Hi, I’m Jake! I’m a 17-year-old currently residing in Tampa, Florida. I’m in my senior year of high school, I’m planning on attending the University of Chicago. I have many interests, but chief among them are the studies of writing (I’m 2/3 of the way through my sixth novel) literature, philosophy, religion (specifically Zen and other forms of Buddhism and mysticism), nature, my wonderful friends, cooking, riding my bike, and lots of great music. This Tumblr is a place where I’ll put excerpts from my writing, photos of nature and mystic traditions, quotes from philosophers and writers I like, and various other spilled ink. Please feel free to contact me through the Ask box :0) Here’s a few pictures of me! Have a great day!
