  6. Mission Impossible and the Dick Van Dyke show are two shows I enjoy too! Based on the list of shows you like, you might like to try the first 2 seasons of The Man from Uncle (later seasons deteriorate greatly in quality). It's available on the Darewall and a few episodes are at Daily Motion, but I don't think it's on Youtube.

  9. How fun this was, Ashley! I answered the 11 original questions as well as the ones that you asked. Some of the questions definitely made me stop and think. :)

  10. I love this post! From what you just wrote, you sound like someone who I'd hang out with :) And I understand where people are coming from when they said you looked European. Lol. You could pass as English.

    1. What is your favorite book?
    Well, if I had to choose from so many... 'Jacob Have I Loved' by Katherine Paterson- a coming of age story set in the 1960s about a twin who feels out shined by her sister, and 'Monster Blood Tattoo' by D.M. Cornish- by an Australian author. The prose is really good, even if it is a book made for teenagers! It's the perfect amount of floweriness! What Shakespeare should be, but toned down so that we can understand! Haha! Please read these if you haven't ;)

    2. Where did you last travel too?
    The U.S. I stayed for just over two weeks, and wish I had stayed longer. Love it there so much that when I returned home I was sort of feeling a bit discontent. Hope I can live there one day!

    3. Favorite beauty product?

    4. What is your biggest dream?
    To do something that will go down in history. Something good, but it doesn't matter if it's big or small. Just to end up in history books would be cool.

    5. Are you a tea or coffee person?
    Both. Tea when I'm cold. Coffee when I'm tired and cold.

    6. What is your favorite season?
    Winter because the cold makes us more thankful for the sun. :)

    My dad's music! Which is mostly 1970's folk-rock stuff. But my favourites are Beatles, America, and Josh Groban.

    8. Do you enjoy watching sports? If so, what is your favorite sport[s] & teams?
    Tennis. Fav player is Pat Rafter. Also, watched a baseball game when I visited NYC. Was very exciting, and I would probably be a fan if I were American!

    9. Favorite author of all time?
    O. Henry, for his witty, short stories.

    10. Favorite summertime activity?
    Reading and drawing.

    11. What is something you hope to learn this year?
