Nickname: Ball Sports, Champ
Birthday: February 11
Sexuality: ehhh closer to straight on the spectrum but who knows/cares. I just see it as a fluid spectrum that I’m closer to one corner on and don’t worry about it too much farther than that
Time Zone: east coast time! whatever!
What time and date is it there: 3:49 PM on 9/15/14!
Average hours of sleep I get each night: if it’s a weeknight like 5-6. if it’s a weekend then like 10
The last thing I Googled was: taylor swift because I wanted to know when her new album releases because I really want to buy it (it releases on October 27th btw, I can’t wait!)
My most used phrase(s): um…. I yell “daft” when I’m frustrated (like in place of “damn!”, but occasionally I use it in a good way as well, like “daft, that’s cool”). I don’t really know what it means I just heard someone say it once and it just stuck I guess. people always think it’s weird but it’s so ingrained in my head now I can’t stop saying it
First word that comes to mind: chicken wings. honestly I don’t know why but literally when I try to come up with something random on the spot it’s always chicken wings. this is why my blog was titled “chicken wings are alright” for several months in 2012 because it was literally just a random thing I came up with in my head. and to this day “chicken wings” is still the first thing that comes to mind when someone asks me to think of something random. also I work at a chicken-based fast food chain now so that probably perpetuates it as well
What I last said to a family member: “No, but me and my friends are probably going to go around selling cupcakes for our theater fundraiser tonight” - My response to my dad when he asked me if I worked tonight
One place that makes me happy & why: the beach. I love going to the beach. my family owns a small condo at one of North Carolina’s beaches and it’s one of my favorite places!
also wal-mart at 3 in the morning is a really fun place. and waffle house at 4 in the morning.
How many blankets I sleep under: one! always just one
Favorite beverage(s): water, dr. pepper
The last movie I watched in the cinema: Guardians of the Galaxy and it was beautiful and awesome and kickass
Three things I can’t live without: love, food, music
Something I plan on learning: bass guitar! my friend devin let me borrow his bass so I could play around with it and pick up the basics
A piece of advice for all my followers: don’t base your decisions, your likes, your appearances, and etc. off of what you think other people will approve of. do what makes YOU happy, and stick with the people that love you for that. I used to stress so much about doing what I thought people I looked up to that I wanted to like me would expect me to be like and I repressed parts of myself I liked but was embarrassed of. but looking back, that was stupid. do what you love and stick with the things you like. and the people that matter will love you for who you are. that’s one lesson I had to learn the hard way but I’m so happy I have so many people in my life who love me for who I am and who care for me no matter what. I treasure them more than anything.
You all have to listen to this song: I really like the song No Song Unheard by The Hellacopters. I found it because Tite Kubo mentioned it in the back of one of the earlier Bleach volumes and I looked it up and I loved it. I’ll probably look up more songs by the band soon because I really like that one.
also Taylor Swift’s new song Shake It Off because I love it so much
and Jukebox the Ghost’s new song The Great Unknown because it’s a great song that connects pretty closely with my feelings
My blog(s): well this one is my only active one, unless you count my secret super personal blog that I only post on like once a month (if you’re interested in that you can message me and I’ll possibly give you the URL but also no guarantees because it’s very personal stuff), but past blogs I had were effyeahmspaint which I ran with Teejay, beetamer which was a silly joke blog about bees (I’m still bitter that I was onto bee movie humor before it became big on tumblr and nobody liked my bee blog), a blog for an adventure-time related youtube channel I used to run with two good friends of mine before the workload of editing two 10-20 minute videos every week got to me and we weren’t able to keep up with it, and a bunch of saved urls and old seasonal urls
I tag: I feel weird tagging people in games and stuff (it’s just a personal thing) so I’m not gonna do this but if you want to do this then you’re welcome to! anyway who wants to be tagged is tagged. that’s what I’m saying.
i’m the guy who shoots the bullet through the CDs to make the hole
divorce is like one of the saddest things in the whole world to me probably because two people dedicating their lives to each other out of love is literally the sweetest and most honorable thing i can think of today i saw a billboard for a divorce attorney and it made me sooo sad i was like where has the love gone
