Thanks to Cee’s Photography for the questions…
What object do you always have with you when traveling and why?
iPhone and/or iPad so I can stay connected to my virtual world and most importantly, mum. I carry a notebook and pen in case one or the other battery dies. I always have my hair straightener and favourite hoodie. I carry my hoodie because I always end up in cold places i.e London.
What subject would you like to study in depth, if given the time to do so?
I’ve always been fascinated with weather systems but in secondary school I didn’t really have an aptitude for science, or at least that’s what I was told. Looking back I think it was more disinterest and laziness. How many 16 year olds truly pay attention in Physics class when cartoons and poems can be drawn in the back of their exercise books? Perhaps I could venture forth into the scientific world… who knows what will happen?
Which would you prefer: a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood?
The former. I find the twists and turns, the ups and downs, and the loopy loops all make lives interesting and worth living. I’m a firm believer in that every moment good or bad happens for a reason and is a piece in the puzzle of you.
What are your favorite spices?
It’s hard to say whatever shows up in Mums curry (I have no idea!). I am a big fan of the Chinese Five Mix that can be found in the corner shop. It’s a great addition to wake up my poor humble build-your-own stir frys.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful for the good karma bestowed on me by the universe last week not only did I successfully complete NaPoWriMo 2014 over at Always Chum Poetry: Life through the eyes of a Melbournian; I also found out that I successfully passed my exam at work.
This week I am excited about Think Pink Day at work on Friday. It is an annual fundraising event where we go pink and raise money for our family, friends and colleagues running in the Mothers Day Classic to raise funds and awareness for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. I am also looking forward to spending Sunday with my dear mum for Mothers Day.
