My Answers to the 11 questions set by my nominator!

  1.  If you could do anything, what would your ideal career be? I really want to be a successful author. And an astronaut.
  2. Have you learned anything new today? I have learnt that sometimes it’s really good to be a listening ear.
  3. What’s your all time favorite book? This is difficult because I have way too many of them. If I have to narrow it down, I’d say it would have to be ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.’
  4. How would you define your everyday style? This is a simple one. What style?
  5. If you participate in a survivor challenge, what is one thing that you will take with you to help you out? My leatherman pocket knife, which normally lives in my handbag.

  6. Do you believe in love at first sight? No.
  7. If you could have lunch with any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be? Jesus. Because there are many questions I’d like to ask.
  8. What is one main goal you have in regards to your blog? Once upon a time it was to promote my books. Now it’s to stand on my soapbox and write about things I’m passionate about. And promote my books 🙂
  9. What is your choice of perfect relaxation? A good book in a comfy couch.
  10. Leather pants, yes or no? On me, definitely no. On someone else, perhaps yes.
  11. What do you see in yourself as your main strength? My main strength is probably my ability to think and then problem solve. I am a thinker, and a person who likes to know stuff, and I enjoy putting the puzzles together to come out with a favourable outcome.

My own questions:

  1. Do you like cats?
  2. Where are you from? (Country)
  3. What book has most inspired you?
  4. What type of chocolate do you most enjoy?
  5. Have you ever sat outside and been astounded by the starry sky at night? 
  6. What do you hope to achieve with your blog?
  7. If you were asked to address your nation about your most passionate cause, what would it be?
  8. How do you feel about ugg boots?
  9. Have you ever used ‘Doctor Google’ to self diagnose a medical complaint and ended up thinking you were about to die?
