An Impromptu Q&A


So I was looking through my Drafts folder just now and found this half-finished post that I’d started writing during my travels. I’d answered a bunch of random questions from a bloggers’ Q&A website to pass the time during a seven-hour minivan journey from Bangkok to the Cambodian border.

That was over three months ago, but I’ve finally completed it so I guess it’s time to share. 😛

  1. What’s your favourite quote? “When nothing goes right, go left”.
  2. Favourite TV show? As of right now: Master of None, Power & Being Mary Jane.
  3. Beaches or mountains? Both!
  4. What made you start blogging? During one of my first job interviews I was advised to start a blog in order to make my CV stand out when applying for editorial jobs, but it quickly turned more personal than professional.
  5. What are your favourite blog posts to write? Poems, opinion pieces and short stories.
  6. Do you believe in aliens? Hadn’t really thought about it much, but maybe, possibly, yes!
  7. Favourite colour and why? Purple. Everyone who knows me would 100% associate me with that colour. I like that it’s vibrant and I’d also like to believe that it suits my skin tone.
  8. Are you a morning person or a night owl? Night owl.
  9. Where do you see yourself in five years? In reality, I have absolutely no clue and I’m fine with that. But in an ideal world, I’d like to be a couple more steps up my career ladder and married, possibly with a kid on the way? Ok that’s scary, back to the present!
  10. Can you keep a secret? If I like you, then yes.
  11. Do you believe in love at first sight? Nope, lust at first sight is real though!
  12. Books or movies? Books.
  13. Who is your favourite actor and why? Leo DiCaprio/Johnny Depp/Robert de Niro, because they can literally play any character and all of their films are instant classics.
  14. What was the last thing you did for yourself? Washed my hair and painted my nails.
  15. Who was the last person to text you? I’m more of a Whatsapper, but the last person to text me was my uni friend to tell us that he’s become a dad for the second time! ❤
  16. Which current pop culture figure is overrated? Justin Bieber/the Kardashians.
  17. How many people are in your innermost circle? Umm I’d say 10.
  18. Three things that you love about yourself: My thick skin (figuratively obvs), my sense of humour and my determination, because I count on them to get me through the best and worst of times.
  19. Three things that you don’t like about yourself: My insatiable need to always be right, my impatient tendencies and my selfish habits.
  20. Brains or beauty? Brains all day e’rrryday.
  21. What’s your favourite book? The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison and A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini.
  22. Have you ever been pranked by someone/have you ever pranked someone else? Typically, I’m the prankster, can’t actually remember the last time someone successfully pranked me…
  23. Tea or coffee? Tea of course, I’m British and Indian!
  24. Can you hold a grudge? For a few days, yes, but then it drains my energy and I let it go. #ain’tnobodygottimeforthat
  25. Any tattoos? Nope.
  26. Can a leopard change its spots? In the short term perhaps, in the long term no.
  27. What do you think is the thing that makes you feel most relaxed? Sitting by myself near a body of water with my headphones in/ being cozy inside when there’s a heavy downpour of rain outside.
  28. Two traits that you possess which are both a blessing and a curse? My inability to settle for less than what I envision and my compassionate nature.
  29. Which skill or hobby do you have which only a few others know? I have a fairly decent grasp of the Spanish language.
  30. What was the last song you listened to? Aja Mahi-RDB.
  31. What’s in your handbag right now? My purse, a banana, an orange and a pear, a plaster, my keys, a packet of tissues and lip balm: exciting stuff!
  32. What is the last dream you can remember? Last night I dreamt that my niece could talk (she can’t, she’s a baby). And then I was sitting high up on a thatched roof in a village somewhere and kept dropping my bottle of water. The villagers had to climb a ladder every time and bring it back to me, they weren’t very happy about that…any dream interpreters out there, feel free to work your magic lol.
  33. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? Cape Town, South Africa is at the top of my list.
  34. What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? To always be original and never attempt to imitate anyone else, because your strength lies in your individuality.
  35. What is your favourite food? Anything to do with chicken, or this magical purple soup with kidney beans that my sister makes!
  36. Films or YouTube? Depends on my mood, but these days more often YouTube.
  37. One word that you hate? Lump.
  38. If you could be granted an instant wish, what would you ask for? For everyone in the world to have a strong, unwavering sense of self.
  39. Are you a cat person or dog person? Dogs, but if I had a choice I’d go with none tbh. I didn’t grow up around pets so I don’t have much of an attachment to them, sorry I’m a heartless demon!
  40. What are your favourite pizza toppings? Spicy chicken, jalapenos, peppers, green olives, mushrooms, sweetcorn. 😀

  1. Great answers. I got to know a lot about you (why did that sound like a I’m a stalker? Because I’m not. I’m more of a “I’d-build-your-shrine-and-worship-you” kind of person. Not sure which of them sounds more creepy😜 ) And it’s actually a really great advice on how to become Ranbir Kapoor in this world of Shahrukh Khans (in short, be original. Don’t copy😂)

  2. I love this. Great insight into your personality, and some of your answers put a smile on my face.

    Also just read your ‘Sick Day’ post – rest up, take care and get well soon!
