Mood: GOTTA WORK BUT WELP....
I've been tagged by elricbrothersfan! Whoa diggity. I guess it's questionnaire time on theO. :V
1. Cats or dogs?
This is my favorite species of animal.
(Real answer: Cats over all, but puppies are really cute. Especially fluffy ones.)
2. Have you ever typed out "hello" on a 4-function calculator?
Yeah, I used to do that all the time in elementary school, and show off to my friends my SKILLS. And then I'd try to make other words. Maybe. Idk, my memory is pretty sketch. But yeah, I've done that. :V
3. Do you have a favorite item of clothing? What is it and why is it your favorite?
HMMMM.... I really like my white collared shirt. :^D SO VERSATILE, IT IS! But I bought a whole ton of new collared shirts from H&M this summer, which are all pretty sweetdiculous. I met some dude on campus who came up to me and was like, "Hey, I have that shirt! Cool." So maybe that's my magic friend-making shirt. :^D
4. Your guilty pleasure anime/manga?
AN ANIME OR MANGA THAT I FEEL GUILTY FOR LIKING.... Idk, I like my anime and manga pretty honestly! *u*; Idk, I'll get back to this.
5. Five random facts about yourself that nobody knows?
THIS IS HARD. IDK WHAT THE REST OF THE WORLD KNOWS ABOUT ME...!!! I'll just do some facts (?) about my OCs that I've never mentioned before. Because that's... similar, right....
(answer: no it's not.)
1) Even though Gabe doesn't have an official last name, I kind of internally imagine his full name to be Gabriel Duncan. This is entirely because I used to watch a lot of Good Luck Charlie on Disney Channel...
2) I've been subconsciously drawing Noland left handed. ???? SO I GUESS HE'S LEFT HANDED?
3) Noland's first kiss was when he was 18, with a girl in his pre-calc class. Noland's second kiss was when he was 22, with Stefan.
4) Stefan doesn't know how to change a diaper.
5) Chrystal's mom died from lung cancer when she was around 4 or 5. She lives with her dad, an artist.
6. If you almost accidentally ran your first crush over with a shopping cart in the grocery store, what would you say to them?
Sorry dude-- oh wait, no one was there.
(I don't think I've had a legitimate crush before, ahaha;;;)
8. What is your favorite movie genre?
Slice of life! If it wasn't obvious from the fact that I generally gravitate toward making slice of life stories/characters... But in general, I just like movies with interesting characters.
9. Frozen yogurt or regular ice cream?
HM... Overall, probably ice cream. But Tutti Frutti's strawberry yogurt is pretty dang tasty. :9
10. How good are your foreign-accent-imitating skills?
Actually, is "granny voice" a foreign accent.......
11. Did you notice there was no #7?
I accidentally read this question first whenever I was copying and pasting it, so...
NO TIME FOR MAKING QUESTIONS, GOTTA DO HOMEWORK;;;;
Mood: Full of sushi. :V
I have time before class, so why don't I do that doggone questionnaire that everyone seems to b doing.
Would You Rather
Pierce your nose or your tongue? My nose, because I want to be able to taste things using a fully in-tact tongue. :m And a nose piercing seems easier to take out (ie: not wear).
Drink whole or skimmed milk? Whole, but I'll drink pretty much any cow milk. WHY DO YOU NEED MY MILK-RELATED DIETARY HABITS, QUESTIONNAIRE.
Die in a fire or drowning? Fire, because I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU SAY, DROWNING DOESN'T SEEM PEACEFUL... I mean, neither does fire, but trying to breath under water is giving me freaky images.
Okay, no more dying questions, right...
Spend time with your parents or enemies? My parents! I like spending time with the both of them, since I don't get to do so that often.
Simple or complicated? Idk.
Straight, gay, bisexual, other? Straight.
Tall or short? RELATIVE TO PEOPLE I KNOW... I'm usually pretty tall. I'm a little under 5'8, I think.
Right handed or left handed? Right handed. :V I tried to learn how to write with my left hand, and...
A lover of music or a lover of books? I don't really read, so I'll say music.
Do You Prefer
Flowers or sweets? Sweets because WHO EATS PLANTS, RIGHT...
