What’s the worst book you’ve ever read?

From the top of my head I’m going to go with What If It’s Us. It’s the worst book I’ve read recently not of all time. See why here

What’s the one thing you can’t live without?

My phone. It was broken for about a week last year and it was literally the worst time of my life. I do pretty much everything on my phone, blog stuff, I write notes to myself, I read books on my ebook app on my phone, I scroll aimlessly for hours on Twitter on my phone.

Do you have a best friend or have you ever had one?

My best friends live away from me. My childhood best friend moved to New Zealand around the same time that I moved to South Africa but we’ve been in touch since and have seen each other a couple of times.

Excitement or routine?

Routine. I prefer order and structure. A little excitement never hurts once in a while.

What’s your favourite genre?

Contemporary. I like the real world but I also like a bit of fantasy.

How many languages can you speak?

5 languages. That tends to happen when you’re African.

What music do you listen to?

I listen to all sorts of music but I tend to lean towards alternative and rock more.

If you could visit only one country in the world, which would you choose?


What skill would you like to master?

Graphic Design. I just took a short course but I’m nowhere near great at it.

What’s the best thing about getting older?

Realising all the shit you worried about doesn’t even matter anymore and using that to not worry about whatever shit you’re going through now.

  1. You are most welcome and thanks for the compliment about our blog. 🙂 I used to crotchet years ago and later learnt how to knit as well (my brother taught me) but I haven’t done so in ages. It’s so relaxing. I enjoyed reading your responses. Cheers.
