Questions:

If you could change something what would you change? 

Oh, question, with your non-specifics! You know what? I’d like to change myself so that I would have less of a temper and anger. A lot of the world is how it is meant to be, and the idea of hoping for a change from war or poverty seem to big to be changed (that is, they are an essential part of what Earth is like). Thus, I would change myself for the better.

If you could relive one day, when would it be?

In my own life? I guess I’m most happy when entertaining others and one of my happiest moments this year was when I sung a choral solo at a mass of the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul, written by one of my best friends. Although a bittersweet day in that I knew he was leaving, I felt that, with that, I was doing what I was meant to.
Too, participating in a Choral Society to sing Faure’s Requiem was a wonderful evening.

What’s one thing that really scares you?

I’ve always been afraid of failure, but what scares me more is losing the people I really love. When you think you have something…and it slips away so easily. That scares me: that reaching out to nothing.

What one dream have you not completed yet, and do you think you will be able to complete it? 

Ooh, I have many dreams – all currently unfulfilled – so many so that I may have a top five. The #1 I daren’t say because it a dream that relies on the participation of not only myself. Ironically, it’s probably the hardest, but I have many routes to it. I’m impossibly ambitious like that. The second is to get into my first choice university. Although reachable, this is one of the goals that takes many a running jump at. I’m on the path…not yet at the hill.

If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be?

DSuchetGoogleI would choose a number of people, but I don’t think a day would be enough to fully understand the ups and downs of their lives. Being me, I would then opt for a fictional character and, surprisingly, a man. Hercule Poirot has a brilliant intellect and he gets to solve puzzles, problems and investigations on a daily basis, being a private detective in the 20s and the 30s. Although Poirot’s life is sometimes threatened by his meddling, it doesn’t happen on a daily basis. Yay, mysteries!

Because I’m somewhat in a rush and I’m unsure to whom to nominate this, I’m openly saying: if you want to answer these questions of the REALITY award, feel free to do so and leave me a link back 😉

  1. I’m surprised you didn’t say you’d like to be Sherlock. 😉 Have you ever watched Remington Steele? It might be fun to be Lara Holt for a day. After you have When the Clock Broke all polished up you should write a female detective mystery. 🙂 unless you’ve already written one. I wouldn’t be surprised.

    1. Ah, Sherlock’s awesome, but he gets shot at far too many imes in a week! I think I’d prefer to live in the 30s, as well.
      I haven’t, actually. I should definitely watch more murder mysteries – at least, more modern ones.
      Actually, I’ve written one and its sequel, and another, both of which are YA. I began a mystery based around a middle-aged divorcee (where her ex-husband is murdered), but I’ve not yet had the chance to get back to that.

  2. Your #1 fear is very well said – that fear of reaching out to nothing. I didn’t list that as one of my fears (I think it got beat out by flying wasp/spiders…), but I would definitely agree with you that the idea of losing loved ones is very scary. Thanks for sharing your answers! 🙂
