I stumbled upon a blog post by PoojaG (https://wordpress.com/read/blogs/95954709/posts/3824), and I knew that I would have to make the same questionnaire, so here we are!
I love YouTube, and I think that this Donatella Versace interview was the first “73 questions with” video that I watched, and I got totally hooked. How did they do that? Apparently, the same interviews are in the magazines, but I prefer the video versions.
So to the questions:
What’s your usual Starbucks order?
I usually avoid Starbucks, and I tend to buy my coffee from small independent coffee shops that are much cheaper, and they typically have better coffee also. But when I’m at any airport, I will just go and grab Ice Tea if it’s summer or hot tea when it’s winter. As I said, I do not like their coffee.
What does your workstation look like?
I have a simple table with an office chair in front of the window. I can’t work if I have to stare at the wall or anything else as interesting.
Jane Austen. Why? She is still relevant as nothing much has changed during the years. We still struggle with our incomes, with our love life, and I guess most of us want to find the match that is above us when you look status or income.
“I said good day to you, sir!”
What is your favourite video game?
Ehem. Fallout or Witcher 3 or Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I love to play video games, and open-world games where I can choose the task and directions are my favorites, not mentioning collecting items and wandering around without any clear direction.
Guilty pleasure treat?
Sense and Sensibility, (1995). The whole movie is so amazing, and partly it’s because Alan Rickman is in it.
Phillip Pullmann His Dark Materials trilogy.
Twitter or Instagram?
Desktop or laptop?
Laptop! So that my work travels with me where ever I go.
Best advice you’ve ever received?
To forgive people all the bad things they have done and not carry a grudge with you.
What project are you working on right now
Oh man. Moving out, continuing renovations in La Colina, my home office interior design, and one million other things.
Light blue & pink
Did you get good grades in school?
In history yes! I did not like school to be honest.
I already have it; Virtual Assistant, working with Ambronite
Play any sports?
Road cycling, but honestly I have ridden my bike twice this year and done some 60 km in total. Shame on me!
Do you have a degree?
Born and raised in Finland, but deep in my heart, I’m from somewhere else. Usually, people guess UK/Netherlands/Canada.
What’s your favourite kind of blog post?
Something very personal and thoughtful that makes the reader wonder about the subject.

Experiences. I’m minimalist, so I rather experience than collect items.

Random “let’s hop in the car and drive some new place” Sundays.
