I’ve never really grown out of my 14-year-old self’s love of personal surveys, and since this one is Greek themed and I lived in Greece, well…that’s a good enough excuse for me!
Aphrodite: what you find attractive in a person
Intelligence and humor. Also eyebrows, ankles, and laugh lines around his eyes.
Apollo: favourite piece of music
Ooo! I could go with “the entire Hamilton soundtrack” but that is a recent favorite that has yet to withstand the test of time. Oh gosh, I’ve sat here scrolling through my iTunes for ten minutes now, and I cannot decide whether to go with something instrumental or emotional or artistic and whatever, I’m just going to choose “After the Storm” by Mumford and Sons because it’s beautiful.
Ares: opinion on war
Not a fan of it. I can get into the emotional fervor of it in fantasy movies, but I dunno. I think life is sacred and violence is easy and Ares is my least favorite Olympian.
Artemis: favourite animal and why
Cheetahs! I loved them when I was a kid because they were pretty and fast and could be tamed enough to be in movies. Then I grew up and found out that they have social anxiety and often need dog-companions to calm them, and my love grew even deeper.
Athena: share a piece of wisdom
It’s easy to give advice; it’s harder to let someone make their own decisions.
Dionysus: red, white, or rosé?
Red in the winter, white in the summer. I’m not a monster.
Demeter: favourite season and why
Spring! No, fall! Any time plants are doing something interesting, I’m a fan.
Eros: describe your crush
Hm. I don’t think I’m actively crushing on anyone right now, although I’m sure I could summon up some dead ones if I wanted, but WHY WOULD I DO THAT TO MYSELF.
Hades: do you believe in life after death?
Most of the time.
Helios: opinion on tanning
I think tanned skin looks great, I think pale skin looks great, I think spending money or killing yourself to get either one is kind of silly.
Hephaestus: do you think disability can ruin a relationship?
Yes. Anything can ruin a relationship. Relationships are hard. But disabilities shouldn’t be dealbreakers, unless a railroad spike gets lodged in your brain and your personality totally transforms a la Phineas Gage.
Hera: opinion on feminism
I’m a big fan. I think people should be treated as individuals, I think equality is great, I think gender roles are toxic for both men and women, I think strength and compassion should be celebrated in people no matter what they have going on between their legs.
Hermes: last text you sent
“Cool! I hope it’ll be online somewhere!”
Hestia: describe your ideal house
A tiny house!
Pan: opinion on gay rights
I think marriage is outside of a government’s jurisdiction, and I think the violence and hatred that still occurs against LGBTQ+ people is absolutely horrendous.
Persephone: is climate change really a thing or is everyone just overreacting?
It’s totally a thing. Why is this still a question?
Poseidon: list three fears
- Being unloved
- Being useless
- Being raped
Zeus: three places you want to travel to
- New Zealand

I’m doing the seasonal wine-drinking backwards this year. I was all about crisp white wines (Riesling!) during the winter, but now I’m on a fruity reds kick. I also endorse mimosas. 🙂

Maybe I am a monster. Thats a convincing argument.