I, uh... don't eat vegetables or fruits, generally...;;;
Grey or black? Black. BY THE WAY, a weird thing I was thinking about when I was answering this question is that you can make black into grey by adding white (obviously), but you can't turn grey into black because no matter how much black you add, there will still be that amount of white that was in the original grey.
Which annoyed me a lot in high school art class because I hate mixing paint. orz
Color photos or black-and-white photos? Color.
Sunrise or sunset? Regarding which is more beautiful, I don't really have a preference. I guess I prefer sunrise because it means the day is starting, whereas sunset indicates that I HAVE TO DO ALL MY HOMEWORK WHAT HAPPENED--
M&Ms or Skittles? Skittles. Generally, I prefer artificial fruit flavored candies... unless its caramel, or something. :V
Staying up late or waking up early? Staying up late. ;U;
Sun or moon? The sun because THE SUN IS THE ULTIMATE. MOON YOU ARE A MERE ORBITAL ROCK WITHOUT SUN... Actually, the moon's pretty cool, too. I often think it's bizarre that the sun is always there but you never can look at it without VISION-RELATED CONSEQUENCES... One time on this line of thinking I freaked out and thought "DO WE EVEN KNOW WHAT THE SUN LOOKS LIKE?" And then I realized we have cameras or whatever.
Winter or Autumn? Autumn, because I am not an icicle.
10 acquaintances or 2 best friends? Two best friends, which is probably what most people are picking...? I guess the benefit to 10 acquaintances is you have no obligations to them.
Rainy or sunny? Sunny. THE BEST THING ABOUT SUNNY DAYS IS that I can stay in my room and draw without having to turn on my lights. /lame
Vanilla ice cream or chocolate ice cream? Vanilla. I've come to accept the fact that I don't actually like chocolate all that much. NOT THAT I DISLIKE IT, BUT... usually vanilla's better.
Vodka or Jack? Jack, because Jack can be a person and maybe me and Jack could be great friends.
Though I guess Vodka could be a name, as well... maybe... somewhere. :m
I don't drink alcohol.
I'M TRYING SO HARD TO MAKE AT LEAST SOME OF MY RESPONSES MORE INTERESTING FOR YOU TO READ.
What time is it? 2:56 PM. I've got class in 34 minutes!
WHATEVER KASA (who I stole this from so I'm basically going through all her responses as I do this) I WILL BE MY PSEUDONYM ON THE INTERNET FOREVER. Or until I'm 30, and then I can change my name to Stefan and...
Nicknames? Moon, Moon-chan, Aki, Aki-chan, etc...
When is your birthday? April 25th.
What do you want? To finish typing responses in this questionnaire. THIS WAS A BAD IDEA... TYPING TAKES SO LONG. orz
How many kids do you want? Zero, one, or two are all fine numbers for me. :m
What would you name a girl? I don't know. orz After naming my character Prudence, I've actually kind of come to like the name. Though I think my daughter would dislike that, haha. I wouldn't mind being named Prudence, at this point.
What would you name a boy? SOMETHING WITH LOTS OF SYLLABLES. Uh... DMITRIUS. I didn't pull that name out of thin air, actually.
You want to get married? Yep. Marriage isn't a big concern of mine at the moment, though.
What kind of music do you like? Whatever my dad listens to, whatever my mom listens to, and whatever other stuff I picked up along the way. :V /vague
In general, I like 70s and 80s rock/pop. BUT ALSO. I remembered that I really like certain disco songs. (???) Not all disco is created equally, though.
Le Freak. You ain't doing it for me.
Got To Be Real. I dig that.
Nervous habits? Acting like I'm looking at my watch when I'm really just trying to do something to distract myself, not looking at peoples faces when I talk/they're talking...
Are you double-jointed? Nah.
Can you roll your tongue? Yah.
Can you raise one eyebrow? Nah. I think I move my eyebrows a lot when I talk, though. :m
Which shoe goes on first? THE FIRST ONE THAT I SEE....? That's usually how it goes.
Ever thrown something at someone? Probably at some point. OH. Fruit snacks at Kasa. But that was more like throwing to her...
