if you read all 137 of those questions, then you're awesome. questions/idea snatched from tumblr and idea from this lovely lady.

ask me anything and everything {well...almost :D}! comment with an above number, and I'll answer you in the comment section below or ask me your own question that you've been dying to ask for ten bajillion years {but not really}.  i want you to know me how i am, not what i may portray myself to be on blogger. so ask away, and i'll most likely ask you a question in return. ;) 


  1. Replies
    1. 1. *thinks* "X-i-o - no wait. X-i-o-a - no, no, that's not right. X-i-a-o... - seriously?!!! I CAN'T EVEN SPELL MY OWN NAME?!" hehe. It's Xiaosheng. Originally, my mom wanted to name me "Grace Noel," but when my parents adopted me from China, they stuck with my "original" Chinese name. It's pronounced. "Sh-owe-sh-ung" and means "little voice," or "little shout." :)

      26. Dos. one brown fuzzy body pillow + a "normal one." I used to sleep with like ten. ;)

      54. okay, I'll be honest. I don't get personality type tests. but I just recently took not one but TWO and they both resulted in the same answer. so...I guess "officially" I am a ESFJ?! what does that even mean?! :D

      62. extrovert all the way. but I do have my "LEAVE ME ALONE!!!" "I LITERALLY DO NOT WANT TO TALK TO ANYONE!" type moments. but those are incredibly few compared to the "LOVE ME! I NEED TO TALK TO YOU RIGHT THIS SECOND FOR TWELVE HOURS! I'M SORRY I'M BEING ANNOYING AND TERRIBLY EXTROVERTED" moments. :P

      same questions for you, m'dear + 127, 83, and 39.

    2. 1. Your middle name is so cool! Mine is Elizabeth :)

      26. I sleep with 2 pillows under my head, a pillow under my arm, and a pillow at my feet! ;)

      54. Hahaha I am an ENFP :D

      62. Same!! I have some leave me alone moments, but in general, I'm pretty extroverted!! :D

      39. I'm gonna be all lame and say British. I just really really like British accents. ;)

      83. Hmmmm well I used to hate my name, but now I really like it. The only problem is when you own a photography business and there are 30 other people named Hannah Elizabeth Photography, but you really want your business name to be your name, there's a problem. ;)

      127. I want to learn how to paint and how to play a musical instrument. Like the violin. I love that you play! I vote that you post a video of yourself playing soon! Pleeeaaaseee. :)

    3. Thanks. :) I didn't really care for my middle name until more recently.

      Oh, but do you like the London accents or the Cockney accents or the Somerset or Dorset accents or the Yorkshire accents...which one do you like?!!! There are so many British accents and then we get into the different accents within the UK like the Dublin accent and - AHHH!!! :D I know all this from one simple video which I find fascinating. :)

      Haha, that COULD be a problem. ;) But it's a pretty name all the same.

      That's so cool you want to learn violin! Aw, you're sweet. Oh, and I posted my playing a few weeks ago here: It's not a video, but it's audio. ;) And it's raw. Really raw, because it's squeaky and imperfect in some bits. ;)

  2. 10. 12. 20. 29. 62. 70. 131. (because I can't choose just one ;))

    1. 10. I dreamed that his chocolate bunny was after my cat and then I ate it. *crickets in the background* gosh...I really don't retain whatever I dream about. because it's either super weird or super scary {why on earth did people say, "chase your dreams" if most of them are nightmares}. :P the last one I can think of "loving" was the time my crush sent an email telling me he loved me. it was shocking, terrifying and the most amazing feeling ever. hehe. XD

      12. um....gosh. i have way too many. you can find most of the albums I listen to here:

      20. according to my mom, I saw Russell Crowe on a backstage set, while touring in Hollywood. I don't even remember, so I kind of doubt that counts.

