5 questions with guest interviews

Hi! I’m Arushi and I run Musings of a Whimsical Soul !

I’m a young adult who is trying to become the best kind of adult, one day at a time. My blog is essentially a representation of who I am and what is happening in my life. I happen to be passionate about a lot of things and I frequently write about them here on the blog. These things include but are not limited to reading, writing (If you couldn’t tell that from the fact that I have a blog), travelling, mythology, movies, T.V Shows, trying out new things, food and more that I probably can’t remember or haven’t even found I love yet! I am also often grappling with the highs and lows of adulthood and the thoughts that come as I “grow up”.

In short, over on my blog or my Instagram @musingsofawhimsicalsoul, you’ll find me rambling, stumbling on my words and trying to find my foothold in the infinitely infinite world. (And you’re welcome to join me on my (mis)adventures!)

1. As a travel enthusiast, do you believe in the saying, “It’s not where you’re going but who you’re with?

Absolutely! I think that you develop such a special and unique bond when you go through an experience like travelling to a new city or country with someone and it is very hard to have that kind of a relationship otherwise. It’s the antics that I got up to that stay fresh in my memory rather than the monuments I visited or places I saw. After all, as cliché, as it sounds, it is the truth “Its not the destination, It's the journey.”

2. What hobby have you given up on that you want to go back to now? Why?

I trained as a classical Odissi dancer from when I was 4 to when I was 16, till I had to focus on my studies instead. With lockdown, I have felt the urge to pick that hobby back up, as has everyone, to fulfil that need for familiar and comfortable things in these trying times. I already dug up my old music and have started to re-learn the basics!

3. What are some of the most ridiculously funny assumptions about you?

For some reason, I have the absolutely ridiculous gift of being uber-confident and social around complete strangers. Those who know me well would point out that once well acquainted, I am quite the opposite; an extreme introvert. So I’ve heard the funniest assumptions from people who have only had extremely short doses of me. From thinking I am extroverted all the way to thinking of me as a party girl, I’ve heard it all.

4. Do you think you’ve already known yourself completely by now? Why or why not?

I don’t think so. I don’t think it is possible to know yourself completely at any point in life because I am changing and growing every day.  I don’t even know if I would like to know myself completely at some point because that means I have become stagnant. I hope that for the rest of my life I keep experiencing new things, learning and adapting in an attempt to be better today than I was yesterday.

5. How do you describe your teenage years? 

I definitely think they weren’t the kind of dream years that movies make you think you will have. It was a time of a lot of awkwardness, angst, growth and many experiences. That’s not to say that they were all bad, there were definitely fun times but the fact o the matter remains that I am more than happy to be out of that phase in life, as I’m sure a lot of people would agree.
