  1. Woah, I dream of having my own bookstore too! I’m actually selling books as an extra source of income. I’d save some money and go to the nearest bookfair to buy books and sell them for a profit.
    Does being a professional panhandler and homeless person count as a weird job? Hahaha, just kidding.
    Favorite color is pink. Yeah, I know, even my daughter got surprised. I used to hate pink, now it’s my favorite color.
    And despite being an extreme metal guy, for some reason, I love Britney’s Sometimes and Taylor’s Blank Space.
    Great list, and thank you!
    Cheers! 🙂

  2. Wow— nine Janet Jackson concerts??? That’s impressive!

    I am totally with you on your bookstore plan! I still love books and stationery.. I super love writing and journaling the ‘hard’ way…

      • The pen that I always look for is Sarasa .5 and journals, anything that doesn’t bleed through… I love leather bounds similar to that of Ryan Philippe’s journal in Cruel Intentions 😅 How about you?

      • I don’t have a particular pen, but I notice that tend to grab gel ink or Bic pens. For journals I like Rhodia. Now I’m curious…I have to watch Cruel Intentions and look for his notebook. So specific and special ❤️

      • Hahaha, yes go watch it! It played a super big part in the movie!

        I love gel pens too for decorating… and for the regular ones, yes, Bic is awesome as well as it’s mech pens…

  3. 1) I sold books books door to door my sophomore year of college and drive cross country to sell books in Rochester MN
    2) I was in a foreign exchange program to Japan in the 7th grade
    3) While in Japan, I petted a deer 🦌 that lived on the grounds of the Naga temple and got a real bad rash. I then was rushed to the hospital get a tetanus shot.
    4) I got cut climbing the bathroom counter as a child and had to get stitches on my ankle.
    5) I crashed my bike on the way to 7-11 to play Street Fighter and still walked
    my bike all the way there with a bloody leg. I purchased bandaids with half my quarters and used the rest to play Street Fighter.