      29. toast and tea {or coffee} and whatever we have on hand. it really depends though. in autumn, I love granola. in summer, i rarely eat breakfast. in winter/spring, i like toast {chunky apple cinnamon bread from Target with either butter or a generous smathering of nutella - like I'm having right now :D}. for fancy breakfasts, i make french toast, potatos, and sunny side up eggs.

      62. {see above answer ^^ }

      70. I LOVE red {deep 40's cranberry reds}, but I don't wear it often. only for swing. I love teal blues/greens and lavender pastels - both with the ring fingers painted gold. <3

      131. 18, 19, 20. I can't really put my finger on a specific age. a lot of people assume that I'm in my second year of college, though. hehe.

      same questions for you + 116, 83 {<<<I personally LOVE it ;) }, 77, and 48.

    2. 10. hahaha, I have the craziest dreams too, but usually I forget them within ten minutes of waking up. I do remember having a dream semi-recently where I went to an old friend's wedding. We aren't really currently on friendship terms, (kinda one of those things :P) and in my dream I hadn't seen her in years. The best part of the dream was that I had a boyfriend (!!! bahaha) and he was super sweet and was so patient with me while I over-analyzed and freaked out about everything being awkward. (Seriously, I dreamed I was talking nonstop and completely freaking out in the car on the way and he was just calming telling me "it's going to be alright, darling.") Oh and I held his hand so tightly, I almost cut off all bloodflow. Classy, right? ;) (The actually scary thing is, I would totally do that. :P)

      12. I'd could never (ever) choose a favorite, but I have a few very, very, very favorites. "i love you this big" - scotty mccreery. "sparks fly" - taylor swift. "dessert song" - hillsong united. but, my current favorite song is "love too much" - hunter hayes. (actually his entire new album is perfect.)

      20. nope. not at all. :(

      29. breakfast food is my favorite meal ever. seriously name anything breakfast food related and i'll love it.

      62. I'm a total introvert. lately, it's probably been my biggest struggle. ughhhh.

      70. I love wearing deep reds too! But usually I only wear it during the winter... my favorite shade would be this lime/almost neon green. Or coral. #happycolors

      48. probably "DUDE!". perfectly feminine, yes? ;). Or ohmygosh. or rad.

      77. they change depending on what i wear, but usually they are some shade of green / hazel.

      83. Aww, thanks. I do like it, I've never actually met someone who has the same name as I do (my parents did before I was born which was why I was named it!) so it's pretty cool to have an unique name without it being to difficult to spell. Haha.

      116. I do and I don't. This time last year (hey, actually literally. in two days it will be the exact same day!) I was telling my friends at my co-op "goodbye" and crying (okay, it was basically ugly sobbing) in front of a bunch of teachers and my friends. Not one of my finest moments, but it was good. To quote Winnie the Pooh (which is always a good idea! ;)) "How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard." Saying goodbye to the people who absolutely rocked my world was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do, but there was a reason it was so hard. We had so many golden moments- moments I'll never ever forget, and even though it's over. We stood on holy ground. *intro "holy ground" by taylor swift. #noshame. ;)

      oh goodness, this was incredibly long so I'll shut up now. ;) I loved this idea, hmm. I might have to steal it for myself! :D (also, I'm totally with you on not understanding the entire personality type thing... I've taken so many quizzes, but I honestly just don't get it!! :P)

  3. May I ask them all?? I'd love to know answers to 1, 7, 11, 14, 40, 43, 113, and 137, which is where do you find your cute clothes!!
    I hope that was not too many to ask at once!
    Ask me any of the questions if you like.

