Q : Which colours do you like best? Why? A : My favorite colours are red and black . I think they're nice . But my parents say that these are the sad colours and They never allow me to buy black / red stuff , Because they think these colours will distract teenagers from school ! Actually , I study a lot and I've never noticed any distraction in my lessons ! That's tough , isn't it ?

I don't have steady favourite colours, it sometimes changes. Sometimes I like blue colours or pink, but sometimes black or grey. But I loves dark colours such as black, brown, dark and dark grey. I think my favourite colours depend on my current mood hehe.
