If you make art of any kind: What would you say your creative/art style is? Do you have a favorite medium you regularly use? Feel free to show something you made! ✍🏻🎨🖼️

I don't draw, illustrate, paint... really anything that is outside the digital realm. I love to make things such as logos come alive, I've amimated a few for the student organization I'm a part of. Then I primarily like to shoot videos and take pictures! There I often use a lense which lets in a lot of light. Which creates a lot of shallow depth of field, and makes it so I can be very purposeful with what the camera focuses on! It also makes clean looking videos even in darker conditions 📸🎥

When traveling, would you rather fly on an airplane alone or road trip with friends?

When it comes to the actual journey, I'd much rather go on a roadtrip with friends! I generally don't like traveling alone, the one time I've flown alone I knew I had friends waiting for me when I arrived. If that was the case, I wouldn't mind traveling by myself again. It was one of my most memorable trips, meeting up with them made those hours by myself at the airport worth it 😊💙

What is something you would never spend money on, even if you could technically afford it? 🙅

anonamouse89887’s Profile Photoanonamouse
I'd never buy plane tickets to Dubai! As an urban planning student, I cringe every time I think of that city. It embodies everything that can go wrong in urban development 😒🏙️
Sum of it is, they built a city in the middle of nowhere with the only purpose of attracting those seeking luxury. Incorporating many of the worst urban planning practices in the process, such as vast American style suburbs and huge highways dividing the city. This makes cars the only viable way to get around as there is no public transport to speak of. Then there are the flashy and completely pointless skyscrapers, including the Burj Khalifa which doesn't even have a functioning sewer system. Every day tens of trucks arrive to suck everything out. They have endless golf courses which require an absolutely eyewatering amount of irrigation to stay alive. To top it all off you have the palm islands, built by destroying acres of coral reefs, the one biologically diverse area which was worth saving. Instead of building on the endless amounts of desert space, they're left with an island chain which is sinking for everyday that goes and is very vulnerable to climate change. Soon it won't just be the famous hotel on there which will be called Atlantis.
They had all the money and space to spare to make a truly unique city, one which could've been a celebration of Middle-Eastern culture which would still attract tourists but for a different and more meaningful reason. Instead they chose to cater to the worst in society. Cherry on top, it was built on sl@ve labor, desperate people from places like India and Bangladesh are tricked to come and work in construction. Passports are taken and wages withheld for months. Not earning nearly enough to send money to their families, often relying on borrowing money to even survive, making a return home even more impossible.
(Not my picture. But look at that suburban dystopia 😨)

Sea turtles are by far my favorite animals! And I feel like I relate to them a lot, I wouldn't mind crusing around coral reefs all day Haha When I was in Australia and took pictures like this one, I felt like I never wanted to leave 📸🐢

What’s something that you’ve recently become interested in/developed a passion for? Can be anything! (For example, I’ve become very interested in learning mythology lately, even bought some books about it). 🤔🤩

anonamouse89887’s Profile Photoanonamouse
Since I spend so much of my time studying and with my many passions such as moviemaking, swimming, D&D etc., it's very rare that I develop new passions nowadays! There's just no time for more 😅 Sometimes I get caught up learning something specific within one of those passions! The most recent thing I can think of is that I've started playing more Sea of Thieves again! So I've been watching PVP tutorials and such to try and get better 🏴‍☠️

I love going somewhere with plenty of diving opportunities! Sure, walking through historic city streets is always nice but I do so almost every day where I live. Diving with sea turtles in Australia was one of the highlights of my life and travelling down under gave me plenty of other opportunities to see various other kinds of wildlife! Like koalas, kangaroos and penguins. It's still the coolest place I've been to and I wouldn't mind travelling there again 🇦🇺

As many tend to quote: "New year, New you" - What is something "new" that you strive for, this year? 🤪🎉

I strive to take care of myself more. To give myself time to chill and recharge! Instead of being occupied with 100 things at once. Though I've already had a setback since I became the head of marketing for the student musical I'm part of. I hope though that with us being a much bigger team than last semester that I can divide the work in a way which makes it more fun and less hectic for all of us 😊

redoasis2017’s Profile Photo★ ☮ ♫ TEᑎᗩᑕIOᑌᔕ TOᗰᗰᗩY™ ▩ ♚ ☻
Simply that people show that they think about me and actively want to spend time with me. Friends who take the first step to plan game nights etc. are the best! I was often the one who organised meetups but it gets tiring in the end when you're the only one doing so. Of course, I still don't mind taking the initiative occasionally but it's always reassuring when friends do the same 😊

What are some of your go-to skincare products? Any particular brands you prefer/stick with? 🧖

anonamouse89887’s Profile Photoanonamouse
I mainly use various kinds of moisturizer but those are more of the medical variety! Canoderm and a certain other one from my local pharmacy are two I use! Since I'm prone to get occasional eczema and my hands especially often get very dry in the winter 🥴 Taking my fingerprints is basically impossible cause of it. Was a major headache when that was mandatory when entering Japan and China lol

If you could invent anything that would make your own life easier, what would it be?

