11 Facts
01. I'm very short. I haven't even broken five feet.
02. I've been with my fiancee for four years now. I kind of like him, I guess.
03. I hope to go to Library School one day, even though I don't really look forward to going back to school.
04. I'm still waiting for my Hogwarts letter, or for a talking animal to tell me I'm magical, or for something in the vein to happen and change my life forever.
05. This is my second livejournal, and this month marks my tenth year on LJ.
06. YA fiction drives me crazy. Every time I try to read it, I end up disappointed. I plan to take recs for the rest of the year and then dedicate next year to reading those YA novels in the hopes I find books I enjoy.
07. On that note, I like to read, but I always feel I'm never reading enough.
08. I alternate between reading fan fiction and reading manga when I have nothing better to do. Right now, it's fan fiction.
09. I am completely uninterested in writing original work most of the time.
10. I hate getting invested in bands, because they always break my heart.
11. I'm tired, so this isn't a fact so much as it is a statement.

01. What's your favourite thing to have for breakfast?
I'm not really a breakfast person. I usually have toast, or some fruit, but I don't really have a "favorite" thing.

02. What song would be the theme song to your life?
Oh, I don't know, not probably one that already exists. In Neil Gaiman's "Anansi Boys", there's a passage about how everyone has their own internal theme song, which might not be very good, but it's theirs. I imagine mine is kind of a hazy, jazzy song that sometimes gets really frantic when the musician feels like it. There aren't any official lyrics, but every once in a while, someone tries rapping over it, just to see what it sounds like.

03. What's a skill you'd really like to learn?
I wouldn't mind learning to draw again, but I'm not sure I'm ready for that kind of hurt.

04. If you could live anywhere, where would you live?
I'm actually pretty happy with where I live now. The area, anyway. I wouldn't mind a nicer apartment with less mosquitoes hanging around, but I like the Bay.

05. If someone gave you £100/$150 right now what would you do with it?
(Thank goodness Kate translated the money, because I probably wouldn't have thought to!) This is probably the boringest of answers, but I'd put it in savings.

06. What is your favourite youtube clip?

You're welcome.

07. Have you had any interesting dreams recently?
I don't particularly like to talk about my dreams, but I did post about one on my public blog recently. You can read about it here.

08. What's your favourite colour combination?
Brown, pink and white. I know, I like how I have an immediate answer for this, too.

09. What's your favourite episode of your favourite TV show?
That kind of precludes having a favorite TV show, so hmm. I guess I'll just pick a show I really like instead. So, Parks and Rec. My favorite episode is the one where they all get the flu, because nothing is funnier than Chris commanding himself to "Stop. Pooping."

10. What are you looking forward to?
Getting that bracelet I won! I'm excited to see it. :)

11. If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
Super strength, because I always love the tiny, but powerful characters. Molly from Runaways, Hotaru from Sailor Moon, etc. They're totally my type of hero.

08. I alternate between reading fan fiction and reading manga when I have nothing better to do. Right now, it's fan fiction.

Same here! I have at least 50 bookmarked fanfics and about 20 manga bookmarked right now and I'm trying to cram in as many as I can before I leave this morning. I...don't think I'll get to them all XD

I wouldn't mind learning to draw again, but I'm not sure I'm ready for that kind of hurt.

Same again. I've really fallen off and I'm struggling in getting back into the habit of it.

Haha, aw, good luck! I hope you did! Yeah, I feel like it's a binge or something, when I do one or the other. It's weird!

I haven't drawn regularly since high school (about 5 years, now), and yeah. It's so hard to get back on that wagon.

Heh, thank you. But, alas, I wasn't able to read much before I left, but that's okay because now I have even more stuff to read now that I'm back :D I always binge when it comes to this, it's like my mind is saying must read all the things! and it never get its fill until I'm basically exhausted.

Yeah. I usually at least try to write down what I want to draw later on.

omg that dog is adorable! I was hoping people would answer this question with pet videos, haha.

I can't get into YA fiction either. It just frustrates me, because there's so much sexual tension and such little sex XD

Haha, ikr? That dog cracks me the fuck up.

Right? I feel the same way! Not that I find very good sex scenes in books for adults, but still. XD

For good YA lit, you can try Kevin Brooks' novels or Carol Plum-Ucci's What Happened to Lani Garver ( The latter is one of the heavier, deeper YA books I read when I was a teenager, and it's one of my all-time favorites.

I've heard good things about Parks and Recreation from multiple people these past few months, so I'll have to look into it!

Yay, recs! I put them on my to read list. Thanks!

Parks and Rec is soooo good. I would actually suggest skipping the first season. It wasn't that great and was only, like, 13 episodes, but the rest it amazing. Go for it!

You're welcome! I hope you find them interesting. :)

I see amusing .gifs from the show on my Tumblr dashboard once in a while, so hopefully I will enjoy it. And thanks for the tip about season one!

Well, I certainly trust friends' recs more than any reviews, or blogs, or anything, so I bet I'll like them. ;)

It's amazing, I promise! And np. Enjoy!
