Let’s go! My questions:
One - If you could study anything, not for a grade of for a requirement, just something that you want to learn (more) about, what would you study?
Oh, international relations & world economics, hands down. I love politics and economics because they’re topics that affect all nations and peoples. Also Welsh History because that’s a bit of my background I know almost nothing about.
Two - What’s your favourite flavour of ice cream? Do you like a certain store/brand better than others?
To be honest, I prefer pomegranate frozen yoghurt but hey, that’s just me. If I have ice cream, then I go full out with Ben & Jerry’s Vanilla, Caramel & Fudge when I watch something depressing. No joke, I went through an entire carton watching Reichenbach; it’s an emotional food.
Three - What accomplishment am I most proud of?
This is tough; I’m very fortunate to say that I’ve had a lot of proud moments. I think being elected president of my school’s advocacy club was pretty swell. Social justice is an issue I’m very passionate about and being chosen to run a group of students whose aim is to inspire positive, political change means a lot to me. Also - and this is on a totally different note - but when I made my first New York style cheesecake. I was six years old and it was a ‘big deal’ because I made it all from scratch and could barely reach the counter I was cooking on. It turned out really well and my mum took photos, so go me.
Four - What’s something that never fails to make me laugh?
I laugh easily; I mean, even at things I shouldn’t be laughing at. Big Bang Theory & The Office UK are wonderful, Hot Fuzz (God I love Simon Pegg), whenever Alfred is sassy in Batman, or Tina Fey’s auto-biography. I laugh at my mum when she finds some new kind of kale & spinach dip at Trader Joe’s because she’s obsessed with the stuff even though it smells of death, or when my friends make dinosaur noises just because (yes hello Erika).
Five - What started you on Tumblr?
Four score and seven years ago, one of my mates, Sinead, kept getting at me to start a blog so she and I could communicate easier; you know, I’d update on my life and post photos, she’d do the same, et cetera. Well, it started off like that for a good two weeks. Then I started reblogging all kinds of fashion editorials and thus began my fashion blog. Although I’m really in love with my other blog, I wanted to post other, more ‘me’ related things, so I started this blog in order to release the inner-nerd. It’s going quite swimmingly!
Six - What am I most excited for in the up-coming months?
Well, I’ve tickets to a couple of performances at the San Francisco Symphony, so yay classical music. I know, I lead an interesting life. I don’t have any concrete plans for the next couple of months; I tend to just go and do things last minute rather than plan in advance. Ask me again later, and my answer will change.
Seven - What’s my favourite colour?
Black. I’m boring, I know, but it’s a good colour.
Eight - What do I get on pizza?
ALL THE VEGETABLES. No seriously, I love veggie pizza. With good cheese and a thin but well-seasoned crust.
Nine - What’s the best trip I’ve ever been on?
I’m going to go with my first trip to Spain; I was four years old and my parents and younger brother and I flew to Cadiz for a month so I could meet my Spanish family. It was a big deal at the time to me cause there was a lot of people to meet - a little overwhelming - and it was like discovering an entire new half of my life. Since then, I go back every year to visit, but it’ll never be as magical as the first time.
Ten - Black or white?
Eleven - Lucky number?
