I was recently approached by some of my beloved readers who requested to know more about me, and I was sent a very interesting set of questions which I thought I’d share with you. They could really spice up a dry first date, I’m sure.
Feel free to copy/paste into the comments and write your own answers, I’d love to know more about you, too! (and if I’ve missed any questions you’d like me to answer, feel free to ask some more 🙂
1. Did you choose your profession or did it choose you?
Well, my own choice, which was ‘princess’, turned out to be unfeasible.
I believe you learn more about your passion as you enter the workforce and realise what you do and don’t want to do. I only discovered my love for education after years of working in the corporate world and hating every minute of it.
2. When people come to you for help, what do they usually want help with?
Most people ask me for practical advice, how to do, organise or manage something, because I am thought to be a very organised and efficient person.
I never get called for emotional support. I should probably look into that.
3. Do you consider yourself an introvert or an extrovert?
Definitely an extrovert, the loud and annoying kind that demands all the attention.
4.What are you most likely to become famous for?
Probably my ability to turn almost anything into a ‘your mom’ joke. It’s a sad state of affairs.
5. What is something that people are obsessed with but you just don’t get the point of?
Game of Thrones.
6. When do you think a person is ready for marriage?
Oh boy. You tell me!
7.What’s the farthest you’ve ever been from home?
This chair I’m sitting in, which is located in Sydney, Australia.
I’m from Germany, and this is literally the furthest from home I could possibly go.
8.What’s the best and worst thing about getting older?
The best thing is that you stop caring so much about what others think (and I mean actually stop caring, not just saying it). It is a very liberating feeling because you realise the only person you have to do right by is you.
The worst thing are the physical changes; longer hangovers, lines on your forehead and really considering whether bending over to pick that thing up is worth the back pain.
9.What are some things you wish you could unlearn?
Random brain space wasters like the names of Heidi Klum’s children or the lyrics to Aqua’s “Barbie Girl”.
10. Are you confrontational?
Definitely not, and I generally respond to confrontation with sarcasm.
You know, like a teenager!
