Not often.

I don’t think I have. I sometimes think about doing it though.

I honestly don’t remember.

Do you prefer drawing or painting? Any particular reason why?

I think I’m a better drawer than a painter so I’ll go with drawing for now.

If forced to go camping, would you rather sleep in a tent or a caravan?

Caravan, for sure!

Not often. I think I get envious of other people more than I get jealous of them. (Apparently there’s a difference.)

Do you prefer framed photos or just sticking photos straight onto walls?

Um, neither? I don’t think I will ever put photos up on my wall. Painting siguro, pwede pa.

Can you drive yet? How good are you at it?

Yea, I’ve been driving for a long time now. I’m okay at it. Not good, not bad. Just okay.

I don’t think so.

Name something you thought was cool when you were younger but don’t now.

When I was younger, I thought it was cool to be average. Not excellent, not perfect. Average. I didn’t want to be one of those kids who tried too hard to get good grades or who worked too hard to be the best at something. I thought being average was good enough, and I thought it was cool because being average — and being okay about being average — proved that you couldn’t care less about arbitrary standards.

I mean, I had a point, didn’t I? Hehe. I’m still okay about being average now, but I no longer think it’s necessarily “cool” to be one.

How long does it usually take you to get to sleep?

Depends how tired I am.

When did you last get a papercut?

I don’t remember.

Which do you prefer: blackboards or whiteboards?

I think whiteboards are cheaper?

What sort of things do you have bookmarked in your internet browser?

Mostly stories, poems, and links to articles and websites that I find interesting. The ones that are up on the shortcuts bar right now are for two short stories — “How to Become a Writer” by Lorrie Moore and “Girls, At Play” by Celeste Ng — and links to the Smithsonian Open Access and a random “sounds of forest” generator that I learned about through Ena.

Are / were you spoilt? Would others agree or disagree with you?

Nope. My parents are too poor and too busy to spoil any of us kids.

What are you wearing right now?

A sweater, a pair of shorts, a scarf.

What was the last book you read?

The last book was Tell the Machine Goodnight by Katie Williams, but I also just finished reading a collection of short stories written by a CW grad student for her thesis. Good shit, hehe.