    1. PLEASE DO! :D

      i. {see above answer ^^}

      vii. last time I went to the doctor, I think I measured 5'3 & 1/2. an inch of that I owe to my thick hair, so my friend says. :D

      xi. erm. i am awkward, good at dropping things, and i'm good at testing gravity {ie tripping}. :D apparently, people say i'm decent at crafting, putting my hair up in coils, braids, etc., and good at the violin? dunno. come visit me, we'll craft and drink tea and scrapbook and play music and you can be the judge. ;)

      xiv. he has to have my sense of humor and love almost everything that i do {historical dancing, literature, tv shows, photography, etc. etc.}. i'm a hopeless romantic, so ideally, i would like for him to be sweetly romantic {always very clever in thinking up ways to be romantic}, but awkward because i know it's raw. he will have a mind for politics, because i don't and for some reason i find it really appealing. :P he doesn't have to be "tall, dark, and handsome," but I'll fall in love with his personality and his love for Christ above all.

      xl. {see above answers ^^}

      xliii. right handed all the way. :)

      cxiii. as I said before, I am an extrovert. I love people, and being with people - in big groups and one-on-one. and if we are close friends, I will go to the end of the world with you and do anything for you to make you smile. I love deeply, passionately, and don't forget easily. I'm energetic {like right now, my body is suffering from jet lag, but I'm bouncing off the walls - how is this possible?!}, love to make people laugh, and am an initiator in the big projects, but terribly indecisive when it comes to little things. I don't think as deeply as I should, but I am perceptive. so basically I'm a paradox. :D

      cxxxvii. CONSIGNMENT SHOPS!!! i love skirts and dresses {not a conviction, but a preference}, and most of my clothes I accumulate over months of scouring vintage, local consignment shops. some of my favorite brands are banana republic, anne taylor, the loft, and lauren conrad. :)

      please! this is so much fun! ask as many as you want. ;)

      same questions for you + 101, 136, 34, and 12. :)

  4. Okay, here goes! Questions 13, 36, 101, 102, and 108. What a fun idea! :D

    1. xiii. I CANNOT CHOOSE!!! I LOVE TOO MANY! Catching Fire, Avengers, Tuck Everlasting - the list is pretty much endless, and I haven't even seen half of the movies on my "to watch" list. :P

      xxxvi. yes, I am. that sounds prideful, but I am pretty keen when it comes to people. ;)

      ci. I miss so many people right now, but I'm always missing so many people. I miss my friend Johanna dearly along with her big family of eight; I miss someone I met at a dance; I miss my aunt in Indianapolis; I miss my new friends at PCC; I miss my friend Amy in CO, my friend Gabby in LA; and I miss bloggers I haven't even met! I miss a LOT of people. :)

      cii. seeing my best friend in July or August! swing dancing {hopefully very soon} and for summer to be in full swing. also college. ;)

      cviii. no, I’m not. you can usually see it on my face, if I’m mad or angry or hurt. that’s the problem of being an extrovert. :P but sometimes, if it really counts, then yes, i can hide my feelings. but it takes everything in my power along with the grace of God to do so.

      same questions for you, m'dear along with - when did you graduate? 86, 98, and 55. :)

    2. xiii. I can't choose either! I love movies that are well done and imaginative...Like the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Hobbit movies, Mary Poppins, The Book Thief...I also like movies about Christians from the past, like Luther and Chariots of Fire....Oh! And period films like Pride and Prejudice and Miss Potter...

      xxxvi. I am, too, Grace. And you know, it really makes it hard to be around people sometimes, because I feel that I can read them like a book. I don't mean to sound prideful, either; but I do feel that this is true!

      ci. I miss lots of people, too. I miss my brother. I miss my friends from college. I miss seeing my ABeka teachers everyday. And to tell you the truth, I used to miss this guy that I had like for ever and ever, but I've decided that it's time I get over him and move on. :( Ahhh, life.

      cii. Heaven! ;D My next semester of college, summer vacation, getting together with friends, the next Hobbit movie...

      cviii. No. I used to cry really easily, although I've gotten better about that. If I'm upset, I get really quiet. If I'm happy, I bounce off the walls. :D

      *I graduated last year! (May 2013)

      lxxxvi. I am very good at listening to people, making people feel loved...I also love to encourage people, and I love being with people...

      xcviii. Lemon cake with ice cream! Yum!

      lv. Haha, weeeell...I can carry a tune, and I love to sing...But I have a hard time harmonizing!!

