Cozy Questions Pt. 5

  1. If You Could Meet One Historical Figure, Who Would You Choose and Why?

My first thought on this was Nikola Tesla but I feel like he might be an intimidating presence and I am not sure what we would have to talk about. The meeting might be anticlimactic. Then I thought, of course, of Picasso who I have shared depression with. Upon further reflection, I have a completely different idea. It would depend on your definition of a historical figure but I would choose Harpo Marx. When I read Arthur Marx’ autobiography, I instantly felt connected to him. A quiet and thoughtful man, he was a good listener with a mind that was always working and he was overflowing with creativity. We had different paths in life. Harpo dropped out of school and entered show business as a performer. I graduated from college and entered show business as a designer, technician, and carpenter. He went from stage to screen. I went from stage to desk. Still, I think we are on the same wavelength.

  1. If You Had to Be a Teacher, What Subject Would You Teach?

I actually have been a teacher albeit somewhat briefly. I taught a few classes when I worked as a counselor for a summer camp. I co-taught Theater Design Theory, Set Design, and a couple more little classes. The teaching was difficult due to my social anxiety but also because my students were all teen girls who were more interested in flirting with one of the few males within miles and miles. It was awkward but the connections I actually made were rewarding. Still, I feel like I could do a better job now. I would teach creative writing probably. I know that I am not published but I feel like I could help spread the love of writing like teachers did for me. I write almost every day and I have done so for most of my life. That has to count for something.

  1. Describe Your Perfect Day

I am not sure such a thing exists but I imagine that I could come close. Watching a movie with my mother and family would probably be part of it as we relax and enjoy a good movie. I would also love to spend that time also writing. I would also love to play a tabletop roleplaying game with my friends which are always fun. I would finish by relaxing and playing some video games as I let my brain drift and relax. The day would also include really good food. Freshly made breakfast maybe Eggs Benedict, lunch from Maria’s, and a barbecue brisket feast for dinner. It is hard to squeeze everything that I love into one day but you could fit in enough to have a day in the top 10 for sure.

  1. Describe Yourself In a Sentence

A thoughtful yet loyal creative who loves a good story as much as he likes knowing he is helping.

  1. Who Makes You Laugh the Most?

My friends make me laugh the most. I first met them through tabletop gaming where I have laughed until I saw spots in my vision. I started gaming online with some of them but that did not last long, mostly because I am not a huge fan of MMORPGs but I did enjoy the community and there were plenty of laughs over TeamSpeak. The group moved into Craft Night and Bar Trivia Night where we continued to make each other laugh like crazy. Slowly but surely they became my closest friends and I am constantly surprised at how funny and creative they all are. We are going to start Tabletop Gaming soon and we are trying to plan a Rifftrax-like Movie Night.
