Joel, a blogger from Luxembourg, nominated me for a Liebster Award and today I'm answering his questions.
If vegan living became a law, you would... ?
Really welcome the idea. I don't eat meat anyway and I don't think that it would be difficult for me to become a vegan. If it were a law, there would be vegan products all over the place and it would be easy to "buy" that lifestyle.
What has been your most embarrassing moment?
Once I had the great opportunity to shake hands with Bill Clinton and all I could say to him was, 'Thank you!'. Still cringing when I think about it.
You're allowed to reinvent yourself entirely. Who would you want to be or what would you change?
I would still choose to be myself with all my faults, weaknesses and crazy thoughts. By learning from my mistakes, I can become a better version of myself.
You may play in the sandbox. What will you build?
I never had the patience to build anything when playing in the sand... Maybe I would draw patterns like in a Japanese zen garden.
Letting go means having free hands. What will you 'grasp' first?
Just being grateful for what I have and accepting the way things are. Easier said than done though.
Your life is made into a movie. Which actress will play you?
I would probably have to play myself. I can't think of any actress that looks like me...
A milestone birthday is coming up. What will you be doing?
I would do what I do for most other birthdays: celebrate with my family, celebrate separately with friends, buy myself a gift and go on a trip.
About blogging: how did you come up with the title of your blog?
I was looking for one unique word. Being from Luxembourg and once in a while loving to surround myself with luxurious things, I came up with LUXESSED. Every other month I'm thinking about changing it, but so far I haven't found a better alternative yet.
What would be your first official act as a good dictator?
I would encourage people to be positive, loving and reward them for it.
As a child, what food weren't you able to eat and still disgusts you today?
Beef tongue. Yuck.
You are supposed to write the ultimate flattery. Who would you dedicate it to?
I would dedicate it to my parents because they have always been there for me and only ever have wanted the best for me.
Thanks Joel for these interesting questions!
