fantasy monday: queen for a day

I love this weekly feature because it allows me to become more familiar with my favorite bloggers. Wangari is an almost-25-year-old dreamer from Norway. Until she became my latest fantasy feature, I had no idea we shared more than just a love of fashion and "lazing around": we're both self-described writers, have an indescribable fondness for trees, and a desire for a California adventure. So without further ado...

What is your dream job?
If you would have asked me this question a couple of years ago I would have said journalist (that is what I studied at university) but right now, I have no idea. I know that I want to work within a creative field, but can't seem to narrow it down from film (and tv), fashion or publishing. All those areas have a special place in my heart so if I ended up in one of them I would be more than content.

Show us a photo of your dream home.

If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
I think it would be London. After spending three years of university there, I just fell in love with the city, it really felt like home. But I also would love to live in New York and San Francisco just to see if they could be the place that I feel more at home than London.

Name one thing that keeps you grounded.
A good book. I know it sounds weird, but sometimes my family and friends can be just as demanding and stressful as all the craziness that surrounds me, so being able to escape into a well-crafted book is my saviour.

Where do you wish you could vacation next?

I would love to holiday in California. My dream would be to fly to San Francisco, spend some time there, and then hire a car and drive all the way down the state. Dream stops: Napa Valley, Redwood forest, LA, San Diego, and other small cities along the way. If I could take a small trip to Las Vegas as well that would be amazing.

When you "grow up" [when does that happen, anyway?] where do you see yourself?
I see myself (if I can get over my fears) being a full time author. I love, love to write and if I can make my living doing it I would be so happy and proud of myself. I have written some short stories and poems but nothing extensive (yet) and haven't really tried to get some of my creative writing published (unlike my articles etc). So if I can be that person when I "grow up" that would be beyond amazing.
