I’d like to thank a person I now consider a friend, Jay, for tagging me on his recent TMI post 🙂 If you don’t already know about Jay’s blog, please check it out, he offers some of the most genuine poetry out there. His words truly come from the heart.
This part gave me the opportunity not only to learn new things about Jay, but throught answering the questions, I got to do some re-evaluation on my own self. I believe I have answered as genuinely as I could, so I hope you enjoy 😀
What are you currently wearing?
A shirt I got from the University of Florence where I was a trainee at, and sweat pants. Keeping it simple folks.
Have you ever been in love?
I think, but then again, if you’re not sure, then maybe you haven’t 😛 But whose to define love? Love comes in many shapes and forms.
Have you ever had a terrible breakup?
How old are you?
Turning 23 this May 😀
How tall are you?
1.67 meters, which I think is like 5 foot 5 if you’re counting in feet.
How much do you weigh?
61 kgs. I’ve always been like 55 but ever since I started working out I’ve been constantly gaining weight. Let’s hope it’s just because I’m gaining muscle 😂
Do you have any piercings?
I have one on my upper ear, nothing too extreme, don’t know how to describe it really. I guess I’ll use a photo:
What’s your favourite drink?
I’m going to have to say tea of any kind 😀 Tea just always has a way of relaxing you.
What’s you favourite song?
My favorite the past year or so has been ‘Speeding Cars’ by Walking on Cars, but they just released a new song, and I think it’s about to steal the No.1 position:
What’s your zodiac sign?
Taurus. Have no idea what that means about me.
Disclaimer: I think I heard that the zodiac signs changed a couple of years ago so it may have changed.
How long does it take you to shower?
Not too long. Now baths, those are a different topic.
What’s your favourite show?
I am going to have to say House MD, because although I love shows like How I met your mother and Friends, I think House MD is the one that I can say has affected me most in life. There are still times where I think of things said and done in the series.
What’s your favourite band?
Going to have to say Mumford and Sons.
Something you really miss?
Nothing in particular. I am too eager to experience new things in this phase in life to miss anything.
Sidenote: Now that I think about it again, maybe chilling on a couch in Santorini, Greece.
Where do you go when you’re sad?
Easy. Up on the hills near my house. My house is located on a hilly/mountainy area and whenever I am sad or need to think I just begin taking walks up there. I have literally declared that if anything bad was to happen to a member of my family, then that’s where you would find me, up on the peak of one of those mountains. It’s not uncommon that when I go I encounter chicken, goats, pigs, horses and other animals. Also not uncommon is that I encounter groups of stray dogs barking at me and chasing after me.
How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
About an hour and a half. I like enjoying my mornings, taking my time and not hurrying. I enjoy getting up, making tea, listening to some music, checking out WP posts, in general taking my time.
Have you ever been in a physical fight?
What turns you on?
Strength. Mental and physical strength. A person who is determined, who is ambitious and has goals in life is important for me. People who think outside the box. Calm, recollected people.
What turns you off?
People who are undetermined are a major turn-off for me. People who let others make decisions for themselves, who are one with the crowd, who go with the flow, who let others determine their life.
Qualities you look for in a partner?
Like I said, mental and prefferably physical strength, a person who will motivate me but who will also be interested in what I have to offer. A good listener.
What’s your favourite colour?
Loud music or soft?
Loud. That’s when the emotions are freest.
“Keep the earth below my feet.” (It’s actually a lyric from a song, does that count?? :P)
I’m not huge on movies, but I guess I would say the classics, like Denzel Washington, Robert de Niro and Tom Hanks bring out the best emotions for me.
Do you have any fears?
Oooooh sometimes I think fears are all I have 😂 Lately I’ve been getting better at handling them though.
What’s the last thing that made you cry?
Leaving Italy (I had been living there since December of last year). I cried when I said goodbye to my friends there. I made some true friends.
Last time you said you loved someone?
I think last time I said it was to my sister or my cousin, both of whom I adore ❤
Last book you read?
Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. A truly magnificent book. This book describes 3 generations of a family, combining 3 completely different stories all in one book. Plus, it speaks of true historical events that happened in Smyrna, Greece, some of which my own great-grandparents were part of.
The book you’re currently reading?
‘The Zahir’ by Paulo Coelho.
Last show you watched?
I don’t remember really.. I watched a ton of clips of FRIENDS on Youtube a couple months back, if that counts.
Last place you were?
Last sport you played?
I like doing sports outside, running in races, going hiking, and I also go to a gym.
Who’s the last person you talked to?
The last song you sang?
I think I was singing ‘What I’ve Done’ by Linkin Park out loud in the car yesterday while it was playing on the radio 😂
Favourite chat up line?
How you doin? 😛
Do you have a crush?
It doesn’t matter.
The relationship between you and the person you last texted?
I person I met in Italy with whom I am practising my italian 😂
Anything with meat in it.
Place you want to visit?
Berlin 😀 Lately I’ve been slightly obsessed with Germany. And Amsterdam.
What’s the last time you kissed someone?
A couple of weeks ago.
Last time you were insulted?
I haven’t been insulted so to say lately but I have been deceived and treated unfairly. But, you know what they say, the wheel will turn, eventually 🙂
Not crazy about sweets. I would say anything simple with cream and not too much chocolate.
What instruments do you play?
Guitar, used to play the clarinet and a little bit of piano.
Favourite piece of jewellery?
Not a huge fan of jewllery either. I have a bracelet I just got, me, my cousin and my sister have the same ❤ I know what you’re thinking, it’s a friendship bracelet and it’s stupid, that’s what I thought too. But I don’t know, I kind of like it 🙂
Last time you hung out with anyone?
I guess with my sister, we hang out quite a lot.
