1. What is one of the most awkward moments you’ve ever experienced?
Oh there are so many. It’s like, as if my life is a series of awkward moments separated by snacks 😂. On my school sports day, I fainted in a 800m running race finale competition. The weather was too hot and I had no stamina to run. It was so embarrassing because I was representing my yellow house team and as soon as I fainted, the whole cheering went down with disappointment. Then all my friends and some teachers came to help me to get up. It was very awkward. After that incident, I became the hot topic for a week and some random small kid even cheered me up like “You did your best on that day sister”. 🙈
2. If you could turn back time to fix one of your major mistakes, where would you go?
Making a decision here is difficult because I have lot of regrets. Probably I’ll go back to my school days and apologize to that one guy for not being so friendly with him. I want to say at least ‘Thanks’. He was a good friend of mine, made me smile and feel comfortable but I never got any chance to say this to him.
3. Is there anything you’re really proud of in the room you are in right now?
Yes, my paris canva painting that is hunging in the wall right now.

2: Who are some of your favorite bloggers?
There are so many. Each and every one of my followers are unique and have an amazing blogs. It’s hard to pick only few but I could mostly relate to bloggers such as Poorwa, Saumya, and Mira and they are of course, my favorites. Actually all my followers blogs are my favorites Nehal, that’s why I followed them. Duh!
3: What do you think is the best way to deal with hardships in life?
Spend some time with yourself. Follow your instinct and try to find a solution. You’ll definitely find a way out.
4: What is the biggest struggle you find in blogging?
Nominating people for the tags and awards. It’s really tiring. Sorry, next question 😪
5: What would your instant response be if an ostentatiously dressed someone who appears to have authority walks up to you and announces, “You’re a wizard/witch!”
Hip hip hooray, I’m a witch!! What took you so long to say this? Come on, lets go and make some magic portions 😂

Ignore the negativity, others bad opinions, comments, gossips, jealousy and literally everything. Sometimes ignorance is bliss. ✨

It’ll be a lie if I say no. Of course, I did. That’s because their posts or content didn’t seem relevant or any use to me anymore.
10: Have you posted a YouTube comment that got more than 1K likes?
OMG Yesss!! I got freaking 2k likes. 😭 This is what I commented on a video under “Drama in real life prank” – “These kind of social experiments should be done more without telling the truth. I mean, just look at all those guys. They seemed so happy and that girl literally made their day 💜”
