do you think whoever was designing the default netflix avatar made a mistake somewhere but just sat there laughing at the result for so long that the whole design team decided to keep it

sorry but i’m erasing the rules :)

Your questions *evil cackle* :

1) What is something you are afraid of?

sleeping alone in a real dark room. which sucks because i know i don’t get enough melatonin and all that. 

2)Have you ever laughed so hard you cried?

yeah, mostly with my friend elanor. i love her too much. 

3)Do you haz tumblr crush?

agrarian <3

4)Favorite vegetable?

omg that’s hard. the image that popped into my head was a giant raspberry but that is not a vegetable. i would say butternut squash or acorn squash. (fall i hear u) 

5)Top goal on your bucket list?

to live in a home with a huge yard, with a garden and wildflowers and a really nice guy that doesn’t care if i make shitty fried eggs. 

 6)Something that you are proud of overcoming?

the little voice in my head that tells me i suck. (it’s still there, i just have gotten better at muting it)

7)Current favorite song?

two small deaths, wye oak. (thanks, luke)

8)What is the meaning of life (i have selected YOU because i have determined your expertise on this matter)?

i don’t know. it’s impossible to put into words. “life” is bizzare-o. it has a lot to do with waking up everyday and deciding what is going to drive you, and i would hope that those things are all healthy. relationships, food, how you spend your free time, etc etc. i think that sharing yourself with the world in your own way is amazing and beautiful. creativity is important and loving people is important. believing that God’s got my back has helped a lot. live lightly.

9)Would you rather succeed in life or find truth?

truth. all the way. i don’t know what it means to me yet, to succeed. i’m still figuring that out. but i would rather have honesty tear me apart then to be “successful” and lied to by whatever it is. 

10)Favorite artist?

omg. i have so much respect for musicians/architects/designers/gardeners/etc. that take their work seriously and pour themselves into it. that’s so beautiful to me. some musicians i like are: coldplay, justin vernon, amos lee, jack johnson, jose gonzalez, grimes. honesty is so attractive. 

11) Any advice for us?

listen to your inner voice. it knows the best route to take. be gentle with yourself. also don’t shush yourself. there’s someone out there that wants to know how you’re doing. there’s someone that gets up every morning, because you are alive. live for them.
