Favorite tea?

I honestly don’t have a favorite type of tea! Any tea is wonderful enough for me.

Favorite place?

My favorite place is where I go to in my mind when I finish a truly lovely film or book. My mind feels float-like and weightless and I feel unlike my day-to-day self but at the same time more at one with my inner self and soul than ever before. It is the place where dreams meet with reality in the most surrealistic of ways. Alas, this is only a place in my mind – if only it were a physical place I could simply walk to in real life. Though I suppose experiencing such a magical place at all in one’s lifetime is a true blessing, as all the wonderful films and novels that have brought me to that mindset in my life are to me: a blessing.

Favorite movie?

I’m afraid I can’t come up with just one title!

Favorite song?

Again, I have many different favorite songs for many different moods or feelings. I do have to say though that Last Kiss by Taylor Swift comes as closer than any other songs to be my ultimate favorite. I have shed many tears to this song and it never fails to tap into a very fragile area of my heart.

Dogs or cats?

Dogs, but only because I have one that would be very unhappy with me if I answered this question in any other way! (Both cats and dogs are wonderful.)

Summer or Winter?

Summer, for the longer vacation days.

How would you describe your style?

No idea, I’m sorry!

Do you have a best friend?

No, I don’t!

Ever been in love?

I love lots of things but I have never been in love in the sense that you are asking.

What kind of toothpaste do you use?

The tube kind?

First letter of your middle name?

I don’t have a middle name hehe :)

Do you have an upcoming trip? Where are you going?

Yes, I’m going to Macau!

Tell me an important moment in your life and why it impacted you.

Do you like a particular physical activity? Why?

Yoga is nice as I love the way it calms and clears my mind.

Which idioms do you use most often?

I probably use many idioms without realizing that they are idioms! Is this sentence an idiom? I don’t have a clue. (Answer: I’m not sure what’s an idiom and what’s not.)

What is a book everyone said you’d like/you thought you’d like but didn’t? Why?

I’m not sure if this qualifies but The Fault in Our Stars? Everyone said it would be completely amazing and other great adjectives so I had such high expectations for it but I found it to be only good? I thought it was a good book but not as good as everyone else seemed to have found it.

What type of music do you listen to when you want to relax?

Galaxy ambient sounds! I don’t find myself thinking “I want to relax” a lot, but when I have trouble sleeping in the early hours of the morning, I often listen to galaxy sounds and imagine myself floating around in the universe among the sea of stars and find myself drifting closer and closer to dreamland.

If you were not pursuing what you currently love, what else would you be doing?

I am not pursuing anything as of this moment (aimless wanderer is my name).

Tell me something that has happened to you today.

I re-watched The Grand Budapest Hotel for the second time with my mom today. Wes is wonderful! He makes me and my eyes/aesthetic very happy.

Your favourite vintage film?

I’m not sure what qualifies as vintage. It’s a Wonderful Life, The Red Shoes, Cinema Paradiso, Au Revoir Les Enfants and The 400 Blows are what I’m guessing is “vintage” and very near and dear to my heart.

A fond childhood memory of yours?

There was this little window seat in the study room of our old house. The little cushion was rather narrow and could only fit one body which I adored since it meant I would not be disturbed. It had light yellow stripes and the prettiest pink background color. The seat was covered by the prettiest light veil covering that extended from the ceiling like a tiny canopy and I always loved to go and hide in the seat behind the veil and read. Often times I imagined that once I stepped into the window seat area, I was invisible. I remember whispering quiet things and giggling at the thought that no one was able to hear my whispers because I was hidden by the magic of the veil. The little space between the cushion and the wall beneath the window was also my hiding spot for secret things that I wanted to keep secret.

One thing you feel strongly about?

I feel very strongly that one should always be honest with one’s feelings. 

Thank you for tagging me, lovelies :)

"The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours. It is an amazing journey, and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins."

Look at the gold borders on this one!! 
Maquipucuna, Ecuador

These fore-edge paintings can be found on some of the books from one of the first lending libraries of Estonia, founded by some peasants in 1872 who apparently couldn’t even spell properly (in their statutes, they proudly announce the founding of the “liprary”) but on the other hand surely knew how to decorate their beloved and precious books.
