The numbers that have a 4 in them.

WOOP.

Already answered 4.

14. If you could be a founding member of a space colony, with the caveat that you would never be able to return to Earth, would you go?

Possibly. I think it’d depend on the context - where is the space colony? Who’s part of it? What’s the purpose?

24. Define “love.”

The feeling that you are comfortable with someone, where you trust them with the biggest, scariest parts of yourself and know they’ll still accept you and be there for you. You may fight and withhold some things but you know at the end of the day that they’ll still be there for you to talk to and hang out with and have a great time with.

34. When are you vulnerable?

When I’m upset about things, namely the state of society or a bad self esteem day. When I’m anxious about things and can’t talk myself down. When I’m having a bad flare of my dumb illness and am visibly in pain. To name a few.

40. What is your most immediately noticeable quality?

People say it’s my smile or my eyes.

41. What is the first thing you notice about other people?

How friendly and responsive they are.

42. Describe one of your closest friends, and explain why that person is such a close friend.

My friend juncath, the nerdy cynical artist who has inexplicably stuck around with me for ages. We’ve known each other since elementary, not sure exactly when we became friends (I think it was the third grade, but we have a photo of us from the first grade and it’s adorable) but we’ve seen each other through a lot. We have a lot of the same interests, but we’re also so different that it’s complimentary.

43. What happened in the last dream you remember?

Already answered this one too!

44. What was your most memorable dream?

Gosh, I have a lot. I have an entire dream journal full of them. I would say any one of my zombie dreams or the one short story I had about the “fight between light and dark” it was cool.

45. Two truths and a lie.

I’ve never seen Ghostbusters, I can play the ukulele, and one of my legs is a centimetre longer than the other.
GUESS WHICH ONE IS THE LIE.

46. If you were having a baby with the love of your life, and they insisted that the child be named after a place, what would you name your child?

"Nightmare" because that’s what that sounds like.

47. What is the last lie you told?

I haven’t told a lie.
^ that one.

48. Is it possible for you to love someone you don’t trust?

I think so, but it strains things a lot and doesn’t make it actual love.

49. What motivates you most?

Normalcy. As bad as that sounds.

54. Describe a moment you experienced something unexpectedly beautiful.

I’m not sure if this is considered “beautiful” but I have experienced a lot of love and support in response to my being horrendously sick these past few weeks, and to me that’s been absolutely beautiful. It just reminded me how much love and concern people are capable of, and how supported I really am.

64. If you had to forget the entire last year except for one 24 hour period, which day would you chose to remember? (Other people would remember, and you would have anything you wrote down or recorded during that time period - you would just have a form of amnesia.)

The first thing that comes to mind is a day where I invited one of my now-close friends over to watch a hockey game and make food. I was feeling physically great because I had just started my new medication, I was doing fairly well in school and in good courses (and remember I had gotten a bunch of marks back that day and they were excellent), I had seen a bunch of great friends that day, the Flames won some trivial game, and that evening we stayed up until 4 am talking about a bunch of stuff. I really like getting to know people, especially if we click well, and I remember that as being a big turning point in a lot of aspects.

74. What was the last adorable thing you saw?

Me when I looked in a mirror. Ayyyyy.
No but for real, it was a video of Bub. I friggin love Bub what a cute cat.

84. In general, are you happy with the person you have become?

I’m happy with aspects of who I am, but there’s a lot I still would like to work on. So in that sense, I’m happy with how I’m progressing (except for my intestines, I am not happy with that).

94. What song speaks to you most? Why?

Bluh that depends on my mood that day. Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of Bruce Springsteen, namely Thunder Road, so take from that what you will.

Whew. That was a lot. Thanks anon!!

4, 6, 15, 19, 43, 50, 55, 93, 99

4. Name a celebrity you find attractive.

Ewan McGregor. Next question.

6. What is the ultimate gesture of total trust?

Allowing someone to witness me and be around me in the most vulnerable, needy, broken down state.

15. What is your favorite superpower? Why?

It’s a tie between three.
Telekinesis for ultimate laziness.
Teleportation for ultimate time-saving.
Time-stopping for ultimate nap-having.

19. What is your favorite paradox?

Oh god no don’t make me pick. There are so many paradoxes that I spend a lot of time thinking about. The ship paradox (when you have replaced all the parts of a ship is it still the same ship) is one I find particularly interesting when applied to the idea of humans being able to “replace” parts of themselves. Also Galileo’s paradox, on how there cannot be more numbers than sqare numbers. And also the liar paradox and NO. I’M STOPPING THIS NOW.
Tl;dr, I love paradoxes.

43. What happened in the last dream you remember?

Oh it was messed up. And also a musical. I wasn’t myself, I was a different person, and I was part of a family that lived in the Bronx. I had two brothers as well, and one of them was romantically involved with a Latin American girl from a “rival gang”. Very Romeo and Juliet slash West Side Story, except it derailed pretty quickly and members of “my” extended family were getting shot by this rival gang. The last thing I remember from this dream was I was in my house in a dark room and my significant other was dead, and I was singing about the shooter guy and how he shouldn’t do it and how saddening it was, until I realized that the shooter was in the room. So I turned to look and it was MY OTHER BROTHER????
Yeah. The songs were all original too. I wish I had written them down properly.

50. What is your favorite narrative trope?

Where the narrator throws you into the thick of things and you have NO idea what’s going on so you have to piece things together as you find information out. Conversely, I can’t stand the ones where they throw you in the thick of things and then go “xx hours earlier…” that’s dumb. No. Stop.

55. What is the biggest challenge you face when trying to form relationships with people?

Being authentic so I find people who will accept me for who I really am, instead of being who I think people want me to be so they’ll like me.

93. Your friend tells you that they are suicidal, and asks you not to tell anyone. Is it more of a betrayal to tell someone, or to keep silent?

To keep silent. I think that when people say they are suicidal, they may not be in the healthiest state to be making the decision about whether or not they want to continue living, and to keep quiet about it is to deny that person resources that may help.

99. Who is the one person you know who is most similar to you (in terms of personality, beliefs, attitudes, mannerisms, etc)?

Most definitely dontswallow. We understand each other quite well.

Thanks anon!!

Don’t forget we have to wake up Green Day tomorrow.

Ok just a reminder to everyone: If you’re planning on tweeting billie joe armstrong “wake up” or something tomorrow, DON’T. The song is about his father’s death and so it’s really personal and treating it like a joke isn’t the right thing to do. Plus he’s asked so many times for people to stop and no one listens so yeah. Please don’t do that.

Step 329: If someone is waiting on something they *really* want that is out of their control, don’t constantly ask them if it’s happened yet

adulting:

Is your friend …

• Unemployed and searching for a job?
• Wanting to find the right someone but hasn’t?
• Trying to get pregnant and having a hard time with it?
• Waiting to hear back from that dream grad school program?

When the thing they have desperately been waiting for happens, they will tell you. Peppering them with questions and/or unsolicited advice on how they can better achieve this life goal is probably not what they’re looking for.

Instead, it’s just depressing to have to vocalize, again and again, that no, the thing they want has not yet happened, and then have to sit patiently while the other person tells them to keep their chin up, or that the right one is coming, or whatever.

It’s great to ask, more generally, how everything is with them. If they want to cry on your shoulder or share great news, they will.
