Are you a fan of scary movies? If so, which ones do you enjoy the most? If not, do you like being frightened in other ways (e.g. through practical jokes or by reading spooky stories?)
And yes, I like to read and listen to spooky stories too. I recently got introduced to spooky podcast "Astonishing Legends" (however it's quite not spooky at times as well, but still great!!!) by @CaycePollard.
I like to send this question out every once in a while to see how people respond to it and if their answers have changed. :) What topics are you currently most interested in being asked here? What - if anything - do you prefer not to be asked about?
If you were to give someone a tour of your hometown, where would you take them first?
When it comes to my current city, I'm always marveled by the state church which is located here. So I'd probably take them there.
What websites do you go to everyday?
What kind of place do you think is ideal for the first date? Why do you think so?
HOWEVER I'VE NEVER BEEN ON A DATE SO WHO THE FUCK KNOWS
Ah, sorry, I forgot to remove anon! But yeah, I've been to Jay Fu's, but it's been quite some time since so wouldn't mind going there again :3
Wanna eat dinner at Ai somewhere around 25-28/1? Or Stationen, any is fine :3
It's also the reason I like Tokyo so much. It's a city with a great collection of modern/contemporary art museums, history and design museums.
Have you ever hurt someone?
It's a bad habit since my primary school days. Won't get away from it.
Do you have a lot of friends or a smaller group? And do you think it is better to have a large group of friends or a smaller tighter group?
Do you got a partner? If no, do you want one and and do you feel it might be happening soon?
Your favourite main theme music pieces? Whether anime, or not. By those I mean the pieces which share the show's name or get labelled with "MAIN THEME" in the soundtrack. I'm going with those as they signal intent on their creators' part.
What was your favorite childhood TV show?
Do you have a guilty pleasure? What is it?
Who are your favorite people to follow on Instagram?
How would you explain your basic life philosophy?
A mixture of the above or something.
How do you manage to make time balancing work and play (anime / games)?
MGSV so far seems like a daunting quest considering I've played way too many hours and still haven't reach 20% in total completion.
Why are people from all over the world so fascinated by Japanese culture?
As to why I find Japan interesting; once upon a time it was mainly because of it's pop culture. Nowadays? I'd rather like to think it's because of the Japanese society itself. It's rather cut off from the rest off the world in some aspects, even though that seems to be changing little by little. It's rather weird how a country basically has no immigration at all (if we count out work and study visas and some marriages). Then we have all the traditions and the changing of times as the younger population gets smaller while the elderly population keeps on growing.
Japan is having a rough time in many aspects, so it's interesting to see if they'll be able to tackle it in a way that makes the Japanese society push forward, not backwards as it seems sometimes at the moment.
Should be noted; I'm no expert on Japan. I haven't lived there. I can't hold a conversation in Japanese. But I still find the country extremely fascinating.
I like the idea of influencing one of the most important parts of society today in Sweden, which is local transport. Considering how the world looks at the moment, I think it's a good thing to spend money on reinforcing transportation between cities and within the community to the extent that you never have to buy a car.
Oh, and my colleagues are for the most part fantastic. They make a huge difference when working with customer service, since support is extremely important in an environment where people can be quite offensive.
After that it's been a ride. I've started with just going around everywhere and taking the camera with, to helping out friends with pictures for their cosplay costumes, to realising that I actually can get paid for my work. People have always been really supporting of me, and I think that support is what has made me continue. I do honestly think that I'm a really good photographer, even though I still have a lot to learn. It's all about keeping it up however and not falling into the trap of "I need to spend more money because that will make me a better photographer". People who believe that won't get anywhere.
I've always used a quote from One Hour Photo as to explain why I like photography the most, and why I think it's an important medium to carry on in our daily lives. It goes as follows:
“I’m sure my customers never think about it, but these snapshots are their little stands against the flow of Time. The shutter’s clicked, the flash goes off, and they’ve stopped Time, just for the blink of an eye. And if these pictures have anything important to say to future generations, it’s this:
‘I was here. I existed. I was young. I was happy, and someone cared enough about me in this world to take my picture.’ ”
