“What am I in the eyes of most people — a nonentity, an eccentric, or an unpleasant person — somebody who has no position in society and will never have; in short, the lowest of the low. All right, then — even if that were absolutely true, then I should one day like to show by my work what such an eccentric, such a nobody, has in his heart. That is my ambition, based less on resentment than on love in spite of everything, based more on a feeling of serenity than on passion. Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me. I see paintings or drawings in the poorest cottages, in the dirtiest corners. And my mind is driven towards these things with an irresistible momentum.”

-Van Gogh

I’m Maria, and I’m a 16 year old surrealist. I’ve already traveled the world a bit, but I crave to see more of it. I love to read all kinds of books. Taking photographs is also something I love to do (original, right). I drink way too many cups of coffee. I love bands like Bon Iver, Beach House, Peter Bjorn and John, etc. etc. I go through phases where I cannot get enough of writing, and then I go through times where I can’t seem to write at all. If anything, I wish that was different. I have a large interest in different cultures, and I want to learn a few languages. I am rather sensitive and introverted, but for the most part, I’m okay with that. And yes, I also love Jesus.
