1. I love science so much that I want to know everything I can about it. But I never do.

2. The feeling of water rolling on my skin freaks me out.

3. I have a hard time hearing about 30% of what people say. I just make up what they say and carry on. It’s sometimes more interesting.

4. When I really like something and it’s on my mind then someone says “ugh I hate that” I get hurt and cry inside.

5. When I look at landscapes (residential or commercial) I envision how I would have done it completely different.

6. I judge people on how good of a host they are and avoid going back if they are a bad host. Especially if the first thing they don’t do is “here is the bathroom if you need to use it” having to ask to go to the bathroom is terrifying for me.

Rules: Always post the rules, answer the questions the person who tagged you asked, make 11 questions of your own, tag people and let them know you tagged them.

1. What is a movie that you can watch that will instantly make you feel better if you are feeling down?
Pitch Perfect.

2. Do you watch Running Man? If so, who is your favorite member and why? (If you do not watch Running Man, what is your favorite TV show, character, and why?)
Nope.

3. Describe your perfect Saturday.
During the academic year? This is going to be so lameeee, but it would actually really make me so happy. Waking up early-ish at like 8 am because my body is well-rested. Actually getting out of bed once I’m awake, showering, getting to my eating club at around 9 am, grabbing a cup of granola to munch on while studying for a good 2 hours until brunch starts. Eating a quick brunch with friends and then heading up to the library to actually be productive in the 2 or 3 hours before my work shift starts. Having work be super quiet so I can do some reading for class while just sitting at the desk. Then meeting back up with my friends for dinner. Then “working” for another 2 or 3 hours after dinner (i.e. “studying” in a busy place where friends are around to distract me, while I’m logged into tumblr and am constantly checking my dash lol). And then hang out with friends after like 9 pm, just talking and/or watching a movie and/or going out to a party later in the evening.

During the summmer? Sleeping in until like 10 am, cooking myself a yummy brunch. Scrambled eggs with garlic rice and sausage or something like that. And then watching TV and having a tumblr party with my sister aaaaall day. Maybe mess around on the piano or guitar or baritone uke for a bit and sing. But mostly just be super lazy.

4. What is your favorite candy?
Umm… pretty much anything dark chocolate. For non-chocolate candies, Starbursts.

5. Do you have any pets? Tell me about them.
Nope.

6. If you listen to k-pop, what is your favorite group? Suggest your favorite songs by them. (If not k-pop, then just your favorite band)
I listen to a little bit of kpop because my friend from high school introduced it to me, and my roommate is kinda sorta really obsessed with it. I don’t really have a favorite group, but I can name a couple of songs that I like:

  • Wedding Dress by Taeyang
  • Mirotic by DBSK
  • Run Devil Run by Girls Generation
  • Growl by EXO (Chinese version, though!)
  • Super Girl by Super Junior M

7. Who is your favorite X-man?
Ehhh… don’t have one.

8. Who is your favorite Marvel superhero?
Maybe Iron Man.

9. Who is your favorite DC superhero?
I’m not into DC as much as I’m into Marvel, so I know fewer of them. So idk.

10. If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?
A LEOPARD. It’s my favorite animal! (Mostly because I had a stuffed leopard that my aunt bought me at the zoo when I was a kid, and she was my favorite stuffed animal. Also leopards are super cool.)

11. If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
I’d really like to teleport. I’d save a lot of money on transportation (hahahahahaha… ha. It’s seriously a concern though.), and I could get places in no time at all.

My questions:

  1. Are you a cat person or a dog person?
  2. What do want for Christmas (if you celebrate it)?
  3. If you could go back and give your 15-year-old self one piece of advice, what would it be and why?
  4. What is the last book you read for fun, and would you recommend it?
  5. What are the top 5 things on your bucket list?
  6. Favorite TV shows?
  7. Which do you prefer: rain or snow?
  8. If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be and why?
  9. Fill in the blank: Sleeping in = waking up at ___ o’clock on a Saturday.
  10. Do you highlight or dog-ear books that you read?
  11. When you were a child, what did you want to be when you were all grown up?

31, 37, 155: if you could be any type of vegetable, what would you be?

