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.
