What do you think is your most annoying quirk?

AdrianaRafaela98’s Profile PhotoAdriianna Rafaella
Impatience/frustration. Each day I tell myself to be patient. I go to my office and start writing and shortly am interrupted with requests that do not interest me and break my creative rhythm. So I must work hard to contain myself. Sometime I wonder how the great writers and composers were able to create and compose poems, novels or music while constantly being interrupted with: "honey, please empty the trash, or honey the phone is ringing please answer it or when are you going to mow the lawn or my computer won't print, etc.

That's nice. I got day off in my weekend after 14 days of doing work at office continuously. It has been raining since early in the morning today so that I couldn't go to outside today. I stayed whole day at home and read novels online.

Who do you respect the most?

Nobody famous cause I don't know them. I suppose I respect different people for different reasons, and try to be like them in the areas I respect. I may respect one person's adherence to complete honesty, and not respect their financial practices, while another person I may respect financially. I may respect someone's technical prowess at work, but not their attitude about women. All in all there are good things and bad things about everyone, so I take the things I do respect, and leave the rest.
Arnold Schwarzenegger. Also Chef Gordon Ramsay oddly enough. Versitile, masters of their craft, wildly successful in their own respect, all around amazing guys. I'm sure there's more but I'm drunk and that's all I can think of right now.
A person who knows themselves well. Someone who is consistent and clear about their intentions and thoughts. Someone who knows their limits and tries pushing them for growth. Someone who is open minded.
Stephen King. If you read On Writing the first half of the book is his autobiography as a writer. He goes over how he had two kids and how both he and his wife were working two jobs. Even with that he found time to work on his novels (namely Carrie). Also, when he discusses his alcoholism and drug addiction he never sugar coats it, and he writes about how when faced with the choice of drugs or his family he wasn't sure of what to choose. He's a writer who's accomplished more than 99% of writers could ever hope for, and through all of it he's never gotten egotistical or acted like he was above his fans or anything like that. He's just an normal guy with a great talent for writing, and he that's how he's always portrayed himself, and that's something I can really respect.
Eddie Izzard. He is an incredibly accomplished and hilarious stand-up comedian and a pretty good actor. I respect his bravery to perform and go out in "women's clothes" and his openness about being an Action Transvestite. I'm also super in awe of his inhuman ability to run obscene amounts of marathons (like earlier this year where he ran 27 marathons in 27 days for Sport Relief).
My coworkers. I'm working a really shitty job where most people don't last more than 6 months because they just come here for the money and want to get out as fast as possible. But some got stuck there, mostly because they have kids and have been working there too long to consider anything else (the job really doesn't bring anything to your resume, so it's just wasted years in terms of experience)

Are you an avid reader?

While I wasn't into reading books in high school, I've matured a lot since then and read voraciously now, probably an equal mix of fiction and nonfiction. I am not a reader anymore.
I only had a small window when I was.
I have a juicy case of ADHD and concentrating without meds is near impossible.
But there was a time right after I got on my ADHD meds where I found out I could read.
I read everything I could get my hands on.
I read the dictionary, a Psychology book, the Bible and everything in between.
I was a reading fool for about two years.
Then it faded and I am back to looking at the pictures again. Not anymore but many years ago I used to haunt used book stores. I get through around 50 ebooks a month. Thank goodness for sites like smashwords as I couldn't afford to but them all.
I could read all day. I'd say an avid reader is someone whose main hobby is reading, and they do so frequently. I was avid reader from kindergarten, all the way up until college. A good deal of my free time (which was a lot, since I was a shy introvert) was devoted to reading. A few of my classmates assumed all I did was read, but considering my options of pulling my head out of an enthralling book consisted of being largely mocked or ignored by them, the book was preferable.
I don't think speed reading or the number of books you read has anything to do with it. I'd also argue that what you read doesn't really matter. I'd consider "well-read" to imply someone that has read a lot of the classics and what not, but someone could still be an avid reader by reading only fantasy novels or mysteries or so on. It just comes down to truly enjoying reading; if you find yourself looking forward to the chance to read and consider it a fun hobby, you're an avid reader in my book. I saw something a while ago in the Huffington Post that took a poll and found iirc over 25% of people hadn't read a book in a year... That's sad to me.
Never liked reading all that much until college when I found some fiction that really grabbed me. After that I discovered that my tastes and my Mom's overlap and I can always pick up a book or two when I visit. Maybe half of my reading is books she's finished. I'm an avid reader. When I was in kindergarden and first I was often ahead of the class in whatever we were learning, and aparenrly it made the other kids feel bad. They offered to let me skip two grades but my mom said no. So my teachers just stuck me in the back of the room with books and art supplies. This period in my life gave birth to my love of reading and drawing.

