13 Personal Questions Tag

Hey guys!

I’m back and it’s already been a week since I last posted (I hope this is a sign I’m going to be more active blogging in the new year!).

I’m actually going to attempt the ’13 Personal Questions Tag’ which apparently made rounds in the Youtube community and blogging community.

So here goes nothing…

  1. What do you order at Starbucks? 

Was the person who created this first question moi ? Because anyone who knows me knows I can’t live without Starbucks. I’m positive I end up spending a good 20 dirhams on a Caramel Frappucino because they’re so delicious and amazing. Also the Starbucks at Financial Centre knows me by name and my order by heart because I’m a frequent visitor.

2. What’s the one thing in your closet you can’t live without? 

I think the one thing in my closet I can’t live without are my jeans; I normally show up everywhere in different set of pants. But my jeans are staples in my closet and I can’t go out without wearing any of them. A close second would be my numerous accessories I pair my outfits with.

3. What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?

That I love K-pop music!

Most people don’t expect me to be into Korean pop music because I don’t look like a stereotypical fan? Also the fact that I prefer K-pop girl groups over boy groups. That always throws people off since they expect girls to normally be into boy bands.

AYO GG!

4. What’s the one thing you want to do before you die? 

This is difficult because I have a really long bucket list. But my number one thing to do is to make a film – I’ve been writing down ideas for a script and I keep thinking of scenes but I’m yet to figure out if this will fit into a novel or a script.

5. What’s the one food you can’t live without? 

Butter Chicken! I’m an NRI (non-resident Indian) and when my Mum makes her butter chicken – it’s so good it could stop wars. Seriously!

6. What’s one quote you live your life by? 

I don’t really have one particular quote that I live my life by, but I always live by this quote – “Be the change you want the world to be.” I personally believe that if you want change and if you want to fight for it; you need to make it in your life.

If it means not listening to a music artist because he’s an abusive POS then don’t listen to it, if you don’t like another artist because of the values she follows – own up to it.

Take a stand and make a change.

7. What do you like and dislike about the YouTube community?

I love that you can post content freely and you reach so many people in different parts of the world by making music, memes, videos and content accessible to so different people!

But…

There are parts of the community that I don’t like and I’m just going to let Oprah address it for me:

8. What’s your number 1 song on your iPod/iTunes?

At the moment it’s a tie between EXO’s ‘Sing For You’, Daya’s ‘Hide Away’ and Shawn Mendes’ ‘Stitches’. I always end up humming these three songs.

So much love.

9. What kind of style would you describe yourself as having? 

My personal style is a mix of chic, semi-formal, casual comfort! I like dressing up and playing around with accessories; so I’m pretty experimental but safe at the same time.

10. Two hobbies? 

My current hobbies are watching TV series and movies and listening to new genres of music. As a former film student and movie buff, I’m game for any kind of movie and genre (within reason). Music-wise, I have no problem listening to different genres of music in different languages.

I’ll probably upload my Greatest Hits playlist on here soon-ish, so you can see what kind of music I’m open to listening to!

Lend me your ears for this beauty!

12. Two pet peeves? 

Two pet peeves that really bother me is when people end up passing sexist comments about women and men and when people are really homophobic.

There’s no faster way to kill chances of me liking you than passing bigoted comments about someone’s gender or sexuality.

I’m not here for that.

13. Your guilty pleasure? 

Erm, this might come off as a surprise but I’m a huge fan of trashy hip-hop music from the noughties. When I’m at work and I need to finish a presentation really fast; I end up playing something like this.

Smh at my taste!

Well, so that’s my personal 13 tags about me! Let me know if you’re surprised by any of this or if you like this post.

Ciao!

My Year in Review

12 months is a long time.

anewbeginning

Let me start my blog post by saying thank you to all the 34 followers of you who’ve subscribed to me at random or because you think I occasionally post good content.

So for my year in review, let me talk about all the highs and lows I faced as I got my first “proper” job  which made me feel like sometimes I was getting the hang of being an adult while the rest I was drowning.

But I suppose that’s the whole point of growing up; you change, you fail, you fall and you grow. Or you do all of the following in no particular order or never do it at all and somehow make it.

It never fails to blow my mind that I’m now a fully functioning adult who pays her bills and does things with her own money and is taking responsibility for running brands on social media. I ended up building a bridge with more people I thought and I’m quite glad with the way it’s shaping up.

While I celebrate my growing career, in the same breath I’m still slightly broken at the various lows I’ve had to tolerate this year.

I didn’t get the magazine job I was looking forward to, I felt like a complete loser when one of my batch mates got featured in a Buzzfeed article about making a difference and I ended up working in a field I swore I wouldn’t settle for because I wanted to make films.

While I grieved over my problems, the world became more darker and Donald Trump rose from the ashes like an insect infestation you can’t curb. Game of Thrones killed off Jon Snow, Age of Ultron was great till you realized it was edited poorly by Whedon & Co. and none of the characters’ had actual development, and Tiffany from Girls’ Generation made a colorist post on Instagram and got backlash.

12 months is a long time to learn to swim.

And I did, and I had to because there’s no way I’m letting myself drown.

The Doctor puts it perfectly.

So here’s the you 2016, let’s hope you make me cry less and sleep more and probably end with something like this.

How has your year been followers? Drop a comment and let me know 🙂
