I saw one of those good ol' question posts on Tumblr called "65 Questions You Aren't Used To". I'm not always a big fan of these kind of things, but this one seemed quite cool and I fancied writing something on this train journey, so here we go!
My existence is pretty much constantly flipping between this and a state of sonder, and I'm okay with that.
Depends almost entirely on whether I'm having a good day or not, but I used to be absolutely terrified.
A time-travelling me from the future. I can't imagine it being especially good news.
It changes on a frequent basis, but one I love and feel is consistently underutilised is overmorrow which means "the day after tomorrow".
"When was the last time you shaved?"
I'm wearing my blue t-shirt from the 2016 British Quidditch Cup and a check shirt over the top. On my way to Sam's 18th birthday!
Mathematician, Writer, Gamer & Computer Type. Not necessarily in that order.
Bright every time.
Out with two veterans from a society I've just been elected onto the committee of, gleaming some advice for the coming year and generally having a great time. Plus cocktails!
Twenty: it's the age that brought me back to Manchester, discovering Quidditch, joining CAOS, and a return to great health.
My dad, when I told him I'd be coming home for the weekend.
Lemmiah, a girl who was in my classes from Y7 to Y11. While a lot of people contributed, she played a big part in ensuring life was very uncomfortable during that time.
I like alot of people.
Isn't this button just a UCAV?
I probably wouldn't punch anyone in the face, but someone I find infuriating instead: I had an ICT teacher who managed to lose my (and several other students) entire coursework for the subject twice, and refused to admit any blame. He then came over on results day and said he was disappointed with my results.
I'd have Kim Jong-un install a free, open democracy in North Korea.
I'm proud of the fact I've never had to have a filling.
I'll take this opportunity to say how poorly the education system is for teaching people about sex and gender.
For a while I could write and read Elian, though I'm a bit rusty these days.
I have a fear of chains, which is apparently called alysidophobia.
As a child I lived this question. Every day for school backed lunch I'd have Marmite sandwiches. Now I'd probably go with the ham, bacon, and stuffing one Tesco do.
If I had to spend it, I'd probably be a bluetooth speaker system and bluetooth webcam. I'm in the process of switching as many of my computer components as possible to wireless and those are the next two on my list.
I'd love to visit Amsterdam.
I tried to find the most expensive alcohol which wasn't just expensive because of the bottle. It seems to be Dalmore 62 which goes for £125,000 per bottle. Apparently whisky is something people invest in now?
Education, healthcare, housing, public utilities, and legal aid must all be afforded freely to all citizens. No entity (governmental or private) may ever charge for these services.
A cuddly toy dog called Rufus which I've had for most of my life.
If we're talking about erasing the memory of experience, then I'll say that from first hand experience memory loss isn't as pleasant as it might seem. If we're talking about erasing the experience itself then probably just all of Y7.
I've heard good things about Canada and I've also got a bit of a thing for Scotland.
If films, TV, and books have taught me anything this is a terrible idea.
I had a wonderful nightmare about being chased through a collapsing building just last night!
Why yes, I am a good [insert anything you'd like here]!
I had a bad fall during freshers week of my second first year. Split my head open and had to spend the night in hospital.
Yeah, snowmen are great!
Blue with orange accent.
Sunsets! So many pretty colours, and usually at a much more reasonable time.
Not a big milkshake fan.
Sheffield United through inheritance.
One big one from the aforementioned freshers fall.
I'm not sure I understand the question?
I'd love a better memory. Both academically and socially it would just make life so much easier.
I like to think so.
"Who fares best on the stock market between when I am and when you are?"
I try not to, but it often falls into forgiving but not forgetting.
I'd be interested to see what a real life catdog would look like.
I when I was about 15 had swine flu badly, and was laid in bed with a fever. I confided in my dad who was laid next to me that I thought I was going to die because of it and we had a conversation the possibility. Probably not unusual, but it's definitely one that sticks out in my mind.
I know from experience I can go for weeks if not months.
I once had a mullet. It was awful.
No, but gonna have a crack at it next year
I'm terrible at identifying and replicating accents.
I'm one of those weird people that likes dry toast. It's something of a comfort food.
A proposed room layout for if I was to swap bedrooms with my sister.
Yes! I was more cautious about doing it living in student halls this year but by this point I don't really care and just do it anyway.
In the existence of extraterrestrial life? Definitely. In the existence of complex extraterrestrial life? Probably. In the existence of intelligent extraterrestrial life? Possibly.
I used to read it weekly in the TV magazine my dad bought. It was mostly for fun, though I think a small part of me wanted to believe it.
The underused, underrated: the &
Dragons are massively overrated in my opinion. They're cool and all, but dinosaurs are every bit as cool and real.
Do I get to answer too, or only ask it?
There we go, all answered. I can't imagine it all made an especially thrilling read but it certainly passed a train journey along. I edited a few of the questions to make them simpler or remove problematic wording so feel free to use this list yourself.
