Time for some Proust

Recently, I read a blog post by Vancouver blogger Lily Nguyen of Bleed for Fashion, in which she answered some questions about herself based on Vanity Fair’s Proust Questionnaire. If you don’t know what that is, basically, it is a questionnaire about one’s personality. I decided to take it upon myself to answer it because, lately, I feel the need for a little personal evaluation, or you could say, a sort of personal check-up. So here we go !
