About Me

I’m a girl-type-human in my early twenties trying to lead a life focused on poetry and philosophy.  I’m currently living in a tiny basement apartment in Kalamazoo, Michigan, with my neurotic dog and my boyfriend-bestfriend-type human.

This blog began as a journal of my escapades in a study-away program in New York City. Earlier entries will read as “I-did-this-I-did-that” kind of journals. Since returning, the blog floated along in a strange vein to which I was not loyal. My hope for it is that it might become a place I can share any and all writing of my choosing, because fucklabelsandeverything I’m a free bird and stuff.

I: write poems, read books, blather on about philosophy, make coffee for a (measly) living, lift weights, run (if the mood strikes me), make attempts to eat real food, sing and play the flute in a friend’s band, and am doing my best to at least start figuring out how to take care of myself.


Thanks for reading, suckaaaahs!

    Hey Kim. This is so awesome. Since you are in the process of “metamorphisizing”;). I would like to share the the definition of perfectionist that I now embrace…..perfect/perfectionist=what is!!! All is perfect just as it is!!! The understanding that most have of a perfectionist, should really be called imperfectionist, because they are more concerned with what is not “perfect”;)) Since growth and change are on the agenda for NYC……embrace the new perfectionist in you! (speaking from the mouth of a former imperfectionist!!!). Have a blast~grace

      Hey, Grace! Thanks so much for your advice. It’s funny that I just discovered this comment, because I literally purchased a book called “Present Perfect” only a couple hours ago on the very subject. The premise is similar to everything you just said! It’s by a psychologist by the name of Pavel Somov. So far it’s very interesting and helpful!