      NOW...Can I ask you more questions? Because I'm loving this! :D

    3. Haha, I miss a guy too, but I kind of doubt he ever "spares a thought of me." ;) but yeah, I'm too much like Eponine.

      YES! if my good friend hurt me, everyone could tell I was mad or hurt. I've gotten slightly bit better, but I'm still very extroverted when it comes to my feelings. unless of course, as I said before, it really matters. and if I'm happy or excited, I too bounce off the walls. :D

      PLEASE DO! this is really fun. ;)

    4. Yep, sounds like my past predicament! I'm too much like Eponine, too, haha! ;D

      More questions! {97, 99, 115, 25, and 53}

    5. xcvii. "I am an always will be the optimist, the hoper of far-flung hopes, and the dreamer of improbable dreams." "we are all stories in the end, just make it a good one." sherlock's entire best man speech {which basically spreads out to be the entire episode}, and "you don't have to live forever, you just have to live," from tuck everlasting. because I can't choose just one and these are the ones at the top of my head. :P

      xcix. my daddy. I have so much respect for him and his self-sacrificing spirit. :) my good friends amy and gabby both brought me back to the "land of the living" when I was going through major depression at different intervals of my life as well.

      cxv. oooh! I really wanted to answer this. here are my thoughts: the Bible says "let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus." insecurities are lies that are from Satan to destroy you from the inside. and the thing is, not one person is without insecurities. some people think they're silly and destroy people's lives by not being sensitive enough to acknowledge the insecurities that haunt others around them; while others focus too much on them and use them as a crutch. the only thing I know is the worst possible thing we can do is feed off of other people's insecurities, and instead by acknowledging {as sherlock says} their "pressure points," praying for them, and encouraging them in the little victories. all i know is they can be conquered through the grace of God. does that make sense? :P

      xxv. I like indie/folk {like lumineers, bastille, oneRepublic} || les miserables || phantom of the opera || 40's swing - it just depends on my mood. ;)

      liii. ALL. THE. TIME. you can usually find me singing "one day more," "on my own," or "someone else's story." but mostly les mis. it's terrible. and then there are the moments that I dream up a scene in my head and start "acting it out" by talking to myself. and then there are moments when I simply talk to myself. :P

      same for you + 69. 4. 110. :)

    6. xcvii. THE HOBBIT--Bilbo: "You can promise that I will come back?" Gandalf: "No. And if you do, you will not be the same." SAVING MR. BANKS--"George Banks and all he stands for will be saved. Maybe not in life, but in imagination. Because that's what we storytellers do. We restore order with imagination. We instill hope again and again and again." MARY POPPINS--"Mary Poppins, practically perfect in every way." CHARIOTS OF FIRE--"I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure."

      xcix. My parents, definitely! And people in the Bible, like David, Esther, Job, the Apostle John...And the Lord most of all...

      cxv. GRACE. I really, really love your answer for this one, and I really don't think that I could answer it any better. In fact, I'm saving what you wrote there, because I had never heard insecurities explained like that. Thank you! :D

      xxv. Classical, Christian (JJ Heller, Ellie Holcomb, some Beckah Shae, Bart Millard), Piano Music (like the Piano Guys), Musical tunes (Calamity Jane, Les Mis, Phantom of the Opera)...

      liii. ME TOO {singing anyway!}. In fact, my brother gets so annoyed with me sometimes for singing so much. AND, most of the songs I sing out loud are Les Mis songs!!! Or Phantom of the Opera songs!!!!! I don't talk to myself very often, though! ;)

      lxix. Yes. I babysit often...Sometimes the kids don't acknowledge that I have authority, though! ;D That's pretty much it...

      iv. My favorite color? Ooooh, that's a hard one. I would probably have to go with yellow, although blue comes in at a close second.

      cx. Hmmmm...a good night's rest! Haha...It's been a long day {in a good sense}.

