The lovely Pannaga a.k.a iamswiftwalker from over at Just Dreamland interviewed me as part of a guest post for her blog and I had planned to reblog it, but we decided that readers can never read reblogged posts, ’cause it’s only half visible. So, I am reposting it. Panna is a one of the most cheerful person I have ever met, so if you don’t already know her, do check her out.
I take my leave from here. It’s gonna be all Panna’s writing from here onwards. ✌️
Hey P-E-O-P-L-E!!! How are y’all? Today, we have Ashmita(Ash for me)- @The Fictional Journal here. And I’m gonna do an interview. It’s not really long, but I’m telling you, it’s super fun!!! Also, if you haven’t followed her already, YOU ARE MISSING OUT! She posts super fun bookish content. And me being a big lover of books, that I am, her blog is 1 of my favorites!!!
Onto the interview:-
(P: Pannaga ; A: Ashmita)
P: So, let’s begin already! What would you name your boat if you had one?
P: Ooooo! I just Googled the meaning and wow! I’m impressed! Ok, next. What’s the most useless talent you have?
A: Sit idly, and stare at the wall for a long, long time.🤐 And do nothing but imagine stuff.
P: Not relatable. But anyways, moving on. If you could get a tattoo, what would you get?
A: “I am not sure” in fancy lettering and “Nobody breaks my heart” in type letters.
P: Cool! What’s a body part that you wouldn’t mind losing?
A: A single strand of my hair maybe.😂
P: Nice answer Ash! I like it! Which fictional character would be the most exciting to meet in real life?
A: The one I create 😉
P: Your answers are!! Next. What is the best and worst purchases you’ve ever made?
A: Best: books Worst: books again.
P: This, I can relate 😃 I still have that unread, unopened Wuthering Heights under my desk, in the same place. If you had to change your name, what would your new name be, and why would you choose that name?
A: I like my name. So, maybe Ash.
P: Yay! I call you Ash!! What’s your biggest screw up in the kitchen?
A: I tried to make a pizza dough once. Like the whole entire base. It..uh..was edible.
P: It must be, if you are here with me for the interview 😉 What problem or situation did TV / movies make you think would be common, but when you grew up you found out it wasn’t?
A: Making real friends.
P: I agree! What’s something your brain tries to make you do and you have to will yourself not to do it?
A: I talk at a super human speed when I am nervous, scared, excited or happy. My best friend is the only one who understands me.😂
P: Oh! Well, I mix up words if I am nervous or all of the above. Like, you wouldn’t understand what I am talking if you don’t know me. Kay, next up. If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask?
A: Probably about my future or maybe regarding a fictional world, but I kinda like this open ended kinda thing, where I get to believe what I choose to believe. And although, not knowing scares me, I think knowing knowing would take away my happiness. So, nothing really. 😅
P: Yup! Me too! I wouldn’t ask anything(except maybe about when I am supposed to die according to my future?) What ridiculous thing has someone tricked you into doing or believing?
A: Scream- ” I am king kong”, in the middle of a park. [Yeah. I did that.]😶
P: You brave girl(more like reckless)What movie trope annoys you the most?
A: Characters getting together during the last few minutes with no build up whatsoever. 😐 This is just downright annoying.
P:True! If your life was a movie, what songs would be on the soundtrack?
A: Love Story by Beth, Someone To You by Banners, Count On Me by Bruno Mars, Older by Sasha Sloan, Welcome to Wonderland by Seabra.
P: Haven’t heard any of them😛 Forget it. Next, if someone painted a portrait of you, how would it look (clothes, background, pose, etc.) and what else would be in the painting with you?
A: Definitely shorts, something black 🖤 some sorta comfy position, books and hopefully my phone and headphones. And background, I don’t really care as long as there are no mosquitoes and lizards.
P:Your description sounded like a book cover 😄 What technology from science fiction do you wish existed?
A: Time travel.
P: Yup! I want that too. Doraemon has made me dream a lot about it! What would your perfect Saturday be like?
A: Sleep. Read. Listen to music. Go for a long, long walk. Repeat. (😅😂)
P: I don’t think it’s boring. Because, I’m sure that’s what most of us wanna do. What’s something that people think makes them look cool but actually has the opposite effect?
A: Uh…I don’t mean to offend anyone, but there are some people who think that using swear words in literally every sentence is cool. I mean, swearing is fine. But this..😑
P: Gallopin’ Gorgons, why? I mean, bloody hell! You are effing offending Ronald Weasley here! Hehe! Next, what lies do you most often tell yourself?
P: Hmm! Interesting! What was one of the best days of your life?
A: I want to say the day I found out about the online Bookworm’s community🥰 but that’s too obvious. So…I will go with the day I realised that my bestie is my bestie. (Does it make sense?)
P: Yup! it totally does!! What fact amazes you every time you think of it?
A: “Common sense is the most uncommon thing.” 🤣
P: Haha! How did you find out that Santa isn’t real?
A: I always knew. I mean..😂 I just don’t remember not knowing. My parents were not that inconspicuous, I guess.
P: I get it! I mean, I don’t remember believing in Santa. What is the strangest habit you have?
A: I google random stuff. I mean it. For example – why is an octopus, an octopus?🐙🙄
P: Must tell this. Even I don’t do that! Tell me about your love life**wiggling eyebrows**(crush, bf,anything)
A: I am guessing fictional doesn’t count. So, no. What about u, panna? 😈
P: Aha! Dodging the question I see! We talked about mine after we completed the interview 😉 What impression do you try to give when you first meet someone?
A: Uh…no idea. 😅 Confident maybe, but I am pretty sure that I fail 😂 You tell me.😁
P: Nope! You don’t fail! What is the best and worst part of your personality?
A: Best: I like the truth. Worst: I can get obsessed with the truth even if it has nothing to do with me. 😅😂
P: Ohkay! If you could author any book, which would you choose and why?
A: Pride and Prejudice. 😇 Why? I mean just imagine being the author of The Timeless Love Story. The original – “Enemies-to-Lovers” 🤩
P: Not read it! I don’t do well with classics or so I think. Anyways, if you wanna tell me something, tell me now. Just be honest and tell me whatever you want to(good/bad)
A: You are an awesome poet! You are a gorgeous human being and I LOVE being your friend 😘 (ps. I hate BTS).
P: Thank you! And ditto!!!! 😉 Also, I know you have had your “Moment of Truth” about BTS by now Ok, so the last question!! If you wanna ask me something, ask me now! Directly!! Also, what will you dedicate to me?
A: I want to say all the above questions, but that’s insane so…uh…are you taller than me? And I don’t think I will ever be able to create something worthy of dedicating to someone. But if I do, it’s most probably gonna be a story or a book. So, panna, a story – all for you. 😇❤️ That was difficult 😅😂
P: Yup, answering all the questions again, is indeed insane! Also, yeah Ash! I am!!! 😃 I am 5’5!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m proud of it even though some of my friends are taller than me! And!!! Super!! I mean, no one till now has dedicated a poem, much less a story or a book to me. And if you ever get to write it, then that’ll be super cool!!! And thanks a lot for being here with me Ash! Loved your answers!!!
So? How was this interview? I found Ash’s answers pretty savage(don’t ask me why, and I’m telling it in a good way) And I like savage people! Anyways guys, got to go now! I’ve got stuff to do! Bye!
Thank you soo much Panna for doing this! I had a great time!
UNTIL NEXT TIME!