A machine that would stop time for everyone but me would be beyond useful! Am I at a party which I want to feel energetic and myself for but actually I'm super tired? Just stop time and take a nap. Have I procrastinated to the last minute with an assignment? Just stop time and do it in no rush and as well as if I had started days earlier. There'd be so many possibilities 🤩

What makes you feel calm/at peace with oneself? 🧘‍♂️🌿🧘‍♀️#Namaste🙏😛

Nothing helps to clear my mind better than being in water. To let myself lower my heartrate before I go for a dive, so I can be down there for longer. Then when I swim, the sound and feel of water rushing past me is very therapeutic 😌🏊

Do you get swoon by someone’s voice?

alpharean’s Profile PhotoChatter Box
I definitely can! There are some who can make me weak just hearing them speak Haha Jennifer English, the voice actress behind Shadowheart in Baldur's Gate 3 has such a nice speaking voice, even when she isn't in character. Alanah Pearce has a really nice voice as well, I often listen to the podcasts she hosts and I can honestly listen to her speak all day 🥰🙈

Tobbe, you ask such wonderful questions and contribute so much to our little online world - how do you think of so many questions?! Would you ever consider working in a field that involves your ability to bring out the best in people?

origamibirds’s Profile Phototea.
Aww, thank you!!!! Reading that made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside 😊🤗 I mainly get inspiration from what happens in my own life. One can definitely get a feel for what I've been dealing with just by looking at the questions I send! Then others are inspired my movies / youtube videos I've watched, video games I've played etc., especially the more hypothetical questions! Well, as an urban planning student I sort of strive for that! In my future work I hope to create spaces which brings out the best in people 🏙️

To those whose 2nd language is english and have watched TV series or movies in english - do you ever feel like rewatching anything from your past because you might understand the plot better?

M1ssSemy’s Profile PhotoStar. i
Well, I was generally quite good at English when I was younger, so I don't think I had an issue understanding the words said. Therefore I haven't felt a need to revisit movies for that reason. Though, with age comes experience and you understand movies in a whole other way. When I've revisited movies like The Incredibles I've gotten such a deeper appreciation for them. You catch the nuance of the story and what the characters are going through. You relate to them a lot more than when you were a kid 🤯

Do you have any home videos from your childhood? If so, have you ever watched them back? Any memorable moments you can recall? 🎥📼

anonamouse89887’s Profile Photoanonamouse
I have quite a few home videos but haven't watched them in a long while honestly! I remember videos of me at the zoo and many from when I was a competitive swimmer! I have a few from when I was on stage as a kid. Actually used to have a decent singing voice, did solo parts of "Hallelujah" and "We are the world" in front of the whole school. The hardest to watch though are ones when I'm speaking, since I talked very differently back then 🙉😂

I recently became the head of the marketing team for the student musical I'm part of and I got the list of new members yesterday, so I've been setting everything up for when we start next week. Planning on hosting an initiation event at my place with some tacos and Mario Kart. Since everyone is new but me, I thought it'll be a nice way for all of us to get to know each other 🌮🎮
Then today I've been busy helping my family set up a tool shed! Am taking a small break now but we'll soon be at it again 🔧

I had a great day! My parents had rented a venue where we celebrated with the extended family! We ate some good food, including a blue princess cake! Am very happy with the gifts I got, new curtains for my place, a new lamp among a few other things. I was especially happy with a set of new really fancy D&D dice with a liquid core which I got from two faraway friends! The D20 especially is so cool and have now become my favorite to use! In the evening I invited a few friends over to my place for some drinks and Mario Kart, we were up loooong into the night! Then the day after I had a call with another faraway friend where she revealed a painting which she had made for me! Judging by the pictures, it looks so coool! She had it shipped to me and it actually arrived today! Have been away the whole day for studies but am very excited to open it once I get home and to eventually have it framed! 🥰🎁

What did your childhood bedroom look like? Any particular theme(s) you went for? If you had multiple rooms due to moving: Maybe describe one of your favorites? 🛏️

anonamouse89887’s Profile Photoanonamouse
I always lived in one room up until I moved out since my family never moved! It underwent a few changes throughout the years though! I can't quite remember what it looked like at first but I remember wanting a Jurassic Park themed room! So I had a metal bunk bed sort of resembling a fence, with a desk underneath. I had an original poster from when Jurassic Park was showing in theatres and then my dad painted an absolutely gorgeous mural with a jungle and fence with the shadow of a T-Rex among the trees. Later on I had my room turned white and had black and white IKEA furniture in there to make it look more "mature" but looking back on it, that themed room was pretty darn cool 😊🦖

