Hey look, I am alive. Sorta.

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 2, 2014, 8:30 PM
  • Mood: Tired
  • Listening to: Acid Black Cherry
  • Reading: The Fellowship of the Ring/Prisoner of Azkaban
  • Watching: Markiplier - The Killings in Aldstadt
  • Playing: Shadow of Mordor/The Evil Within

So, I finished NaNoWriMo with 100k+ words. Halfway through the month I decided to double the goal which caused me much stress at the end but I still did it and finished a day early. That being said, I'm rather burnt out. There are many changes coming my way in the next few months and finding the strength to cope with them is exhausting.

So I'm choosing to focus on art/Christmas right now. I'm not doing much for Christmas this year, I don't have the energy or the finances, sorry. A few friends I'm going to do some stuff for, I wish I could draw for everyone, but I can't. Plus three of you have december/january birthday, stop it! Yeesh. 

Across the Universe will still be updated, I just got caught up in Cursed for NaNo. Cursed is going to get finished before I start any other Fics though, so In the Blood and Night Terrors will have to wait until then. I will, however, work on Echoes because it's already 1/3 done. Just so you know I will be splitting Cursed up into "mini" novels! When I self publish it, there will be 8 parts. The first one will be free and the next ones will be like... a dollar each! Support an author for only a dollar, woo! I hope that my friends will at least spread the word if not read the novel. I'm nervous as all hell, but also excited.

Did I miss anything on dA? I'm sorry if I did.

Also, SilverGoddess666 tagged me for this meme dealie so I just spent an hour of my life doing that. Lol. I never get tagged for stuff, so yay!

1. Who was the last person you held hands with?

My niece while I was walking through the parking lot with her to make sure she doesn't get hit by cars.

2. Are you outgoing or shy?

I'm an introvert. It depends on the situation/environment.

3. Who are you looking forward to seeing?

My sister who lives down south and my friend who lives in CO!

4. Are you easy to get along with?

Oh yeah, I'm super easy going.

5. If you were drunk would the person you like take care of you?

By like you mean, like... a crush? Naw, I don't do that. Would Dean O'Gorman, Robert Downey Jr, or Gerard Way take care of me? I'd hope so, they seem like nice people.

6. What kind of people are you attracted to?

Not-pretentious people. Like what you like, don't judge others for it. Also I like facial hair? It's become a real problem. Also well toned arms? I have problems. Real, real problems.

7. Do you think you’ll be in a relationship two months from now?

Definitely not. Beginning to realize that my general lack of interest in relationships is my state of being. I am what they call "aromantic"

8. Who from the opposite gender is on your mind?

Markiplier, but only because I'm watching him play a game while I type this.

9. Does talking about sex make you uncomfortable?

Depends on with who. It used to when I was a kid but now it doesn't. As long as I'm not related to you we can talk about vaginas and penisi all day long. 

10. Who was the last person you had a deep conversation with?

My friend Crystal. If by deep you mean we made jokes about killer cicadas, then yes, it was quite deep. (that's what she said.)

11. What does the most recent text that you sent say?

"It's alright, just annoying." I am being harassed all over social networking by someone who can't take a hint, so my sister was apologizing for no reason.

12. What are your 5 favorite songs right now?

Right now?

Acid Black Cherry - Shoujo No Inori III
Queen - Keep Yourself Alive
Paul McCartney & Wings - Bluebird 
Dire Straits - Romeo and Juliet
Senses Fail - Lungs Like Gallows

I listen to... pretty much everything. Right now I'm mostly listening to ABC...

13. Do you like it when people play with your hair?

No, I don't like when people touch my hair/face/skin. Do you know how many oils you have on your hands? Do you? I don't want it on me. I have enough of my own oils, thank you very much.

14. Do you believe in luck and miracles?

I believe in miracles... where ya from? You sexy thing~ I believe in luck, not miracles.

