One Day. Confession Time: The Proust Questionnaire

The Proust Questionnaire, also known as the confession album, was developed in the 1800's and contains questions that are said to give a true insight into a person's personality. More recently, it most popularly appears on Vanity Fair's back cover with all manner of celebrities having disclosed their answers over the years. So I thought it was my turn...

Kind, inquisitive, loyal, independent and ambitious.

My main fault:
Impatience and nervousness

What do you appreciate most in your friends?
Kindness, shared memories and good advice.

Actress (it was always my dream), but otherwise a writer of course!

Travelling the world with family and friends, experiencing the best scenery, culture, fashion and food that each country has to offer.

You can't beat my childhood authors; Roald Dahl and Enid Blyton - they gave me a wonderful imagination and very fond memories.

Rude, inconsiderate people
