laura, 27.

let's get random:

*english isn't my first language, but sometimes i forget the spanish way to say something and find that it's easier to say it in english, it's weird.
*i'm very short. as of 150cm.
*i'm still studying.
*i love travelling way too much.
*favourite cities: barcelona, london, madrid, paris, boston, new york city... though not in that order (barcelona is #1, though).
*i wear glasses. can't wear contacts.
*i use lots of black eye liner.
*i apply too much blush 99% of the time.
*i'm addicted to lip gloss/balm, seriously, after all these years i think my lips have become addicted to it and now they get dehydrated without it.
*i love tomato and cherries (not together, that'd be gross... although, who knows?).
*i have been using 'happy' by clinique as my perfume for 5 years now.
*i have a tattoo on my right foot, which ended up giving me an allergic reaction to coloured ink and i'm still recovering. lyrics: from the tori amos song 'sister janet'.
*i love grocery stores. make it even better, foreign grocery stores, i could spend AGES looking at all the pretty shelves, in awe.
*nobody can ever tell where i'm from, most people think i'm english (i guess people think you can't be pale and spanish at the same time, lol). while in england, people have asked if i'm polish, dutch, swedish, german and italian. while in paris, people thought i was either english or italian (but some people guessed right and started speaking spanish all of a sudden :o). this is always being brought up, i'm used to it. my friends call me "guiri", which is the spanish (slang) way of calling someone a foreigner.
*tv shows i love: grey's anatomy, pushing daisies, heroes, weeds, private practice, veronica mars, buffy the vampire slayer, dexter, how i met your mother, one tree hill, modern family, the big bang theory, friends, 30 rock, gossip girl & wonderfalls.
*bands/singers i've seen live: nika (so many times i can't even count), idina menzel (5 times), garbage (2 times), the cardigans (2 times), the spice girls (2 times, with a 10 year gap between these two shows), chris mann (2 times, as opening act for idina menzel), travis, tori amos, sheryl crow, HIM, scissor sisters, shakira, new order, lily allen, the long blondes, the chemical brothers, keane, daft punk, natasha bedingfield, fatboy slim, pj harvey and i'm sure i'm forgetting a few.
