I'm on Picsart now, and Tumblr. Just look for me.
Hello, after reading hundreds and hundreds of amazing stories on this site, I started my own adventure in the English language. :) People seem to enjoy it and I realized I had lots of profile look ups in the last months. I think it's time you get to see something other than a blank bio.
It's really hard to write something about yourself, your family, friends and loved ones should do that but I'll give it a try. Feel free to run away, screaming if it sucks.
I thought some random/fun questions google asked me were easier and more entertaining than me just writing something boring down. Lets see, I'm pretty curious what crap I come up with.
Q Were you named after anyone? - Yes I was. My pregnant mum named me after a book she read. Yvette. She wanted me to be as strong and brave as this little 12 year old hooker from the 17 Hundreds. Polish people tend to put an A at the end of a name, so out of Yvette became Iwetta. (Second name is Magdalena, I guess she didn't have much hope ;) )
Q When was the last time you cried? - Tricky. I'm a sap, always crying when I watch movies. But crying because I was sad? Don't like that. I'm an angry crier, romantic crier but no sad crier. When I'm really mad, furious, I get tears. :)
Q Do you have kids? - Man, google is original. I didn't give birth to a child but I am raising with my ex girlfriend her kid. I've been in his life since he could remember, I couldn't just pretend he isn't mine any more because we separated.
Q If you were another person would you be friends with you? - Haha, I guess? I'd probably be my worst nightmare but my good qualities would keep me with me. That sounds sooo weird.
Q Do you use sarcasm a lot? - I speak it fluently. ;)
Q Would you Bungee Jump?- Already did. Twice.
Q Do you untie your shoes when you take them off? - Wearing Chucks, I'll have to say yes. At least at the beginning.
Q Who do you miss the most?- Heavy. A very special friend, I miss her since almost 7 years already.
Q What is the first thing you notice about people?- In person? Their voices. I'm a huge voices addict. Then (girls) their backs. Really, backs. Not behinds!! ;) their eyes and lips after that the hands, teeth and so on.
Q Red or Pink?- Red of course.
Q What is the least favourite thing about you? -uh, from my POV? My mind.
Q Rolling Stones or Beatles?- pfff, Rolling Stones. No question. The Beatles are for the past what backstreet boys, N'sync, New Kids on the block ect. were for the 90's.
Q What is the farthest you've been from home?- Well, I travelled around a lot, seen so much in my life already I guess home is boring to me. Then I'd have to say I've been in love. That's the farthest from normal, boring and routine I can think of. The best place.
Q Do you have a special talent?- I play guitar and drums, I draw, I take photographs, I write, I'm an artist but that's no special talents because a lot of people do all that. So it's nothing special any more.
Q What's your worst/best memory of high school and why?- Finally leaving it.
Q What was your favourite pet you had as a child and why?- I always had animals, horses, dogs, rats. But my absolute favourite is Pumba, my Jack Russell Terrier mix. He was fat as a puppy when I got him, so I called him Pumba. I trained him on my own and he was the best educated god. I have it written. Once, a cop stopped me because we were walking without a leesh. I had to pay a fee (Germany) and had to go to dog school. On the first day, the woman was a huge bitch and mean, told me that I should have brought him sooner bla bla. Then she made me walk the difficult tricky tests with him, do the tricks and he aced it. Better than the ones she had had in her school for months. I was sooo proud.
Q If you could get rid of all the songs from a particular singer, whose would you delete and why? - All the wannabe Disney singers. Britney, Justin Beaber, Selena, Hillary. Really, that's no music. Highschool musical “Stars”, Glee, god I could go on and on. Miley Cyrus is an exception. This girl can actually sing and she tries with all her might to get free of this Disney cliché.
Q Who or what inspires you and why?- My mother because …...ha, joke. She's awesome but lets be honest here. Janis Joplin, Joan Jett, Amy Winehous, Andy Warehole. This were the people who fought for our freedom in a time were it was uncalled for. The women, they were trying to fight for their right to act the same as men in a horrible industry. They were being themselves, even when everybody wanted to silence them. Andy Warehole always did the opposite he was told to, with his head high.
Q What is the most rewarding experience you have had and what made it so?- Staying with my ex with the knowledge of my life completely changing. Being brave to love that child like my own because having him in my life completes me, I couldn't imagine where I'd be without this kid. Probably long dead because of continuing my life as it was.
Q If you knew today was your last day on Earth, how would you spend it and why?- I'd go out and buy myself every drug I could get my hands on and party so hard I wouldn't realize it happening. I wouldn't go around and see everyone I love, I think that would kill me and them. I'd try to forget. Of course if I was about to go to Mars, The Moon or somewhere up there I'd visit everyone :)
Q Favourite famous person?- wow. That one is really hard. I'd have to say Joan Jett. Since I first saw her on a festival it was at when I was 12 I was impressed and hooked.
