First of all, I have to thank dear Chris @readbychris for tagging me to do this! It’s always nice to get to know people better, and these posts are fun to do. So, let’s start, shall we?
Nicknames: I don’t have a nickname… Irena is not that common name so I guess there was no need for one. It really bothered me as a kid, but I’m fine with it now.
Birthday: April 24th
Star Sign: Taurus
Occupation: Currently, trying to pass my teacher’s exam. XD I’m an English and Croatian teacher.
Hair colour: It’s red now, but naturally I have that weird colour that’s not blonde or brown, but mostly grey. Mousy. XD
Hair length: About 10cm below my collarbones.
Eye colour: Grey-blue. Sometimes even a little bit green. It changes.
Best feature: Ummm… I’ll go with my eyes, I guess…
Braces: Oh, I had them for YEARS!
Piercings: None. I don’t even have my ears pierced. I pierced them when I was a child and there were some complications so now I’m scared of it and everything similar, such as tattoos! The holes are completely closed now.
Tattoos: I’d really like to have one! I think tattoos can be gorgeous. But, as I said earlier, I’m very scared of it. Maybe I’ll be brave enough someday… Now, I’d never get anything this huge, but I think this looks soooo lovely (link):
Right or left: Is this a political question? 😛 Yeah, bad joke, anyway I write with my right hand (if that’s what I’m supposed to answer).
Holiday: I used to go on summer vacation every year with my parents, and I was very small on the first one so I don’t really remember it. XD We are lucky to live in a coastal town, and several beautiful islands are very close so it was easy to travel there and enjoy.
Best Friend: My brother was my first best friend. I was very sucky at making friends (and still am).
Award: Well, we had those “commendations” in primary school. Everyone who had As in all subjects got one at the end of the school year. Does this count? XD
Sport: I’m horrible at sports. Always have been. For a year I went to this kid’s club where we played all kinds of sports but I didn’t really like it so I gave up. In my defence, I’m doing yoga now. XD
Concert: I didn’t really go to concerts as a child. The only concert worth mentioning was the Iron Maiden concert, in 2008. It was so surprising that they came to our town (Split is not a really well-known location, if a band comes to Croatia, they usually hold the concert in the capital, Zagreb). Last summer they came back and it was as great as the first time. 😀
TV shows: Unpopular opinion time: I don’t like to watch a lot of TV shows. Yeah, I’m weird. The thing is, they usually last too long and start to drag, and then I get disappointed… I do watch some, of course. My all-time favourite is Black Sails. Love that one to pieces! Nowadays I like Gotham. I liked Arrow but it’s not that good anymore. The one I really can’t wait to come back is Jessica Jones. 🙂
Colour: Black. I know it’s not really a colour, but I don’t care. 😉
Song: Anything by Emilie Autumn. She’s the best. Then: White Flag by The Romanovs, Pain Looks Good on You by London After Midnight, Sleepwalking by The Crüxshadows, The First by Pink Turns Blue and many others. Oh, and the entire Queen of the Damned soundtrack! So vampire-ish! 😀
Restaurant: I don’t think I have a favourite…
Shop: Any nice bookshop. 😉 I don’t have a favourite clothing shop, I usually hate most of the stuff in the stores. XD
Books: I usually name Frankenstein as my favourite, but really, there are so many great books…
Shoes: I feel the best in a pair of black boots.
Feeling: Eh… Fine. 😛
Single or Taken: Taken. My boyfriend is my best friend. ❤
Eating: Nothing. I’m thinking about going to the kitchen and having an apple. Actually, I’ll do it. Just wait for a moment, I’ll be back straight away….
Thinking About: Maybe I should’ve cut this apple in smaller pieces.
Watching: Nothing. I’m writing a post. XD
Wearing: Sweatpants and a shirt. Just regular “home” clothes. XD
Want Children: Not really…
Want to be married: I want to be with my boyfriend, marriage doesn’t mean much to me.
Careers in mind: I would love to do something in publishing, but that’s almost impossible here. I would also like to study more, get an phD.
Where you want to live: Travel everywhere, live… Well, I don’t know. There are several places, but sometimes I also want to stay here.
DO YOU BELIEVE IN:
Miracles: I believe in happy coincidences.
Love at first sight: No. You can’t love someone based on how that person looks, which is the only thing you know about them at first sight. Someone can draw your attention, and that can later turn into love, but only after you really get to know each other.
Ghosts: No. I will get scared if you tell me ghost stories, though. XD
Aliens: Yes. The universe is sooo big, I think there must be some other living beings out there.
Soul Mates: Depends how you define it… If you call someone you’re really close to your soul mate, that’s fine. I don’t believe in “predestined to find each other” kind of soul mates.
Heaven: No… I wish there was something after death, but I can’t make myself believe in it.
Kissing on the first date: Well, it does exist, doesn’t it? XD
Yourself: Oh, I really wish I believed in myself more… I’m not a very confident person.
And in the end, I tag these wonderful people (and everyone else who want to do the tag!)
