I was tagged by @world-dahmination to post a photo AND 20 facts about myself so I figured I’d combine the two (I swear I leave my room more than my selfies imply)

And here’s 20 of the weirdest facts you probably never wanted to know

1 I once sang in a talent show

2 I have a YouTube channel with like, legitimate videos on there from when I tried to be a YouTuber

3 My twitter was once nominated for a Shorty Award for some unknown reason

4 My favourite YouTuber follows me on that same twitter account

5 I have terrible money management skills

6 I’m afraid of mirrors (yeah I know, ???)

7 The longest relationship I’ve been in was 2 years, 2 months, and 2 days

8 I guess technically I’ve also been engaged at one point

9 I have a huge scar from when I tried to scale the McDonald’s playplace, clearly it did not work

10 I have disassociation issues

11 You know that actor that played teenage/young adult Richard Ramirez in the 2016 movie “The Night Stalker”? Yeah, I’m friends with his cousin

12 I manage two true crime groups on Facebook, who knows, maybe you’ve seen me there?

13 I cosplay

14 I actually love riding on the metro

15 My favourite year is 1969

16 But if I had to pick a decade for music, it would be the 80s

17 I have a cousin also named Tristan, and another named Kyler, which is the name of my brother

18 I have huge crushes on Ezra Miller and David Bowie

19 I named my car Richie

20 And I’m an INTJ, Slytherin, and chaotic neutral

I’m not going to tag anyone specifically, but I would love if others did either the questions or the picture. And tag me somewhere so I can see your beautiful faces and get to know my followers!

Greetings, Tumblr! To the immediate left of the photo is @marsincharge and to the immediate right is @nukirk and together, we’re the co-creators of the #TheBlackout, the team behind the Shorty Award Nominated #Blackout and #Blackoutday! For the uninitiated, #Blackout is a tri-monthly call-to-action with a mission to celebrate and (re)define Blackness. It takes place on the 6th of every third month starting from March 6th! That means it happens on March 6th, June 6th, September 6th, and December 6th.  

We’ve been getting ready for our second anniversary on March 6th and are excited to announce that on Feb 6th starting at 2 PM EST / 11 AM PST, we get to have our turn at what Tumblr likes to call “Answer Time”! We’ll be answering questions about the hashtags and the Blackout’s goals and future. You can ask us anything at anytime, but we’ll be doing the most that day, so hit up our ask box here!

Can’t wait to answer your questions.

Sloane Siobhan is a visual artist specializing in oil painting. Nurturing her talents at the age of 4, she enrolled in MonArt and was trained by Jillian Goldberg and later attended high school at NorthWest School of the Arts to concentrate in visual arts. She graduated from Appalachian State University in December 2016 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, and painting concentration.

Sloane has worked on various projects including but not limited to client commissions, t-shirt designs & banners for the student run club Black Student Association, and silent auctions for the Heart Association. She was published in the Charlotte Observer in an article showcasing her talents to help spread awareness about the plight of women in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The article highlighted her successful solo exhibition at Providence Gallery in Charlotte, NC in 2010 in which all proceeds from the exhibit went to the foundation, Women for Women.

She was accepted into a year-long group exhibition at Appalachian State’s Chancellor’s House and exhibited her work in the 2016 group summer show, Visual Jungle in Charlotte, NC. She was commissioned by Appalachian State’s chancellor to create a piece for the university, that was also featured in the Bachelor of Fine Arts group exhibition, Calico, in December of 2016.
