Which country will win the FIFA World Cup in Brazil?
I'm not sure, I'm not that knowledgeable when it comes to football, or sports in general. Although, I do get the impression that England won't win.
Do you think you're brave?
I know I want to be. And I think I can be. Obviously there are times when I don't feel very brave at all. But I do try to be. I try to do things with this quote (which was, of course, said by the eloquent and intelligent Taylor Swift) in mind: "Bravery happens to different people in different ways. I think it can be as simple as saying what you mean, it could be as simple as being honest with who you are or who you love. I think it doesn't have to be some courageous act where there's a movie score in the background. I think bravery can happen in little tiny doses everyday."
haha... so this is real awkward for me but I really love your writing - especially when you write for jara (10 days), and you might see me as writingdawn on ff.net :) i don't really know if we've talked, but I've spoken to Jasmine and Rachel over the summer last year :) this is weird okay bye :) x
Aw, thank you so much. I think I did see you, you reviewed something of mine and I've been meaning to reply to you for a while. I'll reply to your review this weekend and then we can talk properly. (It's a bit difficult to have a conversation on here). And this isn't weird or awkward. It's cool.
What motivates you?
Certain songs (e.g. Brave by Sara Bareilles), deadlines, and rewards (e.g. I'm motivated to revise because the reward will be the grades I need to get into university).
When you go to a movie, do you like to sit in the back, middle, or front?
How do you cheer up a friend when they're feeling down?
Try to make sure that you understand why they're feeling down, so perhaps you can help them solve any problems. Be sympathetic but not patronising. Don't compare their problems to yours and make it about you, telling them your problems are worse than theirs is only going to make them feel like they don't matter as much. Just listen. Give them chocolate, or they're preferred snack food. Give them a hug. Tell them you love them. Listen to their favourite music with them, even if it's not your favourite music, and dance along, using your most ridiculous dance moves. Watch their favourite movie or TV show with them. Buy them a thoughtful gift. In general, just show them you care.
How to know if you are a good person?
Well, there can be a lot of things that make you a good person. I think you can know you're a good person when you always try to think of how your actions and words can affect others, when you want to make people feel better rather than worse, and when you are nice for the sake of being nice, not just because you want something out of being nice. But those are just a few examples, like I said, there are lots of things that can make someone a good person.
What sound drives you crazy?
Nails scraping against anything or other sounds like that. *Shivers*.
Post some funny animated GIF.
I'm not sure if that is grammatically correct and it's more a demand than a question, but alright. Here are the Ood....
What do you see from your bedroom window?
The countryside, and in the evening I can see the sunset.
Who do you trust most in your life?
My family and closest friends... And my guinea pigs (I'm not too sure about the chickens though, I mean, they're pretty harmless, but can you really trust a creature that sometimes pecks at its own eggs?).
I think I'm going to have to say (and everyone who knows me is going to sigh at my predictability because of this) Taylor Swift. I think she has a very honest and emotive voice and I like that she has an input in all of her music, all of her songs are either created completely by herself or in collaboration with someone else. I really like the style of music she creates and I like that she uses the fame that her career has given her to be a good role model and to give to charity.
I love music though, so I have quite a few more favourite singers, like Jessie J and Christina Perri, to name just a couple.
What kind of pet would you like to have in the future?
When I have my own house I would quite like to have a cat and a dog, or maybe two cats and a dog. I think that would be lovely. And guinea pigs too!
What was your first word?
I don't know, I don't think my parents remember! :P
Have you bought any clothing items in the last week?
No, I don't think so.
What one thing do you need to do next?
There isn't really just the one thing... I need to get a part-time job, I need to do work on coursework and revision and homework...
Have you ever fired a real gun?
Are you still friends with someone from kindergarten?
I've never been to anything called 'kindergarten' and I'm not sure what the English equivalent would be. I am not in touch with anyone from my play school but I am still friends with people from Reception (kind of like a Year 0, the year before Year 1) at Primary School.
How many pillows do you sleep with?
Five, but some of them are small ones. (I bet people will find that so interesting. Or not.)
What is your favorite piece of clothing?
It's a bit difficult to choose because I have a few dresses that I really like. There's the dress I wore to prom, which is long and purple and sparkly. Then there's the dress I'm going to wear to my Taylor Swift concert, which is short(ish) and red and sparkly. And there's this cute little dress covered in musical notes and a blue and white striped skater dress. I like dresses. Oh, but I do have these blue and white striped trousers that fit me really well that I love. So, basically I like clothes and I can't pick my favourite piece...is the summary of that. Yup.
What is your favorite non-social networking website?
I think this is supposed to be non-social-networking website. Because non-social networking website implies a networking website that is not social. Which doesn't make too much sense. But, oh well, I suppose I'm just being pedantic or fussy or whatever.
But assuming this does mean a website that is not for social networking, then I think I'd have to say taylorswiftweb.net because I love it for finding out news about Taylor and seeing new pictures of her.
If you could change your skin color to anything outside of the natural palette of skin colors, what color would you choose?
Probably blue, maybe a pale blue, that would probably look cool.
What’s one mistake you keep repeating?
Procrastination, probably. Finding motivation can be difficult, but I'm working on that.
You are allowed one beverage for the rest of your life. What would you choose?
Probably just water. I know it sounds boring but logically it's the best thing to choose, really.
Describe your life in five words?
College, music, internet, writing, reading, friends, family... Oh, wait, sorry! That's seven. But it's difficult to narrow it down, so think of the extra two as bonus words!
