And now to answer Kate’s questions!
If you could set one season for the whole year like in TS3, which one would it be?
Spring is my favourite season. The weather is just starting to feel summery, but without the oppressive, mind-bending heat that characterises Australian summers. Also there’s just something in the air that reminds me of summer holidays, so it makes me feel cheerful and carefree. And another thing, most plants are in bloom, so there are flowers everywhere and everything is pretty and sweet-smelling 🙂
Where would you love to spend your summer vacation this year?
My current plan is to spend it at home, working on this blog and various personal projects and hanging out with friends/boyfriend. I have a crazy long break from uni (5-ish months) so I’ll have a lot of time on my hands. I guess if I could spend it anywhere, I might like to go down to Melbourne to visit some friends. I have a lot of online friends in that area (that I’ve met up with previously) who I would love to visit more often if I had the money to do so.
What weather is it in the part of the world you live in?
It is currently Spring. Yay! 😀 Most days are still pretty cold, but we’ve had a couple of really gorgeous, 25-ish degrees days so far this month. (That’s mid- to late-70s Farenheit for all my US readers 🙂 )
Empty your handbag/backpack. What are the items you see?
Emptied my handbag. Inside we have:
– Two snack bars
– Old concert tickets
– Lip cream
– My loyalty card wallet
– My actual wallet
– A champagne cork (?)
– USB case
– “Girl products”
– A few pieces of rubbish
– My insulin medication (I’m not diabetic, I actually have the opposite problem – too much insulin)
Do you have some kind of fashion obsession (shoes, handbags, belts, hats, vintage items, jeans, designer clothes, dresses etc.) or none at all?
In spite of Spring/Summer being my favourite time of year, I am a big fan of scarves and beanies. Problem is, it’s rarely cold enough to wear them in Sydney And it’s getting rarer every year, what with global warming and all. However, my one clothing item that I really love is probably dresses – specifically what I suppose you might call vintage style (A-line, mid-length skirts). I wish I owned more of them.
How much money are you willing to spend on a fashion item you REALLY like?
Depends on the quality. For a really nice dress or something, maybe a couple of hundred dollars? I’d be willing to pay more or less depending on what store it was from. Not because I care about the brand, but because some stores have a reputation for quality that others don’t, and their clothes tend to be proportionally more expensive.
What movie can you watch over and over without ever getting tired of?
I don’t really have a single movie that I’ve watched hundreds of times, so I don’t know if there’s one I can watch that much without getting tired of. The movie that springs to mind, however, is The Prince of Egypt. I’ve seen it many times, both throughout my childhood and more recently as an adult, and I still love it. The soundtrack by Hans Zimmer is incredible, and it’s just really well-crafted in terms of story and characters. Plus, the childhood nostalgia factor probably helps.
If magic was real, what spell would you want to learn first?
Are we talking Harry Potter magic? Since you mention specific spells, I’m going to assume so. In that case, I would probably want to learn something like Reparo, because it would just be so damn useful in everyday life even if I didn’t do magic stuff ordinarily.
Do you print your photos or do you just keep them in the folders of your PC?
I don’t take many photos in general, and those I do rarely make it to my PC and just sit on my phone. I would probably only print photos if it were for a project of some sort, or if I wanted to frame them or give them to someone as a gift.
Have you researched your family tree? If yes, how deep in the past did you get?
I personally haven’t, but I believe my grandfather has. Only with his (and his wife’s) side of the family, obviously. I think he traced it back a good four or five generations at least, before my ancestors came to Australia from… I think the UK. I would be interested to research that sort of thing myself, but not enough to pay someone for it, and I wouldn’t know where to start or how far I could get for free.
Do you read the Loewe Legacy? The story is currently on hiatus, should it be continued…?
I do, although I’m woefully behind. It’s one of the stories I haven’t yet caught up on after my year out of action. Given that I’m not up to date and don’t know the circumstances surrounding the hiatus, I can’t really give my opinion on whether it should continue. I can only say that I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read so far and I think it would be a shame to end such a creative and in-depth story before its time.
So there you go! As I mentioned above, I won’t be tagging anyone or asking questions because I’m so late to the party at this point, but I answered Kate’s questions because there might be someone reading my blog that’s interested in knowing all these random facts about me. Stay tuned for another selection of random facts in my Liebster post, as well as the Memory Lane challenge coming soon!
