1. What is the best compliment that you have got from a blogger?
I kept typing and deleting, typing and deleting, typing and deleting my answer to this question. It makes me feel uncomfortable because I can’t figure out a way to write it that doesn’t come across as conceited. Instead, I’ll just put a screenshot of the comment.
If y’all like reading haiku, tanka, and other forms of poetry or want to learn more about meditation and yoga, go check out Genie Akano’s blog! She’s wonderful!
2. What are the three things that you want to learn?
Swing dancing, how to properly cook Indian cuisine, and programming
3. What is the one thing that you want to confess?
For much of my life, I really disliked poetry. I especially disliked “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” by T.S. Eliot, which is now actually one of my favorite poems and was the inspiration for my own poem “Galaxies, Or Regarding Poor Prufrock.”
4. Heart or mind? Why?
Mind. It keeps the heart in check.
5. What is your favorite food?
Potato wedges. Yum!
My nominees are any of my readers who would like to participate!
I loved these questions and had to think deeply to answer many of them, so my questions are the same ones!
I have one more nomination left to go before I take a break from awards and tags for a little while. Once again, thank you to everyone who has nominated me, whether I was able to accept or not. Your support means so much!
The resource today for laughing and learning is White Savior: The Movie Trailer from Late Night with Seth Meyers. It’s a super funny video, and it points our a major and pervasive problem in Hollywood.
