Doing this meme going around · 3:56pm Oct 17th, 2020

Stolen shamelessly from TNAB and Jake. And I always got a kick out of doing these and learning more abut friends. Very nostalgic feeling to do one again.

1. What's the story behind your name?
My great aunt turned 100 the year I was born but she was from Wales so her first name was traditional Gaelic. My parents joked they wanted me to have a name I could spell in kindergarten so they gave it to me as a middle name and picked an easier to spell first name. I actually remember meeting her when I was five, she was very kind and incredibly flattered to met me.

Username is because I've had the nickname ferret since high school due to an almost uncontrollable curiousity and energy levels. I go from hyperactive to exhausted very quickly.

2. What's your relationship status?
In a semi-open relationship.

3. What country are you from?
Canadia

4. What do you look like?
long brown hair, brown eyes, glasses, kinda squishy and curvy

5. Do you consider yourself attractive?
Not as much as I am according to others. I've always felt my personality is my strongest trait but mental trubs do that to you.

6. How did you come across MLP:FIM?
I was browsing youtube and saw a music video of Rarity set to Sexy, Naughty, Bitchy by Tata Young. I was a big fan of original MLP (I had a cassette of the soundtrack to the movie) so I was intrigued by new pone.

The music video was cute so I looked up info and found EQD. I convinced my then partner and some friends to watch an episode with me since it was airing live the next day. It happened to be Applebuck Season and I was hooked. They watched as well to humour me but never got into it.

7. What is your favorite ship?
I don't really have one. I'm pretty openminded about ships and generally go with the attitude of 'convince me'. If the ship is written well, I'll enjoy it.

8. What is your least favorite ship?
Twilestia and Sparity tend to squick me a bit because of the extreme age gaps. I have seen them done well and I appreciate them, but they still tend to turn me away.

9. Have you told anyone outside the fandom that you like MLP?
My family knows and a bunch of my friends know. I don't hide it if someone asks. Being a girl has its perks I suppose

10. How has MLP changed your life?
So many ways. It gave me hope for kids tv, I met my best friend through MLP, Also my current partner. It helped me find good friends who helped me through some of the worst periods of my life.

11. Favorite MLP episode?
Probably Applebuck Season as it was the first one I ever watched.

12. What are your thoughts on superheros?
I never got into them to be honest. I've seen some of the Marvel films and they're good fun. But superheroes never felt like they were written for me, so I never felt very included.

13. Upon Dying, If You Had The Choice To Re-Live Your Life Or Live A Different Life, Which Would You Choose?
I honestly don't know. I'm a product of my experiences so changing them ostensibly means I'd then be someone else and I'm not sure how I feel about that. Also a lot of the negative experiences I've had were out of my control so it makes me wonder how different I'd be if I lived through them again.

14. Are you a good cook?
I'm pretty good. I enjoy cooking and experimenting when I'm feeling up to it. I love baking.

15. Do You Prefer That People Shoot Straight With You Or Temper Their Words?
I'm a wuss so I much prefer people be gentle with me. Being too straightforward and blunt can make me cry.

16. What was the last book you read?
I'm most of the way through 'Solutions and Other Problems' by Allie Brosh so let's call it that one.

17. What is the last movie you watched?
Probably Howls' Moving Castle but It's been so long since I sat down and watched a movie I'm honestly not sure. I mostly watch livestreams and youtube.

17. What's a song that may not necessarily be your favorite, but stands out to you?
Can't think of a good answer so skip.

19. What do you keep under your bed?
The charger for my laptop, the extension cord charging it, carpet and dust

20. On an average day, what's in your pockets?
Lip balm, my cellphone, one of my two vogmasks and my wallet. Right side has my keys and 3ds

21. Is a brand new car a goal for you?
I don't drive so no.

22. Dream job?
No idea, I'm not well enough to work so it's not in my thoughts.

23. Dream house?
Depends on my mood but it varies between a house out in the sticks with lots of nature and somewhere close to where I currently live.

24. Dream car?
I don't know cars ^^;

25. Do you have any pets?
I grew up with Irish setters but I love all sorts of dogs. Owned ferrets at one point and that was pretty fun too. Not owning a pet gives you a lot of freedom to travel and move around though so not sure I'd want one.

26. What is your dream pet?
I genuinely feel like I already owned my dream pet. My old dog Rowan. Every dog I've known since is just trying to meet those memories.

27. Do you own any weapons?
Unless some kitchen knives count, no.

Edit:
Oh wait, I own a recurve bow I can't shoot because it's righthanded and I'm left.

28. Is there a weapon you really want?
Guns make me uncomfortable so no there. I tried swordfighting and it wasn't for me. Archery was kinda neat and I want to get back into it when I'm better.

29. What religion are you?
I guess I'm a pagan?

30. Where would you like to travel?
I want to go back to Amsterdam. I was supposed to back in September but well, COVID happened.

31. If you could bring one person back from the dead, who would it be?
Hard to say. My knee-jerk answer is my Grandmother.

32. Are you political?
Yup, though I'm pretty unwell right now and mostly avoid political news outside of looking up the stances of candidates during elections. I tend to avoid politics in other countries anyways because it just makes me feel depressed.

33. What Is Something About Life That People Don’t Appreciate As Much As They Should?
Mental Health and therapy. Having any kind of good mental health is crucially underappreciated. Therapy is valuable even if you're head is fine because having someone to talk to is so helpful.

34. What Is Holding You Back From Being The Person You Want To Be?
Too many things. Skip.

35. How's your relationship with your parents?
Complicated. I love them dearly and they're big parts of my life but there's a lot of old damage that needs work.

36. Do You Prefer Stability Or Spontaneity?
Right now? Stability. When I'm well? Spontaneity.

37. What do you say when introductions are going around the room and you have to come up with an interesting fact about yourself?
Depends on who I'm with and what the group is like but my default is that I used to own ferrets

38. What type of music are you into?
I like anything upbeat and positive. I tend towards rock and pop but I like symphonic metal and hip-hop as well. I don't tend to like rap or anything depression sounding.

39. What should you do more?
Nothing. I'm doing as much as I can right now and that's good enough.

40. What should you do less?
Beat myself up.

41. What's getting you through the next week? Next month? Next year?
My friends. The knowledge that this too shall pass and things will get better.

42. What's the phone app you use most?
I don't own a smartphone. I spend a lot of time on my computer and when I go out I don't want to be online.

When I'm with a friend who lets me use his smartphone I like Neko Atsume, and Pocket Frogs.

43. Describe your best friend.
He's kind and funny and wickedly smart. Cliche but all true. He's got a degree in a semi obscure subject and I love learning from him.

44. How many screens do you own?
One cellphone, one TV I share with my partner, one laptop.

45. What's a joke you heard recently?
An Army recruit is chewing gum in formation. The Sergeant tells him to run to the end of the field and throw his gum over the fence. He comes back still chewing gum, but minus his rifle.

(Lifted wholeheartedly from TNAB)

46. Because of your experience, what do you know better than most people?
How to be comfortable with sexual situations, how to do therapy.

47. Do you usually follow your heart or your head?
My heart, definitely. I'm very impulsive and wish I was better about thinking things through.

48. Who is the first person you call when you’re in trouble?
Probably my partner.

49. Did you ever hurt someone's feelings just to hurt them?
Yeah. Not proud of it but I have. Part of that whole, impulsive thing.

50. How are you feeling today?
Feeling pretty okay. bit of a rough morning but it should be a good day.
