Along came a TAG!

Tue Mar 10, 2015, 2:23 AM

Aeirmid tagged me, lol, I'm still deciding how I feel about it....

The Rules

1) You must post these rules 
2) Share 10 facts about yourself 
3) Answer the 10 questions asked by the person who tagged you and make up 10 questions for people you tag 
4) Choose 10 people and put 10 icons in your journal
5) Not something like, "You are tagged if you read that". 
6) You have to legitimately tag 10 people. 
7) No tag-backs. 
8) You can't say that you don't do tags. 
9) You MUST make a journal entry! No comments. 

My 10 Facts

1) I'm weird. Yeah I know a lot of people are weird, but I'm a special type of weird.

2) I love Indie music almost as much as I love depressive black metal.

3) I feel happy when I'm surrounded by metaphorical darkness. I believe you can only see the light in the darkness, and when that light shines in the darkness, you are able to see the beauty of the darkness.

4) I'm pagan and very in touch with nature.

5) I read my tarot cards daily, it kind of keeps me grounded.

6) I'm unstable at the best of times.

7) I don't understand words the same way other people do. It's hard to describe, but every word has a shape or form in my head. It's not like the word computer looks like a computer in my head, the word computer actually looks more like a grungy wall texture with some french curls thrown in there...

8) I don't like reality, and don't really live in the same reality as the rest of the world, unless I have to. I prefer living in my own world. 

9) I'm a pure empath... I can feel what somebody is feeling even when they are only talking with me through IM's and siting on the other side of the world. It's what draws people to me. Everybody feels like they can talk to me, because I will understand. They just don't know why they feel that way.

10) I love children! Whenever we are out somewhere and I have my camera with me, when I see kids I have to take pictures of them. The parents obviously don't think it's cool to have a weird looking freak girl take photos of their kids, LOLZ. Hopefully I will have my own somewhere in the future. 

Jade's Questions

1. What is your most bothersome weakness or vice?
Weakness - my lack of consistency, but that's due to being bipolar and having regular cycles. I'm working on it though, making progress. 
Vice - I love my weed... but unfortunately weed fucks with my meds which in turn causes me to be inconsistent. 

2. What is your biggest wish for DeviantArt?
That they figure out a way to promote good art more. At the moment some works that get a lot of attention is very good, but we all know some of them sucks, but they have 500+ faves... purely because the person who posted it has brown nosed soooo many people and they are now more supporting the person than the art. I want this place to be about art. 

3. Chewbacca vs. The Luck Dragon from The Neverending Story . . . who makes a better pet/companion?
Lol, I'm going to go Chewie... Only because I have a Daschund who talks to me like Chewie talks. You know the rrrrrr sounds he makes. My dog does the same thing, and then I do it back at her. We can do that for hours. Have no fucking idea what she's saying, but shit it's a lot of fun!

4. Nerd, dork, or geek?

5. What is the coolest thing about yourself that you wish more people would notice?
I'm picky about what I want people to notice about me. Everything I want them to see, they do see. So I'm happy.

6. Be honest: What is your favorite guilty pleasure?

7. How did you meet the most important person (or dog) of your life?
I was wired as fuck on Cocaine and he was at the same metal show as I was. Me being on cocaine means I talked to just about anybody. But then when I started talking to him he totally did the game on me, and yeah... I fell in love... hard... Years later he has managed to get me out of all of my bad habits...

8. Is it truly better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all?
Yeah I do believe so. 

9. What have you always wanted to do but never thought you could?
Until recently it was to work with some semi-famous to famous people. I didn't think enough of myself to think it possible. But now I evidently don't think the same way anymore... I'm totally gunning for the big fishes now... 

10. How do you know me? What is our first memory as friends?
My first memory of you is that Compass art piece you did. I still love that one!! As friends, when you became my mentor...

My Questions

1. Do you feel old?
2. Snakes or Spiders?
3. Favorite color, and what that color means to you.
4. If you could be reborn in any era (pre-20th century), when and why?
5. Do you have a party trick?
6. Why is the raven like a writing desk?
7. I am standing with both feet on the ground in South Africa, looking down at the ground... In reality I am actually looking upwards when I am looking down, why is that?
8. Imagine this if you will; You see a apocalyptic wasteland, everybody is dead and the whole world is on fire. Everybody except for one guy, sitting underneath a tree, his hoodie drawn over his face. Why/how did he survive?
9. What do you think happens when we die?
10. Are you happy? Like really happy?
