I dislike doing #introduction posts, because my identity is at once inscrutably strange and frustratingly typical. I am not defined by my interests so much as by the contradictions between them. I am the shadow that can only be cast in bright sunlight. Those who think they know me know only a distorted reflection of themselves.
Also, I like tea.