Q favourite sound?- That is weird. Haha. A guitar. By a person? Their voice. Of course only if I like it.
Q What book are you reading right now? Hunger games. Like the rest of the world. ;)
Q Cake?- usually, no. I don't like sweet stuff but I love Tiramisu.
Q Hugs or Kisses?- Depends who with. Friends, family? Hugs. Girlfriend, random girl in a bar? Kisses. Strangers? Nothing. A handshake maybe. Or a wave.
Q Computer or Television? - Ha, I always have my laptop connected on my Tv so I guess it's tv. I don't watch television programs, I always watch it either on DVD or on the Internet because Germany is way too slow with airing stuff and I don't watch stupid talk shows or game shows.
Q eye colour? - Changes from green to blue, grey. It actually changes completely. Either completely dark blue, light green or grey. It's fascinating for others when they realize it for the first time.
Q Do you wear contacts?- I should. I have them somewhere buried under lots of crap. I always forgot to and then I just stopped. But they weren't coloured ;)
Q favourite food?- Meat balls. My mums cooking. Polish kitchen. Spicey stuff. I eat everything really, as long as it has no visible veins, fat, blood, gross stuff.
Q Scary movies or happy endings?- Scary movies. Happy endings, I like them when the movie isn't totally over the top. I hate that Hollywood cliché crap, makes me more mad than happy. Like, sometimes I wonder why on earth they act like this? No normal person would. Makes it unrealistic, makes it stupid for me. I only hate unrealistic stuff in romantic movies, sci fi HAS to be unrealistic. Well, how do we know what's really unrealistic or not?
Q Last movie you watched?- real movie? Snow white and the huntsman I think.
Q Summer or winter? Depends where I am. If I want to snowboard, then winter. But only for vacation. Other than that always summer. But I also enjoy having all four seasons.
Q Hair colour?- changed a lot in my teenager years but now it's bottle blonde for years.
Q Fav. Sport to watch and or play?- Always football. I am European, so FOOTBALL is Americans soccer ;)
Q Fav smells?- Dunno. Like, perfumes? The original Armani. I guess I like coconut, or berries.
Q What are you listening to right now?- Big bang Theory is on, so it's running in the background.
Q What colour are your shoes?- Ahm, right now I don't have shoes on. But I wear Chucks, and their really in all colours. From black to pink, green, yellow, brown. They have to be, right? Other than Chucks, I think dark shoes. Never liked bright colours.
Q Fav music genre?- Rock, real rock and REAL Indie, not that mainstream moneymaking sell out wannabe Indie everyone likes now.
Q talks shows or documentaries?- Documentaries, hands down.
Q Age? 24. Will be turning 25 in a few months. God, when did I get that old?
Q If you could take a trip in a time travel machine and you could go only one time, one way where would you go?- I'd go to the beginning of the humans, I would love to know how we got here because I really think evolution is bullshit. There are still freaking monkeys that had as much time as we did and they didn't 'evolute' into something else. Humanity is a race with amnesia. We forgot who we are.
Q do you prefer comedy books or philosophical? - Philosophical, of course.
Q Would you say that you are fun?- That I am. :) I make people feel comfortable, make them laugh and let them cry if they need to.
Q do you have a lot of friends?- no. I KNOW many people who think that we are friends, but someone I go out partying once a month isn't a friend. Or someone I met a few times. I have a special circle of friends I would do a lot for. Not die for, because I grew up and know that that's bullshit but I would go out of my way to help if I could and I would fight right beside them if they needed me. (metaphorically.)
Q were you popular in school?- yes, I always was. But I got to say, it is a different popularity than the American standard. We don't have or care for Prom queens and kings, home coming balls and cheerleaders. I was a rebel, musician and never long with the same people because I got bored and the kids were pulled to me. I didn't care much about that but I was pretty popular. I think it was their imagination of freedom I represented. Making them do risky and fun stuff, bringing their self esteem up.
Q are you a honest person?- yes. Always got in trouble for that but growing up I learned when it's best to keep my mouth shut. I don't lie, I just don't say anything or am brutally honest.
Q which instrument is your fav?- right now? my Fender Strat and Gibson Melody Maker guitars. It changes. Tomorrow I could love my drum set more. Who knows.
Q Iphone or Android?- Android.
Q Pepsi or Coke?- Mezzo Mix (coke fanta mix) or coke.
Q are you gay, straight, bi, curious, tran?- I am pretty gay.
All right. That's a bit about me. I bet you are freaking happy I finally finished so yay. Sorry, but it was sooo much fun. Try it!
