My name is Kit and I have a drug problem. I'm all dark and passionate. And the thing I'm highest on is m'self. And I'm hipster. And I hate everything that's dumb! Leave me the hell alone.
I am a representative of synchronicity, here to help usher in the age of Aquarius. Or I'm just batshit crazy. Your call.

I am an INTJ, sometimes INFP. My zodiac sign is Cancer. Yes, believe it or not, I'm soft on the inside. My favourite colour is green. My second favourite colours are orange and purple. If I were a character in an RPG my element would be wind. I'd wear a silver circlet with a leaf in it. ...Now I kinda wanna go to the park all dressed up and yell "Aero 3!" at other people all dressed up. No, I mean I'm a dork, but I wouldn't actually take it that far... Just... Just for the record. I want to be a cross between Hunter S. Thompson, Jim Morrison, Russell Brand, Bill Maher and Squall from Final Fantasy VIII. Before he got all lovey-dovey.
One day I will have my all encompassing point. And it will be the name of God.
