Hi cute people sending me Qs
I’m in Florida and I do not have much access to Internet so check back in 4 days and I will shower you all with reciprocal attention!
This is one of the best things I have ever seen. Spring 2013 will be remembered for many things, among them being the time I rediscovered the total brilliance of Odd Future. I forget that Tyler the Creator is one of the best writers of unrequited love songs of our generation. Make sure you watch till the end when the song switches to Jamba - it’s perfect and makes me long to be in a mosh pit
The absurdity of this google search only dawned on me after it was too late
Anonymous asked: wat do you have planned for the summer?
Working on my shitty book, going to Florida tomorrow, bopping around Brooklyn with my friends when I’m back, then going home for a sec to see my baby sister graduate, then having the Best Weekend Ever in DC, then having some friends in town, then teaching at Columbia, working on my shitty book, possibly going to Peru when I’m done teaching, then Boston with my family
Anonymous asked: What are your thoughts on digging into someone's personal life via invasive questions from curiosity? I personally like being an open book, obviously others don't. But I feel like people with an artistic mindset such as yourself would be more accepting to answering heart-wrenching questions to connect with someone on a deeper level? Even if its someone you don't know that well. It's kind of one of those things where I'm like what's the point without the emotion?
Interesting question. I used to be an extremely open book and I was proud of it. I noticed that it put other people at ease when I shared myself. I think a lot of the problems in the world come from people being ashamed of their humanity and I liked setting an example. I liked that as soon as my secrets came out of my mouth, they felt less serious and that was healing for me. I also liked that being open allowed me to connect to lots of people. Being open absolutely led me to having more magical experiences than most of my more self-contained peers.
But as I get older I notice that there are some things I want to keep close to my heart. It’s a way of holding onto yourself. I’m still very comfortably open about most things, but you have to have some boundaries otherwise you’ll be worn thin.
It’s been a problem with a lot of people I’ve cared about. I am able to get close to so many people out and about in the world that sometimes the people I’m in serious friendships or relationships with don’t feel special- as though the way I’m bonding with them is indistinguishable from how I bond with the world. The difference is that the people I love who are close to me literally possess my heart- and when I’m out in the world, getting to know people in ways that may seem very exposing, I always have an invisible shield up. I can get very emotionally personal with people without being emotionally intimate with them, if that makes any sense.
I’d rather someone asked me an interesting question than a boring one and if I don’t want to answer, I’ll just say so. I like when people demonstrate genuine, probing interest in each other. Most people are apathetic and just waiting for their turn to talk. I ask lots of intrusive questions of people, usually by accident because I forget about taboos a lot, and I appreciate when people are curious about me. Long story short, I think it’s a healthier and more playful, rewarding way to socialize
My wonderful friend Charlotte is starting a party in Williamsburg for the Special Peoples, aka Female Homosexuals and Friends. If you’re gay and cool and in proximity to Williamsburg, I advise you to come tonight:

Today N and I had a day at the movies. We saw Portrait of Jason at IFC and it was intense, funny and heartbreaking

I have the best dad of all time, the best father ever
Anonymous asked: Sleep no more is totally solo so once you decide you're definitely going (which you will because you have to) then you don't really have to go with anyone else. I guess it is nicer to though because they have the most badass 1920s bar where you first walk in. I think I'm going to go by myself again before it closes.
Yeah, it actually seems like the kind of thing I would prefer to do alone. 1920s bar is cool though - it takes place in the 20s?
