Hello, lovely people of the blogosphere! We hit a hundred followers on this blog a few days ago and I asked you to send in your assumptions – let’s see what you got right about me!
YOU ARE A VERY DOWN TO EARTH PERSON
When I’m with my family? No. When I’m with anyone else? Yes.
YOU ARE AN INTROVERT
YOU ARE A HUFFLEPUFF
Again yes! I thought I’d get Ravenclaw when I took the quiz but when I got Hufflepuff I was like, yup, that’s me.
YOU ARE DEDICATED TO ANYTHING YOU DO
Ha, this really speaks to me. Either I give 200% attention, or none at all. Being a perfectionist sucks sometimes.
YOU ARE A VERY CREATIVE PERSON
I believe yes.
YOU WOULD RATHER BE OUTSIDE THAN INSIDE
Actually, no. I spend around 90% of my time indoors. Its a different story when I go on a trip to somewhere far. Then I’d rather be outside.
YOU’RE A BIT OF A DAYDREAMER
Not bit, a bit too much for it to be healthy lol😅
YOU’RE A REALLY NICE PERSON!
Aww, thanks💛 I guess I am nice, although I may come across as a bit standoffish because I am shy and I struggle to say the right thing in a conversation. Anyhow, I try quite a lot to be a nice person.
YOU LOVE TO DAYDREAM AND WILL EVEN DRIFT OFF AT SCHOOL, WHICH WILL SOMETIMES GET YOU INTO TROUBLE
Haha yes. This has happened to me multiple times, but I clearly remember one day my math teacher snapped her fingers in front of me and asked me, “Where were you Jan?” It was so embarassing. I tend to sit in the front row to stop this from happening but I drift off anyway.
YOU’VE NEVER TRAVELLED OUTSIDE OF SRI LANKA BEFORE, EXCEPT POSSIBLY TO INDIA. BUT YOU WOULD LOVE TO EXPLORE THE WORLD ONE DAY
I’ve never been to India either ;-( But that means I’ve been almost everywhere inside Sri Lanka. Yes I’d LOVE to.
YOU’RE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO LOVES TO DOODLE ABSENTMINDEDLY AND FIDDLE AROUND WITH STUFF WHILE YOU’RE CONCENTRATING ON SOMETHING
How do you know me so well?
YOU ARE A CAT PERSON
YOU ARE A MORNING PERSON
Again yes! I tend to grow sleepy around 10.00 at night and my day generally sucks and goes out of balance if I don’t wake early. Which is around 5.30 – 6.00. So yeah, morning person.
YOU LIKE TO BE OUTSIDE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE
Living in the biggest city in the country means that ‘outside’ is a tiny garden which is essentially a block of sand and a few plants around the edge and maybe one flower, so it isn’t much to look at, and I tend to stay indoors. When I was younger I used to live with a thick jungle to three sides of the house so naturally I was outdoors all day.
YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR IS YELLOW/ORANGE
Actually, it’s kind of a greyish pink/salmon pink, or turquoise/sea green.
YOU LOVE SWIMMING!
Lol I can’t swim to save my life. Does sitting at the edge of a swimming pool and dipping in my legs count? I’m terrible at all sports except maybe table tennis.
YOU LIKE CAMPING AND OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES
I’ve camped around four times back when I was a girl guide and it was fun, I’d definitely do it again. If outdoor activities mean anything like hiking, then a big yes!
YOU’RE A CAT LOVER!
YOU’RE AN INDIAN
Nope, Sri Lankan.
YOU LIKE SINGING, EVEN IF YOU’RE NOT THE BEST AT IT
I’m terrible at singing but that doesn’t stop me from breaking into song very out of pitch but who cares.
YOU LIKE RED
Yes? Idk It’s not my favourite colour but I’ve got nothing against it either.
YOU’RE AN AMBIVERT, BUT YOU LEAN A LITTLE A LITTLE MORE TO THE INTROVERTED SIDE.
No, total introvert am I.
YOU LOVE THE SEA!
Yes! Absolutely! Who doesn’t? Okay got a little excited there but I really love going to the sea!
YOU’RE AN ANIMAL LOVER
Yes. Not in the sense that I want to hug every cute kitty or puppy I see, but in the sense that I can admire them from far and help protect them. (why does this sound like something out of an unrequited love story?)
YOU’RE A VERY ORGANIZED PERSON
Most of the time, yes. Either that, or I have no organization. But that’s only a small percentage of the time.
Yes. Very much.
YOU’RE A FANTASY LOVER
YOU PREFER TV SHOWS OVER MOVIES.
Nope, movies over TV shows any day. I’ve never had a TV in my home and the only series I’ve watched are The Mandalorian and Avatar the Last Airbender (I loved both of them, but that’s a story for another day) and most of the shows they do show on my country’s TV networks are excruciatingly corny (in my honest, humble opinion) so yes, I prefer movies.
YOU WANT TO SEE MORE BOOKS WITH SCIENCE + MATH
Kinda yes. I want to see a book with a South Asian math nerd as the main character who struggles dealing with stereotypes about Asian nerds (because sometimes I feel like a walking talking stereotype). And yeah, I need books to realize that ‘pushing overbearing Asian parents’ is a lot more nuanced than it is because to be honest, when you live in a third world country, education is actually very important. Ooh and I love sci fi so definitely I’d love to see more diverse, sci fi books!
