Vogue Parody 73 Questions Challenge
1.What’s your usual Starbuck’s order?
I don’t usually go to Starbucks, as I have a coffee brewer at home, but I am a big fan of their matcha green tea frappuccino.
2. What does your workstation look like?
Fairly neat. I work on a small foldable table so it looks pretty crowded but I just have my laptop on it, an electric kettle, a little basket (holds my car keys, lip balms, phone charger, wallet, earbuds, and a few napkins I get when I go out to eat), and usually my mug!
3. Favourite food?
I think it’s a tie between sushi or ramen… and NOT the instant noodle ramen (no offense Nissin, I still love you).
4. Favourite author?
Ahh.. I do not have one! There are so many great authors with different writing styles.
5. What do you think of open relationships?
I’m not into it and I only want my boyfriend to myself haha.
6. What is your favourite video game?
There’s so many video games I like, honestly! I love playing Sims 4 and MapleStory on PC, and LittleBigPlanet and Tekken on my PS3. Overcooked is slowly creeping up as my fave PS4 game so far.
7. Guilty pleasure treat?
… I treat myself to guilty pleasure treats all the time so I feel no guilt anymore LOL. I love cheesecake and tiramisu cake!
8. Favourite movie?
9. Favourite book?
I don’t have one – just like the favorite author question, I’ve read so many awesome books that I can’t choose between them all!
10. Twitter or Instagram?
11. Desktop or laptop?
Laptop, for portability.
12. Best advice you’ve ever received?
Take chances, believe in yourself, and give credit to yourself where it’s due. I feel it’s often so hard to do the third because of Impostor Syndrome and just trying to be humble … but we have to try to constantly adjust our thinking and accept that we do have some amazing talents and abilities!
13. What project are you working on right now?
I’m working on an art project for a friend! If you follow my art Instagram account, you’ll see it in your feed the near future, as it’s almost done. My art IG account is @geraldinedraws, by the way!
14. Favourite colour?
I love neutral colors. Other than that, my favorite color is blue!
15. Did you get good grades in school?
Yes, I was an overachiever and was Valedictorian in high school.
16. Dream job?
My dream job would be sampling all the amazing cuisines all over the world! Not scorpions, spiders, rats, dogs, cats though, I have certain standards!
17. Play any sports?
I used to, but I am actually not much of a sports person. I used to play Tennis in high school. If my high school had a swim team, I probably would’ve been in it too.
18. Do you have a degree?
Even though I spent a total of four years in several colleges, I only have an Associate’s degree in Dental Hygiene.
20. What is your favourite kind of blog post?

Bath and Body Works lotion and body sprays!

26. Sorting house?
You’re gonna hate me (maybe, I hope not) but I’ve only watched like the first one or two Harry Potter movies and never read any of the books … 🙈 I know, I need to add it to my to-do list!
27. How many tattoos do you have?

He is an asthmatic, and he always complains about his scapula. I don’t complain about my scapula specifically, but I complain about my back all the time. I’m also an asthmatic!

Yes! For better or for worse, they spice up my life.

49. What has a guy said or done to impress you?
The only guy that has ever impressed me is my first and current boyfriend, Victor. He’s said a lot of things that was honestly super sweet and romantic and I don’t want to flood this post with the things he said, but basically the things he said were very straight forward, not vague, and just really romantic. Below is a direct copy + paste of one of our conversations and this took place when I was stressing out due to a certain life situation and this is what he said to me.
I’m not a perfect person. I struggle with lots of things.
But you are very important to me
If I didn’t have you, I would still be thinking of dying everyday until I actually did it
You breathed life into me, and I want nothing but the best for you
And for us too grow old together
And be together for eternity
You could probably do without me
But I cannot live without you
And I don’t expect you to be perfect and faultless
And I don’t resent you for it
I love you as you are
I feel happy if you are
I feel sad if you’re sad or stressed
I’ll be with you every step of the way
I’ll always support you as best as I can
50. Best thing to do on a first date?
Go out to dinner or making something together for dinner! And getting to know each other obviously.
51. Worst thing to do on a first date?
Bad manners or being super aggressive
52. What’s the best pick up line?
I can’t think of any, I only know of corny ones haha!

Captain underpants. HAHA I’m sure I can come up with a better answer but that’s the first thing that popped up in my head!
54. Name three things which can always be found in your purse.
Hand sanitizer, my wallet, hand lotion.
55. Favourite drink?
56. If you could play a historical character in a movie who would it be?
This question was really hard for me to answer because 1) I don’t really watch a lot of movies and 2) I don’t really watch historical movies. All I can think of is being Ip Man, because it would be cool to be an awesome kung-fu master who has many disciples in my practice! If you’re wondering why I know this, it’s because my Uncle watches a lot of kung fu movies in the living room.
57. Kittens or puppies?
Darn it I love both! I’ll have to say puppies just for the sake of this question.
58. Favourite sushi roll?
It’s called the Transformer Roll in my local sushi joint. It’s “Spicy scallop, crabstick, and masago on the inside. Topped with salmon, eel, and multi-color tobiko. Grilled with eel sauce and spicy sauce.” YUM!
