What is the best feeling?
The best feeling is when you are with somebody and it just feels so right to just be.
What is your favorite dance memory?
Hmm.. probably laying flat on the ground in the end scene of THE ULTIMATE BATTLE (premiere) and realizing I fucking did it. I survived this fucked up show.
What do you collect?
Among other things, I collect stress, nice looking stones and other pretty things in general.
What do you miss?
I miss Finnish nature / Sammatti, a time when I wasn't constantly anxious and chocolate (I am on a suggar sticke atm..)
What advice would you give the 12-year-old version of yourself?
Since I was a very happily ignorant and uninformed 12 year old, I think I shouldn't spoil that with warnings or advice. It is worth to fail in the future just to stay in that bliss a bit longer. :)
What do you despise?
Fear. ..and yet I am afraid of dark and other ridiculous things...
What do you love?
funny phone covers.
What was your latest epiphany?
That animals living in the same ecosystem have evolved to not sing on top of each other, but to play together.
