Fluency in every language, including dead languages.

I have studied Geology at univerisity if my mental health hadn't been so bad in high school that I didn't have decent science and maths grades.

Yes and no. Yes beacuse of my fear, no because I'd hate to see my loved ones die continuously. It would be lonely.

Marie Antoinette or Albert Eintstein. Or Keanu Reeves.


Q98: Would you say you are happy?

Mosty.


Q99: What one piece of advice would you give to yourself at age eighteen?

Just keep moving forwards, I promise you'll get there. Don't fret over the small things because when you're 23, you won't care about them any more. They don't matter, so don't worry


Q100: Where would you like to be in five years’ time?

Travelling the world. Or married, maybe with a child. I'll be coming up for 29 so I just want me life to be sorted.

Okay, since I was tagged by Saph, I want to tag the following people:
hannah
Morag
Jasmine
Lucy
Kaelin

Also, I'm sorry if the format of this looks all weird and off, I'm going to need to try harder to find a way to sort it..

Until next time, be excellent to each other.
