I’d like to thank Beth @ Reading Every Night for tagging me to do this!
The Night We Said Yes: A time you felt like you were on top of the world and could do anything
When I finally got my black belt in karate. That day was a mess; I’d forgotten my brown belt for the exam as well as my contact lenses (I don’t think the jury had ever seen someone take the exam with bright pink and green glasses, let me tell you), and I was more stressed than I’d ever felt in my life, but it all worked out. When my name was announced amongst those who had passed, I actually teared up a little.
Twilight: Describe a time you were irrationally in love with someone or something when you know you shouldn’t have been
(I could actually bring up my Twilight phase, but I won’t)
I’d never actually been in love up until I fell hard for a friend of mine who is very, very straight. Obviously that did not work out, and I also don’t recommend it to anyone because it fucking hurts.
Beautiful Disaster: A place or person that you can call home
My house in Greece because my family still lives there. Switzerland’s been great but it’s not quite home yet.
Fangirl: Talk about what you love most. Your favourite things, people, books whatever
This could go on forever so I’ll just name one of my favourites in life: my friendships. I’ve been fortunate enough to make amazing friends in my life and develop amazing friendships with my family too. My favourite person in the world is a tie between my sister and my best friend, but I value each and every single one of my friends beyond anything else in my life. When I was 12, I lost my close circle of friends for about a year and it was the worst experience of my life so it taught me to really treasure them.
Morrie: Talk about who (outside of your family) has been the most influential person in your life
Definitely my best friend, Sofia. Over past three years she’s not only influenced me but she’s been one of the driving forces that shaped my personality into what it is today.
The Giver: Do you feel like our societies now are headed in the direction (or are already in a state) of a Dystopia
No, I believe the media is playing up the fear factor to make it seem that way but the idea of us heading in the direction of a dystopia is absurd.
Harry Potter: Describe a moment where you felt like you where exactly where you were supposed to be, a moment where you felt on the right path
It wasn’t a moment so much as a small period of time. During my trip to Brittany last week, I got to know the people in the prehistoric archeology lab and it felt fantastic to finally become part of this group, so I’m definitely sure I’m on the right track right now!
Carpe Diem: Tell us about a person/experience that taught you to LIM (live in the moment)
I haven’t had one yet? I get the occasional ‘YOLO’ moments but they tend to go horribly wrong so I’ve learned to be quite reserved as a person.
Well this was a lot of fun to do and just what I needed to get back into blogging, thanks again Beth!
