On a more serious note, I blog a lot about my experiences with a neurological disorder. I went to school for psychology and sociology, but decide not to continue my degree and instead decided to take some time to collect myself and learn about myself. It has been about 4 years since then.

I may continue my studies when I am more financially stable. Right now I balance the moral dilemma of whether or not my endeavors in art will ever be good enough to help people. I wonder if I should combine my interest in nutrition, wellness, and self-care with my interest in cognitive therapy, though it would surely mean giving up a lot of what I am working towards now.

I want people to feel the way I feel now that I am on my way to being well again. I live for life affirming moments, because sensations are dull for me. The only way for me to truly “experience” my life is to elaborate on it intellectually in some way, this is why I make things. In a sense, I have to. Maybe I would die if I stopped.

I am often spread thin because I am very non-committal. Not to say that I don’t work hard, because that’s far from the case, but that I am always bouncing back and forth between things. Not like television shows or different records, I mean things that require lifetimes to master. I am hoping I’m marginally decent at a few things by the time I’m dead.

If you hadn’t noticed I’m also very interested in personal style. This has a lot to do with some lifelong body dysphoria tied to never being overtly masculine, I think. Sometimes I conceal my body or attempt to make it look larger than it is. Most of the time I want to appear very gender neutral, in all senses of the word. I detest traditional menswear. Only as an adult have I been able to finally define what my appropriate presentation is, once I finally worked up the courage to do things that might stand out. Now they are second nature for me, I present myself only how I wish to, within the best of my ability.

Hi
I am Zachary I post shit like this and images I like
I work at a metal shop and run a small jewelry company on the side.
I cook a lot and make music and I like to run and ride my bike.
I am into herbs basil is my favorite.
I don’t ever say that I am genderfluid and I am fine with “him/he” but also I don’t really feel any gender most of the time.
Time is my main love language.
Sometimes I am very much grey-asexual other times I am a ravenous perv
Sometimes (all the time) I am checking myself out in the mirror and thinking about how pictures don’t seem to capture how cute (I think I am) and sometimes I get a little turned on by meself and then I also am disappointed I have no1 2 share me w/
I am predominately straight meaning I have only been w/women my whole life and that (seems) to be all I am romantically interested in but also I find myself attracted to all sorts of people so maybe someday that will change.
I’m a Sagittarius.
What other useless crap u wanna know?
My favorite color is mauve.

I need a good short, fitted all purpose jacket and some rugged juilus_7 slim fit jeans, and a pair of all purpose boots. At which point I will sell all these impractical statement pieces and wear the same thing every day.

I engineered this soundscape to inspire energy and inward thinking. The abbreviated rhythms and long sounds create a contrasting environment to both excite and relax you.

Sometimes while I’m waiting for a pot to boil or something I will do core exercises on the kitchen floor.

If u have lower back pain and can manage some sit ups, crunches, leg lifts, planks, and bicycle kicks, try them if u can. Doing some cycle of 3 or more of those once or twice a week takes me about 10 mins but it has almost completely gotten rid of my back pain. That and correcting my posture.

Core muscle are some of our most important protective and structural muscles, but we don’t really seem use them much day to day except to hold ourselves upright. Strengthening them is really good for bad backs!

I think the worst part about allergy flare ups is how sore my balls get.
