Okayyy welcome to daily blog post number 5! This post I actually wrote up quite a while ago but haven’t yet posted, so for today you can get to know a lil more about me. The answer’s are from quite a while ago but it’s still pretty similar now.
What’s the one thing that people always misunderstand about you?
Alrightttttt, we are getting deep aren’t we? One thing is that people don’t know how friendly I am as a have resting ***** face, or a serious looking face, I should say. It’s not my fault, I am actually a friendly person. We can have a chat any time. I think that’s why I like working in retail so much alhamdulillah as I’m chatting away with customers quite a lot of the time. People may think I’m unapproachable but that’s legit just not the case.
What scene in a movie has evoked the most feelings out of you?
I cry at all the movies lol. I don’t know about the ‘most’ feelings, but My Sister’s Keeper. Maaaaan. That’s one emotional film. Ooh, Lion the movie as well. Oh my days, especially the ending. I remember going on and on about it after I’d watched it, forcing everyone to go and watch it, too. Ooh, Frozen actually did as well, you know. The fact that *spoiler alert* Anna’s true love that saved her was her sister genuinely melted my heart. Oh, I just realised it said movie scene, but you can have all the above answers, they’ll do.
If you could change anything about your past, what would it be?
I couldn’t and wouldn’t change anything, because everything happened the way it was supposed to. Might be boring but that’s the truth. That’s not me saying everything has been 100% perfect but why would I go changing something when it only means that everything from that point on would be different?
Are you the kind of friend that you would want to have as a friend?
Hmmmm. Hmmmm. What a question. Tbh not always. Sometimes I don’t text back but overall I’d say I’m there for my friends if they need me. Man, this question really is a thinker, isn’t it? I’d say I always try and motivate and encourage my friends where I can, but would I want me as a friend? I think I’d love it, just talking about all the weird and random and wonderful things, you know, wanting to do the same things, being spontaneous and doing random fun stuff. Come on like another version of me? I’d 100% get me. But I’d probably get annoyed at myself, too, to be completely honest.
Is it worse to fail or never try at all?
Man, you have to try. So what if you fail? Literally, so what if you don’t get the exact results you’re looking for the first time? At least you’re making progress! At least you’re working towards something; you have to try. It’s worse to never try at all. Failure isn’t even a bad thing, you just gotta keep working hard and your failure will count towards a bigger goal. Failing isn’t a bad thing, you just have to know how to use it to motivate you to want to do better. And then do better.
When things break, do you prefer to fix them or replace them?
When things break…If my phone broke, I’d get it fixed. If it broke to the point of not being able to be fixed, I’d replace it. My answer is fix. I think.
What inspires you?
I feel like I can be inspired by anything. Whether that’s a motivational speech, a video I’ve just watched, people – it depends on what I’m being inspired to do. I get easily inspired (sometimes) and random things spark up ideas inside me. The part where I let myself down (hugely) is acting on that inspiration.
When have you felt your biggest adrenaline rush?
I don’t know about biggest adrenaline rush ever, but I do remember being soooo nervous before walking across the stage at my graduation. Like really really nervous. Then when I walked across, with my family cheering me on and took my selfie with the Dean and everyone started clapping and cheering again, well that was a good one alhamdulillah. That was pretty big.
Where is the line between insanity and creativity?
I remember we discussed this in uni. Hmm. It really is borderline, isn’t it? To think of something that no-one’s ever heard of before, that very few people can understand, technically that’s insanity, no? But it’s also creativity. There is a line in there somewhere, but probably far deeper in there than I can look into.
Can we have happiness without sadness?
Let me answer this with another question: how would we know what happiness was if we didn’t have sadness? Surely then what we think of as ‘happiness’ would be normal, wouldn’t it? Without sadness, we wouldn’t appreciate that happiness, as we wouldn’t know what it’s like to be sad, so we’d always be…happy?
And that was the last question for now. I actually enjoyed doing this, I love thought provoking questions. Maybe that’s why I spend so much time thinking. And overthinking. Anyway, thank you for reading! I challenge you all to answer at least one of the above questions below in the comments. I’m intrigued to find out your answers.
