Now, I did this same exercise during the last NaBloPoMo in November 2012 but with a different format. If you didn't read it then, here it is. But there are specific questions along with this post that need to be answered and hence here I am re-doing the exercise.
2. Answer the questions please.
3. Nominate 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers.
4. Write 11 questions for them to answer.
The Q&A session:
1. What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
Since it has been a habit ever since I started schooling and learnt to read time, the first thing I do after waking up is to look at the clock. The hard part is the habit stays on during weekends too :(
2. How do you express your anger?
I would say - Expressive and Supressive. Expressive when it comes to fighting with LP :p and suppressive when it comes to dealing with friends, colleagues or other circles. You know what's weird, the suppressive side of me then carries on to settle in my sub-conscious mind to impact my inner thoughts while sleeping. I told you it's weird. :p
3. If you had to live on a lonely island and take only one book with you, which one would that be?
Though my favorites change from book to book, my all-time favorite which still remains is 'The Da Vinci Code' by Dan Brown. It's the first book I read after college and it changed my perspective of reading thereafter.
4. An embarrassing moment/ fact about you?
In the past, I have had experiences of opening up to first time acquaintances only to realise they have no plans to befriend me or have anything to do with me. :(
5. How much do you let your academic success/failure affect your life?
A lot. When I look back at my academic days, it makes me realise how much of a perfectionist attitude I had with my studies. Even going to the extent of having real nightmares before result time. I know, I should have taken it a lil more easy back then.
6. Do you believe in first impressions?
Definitely. And I always strive to make the best first impression in personal and professional circles.
7. What period of your life do you think was best?
I would have to select two such periods.
a) The first one would be the initial 4 years of my professional career (right after college) as the friends I made and the experiences we had together was like reliving college for the 2nd time.
b) Now. :)
8. Do you live in present more or brood about past and fantasize about future more?
From time to time, experiences force me to brood on the past. I believe there are some strings of life which can never make you forget the past. And it should be recounted in the true sense to learn lessons from those experiences and move on.
As of now, I am changing my perspective to enjoy the present and envision positive events for the future. :)
9. Your favorite cartoon and why?
The Jetsons. :)
I was so mesmerized by the tools/gadgets and lifestyle of George and his family. I think I would like a blend of traditions and technology in any era.
10. And finally Harry potter or Twilight?
Obviously, Harry Potter. I have not read the whole series but I did manage half-and-half of the books and movies while they lasted. This was also one of the reasons why my second college phase (during initial work years) is the best period of my life so far. :)
And Twilight - Not yet got the chance to appreciate it ......... or "watch" it ! :p
Ok, ok, when it comes to some die-hard classics, I know I am not the best person to go to.... but who cares !
My 11 nominees:
10. Memoirs of Me
Go on people, tell me about yourself if you had to answer the same questions as above. :)
