frostedcapsicle asked: 1, 5, 9, 13, 22 *hint hint wink wink*, 46, and 47!
1: What is your name and does it mean anything?
Brittany is actually a bit odd in that it is a French name Bretagne, but was named due to the Britons that settled there after the Anglo-Saxon invasion.
Mostly I know I was named after Brittany the pink chipette.
I am a product of the 80s.
5: Who was your favorite teacher in high school and why?
It is a tie between my grade 11 and 12 English teacher and my grade 9 and 12 Art teacher.
My English teacher was a teacher where you had to earn her respect and you earned your grades. She was tough as hell, but knew when you needed help. She challenged me significantly, and I always appreciated it. Once I received a 35/30 on an assignment, and approached her about the mistake, and she just stared at me in horror that I brought attention to it and said “Just sit down Brittany.” So confused I went back to my seat, and when I looked back over at her, she just smiled at me.
My Art teacher was the first art teacher I ever had that did not hate my art. I had a hard time doing what I was told in art classes past the 7th grade, and my teachers often found my work troubling. He was the first teacher who liked what I did and encouraged my artistic process, despite how morbid/disturbing it could be.
9: Have you ever given blood?
I have not, and for a variety of reasons. I don’t like that gay men cannot donate blood, and being under the LGBTQA blanket I just kind of never wanted anything to do with it. I don’t know the exact rules that surround donating. I am terrified of getting blood work done.
Note: I still appreciate all those that do donate blood, it just is not for me.
13: Name one movie that made you cry.
I love this question because I have such a dumb answer: Star Trek (2009). Now hear me out. One of my biggest fears is either dying in childbirth, but not because of dying but missing out on my child’s life with my husband OR my husband dying and leaving me and the child alone. So when Chris Hemsworth dies at the start of that film, and the short interaction between he and his wife while their son is being born… ahhhhhhh.
22: Would you like to meet any of your Tumblr friends in person?
Pffffffffftttttttttttt as if you even had to ask this question :P You, Adri, and Gabriel are at the tippity top of that list my friend!
46: Do you have a bucket list?
I do NOT actually. Life goals and wants change and the only one that stayed consistent is “to get published” so we shall see! One item, however, does not a list make.
47: What is your favorite series of books?
Series eh? Probably going to have to go with The Chronicles of Narnia, as those books have meant the world to me and Edmund is my favourite fictional character ever (followed closely by Steve Rogers).
Though Harry Potter is probably second. But I can’t over look the things I really dislike about HP to ever de-throne my beloved Narnia <3
