23. Have you ever gone to the “dark side”?  I’m not saying I’ve been an angel for all my life, but I wouldn’t go as far as saying that I gone to the “dark side” either, so I guess I’ve always been somewhere in between.

24. What shirt are you wearing right now?  It’s 11 am, I’m still wearing my pyjamas and that would be a grey shirt with Snoopy and “Born To Sleep” written on it.

25. What’s important about a bed to you? Like type of sheets, size or whatever. I don’t really care as long as it’s comfortable. Of course to reach a certain level of comfort, the bed would have to be soft (not as a waterbed though) have a lot of pillows and a fluffy blanket.

33. Last thing that made you laugh? My brother. We wore both playing Piano Tiles 2 and I was winning.

34. Best toy as a child? An infant boy doll I got for Christmas when I was 3 or 4. He has a very cute round face and blonde hair.

“Sunday Stealing” No°11: “The Movie Nut’s Meme”

For rules and/or information click hereCheers to all of us thieves!!!


What was you first movie-going experience without your parents? The furthest I can go is Bratz The Movie, which I watched with my cousin at the cinema.

Do you still buy DVDs or Blu Rays (or do you just stream them)? Yes, although not many and not very often. The last one I bought was The Addams Family Values a week ago. Other than that I want to have a physical copy of most of my favourite movies, preferable some kind of deluxe edition. So far I’ve got the Back To The Future series and Grease.

What is your guilty pleasure movie? What about it works for you? Cruel Intentions, but I have no clue why. I’m still trying to figure it out.

You have compiled a list of your top 100 movies. Which movies do you like, but would not make the list? 100 is a lot and from the 500 movies I watched I know I liked at least 400 of them. I realised the easiest answer is 50 Shades of Grey. I admit I liked it, or at least parts of it, but it would definitely not make it to the top 100.

Which movie(s) do you compulsively watch over and over again? What makes it so great? Re-watching movies is not my thing. Beside Titanic, which I had to watch for the third time (from which only once entirely), I don’t think there is a movie I watched more than 1. However I want to re-watch the Harry Potter and Pirates of the Caribbean series again.

Classic(s) you’re embarrassed to admit you haven’t seen yet? Casablanca, The Godfather, Alien, Predator, The Breakfast Club, Pulp Fiction, Fight Club, Star Wars, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Indiana Jones, James Bond…. 

Do you have any movie posters hanging on your wall? If yes, which ones and why? ‘Demetra checks her walls as she is so forgetful’ Titanic, Percy Jackson, Pirates of the Caribbean, Hunger Games, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Monsters University and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. I put them up simply because I like the movies and were among the only movie posters I had. 

Tell us about a movie that you are passionate about. It’s hard to choose just one, so I hope that next time I’ll be able to promote another great movie. This time my answer is Dead Poets Society. The way Robin Williams plays his role and the message he transmits got a very important place in my heart.

What is a movie you vow to never watch? Why? First of all that is discrimination. You should always give everyone a chance, movies of people. However there are a couple of movies that I’m not prepared to watch, The Godfather for example. I’m not 100% I’ll really like it and its soooo long..

Tell us about a movie that literally left you speechless. Inception. If you don’t count the couple of ‘what’s I had at the end, it definitely left me speechless.

What’s a movie that you always recommend? Jumanji. You thought I’d give you a Robin Williams break. ha-ha-ha. You thought wrong.

Who is an actor you always watch, no matter how crappy the movie? Robin Williams! And there is no crappy movie in which he plays. The moment he gets a role, the movie cannot be crappy.

Who is an actor you don’t get the appeal for? Why don’t you like them? I can’t think of any present ones, but I used to don’t get the appeal for Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hiddleston and I don’t know what was wrong with me. Would Matt Smith count? I never really liked him as a Doctor and still don’t.

Who is an actor, living or dead, you’d love to meet? Why do they intrigue you? Robin Williams. I wish I’d have the chance to tell him what a wonderful and inspiring person he was and of course thank him.

Sexiest actor/actress you’ve seen. (Picture required!) Chris Pine

OK, you are casting a movie, pick four or five actors you’d hire to be in it and why we’d love them together.

Robert Downey Jr., Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston and  Johnny Depp. Can I please have that?

