Hey, how are you?
I'm a student at Berkeley, (which is lovely by the way, really you should come visit), and I love it, just like I'm in love with my home, and Paris cafes, and hiking in Yosemite, and traveling around Europe, and all the incredible people and stories I find along the way. Every time I visit somewhere I can't imagine not going back-there's always some sort of beauty that is impossible to find in any other place, but the more I travel, the more places I want to see. And that says it all really. I'm in love with art and music and literature, culture and language. I'm in love with life, and seeing, living as much of it as I can.
PS-You look lovely today by the way.
Pps: on the other hand, I cannot accept anyone without any references-(please have at least 5-if you can’t host, just go to a couple events)-I live alone, we haven’t met, I’ve had bad experiences in my home before, and it’s basic safety-sorry, but hope you understand, and please stop messaging and friending me-thanks!
life is for living, so lets see the beauty in every moment, and never know regret

Animal Collective, cocorosie, a little air now and then, the new pornographers (unerringly sentimental), Kings of Convenience, Daft Punk, crystal castles (still, i know), belle and sebastian, the smiths, explosions in the sky, Modeselektor, Bob Marley and Dylan, and nearly everything thats come my way.
