1. What is your personality type?
2. Are you male or female?
3. What country do you live in now? What country are you born in?
The U.S. of A(rrogant assholes, mostly).
4. What cultural background are you?
I don't really get this... I'm from a lower-middle-class family in what would probably be considered the suburbs.
5. What religion are you? What religion is your family?
I'm a non-religious atheist, but I grew up in a Christian family (and believed/lived it passionately until I graduated high school, just about). I do kinda like the idea of Unitarian Universalism, but I don't really get how it's a religion. It just seems like a weekly club for chill people to get all deep and positive at. That's my kinda shit. xD
6. What career are you in or looking to be in? What are you doing right now to help you achieve this career goal?
I'm really not career-oriented. The idea of doing good for money makes me feel kinda weird, but the idea of doing work that doesn't mean anything to me is just depressing. So... I dunno, I'm hoping I'll be able to support myself as some sorta writer. But I gotta say the idea of running off to a hippie commune where we all take care of each other without worrying about economic shit appeals to me so much (minus the huge fear I have of it being a cult sorta thing, so, yeah I'm never gonna actually do that).
7. What is your friendships like with both genders? How many good friends do you have and why are you friends with these people?
I can be friends with people of any gender, but I feel like I can connect better with other trans (esp. nonbinary) people because, well, we have that in common. Also I'm generally more trusting of people who have similar experiences/feelings as I do.
My closest friends tend to be positive people who inspire me to be a better person, or to be myself, and so on. Also, friends I can laugh with are great.
8. What paranoias do you have?
I mean I'm pretty terrified of being sexually assaulted, so, there's that. I dunno if I'd call myself paranoid about it. Okay I guess I kinda am paranoid, like, I don't trust most cis/straight men right off the bat because, statistically, they're more likely to assault me than people of other genders/sexualities (not that other people don't ever do that).
9. What are your vices?
I wouldn't really say I have any. I mean, I'm not perfect by any means, but I don't feel like I have any one thing or personality trait about me that could be classified as wrong or immoral. I guess I have some issues with anger/vengeance, especially towards injustice (and those that inflict harm on others), but... I feel like I'm a pretty chill person, overall.
10. What are your fears?
I don't like the idea of not being liked by someone, so there's that. Like, I guess a worst-case-scenario for me would be a world in which everyone hated me/thought I was annoying, and I had no one to fall back on for support. I also have a fear of being wrong and/or making the wrong decision. And a fear of looking/being incompetent or not on the same level as those around me (intellectually or otherwise). I don't like the idea of being judged.
I think another fear I have would be that people aren't good, and that, no matter how hard those of us who want peace and whatnot might try, the world will be shit because some people just want it that way. (Ain't gonna stop me from trying to make it better, though.)
11. What is your relationship like with your parents? siblings (if you had any)?
Pretty fucking great, I gotta say. I mean, there's a bit of tension between my mom and I now because of religion, but... overall, I love my parents and we get along pretty well. My siblings... I feel like I'm not around them enough anymore, so I don't really know how our relationships are. But I feel like they love and care about me, and I do for them, so. I think we're good, and I hope we get closer as they get older (I'm the oldest, and I don't live with them anymore). I'd like to be able to confide in my siblings, and let them know that they can come to me with anything.
12. How are you with expressing emotion in public?
I dunno how to interpret this. Like, I don't like crying in front of people, if that's what this means. I feel like I am pretty expressive, when I'm happy, or even when I'm pissed off (perhaps especially then).
13. How do you think people saw you in high school? How do you think people see you now?
They probably saw me as a quirky & quiet. Though as the years went on and I got more comfortable being myself, I was probably a little less quiet, and a little more queer. I think that, at this point, I'm more secure in being who I am, and I'm less anxious (sort of, it's a day-by-day sorta thing). So, people probably see me as a friendly, warm, energetic, short-attention-spanned person? Hahah I dunno. Kinda wish they'd tell me, but I'm also afraid they'd say something negative, in which case I don't wanna hear it at all. :P
14. What do you see as the point to your life and life in general?
Let's just get right into it. Send me into another existential crisis, why don'tcha? Jesus, uh... I'm still figuring that out. I think that might just be it. I don't think there really is a point, inherently. I think it's something we each make for ourselves, as we live our lives. For me, personally, at this point, I think it's to be a good person, to inspire and encourage people however and wherever I can, and to do what makes me happy and feel the best with myself. So, specifically, that'd mean writing stories that will (hopefully) change lives for the better, and working on my self-confidence and expression and all that. And just living in the moment and enjoying as much of it as I can.
