Hi, Hey, Hello!
I find that when all else fails the easiest thing to do when you’re a bit stuck is to just talk about yourself. I like to think that myself is a topic I am good at talking about…(I’m not, I actually avoid it all costs).
I was just doing a bit of blog reading last night (finally) and came across this and well I also love an open invitation because it gives me an idea! And I am really running out of those right now…So I’m talking about myself kind of, what I’m actually doing is responding to 11 questions in my usual rambling fashion.
1) When was the last time you laughed? What at?
I am currently listening to My Dad Wrote a Porno as I am writing this post up, so that was the last thing I laughed at.
2) What’s the weather like where you are? How does it affect you?
It’s really fucking hot I cannot lie. My office is stuffy as hell and then going outside is somehow like sweet relief even though it’s 30 degrees or some shit. And then trains are a nightmare to deal with because there is almost no ventilation on them and I travel in rush hour. And dressing for this weather, ugh that’s nigh on impossible because the heat makes me want to wear as little as possible, but I work in an office and that’s not appropriate so…I mean on the one hand I like it because it’s summer but on the other I miss my black skinny jeans…
3) What thoughts keep you awake at night?
What doesn’t keep me awake at night?? I mean work, what I have to do, trying to remember if I’m going to the gym the next day and have to source some work out wear, sometimes I have some other ideas for things and then I start wondering if I can be bothered to reach for my phone and type them down, then I start wondering how long it’s going to take to fall asleep. The list goes on, my mind goes into total overdrive as I get into bed.
4) What conversations do you avoid?
Conversations about myself and things that involve feelings and the such.
5) If you were invisible for a week, what would you do?
Fucking nothing. I would just hide somewhere and be. Which is a really boring answer, but what else can you really do without being incredibly creepy? Also I live in London so going anywhere when invisible is a terrible idea, it’s better to be seen.
6) What’s the oddest thing you’ve ever seen? (Things on the internet don’t count)
I work in East London, I see a lot of weird shit. But obviously I cannot think of a single odd thing that I’ve seen, but there’s been some odd stuff.
7) If you could live the life of any character in a novel, who would it be?
I read so many damn books how can I only pick one??? At the moment I’ll go Elizabeth Bennett, but the Elizabeth Bennett that gets Colin Firth’s Mr Darcy…
8) When do you feel most alive?
When I start a new book and have no idea what is about to be unveiled to me. And eating a really good burger.
9) You can have a penfriend from any time in history, who would it be? What kind of letters would you write?
It would be Oscar Wilde and honestly I don’t even know what I would write about, but I feel like his would be full of all kinds of flowery imagery and language and I am here for it.
10) Do you ever feel like you haven’t a clue what you’re doing and you’re about to be found out? What makes you feel like that?
Errr, my job makes me feel like that. I feel someone is gonna be like, ‘um excuse me you are way too young to be holding that much responsibility, what do you think you’re doing?’
11) Would you like your home country to introduce basic income (everybody gets paid enough to live on whether they work or not)? How would it change your life?
I think yeah a basic level income would be good, but not necessarily for people who don’t work…I mean the State here is pretty decent from what I know of it, but I don’t have much interaction with that part of it. Either way, I currently have a full time job so it wouldn’t change my life that much. But yeah, a wage with which you could actually live on seems to be a thing that everyone should have access to.
And that’s me just rambling on about some random shit…
Parentheses count: 2. See you tomorrow!
