Golden Birthday


Since today is my birthday and my new paintings are getting listed, I wanted to do another short post mostly because I’m completely overwhelmed and want to just do something simple and fun to get my brain to relax for a few minutes, so I am going to answer the basic questions that generally get asked on a Q&A as well as some I randomly find on the internet now that I have a place for them to stay up.

  • On a scale of 1-10 how strict were your parents growing up?: 9.5
  • If you could go back in time, what year would you visit?: 1969 because I’m immature, but also the beginning of the 70s.
  • What’s your best childhood memory?: Living in Oklahoma and having snow every winter.
  • What is your biggest pet peeve that you wish you could get rid of because it hinders your enjoyment of life?: Hating loud breathing, chewing, smacking, or any other kind of noise the human mouth makes haha. It’s really hard for me to even listen to myself eat, let alone be around other people eating so I usually have to look away, distract myself, clear my throat, sniffle, discreetly cover my ears, or if it’s bad enough I have to walk away. I will start getting uncomfortable, grossed out and even angry if it persists.
  • If you had to flee the country where would you choose to live?: This is a trick question.
  • Do you think psychic abilities exist?: To an extent. I believe there is a very real kind of magic that exists in the world and I think the earth itself houses most of it. As far as psychics go, I don’t think anyone sees the future in a crystal ball. However, I do think there are people who are gifted at reading others and they can pick up on body language and reactions to the questions asked and I think those that are logical can use that plus their intuition to predict a very probable future for the person they are reading. I also think it’s possible to see things that will happen in the future, but I think they present themselves as day dreams or recurring thoughts. They don’t stop you mid track and give you a full vision of what’s to come like in That’s So Raven. At least that’s what I believe haha.
  • What was your favorite fairytale growing up?: Alice in Wonderland
  • Which pet made the most impact on your life?: Xena for sure
  • What event in your life would make a good movie? Ha all of it.
  • What food combination do you want to ban?: Mint and chocolate.
  • What makes a person beautiful to you?: Someone who just genuinely wants to make the world a better place.
  • What’s the weirdest thing you did as a kid?: I never had an imaginary friend, only imaginary animals.
  • What job do you think you were born to do?: The one I’m doing now.
  • Do you believe in coincidence?: I think coincidence can definitely happen, but I don’t think it happens often. I think things happen the way they are supposed to, but I also think everyone’s path can change depending on the person’s character development or lack there of.
  • What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?: I’ve never really gotten life advice, but someone once told me to never go to bed angry with a partner and I think that’s fairly good advice to live by. There is no reason a couple shouldn’t be able to talk through their problems and if they can’t do so, maybe that’s a good indication that it may not be right.
  • Even though you don’t want kids, did you ever have baby names picked out?: Lyric Eden and Noxx Rowan. I still love them both, but they are free for the world to use now haha
  • What accomplishment are you most proud of?: There are a lot of things I’ve done recently that I really am finally proud of myself for and most revolve around photography.
  • Do you feel like you are a follower or a leader?: I don’t like to be intrusive in groups, especially if I’m new, but if something is being done or needs to be done and no one is taking initiative, I won’t be afraid to do so. I get restless and I have to have a plan. I can’t just sit around and put something in someone else’s hands if I know it will affect me as well.
  • What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done?: Stood up for myself. I spent years letting people tell me who I was and being able to take control of my life and let people know who I really was took a lot of balls in my opinion. I knew I was going to lose most of the people in my life and I did, but I kept going.
  • When you’re having a bad day, what do you do to make yourself feel better?: I’m really bad at trying to make myself feel better with food haha
  • What’s your favorite cheesy pick-up line?: I kind of hate them all. When people are cheesy or corny it makes me really uncomfortable. I just don’t find it charming or funny and it’s hard for me to hide that, so I come off like an ass. I don’t like to lie to people to make them feel better if I know it’s going to bother me in the long run. I like to be very upfront so that things can be avoided in the future. Pick-up lines can be an instant turn-off for me, UNLESS you somehow pull out a super rare/original one that I’ve never heard before. Then I’ll give you props, but for the most part, I’d appreciate them never being used on me.
  • How long would you last in a zombie apocalypse?: I feel like I would fair decently. I think? haha I know how to shoot both a gun and bow and I used to box, so I might be okay defensively. I’m also somewhat handy with tools and I’ve been trying to learn more about plants and their real, medicinal properties, so I might actually be someone useful in the group haha maybe. I could also just say f it and off myself because I’m also terrified of the dark and I don’t like monsters and I just wouldn’t want to have to rebuild civilization at that point.
  • What “old person” things do you do?: Complain about my back 24/7, wear my pants up to my chest, stopped caring about my appearance, and take an acid reducer before I eat anything with red sauce. I also think most young people are heathens.
  • What did you think was cool then, when you were young, but isn’t now?: Slut shaming and church. They often went hand in hand.
  • If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question what question would you ask?: I would definitely ask about the afterlife or if there even is one. Not that the lack of one would make me change who I am or how I live my life, I still want to better myself just for my own earthly happiness with or without a final judgement day, but if there was any kind of potential of me being reincarnated, I’d start stepping my game up a little bit as to make sure I didn’t come back as a slug in my next life.
