Ten Random Things

Arra Abella over at Style Reader challenged me to answer ten random questions about myself. And unlike the last meme I posted, I’m actually answering them before whole months breeze by! Go me! XD

Anyway, here are my answers. If anyone else would like to participate, consider yourself tagged!

1) Two things that scare me: Butterflies and moths. *shudders* 
2) Three things I love: Halloween. Mythology. Horror stories. 
3) How I feel right now: Like a failure. 
4) A confession: I’m a polytheist. 
5) Something I fantasize about: Being good enough at art to live financially off it. 
6) Something I'm talented at: Panicking. 
7) My celebrity crush(es): Don’t have any. I’ve never even crushed on non-celebrities! 
8) An embarrassing moment: I’ve been told more than once how the girls I draw actually look like guys. 
9) Three things that annoy me easily: Dog-eared books. Spoilers. Sunlight. 
10) The reason why I started a blog: To promote my work and interact with fellow creative types in the blogging community.

  1. Oh, spoilers! I hate them so very much, Heather! It can be very annoying indeed.
    I have the same dream with you and with many people, obviously (living off our art) and I do hope that someday it may be true.
    Cheers to that!

    1. Right?! Spoilers are far too easy to come across anymore, thanks to the internet. Grr.

      Hope this dream comes true for you, too, Athina! I highly doubt it ever will for me, though...LOL.

  2. LOL @ Sunlight annoying you. Spoken like a true night owl. ;) Unfortunately for you, living in the land of abundant sunshine, you must be annoyed quite a lot. :/ I hate dog-eared books, too. I can't stand ANY 'damage' to books.

    I love these Heather-Fun Fact posts. Glad you were tagged! :D

    1. Oh, my night-owlness isn't why I hate sunlight, LOL. My eyes are incredibly light-sensitive, so even with sunglasses on, I still need to shield my eyes, the sun blinds me so much!

      And yeah, damage to books is always so grating. It's why I've grown more fond of ebooks over the years! Much less triggering for my anxiety, haha.

  3. Panicking is a talent? Bet in a field of butterflies, you're really good at it.
    And don't feel like a failure. You're still alive, so you haven't failed.

    1. I feel pretty talent-less, most of the time, but panicking is one thing I know for sure I excel at. LOL.

  4. Moths and butterflies? LOL. Though I'll admit, birds kind of freak me out. And pincer bugs. Definitely pincer bugs. *shivers*

    P.S. We all feel like failures sometimes, but just make sure you move on from that thought! Kind, talented people are not failures!

    1. Bugs in general scare me, but there's something about the wings of butterflies and moths that just...really wig me out. I've also had some awful experiences with moths, and there was that really bad nightmare of butterflies when I was a kid, so...yeah. Heh.

      As for feeling like a failure...I've felt like that for years, to be honest, so I can't exactly shrug it off. LOL.

  5. I doubt you can panic as well as I can. I should challenge you to a duel. :D

    I don't think the girls you draw look like boys at all! What the heck? Some people are nuts.

    1. LOL, challenge accepted! My level of panic is the stuff of legends... XD

      Yeah, people have told me my girls look like guys quite a few times over the years. I'm deeply insecure about it now. Makes it hard for me to work on art featuring girl characters, since that's all I end up hearing in my head...

  6. Would you still love a horror story featuring an invasion of butterflies and moths, or would that be too close to home? :) I don't recall meeting a polytheist before. It sounds interesting!

    1. I could probably handle a written story with them, but definitely not something visual, like a movie. Even seeing a photo of a butterfly pop up on Twitter scares me too much, LOL.

      Many polytheists keep quiet about their polytheism, since there are still a lot of judgmental people out there, unfortunately. So, who knows, you may have met one before and didn't know it! ;)

  7. I'm right there with you on the crushes thing. I never got the whole celebrity crush craze. I mean, anyone who is in the spotlight is probably so messed up you couldn't stand their actual company. (Unless they're an author. ;)

    1. Haha, yeah. I've never understood crushes in general, I must admit. I really don't get how someone can crush on anyone without getting to know them first, at the very least!

      Delete
  8. Butterflies and moths? Yup, I agree with Nick. You should definitely write a horror with them. Or draw! You're definitely not a failure. You're on #200. Holy crow. That's a lot of strips! And they're awesome. :)

    1. LOL, I'd never be able to draw a webcomic featuring butterflies or moths in any way. That'd involve looking at reference pictures of them! *shudders* I'd even turn down a simple commission featuring them, they're that horrifying to me...

      (Fun fact: I did have a webcomic idea once inspired by evil butterflies from folklore. But it will never see the light of day, 'cause...well, butterflies. Haha.)

      And there are a lot of things in my life that make me feel like a failure besides my art/comics. It's very hard for me to feel anything but worthless, a lot of the time!

  9. I'm very talented at panicking, too! I understand the butterflies and months fear, even though they don't scare me, I'm afraid of other things that generally don't scare most people.

    1. Heh, yeah, it's easy for me to feel weird having this fear, especially when it comes to butterflies, but at the same time, it's like...so many people are afraid of things like spiders. How is fearing moths and butterflies any stranger?! Glad you don't think I'm weird, at the very least!

  10. Great to know you a little better. And just think if butterflies and moths were the size of us. They'd be terrifying.

    1. I would most likely die of fright if that happened, haha! I once came across a moth that was big enough for me to hear its wings flapping, and that was enough to nearly send me to an early grave... XD

  11. Nice to know more about you through these questions. You are definitely not a failure. You are a talented comic writer, and don't you forget it!

    1. The universe keeps proving to me I'm a failure, though. LOL.

  12. I like butterflies and moths, but years ago I had about fifty tiny orange butterflies land on me while I was in a canoe in the middle of a lake in Canada. I freaked, but couldn't go anywhere. Finally, they all lifted off and that was the last time I wore bright pink while out in a canoe.
    And, it gave me an idea for a butterfly vampire story . . . :)

    1. OMG, I'd die of fright if that ever happened to me! *shudders*

      A butterfly vampire story sounds fun, though! Reminds me of some stuff I've read in folklore in the past... :)
