Fill in your details. All the 'favourites' can be more than one. You can also add new questions for other posters to answer. Make sure you copy-paste all the questions.

Favourite subjects to study in general: Math, Science, and Psychology.

What are you studying or researching these days: Programming and Psychology.

Favourite country for holidays: Anywhere other than my state.

Favourite type of music or band/ singer: Alt rock/Indie Rock. Such as Imagine Dragons, Of Monsters and Men, Satellite Stories especially, etc.

Favourite film: Hot Rod for comedy, can't really decide my favorite action or scary or sci-fi movie.

Favourite TV series: Teen Titans when I was younger. GoT is pretty epic at the moment, I know there are others that I've forgotten.

Favourite actor: Honestly, Tom Cruise is pretty awesome, I've liked all of his movies. So I guess he's the closest I've got to a favorite. Or Emma Stone, shes just perfect.

Favourite food: If I eat any one food for long enough, I get sick of it, but at the moment, probably just chips/soda combo. It's pretty solid.

Favourite colour: Blue when I was growing up, lighter shades preferably, like Ice Blue, but I always liked Purple, and now it is now my favorite.

Favourite season: Fall! As the days get shorter, and the nights longer, and the weather cools down, but still not too cold. The trees become the better shades of color, the darker shades, before they lose all their leaves or die.

Pet peeves: Lying. When people make that loud clicking noise with their tongue and mouth, ugh my brother did it all the time and I swear the next person that does it I'm going to drop.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grow up?: An engineer or a genius, but now I wish I was an explorer of space, sadly it's too late for that.

Would you sing up on generational space ship for interstellar colonization? In a heartbeat. That is my one dream or goal at the moment. Nothing excites or intrigues me more than going into space. And being one of the first colonizers? That would be the best! I don't even care if I had a slim chance of living, I'd still do it.

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
I should have listed that as one of my favourite books as well. It creeps me out, though. The passages where they guy thinks he might be an adroid himself give me android-dysphoria*. What if all of us are androids and we don't even know it?
* I'm not sure that that's the right word, but it sounds sophisticated.
