Em’s eleven questions for the nominees (which were very challenging to come up with )are as follows:
1.What has been your favourite age, and why?
Young age when I was able to do anything I wanted without getting tired was good but it had a lot of responsibility and fear of failure. Old age where I have a few limitations health wise but fewer fears and responsibilities. I guess each had its bonus. I think I am happy to be in the age I am now because I am more comfortable in my skin.
2.What things do you collect?
Unfortunately I do have a lot of meaningless stuff which probably has very less value for me, like cosmetics, clothes shoes. I am trying these days to curb this habit and give away what I don’t need or use.
3.Do you work better with actual lists or with mental lists?
Since my memory is not that good anymore, I work better with actual lists. But I am not the sort of person who is always making lists. There are two type of lists I make, grocery shopping list and packing list. The rest is left to my memory!
4.Do you meditate? Why or why not?
I do, daily. It centers me. It makes me aware of the things I should be grateful for.
5.What’s your favourite non-mental health book/author?
Oh I have loads of writers I like to read. My current fave is Louise Penny, an Canadian author. Her style is a cross between Agatha Christie and Conan Doyle. Very interesting books.
6.How old do you want to get?
I want to live till the age I can exist independently and not be a burden on anyone, not even my children.
7.Do you think the human species is getting better, getting worse, or do you think we just do the same things over and over again?
We probably are making the same mistake our ancestors made but since we have access to a far more advanced technology, we are likely to make more serious mistakes and cause irreparable damage.
8.Do you believe in things metaphysical? Do you believe in horoscopes, prognosticating cards, and so on?
I do believe in the metaphysical, like concept of soul, angels and other non- physical entities. But I don’t believe that the future can be predicted, so no to horoscopes etc.
9.Team Marvel or Team DC?
Team Marvel. All of them. Though DC is getting better with the recent Wonder Woman movies.
10.Do you like brunch and if you do, what’s your favourite brunch food?
Not very keen on brunch.
11.Eat in or eat out?
Eat in all through the week. Eating out one weekends!
Yaasotaa’s Questions are;
1. What do you think about love?
Love is essential part of being human. It’s not always about romance, though that is essential too, but love among us in families and friends. Among us as humans for each other is very necessary.
2 jungle traking or swimming?
Don’t know how to swim so if it has to be choice between just these two, it has to be jungle tracking. Though I would be the last one, bringing up the rear.
3.Ever felt the presence of ghosts? Was it a woman or a man or a couple?
I can’t say that I have experienced a ghost. Seen them in movies only.
4. Pizza or Mc?
Pizza, of course!
5. Have you been betrayed by your friends?
Who hasn’t been betrayed in life. But they certainly were no friends. Friends don’t do that and those who betray us or back stab us are no friends.
6. Drawing or painting?
Both but on a very primitive level. Imagine a child doing it!
7. What is your worst nightmare?
Not being able to look after my physical, mental and financial needs. I never want to be in that position.
8. What is your favrourite instrument?
A pen for writing, a screwdriver for fixing thing and an iPod for music.
9. Who is your mentor?why
My father taught me the basic values of life. He is my role model and try to be like him.
1. What is the most important thing in life for you?
2. Do your friends and family support you in blogging ( or any other passion of your’s)?
