I got my questions from eledhwenlin if you want topics leave a comment. =)
1.) You get to live in any country of the world for a year--which one would you choose?
Britain definitely. I'd love to live in London or Edinburgh. I'd love to get a British accent and I think a year of living there would go a long way to achieving that goal. Maybe it's a boring choice but I would want to live in a country where I know the language, because living in Japan was pretty troublesome at times when I only knew the bare basics of the language. 2.) What's your worst habit?
Procrastination for sure. I can't get anything done until the very last minute and not even then sometimes. I put things off for no reason at all. It's a really bad habit to have when you are trying to graduate... 3.) If you had to choose between only reading new to you books for the rest of your life and only rereading books you've already read--which one would it be?
Oh my... I think both options are horrible! I mean what if I read an amazing book and then I would never be allowed to re-read it? But then again, never reading new books, that would be just as bad. I guess I'd have to pick the new books, just because the last book to 'the Wheel of Time' series should come out this year and I need
to know how the story ends. 4.) Tell me about something that concerns you right now (political, RL stuff, whatever.)
My office chair broke last week and now I have to sit on my arm chair, while I'm on my computer. My computer desk is pretty high and the armchair is pretty low, which makes writing anything with my keyboard super awkward. I don't really have money to buy a new chair but I think I have to. So getting a new chair specifically and money trouble in general.5.) Is there anything that you plan to do this year that you're afraid of? (graduate, move somewhere else, etc.)
Hopefully I will do both of those things (graduate and move) but I'm more afraid of not being able to... I haven't even started on my thesis and that is not acceptable at all. I'm also going to apply to start a new decree so I'm worried I won't get in. What I'm most scared of though is going to the dentist and I need to do that soon. Urgh, I have the worst fear of dentists, it's awful. (I know it could be worse, I mean I can go if I make myself, but still, I hate it)6.) Five books everyone should have read in their life.
Hmm, this is hard because I mostly read fantasy and I know that isn't for everyone, buuut...
1) Something by Jane Austen
2) Something by Iain M Banks, his scifi will blow your mind, his cultures are so well thought out and then the plots always take you by surprise (also they almost always make me cry, which I count as a plus, because it made me feel so strongly)
3) Something by Terry Pratchett, because everyone needs witty humour. (I'd recommend Reaper Man or The Truth)
4) American Gods by Neil Gaiman, just for the sheer brilliance.
5) Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. I know people hate the writer (he's a real homophobic ass, it's true) but this story... I will defend it 'till the end of time, because the book shouldn't have to suffer just because the writer seems to be a weird right wing sympathizer. 7.) If you had $1000 that you could spend on anything, what would you buy?
I would use the money to travel. It would be awesome to go back to Japan for a visit, I really miss the food. Or I could just go back to London and spend the money left over after tickets and accommodation on shopping.
