Latest ask meme: 3, 6, 9, 15, 16, 18, 30, 39, 54, 65, 72, 76, 86, 89, 91. Sorry for asking so many. Hope you're having a good day!
Thanks so much for the prompts, you two! Thanks for wanting to get to know me. :) And heyyyy, the more you send me, the longer I’m entertained! :)
3. City that you live in
I am proud to say I’ve been born, raised, and still live in the state of Colorado, USA! City I live in (well, just outside of) is the same one that Michael Scott moves to at the end of The Office Season 7.
Creative writing, drawing, playing musical instruments, music composing, conlanging (creating languages), video gaming, reading, writing analyses on this site, stuff like that!
9. Have you ever collected anything? What was it?
I have a major hoard-and-never-throw-anything-away problem. I’ve collected and still collect lots of things! Coins and currency, action figures, dragon and faerie figurines, comics, books, musical instruments, nerdy shirts, I guess posters count? I also have a big thing for wanting to take photographs with friends to carry those memories visually forever.
It’s entirely the wrong time of day to take pictures, and my apartment is (as usual) messy, but I’ll post some pictures of my collected items below the cut of this ask!
15. Favorite food
16. Favorite drink
18. Are you optimistic or pessimistic?
I like to call myself a “pragmatic optimist.” I’m far too logical, cynical, and bitter in life to be optimistic, but the way I approach a situation is like this: I walk in neutral with the expectation it might go well, it might not, but it’s extremely unlikely the situation will go the worst it can go. So I go in casually expecting that I might have a good time. Definitely not an optimist because I usually think things won’t go my way and that life won’t be amazing, but also, despite my award-winning internal bitterness, not a full-blown pessimist.
30. Favorite flower?
My middle name is “Rose” so every time I see a rose I feel a connection. Visually I like peonies better. Favorite flower to smell to eternity is the lilac, second in scen category is also the peony.
39. How many green shirts do you own?
Uhhhhhhhhh… *tries counting*
And I think there are two in the wash? So something like… eight? Ish? Depending on how you demarcate the boundaries between green and blue? (I tend to switch to “blue” categorization far before most other people I know do).
54. What is your favorite medium of art? (Music, dance, painting, etc.)
That’s a rude question. I appreciate many media of art. I love movies, shows, and video games for the collaboration of many forms of art: visual, animation, music, storytelling, acting, etc. That’s aweing. And I love a good book.
I think, though, the answer for me must be music. I’ve definitely lived the hardcore musician life. I did get a degree in music, I enjoy exploring all music has to offer, and there’s something so wonderful about living in Classical Music culture.
65. If you could live anywhere, where would you live? The place can be in an imaginary, fantasy, or the real world.
The place I live now. I moved out of Seattle and back to this area precisely because it’s where I want to be. I want to move further in town and get a flippin house, but I am living in the area I want to be. Though I think I would be very happening living in the Shire with the Hobbits, too. Only problem is the Shire doesn’t have comic conventions or movie theatres.
72. What is the craziest thing you would do for a million dollars?
I’d do almost anything for a million dollars, like seriously. Hang out in a room full of scorpions? Sure. Why not? I also love snakes so that’d be an easy million. Send a twitter message to a major celebrity with just the word “celery”? Sure. Why not? Could maaaaybe even be convinced to like post a pic of my butt crack online somewhere? Idk. Just will say, nothing death-defying or racist or uncool like that. That I won’t do for a million bucks.
76. What is the funniest joke you have ever been told?
Ooo ooo ooo! Here are my two favorite jokes!!!
- What did the teacher say when he lost his pencil? Where’s my pencil?
- What do you call a fish with no eyes? A fsh.
………don’t judge my sense of humor. XD
Also I will freely admit I’ve laughed at “funnier” jokes from movies and games. Mass Effect’s Citadel DLC is a blessing. And Lance milking Kaltenecker made me cry I was laughing so hard.
86. Would you rather have wings or a fish tail?
My nickname might be “Haddock” but definitely the wings. I have a deep love for faeries already. Me getting wings would be extraordinarily awesome beyond belief. Dragon wings, hawk wings, dragonfly wings, butterfly wings, seriously, any of those would be epically awesome. I would be so badass with wings.
89. How many digits of pi can you recite?
In high school I memorized the first fifty. I even composed a piece that used the digits of pi as a melody, so that was a good memory device to help me along, too. Anymore… uhhh… let’s put me on the spot. I’ll try to type the numbers now.
Well at least I got that much right. And now I’m grumbling because duhhh the next sequence I really should have remembered. That was really lame. That was only eighteen digits. I’m out of practice, yo!
91. Describe yourself in one word.