Who are your favorite actor pairing of all time? Robin Williams and Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting

Have you ever watched movies from a decade that was before you were born? If so, which decade is your favorite? Born in 1997. I think the 80′ is my favourite: Dirty Dancing, Back to the Future, Dead Poets Society, Rain Man, My Neighbour Totoro and probably some more that I can’t think of at the moment

If you were to be in a movie would you rather play the hero, villain or anti-hero? Why? Anti-hero. I don’t think the hero role would suit me.


Hello there my friends. It is so good to be back! I know I’ve been M.I.A. for the past few days, but now I’m baaack and holidays are getting closer which means that you will (hopefully) see more from me. I’ve recently been active on my Instagram account, so why don’t give it a look. I’d be very grateful.

“Sunday Stealing” No°10: “The Jackals Meme”

For rules and/or information click hereCheers to all of us thieves!!!  


The Jackals Meme

Question 1: Who is your favorite Musical Artist?
It’s hard to choose just one, but to make it easier for me for the second question I’ll say P!nk.
Question 2: What is your favorite album by that Artist?
Normally what I love about some artist are a few specific songs, not whole albums, but in P!nk’s case it’s a bit easier. Missundaztood has got some of my favourite songs from her and I also like the title a lot.
Question 3: Who is your Favorite Blogger?
I love reading every entry from all the blogs I follow, but Shannon’s is definitely one at the top! 🙂
Question 4: If you could meet anyone (dead or alive), who would it be and what is interesting about them?
It would be interesting to meet someone that doesn’t have a proper biography anywhere, someone from and about whom I can learn something new. Right now I’d say King Arthur.
Question 5: What did you want to be when you grew up?
I want to be crime scene investigator.
Question 6: What is the most interesting piece of Trivia that you know?
Depends on the point of view, but interesting to me is that you can easily find out where an Euro note was printed. On the back there is a serial number written which start with a letter. Examples: X is Germany, L is Finnland, Y is Greece, Z is Belgium, N is Austria, M is Portugal, S is Italy, T is Irland, V is Spain and U is France. There was a time when I was fascinated with money and it’s origins. Healthy obsession.
Question 7: If you could live in any point of history when would it be and why?
As a woman it’s hard to choose any period older than 100 years, only if could choose the Renaissance but to be a member of the royalty.
Question 8: What do you think of the election in the U.S. so far?
I hope for the best of the entire world that Trump won’t be elected.
Question 9: What is your favorite TV drama? What do you like about it?
Supernatural. I learned a lot about Myths and so many different religions. It is also a story about love, family, friendship and loss.
Question 10: What is the most interesting job you’ve ever had?
I only had 2 jobs, so there is not that big of a choice. The most interesting was to work as a waiter in a Café.

“Sunday Stealing” No°8: “Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter Meme”

For rules and/or information click hereCheers to all of us thieves!!!


Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter Meme

  • When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper? Around 6 months ago to my friends in Australia.
  • Can you change the oil on a car? No, but I’m planing on learning right after I get my license. 
  • Ever gotten a speeding ticket? I don’t have a driving licence yet and my scooter isn’t fast enough for me to get a ticket.
  • Run out of gas? I’ve only been driving the scooter for 2-3 months and this never happened to me.
  • Favorite kind of sandwich? I don’t have one; there are some I like better than others and some I would never want to eat. I like them with cheese and any kind of meat.
  • Best thing to eat for breakfast? Cereals with milk.
  • What is your usual bedtime? Ahmm… define usual.
  • Are you lazy? Yes, very, but don’t worry it’s not contagious. Actually today I’ve been very active and continued with decorating my room.
  • When you were a kid, what did you dress up as for Halloween? Sad story. We don’t celebrate Halloween in Romania, or at least we didn’t use to. My first real Halloween was in 2011 and I dressed like a vampire, ‘sigh’ totally unexpected.
  • Do you have any magazine subscriptions? No.
  • Which are better, legos or lincoln logs? I wouldn’t know. I never played with any of them.
  • Are you stubborn? Yes, very and again not contagious. I’m ‘lucky’ that I have a couple of good friends that are as well very stubborn. We have some really good discussion and debates sometimes.
  • Who is better…Leno or Letterman? I don’t watch American TV, but I do know Letterman and I’ve only heard good things about him. I might have even seen something on Youtube with him. So I’ll vote for Letterman.
  • Ever watch soap operas?  I’ve watched Spanish and Turkish ones, some of them with my mum. If I’d turn on the TV out of boredom and Grey’s Anatomy / 90210 / The Young and the Restless (this show is still airing even after 43 years. If that isn’t inspirational I don’t know what is) was on I’d watch it.
  • Afraid of heights? Yes, very. I try to do as much climbing as I can (overcome your fears, right?) I’ve climbed every notable climbable tourist attraction I’ve come across. The Eiffel Tower, Bologna’s Tower, some tower in Latvia and perhaps some more. Honestly I haven’t seen a change, but I still have hope. 
  • Sing in the car? Again, I don’t have a driving licence, so singing in the car would involve al least one other person next to me and I don’t really sing around other people if they can actually hear me. 
  • Dance in the shower? I sing in the shower, but there’s not enough space to dance.
  • Dance in the car? Not around people. Although I might dance if no one’s watching.
  • Ever used a gun? No. There is no Second Amendment here in Germany.
  • Do you think musicals are cheesy? No. I LOVE musicals!
  • Is Christmas stressful? Not for me. I’m not the one bringing all the gifts to the children or cooking all the food.
  • Ever eat a pierogi? Way too many times. It’s a pretty traditional food. 
  • Major annoyance right now? I tend to complain about a lot of things all the time, but there is nothing at the moment that annoys me.
  • Occupations you wanted to be when you were a kid? Technically I’m still a kid. Archaeologist, doctor, police officer and now forensic scientist.
  • Do you believe in ghosts?  Yes, I do. I believe that if we die with unfinished business (on a more emotional/spiritual level like seeing your child growing up or getting married, definitely not an unfinished game) we remain on Earth until we manage to solve them. My belief it’s similar with the one presented on Ghost Whisperer or Supernatural.
Thank you Kwizgiver for this week’s questions. I totally liked this week’s long name of the meme 🙂 I wish everyone a good start into the new week!