      Well thanks a million for all the fun! Now that I know that you have a blog, I'll make sure to check back in over here more often! :)

  5. Ohhh what a great idea. And since you were using roman numerals, I thought I'd give it a shot. (Yes, I had to look up the higher ones online because nobody remembers things like that except for you, Grace.;)) LIX, LXXXVI, CXXII and 128 & 72 just because tehe.

    1. haha! I don't know why I like roman numerals...even though it took me like five minutes to figure out which questions you wanted me to ask you. :P

      lix. long/medium length hair. I mean, really, we're girls. guys can't/shouldn't grow long hair. it just looks nice {in most cases}. personally, I would like my hair just a little longer, even though I like this length {I took ten inches off of it a few months ago}, just so I can put it up more often.

      lxxvi. even though I like to plan, initiate, do things in a certain way - I am flexible. I don't get too upset if plans change. I also am very good at staying calm, even if I'm freaking out on the inside. ;)

      cxxii. my past violin teacher, shawna, was an incredible role model as a little girl. her courtship with her husband really inspired me. Johanna is a role model as well, in that her love for Christ really inspired me to seek a more personal relationship with our Savior. :)

      cxxviii. ach. seriously, I don't know. I block memories like that out of my mind. :P

      lxxii. hehe. I seriously love answering these questions, for some really unknown reason. dear me, I hope he never reads my blog. :P my first "admiration" of a guy was a long time ago when I really didn't have any comprehension of what a crush was. his name was Bryce. he was the first in the {small} line of guys I liked whose first names start with "Br" over the years. I never really saw him, except for at homeschool gatherings. and even then, I never talked to him. but I really liked his stance on purity, his intelligence, his politeness - he was just a really neat guy. He moved to CO a few years ago. and yeah, that kind of went flying out the window.
      my first "real real" crush, was {might possibly still be} on my best friend's older brother. I have recently resigned myself to the fact that nothing will ever happen between us, but it's still a huge inside joke between my family and his. :P

      my first celebrity crush was/is "Jim Caveziel" from Count of Monte Cristo/Passion of Christ/Person of Interest. he's so amazing.

      same questions for you + 31. 126. 35. et 53. :)

    2. Poor girl . . . you've got a lot of comments and questions to answer on the post in roman numerals. tehe. ;)

      lix. I like longer hair, too, but some cute ladies pull off the pixie cut really well. I recently cut a foot of my hair off and it was a big deal. It's still to my shoulders though, so short for me, but medium for normal people. ;)

      lxxvi. I'm usually pretty easy-going, I do like to plan things out, but I don't have moments where I'm super excited or extremely mad. I don't annoy people in that way much.

      cxxii. there are so, so many women in my church that I can look up to as role models and I'm super blessed in that way. Plus my momma is prob my biggest role model.

      cxxviii. one time I ripped my pants jumping over an electric fence. with the guy that I used to like. and one time I almost accidentally kissed a guy I didn't like. we had to sit next to each other in the car and we both turned around at the same time. awkward . . .

      lxxii. (in response to your answer: we're girls, we like answering these kinds of questions tehe and I hope he doesn't read it either!) Well I've had guys that I thought were cool but nobody who I really continually thought about except for one or two. I've like guy #1 for a lonnngg time and guy #2 (the one I ripped my pants with . . . .) came along later. I never liked him as much but he liked me so that made me think I had to like him back. I was 15 so go figure. There's also been really neat guys that I just sort of admire from a distance, if you know what I mean. but guy #1 is pretty neat, too. :P


      31. I used to have a slingshot and would go around shooting things. Never animals because I didn't want to hurt them. My brother had a bow + arrow when he was 11 or 12 (I have no idea what my parents were thinking) and he used to let me use it. Then one time he shot a hole in the house and that was the end of archery.

      126. Mainly girls. Guys are fun to hangout with, but honestly I don't have a ton of friends, mostly just super close friends and then acquaintances. I have one close guy friend (it's the one I ripped my pants with . . . yeah) but he's like my little bro.

