Fill In the Blank Friday

For this week's edition of Fill In the Blank Friday, I pulled some questions from the infamous Proust Questionnaire.

What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
Loneliness; not necessarily being by yourself which I actually quite like but the kind in which you could be surrounded by others but still feel empty.

Where would you like to live?
I love where I was born and raised (Pittsburgh) but in an ideal world, I would own homes all over the world and travel quite often. Pittsburgh is beautiful, though. I love its rolling hills, four seasons, culture, people, architecture, livability... it's home sweet home for sure.



What is your idea of earthly happiness?
Love, freedom, creative expression, generosity, friendship, knowledge, something to look forward to, experience...

Who are your favorite heroes of fiction?
I tend to gravitate toward nonfiction books and my own imagination but Ja'mie King from Chris Lilley's Summer Heights High has given me enough laughs to last a lifetime. I wish I had a more philosophical response but I'd rather keep it real. I also really enjoyed Daria growing up. I always felt I was a mixture between Daria and her sister Quinn.

Quinn Morgendorffer













Your favorite painter?
I love just about all of John William Waterhouse's work but one of my favorite paintings is Midsummer Eve by Edward Robert Hughes.

Echo and Narcissus. Waterhouse, 1903.


Midsummer Eve. Edward Robert Hughes, 1908.






































Your favorite musician?
I have quite a few but one would be Paolo Nutini. He sings with such an incredible amount of emotion and depth. The boy's got soul.

"No Other Way" by Paolo Nutini
*This is one of the most beautiful songs/performances I've ever heard.


The quality you most admire in a man?
Generally speaking, a gentleman.

The quality you most admire in a woman?
Warmth.

Your favorite virtue?
Of the four traditional Cardinal virtues, prudence.

Your favorite occupation?
Writer/Author.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
