Toronto, in Canada! Just hanging out at home!
What is your definition of cool?
Cool to me is different for each person. Everyone has something special that makes them cool - whether they let that part of them thrive or not is a different story. I find that a person's 'cool' side shines through the most when they are humble, natural, true-to-themselves people who see the world positively. It also depends greatly on how they treat other people, if they are kind-hearted and caring and considerate or not. Meaning that loud can be totally cool, quiet can be totally cool, outrageous can be totally cool, reserved can be totally cool, it doesn't matter at all so long as you're always REAL and KIND.
How do you fit this definition? What makes you cool?
I don't know if I'd call myself cool! I'm actually a total geek in so many ways, but I guess I always try to be kind towards others and am always considering others' feelings whether I know them well or not. I also try to be myself as much as possible, even if that means geeking out at pictures of cute puppies in class, or laughing until I go beat-red and something funny I saw while looking out the window, in front of all my classmates and my profs.
Who inspires you to be cool?
My friends. I have this amazing group of friends from highschool who I learned to be myself with. They can be the biggest group of 5 year olds, we would make faces at each other from across the room in classes, we'd make up silly nicknames for each other, but we'd also all support each other and stick by one another when we went through rough patches. Now, in university and still as close as ever, I know that these are REAL people, and that's the ultimate cool :)
If your life could have a theme song or a motto, what would it be?
"When life hands you lemons, make lemonade. If life gives you a tough situation, make the best of it."
I sort of worked that one out in my head years back when I was going through some rough stuff, and since then it's helped me through every other rough patch I've been through!
