I turned twenty five yesterday. Eek. Twenty Five years I’ve been walking this here earth. In one way it seems like a scary large number – quarter of the way through a century and all that. In another way, it feels like barely any time at all. Inside, I don’t feel like I think a twenty five year old should feel, you know what I mean? I’m not all grown-up and responsible. I’m pretty much still living like I did when I was a student (good times 😉 )
I don’t have a ‘significant other’, though that’s not for want of dreaming
I don’t have any dependents; I can’t even keep a goldfish alive!
I don’t have any major assets to my name; no house, no car, no secret hoard of cash
I don’t have a high-flying career
I don’t, if I’m truthful, have much of a life plan other than “London + Publishing ( + dare I say it? Penguin) = Happy Cas” and hell if have any ideas of how to get that plan to reality.
I do, however, have a life I’m enjoying living. That’s actually something I wasn’t sure I’d find a few years back. Most days I go around with a smile on my face from ear to ear, joy in my soul, and knowing that I honestly wouldn’t change a thing about my life as it stands right now. I haven’t got it all sorted out (see the previous paragraph!) but that’s cool with me. Things have a way of sorting themselves out and I’m having good times watching them unfold. So go me and roll on whatever this year has to offer 🙂
But that’s enough about what I think about being twenty five. It’s time you all had a say. I’ve been writing here at Bright Meadow for a good while now, and over the years I’ve shared a fair few things with you, my dear readers. But I’m sure there’s questions you want to ask and things you wish you knew.
Here’s your chance.
I’ll answer the first twenty five questions that get sent in to me, regardless of what they are.
What do you have to do? Simply email me your questions to cas.brightmeadow[at]gmail.com and wait for the post that will follow.
You can ask as many questions as you like. However, if I end up with more than twenty five questions, (no, I have no contingency plan for if I get LESS than 25 questions!) I will take the best question(s) from each person so as many as possible get one of their burning queries answered.
And that’s it. Now it’s over to you to think of the best/most zany questions you can think of. Try to make it something that hasn’t already been talked about. Also please bear in mind that my father, occasionally my brother, and even my boss read the site. I’m all for public humiliation, but let’s try and keep it vaguely decent, please? (Or if not, be prepared for me to fudge my replies some 😉 )
So bring it on!
