Beckie’s 5 Questions For My Nominees:
1. What are your aspirations in life?
You know that as with all people, my goals and aspirations have changed a lot as I am going through different phases of life. Now that my kids have grown up and living their own lives, my aspirations are bit more personal. I want to do something good for others during the rest of my life. Maybe educated people about certain aspects of life. Or spread awareness about important issues of life. In short I want to be able to say that at the end of my life, “I spent a useful life”
2. If you had $5000, what charity would you donate it to?
I would donate it to ” Doctors Without Borders” they do great work all through the developing countries on very low salaries. I really admire the commitment it takes to choose this course of life.
3. What is your favorite kind of music to chill out to?
Anything that strikes my fancy. I am not fixated at any specific genre. It should be a good melody, interesting lyrics and not grating on my nerves. One sort of music which has never appealed to me is the heavy metal!
4. How would you rate your experience on WordPress? 1 being lowest, 10 being highest.
On the technical side I would say that it’s around 7-8. They have their issues but most of them can be solved if you get in touch with the happiness engineers. The community is absolutely wonderful. This side of WordPress is priceless. I have found friends here who feel like family.
5. Have you gained real friendships through blogging?
I definitely have. I made many friends who feel more like family to me.
Kristian recently was gifted this award and has kindle asked me to answer his questions.
Questions from Kristian;
1. If you were offered £/$ 100,000 to sleep in a haunted house, would you? How would you cope?
I would be very willing to take the Challenge! As I don’t believe that there are ghosts and if there are, they can’t or won’t hurt us. I would take my ear-plugs and a good book to read. I will make an early night of it, and take something to make me sleep soundly. I would hope to wake up in the morning in one piece and of sound mind and body.
2. What was your favourite show as a kid?
The first one I remember was ” Popeye the sailor man”
Popeye and Olive Oyl
3. Do you have any weird habits?
Many! I like to do things in a specific order. If I can’t do that I get stressed out and that day is not good till I get back into my fixed routine. I like my own company. Not that I am a hermit but I don’t mind being on my own and spend time reading, blogging or playing games on my phone! I walk mostly inside the house. I don’t want to go out if it’s too cold or too hot, or if it is too late.
4. If money didn’t matter, what would you do with your life
What I am doing right now! I feel money is important for certain aspects of life but not for having a good life. At my age I would need to put aside some money for emergencies regarding my health. But other than that if I had too much money, I would probably be more worked up instead of enjoying it.
5. What is your favourite thing about yourself?
I am really grateful that I have a optimistic personality. As they say Sunny! It is inbuilt in me to try to look at bright side of things and lift myself out of gloom and negativity.
In answering these questions, I have shared a lot of things about myself. So I don’t feel the need to do it again.
As for nominations, well I leave it open to any one who wants to answer any or all of the questions from Beckie and Kristian.
I would like to give a shoutout to these fellow bloggers;
These are all great bloggers. And I have learned a lot from them. There are many others which have influenced me but if I mention them all, I won’t be able to finish this post.
If you guys have the time or inclination to answer the above questions, it would be great.
