4. Don’t change the rules!

1. Do you Like your name? If not, what would you like to be?

my mother wanted to name me Giavana Pearl and sometimes i feel that it would have been much more fitting. i used to hate my name, but i’ve learned to love the way it sounds in the mouths of my loved ones & adore the nicknames my closest friends give me (including angel and bb a-pug)

2. What song has been stuck in your head lately?

i’m auditioning for a wind ensemble on wednesday and i have the audition piece (sonata in d) running through my head.

3. What is your favorite candy?

i have a huge thing for dark chocolate covered cherries

4. Do you prefer small towns or big cities?

i have only ever lived in small towns (the same one for the first 18 years of my life, and then an even smaller one when i went to college) but i am convinced that i’d be much happier in a big city.

5. Do you ever want to have children?

i’m not sure if i want to birth children or adopt, but i want to raise children, i think. some days i am very sure and can’t wait & others i am convinced that the world is too terrible to bring new life into and that i’d be a terrible mother. 

6. Do you have/want any tattoos? Of what?

i don’t have any tattoos and i’m not entirely sure if i ever will want one, but i really enjoy other people’s tattoos. if i ever did get one, it would be a sun.

7. Are you a morning person or a night owl?

night owl, although i wish i were a morning person.

8. What is your favorite fragrance?

pine & patchouli 

9.What was the last book you read?

cherokee bat and the goat guys by francesca lia block

10. What is your favorite item of clothing that you own?

i have this one flow-y floor length dress and i feel beautiful whenever i wear it. the top half of it is a kind of muted purple and a dark purply-brown tie dye and the bottom is a beautiful blend of bright, vibrant colors: reds and blues and purples and yellows with ribbon designs and detailing.
