Get to know me

I’ve been so busy in the last few weeks. One deadline haunted me down after another. There are, in fact, several ‘must do’s’ I’m currently procrastinating. So why not waste the time as best as possible by writing a ‘get to know me’ post for some of my newer readers (Hi! How you doin?) to, well you guessed it, get to know me. I’ve chosen to use the questionaire by noobbeauty and alter it a bit.


What is your middle name?:
I have none. Well, not any more. Since I was born in the Soviet Union I once had the Patronymic name ‘Maria Jacovlevna’ since my dad’s name is Jacob. When my family came to Germany and became German citizens, our patronymic names were erased out of all documents because Germany has no tradition of Patronymic (or Matronymic) names. So now, I’m no longer ‘Maria Jacovlevna’, but only Maria

What is your favorite drink?
Now those that know me for a little while expect me to write ‘Coffee’, but I won’t. Yeah I’m hopelessly enslaved to coffee and probably wouldn’t have been able to survive one semester at univ without it. However, coffee is not my favourite drink. Instead it’s Green tea (unsweetened).

Besides that, I’m obsessed with fruit smoothies. At the moment the one I do all the time contains 1-2 Bananas, frozen raspberries, frozen spinach, 1 apple, and some milk.

What is your favorite song at the moment?:
There is one particular song (& video) I’m currently obsessed with and tend to listen on repeat:

What is your favorite food?:
Nothing beats my mum’s self-made Borscht. Nothing.

What is the last thing you bought?:
Coffee, probably.

Favorite book of all time?:
Lolita by Nabokov. Yeah, I’ve just wrote that. It was the first book that showed me the beauty of the written language. And yes, the story is mesmerizing.

Other than that, I’m forever enstlaved to Tolkien’s Middle-earth

Favorite Color?:
All shades of Green. The colour reminds me of Spring, Summer, and all things that grow.

Favorite Holiday?:
Halloween. Dressing up? Excessive candy? Creepy stuff? Best. Holiday. Ever.

Have you ever been out of the country, if so how many times?:
So far I’ve lived on 3 continents (Europe, Asia, and Oceania). And visited 12 countries (I think… unless I’ve mis-counted).

Do you speak any other language?:
I speak three languages: German (mother tongue), English (excellent), Russian (beginner)

Favorite Movie?:
The Lord of the Rings, Once Were Warriors, Lolita (1997), The Usual Suspects, Star Wars

Favorite TV shows?:
Battlestar Galactica, Stargate, X-Files, The Walking Dead

How tall are you?:
1,63 m (5’3 I think)

How old are you?:
Born in Sep. 1986. You do the math
