Hihi, thought I'd do a fun questionnaire to know me better. It is furry and ABDL related in some part just so you know.
What's your fur name and how did you come up with it?
My fur name is Tavi Munk. I came up with the name by using my actual nickname, which comes out of the middle of my actual name, Octavius. As for "Munk", well , that part explains itself. Being a chipmunk and all.
What's your favorite color?
Hmm, favorite would be blue. Many would think orange, but it's a close tie of the 2. As for blue, I do love a royal blue. Overall, it fit my personality in many ways. Blue is the helper, the rescuer, the friend in need. It's success is defined by the quality and quantity of its relationships. It is a giver, not a taker. Sensitive to the needs of others and caring with your close circle of friends. While you are friendly and sociable, you prefer the company of your own close group of friends.
What was your favorite subject in school?
Hehe, I'm sure many can guess this one. Yes it is art. But it's my favorite before I even started school. It always brought peace and comfort to me when things get rough.
What kind of music are you into?
Well I always been into jazz music since I was a kid. It's what got me loving and playing the trumpet. In addition, I love symphonic, new age, ambient, some hip hop, some light rock, trance/techno, and game music.
How did you get into the furry fandom?
The fandom. Though I didn't get really active until early 2000, I officially got into it in June of 1993. I had to keep a low profile at the time since the family goes insane over something they don't understand and/or like to ridicule. Amazing that happened 20 years ago.
How did you choose your fursona?
This may sound funny. Back story time! In regards to my family not liking stuff like the fandom, they really compared me to being so much like a chipmunk. Being such a hyper, silly critter, and the way I love and eat peanuts. Then they say how I'm like a tiger, dynamic and very free spirited. I guess it kept with me ever since until I knew of the fandom. I was torn between a chipmunk and a tiger, so I combined them. Also a fan Tigger, Chip 'n Dale.
What was the first age you remember liking diapers?
Oh this question. To get it out there, since I was 4. To start, I've been incontinent all of my life. Family knew but didn't care. Anyway, my aunt went a different way to punish if we, any family children she took care of misbehave. She would spank, but then it led to being diapered. It happened to me when I was shopping with her and I saw a toy I wanted. She said no, I whined, pouted, and cried. So she stripped me of my pants and diapered me right there. "You act like a baby, I treat you like one", and we walked back home from the store. I was just in shirt and diaper that whole way and in her home for the whole day. I didn't really complain afterward. Just love the feel and my aunt did still treat me like a baby. But it wasn't in a punishing method, but more of a nurturing way. On a side note, she knew how I been a puppet by the family. But my aunt discovered my liking of them when I did something and I was diapered again. But was just in a diaper. I went went everywhere in the house and the backyard. However she notice that my diapers were always wet and/or messy later on. But that's another story.
What do you do for fun?
For fun, I do a great deal of things. I love being outdoors, in general. I venture wherever I go and make some fun out of it. I play tennis. Been doing such since I was 6. I practice or play when I get the chance. That goes for the other sports; volleyballs, ping pong, baseball, and basketball. I'm a railfan, or lover of trains and railroads. A childhood passion and still is. Whether it's models or the real thing. Parkour is a fave thing I do outdoor and....sometimes...indoors. Let's not forget going to the park. Stargazing is another. I'm all about astronomy. I may go into geek mode about but try not to. Even went looking at the stars in just padding. ^^ Oh YEAH, love to just run around too.
What are some things that make you really happy?
There are many things that does such. First, my friends and those I hold dear. They're like family to me and they keep me going. Meeting others has been a delight for me. Especial those with common interests. Fur meets, cons, diaper parties (cub or AB related). All in all, when I can just really cut loose. Don't get to do that much, but when that window appears, watch out! My art makes me happy as well. I'm sure some thought I wasn't going to mention that.
What are some things that make you really sad?
I never like to go about what makes me sad, but I'm human like everyone else and have my rough times in life. Well, I can say when see others sad or hurt, I feel it. Been through more bad issues as a kid that a kid shouldn't see, feel, or deal with altogether. It made me wanting to try and help ease what pain one would go through. Also feeling like a 5th wheel...or just the odd man out. I know many see me as this cub artist, and some look to me like a celebrity. I admire it, but I don't think of myself as one. Watching how some get nervous or think I'm better than they are is saddening. Yet I try to assure everyone I'm no different than the next person, regardless of what I know and do.
What are some things that scare you?
One word: Spiders
Do you like to plan things out in detail or be spontaneous?
I do a mix of both, pending on the situation. Hehe, con time, I'm ready like a month in advance. But there are some things that will happen on the fly. Especially out of excitement.
What was your life like growing up?
My life, growing up, was restricting and had many bad experiences, but I pulled through it. In short, I was making the family happy for what they wanted. If it wasn't perfect or I tried doing stuff for my happiness, I got punished for it. I am thankful for the friends I got to grow up with. Wasn't many of them but they made me smile.
Will you ever grow up or always be young at mind?
I can say, forever young. As said about what my family did, being adult, all the time, sucks.
Who in your life has influenced you the most? How did they do it?
Easy one. My art teachers. Three of them stand out the most. Felt like my mom, dad, and grandmother. Each were at different schools, and leaving them or seeing them go was emotional for me.
What embarrasses you?
Believe it or not, being called cute really does such. When younger, I was serious about it but lightened up over time. And yes, many of you were a big help on that.
Who's your best / closest friend?
Even to this day, since 5th grade, it's Brandon. Since we were 10, our friendship remains strong. He know about my furry side and all. And was curious how he'd look as a wolverine. He might go to a con one day. Who knows?
Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
Extrovert. If you've met me IRL, there's nothing more I need to say. Love to meet others and be social. It may not look like it online. Just that it doesn't compare to the real thing. But, to each our own.
Are you proud to be who you are and do you have any regrets?
I am proud of who and what I am. I do regret not acting on it sooner in life, but how my family went about things make you play it safe. Sometimes too long until you start forgetting. Glad that didn't happen.
