About Me

CURRENT MISSION

stop hanging out with sergei

ABOUT ME

I think I have a very easy sense of humour... if you have a joke, I'll probably laugh at it no matter how bad it is (in fact, the worse it is, the better in my opinion). I used to be in Army Cadets.. that was fun.

I did a semester of exchange at Aarhus University in Denmark and it was simply amazing :)

I'm usually on League of Legends... if you want to queue with me, message me for my user! (I play ADC/Supp ^^)

PHILOSOPHY

The glass is half full.

Let Future Anita worry about it...

Interests

Canadian = hockey? In my case, you're totally right. I love my Canucks and cheer for the Canadiens and Preds on the side. It's my goal to watch a game in every hockey arena in the NHL! I've been to 3 so far (Van, Ott, Mtl)

I'm also a fan of football :) Nationally, I cheer for the German NT... I'm not sure where that came from. My favourite player at the moment is Thomas Muller. I like 90% of the players on the Spanish NT as well, but somehow when they come together as a team, I just can't bring myself to cheer for them! Not sure what the future holds for me yet, but I hope to go to Brazil for the 2014 WC :)

I'm not a real pro at photography, but I'm slowly learning! I use a Minolta X-700 film camera and am currently experimenting with expired film :)

I enjoy the works of the following artists: Olafur Eliasson, Chihuly, Alfons Mucha, Mirko Hanak, ROA, Supakitch & Koralie.

Food, food, food, I love food. Good food, junk food, healthy food, greasy food, I don't care... if it tastes good I want some! Definitely don't have the palete to be considered a true foodie, but maybe my blind love for food will win you over anyways?

BOARD GAMES!!!! Scrabble, Bananagrams, Ticket to Ride, Telestrations, anything!

And I like playing ultimate frisbee, WHICH IS A SPORT, for those of you who think that it isn't.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've worn the queen bee in a jar around my neck before and had all those bees on me. It's kind of funny because I'm scared of bees. The kind of scared where if I hear it buzzing around me, I'll run down half a block just to get away from it. Anyways, this was when I went to China the first time around, my mum coerced me into it, saying, "this is a great experience, and you'd probably never willingly choose to do this yourself anyways." When the bees started climbing on me, I started crying.

Ah, the Norwegian fjords. Absolutely breathtaking.
