Too Much Information Award

by - 1:31 PM

So while I was gone, Catalina nominated me for the Too Much Information Award (THANK YOU!). Thought you already knew way too much about me? Think again!

Q1) What are you wearing?
The ugliest pair of socks I own, jeans that don't fit anymore after I lost 5kilos on the Inka Trail and a crop top, even though it's way too cold for that. I think I should go get a sweater...

Q2) Ever been in love?
Oh yes, the early posts on this blog are a sad reminder of that.

Q3) Ever had a terrible breakup?
No, I never got into anything you got call a serious relationship, so no terrible break ups either.

Q4) How tall are you?
1.68m, so in the Netherlands I'm a shorty. In South America and Asia I'm a giant.

Q5) How much do you weigh?
I was 57 kilos when I stepped on a plane to see the Nasca lines. Two weeks later, after the Inka Trail and food poisoning, I couldn't wear my clothes without looking ridiculous, so I guess I was more like 52 kilos at that moment. I gained a little weight and now I'm around 54, which seems to be exactly right for me.

Q6) Any tattoos?
No. I've watched way too many Miami Ink episodes to get a tattoo. The pain...

Q7) Any earrings?
Not anymore. My ears react in a very nasty way.

Q8) OTP?
What? Did I miss something while I was on vacation? Let me Google it...
Ah, found it! One True Pairing. Sure, I knew that. Of course I knew, how dare you doubt me! As for an OTP, I'm gonna go for the Starkid version of Dramione.

Q9) Favorite shows?
Game of Thrones, Under the Dome, Wicked Tuna.

Q10) Favorite bands?
Train, fun. and The Script. I get possessive of 'my' bands, so whenever someone says they like one ot my bands, I'm like: 'Really, bet you didn't know that...' and then I'll go to all lengths to prove they're not as much of a fan as I am XD
Q11) Something you miss?
My friends from junior year.

Q12) Favorite song?
At this moment it's Bulletproof Picasso, by Train (what a surprise must that be after question 10 XD)

Q13) When is your birthday?
July 17th

Q14)Zodiac sign?

Q15) Quality you look for in a partner?
He must be able to make me laugh, but also make me think about stuff. I wouldn't be able to be in a relationship with someone who doesn't have a sense of humor and can't have a good discussion with me.

Q16) Favorite quote?
'How do you write "pineapple"?'
'Pine as in pine, apple as in apple.'
This was an actual conversation between me and one of my friends. It's not an inspirational quote, nor a quote of some famous person, but it never fails to make me laugh (though it's more of an inside joke).

Q17) Favorite actor?
Chris Evans. 

Q18) Favorite color?

Q19) Loud musics or soft?
Both. Not at the same time, but I can easily listen to Radioactive, by Imagine Dragons, right after having listened to something soft as The Saltwater Room, by Owl City.

Q20) Where do you go when you're sad?
My mind flees to San Francisco or Adelaide, sometimes to happy memories of junior year. 

Q21) How long does it take you to shower?
Depends. About ten minutes if it's just a shower, about 40 minutes if I have to wash my hair. It takes ages to wash it.

Q22) How long does is take you to get ready in the morning?
Fifteen minutes, including turning the radio on and eating breakfast.

Q23) Ever been in a physical fight?
More or less. Not proud of it though.

Q24) Turn on?
Bad jokes and puns. I'm serious :)

Q25) Turn off?
Gaming addictions

Q26) The reason you joined Blogger?
Wordpress made me panick and I had to blog somewhere to clear my mind.

Q27) Fears?
Sharks, dogs, people laughing at me.

Q28) The last thing that made you cry?
The idea of my parents, my friends and my own mortality.

Q29) Last time you said you loved someone?
I told my Mom I was proud of her and that I loved her when we reached the end of the Inka Trail. Three years ago she had a hernia. We were afraid she'd never walk for more than half an hour, but this summer she walked the Inka Trail. I think that's a beautiful achievement for someone who couldn't walk down stairs a few years ago.

