------------- It appears that I was tagged by Joukai-8D. Yup.
The rules can be found here: I'm not a wall to graffiti, so why do you tag me?
However, I am not going to be following them exactly. Heh. I shall answer the questions, of course, but I never tag folks in these things, nor do I make up new questions, so whomever wants to participate may feel free to answer the same questions that I will answer here!
1. What book/movie has shaped your life the most? How so?
Book: The Harry Potter series. When I first started reading the books I was the same age as Harry, and not only that but I related very, very closely to the character in personality and behavior. I literally grew up with the character in more than just age. As a result, it had a huge effect on me. The series was already intriguing and incredible as it was, and is, but this little aspect just heightened the experience.
Movie: Ratatouille. It changed my life. I relate to the character of Remy, some of the things he went/goes through, and his passion for his craft. The film told me to hang on and not give up -- to keep going despite all of the odds. I was bent on getting into the animation industry before then already, but this just solidified everything; plus, I was going through a very difficult time in my life then and this helped me get through stuff. It was truly a life changer in many ways.
2. What fictional world would you live in if you could?
That's a good question. I'd love to visit Hogwarts, of course. If not there then maybe Middle Earth.
3. What is your favorite kind of mythology?
4. What is one food you just cannot stand?
Whip cream. It's the worst.
5. What is the scariest movie/book you ever saw/read?
Movie: The Grudge, maybe? Never again. Heh.
Book: Coraline. The book was scarier than the film. I purposely read it before watching the movie so that I'd have my own vision of what the scenarios and world looked like. The mind is fascinating, and can create in its head some pretty scary images if given pen and paper to write upon. Of course, everyone has a different idea of what things in a book look like. What the film-makers came up with was great, but I recall certain moments (such as the dark theatre sequence) to be much more unnerving in my head when reading the book.
6. Do you ever have any dreams that repeat? What are they, and why do you think they occur?
Ha-ha. I'm not even gonna bother to go into this one, because they would take too long to explain. Good question, though!
7. Does your room have a theme? If so, what is it?
Yup! Entertainment. There are posters of movies and whatnot all over the walls, as well as film memorabilia on the shelves, in cupboards, and in the closet. My sister and I share a room and we have similar likes and dislikes, so it's one big room of "geek", basically. I also have scriptures, devotionals, and encouraging messages on the walls.
8. Where do you feel the safest?
Wherever God is, which is everywhere.
9. What song speaks to you the most?
Most likely something by Owl City. Vanilla Twilight, possibly. Actually, I'd say that the music video of that speaks more to me than the actual song. Hmmm. I'd have to think about this one....
10. What is your opinion on reading? Why do you feel that way?
Reading sharpens the mind. Books can take you places -- make you feel like you're there. When I read a book I honestly feel like I'm in the world of that novel and not on my bed or in the store or wherever I may be in reality. Reading stimulates the imagination, helps flex your writing, and can aid in improving your grammar and punctuation skills. Books are one of the most wonderful things in the entire planet. Viva la paper. Viva la books!
