What question do you most dislike being asked?
"Where are you from?"
Why does it annoy you so much?
Gods. That question just irks me. I get asked it all the time. I guess I've just overheard it, so it's very tedious
to answer. It's like, I have to go into my life story and have others pry into my life just to answer some question that really doesn't
need all that detail.
I was born in Russia. I am adopted. My father is Irish. My mother is British. Where I'm from is where I feel that I'm from. So, I say "Irish". That is my nationality I identify with. When I was adopted, the first passport I got was an Irish passport. I use a British passport these days, but I feel more Irish than British. Deep in my heart, there is my Russian, my blood is Russian, but since being adopted, that is my past, and not what I identify as. This might change in time; who knows?
Another reason I find this question so tedious? I get sick of people contradicting my answer, and being all, "Well, you're born in Russia, so you're Russian" or "You don't even sound Irish. . .or British. . .or Russian" when I try to explain. . .simply because I have a very mixed, unidentifiable accent. Um. NO.
Do not be asking me something just to defy my answer. Daft people. This is what I
feel, not what you feel. Why ask a personal question if you're not going to respect the answer?
In the end, I end up brushing it off because I've been there, done that with all the discussion. I am from where I identify that I am from.
Well, all ranting aside: I am from Asgard, bitches! ~_^
On the flip side, what question do you most enjoy being asked and why?
Oh, anything to do with my lovely God of Mischief. Must I really answer why
? I could talk endlessly talk about Loki? I'll never get bored! Also, I love questions to do with travel. I could talk hours about that topic, too. I have travelled a lot, I plan to travel a lot, and it's one of my passions, so, of course, I love talking about it. =^u^=
