The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.

I can’t get enough of Paramnesia right now. I wish I had the money to buy their vinyl, ahah.

11: A song you like in a language other than English?
Nu svarar jag på engelska. ;D

I actually think I listen to more music in languages other than English than I do in English, and I can’t really explain why. I guess lyrics aren’t as important to me and music scenes from other countries are great.

But one song?! Going to say Fjara by Sólstafir. That’s probably a really predictable answer for most of my followers, haha. It’s an excellent song in Icelandic, for those who don’t know it. :D

Tack, svensk anon! ;)

4, 7, 15 :)

4: Does anyone in your family speak a language that I don’t?
My mother is Croatian and speaks her language fluently. I’m a little disappointed I didn’t learn it growing up, but I can understand a few phrases.

7: Your favourite word in your native language?
(native English speaker)
I really like the word “ambivalent” because of its meaning and its sound.
Also, I think the word “beautiful” is actually a beautiful word.

15: Write a short introduction of yourself in a language other than English?
Jag har skrivit ett svar till denna frågan förut, men jag kan skriva någonting annat, haha. Jag gillar att dricka kaffe. Mitt favoritdjur är katt.
Tack för frågorna, Jasmina! :D

5! :D

5: Your favourite language to listen to?
This is difficult! I’m going to say Finnish. The words flow seamlessly and I love their vowels :D

3, 14 and 15 please and post publically!! <3

3: Languages you are learning or want to learn?
Well, I guess I’m still learning Swedish because one never stops learning.
Apart from that, I want to learn German and French.

14: Languages you like, but wouldn’t put the effort into learning?
Possibly Japanese or Russian? Although I’m kind of okay at pronouncing Cyrillic.

15: Write a short introduction about yourself in a language other than English?
Hej alla! Tack för att fråga mig, Lisa!
Jag är tjugo år gammal och bor i Australien. Jag studerar fotografi hos Curtin University. Igår kväll tittade jag på filmen “Metalhead” på ‘Scandinavian Film Festival’ i staden. Filmen var isländsk och otroligt bra!
