What attracts you (in love)
Um, have you met me? I study and work too much to date.
However, I guess for me the true attraction lies in being comfortable around someone. When the conversation never needs to be forced, when you can make each other laugh and have a bit of banter. When there’s no rush or need to be defined as ‘something’ instead just enjoying what is.
If You Won The Lottery…
It’s funny because this question always reminds me of language classes when trying to learn how to use the subjunctive/if-clauses/imperfect subjunctive. Usually the responses were fairly run-of-the-mill because everyone was too freaked out with trying to understand the subjunctive.
In reality, my response is boring… I’d buy a house, a detached house, and preferably it would be several hundred meters away from my neighbours. Beyond that, I’d use the rest for travelling comfortably and staying in holiday apartments or quirky hotels.
Best Trip of Your Life
Obviously it has to be Italy.
The first time I went with my family in 2008 was great but I always feel you never get the same enjoyment the first time you go to a place as you do subsequent times when you know what you’re looking forward to.
So, in 2009 I went on the coach tour again but all by myself! And it was perfect. It was a tad lonely sometimes but for the most part the rest of the people on the bus were decent company and took to watching out for me since I was only 20.
What’s in your bag/wallet?
Well I have many bags, but usually with all the same junk in it: purse, kindle/book, notebook, pen(s), keys, headphones, and passport.
I like to always be prepared for a writing emergency hence the notebook, and a selection of pens in case someone nicks one. My kindle or a paperback so if I’ve any downtime I can fill it with some much needed reading for my courses. Keys, for obvious reasons; headphones so I can fill the silences or awful outdoor noises with my choice of noise. And passport, because despite being nearly 30 I often still get ID’d and so it’s my only form of ID. But also in case of sudden apocalypse, then the passport will remain handy while the airports are still open.