      35. I used to be really good at lying. Now I just feel bad. But if we're playing a game or something, then yes, I'm a perfect liar.

      53. I sing to myself and talk to myself in my head all. the. time. Singing is fun and I like to talk like I have people watching what I'm talking about. Like, I'll be in the kitchen cooking something and for some reason I'll act like I'm on a cooking tv show. It's so much fun.

    1. xlix. "sorry" I say it a lot. partially because I like my canadian accent, and partially because that's my first reaction to almost everything. :P

  7. What an awesome idea for a post! Ok, here we go...3, 58, 92, and 137: Have you chosen a college?

    Thanks girl! :)

    1. iii. October 25th, 1996. Interestingly, enough, we don't really know when I was born, since I'm adopted. Technically, I probably was born in January, but ya know. I like autumn birthdays. :)

      lviii. um....gosh, I really don't know. I can't choose!

      xcii. I'm boring. my walls are white. they have been ever since I was little. I would have liked to have painted them a light purple or blue, but we just have never gotten around to it.

      cxxxvii. PCC {Pensacola Christian College}. I just visited there this past weekend {post coming soon}, and it is absolutely brilliant! I can't wait to go. :)

      Same questions for you + 44. 127. 101. and 23.

    2. 3. 5 minutes shy of being a 4th of July baby :) Same year as you!

      23. No, closest to fame I've ever been was being on tv when my little sister was born at a fire station lol :)

      44. gah…yes. i hate creepy crawly anythings. :P

      58. Source Code.

      92. Tan…I've always hear that you should "keep the walls neutral and then add pops of color." But I don't know…one day I might just paint it aqua blue and see what happens :)

      101. Oh yes! I miss all of my Southern California friends so much! (dreaming of a summer vacation to visit them all!) :)

      127. how to keep loving those that keep hurting you- how to forgive 77x7

      Looking forward to your PCC post! {I think you'll enjoy living in the South…you'll find the nicest people down here- oh and they'll all call you "sweetie", "sugar", and "darlin":) }

  8. Love when bloggers do this! Questions 25, 30, 31, 80, 122, 131.

    1. xxv. I like indie/folk {like lumineers, bastille, oneRepublic} || les miserables || phantom of the opera || 40's swing - it just depends on my mood. ;)

      xxx. not a real one. no, not yet. hopefully, I'll go shooting {along with ARCHERY SHOOTING!!!} this summertime. ;)

      xxxi. NO! but I am planning to with some of my friends in a few weeks. I really want to, though.

      lxxx. my mom is a stay at home mom, while my dad is currently in the process of retiring. ;)

      cxxii. my past violin teacher, shawna, was an incredible role model as a little girl. her courtship with her husband really inspired me. Johanna is a role model as well, in that her love for Christ really inspired me to seek a more personal relationship with our Savior. :)

      cxxxi. 18, 19, 20. I can't really put my finger on a specific age. a lot of people assume that I'm in my second year of college, though. hehe.

      same for you + 104. 89. 113. 72.

    2. XXV. Those are some of my favorite artists as well, indie stuff is amazing!
      XXXi. Have fun! I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

      #104: I actually haven't had a major crush on someone before, and therefore haven't really had to "get over someone."
      This ties into #72 I've had plenty of celebrity crushes, but not so far as a romantic interest. More like a "he's cute and I enjoy watching him act/dance/sing." sort of way. With people I've actually known that I've had a crush on, I never allow it to go very far. Thoughts running through my head usually go something like this "He is really nice and I'm sure if he is interested in me he will seek out time with me." I've never had someone seek out time with me, so I've known not to let my crush go to far. This has served me very well in the past, with finding out that guys I've liked, liked someone else, or were already dating someone. My attitude toward romance in general is "if it's in God's plans, God will bring it to be. If not, he has got something better planned and I'm not going to spend my time worrying about it."

      #89: I actually do have a Prussian duchess in my ancestors, and I may have ties to either French, German or Czechoslovakian royalty.

