I haven’t done one of these in a while, so I thought… why not? I like these types of quizzes and questions, so here we go with a new 50 Quick Questions About Me.
1) What website do you visit most often?
WordPress, because that’s where my blog is lo…. oh. Well. Etsy, because that’s where I run my business from so I’m on there all the time… many, many times per day. Recreationally speaking? The site where I do storytelling and creative writing with my partner (not really what the site’s built for, but it’s what we use it for). Or it might possibly be Instagram if you include app usage.
2) What is your favorite quote?
Creative activity could be described as a type of learning process where teacher and pupil are located in the same individual. – Arthur Koestler
3) What song is stuck in your head right now?
4) Would you rather be transported permanently 500 years into the future or 500 years into the past?
If I get to maintain my current knowledge? The Past. Wait…. no. Was bathing popular in the 1500s. No. No it wasn’t. Future. Ew, no. I don’t like that either. I’m not sure I wanna know where humanity’s headed. I’ll stay where I’m at, I think.

37) Would you ever try space tourism if you had the money for it?
Oh hell no. The further away from soil I go, the more uncomfortable I become. Ive flown. Even did some skydiving and hang gliding. It’s not fear… I just don’t feel right when I’m not touching the earth.

Orange Creamcicle Ice Cream and Cheetos Puffs

41) If you had to lose one of your senses, which would you choose to lose?

Contact Gideon to let him know where to find me (he lives over 2500 miles from me), grab my sister and my cat (and possibly my best friend), pack up a few things and every bit of food I can from my place… and head north. Far enough north that dead things freeze in the snow and ice. Set myself up in a cabin or house that I can sustain long term and settle in.
46) What natural landmark would you like to see someday?
The Mariana Trench… from below, not above.
47) If you had to leave your country permanently, where would you relocate to?

Hooved animals. Clowns. Spiders.
49) What is your favorite plant or flower?