15. What good thing happened this summer?

I... don't know? It was a rough summer.

16. Would you kiss the last person you kissed again?

Probably not.

17. Do you think there is life on other planets?

Yes, I do. The universe is so vast, how can you possibly rule it out? Then again, I do not believe they're making contact with earth. So silly.

18. Do you still talk to your first crush?

Actually, yes, I do. He's a cool dude.

19. Do you like bubble baths?

I love them... probably because my mom never let me take them as a kid.

20. Do you like your neighbors?

One's getting divorced and they're both terrible people, the other ones are pretty chill though.

21. What are you bad habits?

I'm pretty perfect in every way, alright? No, I'm just kidding. I have OCD so I have quite a few bad habits but I won't bother getting into that. I start things and don't finish them. I over-think in the worst way. I tend to think people don't want to talk to me/aren't interested. It's pretty bad. 

22. Where would you like to travel?

I have grandiose plans. I'm going to travel to Osaka for a week and then live in New Zealand for a year at the very least. Someday I would like to live in Paris for a week and simply be an artist. Also, I would really like to do the haunted tours in Romania!

23. Do you have trust issues?

I guess. I don't know, I never really thought about it.

24. Favorite part of your daily routine?

Coffee. Being left alone to be creative at night.

25. What part of your body are you most uncomfortable with?

My boobs. They are dumb. Dumb!

26. What do you do when you wake up?

Procrastinate on having to deal with everyone else as much as I can. Text people who like me.

27. Do you wish your skin was lighter or darker?

I wish I was a little darker, but it is not in my genes for that to be so.

28. Who are you most comfortable around?


29. Have any of your ex’s told you they regret breaking up?

There was only one, and I don't care if he does or not.

30. Do you ever want to get married?

I don't know. I don't really care about that kind of stuff. I guess sure if someone I'm really comfortable with wanted to then I wouldn't say no, but it's not on my "to do" list.

31. If your hair long enough for a pony tail?

My hair is so long, you don't even know.

32. Which celebrities would you have a threesome with?

RDJ and Dean O'Gorman. Yes please.

33. Spell your name with your chin.

I am not doing that.

34. Do you play sports? What sports?

I don't mind sports. I used to be good at them. Always liked basketball and baseball.

35. Would you rather live without TV or music?

TV. I would probably not watch it at all if I didn't live with people who are addicted.

36. Have you ever liked someone and never told them?

Oh yeah, plenty of times. Which is okay, because I have literally zero romantic aspirations.

37. What do you say during awkward silences?

"Sooooo... you like stuff?" or nothing.

38. Describe your dream girl/guy?

Your mom. 
No, I guess I've never thought about it. I like scruffy/fuzzy guys. Not too tall... honestly, I guess I have a "type" but I don't discriminate. 

39. What are your favorite stores to shop in?

I walk around Target quite frequently... Barnes and Noble? I don't really enjoy shopping.

40. What do you want to do after high school?

Hi, my name is Talia and I'm 29?

41. Do you believe everyone deserves a second chance?

We're all human, we all make mistakes. It depends on what was done, I suppose.

42. If your being extremely quiet what does it mean?

I'm thinking. I'm always thinking. It's really bad. Please stop me.

43. Do you smile at strangers?

Ladies, yes. Men, no. Women take a smile and go "aw that was nice" men take it as flirting which I was most definitely not doing.

44. Trip to outer space or bottom of the ocean?

The ocean. Space is scary.

45. What makes you get out of bed in the morning?

The immense need for coffee.

46. What are you paranoid about?

That I'm annoying. That I'm never going to get anywhere in life. That I'll never be good enough at anything to be admired? I have too many thoughts.

47. Have you ever been high?

Contact highs are unavoidable at an Allman Brothers concert.

48. Have you ever been drunk?

Yes. I recommend it with family and friends.

A crowd of people stood and stared..."

Sleep pretty darling do not cry
