Out of all the places you've travelled to, where was your favourite place? And why did you pick it? 😊✈️

LouisaRHale’s Profile PhotoLou
I'll have to say Australia! My whole trip around Au and Asia was a true trip of a lifetime but the month I spent down under was absolutely amazing! We travelled along the east coast, from Melbourne in the south to Cairns in the north. I ticked off a lot of things from my bucket list. I saw wild penguins, koalas, kangaroos and got to visit Sydney. Last but not least I ticked off my number one thing which was to dive with a wild sea turtle! It was so sweet, just minded it's own business and ate jellyfish while I swam next to it and watched 💙🇦🇺

Post a photo, or anything that was from this year, that makes you smile. Can be a photo you took at some point, something you made, or something you saw elsewhere that you have a good memory of from this year.

This was the last photo I took after a long and fun day at Efteling in the Netherlands with friends. We had stepped out from the last ride we went on and looked out over the park, with the blue lights from the Baron 1898 coaster reflecting against the water. I have so many fond memories going there, such as when we ate stroopwafel covered pancakes and spun a certain ride so hard I was preeetty wobbly afterwards. Honestly, the whole week I spent there last summer was quite unforgettable 💙🇳🇱

Hello, I am from Slovakia and Sweden is one of my dream countries. I would like to know, how would you rate your country. Is it good place to live? Also, what is your major?

AndreaValaskova’s Profile PhotoAvana
Sweden can be amazing! 🇸🇪
We have things I think the whole world should embrace, like free higher education and healthcare. Students even get PAYED in benefits to study, not much but still 💵
There is gorgeous nature, which is made easier to explore and experience thanks to laws which allows you to walk on private property as long as you are respectful. Sweden has a rich history which is reflected in the beautiful old architecture in most Swedish city centres. Many palaces and mansions can also be found in the countryside 🏰
It's also a country where you're truly free to be who you want to be, cause of the longstanding separation between religion and state. Some of the best pastries can be found here too, from princess cakes and chocolate balls to "semlor" 🍰
But there are times when it's not so amazing. There's been an increased amount of violent crime and substance abuse recently. In the town where I live it's apparently very easy to get a hold of dr*gs if you want to. I don't notice it in my regular life though, except for the ways my student organization tries to crack down on it. I think it very much has to do with what kinds of circles you're in. You also often hear about shootings and gang wars in the news 😨
It may not be perfect but comparitively speaking, I still think Sweden is a great place to live. I'd be hard pressed to come up with many better alternatives 😊
And I'll soon have my bachelor's degree in urban planning! 🎓

What was Christmas like for you growing up? Did your family have any specific traditions you always looked forward to? What would you typically have for Christmas dinner? Did you have a special dessert/treat of some sort that you now associate with the holidays? 🎄🎁✨

anonamouse89887’s Profile Photoanonamouse
@JoyouslyJoanna, @GlindaBells this also answers similar questions you two asked 😊
Christmas has always sorta been the same for me. As far as I know we haven't changed traditions really ever Haha 🎅
But I always looked forward to watching a certain Disney Christmas special featuring Christmas cards from different characters which tell of their various adventures, through clips from movies like The Jungle Book, Robin Hood etc. It's something many Swedish familes has as a tradition. Since it's aired on national TV at 3 pm, that's when we begin our celebrations, by watching it. When we watch said special we also drink mulled wine 📺🇸🇪
Soon followed is dinner, which features various traditional Swedish Christmas foods! I'll post a picture below but examples include meatballs, sausages, herring with various sauces, casserole, ham etc. 🐟🥔
After dinner we open presents, which of course was the biggest highlight growing up. For dessert afterwards, we have something called ris à la malta, which is sort of like a sweetened porridge 🎁
We end the day by playing a certain Christmas gift game where you take turns rolling dice. If you get a 1 or a 6 during the first round of rolls, you take a cheap gift from a pile. Once all gifts are taken, a timer is set for like 10 min or so and the second round begins. Then if you roll a 1 or a 6 you get to take a gift from someone else. The round ends when the timer rings and the presents you then have collected you get to keep. During both rounds, if you roll a 6 you get to roll again 🎲