      #113: Well basically I'm a borderline introvert, which means I have both introverted (a little more introverted then extroverted though) and extroverted tenancies. I love writing and reading and spending alone time, but on the other hand I love spending time with friends and laughing my head off and being extremely loud and annoying. I flip flop between types INFP (introversion, intuition, feeling, perception) and INFJ (judging).
      I'm equally right brained and left brained. So generally I'm just a bundle of contradictions, which I'm okay with. :)
      I saw you are a ESFJ (Extroversion, Sensing, Feeling, Judgment)
      Does this sound like you?

      This was fun dear! Thank you for doing it. *Hugs*

  9. 124! :) "I'll love you if..."

    (I'm keeping it nice an' simple an' easy.)


    1. cxxiv. "I'll love you if..." you book me a ticket to London or Paris. you write me a letter. you like to sing Les Miserables. you play the piano just for me. you take me swing dancing.

      what about you? + 105. 97. next place you want to travel/visit & fav. classical artist you enjoy playing on the piano. ;) xx

    2. Oooh, darling! Love your response. I would love to buy you a ticket to London or Paris (*sigh* the money). Sing Les Miserables; I can do that! Play piano just for you? Oh, sure! And write you a letter? Seriously, sometime I should. And of course swing dancing would be SO much fun

      105. What was your life like last year? New. Adventurous (we were in the process of mooooving! to australia! and i was excited! (and nostalgic). :) It was also a year of growth -- physically, mentally, and emotionally.

      97 -- I seriously can't think of anything but an brief dialog I remember hearing when I was about 10 in a movie. Somebody didn't want to admit something, so her friend abruptly said 'don't swallow it back, spit it out'! When I'm tempted not to speak to someone or about something, that quote pops into my mind! :P But it's not my 'favourite' quote -- it's just one of those random ones that has stuck in my head for a while.

      Next place to visit - PARIS, please. I'd also like to visit Melbourne and/or Sydney.

      Fav. classical artist? Errm. That's a hard one! Probably Evgeny Kissin -- he has such lovely, mesmerising touch.

      love you, girl!

      a xx

  10. well this is fun!! I've got quite a few for you. :)
    3,18,29,49, 64,111,121,130

    1. iii. october 25th, 1996 :) but technically, since I'm adopted, we don't really know. if you do vague calculations, I most likely was born in january. but, hey! I like autumn birthdays. ;)

      xviii. I've been to the emergency room {for myself} ONCE. and NEVER AGAIN will I ever have to step through those doors. a few summers ago, I stepped on a bee whose stinger apparently was infected. when the bee stung me, it injected whatever bacteria was on the stinger, and to this day my left foot is a teensy bit bigger than my right. :P

      xxix. toast and tea {or coffee} and whatever we have on hand. it really depends though. in autumn, I love granola. in summer, i rarely eat breakfast. in winter/spring, i like toast {chunky apple cinnamon bread from Target with either butter or a generous smathering of nutella - like I'm having right now :D}. for fancy breakfasts, i make french toast, potatos, and sunny side up eggs.

      lxiv. talking to guys {<<<seriously they're just human beings! what is wrong with me?!!! :P}. playing the violin in front of people. talking on the phone {<<seriously why is that so difficult?!!}. the very first few minutes when I arrive at a dance, just because I don't know too many people there; and right before the first dance, because I don't know whether or not someone will claim me. ;)

      cxi. sick and tired. :P I caught a cold the day after graduation, and it's still wearing off. it's morning here and I haven't had my toast, so I'm a bit hungry too. XD and I feel a bit restless, since I've been cooped up here for days and I've got craft supplies I need to go buy.

      cxxi. last time we checked I was 5'3" 1/2. apparently, an inch of that I owe to my thick hair, according to my friend. :P

      cxxx. go to europe + have adventures. get married. have one of my crafts published in a magazine. :) {add "accomplish my major in professional writing" to the list}.

      same for you, m'dear + 52. 118. 133.
