Facts?? About ME?? There has always been discord between me and that… But it can also be fun sometimes. It’s hard for me to think up personal facts, so this took some time.
But what a nice way to get to know me!
TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish – just a (top) ten countdown (or however many you got) for general or bookish topics!
I don’t have 10 bookish facts, but I’ll do general facts.
1. I have fallen so hard for Game of Thrones for the last couple months.
The gif actually made me think of it because I found a GoT gif right away! But really, a friend recommended it to me this summer – I already knew about it, but at first I was uncomfortable with *whispers* sex… BUT I GOT OVER IT. And it’s amaaaaazing… I’m in the middle of season 5 right now. *sighs* Anybody else think Jon Snow is dreamy? HIS HAIR. Anybody else say his name like Ygritte every time you think of it? I do.
2. I studied abroad in Japan from late March, 2015 to early February, 2016.
It was beautiful there! The culture is so different from the US. And people seem generally nicer when it comes to hospitality… And since I like anime and manga so much, I was sure to visit popular places like that around Tokyo. I brought home some manga and souvenirs, most being anime-related.
But really, there are shrines and temples hidden everywhere or not hidden, beautiful mountains, quaint country areas full of rice fields… The festivals are exciting and everyone gets into them. They show many aspects to the culture. Of course festival and general food there was great, too. The strangest things I ate were raw horse meat and cod sperm sack sushi…
I wish I could show you all the pictures me and friends took!
3. I am just now slowly getting into audiobooks (or jumping in with great fervor).
I can still be very picky about narrators… More on that in an upcoming audiobook review *waggles eyebrows* I’ve only gotten through 2, but I have, like, 15 lined up… And I have some at my local library that I can download to my iPod! They’re fantastic when I want to work while listening, or take a walk while listening to something. I wish I had tried them earlier!
4. I am about to start my last year of college in August.
It’s been a long journey that seems way shorter. And now I am faced with the unknown of my future and having no freaking idea what I actually want to do with the rest of my life… I’m just trying to focus on finding a car and an apartment right now!
5. I consider myself asexual and aromantic as I am right now.
I know some people just know, but I can’t be too sure about myself… I don’t have any experience, at all, so I’m also wondering if there is a chance I could be strongly demi-sexual and/or demi-romantic or something. An even better term for myself is autochris-sexual; look it up! Very enlightening ~
But none of that means I don’t like cuddling or platonic cute things. This is a huge spectrum.
6. My favorite animals:
From land animals, it was wolves for a long time, but I think it’s foxes, now! They’re so cute and mischievous!
From aquatic animals, narwhals all the way!
From air animals, owls are freaking gorgeous! I also think bats are really cute ❤ (except the vampire bats or whatever they are…)
7. I want a chameleon so badly.
Have you ever watched one? They are so clumsy and cute!
8. I am a gamer!
Not competitively and not for the shooter games. I like story! My all time favorite is Okami – PLAY IT. I have a soft spot for the Jak and Daxter games. OMG, Final Fantasy is wonderful! I’m really looking forward to FFXV and the FFVII remake (*^*) LOVE Zelda games – Twilight Princess is my favorite for now. Seriously can’t wait for Breath of the Wild. And at the moment, I’m in the middle of God of War. Kratos is very angry.
9. I really want to learn to draw.
The problem is that I’m poor at motivating myself, I get discouraged, and I have a slight hand problem that would force me to need to take it slow. I have thin and kind of weak hands. One day!
10. I wish there was a career in which I could work with magic and old ruins and dragons and books.
But I’ll settle for something that lets me travel. At least old ruins are an option! And beautiful forests… I just love finding the magic in things and places and nature. Kinda relates to #4, huh?
There you have it! 10 facts about me. I love tags, awards, and memes that let me share more about myself!
Thanks for listening ~~~ ta-ta for now, worms!
