About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Hap hap!

ABOUT ME

I'm Finnish-Polish character, shy and quiet, but passionate, impulsive. I am a constant dreamer and escaper. I prefer to make some odd noises with my mouth then speak, though I like to converse and tell stories too.

I've always wanted to be a writer, but I am so scared to start, and afraid of a failure. However sometimes I find strength.

I am kind of obsessed with ungenderizing polish language. My writing is full of gender-chaos and -confusion.

PHILOSOPHY

I am not sure yet...
But maybe life is not so much for me.
I don't feel to this world I gess, or I just did't find my own place yet.
Sometimes feels like I can't live, if it's possible to say that in english...
