envy because secretly, nobody knows who I love and envy and I will never tell anyone...
c) If you could bring one person back to life and spend a whole day with him or her, who would it be and why?
My father because I really loved him and I miss him
d) If you won a three-million dollar lottery, what would you do with the money? What would you do with a five-hundred dollar win?

Sit alone and talk to Reino.
g) Where would you go to hang out if you wanted to feel comfortable?
My room in the dark.
i) Do you have a secret passion? What? Why is it a passion? And why is it a secret?
I wish to become a famous actress. I started acting to fuel this passion. No one knows this because I am so shy.
j) How do you feel in a crowd? How do you feel alone?
I hate being in a room with other people unless it is with my brother (: and I love being alone.
k) If you were asked to describe yourself, what would you say about the kind of person you are? How about how you look?
Solitary, shy, anger filled. Dark, mysteriously sexy, tall.
l) Where do you want to be in your life ten years from now?
With my brother Coco living happy.

I laugh at the person crying. If I am alone, I just sit there quietly, smiling.

Money is okay. I mean, it does not buy you happiness, but to me it is essential to continue my style of living.
q) What do you consider romantic?
A candle-lit date alone.
r) How "green" are you? At the store, do you ask for paper, plastic, or bring a bag? Do you take hour-long showers, quick ones, have a rain barrel in the yard to catch water for the garden? And so on. While you are figuring out how "green" you are, figure out why you are dark green or not green at all.
I take really long showers and I do not usually go shopping every day. I guess I am not very green…
s) How do you deal with anger, sadness, external/internal conflict, change, loss, jealousy, hurt, ect...? Why?
I just let it pass by. With anger, I let it build, the expel it all at once in one burst.
t) How do you think others see you as a person? How do you think other see you when it comes to looks and clothes?
Others see me as a very manipulative, shy woman who needs to find herself and clings too much onto her brother. I just love my brother sooooo much. I want to protect him with everything that I have.