Hey Tobbe! How's it going? 😊 Have you ever tried generating artwork using AI?😁

korndude’s Profile PhotoKoЯnDuDe
Hey!! Long time no see! Well, I honestly haven't delved too much into AI art! Just occasionally to try and recreate my D&D character for example! It didn't go too well honestly since there were so many specific details I wanted! Not like AI understands what "Splint Armor with dwarven runes carved into it" and "A belt with an obelisk as it's buckle" means 😂 Baldur's Gate 3 proved to be a better place to recreate him! His name is Thorulf and is a Dwarven war cleric! Though here with not as fancy armor as he's currently wearing in my D&D playthrough!

I first joined ask during middle school! I mainly just asked questions to my classmates and such back then. With time, the app started to die down in Sweden and I got less active. Until I got the idea of reaching out to international people! I've been active on here since then in various ways, including what I currently do which is mainly focusing on asking questions. That's what I mainly have time for with my generally busy schedule and I feel like it's what I do best to make this place not feel as barren 😊

What skill/ability do you think others notice and admire about you? ☺️👍🎉

And also: "What is a skill and/or ability you have, that you personally embrace and wholeheartedly admire about yourself? ☺️✨🧘‍♂️⚖️🧘‍♀️✨"
To answer both of your questions, I'll have to say filmmaking for both! It's the craft and skill I've ben honing the longest and I'll have to say, I've gotten pretty good at it! Also, since I tend to make after movies from events which many of my friends take part in, I often get a lot of positive feedback! One movie I made which was shown in front of 600+ people at a ball last year made people go crazy! They were whistling and cheering at certain parts and laughing throughout! 😊🎥
And @melcfriendly to answer your question, since it ties into this theme!: "What movies do you enjoy watching and how do the movies you make yourself differ?"
Well, I love watching movies made by greats such as Edgar Wright! Though my favorite movie of all time has to be Django Unchained! The movies I make are often shorter promotional videos or after-movies! Though the movie I mentioned above which was shown at a ball was a parody of The Wolf of Wall Street! It was a lot of fun to make, since it was quite a bit longer at 7 minutes and I got to pull out all my cinematic tricks when making it 🎬
Here's a screenshot of a clip I included in one of my promotional videos:

When you have a sweet tooth, what do you usually crave? What kind of flavors do you like best? (Sour, fruity, chocolatey, etc?) 🍰🍪🍦🍫

anonamouse89887’s Profile Photoanonamouse
I more often have a savoury tooth! It's much more common for me to crave stuff like burgers, pizzas etc. But if I do crave something sweet, it's often ice cream. Especially vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce! At this time of year, I've also sometimes been craving "Semlor", it's the season for those rn! 🤤

I'd describe my decor style as quite minimalistic! I like walnut and everything in the spectrum between black and white! Match that with warm lighting and bingo! Even my gaming stuff I try to keep somewhat subdued, I have a monitor which don't look like a crashed spaceship for example Haha One thing I have throughout my place are pictures I've taken on my travels! 🖼️🛋️

You discover a new inhabitable planet, describe it! What’s it's name? How does it look from space? What's the climate like? What wildlife and vegetation can one expect to see? 👩‍🚀✨

anonamouse89887’s Profile Photoanonamouse
I welcome you to Irilia! From space, it appears glowingly blue. Not only cause it's completely covered in oceans, at the surface lays a thick layer of bioluminescent algae. Said layer is so thick, that almost no sunlight seeps through into the depths below. With the light from the algae not being as sufficient as pure sunlight, it gets dark quick as you dive down. Due to the planet being on the closer end of the goldilock zone, the water is surprisingly warm for the lack of sunlight. The darkness doesn't mean the planet is lifeless, far from it. Like the algae above, many of the creatures and vegetation which inhabit Irilia glow intensively, in various different colors to keep themselves distinct and to try and trick predators. One of these predators, appear almost as big sea serpents, but with three sails along it's body which glow in a striking red color 🌌
And to answer your follow up question, "How would you promote said planet to encourage others to settle there? 📺📡📄":
I don't think I'd necessarily encourage people to settle there, maybe as a quirky vacation retreat! The people visiting would be living in large underwater resorts, with thick glass to keep them safe from the beautiful yet deadly creatures lurking in the waters outside! But from there, they could take in all the sights!It's too dangerous to go out and hunt for supplies outside, so a secure shuttle has been constructed to freight people and goods from the surface to the resorts 😬
I have answered a similar question before, since I still like that concept I came up with then, I'll link it here: https://ask.fm/TobbeAsks/answers/170304697977?utm_source=copy_link&utm_medium=android
