palethroatsandcupidsbows asked me:
1. Would you consider yourself more introvert or extrovert?
I consider myself to be extrovertedly introvert, ha. I like people, I like talking to people, I like being around people, but I need so much time to recharge and deal with people. I can do small talk just fine, but I need alone time to gather myself up again.
2. What kind of sweets do you like?
I’m not a super huge fan of sweets, but I dig white chocolate covered pretzels. It’s still got that sweet thing going on, but it also has that salty bite afterward. And I much prefer crunchy things to mushy things, so.
The one exception to this is what I get my mom to make me for my birthday, which is something called eclair pie (it’s funny, because my first initial is ‘e’ and then my name is claire, ha). It’s basically graham crackers, vanilla pudding mixed with cool whip, and the best chocolate sauce/icing idk on top. I could eat a whole pan by myself and not feel bad about it.
3. How do you feel about climbing trees?
I generally don’t. I’m clutzy by nature and very suspicious of heights.
4. Do you collect/hoard anything?
Everything. I have a really hard time letting anything go. I like having thing, in general.But I’m also known around my college major group as having a thing for office supplies and organizational stuff. I’m not kidding, there are eight of us and they all know.
5. What’s your favorite season and why?
I’m particularly fond of summer, except when it rains all the time, like it’s doing right now.
6. Have you ever gone surfing?
No, I generally avoid the ocean in general. I don’t like water on my face, I don’t go past about five feet’s worth of deep. I can barely stand on my own on dry land and I get sea sick SO EASILY.
7. If you could turn back time, what would you change?
This is going to sound so cheesy, but probably nothing? Everything that I went through made me the person I am now and I know who this person is - this person is strong, this person survives, this person puts up with no bullshit.
8. Do you like hot chocolate with milk or water?
Well, I don’t like it with water, but I don’t drink milk from cows??? I don’t know, I don’t really drink hot chocolate.
9. What’s your favorite thing about yourself?
Physically, I think my legs are pretty awesome. They’re long and although my knees and hips aren’t super awesome, they’ve kept me up for twenty-four years. I like how they look in short dresses and shorts and jeans.
But I also like how strong I am. I’ve been through a lot of shit and lived to tell the tale, so that’s pretty awesome.
10. How often do you swear?
When I’m around kids or in professional settings, not at all. But barring those things, like an old drunken sailor. That’s how much. And then some. And then some more.
11. What do you like to do to de-stress?
I don’t know what this question means. De-stress? I’m always stressed. Ha, no. I like to read fic and play on my 3DS and I like to sleep. I like to take baths. Sometimes in the morning, I get a drink from either Starbucks or Sonic. I try to do one nice thing for myself every day and one really nice thing by myself every month.