  • What is the most unprofessional thing you’ve ever done?: Didn’t show up for my last day of work. I wasn’t making any money and the drive there and back was almost an hour total, so I just didn’t go haha. It was super lame of me not to at least call, but I wanted to stay so far away from that job that I didn’t care.
  • What is something that most people learn about you only after it’s too late?: That I’m not a pushover and if you cross me in a way I feel has malicious intent, I will not think twice about removing you from my life forever. I don’t have any room for anyone who does not wish me well.
  • How many friends do you have on Facebook and how many actually mean something to you?: 333 and I’d say about 90% of them do! My Facebook is very private just for the purpose of staying in touch with close friends.
  • Which of your personality traits has been the most useful?: Being intuitive.
  • How important are strong family ties to you?: I don’t think anyone should “put up” with a person just because they are blood related. If someone is not good for your life, remove them. You get to build and create your own family in this life and those are the ties that should mean the most to you. People earn the title family based off of their actions, not their DNA.
  • What’s a movie you can practically quote from start to finish?: She’s the Man, Goldmember, The Little Rascals, and all of the Harry Potter movies haha
  • What fact amazes you every time you think of it?: The fact that cashews grow from a fruit and asparagus grows in literal stalks straight from the ground. Like so:
  • What is the best way the 1% could spend their money?: Probably any other way than how they do. I get traveling, I do. If I ever make it to the top, my personal play money will go towards travel, but material items? What’s the point? You want a Birkin for the status? Cool. Get one. There is no reason for any human being to have eight $40,000+ bags. I don’t care who you are or how much money you make, $40,000 could change someone’s life, but because we as “fans” or followers, idolize these people and their lavish lifestyles, they continue to spend their money on those things to impress us, their audience. I blame society a little more than I do them in all honesty because I’ve fallen into that trap as well. I’m not, not owning my lack of self control or frivolous spending habits, but there is a demand for celebrities to “flex” and show how much money they have. If they aren’t dripping in designer everything, then “they must be broke and flopping.” I think WE need to stop obsessing over their high-end lives and pay attention to the people who are using their money for good. It’s not about tearing others down because they post flashy things, but just ignoring those posts when they do so. Show them that being materialistic does not interest their audience. Then when you see them posting about giving back, blow that up. So what if they end up continuously doing good deeds just for the publicity? They are still spreading a more positive influence AND they are helping someone out whether their intentions are pure or just for show. We can easily help control how our world functions if we would just wake up and take the time to pay attention to what is really going on around us. Especially parents. PAY ATTENTION TO WHO YOUR CHILDREN ARE WATCHING ONLINE. I cannot stress that enough. There are entirely too many famous people with questionable characters. Specifically on YouTube and Instagram. As far as what the 1% can do, there are numerous things they could do that would feel like giving away literal pocket change to them. Pick a random student who comes from a lower-income family and pay for their college tuition/student loan debt. Find a single mother working 2-3 jobs to support herself and her children and hand her five or ten grand so she can use it to get bills paid and get a little bit ahead. Pay off a widow’s medical bills. Help an unemployed veteran. Fund a halfway house or women’s shelter. Help an addict who truly wants to get clean by paying for their rehab. That’s just scratching the surface of helping individuals. They could also help repair roads in their city or even their state or poorer states or donate to public schools in lower income areas. Help after a natural disaster. It is not hard to make a tremendous difference in someone’s life with a sum of money that the 1% could wipe their ass with and not miss. Most people who get “hand outs” like that never actually expect them to happen again and they use those as opportunities to better their lives, not just get lazy. They know that will probably be the only help they ever get. They aren’t going to waste that unless you do just hand it to someone with no drive, but typically when you show humans you have faith in them by helping them, most don’t think “okay I’m set, now give me handouts until I die.” Most think, “this is my time to act and I’m going to make sure I don’t end up back where I was.” This topic is actually something that really bothers me and that I’m very passionate about. Along with celebrities and their extravagant spending, most people in the south are Republican and I was always given the “Do you want to get up everyday and work hard for your money just for the government to take half of it and give it to junkies or people who abuse the system and buy lobster and steak dinners with their food stamps?” Also coming from someone who was on government assistance at one point. It was an argument I could never win because I didn’t know anything about politics. Now I do and can say, that yeah, thats exactly what I want to do. Most people who need assistance aren’t abusing the system the way people say they do. I absolutely want to spend the rest of my life working myself to the bone in hopes of being able to have surplus money that I can use to help someone else in need. I now know what it’s like to have next to no family, to be completely on your own, to worry about losing the roof over your head, all while getting next to no sleep because of the amount of work you have to do just to be able to scrape by. I’m not lazy and I’m not even an addict anymore, but this is the first time in my life I’ve had no money and no help so, I understand what it’s like to suddenly be put in a really tight spot and feel helpless. It’s an awful feeling and I know I won’t be here forever, but it’s going to take me years to get ahead and I know what that has done for my mental and physical health so, one day I want to have the means to help someone avoid what I had to go through. But that got way off topic and was super long, so I think we can stop it here for today haha

I hope you all have an amazing week and don’t forget tonight’s drop will be at 6:53PM CST! My etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/GingerWessonArt
