Whenever I’m watching my favorite Youtubers tubing it up, some of the videos I adore most are question and answer videos. I will do this again for my podcast and Youtube channel once they are up and running, but because in depth questions need to be tempered with some fun from time to time, I’ve decided to post one here as well.
Each of these questions has been randomly generated from ConversationStarters.com and are not of my own creation. I’m doing this in Realtime, so you guys know what questions are coming just as well as I do right now!
Ready? Let’s do this!
Five Randomly Generated Questions
1. Who was the last person that you called or texted?
The last person I texted was my best male friend, Chris, and the last person I called was actually an Aira agent. See, those calls show up in my phone’s recent list, but I’m not sure they should count. So, before the Aira agent, my last call was to my sister.
I actually had to check my phone for this stuff, guys, because I have no memory. It’s so bad.
2. What is one of your favorite words or phrases?
I’m only allowed to pick one? See, this is just cruel. All right, I’m copping out. I’ll choose a word and a phrase! Take that, question! (Because the question apparently has feelings. Whatever. Don’t knock my delusions, guys, it’s totally impolite.)
A Favorite Word: Fathom.
“The fathoms below”, “my love for you is unfathomably deep”, “I cannot fathom why anyone who wasn’t promoting ‘ridiculous’ as the word of the day would record a Youtube video while wearing a mixing bowl on their head!”
There is a depth to this word, not only in its definition, but in its very utterance. Fathom. It rolls off the tongue with a sound both weighty and pleasant to the ear. There is something about its depth mirroring its own meaning that I really, really like.
A Favorite Phrase: “Mommy, I love you to Andromeda and back a hundred million million jillion billion times forever and ever!”
What? I don’t see anything written in this question that says it had to be grammatically correct. It is totally a coined phrase at this point because Rosie says it every day and it is the best phrase ever.
3. How often do you use your phone?
How often do you breathe? Haha! My phone isn’t glued to my hand all day because I bounce between it and my computer depending on where I’m working at the time, but with a new iPhone in the works, I’m likely to use it a lot more for blogging, recording and filming.
4. What do you do for fun?
I work. I know that sounds like a copout answer, but this right here? What I’m doing now? This is fun for me. I know it isn’t work in the traditional sense, because I’m not getting paid for it. To most, Rose’s father included, that isn’t work. That’s just wasting time following an unrealistic dream. I call it marketing myself, and this kind of marketing, let me tell you, is a lot more fun than the dry and boring sales kind.
5. What is the first thing that you notice when meeting someone new?
I notice their voice. As a blind individual, someone’s voice, their tone, the words they use, it’s all akin to glancing at a face and gaging their expression. Only a voice can often tell you a lot more about a person’s emotions than a mere glance can. Yes, some people are incredible at masking their voice so that it gives nothing away when emotions run high. My significant other is a prime example of this. But for most, it gives me that snap insight, and I have been put off by peoples’ voices before. I’m not shallow enough to be put off by the sound, but if someone is uptight, irritated, snobbish, rude, etc., it comes off quite clearly in the voice, and I’ve been put off pursuing acquaintances with people due to that vocal snapshot.
So, there you have it! This was a lot of fun. Maybe I should do one every week. I’ll need to think that one over!
Because I’d love to keep the random fun going, I’m going to tag three people in this post, and if you’re up for it, feel free to answer five random queries of your own, in any form of expression that comes naturally to you, using the questions from ConversationStarters.com!
Meet The Tagged Ones!
For what I will dub the Five Random Question Tag (don’t you love my originality), I call upon…
Do I really need to explain why? You’re my sister. You get picked first for all the deer in headlights moments! Besides, you’re writing is incredible and I want to read more of it.
Liza, I absolutely love the way you word things, so I am totally throwing your amazing artistic self under this bus.
A.M., you wrote a whole post on personality traits and Harry Potter characters. You’re awesome, and I know you’ll kick tush at something like this. Feel free to tackle it in whatever way appeals to you! (If this appeals to you at all, of course.)
I will be reblogging your responses!
Until next time, my Treasures, I bid you a fond adieu.
