Eleven Random Facts

  1. I play guitar, but I can’t sing to save my life.
  2. I would love to become a vampire, but it’s not the immortality that’s attractive. It’s the darkness, the need of blood to stay alive.
  3. One of my favorite colors is teal.
  4. If I could, I would live only with sweatshirts. They are so comfy!
  5. I prefer the cold to the heat. Because sweatshirts! (And fires and hot chocolate…)
  6. One animal I associate myself to is a wolf. Both the lone wolf, rejected because it is different from others, and the pack wolf, protecting his own with his life.
  7. I hate school, I don’t learn well by sitting and listening to people talk all day. I’m more of a hands on person.
  8. I changed my actual name by one letter, not legally yet, but most people use it now. Just cause it sounds better.
  9. Tolkien is my idol and god. I worship his work and aspire to create something as great and complex someday.
  10. I am a bit of a pyromaniac. I love flames and fire, it’s pretty, but I am scared to get burned.
  11. I am currently obsessed with Pretty Little Liars. I’m actually starting to get paranoid, second-guessing everyone’s intentions.

My 11 Answers

  1. Where do you see yourself in 2 years?
    Well, that changes every day! Just recently, I have been accepted as a transfer student to one of the best universities in Canada. In two years, I could finish my undergraduate degree. I am also in the middle of interviews for different jobs, including one for Ubisoft. If I get the job, in two years, I could still be with the company and maybe have worked my way towards a management position.
  2. What got you into blogging?
    As mentioned in a previous post, I needed something to help me commit to write regularly. I’ve had these stories in my head for so long, it’s about time I wrote them down and tried to flesh them out a bit!
  3. What are your writing goals?
    I would love to finish a novel and get it published, but I guess my current goal is to just keep writing.
  4. Besides blogging, what do you do in your free time?
    I play guitar, I watch Netflix, I listen to music, I play to video games, I read, I hang out with family and friends… What ever I am in the mood for!
  5. How old are you?
    I am 25, almost 26!
  6. What is your favorite movie?
    I don’t have one favorite movie, but I like movies with multiple layers and depth, like Memento or Inception. I am not very difficult, though. As long as the story is good and the acting is decent, I will enjoy watching it 🙂
  7. Who or what motivates you in your life?
    I guess my motivation is to not fail at life? Live and enjoy every moment, really make the most of what I have, and not waste what I have been given, no matter how hard it can be sometimes.
  8. What is(are) your favorite thing(s) to blog/write about? And why?
    I really love fiction, in all forms. I write stories set in any universe, just gimme something to work with! My favorite genre would be fantasy, I suppose, but I like to develop characters and universes.
  9. What is your occupation?
    I am not really anything at the moment. I work administrative jobs, because I have the experience, I am good at it and it’s easy. I don’t know what I wanna be when I grow up, I’ll figure it out as I go!
  10. What is your biggest writing challenge?
    I think it would be putting ideas on paper. I’ve got tons of them, but I don’t always organize them or flesh them out. When it comes down to writing, I can have trouble if I haven’t thought everything through beforehand.
  11. What do you cherish most?
    I cherish life, in all it’s forms. It’s a gift and we should make the best out of it. Unfortunately, I believe most people just take it for granted.

My 11 Questions:

  1. What brought you into the blogging world?

  5. What is your biggest achievement?
  6. If you won an award, who would you thank?
  7. What would your perfect vacation be like?

  1. It’s nice to learn more about you! Vampires, wolves, starting fires… 🙂
    I like your answer to “What is your biggest writing challenge?” I’m exactly the same. I get so many ideas, never do anything with them and eventually forget them.
    Thanks for the nomination!
