Tag: Wanna Know You Better

I was most kindly tagged back in May by Shreya, who’s young enough to be my grand-daughter – now there’s a thought!

Shreya writes for the love of it. Her passion for writing began at the age of five, when she wrote her first book about her sister (which technically was only a few pages long, but for a five year old, it was a full fledged book). Aside from writing, nothing makes her happier than travelling to new places and learning new cultures.

Please check out her blog and give her a follow.

 

Shreya’s Questions

1. Do you prefer writing to speaking?

There are times when it’s more appropriate to respond in writing but in general I prefer to talk to people rather than text or send them emails.

2. Which was your favourite phase in life?

Oh no more favourites! I’ve enjoyed all the phases of my life and I’m not yet done. Who knows, maybe the best is yet to come!

3. If not for β€œEarth”, what do you think our planet should be called?

This isn’t something I’ve ever given any thought to but a Guns N’ Roses song comes to mind: Appetite for Destruction!

4. What natural phenomena fascinates you the most?

Fascinate is probably the wrong word as I’m interested in all sorts of natural phenomena such as the weather, biological and physical processes, tidal flows and natural disasters. I like to understand their cause and effect.

5. If you were given the opportunity to live in a different time period, which time period would you choose?

Despite my comment in 3 above, I’m quite happy with the current time period. As a woman I have no desire to go back in time. Maybe, I should go forward. What do you all think?

6. If you could make all schools stop teaching one subject, which would it be?

My least favourite subject at school was Home Economics but I don’t think that should be dropped. How about Religious Instruction which only covered Christianity. Instead of stopping it, the syllabus should be widened. But that was such a long time ago, maybe it has?

7. Which word do you think, although sounds easy, is tricky to spell?

When we were kids my Dad used to give us spelling tests on long car journeys. So how about YACHT?

8. Do you think life without social media will be better than life with it?

Social media used correctly has its uses, the problem is when it’s used to intimidate and spread fake news.

9. Describe time in a sentence.

Time is the ongoing and continuous sequence of events that occur in succession.

10. Would the barter system be efficient in our time?

I don’t think the barter system has ever completely gone away, but it does rely on participants in a transaction directly exchanging goods or services that they can provide and need.

11. What do you think is the greatest invention?

The bicycle!

  1. Hi there! This award has served its purpose. I feel like I know you better now. πŸ™‚

    For a woman, I think wayyyyy behind is the time to go to. The time when we were all cavemen. No gender stereotypes, we women probably had the same strength as men ( who knows, maybe that fact changed with time to make women the physically weaker gender) and people in general must have been more innocent then.

    I agree with the fact that subjects like Religious Instruction should have their syllabus widened. Where I come from, we don’t have a subject like that. Learning about every religion is important. Some of their beliefs might reflect in your inner self. Being a pantheist, getting the good out of every religion is the way for me.

    Ah yacht! That answers the question perfectly!
    Your dad is similar to mine πŸ™‚
    Mine gives spelling tests on long car journeys too! (I ask for it, it’s fun)

    I loved how you described time. It’s beautifully penned.

    Thank you for taking up this award ! Wish you many more!
