One of my plans this Blogtober was to answer random questions. I wanted questions that would make everyone that visits this blog to get an understanding of who I am. In this post, I have answered 20 questions picked from a random question generator and 5 from those that were submitted on my Twitter. This random q & a was so fun to do.
Remember, you can still read 10 facts about me if you want to know me further. But for now, let’s get into
Random Q & A with Louisa
If you could play any sport professionally, which sport would you choose?
Hockey, definitely. I was a player when I was a child, and I’d like to think I was good at it. The only reason I stopped playing was cause of my shoulder injury. My right shoulder dislocates if stressed.
Have you ever thought about becoming vegetarian
Wellll, I tried it. But it did not go well, I flaked out after 2 days. After that, knew I can’t live without meat.
Is anyone in your family vegetarian?
Yes, my sister/cousin Liz. Although I am not sure if she’s keeping at it, I probably should ask. But yea, she’s into healthy food and what not.
Are you good at managing your time?
I feel insulted. Okay, I am very bad at managing my time. This is why I am here trying to make sure I catch up with my Blogtober schedule. I really need to work on my time management and procrastination.
What kind of music do you listen to?
I am a huge fan of Alternative R ‘n’ B. My favorite artists are Frank Ocean and Jhene Aiko. But I also like the new wave of Nigerian artist. Currently listening to Rema and Fireboy DML a lot.
What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
I check my phone. First app I check is Twitter, then I quickly check my blog to make sure all is running smoothly.
Do you like weddings?
NO! I have tried liking them, but my energy towards is just negative.
What’s happening in the news at the moment?
Africa is a mess. There are #EndSars in Nigeria. Youth are fighting tirelessly for the end of Police Brutality. Some have lost their lives. Femicide in Namibia has birthed the #ShutItAllDown protests and more women are being raped. Then there is #CongoIsBleeding which shows the genocide currently happening in D R Congo. And currently, I feel like Africa is letting these people down by not supporting them. Tina Savage called upon Beyoncé to speak up on the issues. Considering she has been the one artist that has yielded from Africa.
What’s the worst job you’ve had?
My first job was a merchandising gig. I was 16 at the time and didn’t know that I was being harassed. My boss transferred me all the way to Zomba, after I had denied all the advances on me. I resigned after two weeks of the transfer.
Where would you live if you could live anywhere?
Sweden or Finland.
What is the oldest thing that you own?
I have clothes that I used to wear at 8 that still fit me now. That would have to be the oldest things I own.
Have you ever created your own website?
You’re reading it.
Do you share your birthday with anyone famous?
Share my birthday with the late Dr Bingu wa Mutharika, who was the 3rd president of the Republic of Malawi. Boom!!!
How old were you when you left home?
I haven’t left yet. Let’s try again after 10 years 😉
If you have a partner, how did you meet?
Our mutual friend made me start talking to them. Rest is history.
What kind of people are you attracted to?
I swear, I love brown eyed men. Add height to them and I’m gone.
What would you do if you had more free time?
I would blog more. Writing is something I love so much, but I often feel I drown in my work. I feel, if I had all the free time and food, I would drown myself in words.
What was the last photograph you took?
In celebration of my new hair length.
Questions asked by You….
Some kind people did have questions they asked. I hope these answers are satisfactory
1. What inspired you to be a writer?
Well, poetry was due to a relationship. Writing and bloggimg came by cause I always felt I wanted to voice out my opinion on different issues. Hence, the birth of the blog and writing journey.
2.Who are your top 5 rappers of all time?
Don’t kill me for this, but I’d say:
- Notorious B.I.G
- Nicki Minaj
- Kanye West
3. What has been your experience as a creative in Malawi?
I’d have to say that it has been the worst. Most of the time, you end up working with people who don’t fully appreciate the work that I do as a creative. Then there are the low money offers I get just cause someone charges cheaper. What they don’t get is the quality and time my put in perfecting my craft.
4. Do you support early college education, or one must be 18 to start?
Being a product of early college myself, I support it. However, I understand why the 18 age comes by. I was done with my secondary school at 14 and was unsure about what I wanted to do with my life till I was 19. But if your ready at a young age, go for it.
5. Why do you think most people don’t admit that what others say about them gets in their mind?
Often, humans don’t like showing how vulnerable they are. I know for sure that I don’t. When you show people that their words get to you and hurt you, you sort of invite more knives to your back. It is your way of admitting what hurts you, which makes people want to hurt you know. So, most times people don’t like admitting what gets to them because they are scared. Scared of being hurt further.
There you have it, 20 random questions and 5 I picked out. This was so fun if I must say.
