    I ask you a question, you answer and ask another. Keep them coming!

    What is something that you've never done but would like to try?

    Anal sex.

    So... Is it human nature to create or destroy and why?

    Depends on your preference of holes...

    Actually, all living things are based on the concept that one must destroy or consume other things to survive and hopefully have the chance to create more of themselves.

    Is Dobby gonna stick around or leave...again?

    What question do you hate to answer?

    Tied between "are you looking for work?" and "are you still writing?"

    What's your ideal weight, realistically speaking?

    Where I'm at right now in terms of weight, but remove my little bits of fat and add a little bit of muscle.

    I'm mostly content with my body.


    How was your Thanksgiving?

    We don't celebrate Thanksgiving here, but from what I saw on Facebook, it looks like my American friends all had a nice day.

    Question - are you happy with where you're at in life?

    FF15 (tomorrow EEEEEK!) and WatchDogs 2 will be my holiday games.

    Do you think Dobby will ever release the first GR sex tape?

    He hasn't been around in a while (either inactive or banned, maybe?), but I would have thought if there was a GR sex tape, Icepick would have been responsible.

    What was the worst game you played this year and why?

    I had a back track on the New Year's Resolution 2016 thread and... no, I didn't accomplish any of my resolutions. I've improved in certain areas.

    1 - Lose more weight, fit fitter, healthier and stronger:
    My fitness level has been very up and down this year and thus, my weight hasn't really changed, so nope.

    2 - Save a lot of money:
    I haven't saved "a lot", but I've done okay. Better than I expected, to be honest... so I suppose this is a sorta success?

    3 - Win fights at the Australian National Judo Championships:
    Hah. I didn't go this year. I haven't done much judo at all, due to study and such.

    4 - Get a new job:
    Nope! I applied for a lot of jobs, had a couple of interviews but all of them failed. I'm still in the same spot.

    5 - Return to my own web comic:
    Yes and no. I've made the decision to resign from GR Strips. Previously, I was going to resign at the end of November, however I was asked to stay on until the end of December, so my last comic will go live on Friday the 30th of December. So hopefully next year... I can commence my own. :)

    6 - Fix/Strengthen my posture:
    Still not perfect, but it's better. My core strength and spinal stability has improved, so I suppose this is a success. Not where I want it to be, but improved.

    7 - Be happy:
    2016 has been a hard year. I'm happier about some things in life, and some things I'm not. So... I guess this is sorta achieved?

    My question:
    When you were a kid, what did you want to be "when you grow up"? Are you what you wanted to be as a kid, or has your path completely changed?

    When I was a kid I wanted to be a scientist because I loved Bill Nye. Then I went to high school and decided I was better in English class than Science.

    I ended up pursuing Journalism in University which lead to a job in Book Publishing for Harper Collins. Eventually I decided that wasn't for me either so I took up a Video Game Design course. Haven't been able to find work in that field but luckily I've stuck with Harper Collins.

    Question: if you could meet any celebrity, alive or dead, and take that person out for the day who would it be and what would you do?

    Honestly I'd love to meet either Mark Ruffalo, Rosario Dawson or maybe Trevor Noah or Stephen Colbert. If we were to spend the day together I would seriously just want to drink alcohol, discuss social issues while a playlist made up of The Roots, A Tribe Called Quest, Sharon Jones (or any Daptone artists) and Wu-Tang played in the background.

    I'd also like to meet Tom Hanks or Hugh Jackman. I'm not sure how I would spend the day with them however.

    Question:

    What's the biggest challenge that you are currently faced with?

    There's two challenges that I'm faced with at the moment and they're both a bit first world.

    First challenge - My job. I'm tired of it and I want to try something new... but I'm afraid of trying to leave. I have been applying for a lot of media related jobs this year, but I've failed every time. In my current job, I can't go up any more in pay levels (and I'm not very high anyway). I fear if I don't leave, then five or ten years down the track, I could still be here, on the same pay grade. Since it's a government job too, it could potentially look bad on my resume.

    Sometimes I wonder if I joined the wrong industry. I'm scared to try a new industry, because that means I'll have to try and get re-qualified in a different field, which means back to university, study etc. Then I'd have to find a damn job in said field too, which could be my current predicament all over again.

    My second challenge - judo.

    I'm honestly losing interest in judo. What was once a passion of mine and a source of fitness, learning and stress relief, has now become a source of anxiety and stress.

    I won't lie, our judo club is having problems on the inside. I won't go into much detail, but we have two coaches... one is older and is "old school", the other is younger and is "new school". Both of which are clashing with one another and it's been going on for over twelve months. The older coach refuses to try new things and listen to new ideas, instead, is intensely sticking to what they know and want to do, no compromise, no change.

    I was trying to stay out of it, but I'm caught in the middle. I was trying to be as unbiased as possible... the older coach is my coach, the younger coach is one of my best mates. Now, I'm leaning towards the younger coach, because I believe that they're right, things need to change, but they won't. I also got pissed off and argued with the older coach over the phone, because while I was off work sick, he decides to ring me up, and tried to complain to me about the younger coach, resulting in a twenty minute argument. I've had enough. I can't have a normal conversation with him anymore without him complaining or/and criticizing something or/and someone... which is what I've told him and he didn't take it too well.

    Okay, that was way too long. Sorry about that.

    My question:

    If you could meet a particular celebrity with a particular set of skills that they are known for (for example, Gordon Ramsay for his cooking, or Bear Grylls for his survival expertise) and learn from them, for free, who would it be and what skill(s) would you want to learn, and why?

    Probably Ted Price. Learning how to design amazing games under the wing of a legend is kind of a dream of mine.

    If there was a single type of food that you could eat endlessly without any repercussions, what would it be?

    It would have to be my own hickory smoked boudin. They're just sausages, or "dirty rice" / pork sausages, but when placed in a hickory smoker, low and slow, it becomes a dinga-lingy mouthful of excitement ["ahem... ladies" *tips generously*] that can only be replaced by the next bite. Seriously, incredible.

    What was the best Christmas gift you ever received, and how old were you when you got it? How did you react? How did your parents react to your reaction?

    I don't really remember what gift was the best.... but actually now that I'm older I prefer to spoil my parents so when I bought them an iPad, a camera and some other things over the years, I have been just as excited to see their faces opening the gifts! Not even just for Christmas but since I have been living in other countries from my parents for years now, I love to send them things and when it arrives, call them on Skype and see their reactions. I think its even better than receiving something! :)


    If you could ask someone (all-knowing) about your future, what 3 questions would you like to know?

    What is my medical history? (I'm adopted and it worries me sometimes.)
    What action will my kids hold the biggest grudge or annoyance against me?
    How many people will I have influenced for good?

    What is the best lesson you've learned by getting outside your comfort zone.

    I know for a fact that if you act selfishly towards your children they'll resent you for it. Like for example, my mom would leave us in a car outside a casino so she could go gamble. Also, stopping one of your children from dating someone because you didn't like her "kind" would cause some resentment.

    The actual question took me awhile to think about because I'd like to think I'm an open minded person but the best lesson I've learned outside my comfort zone is that not every religious person is out to convert me to their religion. I'm agnostic so I try to avoid discussions pertaining religious beliefs because I would think that the other person would try to shove their beliefs in my face. Nowadays, I'm okay discussion religious matters with friends and it does let me see into part of their lives that are important to them.

    You wanna go to a club where everybody wee on each other?

    Just kidding. If you were to die tomorrow, what wisdom would you like to pass on to your friends/family/people in general?