On average, how much money do you carry with you? Whatever I haven't spent. 8D
What jewelry do you wear? A watch.
Do you twirl or cut spaghetti? Twirl. I'M GOING INTO BORING MODE WITH MY ANSWERS.
Have you ever eaten Spam? Yep. Not bad.
Favorite ice cream? Cookies and cream. Dawg.
How many kinds of cereal are in your cupboard? NNNNONE... I don't really eat cereal, these days.
Car ride? LAST SATURDAY, I TOOK THE BUS TO STAPLES!
Song played? I suppose it's this, since I linked to it like two seconds ago.
Person you saw? Keyblademewkasa, who just left for lab. 8D
Time you cried? Idk, I can't remember. My eyes tear a lot when I draw digitally, but idk if that counts. 8D;
Fight? Can't remember that, either.
OKAY I'M DONE.
THANKS FOR READING.
NOW YOU ARE WELL VERSED IN AKIOHOLOGY. Idk if that sentence even made sense, but oh well.
Hey guys, Otakon was last weekend!! If you were wondering why I wasn't active last week, it was 'cause I was busy trying to make my Kjelle costume. orz I DIDN'T EVEN FINISH EVERYTHING, BUT OH WELL........... Here's some pics of the costumes my sis and I made last week!
From left to right it's my little sister as Donnel, me as Kjelle, my older sister as Nowi, and my older sister's boyfriend as Owain. We're all from Fire Emblem: Awakening. I made my little sister's shirt and my costume, my older sister made her and her boyfriend's costume as well as my little sister's pants.
Since we were all FE characters, we showed up to the FE photoshoot on Saturday. *u*
My little sister did so great as Donny, btw. LOOK AT HER HILARIOUS POSE LIKE HE DOES... Everyone was crazy about her Donny cosplay, though. It was really funny. :,D
Idk, my older sister took this dramatic shot. Most of my costume pretty much deteriorated as the day went on... ;U; Most of the hot glue came undone, haha;;; I had to change clothes.
I didn't take too many cosplay pictures this year, but I DID SEE THIS AMAZING WALPURGISTNACHT COSPLAY...!
Pretty insane, yo.
Besides cosplay and buying stuff, I also met up with iiwi, from deviantART! We art traded, n' stuff, so I got SOME SUPER CUTE STUFF.....!!! ;U;
WAH CUTIE TOMATO AND COOL BUTT DARE. ;U;U;U; Idk where to stick the Tomato sticker, yet, but I'll find ~*~a special place~*~
Anyway, Otakon was super fun this year. *u* We met and talked with a lot of nice people, and saw some super neat cosplays. I'm plannng on going next year, as well. If you're going to be there, tell me so we can meet up! 8D YEAH!
Stolen from Kyle! :V
1: What is your name and does it mean anything?
Akioh’s not my real name, but it’s what I go by on the internet! :V I like to stay ~*~a mystery~*~. It doesn’t mean anything. I came up with it because I used to read the Akiko series in elementary school, and Akioh sounds sort of like Akiko. …Yeah, I’ve been using this pseudonym since elementary school… .u.
2: How long have you known your best friend?
I don’t really have a best friend, so…
If I had to choose, I’d say my best friend is my older sister, who I’ve known since BIRTH. WOOHOO.
3: What position do you normally sleep in?
Idk. I move around a lot when I try to get to sleep, because my legs and arms always fall asleep. orz
4: Were you a part of any “clique” in high school?
Not really. I had a grand total of two people who I was good friends with, and a handful of other friends. Idk what “cliques” they were in. I guess one of my good friends was sort of popular and mainstream, and my other good friend was sort of quiet and borderline “goth”.,,????? IDK. I surprisingly didn’t hang out with the quirky anime/manga/video game group, but idk if I would’ve fit in there, either. That group was surprisingly extroverted.
BUT WHATEVER, HIGH SCHOOL……
5: Who was your favorite teacher in high school and why?
My favorite teacher was probably my 11th grade history teacher. She was very nice, funny, and seemed like a genuinely good person! I’ve had funny teachers, before, but idk if it’s just the place I live or not, but most funny teachers are funny through sarcasm and borderline insults. She was from out of town (?) and had a really refreshing sense of humor! I was also impressed that she had the skills to engage a class of 16 year olds in American History lectures. :V
6: Do you wish to travel a lot?
