The title of a rather cheesy song by a Swedish girl called Emilia that was a big hit somewhere in the late nineties. More than ten years down the line it still pops up in my head every now and again. In spite of being a big girl these days, it still is a big, big world too. Which I find hugely fascinating yet intimidating at occassions...

  1. Nice idea Bianca, I think I'll try this exercise too. What did you learn?

    1. I wish it was my idea! This is where I got it from:, and I remember the blogger got it from someone else herself.
      It's meant to be for fun, perhaps a way to check back if you change over the years (if you repeat). By looking at my answers, could you say anything about me? Or at least how I would like to perceive myself? ;-)
