Bumping for a new topic for this thread: It's been a while- tell us about yourselves (if you feel comfortable too!)- do you have any fun facts about yourself, or weird quirks that you do?

A fun fact about me: I'm a sucker for arcade games and have hit over 9000 "powertickets"* playing at Timezone arcades on my old card (which I had to retire because it isn't a tap card and that's what my local one is slowly moving to) (*sometimes with the help of my siblings or Rui :D )

Lightning round quirks  :)

- All good things end in 0 or 5. I will wait to end a call for an extra few seconds if it means they end up on those digits. Absolutely hate seeing numbers like $9.99 because please just round it up.

- Picked up bowling after a breakup as a coping mechanism, now it's my official hobby. I'm currently sitting on 145 as my personal best and hoping to get much better over the year.

- Thinks some Disney sequels are better than the original films. Most controversial opinion is The Lion King II being better than The Lion King.

Definitely a "quirk"
For The Lion King Franchise it really is:

TLK 1 > TLK3 > TLK2

For what other films does your statement apply to?

I too like dark chocolate, and I can't do makeup to save myself (so I just don't wear any haha)! :)

I can agree that in terms of animation quality and storyline, TKL I is a classic but TLK II has the best music and I think its message about racism and division rings true today. If it had a better budget and more fleshed out character details, it would've rocked but then again, it didn't need that for me to love it as much as I did.

Other sequels I prefer include Peter Pan II: Return to Neverland, Cinderella III: A Twist in Time, Lilo and Stitch 2: Stitch has a Glitch and recently Frozen II. Also really like the music for Mulan II but Mulan was definitely superior.

(This is probably going to spark a debate and I'm totally cool with that).

Here are a few random facts (or mini essays, whoops) about me:

- I'm an avid gamer, more specifically RPGs and open-world games. Yes, I'm the self-proclaimed queen of side quests. I will finish EVERY single side quest and level up my characters to its maximum level before finishing the main story. Fun fact: I completed every single contract in The Witcher 3 before completing the main story (plus the two DLCs), and with FFXV I completed ALL side quests before finishing the main story, including those stupid fishing quests (mind you, this is the Royal Edition so extra lore and side quests).

- I've broken my nail 5 times in my life. When I mean nail, I don't mean my nail polish chipping off or losing nail acrylics, I mean my actual nail being ripped from its nail bed.

- For being a bibliophile, I really hate YA fiction. I think they tend to promote toxic tropes, an example being the "I'm Not Like Other Girls"/Cool Girl trope (there are great video essays breaking this down on Youtube but my favourite would be by The Take). I think I've also reached that cynical state that no novel can ever have a completely original storyline so you're gonna have to wow me with the writing style. And the YA books I've read are almost like Wattpad/fanfiction material (no tea no shade but like *side eye*).

- For someone who's studying engineering, I prefer writing reports over the calculations because I find it to be the best way for me to get my ideas organised instead of having lines of equations scrawled all over a scrap sheet of paper.