Nah. I’m not really one for traveling. It makes me feel like I don’t know what time it is or that I’ve lost a lot of time due to the car ride/plane ride/whatever.
7: Did you participate in any sports while in school?
Nah. I did a grand total of two extracurricular activities in my high school life: full orchestra afterschool in sophomore year, and (mainly obligatory) art honors society in senior year.
8: Show a sample of your handwriting:
Read my comics for some beautiful samples. :^D
9: Have you ever given blood?
Nah. I remember I had blood taken for some medical thing, one time…? But that’s obviously not the same. I’m a real wimp when it comes to stuff, so I probably would not enjoy having my blood taken, either.
10: Do you like the way that you grew up?
Yeah. I think I lived a pretty diverse life! :M Whatever that means.
11: Do you like your siblings? Why or why not?
I love my sisters! I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned, but I have an older sister (who’s on theO under the username afterglow) (yeah she’s that weird lady who always leaves me crazy comments) who recently graduated from college, and a younger sister in high school. They’re really funny and nice people, and my family, so YEP.
LOTS O’ LOVE UP IN HERE.
12: How did you meet your best friend and why did you become friends?
One day, I was born. My older sister was there. So I said, “wahh,” because I was a baby.
13: Name one movie that made you cry.
HM… I cry pretty easily, so I thought this would be easy… BUT… hm. I know I cried when I watched the end of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas and The Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but that’s just it. I’ve only seen the end of those movies. *u*;;; I also cried during the Twilight Zone episode, “Time Enough to Last,” but that’s not a movie. I probably cried after watching Awakenings, but I don’t really remember.
14: Do you prefer to read poetry, write poetry, or neither?
Probably neither, but if I had to choose, I think I’d read poetry. I’ve written poems for school and attempted song lyrics before, but it’s not something I think I have a knack for. Though I do kind of like writing it, ‘cause it’s kind of fun to play with the rhythms of words and stuff. :V
15: Things about someone that you find attractive?
Idk. Being not mean is nice.
/a great and logical sentence
16: What song are you currently listening to?
NOTHING… I was listening to the Rurouni Kenshin theme, because my sister and I are watching it. :V We used to watch it when we were younger, but not really understand it. So maybe now that we’re OLD AND CAN UNDERSTAND STORYLINES we’ll actually get it.
17: Have you ever broken a bone? If so, how?
18: A random memory from you childhood:
My earliest memory is eating a red crayon in a corner. I remember it tasted bad, but looked delicious. It is completely possible that I just made up this memory. IT FEELS LIKE IT HAPPENED, THOUGH…!
19: Where did you grow up?
Middle of the east coast, USA! In some suburb area. Very exciting.
20: What was the last thing you watched on tv?
Rurouni Kenshin! Surprisingly better than I remember, actually. :V
21: Do you think you’d make a good parent?
Maybe, I’m not entirely sure. I’m not really sure how to take care of infants and toddlers, so it’d probably be best if I did some research on parenting, first. And idk, I guess it’s up to my kid to decide whether or not I’m a good parent…? Not really sure. I’m usually not too bad with kids, though. (To my surprise, actually;;)
22: Would you like to meet any of your Tumblr friends in person?
I don’t have any friends that I know strictly on tumblr, but I’d like to meet some of them! :M And some of y’all from theO, too.
22: What was the last dream you remember having?
LAST NIGHT, I had this dream that Gabe was my uncle! And I had this weird new cousin that doesn’t exist who was quizzing me, Gabe, and my older sister about weird 90s facts. (???) And for some reason, one of the answers to some quiz question was “Sugar Ray” (like the band), and then I started making fun of Gabe for stealing Mark McGrath’s hair and what I am such a cruel niece.
I feel like this isn’t the first dream I had with Gabe in it. He kind of appears in my dreams more than my other OCs.
23: When is your birthday?
April 25th, 1995. :^D
24: How many pillows do you sleep with?
I like to sleep with a minimum of 3, but more is even better. *u*;; Haha.
