In their free time, they enjoy thinking about writing novels without ever acting on it, watching bad horror movies, and developing an emotional connection to plants. They also enjoy hiking an camping and dream of one day visiting every National Park in the US. They have been working especially hard on becoming a published writer and a respected in political and literary discourse and are focused on channeling experiences with neurodivergence, trauma, bisexuality, poverty, and other personal circumstances into meaningful works of writing and art.
