1. What was your favorite childhood toy?
Two come to mind here, because I never separated them. I had a lilac coloured doll which I ever so creatively named Lilac Dolly (Don’t judge, I got her when I was like a year old. My vocabulary was extremely limited), and then when I was five I got a sort of pink-red coloured hippo toy, which I again creatively named Helen the Hippo. THEY WERE THE BEST OF FRIENDS!
2. What’s the stupidest dare you’ve ever done? (or just something stupid you’ve done in life if you’re not a risk-taker)
Hmm, it sort of depends if by stupid you mean silly, or dangerous/reckless. I can’t really think of anything for the latter. Actually, I was never really big on dares in the first place because if you ever played truth or dare in my circle of friends, it was the equivalent of “Who do you like?” or “Go humiliate yourself in front of that group of people over there”. Because of that I always picked Truth, and had to explain time and time again that I didn’t fancy anyone. Right, gone off on a tangent there, sorry. Back to the question. I’m finding it surprisingly hard to think of something stupid I’ve done, short of just being generally awkward in any social situation ever. I guess a recent moment of stupidity was when my brain just short circuited for some reason and I became convinced that 25 + 25 = 100, and my sister had to look at me for at least two minutes before I realised what was wrong.
Sorry it doesn’t really count, but I can’t think of anything right now
3. What was the last thing you day-dreamed about?
I think it was just me trying to imagine myself at university, and what it’d be like to go to class, and then graduate and get a good job. So, I guess just the future, really. Nothing exciting XD
4. What are one or two things that made you smile today?
My cat being an adorable little shit. I’m not kidding, normally he wants nothing to do with me, and will run away the minute I get near him, but when I came downstairs today my sister was playing with him, and he actually ran over to me for fuss. (In-case anyone wonders why I call him a little shit, it’s because he’s a pain in the ass half the time and will start running round the house like he’s being chased, and will jump up on the cabinets and knock stuff over, or just use one of the chairs in my living room as a scratching post, despite the fact he has a perfectly usable scratching post RIGHT NEXT TO IT)
5. The last meal you had consisted of…?
Salmon and cucumber sandwich on oatmeal bread, and a cheese roll
6. You are now a character in the last TV show you watched. What’s your agenda looking like at the moment?
Oh dear, the last show I watched was Seconds From Disaster, and it was about the 1996 Mount Everest disaster (If you want to learn about it, look here [x]) So in short, my agenda would be attempting to reach the summit of Mount Everest, being delayed in doing so, then freezing to death in a blizzard/storm. BRILLIANT!
7. Three things on your bucket list?
I don’t actually have a bucket list at the moment, although I kinda wish I did. I just haven’t really thought about it before, and part of me thinks that a lot of the things I might put on there would be impossible/highly impractical, but then I’d feel bad about not doing them. That said, I do like the idea of having one, because it’s something to aim for, and it’s nice to do. Ugh, I haven’t really answered the question at all, but oh well. I want to start coming up with a bucket list, but I just haven’t started yet, so I’ll get back to you once I have one
8. First thing that pops into your head when I say “fire”?
A mixture between “Are my pets safe?” (because seriously, I hate fire. I really hate it) the song Fire by Arthur Brown and the song Fire Fire by Flyleaf. One of those is more practical than the others XD
9. Describe your favorite place to go to be alone.
There’s nowhere in my house that I can really be alone, since it’s so busy. So I guess one of my favourite places to be alone is just out of the house. If I had to pick a specific place, it’d be in the fields or in the forest at this one campsite my family’s gone to every year for the past five or six years. It’s just really relaxing there.
10. What is the best way to cheer you up when you’re feeling down?
I guess this sort of depends on why I’m feeling down. Getting my mind off whatever it is that’s making me feel down helps in some situations. But if it’s something like school, or me putting off something that I really need to do, then doing that isn’t going to help because I always start worrying more like “I know I’ve got to do this at some point, and I’m just putting it off because I don’t like it”. I guess just talking things through/being supportive also helps. One thing that always seems to help is just listening to music; it doesn’t really matter what music, because my tastes are pretty wide. Listening to Ludovico Einaudi is really relaxing, so that’s normally my go-to composer (seriously, if you haven’t, check out some of his songs on youtube. They’re beautiful) Other than that, fangirling with me over tv shows or pretty much anything works in about 98% of all situations.
11. Least favorite animal?
Does this include insects? If it does, then wasps I guess. I don’t find them creepy or anything, they’re just really fucking annoying. Or ticks perhaps, but I don’t really class them as animals tbh.
As far as animals that freak me out, it’s really only the Panama Creature [x] and the Montauk Monster [x] and also just any of the dead things on this website [x] WARNING: Those links do link to websites showing dead and partially decomposed animals/things, so if you don’t like to look at that, then don’t click on them! (And yeah, these don’t really count considering they’re just corpses of other animals, but still. Like I know that the Panama Creature was shown to just be a sloth whose corpse had been left to float in the water for a couple of days, hence the hair loss, and I know that the Montauk Monster was apparently just a raccoon or something, but I still find them creepy)
I don’t actually have a least favourite animal. I’m not really scared of bugs and even if they’re kinda unpleasant, I don’t hate them, like even cockroaches or spiders or scorpions and stuff. Even some of the weird looking ones, I still find really cool, like the Anglerfish or the Aye-Aye for example. Ooh, tangent time! I’ve actually fed an Aye-Aye, while I was doing work experience at a safari park.
Idk, I just find animals really fascinating. Even if they don’t look particularly nice, I can appreciate that they still fill a niche in the ecosystem, and they still have their own role to play. Sorry if I went slightly animal science nerd on you. I also really feel like just listing a load of animals that I find really cool, but I’m not going to because it’d be boring for anyone but me XD
Okay, I’ll actually try and come up with my own questions this time. Here goes:
1. What is something you’ve wanted to do all your life, and have you made any progress with it?
2. Are there any unusual skills or abilities you have? What are they? If you don’t, what is one skill/ability you wish you had?
3. What is one topic that you’re really passionate about? One that you research and put loads of time/effort into just for fun, even if it has nothing to do with school work?
4. If money was no object, what would you do with the rest of your life?
5. Are there any books you’ve been meaning to read/movies or tv shows you’ve been meaning to watch, that you just haven’t gotten round to yet? What are they?
6. What was your favourite present that you got for your last birthday?
7. How long have you been on tumblr, and who got you into it?
8. What do you think you’d be like as a person if you’d never joined tumblr?
9. What is one thing you take for granted?
10. What is something you’re proud of/worked hard to achieve?
11. You are granted any three superpowers of your choosing. Which would you choose and why?
Okay then, anyone who follows me can answer these, because I’d love to see your answers. But specifically, I’m going to tag anythingyoucanshipicanshipharder, theangelsstoletheimpala, igotoseekmygreatperhaps, frenchlellama, villzain
