This is mostly because I think we're in this to get to know each other and potentially get the gears turning again on what "social journaling" even entails -- it's been a long time for me, I know! So I mentioned on Twitter doing a little survey thing. Good conversation starter, maybe we can get to know each other a bit, plus it'll fill up a journal entry for ya, so why not?

Here are the questions so you don't have to c/p all my answers and get rid of them too!

01. Name You Go By:
02. Age:
03. Do you have pets?:
04. Talk about something that's currently worrying/bugging you:
05. Talk about something that's currently, on the other hand, making you happy:
06. Favorite song right now at this very moment:
07. What's your favorite snack?
08. Tell a story about your family.
09. What's your favorite movie of all-time?
10. Who are your idols?

01. Name You Go By: Vee! (you don't have to use the exclamation mark)
02. Age: 32
03. Do you have pets?: Yes, I have a wonderful kitty named Google.
04. Talk about something that's currently worrying/bugging you: I'm in a very weird place with my writing! I really want to buckle down on writing my big gay fantasy novel, and I'm really psyched for it, but the process of writing original stuff is very lonely and thankless. Having been entrenched in the world of fanfic and the instant feedback that comes along with it, I'm just finding it hard to believe anything is good. I've been really depressed about this over the last week tbh :/
05. Talk about something that's currently, on the other hand, making you happy: We're moving to Seattle in September and while that's not an immediate thing that's making me happy at this very moment literally... it's keeping me optimistic about this entire year, haha.
06. Favorite song right now at this very moment: This sounds so lame but I'm still digging "Pompeii" by Bastille and I sort of have a four-person idol dance choreographed for it, oop.
07. What's your favorite snack? Right now I'm fond of beef jerky but not because I like it, particularly -- because I'm still getting used to Adderall and it makes me nauseous/impedes my appetite, and beef jerky is an easy and quick way to get me the protein I need.
08. Tell a story about your family: My dad grew up living between not-very-good relatives, a not-very-good dad, and the Catholic orphanage, and a nun taught him how to ride a bike by putting him on a bike and pushing him down a hill. My dad learned when he was in his 40's that he wasn't an orphan at all at birth, but that his parents were too poor to have another child so they gave him up to the orphanage at birth, and his mom died shortly thereafter. My dad's story is pretty wild. :/
09. What's your favorite movie of all-time? Somewhere between Watership Down and Kill Bill
10. Who are your idols? Ayumi Hamasaki, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Akimoto Sayaka, Natsuo Kirino

OKAY GUYS POST YOUR OWN SURVEYS (I'm not going to STOP YOU from doing it in the comments but post a new entry so we can talk about YOU in your comments, yo!)