31: How I feel right now

Physically: meh

Otherwise: considerably less than meh

37: Tattoos and piercing i want

Sooooo many. If I had the money, I’d go out and get like 8 tats right now. I really need to get a Tolkien related one. There are also several book quotes I want. And more vegetables (to go with my carrots), and lots of plants. As for piercings, I want a few more ears ones but I am not sure which. I also am trying to figure out if I want a medusa or a nose ring. Damn you Meaghan, it’s been so long since I got pierced and now I can’t stop thinking about piercings.

155: if you could be any type of vegetable, what would you be?

Hmmmmm very tricky… Probz some sort of root vegetable so I could hide underground… I’m sort of beet shaped… beets?

I’ll do these to oblige my lovely girlfriend but I’m not forcing this shit on anyone else.

1. I love music with my whole soul. I love making it, listening to it, talking about it, observing it, analyzing it, changing it, whatever. This all-consuming lust has dominated my entire adolescence and left me a husk of a regular person teeming with stupid rap album references.

2. CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATS

3. I like to think I have a particular capacity for empathizing with other people but hate the idea of branding one’s own personality with the trademark of “people person”. I’m definitely not that.

4. I used to write a lot of poetry and have since kind of petered out of practice, with the justification that not even I give a shit what I have to say anymore.

5. When I was a kid coming up in the world of music, around the third or fourth grade, my friends were all bumping 50 Cent and NSYNC and Britney Spears. The first CD I remember carrying around to listen to on the bus was So Much 2 Say, a record by Christian a capella gospel group Take 6. 

7. The most famous person I’ve ever met is probably Thomas Erak, or maybe Rob Beckley. So still pretty much nobody.

8. I have grown to desire social interaction far more than I did when I was a teenager. Not being in school and the irreconcilable monotony of working a “full-time” job and not having any crazy requirement of all my time leaves me bored often and hunting various hobbies.

9. Speaking of hobbies, I have a difficult time completing projects once I get started; oftentimes I allow myself to get discouraged easily and am too lazy to put in the effort required to actually make something of my time.

10. I used to really struggle with depression but nowadays i’m just resigned to it like everyone else

1) I have been skydiving a few times, zip lining, para-sailing, and am a bit of an adrenaline junky. My next goal is bungee jumping or hang gliding!
2) I can name almost every country on the map (i love history and culture and maps)
3) I loooove authentic Mexican food
4) I think the Moon landing was one of the most amazing achievements of humankind
5) I’ve found a 4 leaf clover
6) I’m an introvert, but once I feel comfortable I’m pretty awesome.
7) I’m always down to try something new and exciting
8) I’ve been lost in the Sierra Nevada mountains by myself for a day, and used the sun and cardinal directions to orient myself and hike to safety
9) I used to play the violin, clarinet, saxophone, and
recently taught myself the guitar. I love to play flamenco :)
10) I am fascinated by the interconnectedness of issues and concepts in the world and strive to learn as much as I can to see the big picture. For example, following a tee shirt back to the store, to the factory, to the laborers lives, to the cotton fields, to the farmers, to the water, fertilizer, time used. Life is extremely complex and I love learning, and think more people should think big picture.

65. Weird things you do when you’re alone.
I don’t know if this is necessarily weird, but I like to dance in my room really late at night. My dance “styles” fluctuate between ballet, lyrical, and hip-hop (or at least that’s the kind of dancing I’m doing in my mind). It’s probably too embarrassing for other people to see. I also sometimes record myself singing just to hear what I sound like to other people and to notice whether or not I’m getting better at not singing slightly flat. Idk… I can’t really think of anything else that’s especially weird.

183. Do you like to dance?
YES. ^see above. I pretty much go to parties for the dancing. The social aspects of parties/formal events (read: mindless small talk and fake laughing my way through awkwardness) exhaust me a lot more than dancing for hours on end.

193. You’re in a tattoo parlor about to get inked. What are you getting done?
Hmm… I’ve never really thought about getting a tattoo, but if I did, it’d probably be something relatively small and minimalistic. Like an infinity sign or something, idk.
