Questions from TheWorldIsNotAgainstMe

1.Favourite song?
I feel like this is a very difficult question to answer, but I guess the one song I always find myself going back to is probably When, by Elysian Fields.

2. Most embarrassing moment?
Hum… I’ve had quite a few, but one day last month I was in class and had to make voices (it was a voice class…) and no sound came out. I was just standing there with everyone staring at me. I felt so very dumb… (a word quite on point too haha).

3. Celebrity crush?
Why are all these questions sooooo hard? Ok, so my male celebrity crush is definitely Reeve Carney, because he must be the most beautiful (yes, beautiful and not attractive or handsome) man I have ever seen. His face is pretty much perfect ^^. My female celebrity crush would be… perhaps Lily Collins. She’s so very cute and I love her Instagram account. It’s always creative and thoughtful!

4. If you could change one thing about the world, what would you change?
If I could change one thing, I think I would make it a kinder place. I truly believe that if people were simply kind to one another instead of constantly judging, criticizing and competing, the world would be a much better place. I know it’s a little cliché and naive, but I stand by my choice.

5. If you could spend a day as someone else, whom would you chose(and why)?
Not sure… But I guess I’d like to be a person in a different country, like India, Japan or Ethiopia so I could see how they view the world from an intellectual, cultural, relational, social… point of view so I could broaden my horizons.

6. Do you believe in aliens? Why?
It seems strange to me that we should be alone in the universe, but then it’s hard to know. I do believe in fairies and sprites though!

7. The happiest moment in your life?
Strangely, I would say it was the day when my best friend took me to the sea in the middle of a snow storm. I was having a very hard time and to be near the sea on that very moment lifted the veil of my sorrow. I could have stayed there for hours.

8. If you could watch only one movie for the rest of your lives, which movie would you pick?
Bright Star. No hesitation. John Keats is my favourite poet and the film is so aesthetically beautiful that I don’t think I could ever get tired of it.

9. Current obsession?
The little cat ears my little brother bought for me. I’m wearing them all the time when I am home haha ^^

10. One fact about you which others may find surprising?
I think the lyrics to Justin Bieber’s songs Love Yourself and Sorry are actually quite deep 😀

11. Why did you start blogging?
My best friend told me it would be a good idea for me to start blogging and I am glad I listened to her, because the community is awesome and it helps me be more consistent with writing and painting.

Questions from The Passionate Dreamer:

1.Dream job
Being a writer and painter, and I mean someone who can actually earn a living doing so. It’s been my dream ever since I was a little girl so… maybe one day?

2. What would you do if you accidently come across your ex?
I only have two and I see them all the time. They’re my friends, so I guess just be friendly?

3. What does your name mean?
My first name is Laure-Hélène, which means “laurel tree” and “sunshine.” Quite flattering I guess 🙂

4. What makes you happy the most?
To see the people I love thrive and be happy in their lives.

5. If you were 100% sure that you won’t fail, what would you do?
I would stop working and become a full time artist and writer. For sure.

6. If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what would it be?
25. You are still young and full of energy, but you are more mature than you were when you were younger, both physically and mentally and you still have room for improvement too!

7. Do you have any regrets in life? If yes, what?
Not really. Everything happens for a reason and there’s no time for regrets. They only make you bitter.

8. What is your zodiac sign?
Aquarius and lovin’ it ^^

9. What kind of people irritates you the most?
People who assume they are better than everybody else and despise others. And hypocrites. I like honesty and modesty, even though saying that may make me sound conceited…. I hope it doesn’t.

10. Do you believe in luck?
I do. Sometimes, things happen without any logical explanation… You just get lucky.

11.Which celebrity do you admire the most and why?
I don’t know… Probably Toni Morrison. Her novels and works in general are very insightful, beautiful and spread essential messages around the world. She’s the bomb!

  1. 1. What are your zodiac and chinese zodiac signs?
    Virgo and the snake.

    2.What is the aim of your blog?
    To connect with people who are passionate about the same sorts of things that I’m passionate about, to share myself with the world, and to learn more about those who choose to stop by.

    3.If you could be a magical creature, which one would you be?
    A wizard!

    4.What is your favourite book or who is your favourite writer?
    Too many to list, as it really depends on my mood, what sort of genre is interesting to me at a given moment, or what have you. Off the top of my head, George Orwell, Stephen King, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Dosteovsky, David Foster Wallace, Cormac McCarthy , Kafka, and so on…

    5.Do you believe in love?
    Considering the amazing love I feel for Veronica, and the depth of the love I have for so many family members and friends, I really can’t imagine NOT believing in love. But also, I would go so far as to say that love is the trait that most defines human beings. Love is at the center of human existence, for both better and worse; love has spurred all of humanity’s greatest downfalls, but it has also been the prime motivation for all of our greatest triumphs. Without love, we would not be human.

    6.What is your favourite flower?
    After being with Veronica for all of these years, I can’t help but say sunflowers.

    7.If you could visit any country, which one would it be?
    All of them! Too many to list. Right now, since we’ve been talking about the South Pacific, the countries in that general region are the ones that are interesting me.

    8.Hot cocoa, tea or coffee?
    We all know how I answer this one. I enjoy tea and hot cocoa, but compared to coffee, well…

    9.Would you prefer to live by the sea or in the mountains?
    I’ve seen this question posed a lot as a sort of personality test, and it’s interesting. I love both, but there’s something magical about being near the rolling water, something that reminds me of the fact that I’m on Earth, connected to every other part of Earth, staring out into the same horizon that so many others are staring into at this very moment. Can’t beat it.

    10.What is your chocolate of choice?
    Darker the better.

    11.How would you define art?
    Art, to me, is the creative expression of someone intending to make a statement that they are passionate about. Whether they succeed or fail is irrelevant as to whether their creation is art or not. A new scientific theory is as much art as a drawing is, provided that both are created with passion. To me, what separates art from something “not-art” isn’t a question of quality, as I’d say that bad art is STILL art — no, it’s a question intention. Basically, if a piece was creation with intention to SAY something, then it is probably art.

    • I loved your answers!!!! Thank you for taking the time to write them 🙂 The references to Veronica, of course, really warm my heart, as you two always remind me of all the love that’s to be found in the world whenever I am down. And your thoughts on art were very much on point ^^ oh and… the sea ❤
