As lovely as it is to be tagged in things like this by fellow bloggers, if the questions weren't on point, i don't think I'd have done it. So good questions Miss Elizabeth! (I feel the need to point out that Elizabeth is my middle name and it is awesome)
(regardless of what the post is as long as i know about it i will, always, post to say how grateful i am for being tagged)
1. What is your favourite smell?
I don't want to run off a list of cliches but freshly cut grass is up there. I also love Nag Champa incense, beer and most strong, rich woody perfumes.
2. What is your favourite mode of transportation?
At the moment, my bike! As long as it's fairly flat and it doesn't matter how i look at the other end of the journey. I do love boats and trains though. I always said if i won the lottery I'd buy a pirate ship!
3. If you could only live in one country for the rest of your life, which country would it be, and why?
Probably England because although I'm a big traveller, there really is no place like home. If it had to be somewhere else I'd go for Ireland, i love it there and it's close to England so no long trips to see the fam. I love the British countryside too much to leave forever.
4. What is one thing that you absolutely have to do before you die?
This is hard to answer. I have a lot of things i want that are essential, like they have to be done. But i guess if i had to pick one it would be to be truly happy and at peace. I think people place too much value on what you do and where you go and that making you happy. When really happiness is very personal and comes from yourself.
5. How do you feel about a woman changing her name when she marries?
It's a personal and individual choice, i don't think it should cause quite as much of a political ruckus as it does. Personally I'm torn about what I'd do. There are no men in my family to carry on our name and heritage so i quite like the idea of keeping my name and passing it on to my kids. But the whole thing gets complicated and double barrelled and so I'm really not sure.
6. What is your favourite way of keeping up on current events?
Mozilla Firefox Latest Headlines is a godsend. Plus MTV news is pretty good for pop culture news.
7. If your significant other had a terrible habit that you couldn't stand, would you tell him/her?
Not that i currently have a significant other but i think i would say. If it was something that could change, if their terrible habit is something big I'd question whether i should really be with them.
8. How do you deal with body-negative people in your everyday life?
I bite my tongue. I can't stand size 10 girls who stand in front of me moaning about how fat they are. That really hurts, less now than when i was younger, but still. I just hate the fact that society has actually done this to people. But i also hate that some people just do it for attention and quite frankly they can just do one, it's pathetic. I try and talk some people round but it just turns into some philosophical, political, social debate and i haven't got the time or the energy.
EVERYBODY, EVERY SINGLE PERSON, IS OR AT THE VERY LEAST, HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE BEAUTIFUL.
Thanks again to Elizabeth, please check her blog out.
I'm tired from all the thinking and typing : )
