A writer once said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” If this is true, which five people would you like to spend your time with?
Another interesting daily prompt for today. It reminds me of the “who are four/five/six people dead or live you’d like to have dinner with?“.
The answer to today’s prompt is not too simple. Because I’m a “complicated” person (in the good way!, as per Alex’s statement). And I have learned that I need to surround myself with positive people.
First on the list is, of course, my husband, Alex. He’s been my best friend for years. He still teaches me a lot of new things – Hungarian being the most recent on the list. Plus, he’s a computer wizard.
Anthony Bourdain . He’s sort of an “idol”, but not for his lifestyle. His travels are what got me into keeping an eye on his work (and I love his blog, too). He’s the necessary dose of irony we all need.
Carrie Bradshaw – hey, no one said they have to be real people! So I can most certainly befriend a character. And my hero, remember? She’s the one who “teaches” me about men and relationships in general – although I am perfectly capable of making mistakes on my own.
Nicholas Spark . I’ve recently read three of his best sellers and since I am currently writing a book of my own – in Romanian – I am intrigued to learn more about the whole process. And how in the world he can be so good at it!
My coordinator at work. He’s not “my boss”, we are colleagues and sort of started to be friends, too. I am interested in his perception about the US and the working environment. Also, I can learn a lot from him, both to help me with my job and life, in general.
