Melanie has posed these questions in her series Share Your World 7/6/21 which are quite fun to answer.
What’s the worst commercial you’ve
recently seen (or heard)? Why was it so bad?
I don’t watch a lot of commercials, as I watch movies and shows on the streaming platforms like Netflix & Amazon Prime. But I intensely dislike the skin whitening product commercials, as they’re responsible for propagating the idea for fair skin being the only standard for beauty.
In a country with around half or more of the population being dark skinned, these skewed notions of beauty are extremely damaging.
What takes a lot of time but is totally worth it?
Baking! All the measuring, mixing and then eagerly waiting for my delicious dessert!
Have you ever smiled at a stranger and then wished you hadn’t? Why or why not?
I don’t smile at strangers. I’ve been told I’ve got a resting sombre (or bitch) face, depending on who you ask. I smile only if I recognise someone.
What do you think is the nastiest tasting food? (This one might be a recycled question. It’s familiar to me anyhow)
Though I do try new dishes, I usually know the type of food that’ll agree with me and am reasonably sure of the taste meeting my palate standard. So, I can’t recall the last time I had something that was truly awful.
Are you at peace with yourself? Your world? Please share, whether you said “yay” or “nay”!
Definitely not at peace with the way things are going on around the world.
I believe that there are few people who are really, truly at peace with themselves. I think I’ll reach that state of mind someday; but for now I’ll work on being a better version of myself.
