I was tagged by mupaa to do a compare past and present, publicly, to myself. Oh boy, oh boy.
OLD YOU VS. NEW YOU!
Answer these questions honestly to see how you’ve developed over a few years!
FEEL FREE TO STEAL THIS MEME!
What name did you go by?:
Jacobs6Geno. My old buddy's nickname was generals, after the Command and Conquer game. We tried inputting the name "Jacobs & Generals" into the playername field, but ended up having to weirdly abbreviate it.
Real name's Jaka, pronounced as Ya-kah, if you're interested.
Straight. Practically obsessed with girls, believed them to be pretty and mysterious.
What was your Fursona (give us a picture!)?:
No fursona found. Had an imaginary me - my personality was an intruder AI built by a government organization of that universe, made to usurp the body of the most powerful mage on that planet. Main character complex - check.
Gaming. Started with DOOM II at age four. Secretly writing romance fanfiction. Drawing, but only when I was younger.
In love every f**** month. All the goddamn time. Constantly had someone on my mind, making my heart race. Yes, it sounds so awfully cheesy, but such is life. I sucked up to ALL the teachers and tried to show everyone how smart I was. No, I wasn't a popular kid, but I did keep very diplomatic relations with everyone, and I had a few (usually one) very good friends around me.
Spinach and mashed potatoes alla gran. I mean, she'd call it spinach, but it was mixed nettles and chard. Weird but delicious.
Who was your best friend?:
Goes by the handle of GexideL nowadays, wouldn't like me mentioning his name on DeviantArt, but eh, what can you do. Videogames were our life and we were practically joined at the hip. Loved those times. He played the synth and I sung, we performed as a part of his music school a few times.
What did you usually wear?:
Hoodie/sweater and pants, the latter usually dark. When I felt really fancy, I wore an opened button-up shirt with a cool T underneath.
Did you have any pets? If so, what were they?:
Did you have a DeviantArt?:
Nope, I don't believe so.
If not…Why didn’t you?:
I only read a few fanfics here over the years, but generally my group of friends always looked at it sideways, so I stayed away. I've only had my views change recently.
When did you first make your DeviantArt?:
Any other interesting info on yourself back then?:
Had quite a thing for showmanship. You'd usually find me in some school play or another, doing god knows what. I once (quite successfully) portrayed a disappointed dumpster lecturing a young child about recycling. I also loved reading, memorized the pages where the main characters kissed by heart, still know the page where Lyra and Will (His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman, my favorite books) share their kiss.
What name do you go by?:
This barred container holding poison? CageVenom they call me. At least they would, if I had any friends. The real name stayed the same.
What’s your Fursona (give us a picture!)?:
Video games, they stuck. I like writing, too. I watch quite a bit of anime, and still love to read.
Talkative, almost to the point of being obnoxious, but perhaps not in the usual sense. My mind's filled with information like the amount of jam that sunk with the Titanic etc., and I constantly feel like I've got to share it with everyone. Still quite theatrical, though nothing like before. Age tames you, I guess. I try my best to be kind and understanding to others, I feel like it's really important.
I make wicked tortillas, other than that, I have an awful sweet tooth and an unhealty affection towards junk food.
Who’s your best friend?:
Childhood sweetheart. Always had an eye out for her, but took me twenty years to come around and start an actual relationship with her. We get up to all kinds of silly things, it's very good fun.
Other than that, I've my bro Tomy, we once tried to start up a company that would send you explicit hentai pics with mediocre humor in short comments every morning. That's how you know we're cool.
What do you usually wear?:
Hoodie/sweater and pants, the latter usually dark. When I feel really fancy, I wear an opened button-up shirt with a cool T underneath.
Do you have any pets? If so, what are they?:
Two cats, Iška and Mirna. One is a dumbass, the other is a munchkin, respectively. Love them both, tho, even when they decide that my keyboard is THE place to be.
Any other interesting info on yourself now?:
I'm such a hungry boy. My creepypasta, As Her Air Ran Out, got narrated by the awesome Dr Creepen on Youtube.
How much have you changed between these years?:
My thinking's progressed quite a bit, but life has a way of feeling samey overall.
Are you happy with the changes?:
Can't say no. I've managed to surround myself with excellent people, that sort of outweighs everything else.
Is there anything you wish you could go back to and change?:
But wouldn't that mess with the space-time continuum?
Seriously, sparing myself and some others a bit of pain isn't worth changing timelines for. We'll make do, don't worry.
Which part of your life did you like more; old or new?:
I couldn't say. I think that it's always felt the same, I just romanticize the past through the prism of memory. The present is here, though, and quite malleable at that, so I guess I kinda like it a bit more.
Was this meme interesting (>:3c)?:
