FTR I changed question 11 to Paris or Berlin (original said London) because I assume many of you already live in London or have been many times given that this is a mainly British forum lol.

1. What are your favorite things about yourself?
Probably my wit. I tend to be pretty funny when I'm relaxed and in my own, but maybe not so much if I'm nervous lol.

2. What is your all-time favorite town or city excluding your hometown? Why?
Interlaken in Switzerland. I went there for the first time in 2014 and absolutely fell in love with it. Such a beautiful picturesque town that is filled with all sorts of things to do ranging from hiking to parachuting or horse riding to river rafting. Just amazing and I have been there twice. Currently planning my third visit which I intend to stay a little longer than the other two times.

3. Who's your biggest role model?
I know it's cliché to choose your family but really they are all my role models in different ways. My brother is super creative and is following his dreams which I admire. My sister is spiritual and super in touch with her emotions which I aspire to be as well one day. My father is the smartest man I know with a knack for business and money that I can only hope to some day have, and my mother is my absolute biggest role model in so many ways, mainly for her drive and ability to overcome so many things. She's also so humble and doesn't know how great she really is.

4. What is your most used swear word?
f***ing. Lol. In Icelandic "fokking" is a weird way to emphasize on things to say that something is very something. Example "Ég er svo fokking svangur" means "I'm so f***ing hungry". It sounds much more aggressive in english but in Icelandic it really just means I'm very hungry.

5. What did you do for your last birthday?
I think I just spent it at work and then with my roommate and dog at home in the evening.

6. What is one thing (not a person) that gives you inspiration?
I get a lot of inspiration from nature which I thankfully get enough of in Iceland. There's something so calming about biking out a quiet and calm fjord to get the inspiration you need to do what you need to do.

7. What is your favorite ice-cream flavor?
Coconut. Easy.

8. Do you have a catchphrase?
No lol.

9. If you had 1 year left to live, what would you do to live it to the fullest?
I would probably quit my job, move back to my hometown and spend my days with my family, friends and my dog and try to make as many memories as I can with them before I go.

10. When was the first time you were on a plane and where did you fly to?
I don't know when exactly but the first plane trip I remember was in 1999 when I flew to Mallorca with my family for a very nice vacation in the sun.

11. If you could choose only one, would you rather go to Paris or Berlin? Why?
Berlin as I didn't really enjoy Paris so much last time I was there as opposed to Berlin. I do still wanna visit both again some day though for sure.

12. What is at the top of your bucket list?
Ugh hard question but I think right now it would probably have to be visiting one of the many places I have lined up. I have no idea what I want to visit the most but the top destinations for me are currently New Zealand, Singapore and Croatia.

13. Who is the artist you most want to see live but never have?
Florence + the Machine for sure. I almost saw her in 2015 but unforseen circumstances prevented that.

14. Would you rather have to change your clothes five times a day or wear the same outfit five days in a row?
Oh god both of these sound terrible in different ways but I would probably rather change clothes five times a day because I don't feel good when I wear dirty clothes and I'd probably get some sort of disease from wearing the same underwear for so long.

15. What is one random act of kindness you have performed recently?
Oh geez. Idk, probably tipping some server excessively when I was in LA because I have no idea how tipping works.

16. How many friends do you have on Facebook?
836, a number that's been relatively stagnant for about 3 or 4 years now lol.

17. What is your favorite fruit?
Hard to choose but right now I have a weird obsession with Avocados. Yes I know I'm weird. Watermelons are amazing too.

18. What is something you wish you were good at?
I aspire to be a great photographer so I think that's probably what I want to be better at.

19. How often do you skip breakfast?
Pretty much every day unfortunately. I usually don't have any appetite in the mornings.

20. When have you immediately click with someone you just met? Why? What was the long-term result?
Usually when I click with someone immediately it burns out at a similar pace but none that I have grown absolutely sick of. At least out of the ones where the friendship sprung up so quickly.

21. What's a weird hidden talent you can do?
I can move my ears without using my hands and it's super weird lmao.

22. What is the most boring movie you’ve watched recently?
Pitch Perfect 3 is the first movie that springs to mind as I started watching it on the flight from LA to Iceland and I made it through just about 15 minutes before giving up. Sad moment since PP1 was a 10/10 movie.

23. Do you prefer kissing or cuddling?
Kissing by far. Not a big cuddler honestly, or at least not when trying to sleep lol.

24. What is your favorite form of exercise?
Swimming is my favorite because you can't feel the sweat while swimming.

25. What is your first name? Does it mean anything?
Jafet - it's supposedly from the bible as one of Noah's sons was named Yapheth. Funny though since my parents are atheists, they just liked the name.

26. What is the best book you have ever read?
World War Z. The only book I've ever revisited. So good! Wish there was a sequel and wish the movie never happened and we got a documentary style TV show instead.

27. Do you drink alcohol? If so, what is your favorite alcoholic drink?
Yes I do but not excessively. My fav drink is probably an icelandic cocktail shot called "fullnæging" (english: orgasm) - Peppermint liquor and Bailey's.

28. What did you dress up as on Halloween last year?
I was Georgie, the kid from IT. Yellow raincoat, black rainboots and a red balloon. A lot of people were the same downtown but most I saw were girls so I'd like to think I wore it best lmao.

29. Would you rather your best friends were brutally honest with you or lie if the truth hurts your feelings?
Ah this is a tough one because I want them to maybe read the situation themselves. If it's something that I don't benefit from hearing (eg. something I can't change about myself) I'd probably prefer they don't let me know, but if it's something like a spouse cheating or that I'm wasting my life away or something I'd want them to let me know.

30. What is something about yourself that you hope will change, but probably never will?
I really want to stop being such a picky eater but I don't have much hope that will stop at this point because I really cannot understand how people can eat some foods (fish for example).

1. What are your favorite things about yourself?
I like that I am optimistic, kind-hearted and enthusiastic. I'd really hate to lose any of these qualities so I hope they can stay with me for as long as possible.

2. What is your all-time favorite town or city excluding your hometown? Why?
I am not particularly well-travelled so I don't have a lot of options here that I have actually experienced. I'll go for Vilagarcía de Arousa in Galicia, Spain. I went on holiday there for about 12 years in a row so I have plenty of fond memories. heart.gif The very pretty Reykjavík is my top city to visit though.

3. Who's your biggest role model?
I would go down a similar route to Jafet and say my parents. I have always looked up to them and wished that I could be more like them. My dad is very confident, seems to be good at almost anything and always knows what to say. Then my mum is a sweetheart and very sociable. They've both worked very hard to get to where they are and have a lot of love to give. I see some of myself in both of them but wish I had more of their qualities. My brother adopted the social / confidence side but that didn't quite extend to me laugh.gif

4. What is your most used swear word?
Probably something really minor like 'crap' because I don't swear very often lol

5. What did you do for your last birthday?
I went to my favourite Chinese restaurant The Mandarin for my 20th, with my family and Bray! It is a delicious 'all you can eat' place.

6. What is one thing (not a person) that gives you inspiration?
Writing for sure. I love to write lists and also consult my study planner for productive things. Writing helps to set me up well for the day.

7. What is your favourite ice-cream flavour?
Vanilla blush.gif that is such a bland choice but I do like to decorate plain ice-cream with other elements like sauce and sprinkles.

8. Do you have a catchphrase?
Yes. 'Slay my hole' and variants thereof like 'slay the entire circumference of my hole'.

9. If you had 1 year left to live, what would you do to live it to the fullest?
I would try and make as many wonderful memories with my loved ones as possible that they could treasure. I guess I would want this to involve travelling to some places that I've never been to before but have always wanted to go to.

10. When was the first time you were on a plane and where did you fly to?
I think I would have been about 4 when I travelled by plane for the first time. A family holiday to Spain of course.

11. If you could choose only one, would you rather go to Paris or Berlin? Why?
Berlin I think. My parents went to Paris a few years ago and weren't overly impressed. Berlin seems like a pretty nice place.

12. What is at the top of your bucket list?
Visiting the beautiful country Iceland!

13. Who is the artist you most want to see live but never have?
Lady Gaga, out of realistic options. I can't exactly see The Beatles live and Oasis would be quite unlikely laugh.gif it feels weird that I've loved Gaga for nearly 10 years but have still never been to one of her concerts before.

14. Would you rather have to change your clothes five times a day or wear the same outfit five days in a row?
Change my clothes five times a day! That's not too bad and much preferable to how unhygienic the second option would be.

15. What is one random act of kindness you have performed recently?
My brother owed me £13 but only had £12 on him so I said he could keep the extra pound, sister goals xo

16. How many friends do you have on Facebook?
1011 laugh.gif I should probably have a clear out one of these days but I never get round to it.

17. What is your favorite fruit?
Apples ftw

18. What is something you wish you were good at?
Eating healthily. Perhaps inspired by the last question laugh.gif but yeah my diet is absolutely loaded with junk, oops

19. How often do you skip breakfast?
More often than not as I either don't have time or just fancy hanging on until lunch. I did have breakfast yesterday though! Toast with marmite *.*

20. When have you immediately clicked with someone you just met? Why? What was the long-term result?
Me and Bray clicked so quickly when we met in person. The first few minutes were really overwhelming so it was hard to get any words out at first, but we slowly started talking and by the end of the night things just felt so right. Still going strong almost 2 and a half years later of course. But I guess this is kind of cheating as we already knew each other online before kink.gif but hey it was the first time we met in person so!! If I were to choose someone who I'd never spoken to before at all, it would be a girl called Ayesha who I used to work with at HMV. We were both 17, started at the same time and got on so well immediately. I haven't seen her in a while but still have her number / on social media.

21. What's a weird hidden talent you can do?
I have weird bendy talents thanks to my years as a gymnast. I can manoeuvre my legs into strange positions for example.

22. What is the most boring movie you’ve watched recently?
Errr I enjoyed 'The Post' on the whole but the start was admittedly very slow.

23. Do you prefer kissing or cuddling?
Omg this is such a difficult question drama.gif I love both of them a lot and am finding it really hard to choose. Hmm. I'll do a Maurice and say both kink.gif Spooning ftw

24. What is your favorite form of exercise?
Probably running on the treadmill. It can be quite fun when accompanied with music.

25. What is your first name? Does it mean anything?
Jerrrrd My first name is Jade shockingly enough kink.gif I am a semi-precious gemstone. It is derived from the Spanish "piedra de la ijada" happy.gif

26. What is the best book you have ever read?
Harper Lee - 'To Kill A Mockingbird'.

27. Do you drink alcohol? If so, what is your favorite alcoholic drink?
I do not drink alcohol ;o so I have nothing interesting for this one soz x

28. What did you dress up as on Halloween last year?
I dressed up as a black cat for a Halloween party that I went to *.*

29. Would you rather your best friends were brutally honest with you or lie if the truth hurts your feelings?
Honest with me for sure! I am a sensitive soul but I would much rather be told the truth. It hurts more to be lied to.

30. What is something about yourself that you hope will change, but probably never will?
How much of a fussy eater I am. I think I have made small amounts of progress in the past few years but I can never see myself making huge leaps unfortunately.

Does Anglesey count? If so then most definitely there - been going there since I was a child wub.gif

Lukas Graham, obviously kink.gif

14. Would you rather have to change your clothes five times a day or wear the same outfit five days in a row?
Wear the same outfit five days in a row - I'm sure some of my friends do sick2.gif

Lie in bed awake for hours for no apparent reason magic.gif I can name nearly all the flags of the world as well if that counts!

Spirited Away comes to mind, but even that was a very good film - I don't tend to watch something if I think it'll be boring

Dark Fruits at the moment (being only 18), I'm siure that'll change somewhere along the line though

28. What did you dress up as on Halloween last year?
I don't celebrate Halloween - we had a 'light party' for the kids at Church but I didn't dress up.

29. Would you rather your best friends were brutally honest with you or lie if the truth hurts your feelings?
I'd rather they be honest - I spent most of last year in a friend group I thought I was a part of before they turned around and said I was an 'unwanted extra'. I'd rather that not happen again.

Like before, my confidence in social situations - I'd love to be able to just talk about anything!

I'll attempt this. It sounds weird but I wanna do my list before I read anyone else's so I won't be potentially influenced by anything anyone else has written laugh.gif



1. What are your favorite things about yourself?
I think I will always be an open-minded person and this is something I really value in myself and others. I also consider myself kind, accepting, creative and having a sense of humour, and these things (among other things) help balance out my otherwise messy personality lmao.

2. What is your all-time favorite town or city excluding your hometown? Why?
Okay I'm actually gonna go for a little Irish island here called Inisheer which I went to last summer by myself and loved it so I'll probably go again this summer. It was partly the amazing weather I got for all of the three or so days I was there, but I just felt such joy and tranquility being there and it came at a much-needed time. Limestone walls ftw x

3. Who's your biggest role model?
My ideal self.

4. What is your most used swear word?
I do say 'shit' a lot when something annoying happens or I drop something. #basic

5. What did you do for your last birthday?
okay so I spent most of the day on my own (in real life), apart from the morning. I made myself a nice meal I had never attempted to cook before, and came 5th in the Buzzjack Song Contest. I guess those two things helped make up slightly for my low mood in the morning / afternoon. Every little helps ~

6. What is one thing (not a person) that gives you inspiration?
errrr... Emotions? Music? Peace? Sunshine?

7. What is your favorite ice-cream flavor?
I am so not picky.

8. Do you have a catchphrase?
No. (That is not my catchphrase, I just don't have one xxx)

9. If you had 1 year left to live, what would you do to live it to the fullest?
Travel more and meet more people.

10. When was the first time you were on a plane and where did you fly to?
I was visiting Ireland (before I moved here) and first my family and I took a plane to Helsinki from Tallinn, a flight which lasted only 20 minutes or so. I enjoyed the experience.

11. If you could choose only one, would you rather go to Paris or Berlin? Why?
Paris to see what the fuss is about. I'm joking haha, altho yea, Paris. happy.gif

12. What is at the top of your bucket list?
To make a bucket list.

13. Who is the artist you most want to see live but never have?
Björk!!! omg and I was so close to getting tickets this year for a place in Cornwall but missed out </3 I might try again next tour, her gigs seem like such wondrous experiences.

14. Would you rather have to change your clothes five times a day or wear the same outfit five days in a row?
err what a question! Probably the second option? ph34r.gif

15. What is one random act of kindness you have performed recently?
I made an affirmation to myself, that counts as being kind to yourself, right. angel.gif In terms of others, I was a good listener to someone recently.

16. How many friends do you have on Facebook?
224

17. What is your favorite fruit?
Bananas! I love all fruit though.

18. What is something you wish you were good at?
Forming connections with people really quickly in real life.

19. How often do you skip breakfast?
Never actually ;o I always try to have a good breakfast these days.

20. When have you immediately click with someone you just met? Why? What was the long-term result?
I've met up with some people from apps, two times in particular were instant click <3 I think this method of meeting people suits me as it's one-to-one and rather chilled. Also the fact that we had already talked online first really helped in terms of getting to know one another. The long-term result for one was that I dated the person for a bit, and I got into a relationship with the other (which is no longer the case).

21. What's a weird hidden talent you can do?
I suppose I can sort of dislocate my left thumb. You might have to see it to understand.

22. What is the most boring movie you’ve watched recently?
I can't remember what it was called! I went to the cinema to watch it a few months ago and it was quite boring...

23. Do you prefer kissing or cuddling?
Cuddling!

24. What is your favorite form of exercise?
Swimming!

25. What is your first name? Does it mean anything?
Mattias means "gift from God" and it also has other meanings.

26. What is the best book you have ever read?
I tend to enjoy most books I read but I never really develop absolute favourites among them. I did super enjoy The Diary of Anne Frank!

27. Do you drink alcohol? If so, what is your favorite alcoholic drink?
I do. Some kinda fruit cider is what I usually go for as I'm pretty basic when it comes to drinks tbh, I haven't had enough opportunities for wild nights with friends and stuff sad.gif

28. What did you dress up as on Halloween last year?
pfft, I don't dress up :3 I did once as a kid, it was some really random and weird costume, I basically had a black bag over my head or something, I can't remember exactly.

29. Would you rather your best friends were brutally honest with you or lie if the truth hurts your feelings?
Depends on the issue but I mean with the way this question is worded, usually I'd prefer the first option! I don't like it when people throw out their brutal honesty at any given opportunity, but I also don't like the idea of someone just lying to me about something. I would say I am a very honest person, but I'm also a very nice person, haha. There's a balance that can be achieved.

30. What is something about yourself that you hope will change, but probably never will?
ooooh what a question! *thinks* I suppose physically, I'd love to be able to not wear glasses anymore, but I have tried contacts (once) and it was just an awful experience tbh so I didn't even go back for a second try when I was invited to. I also can't see myself ever getting the surgery.

I know it's Saturday now but I didn't get a chance to do this yesterday so tongue.gif

2. What is your all-time favorite town or city excluding your hometown? Why?
The city where my brother lives, it's sooo small but really charming and the people are nice and friendly. It feels like a second home after visiting so many times.

4. What is your most used swear word?

Moose tracks

Nope

9. If you had 1 year left to live, what would you do to live it to the fullest?

10. When was the first time you were on a plane and where did you fly to?
I think I was 7 and flew with my family to Florida.

11. If you could choose only one, would you rather go to Paris or Berlin? Why?
Tough choice! I might prefer German food so maybe Berlin.

12. What is at the top of your bucket list?
Getting a tattoo!

13. Who is the artist you most want to see live but never have?
Little Big Town would absolutely slay, hearing those harmonies in person wub.gif

104. I'm very exclusive.

20. When have you immediately click with someone you just met? Why? What was the long-term result?
Well I immediately clicked with Noahspike on here about 4 years ago, we're just on a similar wavelength as we like to say and we immediately clicked meeting in real life too!

21. What's a weird hidden talent you can do?
Name a song just from hearing the first 2-3 seconds of it.

22. What is the most boring movie you’ve watched recently?
Murder On The Orient Express

23. Do you prefer kissing or cuddling?
I don't really do either one [/foreveralone] but cuddling I guess, I've become more of a hugger anyway.

24. What is your favorite form of exercise?
Riding my bike, it used to be running but you can go so much farther on a bike, it's less impact on your joints and it's fine on a hot day because there's always a breeze. I would like swimming more but I'm just not that good of a swimmer.

25. What is your first name? Does it mean anything?
Jordan, and it means descending (ironically the opposite of my username laugh.gif)

26. What is the best book you have ever read?
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (I'm just picking one, I don't read much)

Being too concerned about what everyone thinks of me

1. What are your favorite things about yourself?
Patience, hair, music taste (lmao)

2. What is your all-time favorite town or city excluding your hometown? Why?
Whilst I don't live in London (I'm just outside), I'm gonna exclude it cause I go there so often :') I love Cardiff though, I've visited a couple of times mainly for the now-closed Doctor Who Experience but it's a really nice city and I loved browsing the shops too.

Harry Styles

4. What is your most used swear word?
I think I use a range of them laugh.gif shit is probably my most common

Paris always seems like quite a nice place, I think my sister enjoyed going there before. Don't really know much about Berlin!

A tough one - I mean the only thing I can particularly think of is that I would absolutely love to meet Harry Styles one day. Even for a few seconds.

13. Who is the artist you most want to see live but never have?
Possibly Ulrik Munther - he's barely known outside of Sweden (and even in Sweden it's questionable these days x) so the chances of him performing in the UK are very very slim.

14. Would you rather have to change your clothes five times a day or wear the same outfit five days in a row?
I'd rather the same outfit five days in a row - less effort and I already wear the same jeans for a week or two lol

Anything I do for you lot on Bzuzzjack x I guess I paid for a cuppa for my sister and cousin at the garden centre the other day - it was originally gonna be me and mum only and I was going to pay, but they tagged along too and my mum said she would pay for them.

It depends how we define breakfast - I tend to have something each morning but nothing more than a banana or a couple of oranges!

20. When have you immediately click with someone you just met? Why? What was the long-term result?
Wow this is a tough one. My two besties in real life weren't people I was joined at the hip to from the very start. I guess Jáhq on here when we started talking one-to-one! We were in a ~4.5 year relationship and are still best friends today.

21. What's a weird hidden talent you can do?
I can get the insides of my elbows to touch as I'm double jointed :')

I don't really watch many films! (ie. I've literally seen two this year)

Cuddling I guess

None of it Walking! Not just a 5 minute walk to the shop but I walk 30 mins to and from work each day.

Joseph (shocker x) - means "shall increase/add" in Hebrew. Sounds like what's happening to my hair basil.gif

26. What is the best book you have ever read?
I'm not much of a reader these days but I loved the Faraway Tree books as a kid!

28. What did you dress up as on Halloween last year?
I'm scary enough already x (I didn't dress up)

29. Would you rather your best friends were brutally honest with you or lie if the truth hurts your feelings?
Brutally honest - it might not feel as pleasant but it's for the best

30. What is something about yourself that you hope will change, but probably never will?
I'm not sure if this is a *hope* as such, but my dad was ginger when he was younger but by his early 20s his hair was much darker. I expected mine to do that too as my eyebrows are brown but there's no real sign of it :') I'm cool with being ginger tho ~

Okay, this sounds fun, let's give it a spin.

1. What are your favorite things about yourself?
My mental strength, I guess. I'm a tough cookie.

2. What is your all-time favorite town or city excluding your hometown? Why?
Well I couldn't stand my hometown so that's out right away. I quite like Dublin, Glasgow, Paris. I haven't travelled a whole lot so I don't have many to compare to.

3. Who's your biggest role model?
Tricky, probably a fictional character. I might need to think about this. For real people, probably somebody like Pink, I would be exactly that kind of parent.

4. What is your most used swear word?
f**king (can I type swear words on here?) or shite, I say both of those multiple times daily at least

5. What did you do for your last birthday?
I don't think I did much! I believe I took the day off work and relaxed!

6. What is one thing (not a person) that gives you inspiration?
One thing, that's interesting, like an activity? I like drawing, that helps me get my thoughts clear, also making lists which might be a little odd?

7. What is your favorite ice-cream flavor?
Dark chocolate, which I haven't found for a while, or coffee, or coconut. The kind of icecream you can only get in France really.

8. Do you have a catchphrase?
'What are you like?' probably, I say that all the time. Or 'nooooo' when shocked

9. If you had 1 year left to live, what would you do to live it to the fullest?
What a horrible thought! Blow all my money and probably lots of less than legal things <_>

10. When was the first time you were on a plane and where did you fly to?
I think to an island, one of the islands off the coast of Ireland or the UK. I would've been a baby or very wee child

11. If you could choose only one, would you rather go to Paris or Berlin? Why?
That's tough! Berlin perhaps because I've already been to Paris.

12. What is at the top of your bucket list?
I would like to publish a book or get a postgrad degree, both are pretty tricky though! I've already done a lot of things #wildlife

13. Who is the artist you most want to see live but never have?
Jhene Aiko perhaps

14. Would you rather have to change your clothes five times a day or wear the same outfit five days in a row?
The latter probably, I just think why would I be having to change 5 times a day, what would I be doing to ruin my clothes? ohmy.gif

15. What is one random act of kindness you have performed recently?
I had a long mental health chat with my friend when tipsy

16. How many friends do you have on Facebook?
300ish, I clear out frequently

17. What is your favorite fruit?
Mango perhaps, I love tropical fruit

18. What is something you wish you were good at?
Playing musical instruments, but I haven't the co-ordination

19. How often do you skip breakfast?
Not so often tbh, not that I eat much at all mind for any meal

20. When have you immediately click with someone you just met? Why? What was the long-term result?
A few times actually. Generally we stay friends. Although I also do have good friends who I've HATED at first, so I don't always trust my first impression

21. What's a weird hidden talent you can do?
I'm a fair cook

22. What is the most boring movie you’ve watched recently?
Not recently, but a movie at Christmas or a Christmas ago with my folks about a plane that crashed into a river...so LONG

23. Do you prefer kissing or cuddling?
Kissing perhaps. Body contact you have to work up to :/ #issues

24. What is your favorite form of exercise?
Exercise bike or weights

25. What is your first name? Does it mean anything?
I don't reveal that as I don't use it tongue.gif but no as well. Actually it has multiple meanings and roots in multiple languages, which is a little cool, but I don't even use it for myself, so kinda irrelevant.

26. What is the best book you have ever read?
Another difficult question. Probably something like Gender Trouble was the most informative book I've ever read.

27. Do you drink alcohol? If so, what is your favorite alcoholic drink?
I have a sweet tooth, so, alcoholic milkshake. Alternatively, a strawberry or banana white russian <3

28. What did you dress up as on Halloween last year?
I didn't dress up last Halloween, I think the last one I did properly I did a half skull face which was fun

29. Would you rather your best friends were brutally honest with you or lie if the truth hurts your feelings?
A bit of both I think! Depends on the topic. I am the brutally honest friend though, but only in a best interest kind of way.

30. What is something about yourself that you hope will change, but probably never will?
I'm not sure there's anything I have that fits that description! I'm quite good at following through on changes I want to make. I would love if my metabolism improved I suppose because that would make other things easier, but that feels a little unlikely because it's genetic!

1. What are your favorite things about yourself?
My patience, my humour and my ability to remember tons of little details here and there

2. What is your all-time favorite town or city excluding your hometown? Why?
Exeter, as I spent 4 years living there and loved how much there was to do without feeling overwhelming (as a country boy I'm pretty easily pleased if a city is clean and friendly but I wouldn't mind living there again at some point in the future).

3. Who's your biggest role model?
There are plenty of academics, authors and fictional characters who display aspects of my ideal but I couldn't choose one in particular.

