11 Random Facts about me:
1. I'm a student of Creative Writing & Cultural Journalism, currently working on my new coming-of-age novel. Cross your fingers!
2. Even though i don't dress very daringly, i am fairly interested in fashion.
3. I have to admit, i struggle with envy from time to time.

4. My biggest pet peeve is being stood up by people. Luckily i personally have only witnessed this once, but the thought of it just makes me angry. So rude!

6. If i were a song right now i would be Whole Wide World by Mindy Gledhill.
7. Even though i seem extremely organized, i am indeed quite clumsy.

9. I get excited very easily. i've been compared to a little bubbly squirrel several times.

10. As a general rule, i am rather under-dressed for the climate of North European winter. (beauty knows no pain, right? -chattering teeth- right?!)
11. If i earned more money, i would love to eat organic fresh fruit ONLY. Gigantic heaps of fruit and veggies every day all day long (yes, i am crazy like that). For now i just have to work with what i got, including lots of dried fruit, nuts, soy rice milk etc. Which is of course also very healthy, but not exactly great for my skin, since those are very dehydrating foods.
