So I received this challenge to answer the following questions about me… If you ever were lurking somewhere and wanted to get to know a few more things about me, here’s your chance! A bit lengthy (100 questions!), but yeah. And maybe you can also do it yourself, or challenge other friends.
1:Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
Ehh… Closed, because paranoia is real.
2:Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from the hotel?
Sometimes, if I like the smell of them. And all other goodies that hotels give.
