[C] ¿Cómo describirías tu personalidad?

Jesús Manuel
Poseo un carácter y a partir de ahí mi destino se conforma.
Pienso que todo acaba pasando, incluso los tiempos difíciles y las circunstancias desagradables activa mi fuerza y dirige mi atención hacia adelante. Es una actitud interior que no minimiza los problemas urgentes ni se desentiende de las dificultades. Mi actitud me ha hecho destacar porque incluso ante las adversidades y a pesar de los inconvenientes no pierdo la esperanza de superar problemas, tratando con ellos abiertamente, y doy lo mejor de mi misma para que una situación mejore. Es una cuestión de hábitos mentales. El poder de la mente tiene un impacto en todos los aspectos de mi vida. Los hábitos son pautas adquiridas de un comportamiento muy adaptable. Para adquirir el hábito he debido entrenar y ser paciente. Así me he ejercitado en cualquiera de mi edades. He desarrollado puntos de vista y no he olvidado nunca lo que llevo dentro y lo que soy capaz de construir. Por lo que se deduce que es el optimismo lo que me ha ayudado en todo. Es extrema, por lo general soy tranquilo y callado, siempre escucho a los demás y los respeto, los trato con cariño incluso cuando son desconocidos. Cuando me enojo o estoy en una pelea, puede que las cosas se salgan de control pero eso suele ocurrir en situaciones de mucho estrés y cuando alguien me desprecia, en general esto sucede por un problema cerebral que tengo, pero en general en un 90% de los casos, lo tengo controlado. Hice un test de personalidad, en el que dio que soy una persona con mucha empatía que siente que vive en un mundo violento e injusto (al menos eso decia el test). Yo no lo sé, algunas de las personas que me conocen dicen que muy fuerte. Soy una persona normal promedio, con miedos ,inseguridades, problemas de pensamientos automáticos ademas provengo de una familia machista que me heredo hábitos los cuales pretendo erradicar hasta donde humanamente sea posible. He sufrido de ansiedad posttraumatica, toc, y alguna que otra fobia en especial a las arañas. He estado en terapia en varias ocasiones y aparte de aprender he han ayudado a reconocer mis propios recursos para trata de vivir una vida de mejor calidad. Diria que he sido una persona inquieta, rebelde, cuestiona lo establecido y que ademas le gusta ser creativo en re formular mi propia realidad. Mi familia me considera una persona difícil, controlador, despistado y despreocupado. Me considero analítico, reflexivo ademas observador y con habilidades sociales para poder tener un trato muy bueno. Soy buen orador, me gusta exponer en publico ademas de escribir por este medio. Asi que no creo que sea nada especial o fuera del promedio. Ah creo distinguirme por ver lo que otros no pueden en cuanto a conductas pensamientos automáticos y creencias negativas. Así que muy normal si soy ademas de que tengo un ego controlado.

Is there any type of art you like? What art form do you like best?

Sωεετ Bεℓℓα
It really depends on what catches my eye. I used to have a membership at The Art Institute of Chicago and really liked some of the Rodin sculptures they had on display. M.C. Escher is my favorite, though. I’ve got a large framed print of this piece in my living room along with other smaller prints of other works of his. Impressionist and surrealist painting is probably my favorite.

[C] ¿Cómo afrontarías la muerte de un familiar? ¿Qué familiar te afectaría más su partida?

Jesús Manuel
Pues depende, imagino. Ya he afrontado varias muertes familiares y en cada caso ha sido muy diferente. He llorado en todas, es cierto, pero el duelo ha sido muy diferente en cada fallecimiento, por no decir que en algún caso ha habido tristeza pero no duelo, y cuando fue de mi abuela materna, me destrozó por dentro, porque además mi madre y mi hermana estaban rotas y emocionalmente prefería aparentar ser fuerte y apoyarlas, y eso alargó mi proceso de duelo. Su muerte, después de años con ELA, fue tan inesperada y tan dura, además horas después de celebrar mi cumple, me marcó muchísimo y jamás olvidaré su mirada, su sonrisa, su forma de querernos a todos. Era una diosa para mí. Y aún 4 años después pienso en ella y a veces me salen las lágrimas, aunque ya lo haya superado. Si te refieres por ser autista y si es distinto con los NTs pues ni idea. Después de mi abuela diría que ahora me rompería la muerte mis padres, mi hermana, mi pareja o algunos mejores amigos.

[C] "Te quiero", "Te amo". ¿Eres de las personas que diferencias entre ambas frases? Si es así, ¿cuál es la diferencia entre ambas frases para ti?

Jesús Manuel
Sí, para mí tienen una diferencia muy grande. Porque precisamente hay tantas formas de querer, que es una de las formas que yo utilizo para decir cuánto y cómo quiero a alguien. Porque a mi familia y a mis amigos los quiero, muchísimo sobretodo a mis padres, pero cuando estoy enamorada es mucho más, para mí es distinto. No sé, quizás es más literario que otra cosa, pero siempre he hecho esa distinción verbal.

What is your favourite film? Why?

