I stumbled over this tag at the lovely Lauren’s blog.
So here’s your chance to get to know me even better
than you want to.
1. What’s your favourite candle scent?
– I hate the smell of candles. I don’t if it’s because it’s synthetic or what, but I can’t walk through an aisle with candles in a store without getting nauseous.
2. What female celebrity do you wish was your sister?
– My mind is too obsessed with Game of Thrones at the moment so they’re the only celebrities I can think of. So I’d love to be sisters with Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner!
3. What male celebrity do you wish was your brother?
– Kit Harrington is such a cute puppy…
4. How old do you think you’ll be when you get married?
– No idea. I’ve been with S for a couple of years (and don’t see that ending any time soon), but there’s no rush to do it and it doesn’t really matter that much to me.
5. Do you know a hoarder?
– Not a pathological hoarder, but my mom is very bad at throwing things away, instead she feels up the attic with so much stuff.
6. Can you do the splits?
– If by splits you mean split my pants trying, then I totally can
7. How old were you when you learned to ride a bike?
– Maybe 3 or 4? I don’t know. I only remember that it took me a while to learn to use the brakes, so at first the only way I could stop was riding straight into a hedge.
8. How many oceans have you swam in?
– Hmm, I’ve been in the Mediterranean sea, and then the North Sea and Kattegat in Denmark.

10. Is anyone in your family in the army?
– Not currently.
11. What would you name your daughter if you had one?
– I honestly find it so hard to imagine that one day I could be a mom. Like what?? I am a child, I can’t have one??
12. What would you name your son if you had one?
– I always call my food baby William so that’s an obvious choice.
13. What’s the worst grade you got on a test?

– …. Danish people don’t really do Halloween.

20. Have you ever taken karate lessons?

21. Do you know who Kermit the frog is?
– Doesn’t everyone? I’ve never watched the Muppets though.
22. What’s the first amusement park you’ve been to?
– I grew up less than 20 km from Lego land, so my family went there all the time.
23. What language, besides your native language, would you like to be fluent in?
– Well, English for starters. But I also love french, and used to take lessons outside of school in it. And now that I’m an adult (what) I’ve realised how amazing it would be to know Spanish.
24. Do you spell the colour as grey or gray?
25. Is your father bald?
– Well, almost. I frequently offer to make him a wig from all the hair I’m constantly shedding, but he has yet to accept it.

33. If you have a nickname, what is it?
– Arne… and Stinky Winky as inside joke in a friend group
34. Who’s your favourite person in the world?

– Yes. My body is a mess (it’s not really that bad, it just feels that way sometimes).
40. What medical conditions do you have?
– Do you really want the full list? We can start with mental health, where I’m diagnosed with severe depressions (multiple times) and social anxiety. On top of that, I’ve messed up my left knee, my body overreacts whenever it comes in contact with pollen, I can’t see without glasses or contact lenses. And that silly thing Autosomal Dominant Compelling Helio-Ophthalmic Outburst Syndrome (ACHOO).
And on top of that, my doctor and physical therapist is currently trying to figure what’s wrong with my head and neck. At the time of writing it may be something serious, so fingers crossed that it’s not.
41. How many times have you been to the hospital?

– I have found both Nemo and Dory.
43. Where do you buy your jeans?

– Partly jokingly, my chiropractor told me I looked very fancy in my jeans (because the previous time had joked that sports science student only wear active wear, and I said I just feel too formal & fancy wearing jeans).

– Yes. Then I share them in details with my boyfriend (whether he wants to hear it or not). Then he tells me I can never share them with anyone, because they’re so messed up.

48. What religion will you raise your children to practice?
– What children? I’m so not ready to think about questions like this (and I sorta don’t wanna talk about religion online).

– I don’t remember ever thinking he was real, only teasing my younger siblings about it.
50. Why do you have a blog?
