Meme time again I guess? Stolen from a couple of people, because why not.

The problem with LJ/DW: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away. Then post this in your journal and find out what people don't know about you.

What's the best date you've ever been on?

Fair point. Night Vale love sounds like a terrific time together, so we can call it a date.

I relate so much to this. Even after having been in a relationship, it was also long-distance and I can definitely call certain things dates (like, I can't NOT call Steirereck a date; I dressed up, it was hellishly expensive, etc etc) but... IDK that they FELT that much like dates? But what the hell is a date supposed to feel like, anyway.

Steirereck was certainly somebody spending money and a date decided ahead of time (it was my first date ever, supposedly), but I think maybe it's hard to see it that way because I just never was that into him?

So weird.

I just realized I'd never given you access to my flocked posts so I fixed that. I usually do both subscription and access at once so I blame DW.

Super basic: what do you do for a living, or rather (since I checked your pinned post), how is it going? Do you have a strategy for finding gigs? (Not asking for advice, just curious. I'm making a go of self-employment as well but my pursuits are more on the visual side.)

Definitely a mistake - I do sometimes add people just to read them, but for the most part I want to interact with them both ways, so if they add me back I'll give access. Especially back before December when 99% of my posts WERE locked.

Yeah, I feel you on that. It's good that you have something secure and steady, though. I know how to find blog gigs, mostly; I know how to pitch at least, and in my experience, posting consistently means people will contact me (though they're not always the kind of offers I take). But I've been slacking so bad. And with design and photography, like -- I could probably find design clients if I put more effort into it, update my portfolio for one thing, promote myself more, but I keep thinking back to bad experiences and I realized yesterday that I need to also rehaul my offerings and stop being so 'catch-all' because it's not working for me, either in terms of getting hired or of enjoying the process.

And with photography I live in the middle of nowhere but I could at LEAST get a portfolio up and advertise myself as a traveling photographer while I live here. Some people do it! But that means getting the portfolio up... which means going through so, so, soooooo many pictures I've failed to edit over the past couple of years.

I have 2 things! (Choose one or both to answer. Whatever you feel more comfortable doing.)

- If you could vacation anywhere in the world, where would you go?

- What do you do for self care/a day off?