Q30) Meaning behind your Blogger name?
Okay, I never told this to anyone before, but my real name is Anne. My last name starts with a V. You know how they want to ensure a criminal's anonimity by showing only the first letter of his last name? Anne V. Sounded a lot like Envy to me. That way my Blogger name was born.

Q31) Last book you read?
The House of Hades, by Rick Riordan.

Q32) The book you're currently reading?
Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, by Susanna Clarke.

Q33) The last show you watched?
Wicked Tuna.

Q34) The last person you talked to?
My Mom. She's still talking to me now.

Q35) The relationship between you and the last person you texted?
Rosanne is a good friend to me. I've known her for 7 years. She's actually more an older sister than a friend for me.

Q36) Favorite food?
Anything with meat will do, I'm not picky.

Q37) Place you want to visit?
Did a post on that here.

Q38) Last place you were?
Gérardmer in France.

Q39) Do you have a crush?
On Percy Jackson, but he's kinda fictional and kinda taken too...

Q40) Last time you kissed someone?
Never. Never been kissed, forever alone, that's me.

Q41) Last time you were insulted?
Yesterday. I tried to open a can of soup. I did not succeed. My Dad's comment: 'Good thing you're not moving out yet, you'd starve within weeks.' Gee, thanks Dad.

Q42) Favorite flavor of sweet?

Q43) What instruments do you play?
I don't want to brag, but I'm a pretty decent air saxophone player.

Q44) Favorite piece of jewelry?
I don't really wear jewelry, but I had this necklace with an ankh on it which I wore until it broke. I was so sad about it that E. fixed it with a shoelace.

Q45) Last sport you played?
Athletics of course.

Q46) Last song you sang?
Gangnam Style, which wasn't a succes, since I don't speak Korean -.-"

Q47) Favorite chat up?
I'm too shy for a chat up, but one time I was approached by a dude on a school dance and he said: 'I usually don't dance, but I'll make an exception for you.' Definitely a favorite :)

Q48) Have you ever used it?
If I ever feel like my confidence is high enough to cope with rejection and being laughed at, I'm definitely going to use it.

Q49) Last time you hung out with anyone?
Before I went to Peru, I went shopping with Rosanne.

Q50) Who should answer these questions next?
I think I'm going to let Karissa and Youngjoo answer all these questions. Have fun!

  1. I totally agree with answer 24, I adore all bad joke memes. They're just so ... punny.
    Number 30 just messed with my mind a little bit! :D

    1. There's something weirdly attractive to people who can't stop cracking terrible jokes, isn't there? I always say those jokes are stupid, but secretly I love them.
      As for number 30... It's just a great example of how my mind jumps from one thing to another. A lot of people don't really get it. Last time I explained it to one of my friends I had to write it out step by step before she got it :P

  2. Haha, Envy--I also had to do the same thing for "OTP." Unfortunately, I didn't have a reason aside from just being uncultured in this day's texting society. I enjoyed reading your answers to these questions. Even with little snippets your voice still comes through so clearly!

    1. Good to hear I'm not the only one, I felt like I'd been living under a rock because I didn't know what OTP meant. I guess we're that tiny part of the teenage population that writes everything the normal way in their texts. The only abreviation I ever use is OMG
      I'm glad you enjoyed reading my post. Your compliment made me really happy. I've been told I write with a claer voice, but full of sarcasm... I took it as a compliment, but the way you put it just made my day. I think it's one of the most important things for a writer to have a clear voice of their own in everything they write - I'm so glad you think I have such a voice :)

  3. "I like this band. That means they're my band. You can't listen to my band"
    LOL xD
    Good post Envy :)
    PS- sorry if this is annoying but I nominated you again xD

    1. Thank you :) And don't say sorry for nominating me for something! Being nominated is one of the best things that can happen to me as a blogger :)


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good! Wait, no, I mean: I solemnly swear that I will answer each and every comment ;)
