Oh my GOD you weenie it’s been up for like 2 hours and you just saw it now? :P
1: Talk about the first time you watched your favourite movie.
I don’t remember much about seeing Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs the first time, but it was either with my family or with my friends. I remember being like absolutely taken aback by the 3D (I saw it in theatres when it first came out) and all the AMAZING colours and the jokes which all had me in stitches. I went home and asked my brother to download it so I could watch it again and again. And it’s still my favourite, because every time I watch it, I find a new joke or detail or something that makes my day.
5: Talk about the best birthday you had.
16 was pretty good. I had two exams that day and another one the next day, but when I got home from the exams, my sister made me a really really nice cake and took me for sushi and I had a lot of fun with my family even though I spent a lot of time studying. Plus I got Apples to Apples for a present! And I love that game.
8: Talk about the thing you’re most proud of.
My volunteering opps in different places. Gosh, I’m so proud to be working among such amazing, accomplished activists from so many different backgrounds.
9: Talk about little things on your body that you like the most.
I like my freckles, and my hair is really shiny and soft. And recently I just noticed how nice my lips are, tbh. I don’t even know what it is about them, I just really think they’re pretty.
24: Talk about something someone told you that meant a lot.
When I was most recently with my CSO officer, she told me, “You’ve been surviving him alone, and you don’t need to do that any more.” and I broke down and cried because hearing that was such a relief. I mean, of course I knew that in the back of my mind, and my friends and family have more than made that clear, but actually hearing it out loud just felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders, because so often I feel needy or whiny or stagnant when I try to ask for help or admit that something’s affected me or something. And her saying that made me feel like… Basically it gave me permission to stop feeling that way, I guess? So yeah.
32: Talk about a place you remember from your childhood.
I could talk about my elementary school, that’s where the most horrifying and yet also funniest stories come from. That place was just so so awful and yet somehow I look back on it and like. So many things went catastrophically wrong and so many things were like Austere Academy levels of shitty that it’s ludicrous. You can’t help but laugh when I tell you about how I got literally left on the ceiling as a 2nd grader or how I got detention for a month because my little sister wouldn’t read out loud for her teacher (she was too afraid to), or how they taught us that directions were relative. And it’s okay, because I’m laughing too. Might as well, otherwise I’d be crying, right?
