Get to know me!

Remember these surveys that used to float around as a chain email that you'd send to all your friends? Hahaha or add to personal pages on Myspace or early Facebook? Thought it'd be fun to fill out!

Are you a morning or night person?
I'd love to think I'm a morning person so I could see those beautiful sunsets but nope, I'm a night owl through and through. I hate waking up. In fact, whenever I have more than 2 days off I always fall into my pattern of going to bed at 3 or 4am and waking up at noon or 1.

Which do you prefer, sweet or salty foods?
Quite honestly, I'll crave salty foods and then right after I want sweet. And vice versa. Life is hard.

Ninjas or pirates?
How about Ninja Pirates?

Ninjas vs pirates, discuss.
Look. Ninja's are sweet. They are stealth and nighttime rolled into one fast moving killing machine. Pirates are without direction (except greed) who have an affliction for parrots and booty, and both kinds of booty ;)

What was your favorite childhood television program?
Early childhood was Care Bears and late childhood was Sailor Moon, but I think Babar takes the cake for my entire childhood. I still try to catch it on teletoon retro lol. Don't forget Magic School Bus!

Are you a collector of anything?
Hahahahahahahaha, nail polish and books?

If you could be any animal, what would you be?
A tiger - because they're powerful and solitary, but can be social when they need to be.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
I usually say teleportation - because I hate taking city transit and this could give me a chance to get out of sticky situations and go travelling. But I think I would love to be like Beast Master and talk to animals. I could form real relationships with them and help save them or protect them. 

What is usually your first thought when you wake up?
If I sleep for 10 more minutes which bus will I catch? Can I skip taking a shower?

What do you usually think about right before falling asleep?
If I go to bed now, how many hours of sleep is that?

What’s your favorite color?
I hate picking colours but I am drawn to vibrant greens and oranges. Regarding nail polish... no fucking clue!

What’s your favorite animal?
I have 2 that I refuse to pick between: Gorillas and Tigers. Both are majestic, both are powerful, both are intelligent, both are social. I wish I could live with gorillas, and that they wouldn't kill me. Also, dogs are so cute!

What's your favorite book? 
This is hard. Different books for different times in my life. When I was a child it was The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper. For a play, it'd have to be The Tempest by Shakespeare. For academia, it'd have to be Paradise Lost by Milton or Machiavelli's Prince. And finally, with that being said it's a toss-up between A Fine Balance by Rohintin Mistry or The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje as an adult. Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows would be second to those.
Do you believe in extraterrestrials or life on other planets?
Yes, I do! Ever lie down and stare up at the blue sky and wonder if someone from a different galaxy is doing the exact same thing contemplating your existence?

Do you believe in ghosts?
I believe in a spirit world; once we die our souls pass onto another plane where we exist there.

Ever been addicted to a video/computer game? Which one(s)?
Hahahahahaha. Ever heard of Maple Story? Fucking used to love that game. Unfortunately, I got hacked and all my shit was stolen. I was a level 50 something warrior. Know how hard it is to train those????

You’re given 1 million dollars, what do you spend it on?
I'd go one of two ways: pay off my siblings and mine school loans, set up my parents with a maid service, buy a car for myself and take my friends on a trip. OR try to get into a Masters program abroad and earn a PhD.

Have any bad habits?
Rocking back and forth.

Which bad habits, if any, drive you crazy?
People who chew with their mouths open, or people who pop their gum while chewing it like a cow. Or nail biters. Gossipers. etc.

Honest, Forgiving, Leader

Procrastination and tendency to not believe in myself.

What personality traits do you look for in a partner?
Someone empathetic, loyal, and genuinely true to their interests.

Someone who is jealous or can't stand other people moving up in life. I dislike bossy individuals or people who don't know how to take a back seat/spotlight hogs. I also dislike others who constantly feel the need to trash talk or gossip - it drives me crazy.

Do you see yourself getting married in the next 5 years?
I'm 26. Do I see myself getting married by 31? No, but I hope I've met someone by 31.

Are you mostly a clean or messy person?
A sexy combination of both. My room is a disaster, but everything else is pristine.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
Honestly, I'm not too sure. If I knew French I'd say the French countryside... perhaps even the English countryside - but with a large lot of land and a bungalow house with a nice basement and wrap-around deck.

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Europe, like Italy France Czech Republic for the art.

Name 1 thing you miss about being a kid:

The freedom and having money to do whatever the FUCK I want.

To be a University professor teaching English and a published author of a well-received book.

Which would you rather have, 100 million dollars or true love?
Gimme the money and then I'll find the guy later. Haha. I'm serious though. With 100 million you could set up camps for disadvantaged children, help get clean water and food to places that don't have that, and I could fund a school or establish a victim's assistance program. I could set up a scholarship for kids or bring art and music to people who don't have that. The possibilities are endless!

If you could have 3 wishes granted, what would they be?
I'd wish for nothing because making wishes is BAAAADD news bears. BUT if I had to, I'd probably wish for: a brand new car with no problems, to be a well-received published author, and $100 million dollars.

Ever wish you were born the opposite sex? If so, why?
Yes. I wanted to play hockey growing up, and it's easier in my culture sometimes to have been a boy - you can do whatever the fuck you want without getting hassled or told "boys don't do that".

I was severely bullied throughout Elementary and Junior High and grade 10 - and my main tormentor is now my BFF.

What's your favorite drink?
Bubbletea! It's good, refreshing and I love the pearls. I choose not to drink alcohol but on certain occasions I will bend and have a glass as it's not a religious thing for me. I enjoy the taste of Gin.

This changes so often I don't even know. I always throw these particular names around: Jatinder, Tejinder/Tejindra, Gurbaksh, Meva, Amrita, Noor, Gabriel, Alexandrof, Constantine/Constance etc

What's your favorite holiday?
In all honesty, I'm not a fan of holidays because mostly they are superficial celebrations and on top of that they are not equally acknowledged, respected, or celebrated so I'd have to boil it down to: Vaisakhi or Diwali.

Yes, I've been to India in '99 and in the process we were in Frankfurt for 8 hours lol.
