Melanie, our gracious host of SYW, has asked us these questions this week;
Are you more productive at night or in the morning? Do you think it’s possible to change and get used to another schedule?
I’m a morning person. I like getting up early and tackling my to-do list. Sleeping in last makes me feel like I’m chasing my tail the whole day. I only relax when I’ve done all my chores, read all the pending blogs, and written my posts for the day.
I guess I can change my routine if HAVE to but I’m sure I won’t be happy doing it in the reverse.
What’s the biggest vehicle you’ve driven? If you don’t drive, what’s the biggest vehicle you’ve ridden in?
I’m not a keen driver and prefer to be driven. So the biggest can I’ve driven would be my husband’s new Altis (Corrolla). The biggest vehicle I was driven in would be the luxury coach traveling between Islamabad and Lahore. I loved traveling by bus but Covid put a stop to it. In fact, the pandemic has adversely affected the service.
What songs would be played on a loop in hell? (Suspend disbelief for this one, it’s cool not to believe in Hell, but let’s use our imaginations to answer. Of course one can always skip the questions they find odd too. And yes, I took into account that individual tastes will influence individual choices.)
Any song played constantly on the loop will drive the already damned souls mad, and up the wall! Will there be walls in hell?
(Deep and chewy philosophical question): What does it mean to be a person? What constitutes “personhood?” (there may be some diverse opinions, but we’re all mature adults in here, so be respectful of others please).
Any and every human is a person. A person who possesses a good heart is good, while a bad person is devoid of good feelings towards their fellow humans.
GRATITUDE SECTION (Always Optional)
How were your spirits (mood) over the past week?
The past week was the last one before Ramadan. It was hectic because I wanted to be well prepared for this holy month. With month-long fasting, I like to have my home in order, sheets changed, and all stuff spick and span. So it was a “ get everything done” week. But I’m glad I’ve done it and now I can relax, concentrate on reading Quran daily, and be peaceful, and try to catch up with my sleep.
Thank you Melanie for these lovely questions.
