anime but even though I love it, it makes me wish that my life was completely different. I am also constantly haunted by the thought that if I don't run away and start traveling around the world now, time will pass right by me. I like thinking that right now, at this very second, the love of my life is somewhere living the life they are gonna talk about when we finally meet. I believe that the world is a wheel and that in every one of our lives we find the same souls we’ve encountered before. If I think too much about it, I think that’s all bullshit and I’m just lying to myself. The fact that I wasn’t born with synesthesia almost makes me want to restart my life and press the “randomize” button until I get it.

I think that’s enough for now. I may consider making a second part if this one gets some hearts. I don’t know. Thank you if you’ve read this far, feel free to check out my other articles where I write completely different things.
