That’s the advantage of an older husband. One gets an earlier release.

I was tagged! ☼

Thanks for tagging me, mdme-butterfly! ♥ You’re the loveliest.

  1. What in your life has had the profoundest impact on your view of the world?

That’s a very tough opening question. It’s probably not the most important event in my life, but this one deeply marked me, so I want to share it. A couple years ago, one of my favourite teachers passed away from aneurysm, out of the blue. She was really young and one of the strongest, kindest, loveliest, most inspirational women I have ever met, so it really scarred me. But in some way, it also made me realise that I should always strive to always be kind, attentive and helpful to others, like she’d been her whole life, because it really does make a difference. I like to think that it’s my own way of perpetrating her legacy- and that if there’s any chance she still watches me from afar, she would be proud of me.

  1. If you could only ever own one book, what would it be?

Good one! I want to say Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, because that’s usually the one I think of, but I think I would actually pick Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, or Wicked, or maybe Acide Sulfurique by Amélie Nothomb.

  1. Hogwarts, Middle Earth or Narnia? Why?

Hogwarts all the way! I never quite caught on with the whole Narnia universe, and albeit I admittedly love Middle Earth, the scholar in me really craves for sorcery lessons, Hogwarts and whatnot.

  1. If you could contribute one thing to the world, what would it be?

I actually always had this fantasy of being remembered after my passing for something good I’d have done. I think I fancy the idea of having written a couple successful books, truly. And, more generally, just having made people I love happy, even just a little.

  1. What are your thoughts on large crowds?

I don’t like them. I try to avoid them as much as possible, and my reaction when I don’t can go from feeling uneasy and pissed to being sick or fainting, especially when it’s hot. 

  1. What’s the most unpopular opinion you hold? 

That’s probably far less unpopular than I think, but at the moment, and save from the many amazing friendships I’ve tied through this website, I dislike Tumblr quite heavily. I find the environment nasty, aggressive and harmful at best, and seriously consider deleting my account quite soon. But I need to find a way to keep in touch with the wonderful people I met here first and foremost.

  1. Can you whistle? 

Sort of! It’s getting better with time, but I still have room for improvement.

  1. What did you want to be when you grew up? 

At first I wanted to be a teacher -as I do now, actually- but I went through many phases. Mainly, I wanted to be an actress, a theatre producer, a cook, a critic, a journalist, a publisher and even, for a short while, a doctor.

  1. What do you think is Humanity’s greatest achievement?

Let’s be cliché, shall we? Art. Seriously. I love the concept of creation serving no other purpose than creating entertainment, beauty, thinking and pleasure.

  1. Of what are you most proud?

I do strive to always be spontaneously kind and attentive, and people seem to appreciate that about me. Just knowing I make people feel happy delights me. Other than that, I’m quite satisfied with where my life is headed so far.

  1. How often do you smile?

Far more often than most people, it seems. It used to be an exercise in order to look more affable and to feel more optimistic, and now it sort of became a trait. And I quite like it. Especially when people smile back.

Everything on my dash is Downton Abbey and everything hurts because I can’t watch it before tomorrow evening!
