I cannot wait to read everyone’s responses, and I hope you enjoy mine!
If you could meet up with anyone, dead or alive who would it be?
WHAT A GREAT QUESTION. Aghh, it is so tricky to pick! I think the shortlist would be Barack Obama, JK Rowling, Jane Austen (bae) and Malala Yousafzai (what an absolute legend). Probably not together, but also let’s just take a mo to imagine those conversations. Dang.
What is your favourite movie and why?
I love a lot of movies ngl and it depends what I’m in the mood for on the day. One of my all time faves is 1996, Twister. Also up there would be HP and the Prisoner of Azkaban, August: Osage County, About Time, LOTR Two Towers, Three Billboards outside Ebbing Missouri, and Avengers Infinity War.
What fictional place would you most like to visit and why?
Hogwarts, because who wouldn’t?? I could live the HP dream and sit in the common room, tackle the staircases and have dinner in the Great Hall. I would have said Hobbiton but I’m hoping to visit the actual set one day, so it feels kinda less fictional tbh since I know it’s out there in the middle of NZ.
What Hogwarts House are you a member of?
Well on Pottermore I’m a Hufflepuff, but the sorting hat at HP world in Hollywood told me Gryffindor soooo for Ron, I’m gonna go with Gryffindor. Mainly to get a knitted sweater from Mrs Weasley for Christmas.
What was your favourite holiday and why?
Last year my family and I went to the states and did a road trip of California, Nevada and Arizona. It was amazing, and I have so many incredible memories from that holiday, including watching the sun set over the Grand Canyon.
What do you want for Christmas?
Probs more pyjamas. I just love them.
What do you wish you could spend less time doing?
Driving. I seem to be driving everywhere, I wish I could walk or cycle instead, but I think the hour drive to Leicester might take a tad too long to walk.
How different was your life a year ago?
Incredibly different, I can’t really believe how much has changed. A year ago I lived in York, I was single, a full-time student, poorer, more anxious, I’d just put a play on about a day in the life of your teeth. OH and I’d just accidentally stabbed myself in the hand with a butter knife as I was super stressed! Would not recommend. FYI stress kills. I’m now working two jobs, doing an MA one day a week, blogging more regularly (huzzah), in a relationship, and living in the south – where I belong.
What are you most likely to become famous for and why?
Hmm I think writing, if not then as a Shakira or Korg impersonator. Give me a drink and you’ll see what I mean.
What do you think your spirit animal is and why?
I’d say a dog, because I’m kinda unpredictable, scatty, weird and yet loveable.
What movie or TV show impacted your life most?
I’d have to say Friends mainly because I’ve watched it sooo much over the past 8 years or so, I’ve practically gone through my teens watching an episode a day. Whatever my mood, Friends is the solution.
