3. What is your take about Politics?

I think it’s just so messy- as a history student I’ve realised that you will never know what’s going on behind the scenes till years later and even that is if they haven’t done a good job getting rid of the evidence.

4. Name three Habits you want to share with us.

  1. I’ve gotten into the habit of meditating everyday which is great.
  2. I have been trying to get into the habit of sleeping and waking up on time. 
  3. I have a bad habit of fidgeting but I think that’s because of my anxiety.

Rise Above restaurant or Royal Dosa Hut.

That’s me at Royal Dosa Hut
Food from Rise Above

6. Describe your favorite Book.

It’s Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I would describe it as not your average love story because it’s not about two people who meet each other and instantly fall in love and are perfect in every way. It’s about two people with flaws who learn to love one another and work on their flaws together and grow to become a beautiful couple.

7. When you joined the WordPress community, what were your thoughts? Did you have any expectations?

Lol I had no expectations and thoughts except major anxiety. I didn’t think I would get even one follower let alone thousands. This blog was just supposed to be a place I could whine about dumb stuff.

8. Was there any specific reason why you chose blogging? (Apart from being passionate about writing)

I needed an outlet for my feelings and thoughts and that’s why I started blogging.
