“As always, the level is very high. This year, as you said also more. You can have 7-8 riders that start for try to win races, and try to fight for the championship - this is great. We have to try to stay in that group.
Coming from a quite difficult winter season, I was never very strong; we struggle a bit to find the right feeling. So we have to work, we have to improve, but from tomorrow start another long season, and I hope to be strong and competitive.”
Nicknames: Rach? Sometimes? Most people just use my name, tbh
Zodiac sign: Gemini
Favorite fruit: cherries, preferably black or the white rainier cherries
Favorite season: Fall or the very first part of winter. Or the end of winter, when it gets rainy and gray. Basically I just hate summer :D
Favorite book: I love The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, East by Edith Patou, and Enthusiasm by Polly Shulman. And The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. It’s probably time for me to start reading some actual books again, huh? :P These are all from High School and College.
Favorite flower: Daisies! They’re so happy
Favorite scent: I’m pregnant right now so everything smells too strong and terrible. Usually I have little to no sense of smell, so having all of the scents IN MY FACE is mildly unpleasant. But a couple weeks ago my brother-in-law was cooking eggs with seasoning salt in them and that smelled like the best thing ever? I don’t know what to say. I have a weird relationship with smells.
Favorite color: Yellow! And Green.
Favorite animal: PANDA. I went to the San Diego Zoo when I was young and they had a new baby panda just born, and I fell in love. Haven’t fallen out since. I hold a soft spot, though, for manatees.
Coffee, tea, or hot cocoa: Hot cocoa. I have a special recipe book full of fun varieties, and I make my own recipes frequently as well. I LOVE IT. But tea will do if I’m not in the mood for a sugar overload.
Average sleep hours: 8 or 9. Though I long for the days when my sleep can be, once more, in the double digits. Seriously. I love to sleep. But not nap.
Cat or dog person: I’m a lazy person, so cats are easier, but I love the idea of having a puppy best friend. Someday I will own an adopted greyhound.
Favorite fictional character: My only criteria here is good hair and a sad background. See also: Thranduil, Kylo Ren, Leah Clearwater, Luna Lovegood, Audrey Jensen, etc.
Number of blankets you sleep with: A top sheet, thin blanket and comforter. And most of the time I throw them off because pregnancy makes me a literal human heater.
Dream trip: I really want to make it to Louisiana someday, and I want to go to France. Or back to England. But I’ve been watching The Fall and now I wanna go to Ireland really badly. Or India. India for sure.
Blog created: coming up on three years ago now?
Number of followers: 696, though I’m sure 400 of them are bots and the rest of them are confused or inactive. There’s no way I have that many actual people who like me enough to put up with my weird self.
I will tag….not 20 people because like I said, I’m pretty sure there are only like 5 of my followers who even like me. Feel free to ignore me and/or berate me over messaging or ask.
