In a world full of questions, sometimes you have to look both far and near to find the answers. Or you can just come here. It’s 5 Questions and it all starts right now.

What would your occupation be if you had followed your childhood dreams?

I’ve answered this one before, but the answer remains the same. A wrestler, a writer, or a TV weatherman. And for the most part, I’ve kind of fulfilled those dreams. I write about wrestling and bitch about the weather. And there you go.

What were you most afraid of when you were younger? Do you still have that fear?

I was afraid of being alone forever and yes, I do still have that fear because 99.95% of the time, I still am alone, especially when I need someone the most.

What’s your most recent passion?

I have no passions left. They all faded away and there is nothing left, but an empty shell of a person. Okay, that’s not true. I still like booty. And the television show Riverdale. It’s weird, but strangely enticing. And of course, wrestling. Now and forever, I will always be the wrestling guy, lol.

What’s the most difficult thing about being you?

The anxiety, the frustration, the loneliness, the sense of helplessness, and the self-loathing. Take your pick.

What small stuff do you sweat even though you know you shouldn’t?

Human interaction, be it a phone call, making small talk, or just passing a person in the aisle at Wal-Mart, all feels me with anxiety and dread. The only times I’m not feeling trepidation while having contact with another person are when writing or texting. With a few certain people, it’s not nearly as crippling (My bro & the fam, a few certain friends), and I can manage well in a controlled environment like behind my cash register at work, but people stress me out. It’s true, it’s damn true!

And there you go. Damn, this wasn’t as fun as I hoped. That’s what I get for using random questions from the Internet, right? I’m out of here for now. I’ll be back later with some wrestling stuff and maybe, just maybe a Day of Dougie. I’ve gotta make up for this stinker, right? Until the next time, take care and be safe. I’ll see you in the Batcave.
