yourself in five words?
Earnest, Determined, Fun, Poetic, Passionate.
the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Not to solicit advice when it’s not needed!
the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever done?
Doing splits in primary school in my winter trousers. They tore
all the way down and had to run back home during break time!
is your most treasured possession?
My Nikon DX5100 DSLR Camera.
do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
Wallowing in self-pity, being trapped in believing the world owes
you the best is definitely the lowest depth of misery. You don’t
believe in yourself and can’t even pick yourself up even if
have any strange hobbies?
Yes, like editing pictures for a long time. I have a picture bank
that’s over 20 gigabytes in size. Don’t ask how many
pictures are in there!
do you dislike most about your appearance?
Well the height does seem to attract a lot of jokes, like ‘you’re
growing taller’ and ‘Ernest Sky’ and most popular:
is your greatest extravagance?
The Nikon Camera, cost me an arm and a leg.
have you got in your fridge?
A lot of water. Spread and a lot of leftovers.
is your greatest fear?
Alzheimer’s Disease. To wake up one day, having forgotten
everything and everyone. This could explain why I write down a lot
of things in my jotter, laptop and on sticky notes.
have you got in your pockets right now?
My wallet, 3 memory cards and a flash-drive.
is your favourite journey?
The one through words when I read an exciting novel.
are your heroes in real life?
Dad has always been my hero from childhood.
and where were you happiest?
When Dad told me he was proud of me, and when I graduated with my
your biggest vice?
Trying too hard. I’ve been told many a time, to not care,
but I guess caring too much competes with trying to hard, or they
go hand in hand.
were you like at school?
I was a late adopter who wasn’t so popular but participated
a lot in class. I spoke where necessary but craved the spotlight.
I had a crush whom I only told via a love letter. I was a very respectful
chap, who did not break any rules.
are you doing next?
Finishing this interview and emailing it to you!
