Twitter Handle: @tokyo_to (@nicolewong was already taken so I chose “Tokyoto” instead. People always ask me what it means but it’s just a song by The Velvet Teen.)
Occupation: Full-time student at SFU/hobbyist photographer/music aficionado
Coolest Twitter Moment or what is your favourite thing about Twitter: I’m still waiting for my coolest Twitter moment but knowing that Susie from Style Bubble follows me is pretty neat. As for my favourite thing about Twitter, it would be the ability to communicate with so many others over time and space. In the present day, our society has become so atomized that we are losing the whole aspect of community. I think Twitter, among other things, is helping to bring back this communal aspect that is somewhat lacking nowadays.
If you were a superhero, who would you be and why? I’m not a huge Marvel/DC Comics person, so I’d have to choose Sailor Moon. Other than being a huge fan while growing up and owning random merchandise such as the Crescent Moon Wand (it lights up), how could I not want to fight evil by moonlight and win love by daylight? I also had a mad crush on Tuxedo Mask so having him as a boyfriend would be pretty nice!
Your favourite place to eat a burger? Nothing against burgers, but I don’t actually eat them… *kanyeshrug* It’s partially because I tend to eat things in layers rather than biting into it and I guess that defeats the purpose of enjoying a burger. It’s an odd eating habit of mine that resulted from having jaw surgery a couple years back.
Something you do every day? I tend to write out a list of things that I need to do on any available writing surface. If someone were to take a look at my notebooks and pages of notes from class, he or she would find that the margins are usually covered in lists.
On a Friday night, you will be: I’m going to sound rather lame but I tend to stay in on Friday nights. I love relaxing at home with a hot cup of tea and some good music. Though recently, relaxing has been replaced with writing numerous papers…
Recommend a fellow Twitterer that deserves some recognition: @Kaileey – She’s a good friend of mine and she just moved down to Australia. Show her some love from Vancouver and maybe tweet her about the Canucks because I’m quite certain that the games are not shown there.
