Hi, Hey, Hello!
So around the middle of last month I was nominated for this lovely award by JillyPopMusic. Now I have already done one of these at the beginning (ish) of the year over here, which means that this time around I am just going to answer the wonderful questions that Jilly has asked.
1. What got you started with your blog?
I started it because I joined Creative Writing Society during my second year of a uni and it kind of came as a part of that. I keep it up because it gives me something to channel my creativity in to and it helps keep me in the habit of writing. Plus I love it.
2. Please link to your favorite post you have written and why is it your favorite?
I love so many of my posts. Mainly because it takes a huge amount for me to actual push the ‘publish’ (although to be honest it’s more ‘schedule’, because my organistion has been off the charts recently) button and not chicken out way before hand. Plus some of my creative pieces I have sat with for ages and putting them out there is scary because words are annoyingly (and greatly) subjective and while I love them everybody else might hate them.
But if I had to pick one then I think it might be Just a Little Bit of Your Heart I don’t quite know why, but when I was looking back at all of my posts I remember this one was weirdly calming to write and happened really quickly one afternoon while I was cradling a coffee (which is where you can usually find me writing let’s be honest). Plus the song it was inspired by was beautiful.
3. What is your favorite color?
Anybody who knows me will know that my favourite colour is eventually revealed as purple. Although you would be forgiven for thinking that it’s black. Sometimes even I think it’s black and then I see something in purple and I have to it (at one point my phone case, iPod case and my laptop were all purple…in fact 2 out 3 still are…)
4. If a movie were to be played about your life, who would play you?
Ya know I have had a similar conversation with my parents many times over the past couple of years and I have never been able to cast myself. Ever. But as I am being asked I have come with an answer (that is so subject to change) and I would pick Antonia Thomas (bonus, we also have the same surname).
5. Where would you like to travel that you haven’t travelled to yet?
Hawaii. Without a shadow of a doubt it is Hawaii. In fact multiple times last month I found myself searching flights for the trip. And I may have planned a layover in LA. It was a two week fantasy holiday. You can tell that it was a dreary November where I was dreaming of sunnier climes can’t you?
6. What was your favourite book or movie as a child?
Double Act Jacqueline Wilson. I had the reading of that down to a few hours I read it that much. As for favourite film? I watched Pocahontas A LOT. I don’t necessarily remember that but my parents will to you that it happened.
7. What is your favorite season and why?
I spent a whole month writing letters dedicated to it…Letters to Autumn
8. What is your astrological sign and do you feel it describes your personality?
I am an Aquarius. But I pay no attention to my zodiac sign, on the odd occasion that I read my horoscope I find that it is in no way accurate to me at all.
9. Do you have a bucket list? What is number 1?
I don’t have one as such. But my current number 1 thing is in the answer to question 5. Seriously, Hawaii. Take me there now please.
10. If you like to exercise what’s your favourite type of exercise?
I don’t like exercise. But I walk almost everywhere that I can. And I take the stairs a lot (more than I used to anyway, that comes with not trusting the lift up to your office). That is pretty much it. Walking is calming and a great way to clear my head, plus it’s a great time to listen to music and we all know how much I love that.
11. What’s your dream job?
I dare not say it out loud. It’s very He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named to be honest. But I want to be surrounded by words always.
And that’s it, Jilly’s questions have been answered. You should check out her delightful corner of the internet and I shall see you tomorrow for yet another Monday! Parentheses count: 8.
