Eugenia would like to know:

jessica_hochberg

What will you be when you grow up?
Old and still short.

What makes you happy?

Nature, looking out over mountains and feeling that sense of individual insignificance.

What is happiness?
A dog trying to take in all of the smells at the park. Nose down, tail wagging.

Do you prefer the great outdoors or the great indoors?
There can be no great indoors without the great outdoors. There would simply be no doors.

What do you do there?
Smell the smells, walk the walks. Try and also experience the joy that the dog is getting.

Do you look at or avoid mirrors?
Look at. Don’t want food in your teeth do you?

What’s your favourite colour?
Green and Blue

Tell me about a song OR scene from a film that evokes a particular time, memory, experience, story for you…
The scene in Picnic at Hanging Rock where Miranda wanders off. So ethereal, so spooky. When I visited hanging rock I spent the entire time being terrified of mysteriously dissapearing.

What’s the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen?
Too hard! The smile on my boyfriends bearded face after he catches a good wave?

If you have travel planned for the future, where will you go and what will you do there?
Camping in the Grampians one weekend soon, I’ll show my friends McKenzie falls and the lookout. Too stunning!

Ever wanted to know what it’s like in another person’s shoes?
I already know- I’ve worn shoes from opshops.

Who would you consider swapping a day in your life with?
My boyfriends business partner.

Why?
Just to get the opportunity to spend 24 hours getting stuff really organised without appearing to be interfering.
