Get to Know Someone With 20 Questions + A look at how I answered them

A common activity when you first meet someone is a game of twenty questions. Since you are reading my little blog, I have come to the conclusion that you want to get to know me better. So I decided to make up a list of questions and answer them here so that you can better understand me. Some of these questions are pretty simple, while others are a little more personal but I hope that through them you can understand me a little better. So here goes

I answered these twenty questions.
They say twenty questions is one of the best ways to get to know someone fast.
  1. What are three things you are passionate about?

    One thing you will quickly learn about me is that I am an extremely passionate person. In particular I have a passion for literature, fitness and human rights.

  2. What makes you happy?

    This may sound really weird but I am a workaholic. There is nothing I like better than to be busy, working hard and being productive and finishing the day tired but happy. I love to learn and to succeed and unfortunately both of those require hard work. As much as I love my downtime, after too long I start to get bored and disappointed in myself for not being productive.

  3. What do you feel is the biggest life lesson you have learnt so far? 

    Sometimes no matter how much you want it, you aren’t going to be successful.

  4. What is one thing you want to teach your children?

    To strive for success. Not to work because you have to, but because you want to.

  5. Are you a dog or cat person?

    Totally a cat person! I love my cat!!

  6. What makes you angry?

    Ignorance. Nothing makes me angrier than people making important decisions, or discriminating against another individual or group, or broadcasting their own opinions when they have not taken the time to properly research the subject. You are negatively impacting the lives of others and yourself through sheer ignorance!

  7. What would be your perfect day?

    To wake up naturally and go for a workout before spending the day lying in the sun reading a book.

  8. What is the first impressions people get about you?

    I am a shy introvert, so I often come across as rather quiet and people have even told me that they thought I didn’t like them! I do take awhile to get to know people but I do relax once I get to know you.

  9. What is your favourite childhood memory? 

    Attending a sports tournament with my team when I was thirteen. It was a really relaxed, fun atmosphere and we got to travel to a new place and stay together as a team. We ended up winning that tournament too which was a bonus!

  10. What do you do when you are stressed?

    I usually try to calm myself by repeating multiplication tables-nerdy I know haha. I generally retreat inside myself as well.

  11. How do you feel about your family?

    I love my family, and even though I come from a big family I appreciate its size and we are all close to each other.

  12. What is your most embarrassing moment?

    I get embarrassed pretty easily, but I don’t think anything major has happened to me that I can recall. Just things such as accidentally putting on a shirt inside out or confidentially calling out an answer in class to a question and getting it wrong.

  13. What is your dream?

    To make something of this blog and of myself. To work to bring equality to the world. And to be happy.

  14. If you could magically receive one quality, what would it be?

    I would like to be able to turn invisible.

  15. Name three of your favourite foods.

    Raspberries, chocolate and pavlova

  16. What are you grateful for in life?

    My upbringing. I come from a small town in what I believe to be one of the best countries in the world. I am grateful for that.

  17. What is one lesson you learnt from failure?

    Sometimes you have to walk away.

  18. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

    I want to be taller.

  19. What is your favourite book?

    Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine. It is amazing!! I totally recommend it for those who like historical fantasy novels.

  20. What are your goals for this blog?

    To enjoy writing and reading and connecting with people worldwide. Lets help make that goal a reality!

  • Alura, I enjoyed reading this 20-questions post to get to know you. You are young and already on your way to becoming one awesome woman, I can feel it! Hehe. I am an introvert too but when I was 18, I was just starting to know myself, but bear in mind, it was the time when the internet was very young. Now that I’m quite old, I would say that I’m a friendly introvert! I need my personal space more than an extrovert but I can finally say that I’ve accepted myself and now, learning to enjoy social interactions, no matter how small. I love cats too! I hope you will post more about your very cute cat 😉

    PS: You’re right about New Zealand! Everyone here in Malaysia (okay, those few that I know of) speak fondly of your beautiful country! It is so cool you are from there 😀

    • Thank you so much for your comment! You are officially my first one so I was very excited when I read it!! I’m definitely learning to be a “friendly introvert” and I am enjoying social interactions more than I used to-It used to just tire me out!! I will have to do something with my cat one day-she is honestly gorgeous!! You definitely should try and come to New Zealand if you can!! It truly is beautiful

      Thank you for your comment!
