What’s up?

I’m just looking for some real people to talk to. I like music, (a lot) books, and movies. I’m cultured, know what I’m saying? I’m a great conversationalist. I have strong opinions, but I always like to learn more and see more. I’m down to pop it, talk to somebody, and see what’s good. That said, hit me up.