4. What is your most used swear word?
I regularly take the Lord's name in vain (so an 'Oh God') for most of it. Shit only really under my breath, bloody if I'm feeling particularly English that day.

5. What did you do for your last birthday?
Had a cake celebration (that I wasn't expecting <3) in my Indian house that devolved into a cake fight between my volunteer group. Was really fun.

6. What is one thing (not a person) that gives you inspiration?
Expansive vistas with beautiful skies, painted, drawn or in reality. Also a good bit of reading.

7. What is your favorite ice-cream flavor?
Strawberry

8. Do you have a catchphrase?
omae wa mou shindeiru

9. If you had 1 year left to live, what would you do to live it to the fullest?
I would travel to the place I most want to go that I hadn't been to yet, then backpack home, getting as many new experiences in as I could before the end

10. When was the first time you were on a plane and where did you fly to?
Portugal, to the Algarve, in 2001 I think? There was also our skiing holiday in France in 98 but I can't recall whether we took the plane that time, as I wasn't even 5 yet (so it was less of a skiing holiday and more of a falling over in the snow holiday for me). Probably did.

11. If you could choose only one, would you rather go to Paris or Berlin? Why?
Berlin, all that modern architecture and great feel, I think would fit me much better than Paris. Also Germany, as the land of my partial descent >>>

12. What is at the top of your bucket list?
Going to Japan, finding a great view in the mountains above a city, and listen to the ciccadas chirp. Also I'd love to be there for 2020.

13. Who is the artist you most want to see live but never have?
Nightwish! They only come to the UK once every few years and I've never found it convenient or got tickets. Must see them before Tuomas closes the project up.

14. Would you rather have to change your clothes five times a day or wear the same outfit five days in a row?
The former, there are some days that I do change like 3 times, and it feels so fresh. As long as the clothes are in easy to find places, I change very quickly.

15. What is one random act of kindness you have performed recently?
Volunteered at a foodbank a week ago, helping out people in a tough spot. I was just moving the food to their cars or other transport but it was really eye-opening getting into the process.

16. How many friends do you have on Facebook?
394, I had no idea I'd gotten so many.

17. What is your favorite fruit?
Raspberries, or any berries really.

18. What is something you wish you were good at?
Computer programming (and by extension learning languages more generally, I have trouble remembering words not in English), I'm really interested in how programs work and all the little intricacies, I'd love to be able to be a computer genius enough to create my own games or something, rather than just being mildly competent at Excel.

19. How often do you skip breakfast?
Rarely, even when I'm up out the door early for work I find time to have a little something.

20. When have you immediately click with someone you just met? Why? What was the long-term result?
I don't actually tend to click with people, I'm more of a slow grower of a person both with myself and with me to others. It gets better as it goes

21. What's a weird hidden talent you can do?
Hidden talent, I guess my chess ability, or maybe more relevantly my experimental cooking attempts that turn out well most of the time

22. What is the most boring movie you’ve watched recently?
I can't remember what movies I've watched recently, very few, certainly none that I'd describe as boring. If I were finding it boring, by the 30-40 minute mark I'd be cutting my losses and finding something I actually wanted to watch.

23. Do you prefer kissing or cuddling?
Cuddling, I'm a very touchy-feely sort of person, I love it.

24. What is your favorite form of exercise?
Cycling, because it's just the best, very easy to get into and keep doing, as I speed across roads probably annoying both cars and pedestrians at the same time.

25. What is your first name? Does it mean anything?
Isaac, it means 'laughter', it means that I'm a hilariously funny guy (I do try my best, mainly just clean humour though, the other type isn't my style)

26. What is the best book you have ever read?
aah, I guess, Lord Of The Rings, in terms of shaping my preferences, but I think more recently A Storm Of Swords was an utter triumph of fantasy.

27. Do you drink alcohol? If so, what is your favorite alcoholic drink?
Yes, mostly cider, I would say... Kopparberg? Probably Kopparberg.

28. What did you dress up as on Halloween last year?
Didn't dress up, because India doesn't really do Halloween, but me and my team used our internet allowances to download and watch some horror movie off of Netflix... on the roof of my home.

29. Would you rather your best friends were brutally honest with you or lie if the truth hurts your feelings?
The latter so they can work their way around to addressing the issue tactfully. There's normally a better way to word anything and I'm hanging out with friends to have a good time, not a poor time.

30. What is something about yourself that you hope will change, but probably never will?
My procrastination
