Time to show the drafts folder a little lovin’ and also kill two birds with one stone: Kaila tagged me for this TMI survey waaaay back [please don’t look at the date] and I thought it was only fitting in an effort to become a bit more visible. Also, who doesn’t like a some survey action?! It’s a marvelously fun time filling these in and I hope you enjoy it, too. Note that it’s a long survey so I decided to split it into two parts. Next one to come when the mood hits me.
1: What are you wearing?
Not a dress for once but – weekend-ing plus writing this at night – the brand new PJ pants my mum has sewn me and that arrived in the mail yesterday.
2: Ever been in love?
Truly and deeply in a this-will-last-forever way? No. Maybe I’m too picky [see #15, too]?!
3: Ever had a terrible breakup?
Break-ups, yes, but none that time and friends couldn’t heal.
4: How tall are you?
All of 5’4. Sadly no amount of stretching can convince the measuring tape elsewise.
5: How much do you weigh?
Does anybody really answer this?? I couldn’t even if I wanted to [but I don’t] because the scale and me parted ways when I moved out from my parents’. Meaning four years ago.
6: Any tattoos?
Now come the huge revealing questions [read: the boring part]: no.
7: Any piercings?
You guessed it: No.
8: Favorite movie couple?
9: Favorite show?
Maybe I’m the only one saying this but: none. Or none that is still on. Gilmore Girls were a favourite after I got hooked but I started late and thanks to not owning a TV I have yet to see all episodes. And hey, who wouldn’t like to have a pajama party with Rory and Lorelai??
10: Favorite bands?
That’s a tough one. I tend to randomly listen to songs but hardly like a whole album. Either way, Coldplay, Maroon 5,…
11: Something you miss?
The carelessness of being a child. Life tends to get more complicated by the year and sometimes I just wish my biggest worries were which dress to put or whom to invite to my birthday.
12: Favorite song?
By now you know I’m not playing favourites so here are a few that brighten my day and bring up memories whenever I hear them:
‘Je veux’ by Zaz.
And this one is long, yes, and probably unusual but I like it a lot. Good good memories.
13: How old are you?
23. Officially one of the twenty-somethings.
14: Zodiac sign?
15: Quality you look for in a partner?
Charm. Humor. Loyalty. Authenticity. Honesty. And then some more. I can’t deny I’m picky.
16: Favorite Quote?
There are too many to pick just one. But this one is pretty good especially in the context of social media.
17: Favorite actor?
Audrey Hepburn used to be one of my idols growing up. Not just for her acting skills but personality, too.
18: Favorite color?
Coral and shades of red. Except for pants [I don’t really ever wear them] I can’t think of a single basic item of clothing I don’t own in coral.
19: Loud music or soft?
Soft. Loud is making me feel uncomfortable. Especially when running I need to hear my breathing and footsteps.
20: Where do you go when you’re sad?
Outside for a walk. Nothing helps me clear my mind and sort thoughts bouncing around in my head like moving in crisp fresh air. Bonus points if it’s in the countryside.
21: How long does it take you to shower?
Does anybody time that? A rough guesstimate would be a little less than 10 minutes but turning off the shower when massaging in shampoo.
22: How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
Are we talking the whole routine from getting up to leaving the apartment? Then 1.5 hours. Why, yes, I need my time in the AM though I’m capable of shortcuts.
23: Ever been in a physical fight?
Luckily not. If so I’ll try to channel my knowledge from years of Kung Fu training.
24: Turn on?
Positivity. A sense of humor. Intelligence.
25: Turn off?
Negativity. Selfishness. Know-it-alls. People who focus on appearance too much [adding this because I’ve noticed this again lately].
26: The reason I started blogging?
My original reason was my passion for writing and connecting with others but also curiosity. I wanted to see why everybody else enjoyed blogging such a lot – and now I know it.
… to be continued.
Happiness-inducing today: The gorgeous coloured leaves on the path when I was running outside.

Your turn: Pick a few of the questions and answer them!
Did I successfully accomplish the goal of spilling too much information 😉 ??
