Things and Schemes

My name's Will. I'm a grad student, whiskey-drinker, and art collector with a love of all things pop culture. I spend my days reading books, making tea, and contemplating the universe. I spend my nights fighting crime, taking bubble baths, and reading poetry. I like cats, stairwells, and hip bones. This is my corner of the Internet. If you must know more. I look like this. I dabble in photography.

“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.”

“(George) Orwell… was fighting against the Fascists in the Spanish Civil War. Orwell was in an air raid in which an enemy soldier, presumably carrying a message to an officer, jumped out of a trench and ran along the top of a parapet, half-dressed and holding up his trousers with both hands as he ran. Rather than do his duty and shoot the man, Orwell let him go. Orwell wrote, ‘I had come here to shoot at “Fascists”; but a man who is holding up his trousers isn’t a “Fascist,” he is visibly a fellow-creature, similar to yourself, and you don’t feel like shooting him.’”

– Hilde Lindemann

Fun fact: I’m going back to Nashville for the first time since I moved. Since I’m driving there’s a chance I’ll just stay and never come back to reality.

Fun fact: I want a significant other that is one part Rhona Mitra, one part Colton Haynes, and one part Martha Nussbaum.

Fun fact: I get words stuck in my head and I use them all the time. Right now it’s “re/inscribe.”
