I never do these, but how could I say no to my buddy, Leo? I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into who I am. If I tagged you and you don't feel like doing this, it's okay. No worries. Oh, and if this looks all jacked up it's because I copied and pasted from a document, so sorry about that. Ignore how weird it looks.
I was tagged by my Foxy friend
My version of the rules:
Read these because I had to think really hard about them.
Each of you jokers needs to share ten, count 'em TEN, things about yourself.
Choose ten people to tag and put their icons in your journal. Oh, did I mention the journal?
The journal! Post a journal with rules, the ten things about you, and the icons of the lovely people you are tagging to do this next.
OH! Answer the questions directed towards you then make up ten more for the people you are tagging in your journal.
For the love of GOD, do not make me do this again.
You'll probably need copious amounts of coffee, so put the pot on now. -waits-
Questions? You can message me or comment this here journal.
My answers to Leo's questions:
If your art was on any product or package, what would you like it to be?
Hmm..my art is writing, so maybe a cd or album, Linear notes would be kind of cool.
Are any of your pictures done from your nightmares? Which ones? Oh? Why not?
Some of the things that happen in my story are inspired by dreams I've had, yes. I've dreamed of Alexi's castle and of how deeply tormented his soul is. I find I'm inspired by the dark haunting images of dreams. Beautiful things can come from them.
Do you feel you are arting to the best of your ability and reaching for the top, or do you think you are holding something back?
This is a very good question, because I ask myself this on a regular basis. I feel as though I always work my hardest to write something I can be proud of, but it's not a stagnant thing. Writing, like visual arts, has to change and develop over time, so I never want to get too comfortable with it. I have to keep striving to improve. -nods-
Is there another era you'd rather live in than this one? Which one?
I would like to see what life was like during the Middle Ages, I think. Not sure I'd want to live there, though. It'd be cool to do like a Bill and Ted thing, and time hop. Lol
What is your most beloved junk-food? Is it connected with a happy memory? Don't tell me you don't eat junk food! Lying is bad
I love cupcakes so much, but also salt and vinegar chips. Not together, though. Those are not really connected to anything except my stomach. I do have wonderful memories of the delicious raisin pie my grandmother used to make. I haven't had it since she passed away, but I can still smell it cooking in the small kitchen on her farm
Do you work a job? Do you feel like it came along and ate up all your time? Do you want to stab that job?
Honey, I work TWO jobs. They certainly do eat up all my time. Days off are practically non-existent, so I'm a tired guy a lot. One job is teaching, and every time my kids tell me they don't like to read I want to scream.
Do you admire any artists from a hundred years ago or longer? Who? Why? What? Tell me!
I really like Brugel, for some odd reason. I think his stuff is kind of neat. I don't know exactly what it is that I love so much about it, but my dad is the one that showed his work to me. Maybe it's a little sentimental. I like this one: classconnection.s3.amazonaws.c…
You are mega-special, aren't you? What? That's a good thing!
YES I AM!!!!
Do you have any big ambitious projects coming up? Tell me about them! Oh, it's a secret?
It's no secret. I'm in the process of writing my first novel. Of course with my lack of spare time, it's taking a bit longer than I'd like.
Who is your favorite detective? Real or fictitious is okay. What do you mean you don't dig detectives?
Inspector Clouseau (Pink Panther movies)
Tagging: (Only do this if you want to. I'll still love you if you don't)
