Hi! I saw these questions on the internet some time ago and thought it would be fun to answer them.
List 5 random facts about yourself
I often confuse the words orange and purple. I know exactly which colour is which, but for some reason the words come out mixed.
I love wearing black. It doesn’t make me morose or Goth; it is just a colour I love to wear.
I think apples are disgusting. It is most definitely not the food Eve ate in the garden…
I would love to visit France and see the Eiffel tower.
I love the smell of new books.
Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and explain how they became fears.
Drowning – I can’t swim, so I have always had a semi fear of large amounts of water.
Large dogs – I have very vivid dreams, and once dreamt that a large dog was chasing me in our house. This dream isn’t in any way realistic, since I was on the room divider hiding from said dog, but since then I am eerily afraid of canines.
Change – I am usually afraid of changing things around me. If I don’t see a reason to, I can be very stubborn about it.
List 5 things you would tell your 16 year-old self, if you could.
Don’t worry too much about the people around you – you will make new friends and barely remember these people’s names in 7 years.
Appreciate your body more. This is probably the thinnest you will ever be.
Start talking to people, don’t be so shy.
Choose other subjects. Consumer sciences and Information technology won’t be any use to you in your future career as a microbiologist.

What is your dream job, and why?
I am pretty much doing it right now, or at least working towards it, but I would love to travel to other countries and work there as a microbiologist. I would also love to be the writer of a published novel.

I love watching and playing sport, and exercising.
I love to organise things when I have the time.- I am passionate about this blog. I really love it.

Men who don’t flush the toilet. (Too much info, I know, but I really detest it)
I hate how I procrastinate when I know something is important, and the stress I feel because I haven’t done it yet.
People who believe every email they receive. Like lady Gaga being a demon or something. Honestly
Fans. Really. People freaking out because Justin Bieber cut his hair. People who cry hysterically when they hear One Direction is coming to their country on tour.
Couples who date for two weeks and then become engaged. Or people who serially become engaged.
Pants. I dislike wearing them so much. I would much rather wear a dress, skirt or tights.
Naughty children whose parents can’t control them.
People who think they are the owners of your time and expect you to leave everything to help them.

Finding a career path that suits me perfectly, even though I never thought I would end up in a lab.
Losing 20 kg’s in a two year frame.
What is the thing you most wish you were great at?
Playing music. I would love to play the piano or violin. They are both such lovely instruments but I just never had the time or money to learn
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 15 years?
Imagining the future isn’t a great idea as things can go into another direction very easily. I would love to be married, settled comfortably with my degree finished, even though I don’t have a definite time frame. I am not sure if I want children, so I am not putting a frame on that either. I would love to visit a few countries before I am old as well.

Probably when I went to Jeffrey’s bay in 2011. It was wonderful to be at the coast again.

My feet haha. Because they take me everywhere.
