Heavin Taylor   I am a half Pakistani, North Carolina Born, Oklahoma Raised woman. I work as a human sexuality research and teaching assistant. I also hold down a boring corporate job to pay my bills, but it's just part of the hustle. I've given myself a deadline of June 2017 to relocate. I do not know where I'm going, but I'm hungry so I will probably stop to grab food first.  Instagram:  @heaventaay