What are your insane goals? 👀

Finish my first novel fully. Get it noticed globally. Get the attention of directors and Hollywood. Get them to come with me with a deal and make it into a three part movie, that I’d be in too. Get another one of my novels that I’m going to write, made into an animation. Get rich, help Native American people get clean drinking water. Buy land and give it back. Give money to various charities. Help clean up the world by investing into cleaner ways of living. Clean up oceans is top priority too. I will do a lot of things. I just gotta push :)

If you had to write a book, what would it be about?

As I've had a tough and eventful life, It would be something I'd love to share at some point. So I would either write an autobiography, or a novel based on a true story; using characters to portray myself and those in my life, as well as events depicting those I've gone through or witnessed. I've tried writing fictitious novels in the past so i wouldn't mind consider doing it again.

If you had to write a book what would it be about

Imagine, a stranger is tasked with summarising the kind of person you're. But the info they've on you is a video footage going about your most recent week. Based on the tapes alone, what opinion would they form about you?

Has the language changed a lot in terms of grammar and spelling? If you teleported back in, lets say 1750, in New York, do you think you would be able to communicate effectively with those 18th century people? Or, to keep it realistic, if you read a letter from then, would you understand it?lol

It’s probably changed a fair amount - I can’t speak for how different language may have been in America, but I think I’ve read enough novels from the 1700s-1800s from English writers to understand what they were saying!
In some ways, it really hasn’t changed that much, it just depends on that particular author’s style of writing :)

I always got bored reading novels, which made me feel like I was missing out on the complexity of speech and the philosophical richness of meaning which is lost in academic text. 🤔

How do you spend your free time when alone?

Well as a single introvert almost all of my free time is spent alone and I do almost everything alone. I even do dinner and a movie by myself if there's something I want to go see. Pretty much a normal outing for most people I still do, I just do it by myself.
Probably half. I'll become a hermit when I'm completely drained of energy, but when I'm recharged I'll visit friends or sit in public places and read should I still have free time. I used to have a big issue with social anxiety. I'd go a week without leaving the house other than to go to class or work, and I'm secretly terrified that I'll revert back to being that person should I let myself get too comfortable with being alone all the time.
Sometimes I feel lonely and bad about spending time alone, especially if I see people with a bunch of friends. But then I remember that my friends don't really care for a lot of things I love to do. So it's just easier to do things alone than to try and convince them to do this thing that I like. Most of it. Back in the colder months, I often took myself out to lunch and dinner at nice restaurants and was seeing new movies biweekly. I'm not opposed to going out with other people, but that requires me to work with other people's schedules and likings and sometimes I like to just be by myself.
Most of it. I have a bunch of flatmates but I'm around people all day and I'm a huge introvert so my free time is all-by-myself recharging time and I tend to get irritated when someone interrupts that even to ask for a pen. (I don't get outwardly mad at them obviously, I just don't like it.)
I'm working all the time and I'm usually tired so my main hobby is probably video games (should probably knock that off at my age but idgaf) and I recently took up golf, it's really fun! I try to go at least once a week if not more.
I read, watch TV, spend too much time on reddit, spend time with my boyfriend, am learning how to knit, play with my pets, take my dog to the dog park and training classes (once he's a little more adjusted I want to start taking him to the doggy social dates my school runs), cook/bake, go to the movies, go out for dinner/drinks/coffee with my friends, have ladies nights (dinner/drinks/movies/games at someone's house, usually) research career-related things while I determine what my next step should be, travel.
I love to read. I don't really have a preferred genre. It just depends on my mood at the time. I enjoy Sci Fi fantasy novels and autobiographical books quite the bit. I am currently reading the Song of Fire and Ice series. I really enjoyed Slash's autobiography. Anything by Sara Douglass or Neil Gaiman is wonderful. I bake, drink, play vidya games, go running, crochet, study, write. Sometimes my friends come over and we do the activities together and talk about what we've been doing in classes (we like to intellectually stimulate each other and are mostly in very different fields).

