You get what you take.

Noora 2.0

I think it's time for a new introduction with the "new" leaf on my blog. Or at least recap who's the person behind all this. As I'm feeling very lazy and I don't have enough readers to ask questions about me, I found this silly questionnaire from the depths of internet, so let's use it.

What is your earliest memory? I'm throwing a tantrum as I'm leaving the Honkalampi ice pit as I couldn't ice skate properly. I was maybe 4 at the time.

What did you enjoy about school? Which school? I have to say I never really enjoyed elementary or secondary school. The latter a bit more though. University I did enjoy.

Name 1 thing you miss about being a kid. Being naive.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I must admit, at one point I wanted to be a model :D Then the reality hit me and I realised that not with this face or body :D Then I wanted to become a lawyer but luckily I got a reality check with that one too.

What was your favorite childhood injury? I've never "properly" hurt myself, 
but I was quite proud of myself when I hit my leg with an axe (only a scratch, it hardly even bled). I was always very proud of my tiny scars after I had scratched myself on  something minor. Might explain why I'm still so accident prone and don't really mind.

Worst roommate you have ever had? I've never had absolutely horrible roommates, just once me and my roommate were very different people who didn't enjoy the mutual living situation.

What is your worst dating experience? I've been to maybe five dates ever on my life, so hard to say. However, the other one was just incredibly awkward as I had promised to meet someone after a party where I ended up talking to the host and he seemed to interpret my politeness as flirting. This happens quite often actually, I just think it's polite to keep up the conversation but this gets me into trouble ever so often.

Which is the most funniest prank played on you or played by you? My friends aren't really pranksters, nor am I. I can't think of any that happened to me, but I remember having a sleepover at my friends house when it was her birthday and her brother woke her and me up by throwing a bucket of water on us.

What is the craziest thing you have ever done? With the same friend, deciding on Gothenburg train station to jump off the train to Oslo and take the train to Paris via Copenhagen and Cologne instead. The biggest adrenaline rush I've ever had. I need to do it again, I haven't had a proper adventure in ages!

Do you have any hidden talents? I think some people are surprised by the fact that I'm actually quite funny (at least I make myself laugh, and that's something!).

Name one thing that not many people know about you. I do more stupid stuff than people think/expect. 
These situations usually get me into trouble.

You wouldn’t be caught dead, where? Solarium.
Was there ever a time when you were frightened for your life? In an amusement park in Budapest. The vehicle had had huge gaps in it and as it went upside down I had to hold with all my strength to stay in and not fall through on my head to the pavement. Horrifying.

What outdoor activities do you like to do?
I haven't had a chance to do many outdoor things in a long time because of lack of time and money, but I love swimming in lakes in summer. I do enjoy hiking as well (to extent). I think I would enjoy climbing as well.

Where is your most favorite place on this earth?
Norway. I love the scenery so much. Though of all the places I've been to, there's something I love in all of them.

Why do you like living in this area?
To be honest, I don't. I've never really liked my area nor my city. But being back here should be a short term situation.

What do you consider the most important event of your life so far? I think it was when I first moved abroad. The ability to independence on a new country was just a feeling you can't beat.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?
I think overall proving to myself that I can live successfully in several different countries is an achievement I am very proud of.

What is the one thing for which you would most like to be remembered after your death?
What an awesome person I was.

Do you have any phobias?
Tons! I'm actually very worrisome and anxious person.

Do you feel you have a purpose or calling in life? Kind of. I don't think it's anything coming from above, but I know what I want to do with my life. If only employers would understand it and hire me to the work I want to do.

Name three exotic countries you would like to visit.
Peru, Cuba and Vietnam. But what I really want it to travel through the whole world.

If your house was on fire and you could grab only 3 things before leaving, what would they be?
I hope my cat will be able to walk out himself so he won't be included. Besides my family everything is replaceable. I don't know! Stupid question.

Do you believe in extraterrestrials or life on other planets?
Yes. It would be a huge surprise if the Earth was the only one to develop life in any form.

Do you believe in ghosts?
Not really, but I'm not very happy about the noises our old wood house makes during the night.

What do you value most in life?
Knowledge or freedom.

If you were one of two people left on this earth, and the other was the same sex as you; would you go gay? Yes. This is incredibly stupid and biased question. I need cuddles even in the apocalypse despite the gender.

What do you think the greatest invention is in your lifetime and why?
I feel really boring saying this but probably the internet. It's just amazing how it has changed the world in such a short period of time.

What do you think the secret to a good life is?
Enjoy and make your life happen. Don't expect anyone else to do it for you.

What would be your dream job? The King/Queen of the Universe. And it will happen. Watch me.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
London, Paris or New York. I have a feeling I would be happy in one of these cities. I've been to all of them and loved them, so it's not any overly romanticised "hunch" I have from movies.

What is important to you right now?
Creating my future and finding employment from my field.

What is your goal in life? Do you think you will achieve it?
I want to make an impact. I want to be known and respected, but behind the curtains.

If you knew you were going to die in 24 hours, name three things you would do in the time you had left. I don't want to do this one. I'm incredibly sensitive and even thinking of this kind of question can make me weep.

What crazy activities do you dream of trying someday? I want to bag my rucksack and leave for a road trip/adventure for an unknown period of time. I want to see the world and try the crazy activities it has to offer.

If you could go on a road trip with any person (dead or alive), who would you choose and where would you go?
Would Jack Kerouac be too cliche? Then maybe I'd finally make the road trip to the Arctic Sea happen with my Minna.
