Excluding the languages you’ve studied already, what languages would you like to be fluent in?
I would love to be fluent in Spanish or French.
Name some books that have been life-changing, or incredibly memorable for you.
Embarrassing choice, but I loved Megan McCafferty’s YA book Sloppy Firsts. I also really enjoyed Banana Yoshimoto’s Kitchen. In both books, the authors had a way of weaving words together and making magic on the page. I don’t think I can explain it better.
How content are you with your life right now?
70/30. I’m mostly content, but every now and then this rush of stress and anxiety rears its ugly head. Trying to move your entire life to another country is mothereffing stressful.
If you weren’t a Muggle, what would your patronus be of, you think?
I love this question. Uh…maybe a polar bear? It’d be kind of bad ass if a giant dragonfly was my patronus. It’d have to be giant though.
Are you a homeowner? Is owning a home a dream you have?
Not a homeowner, but my dream home would have a big garden with a lot of flowers. There would be wooden floors and maybe a tatami room. I’d have a fluffy sofa where people can curl up and read. Oops, didn’t answer the question…I think it’d be wise to own property.
If you got to name a capitol of a city, what would the name be?
Not sure, but something ridiculous like Lalaland or Boogietown.
Favorite breed of dog?
CORGI. (I legit sat here thinking and then it hit me with its little feet and plump body.) That or maybe a big dog like a lab.
What are some things you were recognized for growing up?
Being quiet and good with paperwork. My dad made us log what we would spend our money on in order to get our weekly allowance. I wasn’t really recognized for a lot of things, I was kind of a shrinking violet, believe it or not.
If you could completely forget a particular memory, any memory, would you?
God, the painfully awkward years of middle school. Just imagine all those cringe worthy moments you’ve had in your life and insert an Asian woman into them.
What’s your favorite flower?
Hydrangeas, tulips, sunflowers, daises.
What was the name of the first pet you’ve ever had? If you’ve never had a pet, do you name inanimate objects?
I was never allowed a pet because my mother was convinced we’d grow bored of it and then she’d end up with a fourth child. Alternatively, I used to do gardening with her and sometimes talk to the flowers. I don’t name them, but sometimes I caress my leather purses, LOL. They’re so beautiful and the closest I’ve come to a pet, I guess.
