11 RANDOM Facts about me:

  1. I love travelling and exploring, especially in-depth.
  2. I love the desert and snow equally. One of my favourite places on Earth has both.
  3. I drink too much tea. So does everyone in my family.
  4. I love dogs, and most dogs love me–some after all of twenty seconds πŸ™‚
  5. Science-fiction has been a part of my life since my little brother brought home Stig of the Dump and kept on going on about it. I’ve never read it, but I have read lots of other books from his shelf, which inspire me now.
  6. I’m a middle child. I guess that explains a lot πŸ™‚
  7. I love crystals, and constantly bore friends by liking photos from The Geology Page.
  8. Tarot-reading is one of my skills.

  10. The Fifth Element and Practical Magic are two of my favourite movies.
  11. My life without music would be unthinkable.

My Answers:

  1. What is your proudest moment/achievement?Β 
    Finishing a short sailing course. I had gotten sick, and came very, very close to quitting. But I didn’t, and managed to earn a certificate which I’ve never actually used.
  2. Are you making any New Year’s Resolutions? If so, what is one of them?
    My resolution for 2016 is to live life more creatively, to explore different ways to express myself.
  3. Which of your own posts is your favorite, and why?
    Introducing PiniMe. I hadn’t thought that I could create a blogging event (with a badge) and have it up and running within 24 hours. I’m almost as proud of it as I am of my sailing certificate πŸ™‚
  4. Have you ever had a nickname? If so, what is/was it?
    My family has nicknames for me, but I don’t really like them, so I won’t share them. A friend calls me Leens. I don’t like that either. Only one person has called me Lee, which I didn’t mind at all πŸ™‚
  5. What one thing can you not live without?
    My computer.
  6. What kind of posts do you enjoy writing the most? (Poems, reviews, recipes, etc.)
    I’m happy writing about what I’m most enthusiastic about at that time, or feel the need to share.
  7. What was/is your favorite school subject?
    On average English, but Geography, History and Physics (depending on the teacher) were up there too.
  8. What is your biggest pet peeve in life?
    Strident noise-makers, including voices.
  9. What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to blogging?
    When WordPress is slow to load or takes a long time saving my post.
  10. What do you enjoy doing when you’re not blogging?
    Writing, creating graphics and reading. Terribly boring I know, but I’ve never claimed to be interesting πŸ™‚
  11. What is your current occupation?
    Self-employed writer/designer.

  4. If you could ban one thing in this world, what would that be?
  5. You have to stay on an island Survivor-style for a whole month. You’re only allowed to take five things with you. What five things (not people) would you take.

  7. Which book do you read when you’re in a ‘there’s nothing to read’ mood?
