Get to know me me by Teacat

This has been going around today and it seems a nice way to introduce myself to all the other Weasyls.

-What's your real name?
Brandon Macy Zuckerman

-How tall are you?
5'8'' ish

-What's your natural hair color?
Very dark Brown

-What's your eye color?

-What's your orientation?

-Are you single, taken or undecided?
Sharing life with Kerplunk for seven years now!

-What do you do in your spare time?
I spend a lot of time day dreaming and brain storming about projects I wish to work on some day. I study animation and game design and am always looking for good art resources.

-What's your job or occupation?
Presently unemployed - trying to sort out how to carve out a career in art that works for me. I am producing pages for the webcomic 'Banished'. Otherwise I'm presently working a lot on commissions and trying to get better at producing quality work in a reasonable amount of time.

-What do you like about yourself?
I think of myself as genuine and sincere, and for better or worse I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve. I work hard on projects that I get involved in and I'm eager to learn many creative skills. I'm very soft spoken and friendly.

-What do you dislike about yourself?
I'm rather socially nervous and can be self deprecating in my weaker moments. I can be hyper sensitive and easily rattled by stressful circumstances. I've also internalized a wicked inferiority complex which among other things often keeps me from reaching out to people who may actually be open and willing to help. I have no reliable internal metric by which I value myself or my work. Did I mention I'm wicked harsh on myself?

I'm actively trying to work on evening this crud out now, though, and posting my work online and talking and airing out my woes like this are all part of that. I do not view this lengthy admission as a plea for attention but rather an incentive to not give up on myself.

-What did your friends notice about you when they first met you?
Shucks, I guess I'd have to ask them! Probably my deep resonant voice juxtaposed with being so shy a person.

-What is your belief/religion if you believe in anything at all?
Agnostic/atheist; I believe in treating people fairly and respectfully and not being a skeevy anti-social monster.

-Do you drink?
My alcohol tolerance has only gotten worse over time! Maybe I'm a little allergic? I do enjoy ales and stouts now and then though. Also good wine with good food.

-Do you smoke?
Cannabis, now and then. Calms my jangly, flayed nerves. Never had an interest in tobacco, though.

-What are your major fears?
Wasting whatever potential I have by inaction.

-Do you have any dreams or goals?
My only dream and goal at this point in my life is to find some venue to make a modest, comfortable living with my art that doesn't compromise my enjoyment of the creation process. Wish me luck~

-Have you ever had a crush or an ex?
Plenty of crushes but the closest I have to exes never got far enough in the first place to be considered a 'relationship'.

-Who's your best buddy?
Why, you of course. <3

-What's your favorite dish?
I love a good spicy Indian curry. And Italian noodle dishes. And Greek yogurt. And etc.

-What's your favorite drink?
I'm thiiis close to hooking up an IV drip to an unlimited supply of hot breakfast tea.

-What's your favorite color?
Teal, maybe? I like color in general.

-If you had a super power, what would it be?
To relax at will.

-What's your least favorite food?
I have a broad palette but I find I have an aversion to anise.

-What's the last meal you want before you die?
I suspect if I saw the end coming that I would not have much of an appetite.

-What do you drive and what would you really like to drive?
I'm pretty squirrely about driving. I'd much prefer biking or public transit.

-What is your most disliked bug?
I'm actually quite friendly to bugs, they all have a role to fill.
That said I'll usher them away if they're poking around where they don't belong.

-What pet peeves do you dislike the most?
Prideful, rude ignorance pushes my righteous indignation buttons.

-What do you dislike in life?
I don't want to end on a downer, let's just say that despite everything I'm an optimist at heart.
Love you guys.

<3 - Brandon

      I had been looking for an excuse to retire the 'Ayato' name for a long time.
      I love tea, so Ayato T. Cat became Ayato Teacat. Now just 'Teacat'.