“Sunday Stealing” No°7: “Ask Questions Meme”

For rules and/or information click hereCheers to all of us thieves!!!


Ask Questions Meme

  1. What type of criminal would you be? – The one that puts the least effort into, since I’m… well… pretty lazy.
  2. What are you listening to right now? – Stressed Out by Twenty One Pilots
  3. If you had to choose a stripper name, what would it be? –  There are apparently apps that can tell you that (who would have thought of that?) and mine would be Kandy Kane. 👍
  4. If your phone started ringing, who would you hope is calling? – A lawyer that would tell me I just inherited a lot of money. 
  5. Do you drink alcohol? – Yes, no hard stuff though. I prefer wine and Martini.
  6. Do you smoke? – No. I bare grudge to no one if the do so, as long as it’s not happening in my vicinity 
  7. What is the first thing you notice in someone? – Shoes. I think there is a quote stating that shoes are some way of window to each ones personality.
  8. Do you get attached easily? – A lot of times, and mostly I lose interest as fast as I gained it.
  9. Do you like your eye color? – Yes.
  10. Have any stupid human tricks? – I haven’t discovered any yet.
  11. Humor me. What physical ideal do you imagine in a boyfriend/girlfriend/partner? – As plain as it might sound, normal. I find it har nowadays to find normality. I need no Beckham nor Tatum or any other “ideal” man, although I’m not saying that they’re not attractive. My preferences extend to blondish hair and blue eyes. He should be fit and kind of sporty (I’m not a picky person, so a six-pack isn’t necessary). Beautiful eyes and a beautiful smile. Now that I humoured you, I would like to express my dislike towards society’s “standards” and “ideals” and that I would never decide over somebody just based on the physical aspects, maybe at times would happen involuntarily, but I’ve had my experience with it and learned my lesson. It’s the personality and the values that matter which I have a difficulty in finding, but I’m still hoping. I know it sound like a cliché, but it’s really what I stand for.
  12. Any other essential quirks/interests/other you look for in a boyfriend/girlfriend/partner? – I’d appreciate a good taste in music, jokes, a musical ability like guitar or piano playing, a love for travelling and books.
  13. Have you ever stolen anything? – I’ll say no, since I want to become a part of the police enforcement one day.
  14. Any romantic gestures you really like? – It’s the small things that matter, mostly spontaneous.
  15. What’s your favorite color and why? – Blue and purple, because… they’re the best(?)
  16. What were you like when you were a kid? – Challenging, hyperactive.
  17. What would your dream house be like? – The one and only reason why I played Sims. Whenever I’ll find the time to replay it, I’ll upload a picture, because you don’t want me to get on with describing it.
  18. What last made you laugh? – I’m currently reading The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. “‘God you’re the best,’ I told him. ‘I bet you tell that to all the boys who finance your international travel,’ he answered.” page 90, paperback.
  19. Do you have a place you like to go to collect your thoughts? – My bed(?)
  20. What is your favorite word? – Eloquent
  21. What is your least favorite word? – Ignorance
  22. Would you go bungee jumping/sky diving if given the chance? – Yes, I definitely want to try it out at least once in my lifetime.
  23. Do you have any siblings? – Yes, a smaller brother.
  24. Do you like to dance? – Yes, I do. although that doesn’t make me a good dancer.
  25. What is your definition of cheating? – In a relationship: unsteadiness, dissatisfaction, the wish for more; in evrerything else: the search for “the easier way”

