Protozoa: Though you believe yourself to be important and likeable, the opposite is true. You know, deep down, that your existence doesn’t matter in the long run, but you try to distract yourself with delusions of self-importance.

Blue and purple!! :3

Awesome, thanks for replying!

10 facts about my room: I have a shelf of tiny figurines of US presidents. My closet is home to all the family’s copies of Your Big Backyard, Ranger Rick, National Geographic Kids, and Ladybug. The knobs on my closet doors are small purple fish because I chose them in third grade. I have two animation cells from “The Brave Little Toaster” framed on my wall. My mom drew eyelashes and a smile on my butterfly lamp because I was upset that it didn’t have a face (I was 5). I have a tiny Newton’s cradle on my desk that provides endless amusement and prevents me from doing any work. I have quite a few stuffed animals, ranging from kitten to jellyfish to hammerhead shark. I still dress up my nine American Girl dolls for major holidays or events. Once, when the power was out for a week, I build a cardboard version of Winnie the Pooh’s Hundred Acre Wood and displayed it because I was bored. I have a box filled with every card I’ve ever received.

9 facts about my family: My dad is from Belgium, so I’m a dual citizen. His side of the family is spread out between Belgium, France, Spain, and Germany. My maternal grandmother is one of eleven children. My parents and sisters all have names starting with E (excluding mine). My Belgian cousins practically speak better English than I do. My dad let me read our premiere-night copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows first, proving his unconditional love. I suspect our cat has summoned the devil more than once. My parents met at art school. I have two younger sisters who are talented artists, so everyone should go follow evelywin and milliezone on tumblr!