What are some goals you have for yourself, this 2023? ☺️🎉🥂

Coolio247’s Profile PhotoJustine Coolioness
@JoyouslyJoanna Figured I'd tag you, since this also answers a similar question you sent 😊
Last semester was quite intense for me, studying a course in political science at 100% speed while also writing my thesis. Now all of that is behind me and I'm now looking forward to a more chill semester. I'll be taking a course in CAD at 25% speed starting next week and one in graphical design at 50% speed starting in March. I also aim on working a bit on the side. I want to put more effort on keeping up a good workout schedule and get better at cooking. I've recently become a movie foreman at the student organization I'm active in. So another goal of mine is to make some real nice after movies and commercials 🎬🏊🍳

How do you typically celebrate your birthday, if you do? Who do you normally celebrate with? Do you have a favorite birthday meal/dessert that you look forward to? Which birthday would you say has been most memorable for you? (Inspired by it being my birthday today!) 🥳🎂

anonamouse89887’s Profile Photoanonamouse
I did congratulate you on the actual day but happy (very belated) birthday! 🥳😂 In recent years, I've been celebrating my birthday differently each year! So I don't have that one meal etc. that I look forward to! One year I had a joint party with a classmate who has his birthday on the same day. Last year I had a dinner with my family where we had some good food and cake. In less than two weeks time I plan on having some cake at my place with friends and then we'll be heading out to a pub or restaurant, it's yet to be decided 🍻🍰

You've found yourself in Hogwarts, which house you'd most likely be in? - what spells would you use the most? Who would you try to befriend/ and who would be your favourite professor?

M1ssSemy’s Profile PhotoStar. i
I'd most likely be in Hufflepuff, that's what the house sorting tests tell me at least! 🦡💛
Apparate would be real useful, to travel anywhere on the spot! 🎒
If I was around at Hogwarts at the same time as Harry I'd probably try to befriend Luna Lovegood. Her love of certain creatures and other peculiar things is something I think we would share 👻
Speaking of beasts, my favorite professor would probably be Hagrid! I'd offer my help to take care of the creatures in his possession 🐉

To those who love playing video games. What got you into it? Share your story! What about the very first game you've played? Do you still play "old" games out of nostalgia?🎮

M1ssSemy’s Profile PhotoStar. i
I had been into various PC games from an early age, like various point and click games! But I'd say my interest in games kicked into high gear when my dad got us a PS2 one Christmas Eve. I fondly remember sitting in front of the TV playing LEGO Star Wars right after we unboxed it. Let's just say, I've been an avid gamer ever since. I don't necessarily revisit old games in that sense. I get enough nostalgia watching clips of people playing those 🎮

What makes you feel most supported/loved by the people in your life? What are some indicators of a truly supportive person, in your opinion? What’s the last thing someone did/said that made you feel very loved? 🥰

anonamouse89887’s Profile Photoanonamouse
What makes me feel loved the most is people wanting to spend time with me. Them asking if I want to hang out is the biggest sign that they are worth having around, since nothing is as valuable as someone's time. I've had friendships in the past when it was always I who got everyone together and it was very tiring. Though, latest thing which made me feel loved was someone telling me they'll be sending me a gift for my birthday! I'm also a sucker for things with sentimental value 🥰

What is one trope or cliche in movies or television that you just can't stand? For me, it's love triangles... I just think they've been done to death! 📺

JoyouslyJoanna’s Profile PhotoOh hello, it's Jo.
The "liar reveal" trope is one I can gladly be without. When a character is pretending to be someone they aren't etc. you KNOW that's where the movie is heading. Then they'll have like 10 minutes of everyone shunning them when their secret is revealed. It's always forgiven by like one heroic / kind act and all is good again. It's so done to death it's insane 😂

Do you wear jewelry often? If so, what do you typically like to wear? Do you like to wear the same pieces constantly, or do you tend to switch it up? Maybe post a pic of your favorite piece? 💍💎

anonamouse89887’s Profile Photoanonamouse
I generally don't wear jewelry! Closest thing is that I wear some kind of watch but ever since I got a Garmin fitness watch that's what I've been having on my wrist most of the time! It's revolutionized the way I swim on my own. Before I just set out to swim for an hour or so but with it tracking roughly how far I swim I can set out a distance goal 🏊

What’s your favorite thing to do on the weekends?

