Hi dear hearters! So, I'm French and by contradiction mind, my parents decided to name me Jennifer. I thought it would be useful to start my articles by introducing myself quickly. So, I will answer a few questions if you are interested, happy to meet you, I hope you will be too.

1) Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, and find line 4.

"Un disque de lumière brûla sur le rebord du ciel, et la mer tout autour ne fut plus qu'une seule coulée d'or." - Les Vagues, Virginia Woolf. I particularly like this author, which I advise you to read, starting with To the Lighthouse.

2) Have you stolen a street sign before?

Friends did it for my 20th birthday, they tagged my name on it before putting it back in its original place.

3) Do you always smile for pictures?

Pull a face honey

4) What’s your zodiac sign?

Taurus or Tiger for Chinese zodiac sign

5) What color are your eyes?

Hazel or weird green, nobody found out

6) Is it OK for guys to wear pink?

Oh please, everyone wears what he wants. From now on, it is a private choice that comes under the personality of everyone, it is a fundamental human right.

7) What’s the farthest away place you’ve been in?

I think Greece during a cruise, I would love to cross the Atlantic Ocean to reach the continents of America or discover Asia and Oceania. But if I had to choose the country to visit first, I think it would be Australia.

8) Do you wear glasses/contacts?

Not at all, only sunglasses honey. And because I have a round head shape, I struggled to find glasses that fit me well. You can believe me!

9) Do you like watching scary movies?

Yes, like it! But I have to admit that I don't like the after-movie too much. The ones I love the most are not really from the horror genre, but rather apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic movies with the human extinction. Otherwise, I appreciate horror movies with suspense and anxiety but I never against the old classics.

10) What were you doing at midnight last night?

I read. I bought an art book about Claude Monet, one of my favorite contemporary artists. The next will be on Turner, the second on my list.

11) What movies could you watch over and over again and still love?

Really hard one! I have quite eclectic tastes in terms of movies or even music. It's a difficult choice to make but I particularly like the 50s-60s. Old movies with Hepburn and Loren, it's a return to the sources, like a constant refreshing.

12) Do you have any phobias?

I'm fighting right now claustrophobia. I also have a lot of trouble with sharks. They literally horrify me with their teeth and the fact that they are unpredictable, even today. But the irony is that I dream of surfing on the Australian waves, little complicated. And finally, even though I really like water, drowning terrifies me.

13) Best thing to eat for breakfast?

Currently, this is THE question I ask myself every morning. I do not have a precise choice or fixed habits: it depends on where I am, the outside weather and my mood of the moment. But, I'm French so I really like to have a coffee/tea with a "pain au chocolat" and a fruit. But I also like diversity so I sometimes eat eggs, pancakes with a squeezed orange juice. In fact, it doesn't really matter as long as it keeps me satisfied until lunchtime.

14) Are you lazy?

To whom it may concern, procrastination is my synonym. More seriously, I don't think being lazy but I realize that there are several things that interest me inevitably more than others.

15) What was the name of your first pet?

My lovely Bretzel, a dwarf rabbit. I have a thing with food: currently, my Australian shepherd's name is "Biscotte".

16) How many languages can you speak?

Of course, I speak French fluently, and I have been learning English for a long time now. I also try to learn Russian and I can count until 20 in ancient Greek. Does that count? Otherwise, I intend to learn Spanish too but hey, for the moment only an ambition.

17) Can you whistle?

It's a pretty long story actually. Since I was born, I had never managed to whistle. But it only took one summer with archaeological excavations to quickly assimilate the gesture, especially when I put my hands, my knees, and my head into mud and earth with the help of a trowel and a little shovel.

18) What’s your favorite candle scent?

I love candles so muuuuuch! Difficult to decide a specific opinion but I particularly like some such as:

- Amber precious traditional scented candle, Durance
https://www.comptoirdelhomme.com/

- Madeleine scented candle, Saugette
- Pear scented candle, Jack & Johnnie co.
- Winter forest scented candle, Happy Melody
- Breakfast at Tiffany's Hand Poured Scented Soy Candle, Moonlite Wax Works
https://www.etsy.com/

19) What inspires you?

Life itself is an inexhaustible source of inspiration. You just need to know how to cultivate your eye as much as your brain. For that, I think it's necessary to travel and get away from his comfort zone, to see the joy and life in every living being. Yes, that's a utopian vision.

20) What’s your favorite season?

Because I am a poetic soul and philosophical (at least I think), this idea is also seen through my tastes. So, my favorite seasons are the transitive ones: autumn and spring. I see them as death and the rebirth of life. I see this as one of many cycles of life.

21) Ever take dance lessons?

I had dance lessons at the age of 8 in my little village. I was doing hip-hop but I'm passionate about all dance. I would particularly like to learn ballet or tango.

22) Do you wear perfume?

Yes, I put some perfumes slightly every morning. I often wear Kenzo World or Lancome's Treasure Midnight Rose. But during summer, I prefer essential oils.

23) Do you want kids or to get married?

In an innate rebellious spirit, I never wanted to have children until here. I think it would be a selfish choice given our current world. But that remains my personal opinion. I can understand those who want it and see it as a miracle of life. Regarding marriage, I am not in favor either. In my mind, represents only an authorization given by the State, a simple contract. I would feel like being chained or caged if you prefer.

24) Is there anything that you’re disappointed about?

Many things displease me in our present society. But the main one is the unhealthy relationship we have with other people or even animals. Cruelty, avarice or ignorance are to me the greatest scourges of our century.

25) What quote do you live by?

"We are now faced with the fact, my friends, that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there is such a thing as being too late." - Martin Luther King (Vietnam War). He's an inspiring human being.

The picture that I added to this article is a photograph of my mother at my birth holding me in her arms. Enjoy!
