When did you notice CY/start liking him? :-)

oh no how embarrassing (ノ)´∀`(ヾ) I honestly don't remember how it happened... only that it did and I want a refund. I went from hey exo's cute hey that one's cute to WOW I AM DESPERATELY SAD ABOUT HOW LOVELY YOU ARE :'''(
I paid attention to exo during their debut only because a few of my friends liked them and I had general positive feelings about their music, but I wasn't really invested enough at that point to have a favorite (only a few 'yeahhhh I like your face' feelings etc.) When XOXO came out, I got so excited about the concept/musicality behind it that I went and listened to it obsessively, which is also when everyone discovered chanyeol could SING and before I knew it, my heart kind of erupted because I have an eternal soft spot for rappers who sing :"( Following that, there was a week of intense denial and secret tumblr tag browsing before I came to terms with admitting that yeah chanyeol's face is mY faVOriTE. And then it just seemed like the more I found out about his personality, the more he cemented that position ♡ in my heart ♡. Silly sunshine boy with a heart of gold who knits and loves music and just wants people to need him :'(
the end bye
(psa don't talk to me about chanyeol in public)

list all the things that made you happy today, no matter big or small

1. I went through with my promise to hit the pool today even though it was FREEZING COLD so I'm proud of myself for not giving up. I managed 20 laps, which is less than my usual goal, but much better than I expected after a month of not doing it regularly. I've also been practicing my dolphin kick and I think I've improved a lot. I wish there were a way I could record myself so I can verify I don't look like a floppy fish, but I was really surprised when I surfaced and I'd travel a lot further than when I started working on it. My plan to become a mermaid princess is coming along nicely ( •ิ ε •ิ)
2. My mom trimmed some of the roses and now I have fresh flowers in my room ✿
3. I finished writing and posted two new blog entries that had been sitting in my drafts for almost a month
4. A galaxy 30 billion light-years away was discovered today and named the most distant galaxy ever found and that's so awesome: http://bbc.in/1eJyOMn

what are your feelings on park chanyeol pls explain in great detail

what else can I say that I didn't already write an embarrassing meta on??
I like park chanyeol a lot!! TOO MUCH!! I like his face sooooooooooo much (ღ˘⌣˘ღ) Also of course, his personality is so interesting - whenever he reveals something about himself, it's always surprising at first, but then it's like "oh he /would/." Like his secret mean streak/temperamental off-camera self and then oops did I tell you all that I'm super into romantic things and oh yeah I know how to knit and quilt? I get really excited that he doesn't seem to care about stereotypical gender norms like he shops for skincare and shops for perfume and he's totally down with telling everyone how much he loves his big sister. My kingdom for pcy ♕ I think he's so endearing and has a golden heart and I wish everyone could like him lots T^T

do you enjoy cooking

I don't KNOW. I think I'm ambivalent about cooking in general because I love food sooo much, but sometimes I get frustrated by how much time I have to put into cooking something when I can devour it in less than a quarter of the time it took to prep. It's definitely something I want to learn to be better at though and I really admire people who are dedicated and passionate about it because food culture is just so great?? I'm not completely lost in a kitchen - if you give me some groceries, I can manage something, but I can't guarantee it'll be outstanding and delicious. I won't starve to death though, y'know? (still can't manage French toast - don't look at me)

what kind of pizza do you like and why

I live near a Cascarino's brick oven pizzeria and they make a chicken broccoli thin crust pizza that I looooove. I don't know if that's a common or popular topping at all, but I've had it for years and it's always the topping combo I instinctively look for when I'm in the mood for pizza.

top 5 favorite eats in manhattan!

Aughhh I don't eat in Manhattan enough to have enough really have a favorites list (there's so much I still haven't tried), but some places/foods that I always think of:
1. The Chiuchow lo sui goose at Big Wing Wong's is to. die. for. People who go just for the char siu or roast duck are missing out on the real gem because their lo sui sauce is so flavorful ughhhh.
2. Chicken over rice from the Halal Guys on 53rd and 6th
3. The first time I had naengmyun was at BCD Tofu House in K-Town and so far, no other bowl has compared to the first time I had that icy cold vinegar broth mmmmm
4. Egg waffles in Chinatown, but only if the batter fills up the whole waffle iron, otherwise it's just as meh as the ones in Flushing

Hot pot dinner is one of my most favorites, but it takes so much work prepping all the ingredients. I'm usually really frustrated by the time I sit down to eat, but ugh yes hot pot is always an excuse to have the sliced fatty beef, which is one of the most delicious things on the planet. I would love to be able to throw a hot pot house party one day :'(
For some reason, lobster has been really affordable (meaning something like $5 a lb) in the late spring these last two years so I've really 有口福 (lucky to have delicious foods)

what is your favorite meal for dinner

Dinner is USUALLY rice & family style Chinese food tbh. If I had to pick my favorite dishes that we eat at home, maaaaaybe: steamed egg, ong choi w/ shrimp sauce, braised pork belly with taro. This is too hard, I love too much food :( Sometimes we have lobster and it's a dream. When dinner is HOTPOT, that's exciting.
If we're not talking Chinese dinner, I would probably go out and eat a vat of soondubu jjigae. I would be willing to drown in a vat of soondubu jjigae.

okay describe your ideal date with your bias of choice in detail GO

You already KNOW THE ANSWER because our answers are the same, erica! The perfect amusement park date ( ˘ ε ˘ ✿) Ferris wheels, maaaaaybe roller coasters, haunted houses, bumper cars, the arcade, playing a million ring tosses to win me giant stuffed animal and ✧COTTON CANDY✧ It's applicable regardless of bias, tbh! It's just 10,000x more enjoyable than the idea of sitting in the dark watching a movie to fill time/get conversation material.
Also maybe a little bit geeky, but possibly an art gallery/museum.

what is your favorite food to eat when snacking

I LOVE SALTY FOODS. It's my greatest weakness and I only ever crave salt, so when I need a snack, I go for anything with ~umami~. My current choices are dried seaweed, pistachios and these amaaaaazing onion & garlic peanuts we recently bought.
