Birthday: 28th January
Gender: I don’t mind being called male, female or anything in between!
Sexuality: I don’t really know if there’s a word for what I feel like? Still trying to figure myself out, to be honest.
Time zone: GMT
What time and date is it there now: 11:23am 27/08/2014
Average hours of sleep I get each night: Ha. HA. HAHAHAH (I don’t know anymore).
OTPs: Outside of OCs? Uuh…I can’t actually think of any at the moment? I’m not engrossed in any fandoms, currently. I wouldn’t say they’re ‘OTPs’, but there are couples that I have a special fondness for, like Sasha and Milla from Psychonauts or Molly and Gus from Fargo.
Last thing I googled: Fuck if I know!
First word that comes to mind: MELONS
What I last said to a family member: Night, Mum.
One place that makes me happy and why: It’s hard to list just one place, so…I guess I like most places by the sea? Or water in general? I’ve grown up on the coast so, when I’m far from bodies of water for a long time, I pine after it. Back when I was at University, I used to miss the sea because I was cooped up in a dirty city. When I had the time, I’d grab a bus and just go to a little seaside town called Whitby. Instant relief.
The New Forest also holds a special place in my heart. I forever have a vivid memory of looking out the car window, staring across the heathlands whilst watching the rain pour down.
How many blankets I sleep under: Two! One proper duvet, then one fleece blanket on top.
Favorite beverage: I like too many drinks. Some favourites are ice cold water, rootbeer, strawberry milk bubble tea, strawberry & lime cider, gin & tonic and sangria.
The last movie I watched in the cinema: Guardians Of The Galaxy.
Three things I cant live without: It feels a little sad to admit, but I would be very unhappy without the internet and my computer. I use my computer for creating my art, so that’s important as hell. Also, without the internet, I wouldn’t be able to contact (or have met in the first place) most of my dear friends! The third thing? Uh…music. Music in general. Music fuels me.
Something I plan on learning: After Effects and traditional painting skills.
A piece of advice for all my followers: This is coming from the heart and personal experience, so I hope that this serves someone well.
If you hit rock bottom, you need to reach out to someone. I can’t stress that enough. You absolutely need to. When you’re that low, you haven’t the strength to lift yourself back up. You don’t have it in you to get on your feet again. The hole is too deep and you aren’t going to be climbing out of it on your own. But, you know what? That’s okay. It’s completely okay. There are some things in the world that you can’t go at alone - don’t let pride blind you. It might make you feel vulnerable, weak or inferior to be asking for help, but know that you are none of those things. It doesn’t make you worthless. It doesn’t mean you’re hopeless. It takes great courage and acceptance to admit to someone that there’s something wrong and that you need all the help you can get.
So, when you feel like the world can’t hold you anymore and the only way to escape is to die, reach out to someone - your relatives, your friends, a doctor, someone you trust - and let them be what holds you instead. They will help you to stand up again, so you can start climbing out of that hole. It’s not easy. It’s painful. The hurt and anger towards yourself doesn’t vanish into thin air but, I promise you, you haven’t failed.

Tagging: Most people I would have tagged have already done this/been tagged by others. So… I guess… no one?
