Questions written by Naomi:
(1) Describe a family member you really connect with.
I connect with pretty much everyone in my family. We all have little traits of one another and we seems to just click/connect easily.
(2)What’s your favourite TV show and why?
I don’t really have a favourite TV show really, it’s only been this year that I’ve started to watch TV shows and movies with my boyfriend. Before that I’d lost interest in it when I was about 15 years old, only watching ‘The vampire diaries’ and, ‘The originals.’
(3)What challenges have you faced in your life? What did you do to overcome them?
Too many. With the help of loved ones and strength from within.
(4)Pitch a podcast idea in 150 words or less.
Books, cats… and chocolate. That’s all have to say.
(5)What does a normal day look like for you?
A normal day is usually me waking up stressed out and panicked for no reason between 5-6am. Hot chocolate in the morning while I do my morning yoga. Then I like to check my emails, go through twitter and engage with people for a little bit, get through some chores while sorting my cats out. Then I’m reading, writing and editing. Seeing family/friends. Go for a little walk with my boyfriend while taking some pictures, play with my cats, then I’m back on my phone/laptop. I like to get a little yoga in before bed if I don’t manage another throughout the day.
(6)If there were no laws for one day, what would you do?
I’d probably take all the books, cameras, notebooks and stationary items… probably take a few things for my cats, mum, siblings and boyfriend. Probably take A LOT of chocolate too, nothing beats chocolate, except maybe the Ben & Jerry’s chocolate fudge ice-cream.
(7)What would you most like to change about the world?
I’d like to change people’s views on following trends and copying other’s identities. I’d like to change all this negativity and hate that is spreading like a terrible virus across the world.
(8)What are you most ‘into’ (excluding blogging/writing)?
That’s a hard one since writing has always been such a big thing in my life but I guess then I’d have to say anything really. At one point I’d gotten myself into piano/keyboard. I bake, read, take pictures, make memories, anything to pass the time.
(9)Where would you like to be in ten years?
I’m not too sure as I’ve been learning not to really focus on the future but rather the present. I like to take small baby steps otherwise my anxiety takes over.
(10)Write a description of yourself from the perspective of a Superfan.
Oh boy, I’m not sure… I’m just going to leave this blank for now.
(11)What pet’s would you like to have and why?
If I didn’t have pets and if it was allowed I’d have fish again. I really loved having fish when I was a little girl and I’d like to have them again at some point. Another pet I’d like to have is a Border Collie, I’ve had friends and neighbours with this breed of dog and they are simply the most enjoyably little creature ever!
Questions Written by Leo:
(1)Describe yourself in 5 words?
Observant, friendly, peacekeeper, passionate
(2)Do you have a guilty pleasure and what is it?
My guilty pleasure is reality TV shows. Although I never used to watch TV that often when I did, I did like to watch a few reality shows.
(3)If you could be in charge of the government for one day what would you do?
Probably right as much of their wrong doings as I could. I’m not too sure.
(4)What 5 things do you want to accomplish in the next five years?
– I want to finally finish my novel
– I want blog to be better known
– I want to have my ‘LittleTinkablee Anxiety Candles’ Range finally out into the world
– I’d like to have a better handle on my life
– Lastly, I’d to be able to have progressed much further in my yoga practice.
(5)What does your blog mean to you?
My blog means everything to me. It’s a little piece of who I am, with little bits of my memory and life embedded into it.
(6)Why did you become a blogger?
I became a blogger in the hopes that it would help with my sever anxiety, to share my journey and progress with my eating disorder, to get my things out there and to have a place of the internet I was able to say was mine! I did it so I could better connect with others and help push my dream of becoming an author. I became a blogger because I love to write, because writing has always been a big part of my life from the moment I was able to. But I also became a blogger to help others and spread some pomposity in this darkening world.
(7)What would you say to your ten year old self? Based on what you know about your life now?
Never listen to others and never let them make you lose sight of who you are. You are more than enough and never stop climbing, it’s makes you feel free and free is something you are always going to need to feel.
(8)what is your favourite movie and why?
School of Rock has been my all times favourite ever since it came out, I’ve always loved Jack Black and I remember my mum buying me the DVD of it for Christmas when I was younger. I can watch that film over and over and never tire of it!
(9)If you could have a dinner party with any famous person (Dead or alive) who would it be and why?(3 people Max).
Amy the lead singer of Evanescence Eminem and Ed Sheeran or maybe David Gray? – I love all their songs and I think they are amazing musicians! I grew up listening to all of these artists (except Ed Sheeran) My brothers would play a lot of Eminem, my mum loves Evanescence and she’s the one who got me into David Gray, he just has such an amazing voice! And, when Ed Sheeran came about I instantly fell in love with his voice!
(10)Why is it important to help others?
Because without the help of others I know I wouldn’t have made it this far… I know what’s it like to need help and it’s important to offer that help, otherwise no one would help anyone and I can’t see that being a good thing. Plus it makes me feel good knowing that I’ve helped someone out.
(11)If a movie about your life came out, who would you want to play in the film.
I literally have no answer for this one. I don’t ever think my life should become a movie.
