Here's one: I really like interactive fiction! It's not a super mainstream thing, but it comines coding and writing, and also you can make money from it, so I think it's super cool!

I tug out my eyelashes like Sophie Foster.

I'm kind of the same, but for me it's eyebrows. My parents always warn me not to, but I can't stop!

I never cut my fingernails so they grow CRAZY long, and when I'm bored or nervous I'll put my thumbnail inside of my fingernail and flick it out again repeatedly.

In second grade I had a Benjamin Franklin phase.

...long story, but basically it started with the book A Lost Track of Time.

Asian stuff. It started out with some Ghibli animations, and quickly spiralled out of control to literally anything I could get my hands on. To this day I still procrastinate by binging on Korean or Chinese webcomics (referred to as manhwa or manhua respectively) and long for the days in which I had time to watch HunterxHunter, Detective Conan/Case Closed and... I don't know, let's say Death Note (?) in peace. Perhaps more apt would be slice-of-life stuff in general, though. Plus, since then my Asian stepmother has moved in and regularly brings me to the closest Asian Market so yeah. Also, 3 out of 5 of my best friends in school were born in Asia despite us not living there during our schooling. Weird.

On the note of Conan/mysteries, I have, for the longest time, had a strange interest in mysteries; beginning with the original Sherlock Holmes, Nancy Drew & Hardy Boys plus some other stuff and branching out from one of my all-time-favourites Agatha Christie to real-world stuff. And more genre-scattered fictional things, of course. But still. Mysteries. (And particularly, those involving lethal consequences.)

How fun! :D

For some unknown reason, I keep saying, "Banana," but, I don't even like bananas! I just like saying the word.
Another one, except it's not as weird, is books. I LOOOOOVVVE books. Especially Wings of Fire. Get me started talkiing about WoF, and it'll be hard to get me to stop.

I'm ALWAYS singing...I can't stop myself! The songs are too good. Also I'm anxious without my piano, so singing is a way to soothe myself when I can't play music.
