TWENTY QUESTIONS

Every blogger has a Q&A feature at some point and so I thought it might be time for me to have one of my own... I just hope my answers don't put you to bed!

1. Are you named after anyone? 
My first name is actually Josephine, which is the name of my paternal grandmother AND her first-born daughter. I actually go by Anna, which is formally my second name - after my father's cousin.

2. When was the last time you cried? 
I normally don't cry an awful lot but did cry in the past few days in frustration/fear about an injury I am having a tough time getting over. There's something wrong with my pudendal nerve and it makes life pretty uncomfortable and limiting. For instance, I haven't sat in a chair in about two months and most of my favourite things to do and things I take for granted have had to go out the window, for the immediate future anyway.

3. Do you have kids? 
No. I really want children though. The sooner, the better!

4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? 
Yes.

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot? 
Not really. It is meant to be humorous but it doesn't make me laugh so I don't see it as a tool worth using.

6. Will you ever bungee-jump? 
I don't think so. I would worry that my neck or spine would snap!
7. What's your favorite cereal? 
I am not a big cereal fiend anymore but I love a good muesli. If Corn Pops were still in Australia, I would desire them but probably wouldn't eat them as much as I did when I was younger.
8. What's the first thing you notice about people? 
I think it differs between people. Sometimes you might meet someone and they look like someone you know. Or a feature really stands out, like their hair, eyes, teeth or style. Sometimes it's their personality or little idiosyncracies. Maybe it's that they're shy or have a distinctive voice. It really truly depends on the person - I don't obsess over any particular feature.
9. What is your eye colour? 
Hazel
10. Scary movie or happy endings? 
That's a hard one! I enjoy a good thriller and all the suspense, even if it gives me a scare. My boyfriend doesn't like supernatural stuff, and I guess a lot of that genre I am a bit old for now so I don't watch that type of scary film. But I do love a good happy ending, particularly ones that make you shed a little tear.
11. Favorite smells? 
I'm a massive perfume fiend but I love the smell of Ariel Washing Powder, hair shampoos, crisp mornings, warm summer days... Hotels now have these fantastic smelling fragrances in the lobbies and I want one for my home!
12. Summer or winter? 
Both! As long as the summer isn't too humid (or too cold for that matter) and the winter doesn't have light grey overcast skies. I prefer dark storm clouds, heavy rain or even snow. But definitely not "in-between" weather and sprinkly rain.
13. Computer or television? 
Computer.
14. What's the furthest you've ever been from home? 
Europe/The UK. I was living over there for some months a few years ago. 
15. Do you have any special talents? 
I'm pretty fast at reading, spelling and grammar and get good marks for writing. My siblings call me up for help with English essays so I might consider that to be my special talent.
16. Where were you born? 
Melbourne, Australia.
17. What are your hobbies? 
I love to read. I love watching films. I like exercising at the gym or going fast walks but I have had to stop that recently. I love blogging, obviously. I also really enjoy taking photos. We have tennis courts across the road from our house and went over there to play a few times. I always consider tennis a hobby even if I haven't played in years. Can under-practised hobbies still be considered hobbies?
18. Do you have any pets? 
No, but I would love a little dog.

19. Do you have any siblings?
Yes, 3 brothers and 1 sister.

20. What do you want to be when you grow up? 
I always wanted to be a journalist or an actress when I was a child but that dream hasn't carried over into my adulthood. I did study journalism and my Masters was in Communication but I don't have the passion for it right now. I still love the media but in an observer capacity. When I "grow up" I'd like to remain as happy as I am today. I hope to be healthy, be married to my Mr. (he features on this blog a lot), and hopefully have a few kids of our own.
