When a man gives his opinion he’s a man. When a woman gives her opinion, she’s a bitch. – Bette Davis
Follow your passion, follow your heart, and the things you need will come. — Elizabeth Taylor
I wanna know what you see when you look in the mirror on a day you’re feeling good. I wanna know what you see in the mirror on a day you’re feeling bad. I wanna know the first person who ever taught you your beauty could ever be reflected on a lousy piece of glass. — Andrea Gibson
“Don’t be in a hurry to condemn because he doesn’t do what you do, or think as you think, or as fast. There was a time when you didn’t know what you know today." —Malcolm X
"The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing." —Albert Einstein
208-5 things within touching distance - My iPad, my computer (lol), an empty bowl of cereal, a pile of blank CDs, and a fluffy pen that looks like a bird.
191-Last movie you just watched: I watched A Few Good Men last night :)
183-Do you like to dance? Hahaha I HATE dancing. I’m one of those people who was cursed with indescribably horrible rhythm, I literally look like a dying chicken when I get on the dance floor…
90-Favorite place to shop at? Oh man, it’s been forever since I last went shopping. Forever 21 and Target are my favorite places, cheap and cute :P
86-What are the top five places you wish you could go before you die? London and Paris and Berlin (I’ll be going there next year), Prince Edward Island, and Egypt.
6-Age you get mistaken for: IDK I haven’t gotten mistaken for any ages recently. When I was fourteen, I got mistaken for a college student, and my teacher used to constantly forget that I wasn’t 18 yet. I also get asked if I want to order alcohol at restaurants, so they must think I’m 21 or something.
1-How are you? Great! Just bored, and a little tired :)
I can’t stand the taste or smell of beer – but I love champagne and cocktails.
I hate flying… but I love travelling..
I usually don’t go to sleep until 2 or 3 in the morning… VERY bad habit!
I was cleaning the oven earlier today – and now the smell of oven cleaner is stuck in my nostrils ..
I am obsessed with Anton Walbrook at the moment – WHY did you do this to me, Jools?!
About 50 % of the films I’ve watched this week have been in German – without subtitles .. my poor little brain is exhausted … :D
I had a major crush on one of my teachers in college. It was so embarrassing, and I kept fearing that he or my classmates would find out.. I was pretty obsessed - and if he recommended a film or a book, I would start watching or reading it immediately. Because of him I watched Monty Python, read Oscar Wilde and listened to The Kinks. I will be forever thankful for that :D
I’ve been having some rather disturbing dreams about Dean Martin and Cary Grant lately … I can’t even elaborate, because I can never remember much when I wake up – I just know that they were VERY weird … !
I’m terrible at remembering important dates – like friends’ birthdays and historical dates .. even years – which is pretty bad when you’ve studied history :S
I have had Adele’s Rolling In The Deep stuck to my brain for days…
I play the piano and sing a bit – but I’ve always wished I could play the guitar instead..
I really want a dog. When I was six years old I got the cutest dachshund / fox terrier mix named Bella. She lived to be 16 years old – and I miss her terribly. When I get my own house, a dog will be the first things I buy.
I still can’t believe that I am going to see Maureen O’Hara in Glengarriff – less than two months from now
I still can’t believe that I am going to meet so many wonderful Tumblr-people in Glengarriff – less than two months from now…
I love the scent of newly laundered clothes.
I love flowers - Especially roses. If I could afford it I would always have bouquets of flowers all over the house.
I am an only child.
I have the world’s smallest tv – it’s actually smaller than my laptop screen … my friends are always mocking me about it, and whenever we are going to have a film night they insist on having it at their place instead of mine – Can’t say that I blame them :D
When I was 10 my parents bought six pigs. One of them was much smaller than the others and very frail-looking, so I took it upon me to nurse her, and she became kind of a ‘pet pig’ – I taught her to do tricks, and she would follow me around the garden like a dog. If I didn’t spend enough time with her, she would break out of the paddock and walk up to the yard and grunt until I came out of house to play with her.
Berlin is my favourite European city – I don’t know why, but when I went there last August for the first time, it was like … coming home… such a strange feeling. I hope I can go there on exchange next year.
lol i think i am kinda the same with the dancing..at least it seems like that to me! and yay you are coming to berlin? that’s great! also yay for being mistaken for an older age..ppl always assume i am younger and it sucks. ^^
Yep, in 2013! Been planning that trip for years, haha. I don’t know why people can’t assume something close to our actual ages!
