Something that makes you stand out:
I've been told I'm brave for saying what I think, but it never seemed like a big deal to me and it's not like I don't hold my tongue in the right situations either. None of the teachers I hated ever knew I hated them and I've never burned any bridges although I'd like to just let go and do it. But I suppose I'm a little oblivious sometimes. Recently I realized I was picked on sometimes in school, but I never thought of it that way and treated it like a normal argument so I didn't get bullied. (WTF?)
Something weird about you:
I make noises when I move around. I'm always grunting or "phw"ing or something. Also, although I'm straight, I think there have been people in my middle school, high school, and college that have thought I was gay. Middle and high school were for various reasons, but college is because I'm part of a group of people who like to cuddle and I'm guilty of walking around with my arm over the shoulder of the person I jokingly claim is my soulmate (to be fair, she fits under my arm really well).
Special talent(if any):
According to my friends, my special talent is to stay way more focused for hours at a time when I'm watching dramas etc. and therefore being able to stay up later at night. Some of them think I don't sleep. It isn't true. I just don't sleep a lot sometimes and make it up later or I sleep when I'm not supposed to.
being able to put up with other people's messes (you should meet my former roommate whom I love to death but still was an unbelievable slob),
writing (I never realized until recently how bad so many other people are at it),
analyzing things (and over-analyzing things apparently),
knowing how to move my body well during sports etc,
never getting hurt and rarely getting sick and being mentally stable,
even though I procrastinate and don't put enough effort in sometimes I always manage to do my work well
I don't drink caffeine if I can help it, I am not dependent! (talk to some other student-teachers to understand this)
romantic relationships (I don't think I'm very flexible and I'm kind of picky),
my face and voice aren't as expressive as I think they are so I get misunderstood a lot,
anything to do with spacial intelligence (i.e. navigating, math, board and card games),
I'm not able to really give a crap about things I can't see for myself (like aid programs and what-have-you),
tend to think people don't like me for no reason,
get really exhausted being social for too long (introvert!)
I think I bore people by talking too much sometimes (so either I do or I constantly worry I do)
art and visual creativity
Leader or follower?
Definitely follower. I like having power (who doesn't?), so I'll still do my best to convince other people to do what I want, but I can't take the responsibility of being leader. If I can convince myself that I don't care about the outcome though, I'm perfectly able to sit back and laugh at the proceedings.
Favorite Arashi member and why:
Nino. Who doesn't love an underdog? A lot of people call Nino a brat, but I think that's wrong in a way. He's very mature and I get the feeling he puts a lot into what he does, but he doesn't show it. Nino gets called girly (and oh he is) but isn't the manliest man supposed to be the one who doesn't show off everything he's done?
If you could be an Arashi member for a day, which would you be?
I think I'd like to try being Sho. He seems like he can take on a lot of different personalities and succeed at them all. I considered Aiba or Ohno, but I think Sho would be more interesting overall.
If you were an animal, what animal would you be, and why?
Hmm, an animal is always hard. I feel it's like a nickname: you can't give one to yourself. But since I hate it when people dodge questions like that, I would say a pangolin. I looked it up especially for this with the main requirement being nocturnal. XD Apparently it also curls up into a ball when threatened like armadillos do. I might not have mentioned, but although I'm aggressive sometimes, my reaction to conflict with people I know is to retreat. Also, pangolins just look COOL.
Picture of you(optional):
I tried to put a pangolin, but it wouldn't work. T.T
