Yesterday I was given The Sunshine Blogger Award from the very lovely Eliza over at SurvivedNarc. I love these blogger awards because it kind of a great way of breaking out of your routine and letting people get to know you better. Anyway, I just want to thank her for thinking of me and doing me this honor *kisses daaaahling* I love you too!
Without further ado, here are her questions, and my answers to them:
1. What do you think Earth and its people will be like in 1000 years? (If humans still exist then). Describe freely from your imagination.
I do think humans will still exist, but it makes me sad to say I don’t think its going to be a pretty picture. I hope I am wrong. It’s just that I feel that people are moving away from things that matter, like compassion and education, and are becoming increasingly self important and ignorant. Image is become everything and “soul” is becoming very secondary. I don’t want to imagine a world where a person has to go to a museum to remember what a real woman once looked like.
2. What is your favorite book (why)?
As a literature major, I do a lot of reading. I continue to read lots and have come across some really amazing reads. This year, I have challenged myself to read 20 books. My favorite has been my favorite for many years though: Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden. I don’t know what it is, but there are some books that have the power to suck me in, like I am living it. I always had a fascination with Japan and it’s culture, but this book solidified it for me. Not to mention that I think the story is expertly told and has a great tenderness to it.
3. What is your favorite place for beautiful scenery (why)?
One of the most visually beautiful memories I have was when I spent a year in Wales in the UK. Wales is as boring as can be, in my opinion, but it has great scenery. There is loads of natural beauty there: rolling hills, clear night skies (it is the only place I ever saw a shooting star), I would even see deer from my window. They would come up so close … but I have this one memory… One day I was taking a walk. It was spring time. The cherry blossoms trees were in bloom. The ground was littered with pink petals but the trees were still full with flowers. Then a wind blew and all these gorgeous petals started to fall on me like rain. It was magical. It was like I was in a movie. It is a moment that will be etched in my head till I die.
4. If you could change one thing in your past, would you? (what).
No, I wouldn’t change anything. This is my story. Every decision I’ve made has lead me where I am today. Though sometimes I feel unhappy, I think my story has a unique beauty to it.
5. What is your favorite movie or TV series (why)?
My favorite movie? I have two. First is Gone With The Wind. Scarlett O’Hara is my favorite fictional character. Vivien Liegh, to me, is one of the most visually stunning woman to ever live. Watching her as the powerful but petulant Scarlett thrilled me. I loved Rhett too. What a pair! It’s one of the few movies I’ve watched several times.
The second is a French film called Amelie. I adore Amelie. She is whimsical and sweet. She lives in her own mind, kind of like me. That movie is pure charm and deliciousness. Watch it. It will do something to your heart.
As for TV series, my favorite TV series ever was The Sopranos. Sex and the City is a close second.
6. If you could choose any profession, what would it be?
I’d want to be the muse of a great artist, or I would be a fashion designer. Maybe both. I see no conflict.
7. What does blogging mean to you, personally?
Blogging is so many things to me. It is my art. It is my creative outlet. It is my way to reach out to other human beings out there in cyberspace. It is a way that I make friends. It is a way that I tell my story freely, without fear of judgement.
8. Do you still have an “old love” you can’t forget? (Do tell, only if you want to!)
I do have one, though I’d like to be able to forget him. He used to call me his mermaid. I will never forget our first kiss. I have never had a kiss like that before or after. It was a little kiss, but it shattered me. I actually felt a wave of electricity run through me. It was the most incredible kiss of my life.
9. How do you think the universe will end, and what will happen after that?
I think the universe will end in a bang, just like how it began. I am afraid to think of what happens next.
10.What famous person would you choose for a cell mate, if you were going to prison?
Oh this is easy: Martha Stewart. First of all, she already knows how to roll with the homies. Second, I know I’d be living in the most awesome cell in the prison. I’d probably have a lovely homemade quilt and plenty of herbal tea and all the “good things” prison could offer. Plus I’d learn so much. I love her. Yeah, she went through some shit, but she is human. She came out of it with her head held high, and her crown never askew. She is dignified and unapologetic. Some people like to hate because she is a wildly successful woman who doesn’t feel the need to make herself small to please others. Those people suck. In fact, I’d say I might go to jail for a teeny bit just to hang out with her if that was an option.
Okay so I am not going to follow the rules and nominate 10 people to answer my questions because I know some people don’t like doing these things (I do, if the questions are interesting), and also because I think I have only like five readers LOL– that’s okay, because I have the five best readers in cyberspace.
New Orleans tomorrow!!!! Stay tuned!!!! OMG I am so excited!!!
