Leave me a comment with "SRS BZNS - WHERE'S MY MARGARITA" in the subject line. I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better. Update your journal with the answers to the questions. Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.
roonzil gave me these ones :D
1. Would you like to live in a different time? And why?
I've always loved the Victorian Era. Classy times, polite people, great architecture and impressive art manifestations. Jane Austen's literature was pre-victorian, even so her books gave me a great idea of that lifestyle and I fell more and more in love with it.
But I wouldn't change this time for nothing. I'm grateful for what I have and for the amazing people I've met. Life may not be perfect but that doesn't make it less beautiful 'cause those ups and downs are the reason why we are able to give it a meaning. So even though this time may not be as beautiful as the past, it's mine to live :D
2. Who do you admire most?
I'd say whoever who is coherent with their life and ideas. It's so hard to live as you preach 'cause will is the weakest link.
But talking about specific people, I guess I wouldn't be able to pick just one. I can give a lot of names and whys:
-Wilkie Collins, for his over the top ability to write.
-Gabriel García Márquez, for making a way to latinamerican writers.
-Andrea Bocelli, for having such a beautiful voice and sharing it with the world.
-Tim Burton, for being so creative and talented.
-Novak Djokovic, for being able to deal with a difficult background and his parent's pressure.
-Olivia Wilde, for having a cause and wanting to be more than a pretty face.
-Former president Roosvelt, for successfully dealing with people's expectations in the 'New Deal'
List goes on but gets boring.
3. What's your favorite hobby?
Reading, although is so hard to find the time to do it.
Other things I enjoy doing are: graphic design (but I'm so bad at it), playing tennis, watching tv, singing, drawing (but no coloring, I hate that), writing, veggin' out and talking on the phone for hours :D
4. If you could speak any language, just like that, which one would it be?
French, I love it. I love languages in general, so I just want to learn as many as I can. It will help my career too, I guess that every good economist should now how to speak/write in more than two languages right?
5. Do you like to read and if yes, which genre do you like most?
I love reading, it takes you to a different world. A great way to cope with stress and to take your mind out of some problems if you have any.
As sad as it sounds, I've never been in love 'cause I have really high standards for men. So if I find out that someone is 'interested' (this sounds so bad...) I run away, in two seconds. This is the main reason why I love romantic books.
When you read about something you don't know you can have your own idea of it, I like this. Seriously, being in love is like a 24/7 job 'cause men can be so sensitive... and I don't have time to babysit anyone.
That being said, my favorite books are:
-Love in the Time of Cholera (Gabriel García Márquez)
-Woman in White (Wilkie Collins)
-The Moonstone (Wilkie Collins)
-Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen)
-Wuthering Heights (Emily Bronte)
