I’ll start with Sara’s questions:
What is one thing you absolutely must do every morning, or else you feel like something is missing from your routine?
It’s probably brushing my teeth. The day doesn’t really start until my teeth are brushed.
Describe your sense of humor. Is it dry, snarky / sarcastic, silly / slapstick, etc.? What kinds of things make you laugh?
Silly. Definitely silly.
Name one thing you were terrified of as a child.
The dark. It’s so easy to lose yourself in it.
What is your favorite time of day (e.g., sunrise or sunset, morning / afternoon / night, etc.)?
Sunrise! 😀 Oh I love the morning sun. It’s bright, it’s fresh, it’s new, it’s invigorating. I love it.
What is your favorite song from the year you were born?
Umm…probably some rock song but I don’t have an answer.
What book would people be most surprised to know is one of your all-time favorites?
Skyscraper by Zane because it’s erotica.
Who are some of your favorite creative inspirations outside your preferred medium? For example, if you’re a writer, who are some of your favorite musicians, photographers, or artists (if you have any)?
Awesome question! Well, when it comes to creative inspirations, I mostly admire writers or artists, especially those who continue to work at their art despite their hardships. Since I consider myself a writer, my favorite creative artist inspirations are M.S. Escher, Chuck Close, Frida Kahlo, and also Peter Deligdisch, who goes by Peter Draws on Youtube. I enjoy watching his videos. Here’s a recent one:
What are some of your favorite food scents?
Curry. Onions, but only when mixed with other seasonings. The scent of anything baking.
You’ve had a bad day, and a loved one offers to make whatever you want for dinner. What would be your “cheer-me-up” meal?
Curried chicken feet. Yum! It’s not for everyone but I love it spicy and with dumplings, Jamaican dumplings.
Do you know what your MBTI Personality Type is? Do you agree that it matches who you are?
Yes, I’m INFP and yes, it matches. No matter how many times I take that test I always get the same result. By the way, the illustration of the woman on the 16 Personalities INFP webpage is how I imagine myself.
Name five (5) things you would want in your dream home. If you already consider your current home as your “dream home,” name your five (5) favorite things about it.
Ah! I love this question! Okay my dream home would have bay windows with window seats, high ceilings, light hardwood floors, built-in bookshelves, and large windows. I love me some sun.
Have you ever been to a different country? If so, which ones? If not, where would you like to visit?
Yes, Trinidad & Tobago. I loved it and I want to return for Carnival. I’ve been saying that for years but I hope it actually works out. I would say the United States but I no longer count it.
What’s the worst present you’ve ever received, or the best?
The worst….I’ll say the best, which was a gift card for books. My cousin gave me one once and so did a friend and in my eyes, they are the best gifters ever!
A book you were obsessed with that you currently hate, or the reverse.
The Great Gatsby. I hated it the first time I read it back in high school but loved it when I reread it.
A song that changed your life.
The first soca song I ever heard. I don’t remember what it was but it was love at first sight, or hearing. I love me some soca.
What’s your favorite time of day?
The afternoon. Sun is high, everyone’s up, there’s lots of energy, people are usually in a good mood.
What’s your favorite season and why?
Summer. It’s warm, less clothes, more to do, lots of sun, the trees are green, the world smells great.
What was your tipping point book? (this is the book that made you fall in love with reading)
That would be either The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, The Neverending Story by Michael Ende, or Nancy Drew and the Secret of the Old Clock by Carolyn Keene.
If you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be?
A panda! 😀 I love pandas.
What is the weirdest food you enjoy?
Probably the curried chicken feet. Mmmhhh!!
Favorite hero/sidekick combo.
Harry and Ron.
Do you like anti-hero’s? If so, why and do you have a favorite? If not, why?
I do sometimes but only when it’s someone like Bilbo Baggins who doesn’t look or act like the conventional hero.
I won’t tag anyone this time but I do have a question for everyone who reads this post. It’s one of Codie’s questions, actually:
