setmyworldintomotion's Profile Picture
set my world into motion.

twenty-three, sydney.
a psychology & neuroscience graduate;
quit a masters degree a quarter-way through for a social work degree, & working a pointless job.
i've recently re-discovered the beauty of stringing words together & will never stray from it again.

coffee. books. cities.
night drives. gigs.
tekken. arcades.
psych thrillers.
bar hopping.
all sudoku.
my life.

i'm one of those people who will thank you for the favourite. i apologise if comments of this nature irritate you.

hey guys,
how have you been? as i'm sure you've noticed, i've not been active on here for about a year. strangely enough, i still receive about ten page views a day.
i think it's quite apparent that my time on dA has pretty much come to an end. i've been on this website for about eight years with a couple of different accounts. dA reinforced my love of writing & i'm thankful for all that i've learnt on here, as well as the amazing people i've (virtually) met.
as you may have noticed, i've taken down all my "good" poetry from my gallery. i have plans for these pieces & leaving them on dA would hinder my plans. 
so i guess that leaves me to what i've been up to. i'm still at uni & i finish my second degree, my social work degree, in two months. it's scary to think about but i'm excited! i've also submitted to a few literature journals/magazines & have actually been shortlisted for a couple, including my uni's literary journal which is the oldest lit journal in australasia. i'm pretty stoked & can't wait to find out in the next week or so if either of the two poems shortlisted will be published. if they do, i'd get to go to the launch & mingle with editors & authors & other literary types. very exciting!
on the topic of literary journals, hi-hope & i have co-founded an online zine called Paper Lens. we've been fortunate enough to have a graphic designer lend his efforts into designing the zine, as well as semi-established writers and artists submit to it. our first issue will be out in october and subsequent issues will be released every three months. i'd appreciate it if you guys wanted to submit or check it out! you can find us on facebook, twitter, tumblr, & issuu (where the zine will be uploaded). click the links to find out more. if you'd like to submit to us, email your submissions to & we'll be forever thankful! all submitters will be allowed to place an ad in the zine for something they wish to spruik. nothing better than a free plug!
anyway, that's all from me. let me know how you all are going! if you'd like to stay in touch, follow Paper Lens on one or all of our social media accounts & we can catch up!
love & light. :heart:

One of these days I'm going to try to hire you and you're going to be taken aback by what a respectable young man, I am; my charm. I will never wield it against you… and this is why I believe. I want you working with me. I feel like Francis bacon and Donnie darko, as a hybrid; I want to invent a new science with the authority of religion and the tenacity of anthropology
You're gonna hire me, eh. Hire me for what? Do you think you'll/we'll be successful?
Btw, I'm on the dA phone app so I can't click the video you linked me to.

All good junkies go to heaven, by Glassjaw

I want someone intelligent enough to decipher and substianate my shorthand while I technically perfect singing this song…

I theorize that I have a capacity to write a book or three a year, 20-ish songs. I have a couple ideas which are goin to make me a ceo I'm sure and I'm going to need an assistant, generally

But honestly now I've realised I'd be really scared of hiring a girlfriend hahaha, I wouldn't be meaning for that to happen at all. But sometimes it's only the other customers that keep me and the teller in the bank from fucking
