    Favorite bassists?

    Paul Simon is the first one that comes to mind. I’d listen to some Les Claypool here and there, but I’m not big into learning people’s names TBH. I just listen to the music. I like the basslines Tool has, they’re fun. Other than that I couldn’t tell you what bassists I liked.IDK when this was asked. I haven’t checked this section in forever.

    Sorry if this is too personal of a question. You don't have to answer it if you don't want to. What's it like being autistic? When did you first realize you were autistic?

    I was diagnosed in infancy. It doesn’t really feel like anything, just explains why the loud things are loud, the uncomfortable clothes feel uncomfortable, and the behavior of most people is baffling. The biggest impairment it gives me is socially. I have few friends IRL. I have some mutuals on here that I like but don’t interact with much. I’m on my own most of the time. I don’t really know how to feel about that.

    Well I'm fairly new to managing my MS as I was only recently diagnosed. Personally I try to avoid heat and sources of stress. It's hard to do the latter since I'm also suffering through anxiety lol

    Sorry if this is a personal question. You don't have to answer it if you don't want to. What's it like being a burn survivor?

    Honestly I don’t know how to put it in words and I’m not sure if I’m gonna give you the right answer but being a burn survivor isn’t bad and it’s isn’t great at the same time.

    For reference, I was burned at ten months old. 90% of my body was burned and about 75% of that was third degree burns, I’ve had both of my legs amputated and most of my left hand amputated as well, I have hearing loss in both ears and rely on hearing aids in my day to day life.

    And yes, I can do a lot normal things like play video games , cook, write, and other stuff but there are limits on things I can do like walking (I’m learning how to walk again, I was walking regularly with prosthetics until a couple years ago I had surgery and that set back my progress) or do certain things for myself. I Right now I guess I’m at that stage where I’m self conscious about how I look but at the same time I know I can’t do anything about it. I had alot of surgeries for skin graft release or I needed them. I used to have surgery every year in elementary school but the surgeries slowly stopped over the years. I think after my surgeries, me and my mom would go back and do a clinic check up to make sure my skin grafts and donor sites are healed and make sure nothing was infested. I think the last time I had surgery was three years ago and I was supposed to have surgery this year but this pandemic got in the way. I been dealing with a lot of skin grafts pain lately because of quarantine and I haven’t been walking lately but yeah it’s not great right now but oh well. This might not fully answer what you were asking but I hope this all makes sense! If you want to know more I can try to answer your questions (or anyone else’s)!

    If Leech were to whack/kill somebody, what would be her preferred method? Also, a cutesy comic with mafia girls would be a great idea.

    Ahhh so sorry for the lag! But thank you for the ask you’re my first!❤️ Leech is really a hands on kind of gal she’s all about getting her hands dirty only if she has to. She goes around collecting debts and loans for her father but wanted a more respected title than a lowly messagenger. So she decided to start a small gang of her own but could only recruit an under classmate named Daichi being that he idolizes her. But if she had to resort to whacking someone she’d probably have her father deal with it due to his connections. I did plan for there to be another female rival who’s a Yankee gal for leech but I haven’t Gotten that far in her story we’ll see tho!.

    Sorry if this is too personal of a question. You don't have to answer it if you don't want to. What was it like to survive cancer?

    It had a lot of highs and lows. I had to do a lot of chemo. I thought I would lose a lot of weight, which I did in the beginning. But, then some medications caused me to gain almost 50 pounds, so my weight was horribly inconsistent. That part was hard.

    Then there were issues with the nurses and staff. Most hospitals are overcrowded, but understaffed. Especially, UC David Medical Center. I would tell anyone in California to avoid that place! They have one nurse to about 5-8 patients. So, you could be screaming in pain, and have to wait for them to help you.

    I had to deal with a lot of pain from my port surgery, where they put a device in my chest, which is where the chemo would be put.

    The nausea from the chemo wasn't that bad until my last treatment.

    Towards the end, I finished my treatments in San Francisco, which also wasn't a great medical center. I mean, I'm grateful they saved my life, don't get me wrong. But, there was a lot of neglect and abuse there as well when it came to how they handled my mental health.

    One of the oddest things happened after I got my stem cell transplant, though. I felt so masculine, and different. I realized that I was given an older male's stem cells. Later, my doctor confirmed that my donor (who I did not know) was a male in his forties. I could feel his essence and his personality.

    Also, I got my transplant on August 9, 2019 at 5 PM, which is referred to as my Second Birthday. And, I now consider that to be my real birthday and my real astrological sign. I feel like a Leo Sun and Sag Moon a lot more than I ever felt like I was my old sign.

    In short, I feel more myself. I felt a lot happier when it was all over. I felt more appreciative for life, and a lot of gnosis was bestowed on me.

    There were things I never understood involving metaphysics and epistemology, which I know excell at explaining to others. My interest in the abstract, as well as science has piqued. I am now back in school, and feel like this was all meant to be part of my journey.

    If someone besides Michael Bay were to direct a new Transformers film, who would you want it to be and why?

    Guillermo del Toro I think would handle it beautifully. He'd be able to bring humanity to the bots while still retaining their alien roots, and preserving their individual personalities. And he could hopefully make humans enjoyable characters without making them the sole focus of the film.

    Plus, I think I could die happy seeing a film with the original bay! bot cast but with the lighting and attention to atmosphere we saw in Pacific Rim.
