Hi! I've been following you for a while and I love your blog and writing! I usually don't ask people things on here. But you seem really sweet in your responses. I was wondering if you could answer this with 10 facts about yourself!
I just saw this, sorry anon! That’s seriously so sweet. 10 facts about myself..hmmm I’ll try
1- I wear high waisted pants every single day, and I’ve honestly forgotten what my bellybutton looks like
2- I’ve been dating my boyfriend Filip since November, 18 2011. He just moved to California for college and I’m in Chicago so it’s pretty difficult but I love tha kid.
3- I have an obsession with hot sauce, spices, and spicy food. This is not an exaggeration. Ask Dana. Our room smells because I can’t not eat hot sauce.
4- I’m a poet and I’ve been published a few times in some low key journals and magazines.
5- I get perms! Once a year. Painful and smelly as shit but so worth it. Love me some crazy curly hair.
6- I smoke cigarettes. Newports.
7- My parents are divorced but have a very unusual relationship. My parents are both remarried and my mom and step mom are really close. It makes it really easy for me and my brother to live a back and forth life between houses.
8- My best friend Dana and I run a literary magazine called Rib Cage Chicago, the submission deadline of which is approaching and you should all submit your poetry.
9- My middle name is Joe and my family calls me variations of it: Joseph, Joe, Joey, Joselini and Meatballs, Joey Potatoes, Joey Bananas. (my father is rather creative)
10- I have 4 siblings. Benjamin is 17. Avery and Finley are 6. Lauren is 5.
How has living in the city changed your style? You get all these anons about your style and I decided to look at your pictures and you are perfect
I wouldn’t exactly say the city has changed my style, but is has definitely enabled me. Sometimes I remark at the fact that when I go home people stare at my clothes like I look ridiculous or something, but the city gasps for new and unique and I find that being here lets me be whatever I want, whatever I couldn’t be in high school. I like where I’m at. It’s a good place to really find yourself, however cliche. And thank you so much, that is just too kind of you.
