How well do you know yourself

Posted by Claudia Moser on 11:13 AM
Based on Gretchen Rubin's blog and suggestions I have considered answering a list of questions added by Michael Melcher in his last book, The Creative Lawyer.

1. What part of the newspaper do you read first?
If in Romania always the last page, here the front-page with the main titles.

2. What are three books you’ve read in the past year?
Last books from the last months:
Der Termin by Tom de Marco - project management in German, tough but made it!
The Purrfect Murder by Rita Mae Brown
La vieille dame de Bayeaux by Georges Simenon

3. As a child, what did you do in your free time?
Strange! Read, play with my friends and ask many questions that started with WHY?!

4. What’s a goal that has been on your list for a few years?
Start a family.

5. What do you actually do with your free time?
Clean (i.e. wash, iron - it relaxes me and gets a break into my rythm after a working day), read, surf, write, watch crime series, walk with Peter in the city, look for a new flat, plan holidays, smile, laugh, spend time with friends, paint ...

6. What types of activities energize you?
Ironing - LOL
And on a more serious note: reading old crime novels, watch old crime series (i.e. Colombo, The Avengers), window shop for shoes (especially looking for the perfect red pumps), enjoy a cup of coffee on a terrace under the sun, and yes! talk on the phone with my mother since she is so far away so I can't actually talk to her face to face.

7. What famous people intrigue you?
Hm ... Agatha Christie, George Soros, Hillary Clinton, Madonna ...

Thank you for your comments, I appreciate them all!


"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
