    An interview with Pensive:

    *Why are we doing this interview thing?*
    Because it somehow makes me feel important

    *Are you sure you want to do this?*
    Sure why not. How can I let go of a chance of feeling important?

    *Who killed Roger Rabbit?*
    Taliesin! He recently realised mere theft consisting of stealing cookies from the jar again and again was just getting too good for him...there had to be more to life...such as killing innocent rabbits like Roger

    *Whose footprints would you find in the fridge?*
    Does that really need a telling too?

    *So, how old are you?*
    December 8 2010 marked my eighteenth birthday

    *If you had a personal theme song what would it be?*
    Mad World by Gary Jules I suppose

    *What makes you keep coming back?*
    People and the fact that this has to be the community where I kind of grew up since I joined the boards when I was just a twelve year old innocent child...actually maybe not that innocent but more innocent than I am right now!

    *Are you happy with the way things are here?*
    Why not!

    Should JBI get an + beside his name?
    Frankly speaking I don't care

    *How do you like your home town?*
    I love it. Especially love the foggy winters here and how it's famous for its mouth-watering mangoes!

    *Do you have any pets?*
    No and I would rather not have any

    *What makes you happy?*
    Hmmm now that's a lovely question..besides indulging in my favourite hobbies perhaps a smile, people having fun without hurting each other, seeing my loved ones happy, any act of kindness and most of all questions like this!

    *Would you choose a desperate Hope or an unknown Faith?*Desperate Hope.

    *Do you feel comfortable in your walk with God/atheism? *
    I am mostly content.

    Who is your favourite Beatle?
    Difficult to decide between 'Yesterday' and 'For No One'...

    *Given the option, what animal would you choose to be?*
    Hmmmm a mockingbird maybe...

    *What makes you feel great about yourself?*
    I can't hate people which in most of the cases is more of a blessing than a curse.

    *How did you meet your significant other?*
    Hmmmm interesting question.

    *Who inspires you most?*
    Kindness. Kind people.

    *What are you naturally good at? (Skills, abilities, gifts etc.)*
    I have been told on several occasions that I am a really good teacher.

    *What is the one thing you must do before you die?*
    Travel. Get more of my questions answered. Read. Now coming to think of it there's a lot that needs to be done!

    *What would you regret not fully doing, being or having in your life?*
    Giving up. Wasting last two years mostly trying to fit in with peers instead of doing whatever made me happy. Or more like I regret escaping from escapism

    *What method do you cherish above all others, as means to improving your life?*
    Hard work, tolerance, forgiveness, clear conscience with personal satisfaction.

    *What one thing would you NEED to have on a deserted island if you didn't have to worry over food and water? *
    A net connection perhaps?

    *If you were a king/queen for a day, what would you do?*
    I would rather not be one.

    [B]*What song is in your head at the moment?*[/B
    ]'What He Wrote' by Laura Marling

    *Which book are you reading at the moment?*
    Snow by Orhan Pamuk. It is my first by Pamuk and I am pretty sure I am going to try some more too

    *What is your favourite quote?*
    Difficult to choose but maybe:
    "If all the world hated you and believed you wicked while your own conscience approved of you, and absolved you from guilt, you wouldn't be without friends." - Helen Burns from Jane Eyre

    *Favourite Poem?*
    There are several that I like but I would especially like to quote 'One Art' by Elizabeth Bishop:
    The art of losing isn't hard to master;
    so many things seem filled with the intent
    to be lost that their loss is no disaster,

    Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
    of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
    The art of losing isn't hard to master.

    Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
    places, and names, and where it was you meant
    to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

    I lost my mother's watch. And look! my last, or
    next-to-last, of three beloved houses went.
    The art of losing isn't hard to master
    I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
    some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
    I miss them, but it wasn't a disaster.

    -- Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
    I love) I shan't have lied. It's evident
    the art of losing's not too hard to master
    though it may look like (Write it!) a disaster.

    *Would you rather be an educated fool or an ignorant fool?*
    I don't really care...as long as I am a Fool...

    *If you could change one thing about the way you look what would it be?*
    I am fine with how I look.

    *Which book do you wish you had written?*
    All the interesting autobiographies!

    *What should you be doing at the moment instead of answering these questions?*
    Studying.

    *Describe your ideal day, please.*
    Any day when I realise I have made some difference in somebody's life.

    *Wonderful Superman or depressing Batman?*
    Depressing Superman?

    *Something you want to forget but you never can?*
    An encounter with a certain person.

    *If you could relive one moment in your life whenever you wanted to, what would it be?*
    Hmmmm now that's a difficult question but perhaps I would want to relive all those days I was so eagerly waiting for Harry Potter seventh part to come out...all the excitement...it was just too good!

    *What was the best thing that happened to you during this year?*
    This year has been a pretty interesting one for me. I had to give up on this dream I had thought about ever since I was a little girl...but apparently for good...now I am studying a two-year course in one year which is quite challenging (and hopefully explains my long absences from litnet now and then) but since I am finally studying something I am good at, I am enjoying it. And this year has also been a pretty hectic one in some other ways too. And several new revelations also add to its importance in my life.

    *If you could send one thing to the Room 101, one would that be?*
    Haha my habit of procrastination. the bane of my existence!

    *Are you mostly happy with life or are you still in pursuit?*
    Can't one be mostly happy while being still in pursuit? Because I think that is what I am...

    *Tell us something scandalous about yourself.*
    I stalk

    *How long did it take you to answer all of these questions?*
    Hmmmm about forty minutes...

    *One final word of wisdom for LitNet users?*
    Laugh and let others laugh. And refrain from adopting such a sense of humour that might be a source of hurt for somebody because no matter how much we deny it there just are ways to be happy without having to cause happiness for others.

    *What question would you like to ask to the person to be interview after you?
    What do you think about the following lines:

    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there; I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow,
    I am the sun on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning's hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there; I did not die.
    ~

    Happy belated Birthday, Pensy. I remember you quite well from my original days here at LitNet. You were always one of my favorite posters.
