What was your favorite movie of 2012?
unfortunately i didnt really get out much to see movies this past year, but i really really really really really really enjoyed perks of being a wallflower. i had read the book my freshman year of high school and (i’d hate to sound cliche) it changed my way of thinking about the world and about human beings. great book. great movie. i cried like a baby in both. i highly recommend it.
Who is your favorite artist? (Painter, sculptor etc.)?
oh wow, this is one of those things that i’ve never really had a favorite of but this summer i went to NYC, and we went to the metropolitan museum of art, and id probably have to say it was the guy that painted / sculpted a shit load of ballerinas. i think his name was degas? im not really sure why, i think i related to him because it seemed like he had kind of an obsession going on and i know what thats like…
What is your most beloved childhood item?
do pets count? i got my cat rosa for my 10th birthday, and i love her more than i love most people. she’s the only thing from my childhood that i still have, really, i guess. im not sure how to say this without sounding like a complete and total cat lady, but shes my best friend, shes always there for me when im feeling down, and now im here for her in her last couple days of life. the other day we found out she has cancer, and we might only have her for another week tops.
Do you have a favorite constellation?
probably orion / orions belt, simply because its one of the easier ones to find. but really i love all stars. one day im gonna move out to the countryside where i can see all of them every night
How do you take your tea? (Or coffee if you prefer)
when im sick i make myself twinings herbal revive tea, which has lemon and ginger and all sorts of good shit for your throat, and i put honey in it, and i give this tea all the credit for the brevity of my illnesses lately. (thanks, twinings)
What are some of your favorite film openings/endings?
is it cheesy to say that lion king is my all time favorite opening? too bad, because i cant deny it.
Have you ever traveled to another country?
YES! i went on a few cruises (mexico, a variety of caribbean islands) but my most exciting adventure was when i went to the UK the summer between my 7th and 8th grades. i went with this program without my parents, so that was probably why it was so fun. but we went and saw castles and shit, and london, and we played in an irish bog, i sheared (part of) a sheep, wow it was so much fun.
Is there a dream you’ve had more than once?
to this day, im not sure if it was a dream, or if i was hallucinating, or if it was actually real, but when i was maybe 5 this clown character used to come through my (closed) bedroom door (although only his head and upper body because he always got stuck) and would always ask me to help him come inside so we could play. i would always get out of bed, and try to help him inside, but i could never do it. so i would get out my toys and sit by the closed door and play with him until he disappeared. then i would go back to bed / wake up.
still not sure if this was real, it still kind of scares the shit out of me.
Are there any people whose brains you’d love to pick? (Figuratively of course!)
oh wow, um unfortunately i dont have an answer to this one. im pretty content with what i know of people. (wow this is a lame answer sorryyy)
Why do you want to do whatever it is you want to do with your life?
im going into international affairs because i like language (and im good at them), im a middle child (so i can mediate pretty well), and i want to travel the world.
Would you like a Jelly Baby?
