At the moment it’s kimchi- in particular from a brand called Mother-In-Law.

It depends on my mood. I would have picked binge watching in general but I have been doing that for the last like five months so right now I’m going to pick camping. 

4. What advice would you like to give to the fellow bloggers?

Blogging is a two way street- be active on other blogs if you want others to be active on yours.

5. If you were to choose between never being able to see water and never being able to see fire, what would you choose? And why?

That one is difficult! But I am not a fan of large bodies of water in general so I would pick not being able to see water. Also not seeing fire would be dangerous because I could walk into it and get burnt to death.

The Real Neat Blogger Award

  2. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you
  3. Do not forget to link to their blogging website.
  4. Answer all the questions they have given you.
  5. Nominate 7 to 10 bloggers of your choice.
  6. Ask them 7 questions.

Questions

1. Name any 3-5 lines or dialogues from books/movies that you found fascinating

“I am . . . resolved to act in that manner, which will, in my own opinion, constitute my happiness, without reference to you, or to any person so wholly unconnected with me.”- Elizabeth Bennett in Pride and Prejudice.

Jane and Elizabeth - Pride and Prejudice (With images) | Pride and ...

2. What type of movies do you watch? any specific director or actor preferences?

I LOVE Harrison Ford movies- like literally all of them. I’m also a very big Benedict Cumberbatch and Colin Firth fan so I’ve seen most of their movies too.

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.

5. Which will be your go-to place for dinner, once this lockdown ends?

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.

Top 5 Must-Watch TV Series by the End of This Summer (Guest Post)

Seeing as most of the action has been taken off the big screen and into our TV devices, it’s only natural that there are so many great shows out there to watch. So, instead of spending your summer checking what famous people on Snapchat are doing every day, why not binge-watch one (or more) of these awesome shows?

1. Game of Thrones

Yes, we are fully aware that the latest season of Game of Thrones is nearly over, however, that doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to remind yourself of the good, old times when Sean Bean and Jason Momoa were still on the show.

The epic fantasy show has been running since 2011, with its second to last season broadcasting the final episode on August 27. HBO really outdid itself with this one, because it turned a somewhat well-known series of books into a global phenomenon full of sex, violence and freaking dragons we all know and love.

2. Rick and Morty

It may seem like a silly kid’s show, but it’s nothing of the sort – Rick and Morty follows the titular characters, a super-smart scientist and his not-so-smart grandson on their dark and hilarious adventures through many ridiculous scenarios.

This Adultswim animated show is currently airing its third season with four more episodes left. With Justin Roiland voicing both of the series’ main characters, you’re bound for one hell of a ride with this show

3. The Man in the High Castle

When it comes to alternative history, no TV show comes close to the Amazon Original The Man in the High Castle. Instead of the Allied Forces winning WWI, this show depicts an alternate North America that lost the war to the Nazis.

Season 2 of this show aired in December 2016, while its third season is yet to come to our small screens this year. That’s exactly why you should catch up to the story that features actors like Alexa Davalos, Rupert Evans, Luke Kleintank, DJ Qualls, and more.

4. Ozark

If you liked Breaking Bad, you’ll simply love Ozark. Imagine not only Walter White, but his whole family being in on the criminal activity whilst trying to avoid being murdered by a drug cartel – this pretty much sums up the plot of Ozark.

It just began airing this year with the finale of season 1 hitting our TVs in late July. Jason Bateman and Laura Linney are the main stars of this Netflix masterpiece, which means you absolutely have to binge-watch it while it’s fresh.

5. Lucifer

God, devil, religion – all of these are rather controversial topics, unless you hand them over to Fox and let them make a TV show about it. Lucifer tells the story of, well, Lucifer, who decided to quit ruling Hell by moving to Los Angeles on opening a night club.

The show is packed with amazing humour mostly coming from Tom Ellis, who plays the lead role, but it also features incredible acting and some awesome action scenes. Season 2 ended in late May this year, so better get on with binge-watching this masterpiece before the next season hits in October.
