I haven’t updated the blog in almost two weeks, so today I decided to answer some questions that had been sitting in my ask box for God knows how long.
Q: After having previously been in an unsuccessful long distance relationship, do you think it’s something you could do again?
A: Probably not. It was very difficult planning around each other’s work and school schedules. I mean, perhaps I could, providing that there’d be a set ending date to the distance and that the time spent in an LDR would be less than a year.
Q: What is currently stressing you out?
A: So, I was sort of in trouble with the law. On Friday, a pre-warrant notice for me was sent to my parents’ house, so they call me freaking out. I tried to call the Denton County Justice of the Peace to figure out what it was for, but the office was closed all weekend, so I had been spending the last two days freaking out. I went in this morning, and it turns out it was over an unpaid ticket I received in May. I have the whole situation taken care of now, but it was still giving me mad anxiety.
Q: What are you looking forward to in 2017?
A: In 2017, I will finally be graduating college, then moving to either New York or Los Angeles and breaking into the entertainment industry. Also, I plan on seeing The Weeknd in May, and I’m very excited for that. He’s one of my all-time favorite artists.
Q: If you could be anyone for a day, whom would it be?
A: If I could trade places with anyone for a full day, I would choose to be Kanye West. Like him or not, the man is a multi-talented artist, mogul, and entrepreneur. I would love to walk a mile in the shoes of one of the art industry’s most influential.
Q: What is one weird habit of yours?
A: To be honest, I have a lot of weird habits, however, I’m not willing to disclose all of them. I will admit that I do still like to squirt Elmer’s Glue on my hands, then rub them together to peel it off.
Q: Do you believe in the concept of soul mates?
A: I do. I believe that God (or whatever higher power you believe in) has someone made just for you. I know that sounds cheesy, but I feel it explains why my past relationships have failed. I also believe that everyone comes into our lives for a reason.
Q: Which fictional character do you most identify with?
A: I’ve been told by many people that I remind them of the titular character from Nathan For You, but I’ve also been told I remind them of Ilana from Broad City. Personally, I take either comparison as a compliment.
Q: Where do you like to go when you’re in need of inspiration?
A: Usually I’ll go to Uptown Dallas or Deep Ellum, sit in a coffee house, and I’ll just people-watch. Mainly, I’ll observe young professionals and how they behave, interact with each other, and carry themselves. It inspires me to work harder in school, get my degree, and network with potential post-grad employers.
Q: What is an immediate deal-breaker for a significant other?
A: Everyone is entitled to their preferences. Personally, I will not date someone who doesn’t keep an open mind, nor has any desire to better themselves as a person. I’m not really into the whole “Netflix and Chill” thing, so I can’t really date someone who doesn’t enjoy going out.
Q: Which country would you like to travel to?
A: Oh God, there are so many. I’ve been thinking a lot about China lately. My best friend’s parents went for two weeks this past summer, and they had a great time. I think the idea of being surrounded by a multitude of cultures, art, food and technology all while being forced to be cut off from social media is exciting.
If you have any questions, submit them here, and I’ll be happy to answer them in the future.
