I don't know what is about me, but a lot of people tend to ask me the same questions, especially in regards to things I like. So, to make things easier, here are some Frequently Asked Questions so I can show this blog post if someone asks me that again.
1. What do you want for your birthday?
This is honestly the most asked question ever. I am indeed fortunate to have people ask me so they can give me what I want and I always make wishlists for this very reason.
HERE, HERE and HERE are things I always want (and these lists will always be updated) and in case you wanted to get something, you can never go wrong with shoes (size 37), notebooks, mugs, necklaces and flowers (except roses, which I don't fancy).
2. How old are you? How did you finish O'levels at 14?
I turned 22 just a few days ago, and I'm a 90's kid! (92 ROCKS!) I did not skip any grades or get double promotion or anything. I started to read at a really young age, (thanks mom and dad! They told me I used to read about everything from notices on walls to people's love letters!) and back then my island did not have baby nursery or nursery, so I started at LKG just like other kids but at 2 years earlier than the rest so I guess I always was 2 years younger than all of my classmates at all my grades. To be honest, I did not know any kid of my age (except for my cousins) till I met Aru on a trip at CHSE and since then, I've been fortunate to actually meet people my age and work with them which is crazy fun!
3. Why do you like Harry Potter/Doctor Who/Any TV series or movie?
Well, I don't know. Why do anyone really like anything? There's no once answer. I guess I just enjoy them because of several reasons. Sometimes I like things for no reason too, I really don't know how to answer this question.
4. Is that a uniform?
Whenever I'm wearing a blazer, I would get asked this question. No, it's a freaking blazer. People who work on corporate offices usually wear blazers, get a dictionary or watch an episode of Project Runway maybe?
5. Why are you wearing the Maldivian Flag?
OK, so I got asked this only today, but by three different people. SO, what? You can go around wearing British flags and American flags but you can't wear you own country's flag? Who made up that rule? Besides, I actually genuinely love the Maldivian flag and I would wear it as often as I want to!
6. Do you dance?
Yes, I dance and I sing and I write poetry and I write novels (well, at least start novels) and I make mistakes and I bake and I drink lots of tea, and I do puzzles, and I clean a lot, and I collect postcards, and I talk to people and I sometimes say sarcastic things and I get sick and I watch a lot of TV series and I smell flowers. I am a person who enjoy the little things and the big things.
7. Why do you read?
Really? Do you even need to ask that? I read because I enjoy reading. It takes me to new worlds, to new people, to new adventures. I am not one of those pretentious people who believe that anybody is better than the other because they read, or play games, or something but I honestly believe that reading makes the mind grow, it's food to the brain. Being a reader has made me a better person in so many ways.
8. Why do you have a wand? What does it do?
It does magic, you muggle. It's my weapon. I love my wand and I will carry it wherever I want to. I don't care what you think about it, I love it and it makes me happy so that's all that matters.
9. Are you the TARDIS?
The most asked question at Shinzou Con! YES, I was and I had a blast being the TARDIS. Why was I the TARDIS? Well, It was one of the easiest to make in a day's time and also because I always want to travel to far off lands, to see the worlds, to have adventures, to be part of a lot of people's journey, and what better than to be the thing that does that!
10. Do you actually like Country music? You probably only listen to Taylor Swift!
YES. I actually honestly love country music. I do love Taylor Swift and yes, she was the first country artists I listened to and she made me love the genre, but since then I've listened to old country like Garth Brooks and love country bands and songs. Some of my favourites include Hunter Hayes, Brooke Shields, Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker and Florida Georgia Line. I don't think liking country music makes me any lesser than you and your death metal or indie rock. I like a whole lot of genres and country happens to be my favourite, maybe I'm a bit too romantic and likes stories and some tragic tales over a sunset and a car ride.
Do you have any questions you've wanted to ask me? Let me know and I'll try to answer them!
