Hello there, beautiful! (too soon?)

Yes, I have been browsing through The Tumblr again. Shame on me. No idea what I was actually looking for, but I happened to stumble - tumble - upon this tag that said: REBLOG AND ANSWER. So that's what I'm gonna do.

Since you don't know me, you probably don't really care too much about my answers, but personally I enjoy reading tags like that and wondering what my own answers would be, so maybe you take pleasure in answering the following questions yourself!

As to the rest, take this as a kind of profile or personal introduction of myself. 

1. Last kiss: exactly two and a half weeks ago 
(why is this the very first question? is that really the most important thing you wanna know about a person? #justsayin)

2. Last phone call: one of my closest friends Emily

3. Last text message: my friend David

4. Last song you listened to: I Hate Everyone – Get Set Go (such a cheerful song! Or at least, it cheers me up)

5. Last time you cried: huh. Now that you mention it: I don't even remember. Usually I cry quite frequently, just as an emotional outlet or something, but the last time I really cried was early in May, I think


6. Dated someone twice: yes

7. Been cheated on: no

8. Kissed someone & regretted it: no

9. Lost someone special: yes, last year a very important mentor figure of mine passed away

10. Been depressed: yes. There was a time two years ago when I was in a very bad place, struggling with a certain mental illness a lot of younger insecure people struggle with (especially females), side effects of with leading towards a bipolar disorder in my case. But fortunately I have been able to overcome this unstable stage of life and outgrow my insecurities and false perceptions slowly but steadily. Sounds a bit like brainwashing, huh? But all jokes aside, for those who are sceptical: mental disorders can be cured. It is not easy and it can't be done by changing physically. Change has to happen at the mental level. It has to come from within
(I apologize for this lengthy answer, but I think a question about being depressed should be answered with more than just something like “yeah, I guess, whatever”)

11. Been drunk and threw up: nope i haven't. i've been trunk before, but never threw up. been blessed with good organs and a bit of reason.


15. Made a new friend: yes! I met lots of wonderful new people

17. Laughed until you cried: actually I did! last time must've been about two weeks ago
