Member Questionnaire 1 (Fay)What is beauty? What is love?
For me personally beauty can be anything and can be expressed in all sort of different ways. It doesn't necessary have to be something aesthetically appealing, everything and everyone that can deeply touch my feelings is beautiful in my eyes. I hate cliche, generic beauty and anything that lacks originality, idea or depth. What are your most important values?
Love is the deep feeling of belonging, being understood and whole. I feel like love doesn't necessary come with a person, it comes with art, music, idea, though...anything that can touch you in one way or another can be a source of love.
individuality, identity, integrity, freedom, originality, creativity, passion, feeling, sympathy, knowledge, curiosity, openness, intellect, logicDo you have any sort of spiritual/religious beliefs, and why do you hold (or don't) those beliefs in the first place?
I am not a spiritual person, I personally have been trying to find a philosophy, or a religion that would fit my personal world views, but I feel like they are hard to categorize and therefore I do not put myself in any group like that. Then I also find spirituality and religion as limiting, irrational and delusional. I do believe in existentialism as a philosophy about life, mainly absurdism is fairly close to me. I do agree with such people as Nietzsche for example.Opinion on war and militaries? What is power to you?
I do not understand war... I mean I do understand the logic behind it, I do understand the process all the pros and cons, but it goes against anything I believe in is good and true. My idea of a perfect world is peace and unity of all nations, countries and cultures.What have you had long conversations about? What are your interests? Why?
I am really the kind of person who believes in freedom, unity and peace.
I can have long conversations about lots of things really... I really like to talk about the universe, its laws and possible meanings. I like philosophy, mainly the one oriented on the meaning of life and things around. I also enjoy the theory of politics and sociology. Obviously I like psychology and I enjoy to analyze other people. I am also a huge fan of music, art and culture so anything close to such topics is also close to me.Interested in health/medicine as a conversation topic? Are you focused on your body?
I do not really take such a good care of my health, I am more interested in the aesthetics that come with the diets or health care, but I am terrible at following through. What do you think of daily chores?
I care more about the ethical questions of food, but then I also tend to care about how much is healthy and how far I can go to keep myself on the good move.
I do not really put much effort in them and see chores as more or less a waste of time. I usually put doing them off as much as I can.Books or films you liked? Recently read/watched or otherwise. Examples welcome.
I tend to enjoy mysteries and dramas, I like fantasy and sci-fi a lot.What has made you cry? What has made you smile? Why?
My favorite TV-show right now is Hannibal, followed by Wayward Pines and Under the Dome. As a writer I recently really enjoyed reading crime stories from Jo Nesbo. I like movies like Sleepy Hollow from Tim Burton, or a crime-dramas like From Hell.
I cry a lot when I see something touching in any kind of way, it can be positive even. I like things that goes really deep into your feelings, usually it's music that makes me cry. I recently got pretty much into Nine Inch Nails and the sort of feelings Trent Reznor tends to get out is something extremely close to me.Where do you feel: at one with the environment/a sense of belonging?
I think my boyfriend made me smile lately. He made some sort of teasing jokes about me, which were kind of cute.
There is a music club in our city I know very well and I've been going there since I was a teen. It's in the underground with very specific kind of alternative atmosphere and rock and metal music playing in the background. I like both the music and the usual company there.What have people seen as your weaknesses? What do you dislike about yourself?
Most of the people see me as kind of unproductive, lazy and indecisive, which is definitely true. I have a trouble to make myself move sometimes, and I also suffer with organization and management.What have people seen as your strengths? What do you like about yourself?
I've been told I am creative, different, have good insights and interesting ideas.In what areas of your life would you like help?
I think I also have quite an individualistic, but good sense of aesthetics and a deep desire for artistic expression.
I think I need someone who would make me move, be more productive, organized and self confident.
How do you feel about romance/sex? What qualities do you want in a partner?
I like the romance to be unique and different, while not extremely heavy on expressions of love. I like relationships to be smooth, but interesting in a creative and original sort of way.How do you behave around strangers?
I am not really good with strangers, I am always polite and nice, but I tend to feel insecure and shy in socially unknown situations.
