SEVEN FACTS ABOUT ME:

1) I was a seriously gullible kid. The first time I ever flew on a plane was when I was seven and immigrating to Canada with my family. My dad had the bright idea to inform me that every passenger was required to parachute out of the plane when they reach their destination. I’d stared at him wide-eyed, bouncing between excitement and trepidation, and asked if kids and parents were allowed to parachute together. He said that he’ll ask one of the flight attendants. Then, when we got close to landing, he was like, “Oh, it’s raining! No parachuting for us today, I’m afraid.” I don’t know if I was more relieved or disappointed. Add a hundred more stories like this and you basically have a summary of my childhood.

 

2) I’m pretty scatterbrained, which can be a bit of an inconvenience when you’re in a science field. I lose stuff all the time. I barged into random people’s rooms constantly, when I was living in dorm, thinking they were mine. And I get hopelessly lost downtown if I don’t have my nose perpetually glued to a map.

 

3) I hate apple pies. Especially hot apple pies. There’s just something about the taste of warm mushy apples combined with cinnamon and sugar and butter that makes me nauseated.

 

4) I wanted to be a voice actor when I was in my teens (and still kind of do, to be honest).ย  I would play classic RPGs and yammer at the computer screen during all the dialogue bits. I adored Shakespearean read-alongs during English class. Even now, I love reading books aloud and doing all the different voices. My favourites are the angsty, emotional scenes (because of course). Hamlet’s soliloquies? Nailed them.

 

5) I had a massive fear of people in full-body cartoon suits as a kid. More so than clowns. Clowns are fine! Clowns are great. Clowns make balloon animals! Clowns have eyes that blink and facial expressions that change. Not like those 7 ft tall, perpetually smiling monstrosities that lumber up to you with open arms like they’re about to whisk you away to FUNland, where we’ll have so much FUN, with no need to EVER return home, and there’s definitely no murdering of small children going on, haha!

Disneyland? More like Horrorland. And watching Donnie Darko did NOT improve my opinion of them. (I do apologize to any costumer-wearing peeps I’ve ever encountered who were traumatized by me pointing, wailing and sprinting away)

 

6) I’m a certified lifeguard. I love swimming. But you plop me into any body of opaque water where I can’t touch the bottom, and I will panic and thrash around like a fish in a barrel. So if you ever meet me and decide you want to take me swimming in a lake or an ocean, expect to be used as a human bodyboard.

 

7) Anime! Love them. I pretty much grew up with them because 80% of the kid shows they aired back in Korea were anime. Except they were dubbed over so I didn’t know they were Japanese shows back then–they were just really great cartoons. Some of my favourites were Slayers, Digimon, Slam Dunk, Cardcaptor Sakura, and Case Closed (and yeah, some of these probably aren’t really suitable for a 5-8 year-old).

    So I love disney world and taking pics with characters, but there is totally something weird about the way you can’t talk to them and it’s super awkward. Lol! And Donny Darko was my FAVORITE movie in high school. My friends were really worried about me ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

      Omg I totally agree about the awkward bit! Nowadays I’m less likely to run away from them and more inclined to want to rip their head off so I can actually SEE their face. Disney magic is wasted on me. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
