“How does your clothing style change over time and what about your music taste?”

The question was, how does your clothing style change over time and what about your music taste? I would say it changes a lot. I changed a lot, especially during the pandemic. I took the time that I had free because I was doing online classes and everything was online.

So I started exercising a lot so I lost hundred pounds during this pandemic, and I feel my clothing style has changed a lot.  I decided to make more bold choices I guess, after losing all the weight. I have always loved fashion as a way to express myself. So I have always used different clothes — I don’t know — but I think it’s definitely bolder after I lost all the weight. 

And about music, my music taste usually changes depending on my mood and on the situations that I’m living at the moment. So usually when it’s — for example, exam week, finals week, I usually play music that’s gonna motivate me and make me feel like a superhero or something like that, so I could be all powerful and really tackle the exams.
