Meet Me?

A celebration is in order: a few minutes after last Friday’s post, my blog received its 1000th view! Yaaay! My blog has only been online for about 7 weeks now and I’m quite proud of what we have achieved in this time. So: a big thank you to all my readers and please keep reading! (I can’t wait for the moment we hit 2000 views!) However, even though my blog has been viewed a lot of times, I still don’t have many followers. In case you don’t know how to sing up to be a follower: in the column to the right of this post it says ‘Follow blog via e-mail’. Simply type in your e-mail address there and you will receive an e-mail notifying you every time I post something. If you enjoy reading my blog, please sign up!

Back to everyday life: upon somebody’s suggestion popular demand, I’ve decided to answer the same questions I posed my flat mates two posts ago. Enjoy!

seen (any of my) room(s) knows by the amount of cards I hang on the walls.

What’s your favorite animal?: The red panda!
You’re given 1 million dollars, what do you spend it on?: Studying at a fancy university like Cambridge for as long as possible.
Which bad habits, if any, drive you crazy?: Strange/disturbing eating habits.
Have any celebrity crushes?: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (yes, as a couple) AND Ewan McGregor AND Heath Ledger (before he died) AND Mr. Darcy. (female friends back home, please remind me of the ones I forgot)

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?: Recently I’ve somehow gotten myself all excited about going on a castle tour in Scotland.
Name 1 regret you have: Being so obnoxious as a kid that I didn’t want to learn Spanish so now I speak crap Spanish.

Name 1 thing you love about being an adult: Going wherever I want, whenever I want without having to report my whereabouts.
