As requested, this is a post of introduction to myself. My name is Severn. I'm a fifteen year old high school sophmore. I live in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I'm obsessed with typology. (Carl Jung is my homeboy, and I'm an INTP... which is basically a completely oblivious, socially-inept genius. Although I wouldn't say "genius" describes me truthfully.) I dabble in photography (hence the blog), writing (I'm considering going to Ryerson for journalism), and overusing brackets (ha ha ha). For fun, I translate French songs into English and vice a versa. Morrissey's "Come Back to Camden" was a bitch to translate.

I'm also horrible at writing about myself. Honestly, I googled "how to write about one's self" before I began this post. It wasn't a useful or fruitful search, so I suppose I'm left to my own defences. I like a tonne of different kinds of music, despite how picky I am. My favourite musicians are Serge Gainsbourg, The Smiths, Joy Division, The Radio Dept, Grizzly Bear, Beach House, Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake, Fleet Foxes, Bob Dylan, New Order and lots of French ye-ye pop.

As far as movies go, I like films by Harmony Korine, Wes Anderson, Hitchcock, Kubrick, Sofia Coppola and David Lynch.
My favourite photographers are included in my Link list, if you care to know.

Literature. I love Haruki Murakami, Ayn Rand, Philip K Dick, George Orwell, and Jack Kerouac.

I keep this blog because I like having a blog to share and network. Whatever blogs are for, exactly.
Thanks for reading! Here are some old photos, expect ones snapped with my new flash sometime next week:
The floor of the pharmacy where I get my photos developed. Last exposure before processing!
Walking to work I saw this tree. I'm a Night School office assistant for my school district.
In the upper Massey wing girl's washroom at my school. I laugh so much whenever I look at this.
