Your idea of happiness?

One of the best feelings in life is seeing somebody else happy because of you.

 

Your idea of misery?

I guess it is someone who suffers from so much pain, maybe a pain that’s kept inside her for quite a while already; or maybe longing for someone you can’t be with cause he’s too far away.

 

If not yourself, who would you be?

I’d be Beyoncé, who wouldn’t want to be her, right?

 

Your heroes?

What is your present state of mind?

I need to clean up my files and make a list of places to go for my 2015 adventures, find a cute disposable camera and finish the homework website catalog.

 

Bedside table books?

IT by Alexa Chung, How They Met and Other Stories by David Levithan, Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith and other fashion books.

 

What do you do if you can’t sleep at night?

Watch a movie or catch up on my favorite TV series. Sometimes I clean my room and bathroom or cry myself to sleep because of my fucked up body clock and insomnia. 

 

Do you collect anything?
