Hi there! My name is Maxine, and I’m a twenty-two-year-old human bean.
I live in LA, where I go to school at UCLA. I study political science and have mostly no idea what I will be doing once I finish doing that. I enjoy things like painting my nails, rubbing my cat’s belly, and buying lots of stationery products. I care a lot about mental health and figuring out how to deal with my anxiety and sometimes depression well. I think (worry) a lot about how to be a good person, but I’ve been less successful in figuring that one out, being that I live in an imperialist patriarchal white supremacist late-stage capitalist society and I sometimes benefit from that. My favorite Pokémon is Pikachu; I played Pokémon Yellow on the Gameboy Colour in my youth. I could happily eat noodles every day until I die. As you can see from this paragraph, writing ‘about me’ pages is clearly a big challenge for me.
This blog doesn’t have a clear purpose. I’m not here to teach you things or sell you things. I’m here on Earth to figure things out and so I guess I’m here on this corner of the Internet to share some of it. Feel free to stick around – I’ll be here either way, chattering away, and friends are nice to have.