Since I'm active in a student organization and also just became a movie foreman, many Fridays or Saturdays are spent at appreciation parties and other events! I also play Dungeons & Dragons with a group of friends every other Sunday or so. Other than that, it's usually a time for me to go to the gym and spend time gaming 😊

I'm grateful for the fact that I'm done with all stuff at uni and I can finally just have a weekend to take it chill and do whatever I feel like! It's been ages since I didn't have anything looming over me. Ever since I handed in my thesis and especially when it ended up passing I've felt so free! 😌🥳

When was the last time you did something for the first time, what was it?

JoyouslyJoanna’s Profile PhotoOh hello, it's Jo.
I played with someone across the Atlantic for the first time a few days ago! I was expecting us to have constant disconnects etc. but it went surprisingly well! We had a long session on the Sea of Thieves with no real issues and it was lots of fun 🏴‍☠️

What age did you move out of your family home, or if you haven't yet, how old do you hope to move out, if at all (no shame, living with parents 😊)?

LouisaRHale’s Profile PhotoLou
I was 21 when I moved out! I felt like I had it way too comfortable at home. Like, I wouldn't learn how to cook etc. unless I forced myself to. No better way to do that than to move out! So improving on such skills was one thing I did during the pandemic. It was also nice to live with seven others in a dorm since that meant we could have game nights, parties etc. together since we were considered as one household 🥳

If you celebrate Christmas, what is the gift you are most excited to give someone? 🤪🎉🎁🎄

Coolio247’s Profile PhotoJustine Coolioness
I was most excited to give my sister's boyfriend a copy of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PS4. He had been talking about what a shame it was that it no longer was on the PlayStation subscription service and it was one of the games he wanted to try on there. Imagine his surprise when he opened my gift! I was more than happy to give it to him, the game is an absolute masterpiece in my opinion! 🤩

Is it standard to write a thesis for a bachelors degree in Sweden? It is generally not required in the U.S.

Neo_gs’s Profile PhotoNeo
It's very much required, yes! Afterwards you also have to defend it's contents and also oppose someone else's thesis! 😬
I'm gonna use this post to also say that I'll be spending much of my time writing it during the upcoming four weeks, so I probably won't be as active on here. I'll send out questions if I spontaneously come up with any but I won't go out of my way to do so. My keyboard's gonna burn 🔥

Do they decorate shopping malls/stores for christmas where you live? Is it something you look forward to? Does it help you to get into christmas mood? Is there a specific decoration that you love seeing in the mall? If you have a photo of mall- post it! I posted mine if you want to see it!👀☃️🎄 😁

M1ssSemy’s Profile PhotoStar. i
They do! But I'm usually a lot more excited to see the decorations in the city streets! Since I live closer to the city centre than the mall so that's where I do most of my shopping. I also just generally think Christmas decorations make the streets in the old town much cozier to walk on! Since I don't have any pictures like that, here's one of the Christmas decorations I put up in our dorm instead 🎄🌟

When you ask questions, what kind of answers deserve your attention? Do you expect people to give long or short answers? What's the worst answer you've received? 🤭

M1ssSemy’s Profile PhotoStar. i
Generally speaking I don't expect people to answer when I send out questions, it's just fun when they do. Length isn't really that important to me, what matters more is that I feel like they put thought into it. "I don't know" or "I don't play video games" when asked "IF you play video games, what's...." are examples of answers that bother me. Those make me go "Well, that's one ask notification I didn't need to recieve". Never being able to refrain from giving boring answers like those has been a reason for me unfollowing multiple people in the past 😴

When you listen to a song for the first time, would you say it’s mostly the beat or the lyrics that dictate how much you enjoy it? Or do they have equal significance to you? Does it change depending on the genre of music you’re listening to? 🎧🎶

anonamouse89887’s Profile Photoanonamouse
It very much depends on the genre of music, or more specifically if it's instrumental or not! When it comes to instrumental music it's obviously the beat and general sound that matters the most. While with music featuring someone who's singing, lyrics play a big part in my enjoyment of it. If it has lyrics that I don't exactly agree with it can honestly break a song for me 😬

I'd say so yeah!! Once my bachelor's thesis is done I feel like I can focus a bit more on other things than to accomplish the super big goals that have been weighing on me for a while, since I also took my driver's license earlier this year. 2022 has been stressful at times but with some really good moments too, such as when I went to The Netherlands this summer 🇳🇱