Thank you Kwizgiver for this week’s questions. Like all the previous weeks I had a lot of fun answering them. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend and I wish everyone a nice week to come!

“Sunday Stealing” No°6: “Doodley-Do Meme”

For rules and/or information click hereCheers to all of us thieves!!!
Better late than never.


Doodley-Do Meme
Stolen from: i take surveys

Do you keep notes, drawings or letters that people give you?
I do collect a lot of “useless” things like the ones mentioned above.
How many true best friends are present in your life?
2 girls (+ my cousin, but hey, friends are the family you get to choose and she kind of got stuck with me and had no choice but to become my best friend 😉 )
Do you currently have a significant other?
None that I know of ;).
Would you be able to stand being in the same room as someone you hate?
Leave me with my iPod and I promise I’ll only listen to music. (Actually I think she would be more enraged than me to be in the same room as me, since she was the bully.)
Do you depend on people at all, in any way?
On my parents, because they give me a place to stay and my teachers because by grading me they hold my future in their hands. (Just kidding with the last part. At least partially)
Have you ever lost a close friend?
“Lost” like in dying, no and I’m grateful for that, but I did lose a “couple” of “close” friends in the past few years. I wrote “close” because by now I realised we weren’t as close as I thought.
Has anybody ever held a grudge against you for a dumb reason?
Yes. 7th grade I was accused of stealing a pen, A PEN, from my “bully” and of course everyone believed her, even my teacher, which didn’t even want to listen to my parents. At the end of the year I got a smaller behaviour grade, just because of that.
Have you ever stayed up late talking to someone you like on the phone or online?
“Like” in like a candidate for the “significant other” role, it’s possible, but I stay up late almost every day and talk to someone from time to time, so it wouldn’t be like I made an exception for someone.
Have you ever felt backstabbed by a close friend?
I did so recently. In February I had a “talk” with my guy best friend at the time and a couple of misunderstandings resulted, he kept his distance from me, I thought it was my fault and tried my best to make him “forgive” me. 2 months later I found his reason from his girlfriend, which would have made the situation much easier if I knew it at the start. That’s when I decided I had enough and “broke up” with him.
Have you ever regretted ignoring anybody?
Mostly it’s me that gets ignored and I don’t recall ever ignoring anybody (memory loss?)
Has a friend of yours ever confessed their love to you?
I don’t know if I mentioned it before, but I lack of a good memory and if something like this had happend, I would have chosen to forget it in case it wasn’t mutual.
Have you written or drawn anything for somebody else?
I’ve written letters a few times and I always send postcards to my friends in Australia (It’s a deal we’ve made, that wherever we’d go, we will always send each other postcards 🙂 )
Do you tend to hide your emotions from certain people? How do you hide them?
Avoiding talking on certain subjects or changing the subject. I don’t think it actually works, or maybe my best friend is just that good, that she always knows when something is wrong – sometimes even when I don’t.
Do your friends know how to make you smile in tough times?
I hope they do. Kidding 😀 Sure they do 🙂
Could you picture yourself on a reality TV show?
No, not a chance. First of all, I’m weird and nobody would want to watch it. Second of all, I’m not the type of person that is able to put on a “mask” for an audience.
Are you better at drawing or colouring?
I’d say colouring, because it’s easier(?), but I prefer drawing, because it gives me the felling of accomplishing something with my own hands.
Do you prefer meat or seafood?
Meat – pork or chicken.
Have you ever read the Bill of Rights / Declaration of Independence?
Bill of Rights in English class. The French Declaration of Independence in History class.
Would you rather become a police officer or a firefighter?
A police officer. In fact I thought about it for almost a year; Major Crimes would have been my choice of field. Now it just shifted a little bit – Forensic Scientist.
