It would be stuff about the birth of my little sister. I was two years old when she was born, so I vaguely remember talking to my mom's belly and then singing happy birthday to my sister at the hospital.

This one stood out because I was a really lonely child (there were no children in our neighborhood and I didn't go to daycare) and I was so happy to finally have someone to play with.

Oh god, where to begin?

The Immaculate Collection, Madonna's best of?

Whine Up by Kat de Luna?

Low by flo-rida?

Crossroads by Bon Jovi?

You Spin Me Round by Dead or Alive?

Gay Bar by Electric Six?

An entire From First to Last record?

I'm a sucker for embarrassing songs.

A fleur-de-lys, is a pretty common symbol. It was in old French armories and all that. It's also on my province's flag and by extension, it represents the "nation" we are... The "fleurdelisé" is the name of our flag. I just put it in the feminine form. Whatever. I was running out on inspiration and found it made a pretty word.

System of a Down, Parc Jean-Drapeau, August 2006, aka MudFest.

What made it magical?
The atmosphere. It rained buckets all day. The 25,000 of us were ankle deep in mud. After queuing for 10 hours in the rain, then waiting in the mud and rain for the show to begin (five opening acts, and except Avenged Sevenfold they really sucked), the second SOAD walked on stage, I'll never forget that feeling.

Everyone was just enjoying the show and the fact that we were all soaking wet and a uniform shade of brown, it created a sense of community I never found in any other concerts I attended after that one.

And that's not to mention the band itself, which nailed it and shredded and were just overall awesome.

To top that, it was my very first concert ever and their last on their own tour (after that they did Ozzfest before 'taking a break').

What's funny is that every new people I met since then know someone who was there and heard about how legendary it was.

Yeah, best concert I ever attended. I'll never forget that night.

I'm the oldest of two kids and yes, it influenced my personality.

I grew up being told to be mature and act like a grown up in front of my sister who acted like a baby way beyond reasonable years (crying to get stuff at 11?). That made me maybe too reasonable. I never act on impulse because I cannot be lectured, I cannot do anything wrong because I'm the oldest, more mature one. I have to behave and not cause any troubles because they always had an armful with my sister. We're two years apart so of course it meant two young kids at the same time, forcing one of the two to act beyond her age.

I'm not resentful though, because I look at how I am and how my sister is and I prefer what I am. She's a moody, selfish, egocentric and egoist brat. I like to believe I'm not. Don't get me wrong, I still love her a lot, she's just not the kind of person I'd go to if she were not my sister.

Ahaha this is too easy.

Mon truc français préféré? Je dirais la langue. Non seulement j'adore comment elle sonne, la musicalité qu'on lui retrouve, mais aussi, et c'est un peu masochiste mais bon, sa difficulté. Ça la rend encore plus intéressante, riche et unique.

Sinon, je dirais la littérature. Mes romans préférés sont français.

In 1999 we had a huge ice storm here that shut down the entire province for weeks.
I was 7 years old, just coming back from my Christmas holidays as a first grader.
One day at school before it happened.
The school stayed closed for two weeks. I had a month long Christmas holiday.

The best memories though are camping in my grandparents basement (they had electricity, we didn't) with all my aunts, uncles and cousins for two days and then having a friend over every day for the two weeks because my mother babysat her. It was pretty awesome.

Radiohead, Death Cab for Cutie, City and Colour, A Fine Frenzy and the likes when I need to study. If I need to clean or do something active, it'll be Muse, My Chemical Romance, Panic at the Disco, Cobra Starship, etc. When I have to do something that I'm reluctant about, it'll be Metallica, Alexisonfire, Billy Talent, System of a Down, etc.

I won a rabbit in a contest once. A real living rabbit. I named it Hazelnut and had it for six years, until it died. I was really sad :(

Two, French and English.
French as mother tongue and I began learning English when I was 9 years old. :)

I can also understand some Italian and Spanish because they are close to French but I cannot speak or write them.

I also know some really, really basic things in Finnish.

Pickles with raspberry jam. I lost a bet.
I would do it again, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would have been!

I swear to god I didn't edit it in photoshop. The colors are all real.

6:00 - Alarm goes off. I snooze.
6:09 - Alarm goes off. I snooze.
6:18 - Alarm goes off. I get up.

I put the light on, get dressed with clothes I chose the night before. I make my bed, brush my hair. I grab my school bag and go upstairs.
I start to boil water and pack my lunch. I make myself a cup of coffee and breakfast (usually oatmeal (anything to warm me)).
6:50 - Straighten my fringe, brush my teeth.
7:05 - Finish packing my school bag, put my winter stuff on.
7:10 - Out of the house and on the way to the bus stop, where I'll take it at around 7:14-7:15 and arrive at school at 7:50.
Then classes time.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I'm terrible with that. I always get so caught in telling the movie to people that the ending slips before I realize it. The worst I ever did was probably "The City of Angels".

And yes, the same girl told me who died in the 5th and 6th Harry Potter books, when I had clearly said both times that I didn't want to know. You'd think she would have grown up during the three years separating the books, but apparently she didn't.

They never get my Lord of the Rings references.
