14. Change one of your personality traits which would you choose?
Hmm…whatever personality trait contributes to my constant procrastination and lack of motivation. 
22. Be any height, which would you choose?
I’m currently 5’5 and I’d prefer to be an inch and a half taller, that way I’d be the tallest female in my family.

Living or Dead? Living I’d love to meet Angelina Jolie and Dead I’d love to meet Jane Austen.

Canada. I’m happy in this big cold place.

It’s so valuable to be able to see moving images of clothing from a time before motion pictures were really a thing.

SIGUR ROS RELEASED A NEW ALBUM IN JUNE 2013?! HOW AM I ONLY FINDING ABOUT THIS NOW ?! I AM A BAD FAN

If a Disney princess had night terrors, the story of Sansa Stark might be what woke her up screaming. Often overlooked in favor of her killer kid sister, the elder Stark sibling has had all her illusions about the world, and her safety in it, shattered. But her quiet, innate political shrewdness and emotional strength have enabled her to survive in a royal court that likely would have cost every other member of her family their heads. She’s the show’s best-kept secret. [ x ]
