What is your favorite season? What is it and why?
My favorite season of all time has to be autumn. Fall in Canada, to me is amazing. I find it to have the best temperature, where it isn’t too cold nor is it too hot/humid. Should I also mention sweater weather! I have way too many men’s sweater to pass up on autumn. I guess it’s also because I’m 5’1 it’s easy for me to throw on a sweater, leggings, and combat boots and I’m done with my outfit.
It’s also the perfect time for tea, not pumpkin spiced latte. And baked goods even though I don’t have a sweet tooth. Oh and thanksgiving! Getting fat from all the good food, and no one will know because it’s cold out and sweaters are just that amazing.
Then there is all the great scenery, and all the walks one can take. I love looking at the leaves and I walk everywhere. So it’s the best of both worlds. There is also Halloween, which who doesn’t love Halloween. And even if you don’t like sweater weather there’s a whole bunch of other outfits a girl can make without looking slutty/trashy. You can still wear a dress and layer it with a flannel or cardigan, scarf etc. I feel like there a more options dressing for fall then there is for summer or winter.
Overall I feel like the autumn is more of a family-esque time with good food and warm drinks and cute outfits. (:
Do you have any special talents?
To be honest I don’t even know what is considered as a “special” talent. Is it something you can do and no one else can? I’m pretty sure there are many people who can probably do everything I think I can do, 10x better than me.
special talent – often athletic, creative, or artistic aptitude. b : general intelligence or mental power : ability. 5. : a person of talent or a group of persons of talent in a field or activity. — tal·ent·ed \-lən-təd\ adjective.
Since it said creative aptitude, I would say my talent is drawing. I’m actually more secure with my drawing abilities than I am with my writing. It’s also probably because I know that there is less creative freedom with writing that I chose drawing. I also have been doing it since I was little. I mean I drew a pretty decent but obvious drawing of my dad in a plane when I was 3-4 years.
I know I had my proportions all wrong, I was drawing girls that have massive heads with itty bitty waists and short stumpy legs. But we all start some where.
I never really had anyone who critically challenged my art, I would show people and they either said it looked nice or it didn’t. No one really tried to tell me to change anything until my first year of highschool. Where I met my (not ex best friend) and she’s not studying to be an illustrator so you clearly know that she knew her shit when she was telling me I could improve. But honestly do thank her for steering me in the right direction. We all have our style and way we create and she helped me find it.
But yea, from then on I learned how to properly sketch/draw people, male and female! I now do traditional (pencil and paper/pencil crayons etc) and digital (tablet & laptop) and water color. I do want to expand my knowledge but it’s hard when that not what you’re studying. Though I do draw little doodles on my exam papers $:
I’ll maybe put something in the future but ya.
Special Talent = Drawing
What is your favorite quote or a quote that means a lot to you?
One quote that I loved was
I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I just lived the length of it. I want to live the width of it as well. – Diane Ackerman
What was your first car? What is your current vehicle?
Since I am a university student, and I currently live 15 mins away from campus by walk. I walk. I also love to walk, there has been times where I would get to a bus stop to wait for it and I can’t stand, standing around for it that I start to walk instead. BUT. If I had to buy a car, for my first one I would probably buy a Volkswagen Beetle 2003 model with stick shift. My reasoning is just that I’m a small person and it’s a small car, I think that goes hand in hand. But ideally maybe in my 30s I’d go for a nicer car like a Lexus. Maybe.
Name a few of your weaknesses.
For sure it’s easier to talk negative about yourself than it is to talk positively. And I think that’s also because it awkward to think that you’re hot shit. Because at the end of the day no one is hot shit, but one would like to believe. So when there is a person who is overly confident it comes off as cocky and rude. Which isn’t the case some times.
Anyways moving on. Some of my weaknesses are that it takes a lot to get me to do something, hence I procrastinate a lot. Which I honestly wish I didn’t. I have a really f***ed up sleeping schedule, thus I am a night owl. Again I want to desperately change that.
One that is my strength and weakness is that I’m honest, sometimes I wish I can just keep my mouth shut. I’m quick tempered, and can get annoyed very easily. I also wish I didn’t tolerate people and then blow up on them. THOUGH. I get over things pretty quickly. The only way I hold grudges are when the circumstances are detrimental.
Name a few of your strengths.
A couple of my strengths I’m proud of are, being stubborn and sarcastic. I like how I’m pretty easy going, and maybe too laid back. While being laid back I think I’m not that judge-y and pretty hard to really anger me. I would like to think that I am a good friend, and that I am there for them when they need me. Uhm I also think one of my strengths is that I’m sociable and don’t really feel awkward, and that I can honestly speak my mind even if it may seem a little bit harsh.
I work really well when I am motivated, and I can typically stay motivated for long amounts of time. I also think that I type pretty fast which I’m just going to throw into this list.
What is the thing you wish you were good at?
There’s a lot I wish I was good at. When I was young I did an assortment of after school things. I took swimming classes, skating classes, chess class, dance, I ski, art classes, piano, and guitar. There’s probably so much more that I did. Hear me out, I never said I was good at anything, I just said I did all of them. I mean I was better at some things than others, but truly the thing that I wish I was good at was to pick one thing and get abnormally good at it. I was that kind of girl that can decently pick things up but I could never truly blow anyone away with my skills. Even now, I juggle drawing and blogging because just doing one eventually bores and I have to switch to something else. Watch by next semester I’m going to bring my guitar and try to learn that too.
