I’ve been dealing with some serious blogger’s block lately. The root cause is my inner critic’s need to constantly remind me about how much I suck at everything, and I’m not quite sure how to shut her up again, yet. I truly am my own worst enemy most of the time… Anyway, while I struggle to find some coherent words, the cupcake-mass-producing, machete-wielding, expert-book-reviewing, and all around awesome blogger cupcakesandmachetes was nice enough to nominate me for a Liebtser award-tag-blog-chain-letter thingy. I already did one way back when, but I think I’ll try to answer ze questions in a new post anyway! I’ll also try to keep my self-loathing to a minimum.
1 – Do you consider yourself an artist in any way when it comes to music, art, crafts, or hobbies?
Nope! I actually have no marketable skills AT ALL, and a very limited edu-ma-cation. I’m surprised and grateful I have an awesome job, honestly.
2- What’s your favorite type of music or your favorite band?
I enjoy any music that has a soul and inspires me, no matter the type (i.e., anything that’s not about slammin’ all yo bitches in da clubz, how stupid crunk yall wanna get, or how much better bling-bling yas ownz, and like yo yo… yos. Sup, dawgz????). Excuse me. Anyway, it’s really hard for me to pick any favs, though I’ve been listening to electronic music a lot lately. I like how it reminds me of video game themes, and the more obscure the artist, the more I usually like it. Here are some random samples of my overall terrible musical tastes:
3- What’s your favorite thing to do?
Play video games while pretending that everything is going to be okay! Everything. Will. Be. Okay… Right? Right?? Namaste.
4- Tell us something interesting about yourself.
I was born on my birthday.
5- Does blogging ever stress you out?
Not exactly. I don’t get stressed per se. It’s more like a nagging “why the fuck am I doing this and what is the meaning of existence??” kinda dark feeling that creeps up on me a lot. I love the community here so I’ll always be around spamming people’s interesting blogs with my likes and rambling comments. As for the future of my blog, I really have no idea anymore.
6- Do you like to cook?
Does boiling water count? If so, then no. Skeikah Plate is really inspiring though!!
7- What’s your favorite reading genre?
Is non-marketed and/or “written by an aspiring author who should definitely be recognized officially by a greedy publisher, dammit!” a genre? Truthfully, I’ve really had no interest in reading up until recently. My liking of it now is thanks to many great book review bloggers here on WordPress. Video games have been my number one form of entertainment since I can remember. Everything else always seemed pretty meh to me (TV and movies included). Where was I going with this again…? Oh yeah! I like reading fanfictions and other not officially “published” works the most. Here are some superb examples:
- Northern Lights by The Shameful Narcissist
- Posthoumous: A Dystopian Story About Houmous Gone Wrong by Mr. Wapojif
- I Will Call You Home: A Recounting of the Fifth Blight by AthenaTseta
8- Are you on Goodreads?
I sure am. Feel free to friend me if you’re desperate.
9- Do you like where you live?
Yup! See directly below for view from apartment window.
10- What kinds of foods do you like to eat?
Boring healthy things usually. That entire tub of Fudge Brownie ice cream I polished off last night was fabulous though. 😍
11- What’s your favorite season?
Fall. Even though that cranky bastard winter is lurking around the corner, autumn is so cool and refreshing. The hot sticky summer days are done, and all the trees around here turn nice colours.
That’s all folks! I tag whomever the hell wants to do this, with the exact same questions, because I’m super-lazy, uncreative, and ANY real human who read this is an awesome person who deserves to do whatever they want (the internet sanctioned spam-bot army that hovers here just makes me feel better about my view stats).
It’s on like Donkey Kong! On July 31st, be prepared to see my entry in the Adventure Rules Blogger Blitz event. Lightning Farron and I are going up against my incredibly talented rival, NekoJonez with Indiana Jones, in the Retail Rumble of the century. Two champions will enter. Only one can mass-produce and market one of their signature items the… best-est? (I’m already working on my loser speech! 🏳️)

Stay tuned! The contest rules with be posted on Adventure Rules this Monday.
Laterz peeps. If anyone needs me, I’ll be in original Thedas trying to stop the Blight. With my dreamily awkward knightly man Alistair, and my badass best friend Leliana both watching my back I cannot fail! (I’ll let you guess what game that is. See Twitter name for hint.)
I hope everyone has a fantastically happy week!!
