In this blog I am answering the questions from The Proust Questionnaire which originated from a parlor game. It is said by answering these questions an individual shows his or her true nature. I personally don’t believe that you can figure out someone's true nature by how they answer questions due to the fact that everyone interprets things differently.
__1.__What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Being with my closest friends and family.
__2.__What is your greatest fear?
I am absolutely terrified of spiders
__3.__What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
__4.__What is the trait you most deplore in others?
When they say they are going to show up at a certain time and they leave you waiting for hours without letting you know they are going to be late. My friend does this every once in a while and i absolutely hate it because i think something happened to him especially when he doesn't pick up the phone.

No one comes to mind.

I’m in a pretty positive place which is a welcome change from my normal anxiety inducing mindset.
