Thank you, Muskan for the nomination! It really means a lot that you take the time to read and appreciate my work. If you haven’t checked out her blog, you really should because her poetry is amazing: muskanreadsandwrites. Inspiring, powerful, and intellectual, I’m sure her poems will stick with you for quite a while.
1. Thank the person who nominated you.
2. Answer the given questions.
3. Nominate three bloggers.
1) Your favorite book and why?
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger is by far my favorite book. Salinger proved that writing didn’t have to be descriptive, polite, and ornate in order to be gritty, powerful, and enduring. The novel is a potent testament to the confusing and emotional years of adolescence.
.2) If you could have dinner with anyone in the world right now, who would it be?
If I could be seated at a dinner table with anyone at this very second, it would have to be Oprah Winfrey. I could just imagine her handing out the food: “You get a bread roll! You get a bread roll! EVERYBODY GETS A BREAD ROLL!”
3) One song you like?
“Perpetuum Mobile” by Penguin Cafe Orchestra. Whenever I listen to it, I think of the numerous twists and turns in life, and how it’s all part of the package. I love how it’s able to elicit such an emotional response without any words. Incredible.
4) Pet peeve(s) of yours?
Reckless driving especially irks me. Especially when people are being overtly careless (a.k.a. eating salad while steering).
5) Three words to describe you?
Altruistic, Vivacious, Assiduous
6) One thing you can’t live without?
My laptop (provided it has Wifi).
7) Favorite piece of clothing you own?
I have this excellent sombrero which is great for keeping the sun out of my eyes on sultry, summer days. Sure I look silly wearing it in public, but I’d rather not get sun burnt.
8) Your favorite movie and why?
Shawshank Redemption, hands down. I can’t even explain it. If you watched it, you’d understand.
9) What would you be if you could have been anything? (As a profession).
A doctor. Seriously, that’s all I’ve always wanted to be.
10) Your favorite superhero.
The Caped Crusader, The Dark Knight, Bats, Batman.
