Would You Rather Questions are fun to do and they actually get you to think quite a bit, so today I thought I would try this tag as a blogging challenge. I have picked my favourite questions and some interesting ones so join me as I discuss them. Oh, and comment your answers below!

I would rather be stranded on a island with someone ‘that I hate’ rather than alone. There are many reasons for this, one of them being that I would have a higher chance of survival.
And besides, hate is a strong word and not many people fall into that category. I think that if you were with someone, trying to survive would probably bond the two of you together so you might even leave as friends. Haha! Imagine that. You could help each other get some shelter, find food etc.
Even just knowing that you’re not stuck there by yourself would be quite comforting. So yeah, I would to have company even if we aren’t the best of friends.
Easy. Those of you who know me well know that I ABSOLUTELY love Languages. I love hearing different languages, I I love learning them too.
Speaking to animals could be quite cool. But perhaps also quite freaky. I mean I would not want to eat an animal that I could speak to. It would make things a whole lot more complicated. If animals could talk to me/or I could talk to them, I think I would have to remove chicken, beef, fish etc. from my diet.
So yep, I think I would happily chose to be able to speak foreign languages. That would be so impressive too. You would be able to make a deeper connection with anyone in the world and speak the language of their heart. Now that would be pretty spectacular. It would also make travelling so much easier.
I would probably choose the brains, rather than be the most popular. For starters, the purpose of school is to learn and get valuable skills. So popularity isn’t exactly top of the list.
Besides, school eventually ends, then you have to roll up your sleeves and enter the real world. So it would totally do me more good to excel at school work than in the cafeteria or whatever.
I would choose to be that smart kid in movies who figures out how to do something phenomenal and nerdy – the one who solves the problem and helps their friends. The smartest kid would enjoy school, breeze through lessons and probably be done quicker. Not a bad idea?
Ooh difficult. Yes I had to think about this one for a while, because both of those things are quite important to me. Hot food and Hot Showers are a couple of those little things that make life special and that can comfort you. But… I think I would stick to my Hot food.
Imagine life without crispy Hot chips (French fries) or without a Hot curry or even very warm cookies. No. That would be too much. Hot showers are nice and relaxing, but cold food just would not do. Most meals are served Hot, so would I have to live on snacks? Or food that has been left out for ages? Nah. I would rather have a lukewarm or even cold shower. That wouldn’t be too bad.
The Wave. Waves are fascinating, the way they move and keep on going, curling again and again.
Waves are the ocean, the sea. They hold secrets of the world under water. They are powerful and strong, and not even the strongest human can fight a mighty wave. (Poetry and word pictures are fun, ok).
Sandcastles on the other hand, are pretty but can easily be knocked down by a toddler running around a beach. They don’t stay around for very long, maybe for a few hours till someone gets bored and leaves.
But there is just something about waves that makes them majestic and incredible, or maybe it’s everything about them. Of course they are not living, but they just seem to be control of the shore and have this certain independence and freedom about them. They represent strength, consistency and contentment.
Am I thinking too deeply? Lol, maybe.
*flinches and ( and pretends to think about technology) but chooses clothes *.
Tech is cool, but I would still choose to spend my money on good quality clothes and outfit pieces.
The thing about gadgets and technology is that it is a rapidly changing industry. They are always making the next ‘Bigger and Better Version’, so I don’t know, it would feel like running around in circles. A few months later my gadget would be outdated or I would be interested in buying something else that does a similar job .
My favorite outfits on the other hand tend to stay special for longer. Maybe this is a girl stereotype, but I find clothes and fashion shopping more interesting that buying a gadget.
But to be perfectly honest, ‘things’ that we buy don’t tend to satisfy us humans for long, no matter what the item is. An item that you see in the store (and think it is love at first sight) becomes old and then you lose it or bury it somewhere in your closet.
Loyalty and Kindness are both attractive qualities.
But I would probably choose kindness. A kind person would show loyalty, but being loyal doesn’t necessarily mean that you are also kind.
You may be loyal for the wrong reasons, or even stick up for what is bad.But if you’re kind then you would do good to others. Also it is nice when you meet someone new and find out and discover their kind personality.
Don’t get me wrong- loyalty is an extremely important quality. But in this situation- I would want to be known as a kind person. Someone who is warm and welcoming and does good things for others. Kindness encompasses so many other positive and endearing attributes – and loyalty is one of them.
I am a writer. I would probably publish my diary. Number 1, I don’t have deep and dark secrets and Number 2 a movie could be quite mortifying. When I write a diary entry, I think, pause, and then scribble.
But a movie would probably capture ALL THE WRONG THINGS. Clips from a movie would probably catch me totally off guard and when I am pulling the most awkward faces. Soo spontaneous!
Also, embarrassing moments (caught on camera) are often more embarrassing than what we right down ourselves. With a diary entry you could probably get all creative and it would even be entertaining to read afterwards. But a movie is just too graphic.
