Jojo’s questions and my answers:

1. What do you do in 5 Years?
Well, I’ll just see where life takes me, which could be anywhere in five years. As long as I get to ride my bike πŸ™‚ 🏍️

2. Reading or writing, what do you love more?
That depends on what I’m reading/writing, but I think in general I prefer reading. I think.

3. Fiction or non-fiction? (or both)
I love to engross myself in a fiction novel, but I also love learning through non-fiction novels, especially about science (and particularly physics).

4. Your all time favourite book?
Sorry, but there’s no way I can pick a single favourite book! I do have favourite book genres though, namely action, thriller and dystopian novels.

5. TV shows or movies?
Depends on the genre, but for me it’s TV shows. I love the aspect of being completely immersed in the show. I mean when you have 5 or 10 seasons of a story, that story becomes an entire world in itself; you bond with the characters, you live their lives and experience everything they go through on-screen (although that might be a bit too deep if you’re watching shows like Spongebob Squarepants). For that reason, I think when watching alone, I prefer TV shows that I can emotionally involve myself in. That being said, I do also love an episode of The Chase πŸ˜›

6. What’s your daily routine?
Pre-lockdown, I was at school, which was pretty much was my daily routine – being at school. Now that I’m officially done with school and have no schoolwork, I just decide day-to-day, even hour-to-hour, what to do. Other than the obvious things, like meals and washing, I do some form of exercise almost every day and I work on my blogs.

7. Your guilty pleasure?
I honestly cannot think of anything. For real, I just googled ‘guilty pleasures’ and went through lists of them and either I can’t relate to them or I can but I didn’t realise they were guilty pleasures, because I feel absolutely zero guilt or embarrassment for them! For example, a couple websites said ‘stealing soap/shampoo from hotels’ is a guilty pleasure. I’ve definitely done that, but it never crossed my mind that I should feel bad about it! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I even just googled if it’s bad to take soap from hotel rooms, and all the websites say it’s fine!


My questions:

  1. What is the best/stupidest/craziest thing you’ve ever done?
  2. What is your favourite song?
  3. Who is one person you would like to thank for anything?
  4. What would the person you were 5 years ago think about you now?
  5. If you could pick up a new skill or hobby, what would it be?
  6. What would be a ‘perfect’ day for you?
  7. What is the best day of the year for you?

  1. Thank you kindly again. While I would love to participate, when I got down to it, I couldn’t nominate just 10! Everything I read gifts me expanded perspective, awareness or just pure entertainment!

    I will answer your beautiful questions though as my way of saying I truly appreciate your nomination.

    What is the best/stupidest/craziest thing you’ve ever done?
    Becoming a parent! Sky diving for my 21st was another pretty silly thing, as well as being in a very small dinghy in croc-infested waters in Darwin and far north Queensland.

    What is your favourite song?
    Tough… it depends on the moment. Anything by Queens of the Stone Age if I really had to pick.

    Who is one person you would like to thank for anything?
    I would like to thank you…your nomination gave me a boost…was really grateful to know that you read and liked my poem.

    Thank you for being you!

    What would the person you were 5 years ago think about you now?
    She would You have come along way from here. Thank you for investing time to dig yourself out of the dark, you are empowering me to be better.

    If you could pick up a new skill or hobby, what would it be?
    Drawing… I have been trying my best to implement it as a daily habit. Reading and writing in my limited free time though win hands down at the moment. I know the time will ease up as my young daughters don’t need me in a physical sense as much. The balance of life and parenting freeing up some more time for hobbies.

    What would be a β€˜perfect’ day for you?
    Walk at the beach. Picking food from my garden. Cooking, dancing and being with my friends family. Snippets of reading, writing and drawing throughout.

    What is the best day of the year for you?
    Every day I wake up. I know i know…sounds lame. But seriously – I get a chance to try better, every day. To show up better than yesterday… respond vs react. I’ll get there. Step by step.

    Cheers again so very much for gifting me a spark of energy. I truly appreciate it.

    Thanks again for being you πŸ™‚
