❀ What is your dream?

I have many small dreams that come and go. Currently I’d like to have a library room/alcove with wall to ceiling bookshelves and a reading nook.

❀ Digimon or Pokemon? 

Pokemon. My sister and I could never remember the Digimon song so we used to make up weird versions of it.

❀ Do you have any secrets that eat at you?

I can open up about little things, but when something big happens in my life I tend to internalize it and go on emotional lock-down (as I don’t want to burden others). It’s not a healthy behavior.

❀ What is your strangest eating habit?

I eat a bowl of cereal almost every night at around 9:45pm. I can feel when my cereal time draws near, like a sixth sense.

❀ Is there something that you wanted to tell someone but missed the chance to?

I wish that I had given different advice once to a certain person. It wouldn’t have made a difference in a someones death, but even years later I still can’t help but play the “what if” game in my mind.

❀ If you could vacation in any fictional or real location, where would it be? 

Moominvalley. I would like to take a room in the Moomin house and have a meal served by Moomin Mama. Then I would wander the forests with Snufkin.

❀ What piece of advice would you give to anyone?

Being willing to learn new things is better than already thinking you know everything.

❀ Have you ever lived outside your home country? (Where and why please!)

As a teen I spent a few summers in the Swedish countryside. It was idyllic, and something that I will never forget. I have family in Japan and have stayed there for extended periods teaching and vacationing. I live and work in Southeast Asia right now, which is starting to feel more like home.

❀ Is happiness overrated? 

I think that being happy is important, but I also think that acknowledging sadness/anger/etc as a part of life is important too. We tend to associate happiness as a goal to be reached, or an economic state, and often don’t take enough time to appreciate the small moments around us for the beauty they hold.

❀ What times do you like to wake up and go to bed at?

I like to wake up around eight and go to bed around midnight. However work doesn’t let me do that ;_;

❀ How do you feel about spoilers?

When the last Harry Potter book came out I bought it, hid in my room, and didn’t leave or check the internet for two days until I had finished the book. I’ll just leave it at that.

My 11 Questions:

❀ Who would win in a fight, a crab or a lobster?

❀ What is your earliest memory?

❀ What was your favorite toy growing up?

❀ Savory or Sweet?

❀ What is your favorite animal and why?

❀ What object (not counting people, pets etc) would you save in a fire?

❀ What dish can you cook really well? (if none, please explain).

❀ What is the nicest compliment you have ever received?

❀ Do you believe in love at first sight or consider it a literary cliche?

❀ Have you ever made something by hand that you were proud of. If so, what?

❀ Who is your #1 OTP
