I got tagged by @spoondragon aka the great spoondragon. Danke!
Rules: Answer the Qs and tag 9 people you want to get to know better.
How old are you? 31
Current Job? i just started working as a production manager. for a company. and i do the smallest bit of freelance illustration on the side. but i kind of feel like not an entirely failed adult atm, so that’s something.
What are you talented at? drawing. writing. and i learn things quickly? that’s really about it.
What is a big goal you are working towards (or have already achieved)?write a novel that speaks to one person who is not just me.
What’s your aesthetic? i don’t even really know what this means. which one is the quiet, simmering rage?
Do you collect anything? no. i have a fear of possessions. i have books, but that’s about it for a collection, and it’s pretty small.
A topic you always talk about? politics. i could, and would love to, talk more about poverty and mental health and gender and sexuality, but irl i am not all that open.
Pet peeve? loudness. dog shit on sidewalks. overconfident shits who don’t know what they’re talking about.
Good advice? “Probably the most important thing is that when things get really bad and the world looks its darkest, you just have to throw up your hands and say “Well, alright!” cause it’s probably gonna get a whole hell of a lot worse.” Alfred Packer, Cannibal! The Musical
“eat yer beets.” me, now
j/k it’s not even advice. it’s just all of Grandpa from Angus (1995) …actually, maybe he’s my aesthetic
Recommend 3 songs: i’m not a music person. i love it, but i’ve got none of the taste to recommend anything to anyone, so i’m going to do books, and even those will almost certainly be predictable, so like, i don’t know. 1. The Pearl that Broke Its Shell by Nadia Hashimi. 2. The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien (just reread it okay? i know you had to in high school, but do it again.) 3. Mysterious Skin by Scott Heim. and i’m stil working on it, but The Devil All the Time by Donald Ray Pollock seems like a good recommendation so far.
I will tag: @samnesmail @ramihackme @ramiiiiiiiiiiiiiii @angelasarafyanspuke @snafu-is-dying-sledge @malekscurls @ramisbooty @ramimalektbh @mrrobutt but obviously you all decide if you want to do this or not. i never post my answers to other taggy-thingies, but i’m feeling nothing tonight but alcohol.