Try to do something productive, do something that you love no matter how weird it is just don't let people manipulate you, you don't need anyone
You came in this World alone and you'll die alone,
The moment you were born, you were on your own every single person in your life is temporary

When did you realize you were smarter than The Average Joe?

Personally, I think that every person can become smarter if they make the choice to learn. While some people may be born smarter, or learn more easily than others, the choices you make in your schooling years effect how smart you become. I realized I was smarter than the average Joe during my first year of public school (8th grade) although I had always been told by adults that I was very intelligent and mature for my age. That being said, I am rank #2 heading into my sophomore year of high school with hopes of scholarships to Ivy League schools.
I realised pretty early on in primary school that I was a hell of a lot sharper than most of the other kids, and immediately became the male equivalent of Hermione Granger. Took me a lot longer than it should have done to realise that acting like you're smarter than other people doesn't make you very popular at all. So maybe I'm not that smart.
At the end of Kindergarten, I could do 3 digit addition, without carrying over (134 + 123 not 139 + 154) in my head. Then, in Grade 1, when all the kids are reading picture books, I was reading novels, such as The Magic Treehouse Series. The thing that really cemented it for my was The Enrichment Test, on which I scored a high score, high enough to certify me "Mentally Gifted", and enrolled into the Core Enrichment program, for the smartest kids to meet 6 times a year. Fun stuffs!
When I was younger (5-6) I was hanging out with the neighborhood kids when they decided to jump off of the roof wearing capes and see if they could fly. Being the smart kid that I was I went along, but declined jumping. Super heroes aren't real! Parachutes on the other hand... So, armed with my bedsheet-tied-to-backpack parachute I attempted the same jump. So, maybe not smart... but smartER than average.
That realization predates memory, for me. I've simply always picked up on concepts and understood them more completely than my peers; even prior to formal schooling. Every teacher wanted to "bump" me a grade or two, but my parents refused since they reasoned that my emotional age was better suited to my current grade, than an older one. I completely agree. As time went on, I hit all the standard milestones like highest score on this or that test and first in the county on whatever and then valedictorian and full ride scholarships and blah blah blah. Thing is, I'd quibble on the term "smarter", in this context. I was naturally more intelligent than my peers, but "smartness" came later. I tend to think of being smart as the synthesis of intelligence and experience. That is, I became smarter by simply exploiting my natural curiosity and intelligence to learn more and more.
I don't think I'm smart, but I think I might have some memory thing with numbers and patterns. Maybe like a savant but probably not that smart. I have all the numbers in my phone memorized, and can recall patterns, dates, names, and numbers quite well.

Please forgive me for taking so long to ask a follow up question! You mention in your bio that you like books. Could I ask what you reading at the moment?

No problem.
Right now I am reading an Arabic novel called Al-Bashmoury by Salwa Bakr. There’s an English version under the title: The Man From Bashmour. It’s a historical novel that focuses on the period of the Islamic rule in Egypt and how it reflects on the Coptic Church — Bashmoury in The Coptic Language means the Egyptian peasant.
The novel has been classified as one of the best 100 Arabic novels.