Ledyashechka
How has Goodfellas not been talked about yet? It’s pretty much the perfect movie and I always sit down and finish it whenever I see it’s on TV. The pacing, the characters, the actors, the story, perfect. Forrest Gump - it's a whole bunch of genres in one movie and does it really well. The Vietnam War scenes were good, the love story is sweet and unconventional, the list goes on. Plus, I just love history. Street Fighter: The Movie
Yeah, so some explanation is probably warranted: obviously I saw it as a kid, I loved Street Fighter, and I loved JCVD, so those were already good combinations. Everything else just falls into place: Raul Julia turns in an excellent performance, and gives M. Bison this crazed sense of honor that you just would not have been able to infer from the games; Ming Na and Kylie Minogue are beautiful, sexy, and great in their roles; they literally found Zangief alive in the real world and cast him; the movie is incredibly funny and of course full of action, with everything leaving to a crazy 25 minutes closing action sequence. The movie blew me away as a kid, and I still watch it no joke about once a month. I don't think it's better than any movie out there, I don't even think it's the best fighting game movie adaptation, but yeah, it's definitely my favorite, watch anytime movie.

What is your biggest fear?

Alia77777
Letting people down. It's dreadful for me I came from a low income house hold and my single sacrificed so much to put me through private education to further my studies. I get upset when people say private school kids have it nice. I'm not wealthy but I owe every bit of my academic standards to my mothers teachings. I'm in college now and it scares me to think about all the steps and roads I have ahead of me but I know I'll overcome them I just want to prove to myself more than anything I can do it. Other than death and centipedes, which are entirely reasonable fears that everyone shares, it's probably losing a hand or even a finger. Writing is something that brings me a lot of happiness and most of my friends are online friends, so if I were to lose something that prevented me from being able to type, I would essentially be cut off from everything that brings me joy and most of the people I know. I could handle losing a foot or a leg but even the loss of one finger would honestly likely drive me to kill myself. It used to be being on an airplane with an open window, open door, or small crack and slowly suffocating to death. Then the day before the most important job interview of my life it actually happened. I survived but ended up with over 40 hours of no sleep, arrived one hour before the interview, couldn't prepare for it, and was so tired I was remembering things that never happened in the middle of the interview and later seeing people that didn't exist and bit my tongue so hard it bled all over my mouth at one point. Suffice to say I didn't get the job. Thanks, American Airlines. Also Amazon for not doing the right thing and letting me postpone it. Well, for me it's not being able to be the person I can. I have to work hard to get a good job, a good car, buy a house, find some awesome guy to settle down with, finish my degree, and be able to take a vacation once or twice a year.
Quicksand. You're playing and you think everything is going fine. Then one thing goes wrong. And then another. And another. You try to fight back, but the harder you fight, the deeper you sink. Until you can't move... you can't breathe... because you're in over your head. Like quicksand.

Favourite movie?

Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior. In essence, The Lone Ranger plus cars. Deep down, it's so much more. When it comes to setting, Mad Max 2 raised the bar to new heights when it came to post-apocalypse. Sure, it isn't the first post-apocalyptic film ever, but it most certainly one of the best. Everything about it, from the characters (Who can't forget Gyro Captain, Wez, The Road Warrior himself, and Lord Humungus?), the writing (what little dialogue there is has meaning: Stay or flee? Surrender or fight? Defend or attack?), to the directing (I would argue this is the film that made George Miller a household name, in spite of the unprecedented success of the original). But, there is one thing about this film in particular, that makes me more eager, the more I watch it: The cars. From the V8 Interceptor, to the Tanker, they're all unique. No black Suburbans driven end-to-end, in Road Warrior you have all sorts of vehicles, each a little more demented than the rest, from the tired and worn out V8 Interceptor, to Lord Humungus's 6x6 death truck. Even though it's 35 years old, it still holds up quite well, and I highly recommend watching it, even more so than the later Fury Road. Inside Out struck a chord with me. I love animated films anyway, because like to appreciate the artistry and creativity behind it all, and newer high tech animations like Zootopia and How to Train your Dragon are really exciting with the leaps they're making, but Inside Out really hit a nerve with me that meant it won a special place in my heart. The scene where Riley comes home and breaks down utterly killed me, because it was a physical expression of all the bottled up emotions I'd held for two years, and it was the first time I'd seen what was in my head played out in front of me. I only watched it without crying for the first time a couple of months ago. Speed Racer. I get teased about it, but it's just a fun movie. I saw it in the theaters 3 times. I can't really explain why but the movie speaks to me. I forced my sisters and their SO's to go. All were skeptical, all loved it. After I got the DVD I force my friends to watch it. They heard it was bad, the critics panned it blah blah blah. All come to the realization it is an amazing movie. John Goodman and Susan Sarandon really sell the family part of the family business of Racer Industries. Kick Gurry is the perfect goofy foil to Emile Hirsch's plucky hero. Christian Ricci is an adorable godddess (as always) and you'll wish someone could love you the way her Trixie loves Speed. And by all that is holy is Roger Allam a magnificent bastard you love to hate. It has a really wholesome family oriented story, but it doesn't get bogged down in sap. The visuals are stunning and the cinematography is fluid and playful. It really is cotton candy for the eyes. My favorite sequence in the film has to be the Casa Cristo race.
