told me to. Started this like 4 hours ago but was interrupted <.< Feel free to do this yourself, I'm curious to get to know you guys better ^^ And you can always ask questions if you want.
MEET THE ARTIST MEMELegit first name
: Anna (the second most common female name in Sweden)Middle name:
Maria (the most common female name in Sweden)Nickname:
My aunt calls me MLT when she texts me (Mosters Lilla Troll), but I don't really have any "real" nicknamesLocation:
177 or 178 cm, if I stand up straight.... but I slouch like an unwatered plant.Zodiac sign:
Sagittarius. The centaur archer 8DAny pets:
Tyson the "cat". Favorite thing about yourself:
I dunno.... my self-esteem is kinda rock-bottom but I do like some things about myself. Some things that are answered in questions below but here I will say that I think I do make a conscious effort to be a good person, and to help people around me and make their lives better. I try not to waste what I have.Worst habit:
Procrastination, I'm awful
with that, but that's a boring one, we can do better... hmm... I get lazy with food when I'm alone. I'll just eat lazy yoghurt for like four days straight and not really take care of myself, which is especially not good for my weight issues. So that's something I need to work on <.<
Fun Random fact:
Continuing on ikiuni's theme here... if I had been a boy, supposedly I would have been named Fredrik. My dad was apparently strongly opposed to this. Because in English, Fredrik sounds pretty friggin lame.
Identity, Sexuality and PersonalityGender identity:
*ponders* Panromantic asexual I guess? It's not something I really think about, I'm not like MUST DEFINE MY IDENTITY WITH LABELS, I just kinda exist as I am. But I'm never attracted to someone physically- I can think they are beautiful or handsome, but I'm not eager to jump in their pants. Kinda like horses, I can think a horse is absolutely gorgeous but I'm not going to get freaky with it
I can be very strongly attracted to someone's personality, but all I want to do is hugs and snuggles, even kissing is kinda... gross <.<Relationship status:
Single. Not really actively doing anything about it. Don't really care. If someone special shows up, cool, but if not, it's not something that bothers me.
Routine"Early Bird" or "Night Owl":
I hate getting up in the morning. But if I DO get up, I'm most productive before noon. I stay up late but I don't get anything done.Bath or shower:
I wish I was just magically clean all the time because I hate getting wet x.x But shower. Before we moved we had a bathtub but it was kinda cramped, not very comfortable to lay against a hard surface, water got cold pretty quickly... naaah showers are quick and simple.First thought in the morning: I could get up and be super amazingly productive today... or I could try to get back into that awesome dream...
*rolls over and goes back to sleep*Last thought before falling asleep at night:
Like ikiuni I generally make up stories for myself. Sometimes they are continuations of dreams (I have pretty epic dreams, it's like going to the movies every night xD), sometimes alternate endings of a book I've read recently or a movie or tv show that I've watched. Sometimes just random stuff. Usually very melodramatic and full of adventure and battles.
School/WorkDo you work or are you a student:
Right now I'm working a summer job, my last day is Friday (I clean a factory and sit in the guardhouse and do guardhousey things like answer the phone and weigh trucks and write delivery reports, this is the third summer I've worked there). Then in September I go back to university where I'm studying psychology.What do you do well:
Honestly... not a whole lot. I'm one of those "jack of all trades, master of none" people. I've dabbled in many different hobbies but I'm not really great at any one thing in particular. Just your average mediocre singe.Where do you see yourself in 5 years:
No idea. On my current path, I'll be a practicing psychologist, but because I struggle with interacting with other humans, that might be difficult... we'll see. I'm not very existential, I'll end up where I end up and it's better to focus on making sure what happens now is good. A good present lays the groundwork for a better future. There are some things that I would like to see happen, but... I don't think it's very plausible.
Habits (Do you…?)Drink:
I used to...? A few years ago I played soccer, went crosscountry skiing, practiced taekwondo, did some running (entered a half-marathon and that was enough pain to last me a while xD). But my knee and hip are complete crap, I flinch and hobble for several steps just standing up from a chair, so these days I just go on gentle bike rides. Hopefully my meeting with a physical therapist on Monday will be helpful.Have a go-to comfort food:
Nutella, or dark chocolate, or rosehip soup.Have a nervous habit:
I'm very.... "mouthy". I chew my lip and the inside of my cheek, or just sort of rub my teeth together. I end up chewing a lot of gum just to keep myself occupied because otherwise I'll chew bloody holes in my lip without realizing it. I used to bite my nails too but I made myself stop, but instead I just cannot sit still, I'll bounce my foot constantly. Drives my mom completely up the wall.
What is your favorite…?Physical quality (in yourself):
Hm. I like my teeth, never had a cavity or braces or anything, not even my wisdom teeth are a problem. And I think my face and hair look quite nice in general when I put my hair up. In general I'm fine with how I look, I'm just not at all photogenic, I think there are two good pictures of me in existence xDIn Others:
I think hair is often something I notice. And... noses. As odd as it might sound. But to me, the nose is a very important and defining characteristic of the face. People often talk about eyes but honestly I don't really get around to noticing the eyes until I know someone very well... then I can study them for ages xD But it's not something I look at right away.Mental/emotional quality (in yourself):
I like to think that I am very honest, or at least try to be. I'm told that I'm very patient and comforting (my friends often jokingly call me "mom") so I guess that is good too?Food:
I really like baked salmon. And just about any steamed vegetable.Drink:
Chocolate milk (yes I'm five years old), rosehip soupAnimal:
Kitties, ponies, duckies, owlsArtist/Band/Group:
Pffff I listen to such a wide variety of music, it depends entirely on my mood. From Rob Zombie and Alice In Chains to Globus and movie soundtracks, with a dash of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stone Temple Pilots, and Norah Jones in between, to name just a few. I'm not really a fan of country, anything with really hateful or misogynistic lyrics (unfortunately a lot of rap falls in here but I don't hate rap as a style, there are some very cool rap songs out there), or Katy Perry. But just about anything else I can at least listen to in the car.Author/Poet:
Tolkien, David Clement-Davies, Brian Jacques, Anne Rice, Karin Boye (brilliant Swedish poet), Naomi Novik, John Ajvide Lindqvist (he wrote Let The Right One In, among other things, the only author who has ever successfully creeped me out). I like reading.TV Show:
Stargate Atlantis, NCIS, umm... honestly I don't watch a ton of tv, I don't really follow any shows. I'll watch Midsomer Murders if it's on. Sherlock sometimes. I enjoy some anime but I haven't seen too many yet.Actor/Actress:
Sigourney Weaver, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Sandra Bullock. They are awesome ladies who make movies I like. I'm really terrible at celebrities though, I never recognize anyone in movies. And a lot of the popular male actors kinda all look the same to me. <.<