25: Do you wear glasses? If so, how long have you been wearing glasses?
Yep. Apparently I wore them when I was a toddler, but I remember having to get glasses for distance when I was in 5th grade.
26: What color is your hair?
I say dark brown, but the majority says black. >:T
27: Name 5 facts about your appearance:
I have a nose.
I have a mouth.
I have brown eyes.
I have hands.
I have feet.
28: What is your favorite soda?
Dr. Pepper, or something.
29: What is a strange talent that you have?
I can do that clover thing with my tongue. TOTALLY USEFUL.
30: How’s the weather right now?
Cloudy, it looks like. Idk about the temperature.
31: Why did one of your friendships end?
HM… idk, usually friendships kind of fade out because I stop talking to people. Not intentionally, but just because I forget to or don’t instigate conversation or they don’t talk to me. Usually I don’t talk to people unless they say something to me first, which is also true with my friends. Idk, I’m not the greatest at sustaining friendships. Obviously, I could be better if I tried to be better about it.
32: Who do you miss right now?
I haven’t seen my grandparents in a while, and I’d like seeing my cousins on my mom’s side of the family… :o
33: Why did your last relationship end?
Because it never existed! 8D I’ve never been in a relationship.
34: Are you still figuring out who you are?
Idk, not really. I don’t feel like figuring out “who I am” was ever too important to me. Or maybe I don’t feel comfortable saying anything definitive such as “this is who I am,” nor do I want to.
/pretentious answer BUT HEY IT’S THE TRUTH
35: Have you ever been admitted to a hospital? Why?
Yeah, I had to get surgery once. :V
36: What is your favorite restaurant?
UH…. I LIKE THESE LOCAL RESTAURANTS… I’d say the name, but ~*~that’d give away my location!~*~
Not that you don’t already know where I’m at, aha;;; I get the feeling that my general location is pretty obvious, even beyond living in the mid-Atlantic area.
37: What is word that you always seem to spell wrong?
SO MANY THAT I CAN’T THINK OF RIGHT NOW… High school is one, which I always spell as highschool. But yeah, if not for google chrome, I’d be typo-ing it up. :V;;;
38: Would ever adopt kids?
Probably! I wouldn’t be surprised with myself if I adopt in the future.
39: What is your favorite kind of pizza?
CHEESE. I’m a great and boring individual.
40: What was your first thought when you woke up this morning?
“Wait, what was I dreaming about, I know I was dreaming about something…”
41: When was the last time you got really really happy and why?
HM… NOT SURE? Probably a couple weeks ago, watching fireworks with my family. I was doing great old man/lady voices with my little sister.
42: What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten?
UH… IDK… I’m not an adventurous eater. I like calamari, so… squid?
43: How do you start a conversation?
Usually don’t. BUT IF I WERE TO… HM………
Probably with, “So, uh……… [insert vaguely relevant topic]”
44: What’s a band you’ve been obsessed with lately?
Haha, idk. I always like Third Eye Blind, but I recently-ish realized how cool the Police are. I knew a fair amount of Police songs before, but then I listened to Ghost in the Machine because I didn’t know what else to listen to at the time. Pretty good album, in my opinion! :V
45: Do you come from a family “of money?”
Yeah, my parents are pretty well off. I’m probably the smallest spender in my family, but I’m apparently pretty un-frugal (?) with money compared to my friends.
46: Do you have a bucket list?
47: What is your favorite series of books?
I don’t really read, so Idk. I liked the Amber Brown and, as I mentioned before, Akiko books in elementary school.
48: When was the last time you laughed so hard your stomach hurt?
Can’t remember, but I just have a pretty bad memory. xD;
49: Where do you go when you’re sad?
On the computer, or in my room, or on the couch, idk.
50: 5 random facts about yourself:
MY NAME’S NOT REALLY AKIOH!
I’M RIGHT HANDED!
I’M FILLING OUT A QUESTIONNAIRE THING!
I CAN’T THINK OF A FOURTH FACT, RIGHT NOW!
I DON’T HAVE ANY PIERCINGS!
OKAY, YEAH, THAT TOOK LONGER THAN ANTICIPATED...
