1. Are you named after anyone?ย ย 

Ok since this is the internet I’m not sure if it is safe to give away my full name willy-nilly. However, that being said since I DO like you peeps so much I will at least tell you my first name. ๐Ÿ˜› It’s Miguel, and yes I AM INDEED named after somebody and that person is non other than my father. I’m personally proud of that fact and you know what, if I ever have a son I’ll probs wanna name him the same too. Keeping this whole same name thing going on for at least another generation. ๐Ÿ˜€

 

2. When was the last time you cried?ย 

Last time was yesterday. Seriously. ๐Ÿ˜… I was watching this movie from Thailand(first time doing that btw) called Friendship. I had seen the cover/poster for it previously and had thought it looked nice. Then later when I looked into it further I noticed it was in the Romance, School Life, and Comedy genres, all of which are my faves thus pushing me to see it. But little did I know when it came to it that it was really a tragedy in disguise. It left me feeling so down. ๐Ÿ˜ญย It’s a good “coming of age” type movie but man how I wish it didn’t end the way it did because I had been having so much fun with the characters throughout.

Here is a trailer. Sorry about the quality but it’s the best I could find:

 

 

3. Do you have kids?

Yes, I have 12

 

 

 

Just kidding. Wonder if I got any of you with that. ๐Ÿ˜› hahaha I have zero kids.

 

4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?ย 

Yes I think I would because I pretty much like to befriend everybody.

 

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?

Not a lot but I certainly do use it a little bit. Ok maybe slightly more than a little bit but then again who doesn’t?

6. Will you ever bungee-jump?

Nope. Next Question…

 

7. Whatโ€™s your favorite cereal?ย 

123.jpg

Frosted Flakes. Why? Because their Gr-r-reat!… “mic drop* ……*picks up mic* sorry forgot we got more questions. Moving on!

 

8. Whatโ€™s the first thing you notice about people?

344.jpg

Feature wise, probably their eyes. Personality wise, how open they are. I tend to get a long well with most people but the people who I love the most are those who are the most open minded. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

9. What is your eye colour?ย 

Brown

 

10. Scary movie or happy endings?

Happy! Happy! Happy! I like scary movies too but generally speaking I watch things to enjoy myself and have fun. Kinda hard to do that for me if all the main characters where to die by the end, which is something that happens too often in scary movies…ย  However I’m extra happy when I can catch a scary movie that can pull of a happy ending!

11. Favorite smells?

IDK about this one. Maybe peppermint?

 

12. Summer or winter?

Oh this is easy. Winter wins easily hands down. I just love the way snow looks and even though I’ve only witnessed it once in person I am obsessed with it. Plus I prefer the cold over the heat too. Cuz when it’s cold you can always just add more layers. However when it’s hot, there is only so much you can take off…..Specially in public unless you want the authorities to be called on you. ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿš“

 

13. Computer or television?

Obviously a Computer. It’s pretty much a TV but with the world wide web fully at your disposal. Basically everything you can watch on TV you can watch on a computer. But everything you can do on a computer you can’t do on a TV.

14. Whatโ€™s the furthest youโ€™ve ever been from home?

Sadly I have only ever made it as far as neighboring cities and never let’s say to some place cool like Paris. Hopefully one day I will get a chance though, to travel all over the world. Until then my main goal is to make at least one friend from every country through the TV I mean Computer. And I am at least lucky to live in L.A. where there are people from every country you can name of already here!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

 

15. Do you have any special talents?

My special talent if anything would be my deep curiosity. I literally try everything and anything and am constantly finding new things to consume my life. I wouldn’t say I have mastered many things but i do have basic knowledge on a wide range of topics and skills thanks to it. But if that wasn’t the answer you were looking for, I can also drop a sick beatbox. ๐Ÿ˜›

 

16. Where were you born?

Los Angeles, CA

 

17. What are your hobbies?

I like film, tv, and music. At least those are the short answers anyways. To be more specific my main loves are Asian Dramas, Kpop, British Crime Series, Anime, and of course American Cinema in general. I could list of tons more things and be even more specific but that would need a whole post in of its self. Instead here some examples of my latest obsessions.

First on the drama side of things, Go Back Couple is my newest pick up. It’s a show about a married couple who hates each other in the present but whom both get sent back in time to when they were in their 20s. The intrigue in the drama is in whether they can re-fall in love in the past or if they will decide to go their separate ways. It’s got a mix of humor and heartfelt poignant moments.

 

For Kpop I could say BTS but that wouldn’t be a surprise so instead I’ll go with an even more indie group calledย Oh My Jewel. They were recently put on my radar by a friend who was happy to see a Russian member in a Kpop group. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s the first time ever I think.

 

As for British Crime Shows, I’m catching up on series 3 of Broadchurch. If you haven’t watched at least the first series you must. It was one of the best pieces of Television I have ever watched.ย  All the characters were interesting to explore and it had a genuine mystery that kept me engaged and guessing.Should still be on Netflix. Plus I don’t think any show could ever go wrong hiring David Tennant. #MyDoctor you Whovians will get it…

 

Then for anime I haven’t started watching anything new yet unfortunately but I’ll let you peeps know when I do. As for American movies I do plan to go watch The Justice League later this week. Can’t wait to see the Blackpink MV cameo. ๐Ÿ˜›

 

18. Do you have any pets?

Not at the moment no. If I were to get a new pet I would probably go with a bunny this time around. A Mini Lop probably.

 

19. Favorite movie?

Ooh to name a favorite movie. I don’t think I can name just one but I’ll give it a try. Just keep in mind this answer will probs change every time you ask me. Also the movie I’m about to pick is my favorite but not really what I’d consider the best ever. It’s called Tremors. I’m talking about the first one in the franchise that came out in 1990. Now I hadn’t been born yet so I didn’t see it in theaters back then but I did grow up with it as a kid. I remember catching it on TV a few times until I eventually got it on DVD. It’s one of those monster movies except with this one they mixed humor and horror. With most of the emphasis on the humor I think. I remember thinking the premise was cool. An underground monster that hunts by sound. If y’all have never checked it out you are missing out on a gem.

P.S. Gotta love Kevin Bacon

20. Do you have any siblings?

I have two step sisters who live out of the country. Not sure what else to say because I don’t wanna be putting their business out there. All you need to know is I love them.ย  ^___^

 

21. What do you want to be when you grow up?

Successful! I wanna have a sustainable income while also having a happy family life too. I think it’s what we all want in the end right? Don’t need to be crazy rich or be a celebrity or anything like that. โ˜บ

 

Well that concludes this post. Wonder if you learned anything worthwhile. ๐Ÿ˜… Anyways I’ll be sure to post similar kinds of posts in the future from time to time to share more of myself to you lovely guys and gals. With that, I’ll see you again later.

    • Did you hear that they are trying to reboot Tremors as a TV show with Kevin Bacon coming back. There’s been word on it for a long time but a couple months ago I saw it pop up again on big news sites. Last I heard it may be on the SyFy channel.

      • I heard that, but I have been hearing it for ao long now that I doubt if that will ever happen. It’s a project that was planned for last year, but I wonder if it’s ever going to hopen. Still, I’m keeping my fingers crossed. It would be really cool to have a follow up, especially if Kevin Bacon himself is involved๐Ÿ˜€

    • Oh yeah I got on board with Doctor Who since it came back in 2005. Eccleston coulda been my Doctor but sadly I felt we didn’t get enough of him. He was fantastic though. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I still keep up with it and am very much looking forward to the Christmas Special. I saw the preview for it on YouTube and it’s looking to be a whopper!
