Kaya

Is it just me, or do these question-things bring back the nostalgia of notes on Facebook? Or even before that, the chain emails you sent in elementary school? And you mostly just sent it to your crush hoping they would admit their secret love for you. Anywho, here’s me, speed-round style.

Name:

Kaya.. In case you missed it the first few times.

What do you want to be when you grow up:

 An author.. and yes, teen novel style. And no, not like Twilight.

Who are your top three lady heroes? 

I know we had this conversation.. did we mean super heroes, or ladies we looked up to? The consensus was the latter. Therefore, my lady heroes are super cheesy, and aren’t famous people, I know the names of like two celebrities tops. So mine are my mom and my Grandmothers. My  mom is a super brilliant and passionate lady,who is going back to school to follow her dreams. My grandmothers are very different, but both amazing, strong, and caring women. They have families who love them, and I can only hope that I encounter the same later in life.

Who is your celebrity crush:

Tilda guessed for me “probably someone skinny.. and British” and she wasn’t too far–but the truth is: Irish. Robert Sheehan, and Aidan Turner (As John Mitchell in Being Human). Two sexy, dark haired, Irish men who have mastered the panty-dropping smile. 

What would your superpower be:

 Mind reading. That way there’s no bull-shitting and second guessing people’s intention.

When you were little, what did you want to be? 

Pretty sure I once told my parents I wanted to be an Apple… besides that a Teacher. 

What’s the best book you’ve read so far this year? Ever? 

This year definitely the Mime Order by Samantha Shannon. My jealously over her storytelling skills runs DEEP. Ever? The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson. It still has my brain turning, and my heart aching all these years later. 

What makes you feel afraid? 

Losing my creativity, and getting old and bland. Falling into the monotony of everyday life and forgetting how to think, imagine, and live. This is a long standing fear of mine, for as long as I can remember.

What’s your most embarrassing childhood memory? 

… Do I really have to come up with one? The only thing I can think of, that I dread to this day, was when I was trying to flirt with this guy I liked, and I thought it’d be funny/cute to poke him with a hot glue gun. Why? I don’t know. Overall bad idea. I mean, who wants to be burned with a hot glue gun? No one. No matter how kinky the shit you are into, no one likes that.

Who was your first crush?

 I don’t know why I remember this, but my first child-crush was on this guy named Ian (although I don’t even remember if this was actually his name). I remember he had a distinctly rectangular head, and I was fascinated by this. Because of his rectangular head, I decided I liked him. It didn’t get very far though. Times were tough for a girl in Kindergarten. 

Who would win in a fight? A Taco or Grilled Cheese Sandwich:

Tacos have harder shells, but yet, they are fragile. So I will be setting my money on grilled cheese sandwiches and their somewhat soggy, yet flexible strength. I mean really, if you hit a taco with a grilled cheese, which one would break?

If you had to be on a reality TV show, which one would you choose?

I HATE THIS. If you know me, I don’t watch reality TV. I don’t even know what reality TV shows are out there?? Does the Next Step count? As a trainwreck Mockumentary? If so, that one. That is what I would like to be on.

Who has influenced you the most?

Real-talk. I don’t know. As lamely introspective as I am, I don’t know why I am the way I am. I’m going to have to say books, and for better or for worse, my highschool friends.

Favourite colour:

My thing, my whole life, has been purple. Although I have a not-so-recent obsession with Burgundy/Maroon/Wine colours, so I may have to claim that as my favourite colour. But not to hurt any feelings, I’ll say Purplegundy.

Favourite ice cream: 

Salted Caramel. Point blank.
