March Question Meme: Day Twenty-Five  
Asked by sictransits:

What is the best meal you've ever had?

I'm not sure there's a specific meal that I can answer with, but in general pretty much anything my mom makes. Like, there is something about homemade food that just hits the spot, which I'm sure most can relate to especially if you grew up with a particular kind of dish that if anyone else made it, it wouldn't taste as good. That's how I feel about whenever my mom prepares either a dinner or just makes one specific food. ♥ ♥ ♥

Also, another meme:

Comment for a letter and then fill in the following statements.

batmarg gave me the letter "S".

Something I hate: Slow drivers and speeders on the road. Everyone can relate, I'm sure, it's a universal pet peeve, but there's just something so extra annoying about someone who thinks they own the road, fast or slow. It's like nobody matters but them and their precious time.
Something I love: Shakes, specifically chocolate milkshakes.
Somewhere I've been: San Jose, California. I've been there several times, most notably to visit the Winchester Mystery House which is one of my favorite attraction places, since I'm fascinated by the history and the layout of the entire house in general. I really want to go again sometime, perhaps on the flashlight tour.
Somewhere I'd like to go: San Diego Comic Con. Despite my social anxiety and disliking claustrophobic crowded spaces like that, never mind how expensive it would be and how fast tickets get sold out immediately, just attending once in my lifetime would be fantastic.
Someone I know: N/A
A film I like: Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I've always been a casual fan of the Star Wars franchise, but The Force Awakens is probably the first time I became slightly fannish about it.

And lastly, wretched gave me the letter "E".

Something I hate: Exercise. I do it, but I absolutely fucking hate it. And I'm talking about the straight up exercise routines that aren't fun in any way, shape or form, unlike certain physical activities where you aren't aware you've been losing weight/calories and gaining muscle from (such as swimming, dancing, walking, etc.) As much as I have exercise DVDs and use them to help me break into a specific routine, it sucks every single time because it is not enjoyable. I have to mentally and physically push myself to actually get through it. I prefer the fun working out activities versus the straightforward ones, to be honest.
Something I love: Eating food.
Somewhere I've been: Epcot at Disney World.
Somewhere I'd like to go: Europe and Egypt are to places I'd like to visit someday. But then, I just want to travel the world in general, so.
Someone I know: N/A
A film I like: Eko Eko Azarak, a Japanese horror film franchise based off of a manga which features a teenage girl who goes around to different schools to fight evil forces. I discovered it years ago when I was looking for more Asian horror movies to watch, and was immediately drawn to it because of the main character and subject matter.

yoooo I totally feel you on exercise; I LOATHE it with every fiber of my being. I like walking and dancing and things like that (if only I knew how to swim!), as you said, but actually, like, going to the gym? or doing HIIT workouts? I would rather do literally anything else. I have never been able to maintain consistency at a gym for more than a couple of months. exercise is the worst.

And same about SDCC! Part of me thinks I wouldn't enjoy it because of the crowd and maybe I'd be better off at a smaller convention, but it's SDCC! I feel like I have to go at least once just to experience such a huge meeting of fans.

Even with certain workout DVDs that have incorporated dancing elements can be a challenge to get through sometimes because there are sections where I know I cannot do, though the beauty of doing those at home is that you can actually not do them and just jump right back into the groove with the parts that you know you can do. But overall, the whole aspect of exercise in general, no matter whether you're in the gym or doing routines at home, is essentially not fun. I think a lot of the times we know it's too much work and we associate that with it not being fun, because you have to literally force yourself to get through it, whereas with other physical activities that aren't strictly exercise-based but still gives you a good workout are more enjoyable.

Like, I would prefer going to dance class versus going to a gym workout class. They both offer the same amount of exercise quality, but one is more enjoyable than the other.

SDCC is one of those things that just gets bigger and bigger every year, and at this point it's become quite a media attraction in general and more corporate than how it used to be many years ago, which combine that with the massive crowds it might not be as enjoyable as smaller, more contained conventions. At the same time though, SDCC is something where you just have to go once. I remember going to Dragon*Con a while ago and it was such an enjoyable experience that I want to relive it again.
